Charles Eubanks - Furniture

I just love the design sensibility in Disney films.  You can tell they think through all their artistic choices carefully, adhering to well-defined shape language and color palettes.

This chair is from The Sword in the Stone, from the scene where The Wart and Merlin first meet.  I reproduced it as faithfully as I was able, paying close attention to the design nuances.  I like how the back mirrors the shape of a castle tower, and also hints at the direction from which Wart will make his sudden entrance.

In other news... I can't draw a straight line worth a darn.  So this exercise was really good for me!

Topic for 3/12 - 3/17

Heya, folks!  Is it just me, or did that last topic put you in the mood for cake?  Great Portal drawings, everyone!  I think Aperture has some great new R&D ideas to run with.

Let's try something a little more down-to-earth for next week's topic...


Yes, furniture!  Boring, you say?  Then try some visual research for inspiration!  Look at historical furniture, or film, or comics, or even just the room around you!  This can be a fun challenge, taking something ordinary and making it look artistic.  And as always... have fun!

I looked up 3D drawing, and it looked really complicated. Something about taking two photos about four inches apart, then matching them up after changing the image modes in Photoshop. Also, you would need a pair of 3D glasses to appreciate it. So, this is about as 3D as I could get. And...shameless toilet humor, at that. :P

Though my wife made an excellent point: "What if the hot air balloon drifts a little?"

Oh well.

Hi. First time drawer here and I don't have Photoshop or anything fancy to edit out unwanted things, so bear with me. It's just me and my best pal called "mechanical pencil."

I heard about this game, but never played it before, hence I saw bunch of images of Chell from Google and drew an image coming out from portal weary and tired.

My colors didn't scan very well here, but c'est la cake.

I just have to pass this on to you guys, though. I've been working on more dynamic poses and I LOVE practicing with models from this gallery I found: http://senshistock.deviantart.com/gallery/ I used one of her poses for Chell here.

You'll have to sign into deviantart to see them (and be over 18), considering it is about a million pictures of men and women in their briefs. For art!
