Christmas Stuff

I haven't updated in a while, but not for lack of material. I put together some Christmas presents this year for people, and its what the majority of my creative work has been working towards. I am working on learning anatomy now, but that is another post.

The first piece here is the Rifleman's Creed for my marine brother-in-law. The whole thing is there in order, though you probably can't see it all at internet size.

The second is a "portrait" of my friend's husband, who has some inside-joke connections to Superman.

The last five are my Christmas cards this year. There were 3 variations, with the first image being the cover, the next three being the various insides, and the final being the back where I wrote my jolly Christmas message. The theme is how kids like to take all the mundane leftovers of Christmas and turn them into toys and let their imaginations take over.

I should really update in streams, rather than in big chunks. But formatting the pictures to put on here one at a time is really a pain in the butt.

This is the latest stuff I've been doing. Trying to get away from pencil for everything but not ready to start painting yet. So I've been using brush pen to ink my drawings. Its gotten me out of a rut, which is good. I needed to get out of my rut, according to the life coach I drew to really encourage myself.

I've felt like this a lot lately. Don't ask me what that means specifically, because I have no idea.

Mine blog stands largely neglected...

So here I post.

The Death of Newborn and a New Background

I gave up on Newborn because it has become pretty clear that my lack of color theory understanding has become obvious. So I am just posting the last stage I got to.

The second image is an old digital painting I did which I turned into a 1650x1050 desktop.

Newborn is holding a major contest called Newborn that has a -ton- of amazing prizes. I couldn't resist, so I am entering the contest. My interpretation involves the Fall. This is how the piece has evolved from the start, until where I stand as of 7.21.09.

French Rugby Guy

A portrait for fun. He is some french rugby player guy, but ended up looking something like James Marsden.

I made a very bad drawing the other day, so I felt I needed to do an academic painting of shiny metal. Its a cast painting, or a black and white painting used solely for the purpose of a value study. I actually took screenshots as a went along, the first at 1.5 hours, the second at 2.5, and the final which took 3.5 hours, give or take.

So in the grind of my application for the CAA, I have neglected this page as Taylor has so kindly pointed out. I'm glad he did, this is some stuff I haven't posted before. Its all mostly old stuff, except the spikey guy. He's new.

My name... is Marcus Wright

I've been on a Terminator Salvation kick lately with my drawings. I don't know that its going to be a good movie, as much as I would like it to be, but the trailer is an amazing bit of film in its own right. Thus my new obsession.

Adam had me watch Afro Samurai recently, and I was pretty impressed. My two favorite parts were the title sequence and the character Kuma, who is basically like Darth Vader except with a teddy bear head instead of a nazi helmet. This is him at the end of the film, covered in headbands of the men he's killed. Love the design of it...

Juried Student Show Piece

The first painting here is the old Blue Girl, done in my Watercolor II class a long time ago. I decided to make a painting that matched her somewhat, so I made the second painting over the last few days, and named her Blue Two. Very original, I know.

Today were the submissions for studio art pieces for the OSU Juried Student Show. I didn't have any work that I felt was ready to submit, so I started Blue Two on Tuesday and worked until 7 am this morning finishing it up for submission.

Senior Graphic Design Show

Well, here it is. The senior design show had a great turnout for the reception. Here is all my work from the show. Thanks to everyone that came out, especially if you drove some distance. I really, truly, deeply appreciate it.
