Time to cut the ribbon on a new art thread!
Seeing as my old thread was well... old, and pretty jumbled, I think the thread was due for a facelift.

I'm an Illustration major, so I draw quite a bit. I'll make sure to keep things organized, though!

Let's roll




My final for one of my classes. This was for my Adobe Illustrator-centric class. Seeing as how I haven't been on the best of terms with Illustrator this semester, I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.
Everything you see here was vectored by me (excluding text). And yes. I had to vector that entire iPad there. Even the tiny little apps. From scratch. Just to shrink it down that tiny. Yup.



A quick 15 minute-ish drawing of Rose from Homestuck.
I was feelin' real stressed earlier this week and drawing angsty stressed people helped me vent a little. I kept the sloppiness of the brushes in; I really liked that.


Thanks for reading! <3

Re: galleria de Calliope

No replies yet? This is an outrage!

Calliope, damn, I love your style. I don't know which one I like best, The sweet Red Riding Hood one or the awesome quick sketchy piece.

I like how you use solid and bold colours in your illustrations, especially in the first piece. Black, white and red always work well together. <3

I don't really understand much on how to make vector images or just the overview of vector images in general (apart from the fact that they aren't raster pictures), but, is it hard? o-o You make it sound like it's hard!

To the sketchy one; while you may have drawn it in an uncomfortable mood of being stressed, I love the energy that's coming out of this one!



I'd love to see any of your illustrations in books, or on other merchandise Your style is unique and your technique is beautiful. <3

Re: galleria de Calliope

Both peices are great. I think your work translated very well into the vector style of illustrator. I hate illustrator. It's just not how I like to work. But that image is very eye catching and simple, but still very you.

First off, ohmygoodness, thank you! <3

I can't really explain vector myself, since it's pretty complicated, but it's kinda the opposite of pixel/raster imaging? Lol dunno TAKE IT AWAY, WIKIPEDIA

Working in Illustrator can be a pain often, yeah. It's a very... exact program. You move one tiny little anchor point and the whole thing could go to the dogs. I've definitely said some no-no words while working in Illustrator. It really intimidated me until I took this class, and even though the class made me lose about 5 years of my life, I learned a whole lot, and I'm not quite intimidated anymore!

But yeah, when it comes to Illustrator, patience is of virtue

Thanks!! <3
I totally know what you mean about Illustrator, though. I guess you can say we are what the whippersnappers today refer to as "frenemies".
Most of the stuff I made in the class was utter rubbish and made me pull out a lot of hair, but I'm damn glad I got one good piece out of it all!

Hey, Calli. Loving your Ipad2 ad and your choice of colors-- it's all too captivating. Makes an awesome ad and nicely done Illustrator assignment.
Looking forward to your newer stuff.

Re: galleria de Calliope

Thanks, IGNIS!
I know I'll have a few new things to post.
I'm really excited to show you guys this one thing, but I have to wait for one of my team members to upload it...

BUT ANYWAY- here's the very last thing I worked on this semester


Just a dude running away. I made up some silly story that he was running away to join the Ice Capades cause everyone made fun of his bowl cut... yeah.
This was another piece for my Children's Book Illustration studio. I want something with a background

I'm done for the semester! Wohoo! Happy summer vacation!

Oh, and before I forget, I found this precious jewel in one of my folders,



Look at that shading. The anatomy. The raw emotion!
My favorite part is when "freddy putes out!"

Re: galleria de Calliope

Big update ahoy!

I have a video!

This video was a team project I did as my final for my Tradigital studio. (traditional + digital = tradigital!)
I was really lucky to have my good friend/former roommate on my team, who is a guru with Adobe AfterEffects. So all the credit for the actual video compiling should go to him and our other teammate. I have little to no animation experience. (Zach taught me how to make a star and circle zig-zag sporadically around in AfterEffects and thaaat's it) So all the characters/ designs are me. I made the "puppets" of the characters and then sent them to the other guys for animatinz'.

