Sketchbook of Mr. Kite

Here are a couple of the random sketches I've been doing in my sketchbook lately. Other than these I haven't really been doing much.

First Days of Spring

So I haven't really been blogging much, as you may have noticed... Figured I'd post some of my older work.

Before I started college I did a bit of painting, so I figured I'd put up some of my paintings!

I have quite a few so I am going to only post a few at a time. These are my earliest paintings

Daily Sketches

I've recently decided to do daily sketches in my sketchbook. If you want to see the craziness that runs from my head to my hand to my pencil, head on over to http://mr---kitesketches.tumblr.com/.

Here are the latest few.

Decided to start trying to draw in my sketchbook each day. Not anything specific, but just random sketches and doodles to experiment and, hopefully, improve my art. Here are some from the past couple days.

She Loves You

Had an idea for a Beatles drawing a couple days ago and finally got around to drawing it :)

What do you guys think?

More Louis Concept Pieces

I said I would put up more pictures of some concept stuff I did of the big computer controlling the ship that my robot, Louis, operates in.

C.A.I.C. (Central Artificial Intelligence Computer) is the giant computer controlling the ship Arm's Reach on the mission to explore a far-off planet. Arm's Reach passes through a weird magnetic field on it's course that creates several problems in C.A.I.C.s program, sending "him" and the ship out of control.

These were some of the first couple drawings. I have forgotten what some of my influences are but I know I wanted a design that could show emotion as well as move around in "his" room.

I used Paint Tool SAI to add color and clean up the design. I thought I was done, but I realized this design didn't quite fit what exactly I had in mind.

So I worked on a few more designs. I know I wanted something that: could show "emotion", could move through "his" space. A few optional features were: a glowing eye (possibly to help with emotion as well as show it's broken condition (turning red, flickering, etc.) and hanging wires (just cause I like how they look).

I started to think that a screen somewhere on the face could be a good way to have "expressions". This design was somewhat based off of GLaDOS from the Portal series. I'm still not completely sure about the idea of "him" having arms.

This one was somewhat influenced by Thomas Bangalter's (of Daft Punk) helmet. I do like this design, as the screen can show emotion, it is able to move through its space, it has a couple wires, and it looks partially based off of the same engineering as Louis.

I'm still working on concepts for CAIC hoping to get a perfect feel. Since those concepts I've also decided I want CAIC to look like he was built by the same company that built Louis (which he likely was) and be able to look friendly for before he malfunctions and be able, with the slightest change, to look psychotic for when he malfunctions.

Captain Tim

Meet Captain Tim. Yep. That's about it.

I apologize, I really should allow more time between my blogs or something. (this is a new thing for me, never had a blog. That I can remember anyway)

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!
I tried to keep myself from spamming up my blog with so many pictures at once, but I figured its a good time to put up some more.
Inbetween my Wreck-it Ralph drawings I've been trying to create some of my own characters and stories. One that particularly seems to stick out is one about a robot named Louis.
Basically his story is he is a sort of assistant to a giant computer controlling a ship sent off to explore a far off planet. I don't have a whole lot thought up for the story other than the giant computer malfunctions causing the ship to go out of control (leaving the fate of the ship and the mission in Louis's metallic hands). Here's a couple concept pics I've done. There are a couple more (mostly of the giant computer) but I am unable to get to them at this very moment.
This was the first drawing I did. I don't remember the motivation behind it other than just "What can I make out of thin air,"

These are a lot more recent and I kind of fancy this look a bit more (although it is probably because he has more on his arms than just poles...)  

I am considering purchasing a drawing tablet sometime so that I have cleaner and nicer looking concept pieces.
