Character Project


For this project, we had to design a character based after ourselves. There are 3 "panels" that show the character in 3 different scenes. Basically, I decided to make my character a kindergarten teacher - who has a frustrating day but ends it on a high note with a nice, warm, relaxing bath. Much more to come... I have a lot of final projects to show!

Calvin and Hobbes - Escape

The theme of this comic is "Escape" - also done for my Sequential Art class. I need to fix up the line work in a lot of spots (and the right most panel isn't in yet, character design needs to be switched out, etc!!). Just wanted to show a preview of what I'm working on...

Book Spreads


In the style of Masha Dyans - these are the tight sketches of three little stories. I'll post the first set of stories today, and the next one tomorrow, etc. The objective was to create three short stories around a list of story devices we were given. Then we did a few iterations of drawings, and one final render (full color) or one spread. The frog from a previous post was part of one of the final renders. I did those in watercolor, and will post them in a few days.

Look... a Stool...

Modeled this quickly in class today so the students could import this as a reference for size/proportion because our model was seated on a similar stool.

Frog Illustration


Part of a longer tale that I illustrated and painted in watercolor. The colors are a bit blown out/off from the quality of the scan... but this is a start!

Final Project

So I fell in love with the work of Brittney Lee (britsketch.blogspot.com). She's incredible. I'm trying to emulate that style for a final project in Sequential Drawing... based off of the story of the Five Chinese Brothers (which I'm changing to sisters I think... because girls are more fun to draw)!!

Dr. Sketchy's Philadelphia

This afternoon I went to Dr. Sketchy's Philly with Dan. It was Anti-Valentine's day/jilted bride/some other metaphor themed with this amazing model named Scooter Pie. Absolutely incredible. She did some really tough poses for 20 minutes at a time! Very impressive. Here's one or two things I drew while there. I'm really rusty on my live-drawing and definitely think I need to practice some more!!

The images are pretty terrible because I took them with a camera with flash instead of scanning... when I get a chance, I'll try and put up some better images.

Senior Project and such

Sorry for the hiatus! I took a posting break over the holiday vacation that turned into a bit of an extended hiatus. I will have some fun stuff to post shortly... but for now, check out my senior project blog at http://kru-penn.blogspot.com. There isn't much on there yet - save for some background reading and proposals - but the aim of the project is to study the RenderMan interface, the RenderMan Shading Language, and to implement some interesting textures in PRMan. Should be fun!
