My Favorite Breakfast

I go to sleep thinking about this breakfast sometimes...
Try it!

It's half a toasted english muffin topped with:
gouda cheese
sautéed spinach
sliced hard boiled eggs (I take out some of the egg yolk!)
a pinch of salt


Midnight Painting

I obviously need to practice lighting :P
So I did this small painting to start things off!

Loop Animation for LoopdeLoop

Here is a little animation project that I've been working on for LoopdeLoop's June submission.
It took much longer than I thought it would, and in the end I kind of rushed to finish it.
It was fun but it just reminds me of my mistakes as an animator :P
Animating more than I need to! Rawr.
But for this month's challenge, I had the idea in my head and I just had to do it.

Maybe next time, I'll tone it down a bit because I need to learn to limit myself.
The loop is 16 seconds. So next time I'll challenge myself to make it much shorter.

As of now, the only thing that I like in the animation is the flag...

By the way! The music is original by Jake Smith.

Happy (early) Father's Day!

I'm really enjoying painting in Photoshop this summer.
I finally feel a little more caught up with using Photoshop :P
For Mother's Day and Father's Day, I've been painting little illustrations and making them into cards.
I am posting my painting for Father's Day. I still have a bit more to add to it, like some basic lighting and a background.
But this is pretty much it.
My dad does happen to have somewhat purple-y lips, and I think my lips are naturally darker too so you can probably tell which girl I am in the painting.

Anyways, Happy Father's Day!

Animated gifs are fun

I just learned how to make little animated gifs - click to view!
I will be building on this animation to make it into a jump rope test :)
So it's definitely not finished yet :P
(the jumping seems a bit off to me..............)
