Tangled

 I loved Tangled. I hope the new animation developments they made while making that movie will allow me to have more opportunities in the animation workforce. =)

Super Heroes

 A gift for a friend. Done in Photoshop CS3 with an Intuos3 Wacom Tablet.

Some Illustrations

Some scans out of my sketchbook.
  This drawing is of "Star" from the first season of the show, "The Tester". I know most people didn't like her, but I thought she had a good attitude. So there.

Character Design

 Here are some character designs I worked on so far this semester. It's hard to do, but I'm having so much fun here.

 Camp kids. They are underwater kids, the young ones are 8 and the older one is 13. She's trying to teach them how to make bubbles.

Tara's drawing Jam





Done for Tara's Drawing Jam for class.

Scans from my Sketchbook

These are all scans from my Storyboard Class sketchbook. (Don't look at these til Oct.20th, Tara!)

They're all done with Touch brand markers. They were first sketched with col-erase pencil (blue or purple) and in some cases outlined with Faber-Castell fine markers. I used a bit of crayola marker and some other markers in some of them (like Pro-marker and Prismacolor)....

I feel like I'm getting a better hang of markers! These aren't in any order in particular. They were all done in the past couple of weeks except for the Tom Green one. 
For most of them I used reference photos.






 
^^This is the Tom Green one, aka the oldest one in this post.^^

POST 100

Well, so this is my 100th post. (EDIT JAN. 12, 2012 - This is no longer my 100th post due to some post deleting for cleaning purposes!)    I figured since I just began animation school, that I would post all the things I've done before I started classes. These pieces were mostly done in Newfoundland. A lot were done during the 24 Hour Art Marathon in St. John's. I taught a workshop while I was there about artmaking and idea application. It went pretty well and I think people had fun. Enjoy!
 
This was made during Benjamin Allain's artist workshop. We had to draw on pre-made coffee spills. We drew what we saw in the spill. I saw an elk thing and some skulls.

This is a concept for an acrylic painting. I don't know if I'll ever get time to paint it, but I enjoy the watercolour sketches I did for it.

This final image was done because I was listening to the song, "Here in My Room" by Incubus.

HAPPY 100th!

Now hopefully you'll see some serious improvement. Onward to Animation Classes!

The Legend of Korra

I leave for a mini-trip to Miramichi tomorrow. I'm going to bring up some of my stuff (bed, dishes) to my new apartment! Yay!

I don't know if you've all heard about the sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender TV Series--- The Legend of Korra. I AM SO EXCITED.

Here is a wee fanart of her doing some water bending. I scanned a sketch and did the cleanup/colouring in Flash. It turned out pretty good for the amount of practice I have with the program. Took a long time... But I'm happy with it! I can't wait to see what my skills will be like once I graduate school! EE!

Anyway... Enjoy!

Painting in PS

I'm trying to improve my painting skills... So I thought I'd start off with something fairly easy- Cartoon face. I think I'm learning. =D I LOVE learning.
