Shoes - Digital

Done in Adobe Illustrator.

My message for this piece was that these shoes are out-doorsy shoes.
I ventured all over Italy in these shoes.
They are comfortable enough for hiking and travel!
(Also the brand is 'Champion')

Shoes Painting - Finished

Finished product. 
My overall message was that shoes shouldn't be a gendered item.
(Maybe with the exception of dress shoes. But hey, if a grown man wants to wear red pumps, who's to stop him?)
The pink/red on top represent "female/feminine" colors, and the blues on the bottom represent the "male/masculine" colors. The purple surrounding the shoe is supposed to be a mix of the two colors, a gender ambiguous/all including color. 
I wanted to show that this shoe isn't just for boys or just for girls
No matter your gender identity, you should be able to wear whatever shoe you want.
(Also those are XXs with the pink and XYs with the blue. Get it?)

Done with ink and acrylic paint on chipboard.

Shoes for Web

Mr. Wertz fixed the crinkling of the paper using Illustrator.
More to come with editing the color of the shoes & typography.

Progress on Shoes Painting

It's a little blurry because wow iPhones suck but yeah, changed it up a bit by adding purple around the shoe itself and lightening it up.
Still a WIP.

Humble Abode - Side view

Done in Adobe Illustrator.
This is technically a front view I guess but still, the front is a side.
With this view, you're looking into the house. 

Humble Abode - Aerial View

Done in Adobe Illustrator. 

The oval in the roof is the oculus, and the little rectangle in it is the impluvium, the decorative pool that collects water. 
The roof to the front of the house is blue. The back of the house is open, no roof, because it's a garden, as you can see with the trees I have in the green area. 
The red in the front of the slanted roof made with shingles. This is the same for the sides of the back. Under those parts of the roof are indeed bedrooms and other rooms to the house that should not be exposed like the garden.

Humble Abode

I wanted my house to resemble an ancient Roman home.
I think their houses were beautiful, and I find it very interesting that they had a garden in the middle of their house. You can see on the lower picture the garden is labeled, and in the top picture, number 2 represents the garden. 
I would plant some trees in that garden and build my house around the trees, as seen in my floor plan here (aerial view):
The picture (sideview) of my house was showing underneath this one, so I scanned it again and it cast some shadows on the bottom one here, but it's okay. 

Those little puff ball thing in the middle of that square would be my trees. 
For some context, that circle with a rectangle in it looks like a Do Not Enter sign, but the circle itself is called an oculus, and the rectangle in the middle of it is the impluvium. 
The oculus is a circular opening in the roof where rainwater can collect in the impluvium below it, which is in the ground of the atrium of one's house. 
It's fancy Roman decoration, really.

Here is the side view of my house.
I chose to be viewing into my house. 
You can see the impluvium, and the structure is upheld by columns.
This is the front part of my house, so you can't see into the garden/back of the house.
Roman houses didn't have doors. They just pulled down this giant wooden wall to keep people out at night, and then kept it open during the day.

Typography is really hard.
I wanted to make "methoxyflurane" look wispy and light and free like the wind, but also powerful at the same time.

Movie Posters - Final

Here are my movie posters, finished with adjustments, edits, and text added.
The title of my movie is Intikam, the Turkish word for "revenge."
