Sirius, Dumbledore and Filch

Its almost time for Deathly Hallows part 2!!! So I decided to share some Harry Potter fan art... :) above is a piratey looking Filch (sadly without Mrs Norris!)
Dumbledore again
Sirius (my favorite character <3)
jealous/ angry Ron....

probably like every other harry potter fan out there, i do a ton of HP drawings but i think this is the first time i'm ever really sharing it with anyone :0

**ALSO this is my 107th post :D....... 7!**

Mr Rochester

my version of Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre! I was experimenting with using different brushes in Photoshop and tried to keep this a little more loose and sketchy :) it only took an hour or so to paint and i generally like the feel of it. I think i'll be trying out more like this!

poor, obscure, plain, and little

I just finished reading Jane Eyre last night and it was wonderful :) heres a little doodle I did of Jane! I have a Mr Rochester and Blanch Ingram on there way too and some Emily of New Moon Sketches! (oh goodness i'm so dorky) I've just been reading a lot of wonderful books lately and I've been influenced :)

does anyone have any book suggestions? I've just read 4 books all with pretty serious/ kind of sad/ bittersweet endings and i want something a little more light hearted! I have Robinson Crusoe that i might read.. do you know of any classics that are happy? :s lol

also...**shakes fist at blogger** you destroyed the colours of my painting!!

Popular roughs

This summer i'm attempting to animated (or partially animate?) the song "Popular" from the musical "Wicked" :) I was inspired by the storyboards by Heidi Jo Gilbert to attempt to do something that i actually wanted to see! i was also trying to emulate the style of Secret of Kells and I'm a Monster with these designs (theyre very rough, they were just done so i kind of had an idea of the characters to start my boards!). hopefully by the end of the summer, i'll have a leica reel with some pencil test animation cut into it and a bunch of layout and design work! I have a ton of work ahead of me, but i'm excited :)
i would love some critiques on these designs and how you think they might work (or not work) when animated!

also heres the song for any one thats curious :)

Muzzle Sync

Sort of old unfinished animation :s just posting it because! one thing i learned while animating this...dont try to animate a character without a solid design for it first..i thought i could just figure him out as i went along..and i think my piece suffered because of that :( well i wont be doing it again! more animation to come soon!!
