From left to right: Dave Lowery, some girl in my ward giving a talk, and a ceramic bust of an African woman.

I sketched Dave Lowery while he came to BYU last year to give a lecture about storyboard artists in the film industry. The girl in the middle I sketched last sunday in church as a way to keep awake during her talk. And the bust I just sketched from a photo I originally found for a lighting study.

Look at all the pretty colors!

Here's a digital painting I did to study the color, lighting, and texture of a mango with the intent to model, texture, and light using Maya and Renderman.

I picked a mango because I love the colors and subtle textures! My goal is to make this mango look 1/100th as good as the food in Ratatouille when I'm done modeling, texturing, and lighting it.
