All the Rage





Some sketchbook drawings. Getting to the end of this one soon, I'm literally thinking of posting every single page just to see what I'd consider worth keeping. And get a better opinion on my own work.

One drawing here is an Ivy inspired Bruce Timm sketch for our artist profile we do in character design, originally I drew her nude to honor his pin up style,but our teacher is pretty against that kind of stuff in first year.

Also, that's my friends picachu dying, because she failed as a trainer. I was challenged to draw it really, I didn't have any real reason to. Not that one needs a reason to draw ;).

See yeah next time around.

Bam! Pow! Splat!

First animation assignment at Sheridan I'm sort of happy with. Hope the ball keeps rolling and I keep getting better. Let me know your thoughts!

The Inmates are Loose















































































Here is a step by step *(2 hours already in from first image), one image per hour, recording of my 5th animation layout assignment (master copy of a real layout). I chose this from the Batman: The Animated Series. This series summed up my career decision pretty quick as a kid. I was either going to become Batman, or draw Batman. So far, I'm not sporting any tights or armour, but I have been taking a stab at that drawing thing for awhile now. That brings us here, to the "painting" portion of animation. I will say it, I suck at painting. It is not a strong suit,point, or even skill I currently have up my sleeve. I have to say though, at least with this painting, it seems I'm getting better, or at least getting an idea of where to start.
























Here are the images in sequence, from blocking in to finish. Let me know your thoughts, feedback, etc. I'd like to know what I should work on and what (if any) looks right.
