Sketchbook stuff

Okay.  Stephen's back!!  I know ya'all missed me!  (*yeah. . . whatever* jajaja!)  okay, so I just thought I'd share a bit of what I've been up to.  I hope ya'all digs!

I know the first two were carried through to completion, but they were done in my sketchbook first. . .  Everything (excepting the chameleon) were done as emulations or concept work.

Concept work for personal film.  Lines done in pencil, colored/textured in CS5 Photoshop.

Idea for shirt

Hey, I thought of an idea, and if isn't good, then ohh well. Maybe everyone creates a sketch they like and then the shirt is just covered in the sketches made by everyone in the club, or everyone who wants a t-shirt.

Anyways, just a thought.

Hogwarts sketchbook

These are a couple doodles I did in my sketchbook. The top one is me on my first day of School at Hogwarts. Yeah Hufflepuff pride!!! The second one is a close friend with a fire salamander; silly slytherins.

Cyborg Turkey

Never try coloring something in photoshop without a graphics tablet: this was with my finger on the tracking pad.

While my nephew was playing with playdough I decided to find a toothpick and draw him on playdough.

Jake Parker Workshop Scribble Drawing

Hey! Hey, you guys!

Here's my scribble drawing from that fantastic Jake Parker workshop.
I am gonna shed a tear (and you should, too) because NOW I am actually an active member of this blog. Yep, I finally saw the light.

Also, I have been meaning to post my witch and scarecrow, but I'll get to that later.
Hopefully I'll be better about not procrastinating.
Well . . . you guys! Have a chipper day!

The blog topic for the next two weeks will be...

T-Shirt Design by Kendall

Thought Id throw this shirt design up.

Or the caption on the bottom could read something like: Where else are you going to see a lumberjack fighting a space dinosaur?
Anyway, that's my submission

Jake Parker Workshop

The first two are my creative challenge drawings from the Jake Parker Workshop. The third is a head drawing I did of a guy in my ward who visited our apartment tonight. If I'm talking to you, I might as well be drawing your head at the same time.

PS WE MADE IT INTO THE DAILY UNIVERSE! Awesome job. Also, if you see Jake Parker, make sure to thank him profusely for his time spent on the workshop he gave. It was really kind of him and he did a fantastic job. I'd like to challenge everyone to try that "100 things" activity he suggested.

Friday 10/28 Workshop

here the drawings from the creative thing, I feel like a kid again.

Friday, October 28, 2011

So, this is my result from the random scribble thing at Jake's discussion today. I darkened the lines I started with. Can't wait to see what everyone else has done~!


So I think the t-shirt designs are due like today and I noticed that there aren't any up on the blog yet so I thought I would throw some out there... I actually have a chance to win if no one else posts anything! :) That would be cool, but we might end up with terrible t-shirts since these are just doodles from one of my classes today! The First one is a rip off of the I heart NY with SKB instead and the other is a hot air balloon shapped like the world that says the world is our campus. It is kind of hard to read, but I didn't have a lot of time to put this into a computer. This was shot with my phone camera! Anyways enjoy and post better stuff please!!!

Jake Parker's Workshop

Here's my interpretation of the make-a-drawing-out-of-a-squiggly-line game! I think it's a dinosaur trying to eat a mechanical fruit. Yeah. Steampunk dinosaurs. I'm gonna go somewhere with this.

Coolest thing Ever!

A website I stumbled across whilst researching thai fisherman pants.  Ok, I'm a nerd, but this is seriously cool, and some great inspiration:

1st Post!

Hey guys, this is Josh.  I've been sketching, but not posting, and the guilt has been welling up inside me    like a  forgotten water-balloon on the faucet.  So; here you go :)

These are all like a month old, i still need to scan conference . . .

"Bandit at Sebus"- one of the Lamanite mauraders who attacked Ammon in the Book of Mormon, Alma chapter ~18?  oh yeah, and crazy Lamanite nunchuck swords!  We're going for historical accuracy, folks ;)

Mahonri the Earth Bender!  Ether 12:30- "For the brother of Jared said unto the mountain Zerin, Remove—and it was removed."

Ok, so I was collecting dendelions, manly man that i am, and i thought, rather randomly - 'hmm, what if there was a sailing airship that flew the same way dandelions do?' so yeah.  I'd like to do a painting of it at some point, after I finish everything I'm currently procrastinating.  huzzah!

Ok, so there was a presentation in the HFAC about a month ago that involved a dance off.  And . . . yup.

Joseph Smith's first vision

Another sketch from the aforementioned presentation.  It concluded with Michelangelo the Ninja Turtle's interpretation of "Oliver Twist".  A lot of the big name actors do stints on stage or in broadway after their hollywood career starts to wane.  I had wondered what ever happened to that guy . . . .

Some caricatures...

Everyone, meet Melissa and Natasha.

I don't know if anyone else agrees, but that caricature workshop was RAD. I'd love to see a follow up.

Zoo + Caricatures (Kendall Hale

Aight, so I went to the zoo and didn't actually draw there - but when I got home, I spent about 8 hours drawing gorillas. Just gorillas. Here's a few:

And here are a few caricatures from this past Saturday (thanks again Kim!)

Yeah, it just so happened that I only got girls for partners during the workshop. Whoooooops...
