Submarine Interiors!

Here's the initial layout sketch of the inside of the submarine:

I'm trying color out!  I'm thinking that since the character is searching for her "perfect home" where she fits in she'll carry certain things from home to home.  For example, she loves baking and her bedroom is her safe haven which she populates with pictures of her ideal home, thus they have similar colorings [or will have similar colorings].  Here's my progress so far:

Please let me know about the colors and such!  [If they're working, etc]

Tried to change the saturation and such/ lighten some and darken others.  Please let me know what you think is working and what still needs some attention!

Kids' Bedroom: Reworked!

I've gotten around to coloring one of the sketches I grayscaled for my thesis exhibition!  You'll recognize it from a previous post awhile ago.

Honda sketch

I had to get my car serviced because the "engine malfunction" light kept going on and so I drove for the first time on a FREEWAY.  I think I also drove on an eight lane freeway.  Let me break it down- I'm from Hawaii.  The largest highway we have is a four lanes.  No freeways.  Anyways, so I drove on the freeway with only my iPhone gps...   That was quite the adventure.  Here's what I drew while waiting in the Honda lounge:

Currently finished doing the linework in Photoshop!!  Onto coloring it!

Business Logo: Cupcake Style!

Made a new business logo image!  And of course, it's a.... CUPCAKE!

Research Drawing: Bedroom

I started looking up reference photos for a bedroom when I realized that d'oh!  I have a bedroom in my apartment!  So today was spent drawing my bedroom~

Going to trace over it in Photoshop to clean it up a little.  My next plan of action: draw the bathroom!!

Back again with the finished piece!  Decided to try a new style thanks to my awesome girlfriend (please check out Jean's blog if you have time as well)!  Let me know what you think!

More Drawings!

I'm trying to do more "correct" perspective drawings.  This one's of a 50's diner!  I recently had the privilege of going to a Bob's Big Boy's!!!  The interior was so fun looking and reminded me of "The Jetsons".  So inspiring...  Can't wait to go back and draw it!

Some chair studies for the diner:

A trailer sketch I worked on last night as a potential "home" for my character.  It has rocket thrusters on the back!!

Life Drawing

Went to downtown Burbank to watch the Avengers again and to visit IKEA.  Also drew a bit~

I really liked this "Mongolian Grill" place- it just had the coolest futuristic look to it!  So I tried to capture that.  The below image was the table next to me.  It was so sad and lonely.
