working on something new

coffee stain

Posted in craft, sketch, WIP with tags , on February 28, 2010 by yuquan

i spilled some coffee into my sketch book one day and i tried to make something out of the mess. I am also restricting myself to only use pencil to darken some spots. That way it doesn’t take too much away from the coffee stain itself. It’s still a work in progress but i’m forcing myself to finish things quick nowadays because of a very constructive conversation i had with a few colleagues.

fake “dream job” 2nd assignment

Posted in finished., sketch, WIP with tags , , on December 12, 2009 by yuquan

so in continuation with my last post about the “dream job” assignment, a couple of months later, it’s time the professor ask for the 2nd set to the assignment. At this point i really don’t want to venture into this assignment anymore. It wasn’t something i originally wanted to do. i wrote down a couple of other things that makes America messed up and showed them to the professor. He really likes the idea about “depended on technology” and he found me this article about interacting on facebook and twitter. The author of the article emphasized on how people don’t have much of an organic experience talking face to face anymore and instead turn to internet social tools like facebook and twitter which only gives bits and pieces of info about the person thru text and pictures.

here’s what i did.

fake “dream job” 1st assignment

Posted in sketch, WIP with tags , , on December 12, 2009 by yuquan

It’s a rough semesters. To speed you the reader up to things, i got this assignment that was called “what is your dream job” and we pick something that we think is our dream job in illustrations. So originally i wanted to draw images for the book “Gulliver’s Travel” that sounds GREAT. all except that my professor played devils advocate with me and kept changing my original idea. now it evolved to drawing editorials relating to negative changes in America.

my first one was about corruption in the pharmaceutical industry. here’s my picture.

i couldn’t really put much effort into it being that it wasn’t my original dream job. if i have free time, i would go back and fix the snake, it’s supposed to be made out of pills.

animal train

Posted in sketch, WIP with tags , on May 20, 2009 by yuquan

i had a project where we need to draw something that is not of this reality, or maybe something that is to our perception that other people can’t see. Sorta like how the Matrix is, the “real” world and the non real one. its a very open assignment, it can be almost anything. so i did this!

scifi-sketchwhenever i’m sitting on the train and i look at people i always see their features and exaggerate them to the point where i would think if they were reincarnated, this is the animal they would be.

animaltrainthen came the color comp on photoshop to see how well the colors can go with each other. and if you noticed i moved the monkey a bit further back because it fits well where the negative space of the giraffe was. i thought of replacing it with a mouse listening to headphones. 

DSC_3551_001then came the gouache version, i changed my mind on the mouse because it wasnt porportionally correct in size compared to all the others. so i had an alligator instead, i also like the pig in the back, i made him picking his nose because these are all the things i see on the train. it’s still a work in progress though, i’ll come back to it in a few weeks or so.

lemme know what you guys think.
