Dinosaurs for Lolah!

Hello there! So I've been wanting to make these dinosaur characters for my little baby niece who is 2 years of age. Her name is Lolah. She's been obsessed with dinosaurs ever since I got her Dino Pajamas when she was 1 and some months. So I made these here drawings for her and my sister as a Christmas present! 

These are only 3 out of 5 that I was originally panning to make. The next 2 are going to be a Triceratops and an Archeopteryx.

The Long Journey Home

Here is the film that I worked on throughout the semester for my animation class, ANI 115. There are a lot of rough scenes and I hope to finalize everything soon, but here it is as I have shown it on the final day. I hope you gain something from my intended story but if not I hope you are at least entertained for the time that I have your attention. Thank you, and stay drawing!

Now for something interesting

My professor sir David Chai challenged me to make this. He didn't expect it to happen. But here it is. A redo of my initial brick drop animation.
Here is my favorite project from my animation class. Our character walk assignment. Hope you enjoy!

Now time for some moving pictures!

Here is a culmination of my normal tests from the first animation class, ANI 114. Each one came with a new challenge and a new building block to build upon animation. Here's to a future in 2D animation.

More Gorillas

Here's some drawings of Gorillas that was a part of our weekly homework assignment. I enjoy drawing gorilla faces. Still figuring out the shape and form mechanics.

I forgot to post this last year....

So I feel like my gorilla drawing skills have increased exponentially. I've been drawing them for about 4 weeks now and at first it was rather difficult. But i see now how easy it is to relate them to the human figure...
 Gorillas are naturally very peaceful creatures. they don't want to hurt anyone or anything unless under attack. In fact, even if a Gorilla was angry enough to charge you, it would most likely stop halfway. The purpose of a charging Gorilla is just to scare possible predators off. Being an 800 pound gorilla I can't imagine that being too difficult a task.
  As with every species of Gorilla the adult male is known as the Silver Back, due to it's grayish fur that appears as it grows into adulthood. And as highlander would say, "there can be only one."
 Eastern Lowland Gorillas are vegetarians or herbivores, eating mostly fruits and various foliage around the jungles they travel.

     Gorillas are happiest when in their natural environment. they love theur families and raise lots of baby gorillas, and move from place to place. They are nomadic creatures.
But when they are put in zoos, they are not at home and they see the same trees and grass the rest of their lives.  
This is what I've learned from spending time with these marvelous creatures.

Just kinda got inspired

Sketchy mini-illustration of recently inspired thoughts. I might try to make a painting out of it and practice better lighting techniques. I might just do a better inked out one. OR! I might animate whats happening. WHO KNOWS!?! lol I like All the ideas. A good practice in storytelling. It probably looks like scratches right now but I hve an idear in there lol

Random Sketch of the Day

So I decided since I don't really post stuff on here regularly, I might as well put something... SOOO Im gong to post up random loose pages that I draw on throughout the day.
Some Monster thoughts
Also this is some sketches of my game idea. The player will have control of a giant megabeast alien and the gaol is to devour the little tiny alien.

Finally... Gorillas

I find forillas faces fascinating due to their expressive features and wrinkles and such. In hopes that I could capture at least a fraction of these features I decided to go ahead and focus some pages on Gorill faces. Or a page I should say. More work to come. Definitely not satisfied but I think I'm getting used to the faces. My gorilla portraits seem to look closer to chimps or some random mountain monkey. Oh well. Always room for improvement.

Also I like to draw gorillas enormous pillar-like forearms. They remind me of the incredible Hulk.
