Self Portrait Assignment

So this was an assignment for my digital illustration class. It was to create a self-portrait with some sort of flair in Adobe Illustrator.
I just want to say, after working with Photoshop for the past 7 years, I'm not a fan of the program for stuff like this.

Dorothy, Redesigned

After some critiques from fellow classmates and my teacher, I made some changes to Dorothy. Here's the new one.

Gave her dress some folds, added more shadows and rim lighting in different places, gave her more realistic hair with strands, thicker eyebrows and larger pupils for a more childlike look, took the bow off her front (cuz according to the girls in my class, no such dress exists with a bow on the front :/ ) and put it on her ponytail.

This semester I'm taking a concept design course and our design focus is on the story The Wizard of Oz. I will say up front that we are designing the BOOK, not redesigning the movie, hence the blonde Dorothy with silver slippers and the Tin Woodsman sans the funnel cap.

Past Work

This is some of my work this past year

More Christmas Workflow

Here's the cover from "The Butterfly and the Ants."

I've still been working on concept art for that video game that I've mentioned. Here was one of the designs that had some spin-off ideas but won't be part of the actual game. All those little white things are pustules that pop and explode, and he spits other little flying guys out of his mouth.
