Layout Portfolio

I really didn't have anything refined so I coloured all my in-class work sketches in one night.... Wish I coulda done more exploration with persective and stuff.

Need More Chocolate and Tea

I should not even be on here right now...
But I feel like I've spent too much of my life on this bone project right now. Anyway, end of semester is pretty intense.... Did I say not as crazy or stressful as I expected it to be? Well then, I lied right through my teeth. Haven't had the time to scan in my dailies either... been doing them, just not digitally.

Anyway we had this project for character design class where we had to pick and artist and research their background and what we could learn from their art so I chose Jeff Simpson who I really admire, more so now that I've creeped his "stupid teenager" journals on dA. We also had to design our own character based on our research... Here's how mine turned out:

What is anatomy...?? Hahaha...

Actually this was easier than I expected it to be even though it turned out nothing like Jeff's stuff. But his method (or what I could decipher from pictures) was really really realllllyyyyy fun. Really need to do more digital work over the winter break.

Painting class thumbnail hax

I still find it hilarious that this is acceptable...

Guess who as a human??

Anyway, enough procrastinating... Back to the grind. Gah.

Everyone is Wonderful

So these past few weeks have been awesome and busy. I've been listening and watching to a lot of inspiring stuff lately; so inspiring, in fact, that I have decided to take this person's advice and create something cool everyday. I have even started a blog for it!

Here's the lecture in case anyone is curious.

Speaking of inspiring things, I've been listening also to this awesome podcast called Guys with Pencils. Two recent grads from Sheridan animation do this podcast. They interview a whole bunch of people in the industry and tell some interesting stories from what it was like to be at Sheridan. Over all a great and informative podcast! Available at iTunes. Also without iTunes!

School's been busy lately. The deadlines coming up seem overwhelming but to be honest, it doesn't seem as crazy or stressful as I expected it to be. Maybe it's good time management?? In other news animating is growing on me..... which I guess is a good thing.

Here are some expressions from character design class. Not happy with them at all.....

... So for lack of current content from me have some old work from 2010...

Other than that, I've been working on a "school work" demo reel which should be done in 2 weeks. So please look forward to upcoming shits and giggles!

Obligatory pimpage of new blog and more awesome content:
Check it out! Thanks for reading!
