drawings from life -no clothes at all.

I didn't do as much nude lifedrawing this semester, I kind of miss it. there's something really forceful about it, like there's absolutely nothing between you and the pose. you have nothing to hide.

I think I regressed a bit in terms of anatomy, but decided I wanted to focus on just the shape and the push and pull of the body, and the movement. 

stoked to do more lifedrawing next term, but it'll be weird not having a lifedrawing class! (we only have it first semester of fourth year)

December already?

I've been puttering away on my thesis film, and it's going pretty good. 
I started production (eg animation and jazz) last week, so hopefully, come april (or a little earlier!)
my film'll be done. 

I don't think I'll be posting a lot of images from it until after I've done, but I promise not to neglect my blog (like I've done this last month!)

thank you for being patient, readers!

Here's a test walk cycle from my film

I painted all my BGs with gouache. They're currently taking up a shelf of my school desk. No wonder people paint stuff in PS now instead.

color swatches for character animation :)
this is what I look like 90% of the time now.

a few doodles

it's been a rainy day.

I found that doing my film digitally (boarding digitally, animating digitally), that any non-animation art I do on the side has to come out traditionally. I like the balance.

24 Hour Film-a-thon

Another term, another 24 hour film. I definitely love doing these, and hope that I can run another film fest next semester too (though I guess I really should be working on my thesis...)

There's something about the spontaneity of 24 hour films that makes them so appealing. There's so little between the artist and the work- not much time to erase and perfect, so you kind of get this garbled message of my subconscious.

I used this as an excuse to get back into Flash for this year. (...i love flash...)


check it out- my storyboards/design/production plan. it fits on three pages! and how.


more later.

Films and Ottawa and Side Projects...

It's been some time! I switched the layout up a bit on my blog, finally got rid of the black (I started this blog when I was sixteen, so it's about time it got out of the punk rock phase of its life). Going to be working on graphic design/layout of the rest of my web stuff over the next couple of weeks!

Next- thesis film. I'll be making a big post next week with what's happening so far. It's been a blast, a lot of fun (though I do love storyboarding the most), so hopefully the rest of the year is just as smooth! Elevator pitch- It's an educational film about a boy trying to learn how to get the girl.

If anyone's heading to Ottawa for the festival, give me a shout if you want to meet up and go sketching! I'm not going to much of the festival this year, but I'll be traipsing around Ottawa looking for things from the 50s.

And finally, I've got a couple of side projects on the go, but the big one is the 24 Hour Film Festival. It'll be the third year I've run it, so if you're a student at Sheridan, and want to get involved in making something silly and spontaneous, talk to me sometime soon! I'll be putting posters up and the whole shebang.

also I hope winter skips Ontario this year.

Pinup Ladies

I'm not quite sure when I'll be posting next, as I'm in and out of working out the kinks of thesis film stuff... To procrastinate on that, I just work out my frustrations on lovely ladies. They make nice warmups.

A plethora of pinups. A plentiful pile of pinups.
