Animated GIFs

I had to do a tutorial in my Digital Illustration class on how to make an animated GIF in Photoshop. Here’s what I made with the “make frames from layers” function.

I made the horse galloping using the frames from Edweard Muybridge’s “The Horse in Motion.”

Ajax & Achilles

Here are the pages from my Inking class final. It’s a mini-comic I call “Ajax & Achilles,” featuring an as-yet-unintroduced character from “Muse.” (Spoilers. Sorry.) There was supposed to be dialogue, but I ran out of time for class purposes, and frankly, it reads just fine without. So that’s what you get! It’s been inked in Manga Studio 5.


Stargate ship project

A project for my Props, Environments, and Structures class last quarter. I had to design a vehicle so as to fit into the visual aesthetic of an existing franchise. I made a Goa’uld ship from the show “Stargate SG-1.” The real Goa’uld ships all have an Egyptian aesthetic, and have aspects of bugs (beetles/scarabs, really) and other Egyptian animals. I decided my ship would be a cargo-type ship of the crocodile-headed god Sobek. I think it ended up looking like a cross between a crocodile, a bug, and a duck.
