Revisiting the Past

These are just a few drawings I've done years ago in High School! Just thought it would be a good idea to add some diversity in my art.... You see! I CAN do more then just character design stuff! :)
Its a WHALE!

I like this one, because I gave the lion a black under coat... is that the right terminology? Under coat?

 This is a fun painting, I painted this during my junior year of high school. I actually won an award for this one at the Huntington Beach Art Museum. There really is no real focus on this painting, but thats what makes it fun!

This was one I did during my senior year. The Sirens in the Water. Look closely at this one and look at how the woman change from alluring to dangerous. :)

I'm actually painting a new painting right now, I'll be posting some pictures of it very very soon!

Meet Charlie

This is Charlie. My T-Rex cartoon character I'm currently working on for a possible children's book I'm coming up with. :) Let me know what you think! (Sorry the picture is a little light, just click on the picture and the larger view will look better)

The Secret (The Best Sadies Invite EVER!)

Here's some random fun! I made this comic for my little sister about two years ago so she could ask her boy out to the school dance. You should read it! I'm actually pretty happy with it, and she loved it!
Anyway, just found it randomly while looking through my computer. Have fun!

Strange Doodle

Here are a few works in progress that I just drew during class.

Random idea for a cartoon creature from my brain.
Thanks brain!
Just a work in progress :)

 A fat lizard snake... teh dah!

This one has some potential. I love the way I drew the head connecting with the neck. Also, I love how I drew the arms... nope I just like this whole drawing. It kinda reminds me of Kung Fu Panda.
just kidding.

Every week in my art class I'm learning more and creating more creatures. I'm really loving my class so much. I feel that much closer to my dream job as a Character Designer for an animation studio, or even a video game company!

The Animation Academy

In order to expand my skills, I've enrolled into a wonderful school, The Animation Academy in Burbank, CA. This school is absolutely wonderful! I've seen so much progress in my work, and my teacher is helping me so much. Here is just a taste of my work that was recently posted on the school blog.

More to come soon.

Welcome to my Portfolio

Hi there! My name is Alexa Terry Hanson, and I'm an artist with a dream. A dream to become a character designer, or concept artist for PIXAR, Disney, Dreamworks, or even Sony Animation Studios. I just want to do what I love to do in a way that I can live the rest of my life happily, and satisfied.
