Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! 
Here, have a repeating wallpaper of assorted muscle-man-cats, in different hair styles holding cat nip.
A little gift from me to you! May we all survive the end of the world! ; D

Finished Action Analysis: "Theft"

The finished action analysis, and an early colour key of the second scene. Making this was a huge learning experience! The animation was done in toonboom harmony and coloured with a lasso tool in photoshop (not the ideal set up, but I wanted to experiment with sharp edges).
Happy Holidays! 

Vacation in 3 days!

BUT, I'M SO NOT READY!!!  here's a quick 1 hour paint, and yes I know Hollywood isn't by the beach -silly! (but I wish it was! makes for a nicer image ahah)

Eye to Eye short experimental animation

I originally had some bigger plans for this short, but I don't have time to execute it, so for now the short is just a teaser of what's to come! Here are some of the still frames from it, they were originally some other scenes that I was going to animate... and then didn't, due to immense self-doubt.

Here are some stills from the short film made one night in 6 hours for you online peeps. It's more like a reflection on my stress than an actual story. This will be screened at the 24 hour film screenings held on Friday after the movie screening! Anyone else with 24 hour films, hand em in to Charlie Richards! (his email is on the posters in the halls)

Bathing Girl, posable sculpture!

Had some free time this week, so instead of fast tracking the crazy amount of stuff due next week, I made this to keep my nerves in check haha. I call her, "bathing chick." Sorry if this isn't completely SFW, but hay this is an art blog, and nudity is A-OKAY for art-stuff right? haha... I'm so lame. She has no butt because I ran out of clay, but also because I like exploring the disappearance and reappearance of objects in space!

If she was an action figure, would you buy her? : D PLUS, she is posable, from waist down!

Life of Pi movie fanart

There is too much beauty in the universe. I really want to graduate and be able to show how beautiful the world is through film, animation and art. Life of Pi was incredible, you should all go watch it while it's out in theaters. I cried so much during the movie. The compositions were just amazing, and the story was very captivating. I couldn't decide which drawing I liked best, so here's 2 different colour combos + the character sketch.

Caricatures for Sheridan College Open House 2012

Lifedrawing in 3rd year really opened up a new perspective with caricature drawings for me. Playing around in some colour chalk pastel instead of the regular charcoal for these babiesss. Below are my propagandaposters/advertisements. y-you like? : )

Off season, 3rd year film character sketch

Hurray for being sick and missing school, and getting next to no work done this week!
Here's a coloured sketch of the character in the group film I'm working on!
I really need to heal up fast, missing so much...

Abandoned Adventure Time Episode: Season Never!, Episode Unfinished!

So back in 2nd year, a couple friends and I made up our own episode of Adventure time, it went along the lines of "WHAT IF: Finn and Jake found a temple/place that connected parallel universes and they went on an adventure with Fionna and Cake!"

We abandoned our project due to our workload, but as I was cleaning my hard-drive today, I found these paintings I made. ahha These are pretty fun to look at, oh and the green girl with the crown is our "reality princess" who controls the universe... silly eh?

Please don't sue us... 
This was all made as fanart and for non-profit... 
well in fact it was never finished ahha!

EVENT: Sheridan Caricatures at Toronto College Fair

A couple weeks ago I was present at the Toronto College Fair drawing caricatures for the Sheridan booth! This was one particular one that I loved! The woman had such an interesting outfit for the cold October day. She inspired me to draw her picture in a different approach. So it looks more like a little fashion sketch instead of the Charcoal Portrait style Caricatures I usually do at these events.


Couldn't resist drawing the orange tarp and wooden poles ahha such classic cliche concept art....

I thought I could use both for my portfolio this coming year, but I've still got a long way to go.

LDs week 5-7

Some life drawings that were handed in recently. Trying to simplify structure in my drawings, and exploring a little bit of contour work (like in the costumed one). Some 5 minute, 1 minute and 10 minute drawings done in compressed charcoal. I think I have a bad habit of breaking people's backs ahha, evident in that torso study = . =
