A Different Kind of Snowy Owl

I wanted to do a simple painting of a great horned owl in the snow.
But I put in a lot more effort than I expected :P

It's all because of feathers!
I don't know how to paint and color feathers properly without making it look ugly.
So I kept trying and ended up with something that isn't too bad!
This painting is also an iphone wallpaper for my boyfriend.

I'm painting snow already in hopes for cooler weather -_______-

too hot....

CalArts Schedule

Hey peeps!
I am posting my second year schedule at CalArts.
Who has the same schedule as me???

The yellow blocks are the ones that I need to sign up for, or I'm debating about.
The blue ones are for sure.
Also, I'm going to be a TA this year and I'm super excited about it!

Here we go second year!
Or not quite yet...

update** I've changed Acting for Animators to Screenwriting for Animators!

Idea For Second Year Film?

I've been thinking of a story for my second film.
But I kind of fail at storytelling, so for now I did a quick concept sketch.
It's going to be about a boy who falls in love with the spirit/goddess of the beach during sunset.
(For now, I gave the boy the same hair as Sokka from Avatar, but I
definitely want the boy to be from some kind of tribe...)
Mythology has always been interesting to me, so maybe I can make up my own.

This is it for now.... -______-
I'm only thinking about bits and pieces of the film but not the whole thing.
I can't even come up with a proper story, but I'm sure that will come in time.
I hope... :P

Movie Poster and Header

For DoodlePoops this week, we are redesigning movie posters!
So I decided to draw my own version of Kill Bill 2.
Because drawing a sexy kick ass girl is always fun :)

Also, I designed a new header for the blog to continue practicing some lighting.
(I'll figure out how to center it soon enough...)
I've been collecting all sorts of images of lighting coming from windows.
And I've also been loving window nooks because they're so cozy.
I definitely want one when I have a house!
Ideally, I would love to change the header for the seasons and holidays.
I can change the colors and have the cat and cockatoo be wearing accessories.
But school might get the better of me so we'll see what happens :P

Hello August

I realize that I haven't been posting as much as I want to...
I don't think I ever do :P
I wanted to post some pictures from this year's Chinese painting exhibition, but I haven't even done that.
My next post shall be the pictures then!
Summer has been very relaxing, and it's nice to work on my own projects.
But it's too dang HOT!
You'd think after living in so cal my entire life I'd be used to it... I'm not -_____-
I try not to work next to anything electronic until it's after 8pm.
And I try not to use the AC too much because it can be expensive... especially in the valley.
It sounds like a terrible excuse but maybe that's why I haven't been posting/working as much as I want to

So when I'm not sitting in front of the computer ... I'm watching Avatar the Last Airbender!
And it's awesome! I am so in love with the show.
I actually just finished it today and I'm re-watching some episodes to remember certain things.
And also to do this quick sketch of my boyfriend and me as air benders riding Appa, the air bison :)

August is the last month of summer vacation, and it's not going to last very long.
Which is good... because the weather will be cooler and I can see my friends again at school.
