This is a still life painting of Sack Boy from Little Big Planet done in oil. My roommate bought the collectors edition and it came with a plush Sack Boy so I decided to do a painting of it. I really love the creativity of these games both game play way and artistic style. It would be real fun to buy the other plush Sack Boys and Girls and do a larger still life painting of them all. I just wish they had a plush with the shark outfit, I loved wearing the shark outfit when I played.

I finished this about a week ago, but finally baked it today completing the process. I may go back and do the bones of the fingers someday but I got to say it was a lot of fun sculpting this and I learned a lot. It is far from 100 percent accurate but it was still a worth while process. The cool part now is that since I baked it, I can hold it in my hand and feel the forms, quite interesting. I am now working on a leg sculpture for class.

I took a long figure drawing class last term taught by Erik Gist at Watts Atelier. This was my first long figure drawing class in probably 4 years and it was a lot of fun. I have been doing so much pencil work recently for the designs I do for Remetee so I really wanted to take a long figure class to see what I could get out of it. I am really proud of the male drawing, I spent an extra 8 hours or more at home fixing it up after the semester ended. I like the female one as well but I had a lot of issues with it, mainly the drapery covering her body slowed me down. I may go back and touch it up as well if I find the time or desire. I got a lot out of the class, my Game of Thrones drawings would not have come out nice if it wasn't for this class.
