The Adventure of Little Red

Class: Narrative Illustration
Goal: A fully rendered comic of an updated version of an old fairytale. I chose Little Red Riding Hood, using a Japanese spin. The fox is a Kitsune – a type of fox spirit known for being able to shape-shift and create will-o-wisps. It was also inspired by a Japanese version of rock-paper-scissors, where the fox beats the village leader (here represented by his daughter-little red), hunter beats the fox, and the village leader outranks the hunter.

Photoshop Experiments

Experiment 1: BlueBird

Class: Electronic Media
Goal: Today we finally got our pens to go with the tablet screens. In class we were experimenting with the different brushes in Photoshop CS6, creating our own brushes, and experimenting with pen pressure. I love these screens, it’s just like painting, without having to deal with mixing paint. Later we took our images into Cinema4D, but this is the image I did quickly in class while I was playing around.
