New Characters

I started these guys just as simple shapes, and man, they grew into something I really liked. I dont know if there will be a story revolving around them, but I do have some ideas. All images Copyright 2008 by Daniel Vasquez.

new stuff

some new stuff on my computer i had started working on. the first two are related, one came before the other, the first being a sort of layout/color comp, the latter being a more finalized vision. The last is an idea i had in a sletchbook that i decided to recreate in color

More Photoshop Phun

Drawn and colored in Photoshop. It's about existentialism or something.

Making a lovecraftian creature with photoshop took a few hours, first to find resources and about 2 hours to make the image. I used an actual octopus picture to make the tentacles underwater, a shark (obviously), a spider's head for the eyes, and an image of an octupus done in cgi. I found all of these using google, and all rights are reserved to the proper owners.

tentacle chick

Another project from Photoshop class, mastering some of the simpler things like layers, clonestamping, and just using the freaking paintbrush. I doubt i'm gonna learn any real new techniques in this class, but we'll see. Still got another half of a semester left.

So now in FIT i have to take a photoshop class with the biggest tool as the teacher. He gives us one lesson, and then tells us to play around with for 3 hours. Anyways here's some of the work:

Learning how to color in photoshop! How astute! I mean, who would have thought? Anyways, at least it helped me refresh my painting skills. As simple as they are, they get the job done for cartoony things.

The first coloring excercise, coloring a black and white drawing of a mouse. the thumbnail for some reason has strange colors

After I got bored with the project below, i started making this using the cut-out filter and then drawing in the rest. Whee! Still working on it

Oooh! Playing with colors, levels, and the curve tool! Oh, and a filter as well, for effect.
