Hey everyone, I realize it's been a while since I updated and I finally decided that I'm going to permanently move to my Tumblr account, since I don't really update this one ever. Thank you all for following my work and I hope you will continue to do so for my new blog, http://rachelthompsonart.tumblr.com/!

Projects from my 1st semester of Visual Development. Again, a lot of these I'm not completely happy with, and hope to revisit them sometime
these 3 characters were our first project. We were tasked with creating a hero, support, and villain; one of which had to be robotic in some way, one female, and one male.
these were three vehicle designs based on the idea of kids fighting a neighborhood battle
creature design, a mix between a penguin and a ladybug
Prop design, had to design a prop that could dive underwater as well as repel radiation
Fugu & Nori were two original characters created for various projects throughout the semester. Nori, a sushi-loving submarine pilot, actually came first; then we had to revisit a past character from our first project. So I took "Sam", and turned him into Fugu, a boy with the unique ability to talk to fish.
This actually the second part to our first project. after doing the roughs of our 3 characters (mine were Yoon, Sam, and Dr. Shin from above) we had to switch characters and stories with a classmate and make it our own based on their idea. The 3 characters above are part of my classmates story about a boy with robot legs who wants to impress the fastest girl in school by joining the track team.

It is illogical how in love I am with Spock. I haven't geeked out about a character this much since Severus Snape.
I am now a new fan of JJ Abrams Star Trek movies after seeing the second one in theaters and then going home to watch the first for the first time this weekend. I feel like I'm cheating on Star Wars, but seriously these movies are soooo good. You'd have to be out of your Vulcan mind to not enjoy them, whether or not you were a die-hard Trekkie to begin with ( I myself never really got into the original series, I've always remained faithful to the Force... until now ). Can't wait for another, because these movies were so successful and amazing there's just no way they wouldn't think to make a third. I'm also excited to see how Abrams handles the new Star Wars movie Disney is going to make. Fascinating.
And just because I don't think I've thrown enough Star Trek puns and Spock references at you, I'll end it on one more:
Live long and Prosper!
