Work was a bit slow today, so i decided to paint up Liea in photoshop. Took me roughly 6 hours to paint...Yikes!!! i defenetly have to find a faster methoed, but it's also to my timidness when painting. I'm sure i'll get faster the more comfortable i get. I'm not 100% happy with the way i coloured her hair but it's much better then my past attempts.
Wow!!!! long time no post, not sure if anyone still stops by, but here goes anyway.
This weeks topic for Art Jumble was Princess Liea. I decided to do a cartoony version, not going for likeness, but just to capture the character. Not sure why i made her grumpy looking, it's probably because half the movies she's yelling at Han Solo. Anyways hope you all enjoy!!!
Here is page 2 of the storey i'm doing, i thought i'd share this page just so everyone had a chance to see what my main characters look like. After this i'll probably post one more page, and then the rest will have to be seen in Cake Vol.2
Hey gang, sorry for the lack of posts for the past few months. I have been asked to be apart of an Anthology called Cake, i have a link to it in my links section. Basically i've been working on my storey and trying to get solid designs. After a mishap to my place the project kind of got put on hold, but lately things have been calming down and i'm hoping i can crank out quality work and make the deadline. Anyways my Project is called "Dream Catchers" . If you want to find out more about the storey your gonna have to wait till the book comes out..hehe
Here is a quick hellboy sketch that a did one night. My wife brought out our Prisma colour markers (that i haven't used and years) and they where just calling me to use them. So here is the final result, don't know why i chose hellboy but it was fun to get down and dirty with raw materials again, instead of relying on the perfection of computer's undo. Hopefully there will be more sketches like this in the future, i had so much fun and for any of you out there who use the computer, i suggest you bust out your old makers, pencils, crayons...etc and go nuts on a piece of paper.
Do to the lack of drawing lately, i have decided to throw up some drawings from my old blog, for those of you who didn't get a chance to see my old stuff. I know it's cheap, but ti's been a very busy couple months and it doesn't look like it's going to slow down till august...sigh. Anyways hope you all enjoy, and i promise to get some new drawings up next week.
Total Drama Island has been picked up by cartoon network!
I was an animation supervisor on TDI. It was my first time supervising on a show and i learned alot from the experience. Overall it was a fun show to work on, but as usual around the end of the season deadlines got tighter and nights got longer but we all made it through it. We're gearing up for Season 2 now!! so hopefully things will run alot smoother this time around.
The animation was done over at Elliott Animation Studios, located in Toronto, Canada.
Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard on the show!
This weeks topic for Artjumble was Japanese Monsters. So i did a childrens book version of Godzilla. I started off by roughing the character in flash. I cleaned and coloured him and then got rid of all the lines, except for the ones that over lapping ones. The Bg, colouring and texturing where done in photoshop.
Ok so here is my very first drawing for my new blog!!!! This weeks topic for ArtJumble was "Luck". So i decided to do bad luck with the Black Cat. She's an awsome looking character and i tried doing a tooned up version of her. I had fun with this illustration and it was my first time inking a finished piece in photoshop. I put a texture on the drawing at the end to hide my poor line quality..hehe.
Ok so this ones for you Greg..hehe. Here is black cat with texture just on the back drop. I think i was getting a rough line because of the brush i was using. If anyone has any settings for a good inking brush in photoshop your knowledge would be much appreciated.
Hey everyone, I decided to open up a new blog because i couldn't get my admin rights for my previous blog. I wanted to update links and stuff like that but just couldn't. Unlike the other site this will be strictly my site, and my wife shannon will have her own blog too. So sit back relax and enjoy the illustrations to come.
