Grand Journey 2015

This past week I went to Vegas, The Grand Canyon, and Zion National Park with JasmineMimi, Lancing Darlene, and Anna! It was such a wonderful week and made me learn how to organize a trip aka get a personal Jasmine :-), that Air B&B is amazing and wonderful, how much food I eat, to bring an external iPhone charger to charge in the wild, to bring a couple of pairs of pants--not just shorts, not to pack a pillow, how beautiful storms are in Utah, and how to survive in one van with five other girls for a week. 

Look for the #GrandJourney2015 on Instagram to see our posts! Also, my new business e-mail is daniellehcaseart@gmail.com!

Here are some of my sketches, in no particular order. I'll be refining and making more for the gallery we'll be having for our Grand Canyon trip in the fall! 
















Playlist: sounds from nature, and Wild Child! I did a quick cover of one of their songs recently :-)

Tiny Retired Incognito Monsters!

Class zine! My monster is Mrs. Genevieve Stauffer, and she is a sea monster who paints cups as a hobby in her retirement (mostly of scenes from her past).

Here are my roughs:



And here's my final!:

Chartreuse Parr

Last semester, I designed a character who would fit in the world of The Incredibles. My character was Mr. Incredible's niece, Chartreuse Parr, and she has the ability to attack things with vocal sound waves because she is a very talkative girl. This semester, I modeled her in Maya and in ZBrush!
Here's her model sheet, which was updated slightly this semester:
This is Chartreuse painted into a frame from The Incredibles. Her belt and some coloring got updated in the model:
Here are her basic wireframes:
 And here's the final model!:
And a turnaround!:

Knit Picking

At Family Night at church, I knit a mug warmer for my roommate! Now I've got a whole skein of wool and a need to knit, just in time for warm weather...

Crew of You

I'll update this as the project moves forward, but here is some of what's been done for the Crew of You project!  We came up with characters (mine takes place in the McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica) first. I drew mine on black paper with Prismacolor:
Then we designed sets, which we built and lit in class! My set is of a dorm room that Vlaypo and Fimbul stay in (much to Vlaypo's dismay):
 
Here's the line drawing:
We then did color comps. Even though my photos were very blue and cold, I liked the feeling of the red color comp in the lower left:
And it became this!:
