Old Paintings

Going to go ahead and put some more old stuff up here, otherwise I'll forget and lose track of my old files again.

These are paintings that I did throughout my highschool years. They were done with acrylic paints, and are listed chronologically... as far as I can remember, at least:

The below painting was for a class. The subject matter is my own interpretation of Quetzalcoatl, an Aztec creation deity. It's hard to tell, but these paintings were over 20 square feet in surface area:
The final painting is different from the others as it was made with india ink and a little bit of watercolor:

I'm working on scanning some newer paintings at the moment. I finally have my own scanner, and I'm pretty happy about that!

Old Projects

I was organizing some of my folders and found a bunch of older school projects. Might as well throw everything I can on here!

This was a design for a class I took freshman year.

The phoenix above I drew with a marker and scanned, the rest I added on using my tablet.

Another random thing from freshman year.This one's from sophomore year. We were supposed to make a tattoo design in Adobe Illustrator. Mine was some kind of Aztec jaguar snake thing.

Another one from sophomore year. I had to illustrate a "Florida panther." It also had to be drawn in chalk pastel, which I am soooooo bad atttttt.


For illustration class semester we're supposed to keep a sketchbook, and do drawings based on a different theme every week. The first theme was to draw yourself in whatever style you wished, as long as you did not look at a mirror or photo while doing so.

Naturally, mine turned out pretty dang silly. That's just how I am:

A Sharpie Died for this Post

There's a bit of a story behind this post. It feels a little weird to say publicly on the internet, but I honestly think giving the background for these makes them a lot more interesting than they would be otherwise.

One day I was having a bad panic attack, and I decided to try and work through it by drawing as quickly as I could without thinking about what I was drawing at all until I felt back to normal. Here's what came out of that, in chronological order:

More Doodles Because That's How I Do

I'm just gonna put the rest of what I have laying around in my "doodles" folder on here. Why not!

So here we go.

First is a drawing of my two cats, Sputnik and El Cid. This is a pretty accurate representation of their daily interactions:

The rest of these are pretty random, and huuuuge and long:
