Octopus + Tiger Art Projects

Here are some projects I'm working on. The first two are prints from a linoleum block that I carved. I still have other styles of this design that I'm working on. But, here are a few examples of what I've done so far. So far I'm very happy with the out come.

The last image is a picture of my in progress painting. I still have a lot more to do, but I'm happy with how it's coming along. Especially the tiger's face. The image that I'm painting from is shown next to it.  It looks a lot better in person.

Actually, both of these projects look better in person haha.

Themes Art Class Assignments

Here are two assigments that were due today in my Themes art class.

We were given 3 prompts to choose from and I picked the one "A drawing of your bike or car."
 Believe it or not but this is representative of my car. My car is a Hyundai Tiburon, which means "shark" in Spanish. So, I drew a mechanical shark surrounded by generic/stereotypical Latin culture party decorations etc. I also wrote Bruce on his side because that is the name of my car. (I got it from the shark in Finding Nemo named Bruce, who was named after the mechanical shark in Jaws. So it's pretty deep haha).

This was my piece for our main project. I did it in pen and ink. It's a drawing of the Hercules monument in Kassel, Germany (where my grandmother was born and raised).

Over all I guess I'm okay with it, but at the same time I have major issues with it. *sigh* Oh well, I guess I'm still learning/getting better haha. The lettering was done on an old style printing press.

Some Printed Images

Here are some prints I did in my beginning print class. You can see the learning curve I went through from the not so great bottom ones to the better ones on the top.

Some Old Artwork

    So, I just want to showcase some of the art work that I've done in the past. It's not necessarily my bets work, but it is the work I currently have pictures of on my computer.

 A painting of a memorial to my deceased fish.
 A large drawing using pen and Sharpie. It got a little muddled and I wish it had come out slightly different. But, over all I'm happy with it.
 A pen and ink picture of a monster pet. This one was fun. It was based off of a stick monster that we had to make in class.
A drawing using, colored pencil, oil pastel, ink, and, charcoal. It's also fairly big.