I can't seem to figure out how to embed Vimeo on here- so here's the link!
The Tale of Susan (rough cut) on Vimeo
(and like what it says on the tin, this is a rough cut. we ran out of time and kinda had to rush some things)

Here's some of the images I drew for the video! They were intentionally kept real simple. And there were about a bazillion layers. Each and every joint and pupil was on a different layer.





And the storyboards I did! I'm only posting a few, because there are about 40 total. So here's just a few... completely out of order :3




And also, fanart on my dorky tumblr. I actually draw way more fanart than I let on. I dunno why, but I'm always sorta embarrassed to post 'em ;_;

AND I'M DONE WITH MY JUNIOR YEAR! I'll be a senior next year. Gotta start looking for internships and jobs and eek the real world eeeek

Thanks for reading!

Re: galleria de Calliope

Oh wow, I can't believe I didn't say this already, but your iPad 2 piece is ASTONISHING.
I absolutely love it. The trees are gorgeous and her face is perfect. Love ittt. I also really love your still images for the Susan video, really lovely and simple, but still really expressive.

but I love your stuff, what else is new right.
amazing as always~~

Dont know much about these characters, but I like this one a lot. It's pretty freaky looking, what with the eyeball and all.... nice work going on. :]

Congrats on your 200 followers too!

That Tumblr animation is so adorable!

Every time I look at it, I get a smile. I don't know why.

Love your work, as always <333

Re: galleria de Calliope

Thanks guys! <3333

got some more stuff up in hurr


An art trade with my obscenely talented friend and brother from another mother, Courtney


15 min Link doodle. I obviously had Skyward Sword on the brain judging by those colors


Terezi from Homestuck! I've been on a gif rampage, I tells ya


More from my gif rampage


A Dave from Homestuck, done as kind of a silly homage to one of my all-time favorite illustrators, JC Leyendecker

Whew, so that's just a bunch of stuff I've done over the past few weeks. I never seem to produce stuff as... "final" as I do while I'm in school, but I'm okay with that.

Also, has anyone been having issues editing their OPs here in the art section? I literally have not been able to edit my first post here (to add in the new art post links) since the server change, it always takes me to that dang "cannot be found" page. D'OY

Re: galleria de Calliope

Oh wow Calli, those are fantastic and adorable! <33

If I would have to choose my favourites, it would be the first and last one. That first girl is the best in my opinion. I love the textured bright background that you've added behind her! It adds that extra touch.

And that guy in the black suit - superb! The way he blends into the black background is awesome <333



With the broken link issue, I don't think I've run into it myself. Is the image linked from somewhere else or...?

I make the gifs in Photoshop CS5!

Back when the Adobe Creative suite still had ImageReady, I used to make gifs all the time, since it was pretty easy to figure out. I could not for the life of me figure out how to do it in Photoshop for the longest time, but this tutorial helped push me in the right direction.
It took me forever to figure out but once it clicked I had it down pat :3

(thanks!! <3)

It's not so much a broken link as that for some reason, the server/forum/whatever just has not let me edit the original post. Like, I click the edit button, make the edits in that post I want, and when I go to click "save" it takes me to that darn "cannot be found" page from the main site! What's weird and annoying is that it's only done this for that specific post; none others!

And of cooourse that's the post I want to edit the most!

Re: galleria de Calliope

got some more stuff done over the past week :3

both these first two pieces were done in less than an hour- I've noticed that over the summer, when I'm not in school and under the pressure to churn out quality work for a good grade, I tend to produce more pieces like this- quick and sloppy but spontaneous in a good way. (also that's what she said...?)


I love drawing ponchos


Aradia from Homestuck

Also I've been going berserk with garish color schemes lately too. I'm sorry if I've burned anyone's retinas....


here's something I sketched up today.
...my sketches are so dang sloppy it's a miracle I can get anything legible outta this stuff
