Princesses and Meeting Notes

Darin Southam's Headshots

I took headshots of my brother Darin (www.darinsoutham.com) last Saturday. We had fun. We took these shots at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. There are lots of nicely textured backgrounds there so that was great.

Headshots of Molly Jackson

Hey friends,

I took some photos of one of my best friends Molly Jackson (jacksonparkcity.blogspot.com) a week ago. We had such a great time! I don't mean to brag or anything but thanks to Molly's new headshots by me, she booked the role of Peter in Peter Pan at Egyptian Theater in Park City. Sigh...

Ok fine. I guess it helped that she's a fantastic actress, dancer and singer! ;) Go Molly!! It was such a blast to get together with her!

Lego Star Wars

Yes this is Princess Leia. All the little kids in my neighborhood can't get enough of Lego Star Wars. So I thought it would be a good addition to the Avalanche Blog about Star Wars characters....not to mention the fact that its a video game. :)

In March of this year, Spencer and I traveled to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Lesotho, Mozambique, and Swaziland. These photos were taken using a Canon Rebel 30D with an 18-70 mm lens. We saw some gorgeous sites...check them out! All images © Copyright Emily Tyndall 2007 --For usage rights and permissions email: emily@emilys-imagination.com.


We also visited some villages and enjoyed meeting the cute kids and families. All images © Copyright Emily Tyndall 2007 --For usage rights and permissions email: emily@emilys-imagination.com.


Africa, March 2007--Spencer and I took these pictures at Kruger National Park, Chobe National Park and Schlushluwe National Park using a Canon Rebel 30D with a 70mm-300mm lens. We bought that lens especially for this trip and we were SO glad we had it. I have to say, we got some awesome pics! Some of these pictures were taken by me and some by Spenc. All editing was done by me. All images © Copyright Emily Tyndall 2007 --For usage rights and permissions email: emily@emilys-imagination.com.

Meet the Robinsons

Here are some of my concept paintings for the video game, Meet the Robinsons which came out in March.

Above is an ant soldier. Below is Lizzy (the girl with the ant farm) when she grows up. The first three are Lizzy when the future is good. The second two are Lizzy when things go wrong and she turns evil. The next is one of her guards--a giant red ant! The last image is a security camera bot.

Traveling and Headshots

I am in Kathmandu, Nepal right now. Crazy huh? I'll tell you what's crazy--the driving here! :) I'm just glad it wasn't ME behind the wheel because I don't think I'd be alive right now to tell the tale. We drove down a street today that is only wide enough for one car and yet it had cars going both directions. Jammed between all the cars were bicyclists, rick-shaws, motor-bikes, pedestrians, oh and cows. I was afraid for my life...

Earlier this year I was asked to take some headshots/modeling shots for a friend of a friend named Julie. This job was a lot of fun. We used make-up artist, Danielle from Deuce Makeup Artistry . We shot at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. I was feeling really good about my skills throughout the shoot but honestly, Julie was a natural! I kept saying, "yeah, do that...[snap]....that looks great [snap]....yeah, don't move [snap, snap]." and thinking to myself, "man, I'm good!" Hehe. Here are some of the shots. © Copyright Emily Tyndall 2007.

Did you miss me? Well, I'm here again. Hallelujah.

I bought an easel for myself for Christmas. It is beautiful. I even have a half-finished painting sitting on it (that I started a year ago pre-easel). Getting the paints out and actually painting on it is another story. No, actually I did get the paints out on Monday. They are sitting on the table next to the easel. It all looks very nice.

Maybe I should take a picture of it and post it...or maybe I should just finish the painting and post a picture of that! Seriously that is my goal! If I can finish it in 6 days, I would be a happy camper. That is now my goal. I'll explain why later.

In the meantime, I recorded a CD with Chris Wright (from Avalanche) and here is the CD cover I designed. The songs are classical and religious pieces. I've also been working on songs with my guitar (see previous post) but it turns out that takes a lot longer than I expected.

So the CD and cover artwork comes from the mosaic floor of an ancient (about 100 A.D.) Christian temple I visited in Israel, specifically a town called Beit-Lehi [translated: the Family of Lehi]. The name of the city comes from an ancient prophet named Lehi who used to live there (according to the local bedouins). The back of the CD has some classical Greek writing (from the same mosaic floors) which translated says, "Azizos and Kaikypikos dedicated this temple" (or something like that).

The songs on the CD are: Memory, Beatitude, The Lord's Prayer, Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again, God Help the Outcasts, and I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked.

CD Design



Notice that the mosaic on the front is a boat with fish and a couple people on board. They are going on a journey, so I thought this image would be perfect for my CD, since I decided to call it Journey.

Guitar and LDS Living


Right now I'm thinking more about music because I just bought a 1977 vintage Guild guitar (acoustic) that is a deep crimson red. Christmas present to me.

Last week, on the other hand, I was consumed by art. This is a freelance job I did for LDS Living magazine. It was a story about holiday budgeting. Enjoy.

Laser Eyes

Ok...I discovered something yesterday. If anyone comments, it won't show up until I re-publish my blog (because I'm hosting this blog on my actual web-site www.emilys-imagination.com). So, each time I log in to blogger.com and re-publish it, the new comments show up.

For a couple weeks I thought people really hated that last post. There were zero comments. Sad how my emotional well-being is based on how many "pats on the back" I get. :) hehe. I'm ok again now that I have a few pats on the back. Thanks for the comments guys!

Ok. On to more important details...like my super-hero status due to my new laser eyes (...see last post and comments) I am going to hold off on posting my now perfect art...I don't want to blow you all away. So I will keep posting old art...I'll ease you into the good stuff. That way it won't be too jarring on your senses.

You're welcome.

Everyone's getting me so pumped up about Tak art...oh yeah baby! Here's another tribute to Tak from me: this is Lok in his trusty Lobster suit. I don't often get to paint concept at work...but when I do get the opportunity, I enjoy it.
Instead I mostly paint textures for world population objects...I'm sorry to say that I will probably not post many of those. Don't get me wrong, I am proud of them.... :)
I'm sure I would improve quicker if I painted more full compositions.
On another note, I got laser eye surgery last week...so now that I have perfect vision I will probably also create perfect art. Yesssss!

Concept Woes

Another sketch here. Life is good.
I feel like I should write more because there is so much room here.
hmm...I will write a poem:

Poor Concept Art
by Emily Tyndall
dedicated to the sad clown girl to your right...I hope she appreciates this!

Poor, poor concept art,
drawn and tossed into a pile.
Your life was short. Nobody cared.
Your life was not worth while.

But lo, o'er yonder hill did shine
a glimmering blogger's light.
For she did post and glorify
your life on her website.

Hello again. Due to popular request...I am posting another image. Ok, fine...only two people requested.

This is some concept for Tak 3...an Amazon woman...and baby (hehe...nobody asked for a baby—but I liked the idea. I think there is going to be some kind of trend here—where I keep doing what I want instead of “just” what is asked for.... hmmm.... maybe that is why my concept doesn’t often get used...)

Well—that’s ok. As Virginia would say, “At least you had fun, right?" Yes, Virginia, I had fun! Wahooooo!*

Y Emily
*Wahoo is in reference to the great movie, IQ with Meg Ryan.

Hello world.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me here. For your kindness I will reward you with a bit of visual sweetness...

This is a logo I created for a modest clothing company. I was quite proud of it. However, it wasn't what they were looking for. They ended up going with something else I designed.

I still like this one. :)
