Sketching from Google Earth

There were times when I'd waste hours away on Google Earth, and just looking at random countries. I find Google Earth to be slightly addictive, but I thought it could benefit me if I drew sketches from it. As the street view cameras are panoramic, it makes it more interesting to draw from instead of drawing from a photograph. Having panoramic images allow me to look around the landscape as I was sketching. These drawings are speed paintings done in Photoshop and I didn't spend much time on them, and kept them quite rough. I focused on natural landscapes this time, but I'd like to tackle city landscapes next.

Life Drawing Class- Photoshop Enhancement

I joined the first year's life drawing class briefly last week, and did some rough sketches of the model. However the drawings were rushed and I also photographed the sketches poorly. So I took the images into Photoshop to enhance the brightness and contrast of the drawings and then decided to paint over the sketched in selected parts using the magic tool.

Updated Animation Reel

I decided to make an updated show reel, so I have something to show in case I apply for work experience or intern placements. Most of the work in this reel is from the past two years at uni, however I have a few clips of something I made before this course.
