an animation post?

zomg!!!! i think this is the first time i have ever posted animation up on here. After changing my AA story a million times. What you're about to see was done over the period of 1 and a half days with sleep and mario kart thrown in there too. I had some major technical difficulties with my coloring process this morning though so it's not looking as clean as it should sooo I'm gonna have to tackle this again at some point in time once I'm semi recovered from some fun loving back surgery tomorrow morning.

Digi Painting Quickie

This is a really quick painting I did tonight after seeing Bolt for the second time now.. if you haven't seen it yet then you should probably go give it a look see.

Anyways, now for the painting.

Cooking Blog!

yuuup so I've started up another blog that'll exhibit meals created by me. Every time I cook something new I always take a picture of it, so I figured may as well put them up on a blog for everybody else to see. I think I'll start to show the process as well if anybody sparks an interest toward this new blog of mine.

Anywho, my cooking blog can be found at

Final Layout for AA

I swear.. totally keeping this one.. I started it off trying to pull off the Samurai Jack bg style but I failed on epic proportions so I ended up just going with a style I'm used to.

ps. just looking at it a bit more and there's a fair bit that I want to change with regards to the lighting soooOOO lets just pretend this is my first version of my final AA layout.

Life Drawings

Just a couple drawings from today. Ever since last year when there seemed to be a massive increase of people going to life drawing, I basically stopped going. Although I have as of last week made it a habit to start going again on the weekend when things are calmer and more relaxed.

More Charictures. woo!

AA Char

Soooo changed my story (3rd time now) for an action analysis assignment that's due and the end of the semester. As I'm sure, any of you reading this at the moment and know me personally are probably not surprised that I've changed my story yet again. Not to worry though, still using the same layout from my previous story. Anywhooo this is a poor little squirrel who just wants a bit of fruit. (secondary character that I came up with tonight)

House on a hill

This is a little digital painting that I just did to play around with creating texture seeing how everything I've done thus far with regards to digital painting really doesn't have any.

New Layouts / Beats

These are a couple beats and a concept layout for group film this year.

Also, I've added the layout for my original action analysis, but due to a complete overhaul I now have something very different which is the one with a quick tonal (in photoshop) thrown on there. (more to come of this in the near future)

Contraty to belief

Getting jacked up on roids, throwing on spandex clothing, and drinking red bull will not give you super hero powers.. or wings for that matter.

what would...

the offspring of batman and pacman look like? well I came up with a conclusion of just that today. enjoy!

I did this digi painting just now from a sketch I created earlier today of which i'll include with this post.

3d madness

well I was working on this random super hero idea today while at work but some weird double layer BS happened when I extruded an area for the mask going over the eyes.. and well, i've gone too far to fix it, but i'm posting it anyway for the heck of it. (i'll make another attempt at something similar tomorrow and hopefully complete it without any mundane problems)

Muffin Anyone?

I uh.. kinda.. did a quick doodle of.... hitler.. a much happier version of him though. (maybe this is what he'd look like if he wasn't a mad man... orrr maybe this is what he'd look like if he ended up taking over the entire world.) who knows.

Stumpy Joker

I just did this mindless drawing while on the phone.

Chicken Fucker / Cafe Sketes / Hudson

Soo this is a montage of a post including such things as concept ideas for the well known super villain "chicken fucker" (and the chicken coop) followed by some cafe sketches, and then things will be finished off with an incredibly awesome dog named Hudson; of whom I had the pleasure of dog sitting for a couple weeks as or recent. (poor little guy was skunked while under my supervision, but luckly I got the scent out of his skin before handing him back to his owner)

Speedy Painting

Because I didn't feel like scanning any of my work I did a little speed painting in the meantime.
On a side note, I changed my blog layout and as a result I've lost links to people on the right hand side. On top of that, there's a tonne of people that I need to add to my blog but I'm never in the mood to do so; but one of these days I'll get around to it. ... yup

My Brain

Oldie Layouts

I stumbled across a couple layouts today from last semester, one of which, was turned into a digital painting.

Coral Reef

I decided to say the hell with work today and just did my own thing. That thing being some studies on coral reef for something i'm working on at the moment. Oh and by the way, these studies were done with the aid of alias sketchbook pro. It's all I use now when it comes to sketching since it feels so natural... almost.. too natural. So if you've never used this program before, I highly suggest you try it out.

Look out Superman

Look out buddy, there's a new guy in town.
I'm going to attempt a b/g for him tonight.. hopefully i don't screw it up as per usual with all my digital paintings. but we'll see..

Motherload of a post

be prepared. there's a fair bit to look at in this post.. or skim through. your choice.
on a side note, it feels great to not worry about handing in assignments for a few months. anywho, on with pictures to look at instead of shitty ole' text.

final character design assignment of year #2. This is probably my favorite character designed by me, although his lack of neck was a bit annoying to work with.

i've just recently starting mucking around with sculpey so this is a face in the makings that still has pleanty to be done with it. ( i have used clay when I was high school.. but that high school, and the art program was shit, therefore it doesn't count)

cute women.. need i say more?

cafe sketches along with what seems to be layout concepts from this semester..

I have some maya to post on here as well but that'll have to wait because I'm not in the mood to switch my OS from Leopard to Windows at the moment.
