Man Boy Thing

So this took me like three days and it was really annoying and frustrating and BLAH. It is modeled after a real picture that my friend sent me years ago, so I have no clue who it is or where the picture is from. But yeah, with lots of help from very patient friends, I was able to do this. YAY! I'M DONE!

Yay! 2D logos! adobe illustrator, like 3 hours. longer than it should have.

3d Logos

This is my 3D logo collection, courtesy of adobe illustrator. It says "taylo" but I got sick of it, and you can kind of see where the effort stopped in the L, it got worse for the O and I didn't even do an R to complete it. Whatever. This took me like 3 days.

Monday, October 14, 2013


I did this in adobe illustrator. This was my first time doing anything with that program, so I made a flower and just copied and pasted and changed sized a bunch of times. Yay! It took me like 10 minutes

body builder magazine

This is a body building magazine cover using Raphael from my previous post. it took me around 2 hours to do, a lot of it was just playing around with strokes and colors and such. It was a lot of fun to do.

Arnold as Raphael

So this took me around 4 hours in photoshop. The original picture was Arnold Schwarzenegger and I warped him, and added bits and peices of other pictures and a background to make him look like Raphael. The twin sai, belt, sash, arm bands, mask, mask ribbon, shell, and background are all different pictures added to the Arnold one. I'm pretty proud of it.

magazine cover!

So this is another photoshop retouching thing. The first picture is the original, and the second is my retouched version. It took me quite a while, not sure how long. Hooray, I'm done!

Slow Jim

THIS IS MY FIRST EVER GIF. I AM SO EXCITED. Of course, I could not have done it without my friend Jacob. I was able to draw and photograph my man Jim here, but the whole GIF creation thing is new to me, so Jacob helped out a lot. This took me like two and a half hours to do. A really long time. Oh well, I am pleased.

Black Beauty

This Black Beauty took me no more than 45 minutes. The wings, horse, mane, tail, and fire background were all seperate pictures. It was difficult for me to do some of the things I wanted to do with photoshop, but it worked out.

Panda dog

This is a Red Panda head, puppy body, and lion tail. I went with the red panda coloring for it all, but it was really easy. The most frustrating part was getting the three parts to all look natural together, but I think photoshop did me good. This took like an hour to do.

Personal Xray

         So, I really like this one. It took me like one and a half hours to do on photoshop, mostly because I kept messing up. The girl is me, and the skeleton is a plastic one we have at my school that I took a picture of. The hook is a shark hook that I found on google, and then edited to fit my purpose. I am holding just a regular empty picture frame. This one was a lot of fun to do, a lot more envolved than most photoshop images I do.

This snowboarder picture was colorized in photoshop, though the original picture is not mine. It took me like 10 minutes, really simple, just playing with colors and such.

Daughter of the Mask

          This piece took me no more than 45 minutes, using just mechanical pencil, regular paper, and a tissue used for shading. I love the contrast it gives, as well as the dramatic effect.


This is my friend Sarah. It took me somewhere around 5 hours. I used my own photo as a reference, and just a pencil and paper.

Splatter Phant

     This is my Splatter Phant. Done on photoshop, took about 15 minutes. Both the elephant and the splatters were found on google, all I did was combine the two pictutres.

Pencil Lady

          This took me about half an hour, just using mechanical pencil. It is my first all pencil drawing without blurring the shading on anything.

Sharpie Breath

          This took me somewhere around two hours. It is on an 11x8.5 inch sheet done with just regular sharpie. Possibly one of my favorites I have ever done.

Playing Fairies

          So this little gem I have titled "Playing Fairies." It was done in photoshop, and the fairies were meant to look distinctly cartoon. I don't know who this girl is, I just got the picture from google. The same with the background, which is a separate picture. The fairies, however, were all done by me using sharpie and colored pencils.

Froggy Tounge

          Looks rather starry, doesn't it? Done in photoshop. Originally, it was supposed to look like an actual tounge, but I went kind of over board with the burn and dodge tools. I really like the effect though. Neither the mouth nor the frog are mine.
