Good evening, friends!

Another attempt at a drawing in Photoshop. This time, I did the line work in Illustrator and coloured it in Photoshop. I think I can say I'm done this one.... but I'm sure I could work on it forever if I let myself!

Anywho, hope you like it :)

Just a quick drawing tonight. Jesse and I in our convertible, driving along hwy 1 in California. Oh how I wish we were there now!

This is the almost finished pantomime acting shot we have for 4th term at AM. There are still some things that need tweaking, but I thought I'd put it up anyway :)

Let me know what you see happening! What's the story behind this shot? And just so we're clear, the eyes are different sizes because that's just the way the model is, not my choice. :P

This is a drawing I made for my friend Rob. He's one of those outdoorsy, canoeing, camping, seeing wild bears and bald eagles type.

Hope he likes it!

Summer 2009

Jesse and I headed to San Francisco for our end-of-summer getaway, and it was wonderful. What an incredible city! Really beautiful architecture, nice hilly streets (to put it mildly) excellent waterfronts, and amazing forests not far away!

Here are the panoramic photos we took. Hopefully they're big enough that you can really see them :)

On the drive up to Muir Woods. Not 100% sure exactly what we're looking at, but I think it's Richardson Bay.

View of the Sunset from the Top of the Mark Hotel cocktail bar.
You can see the fog rolling in on the water, and even the tip of the Golden Gate Bridge sticking through it (about 1/3 of the way in, to the right of that wide shorter building).

The cliffs and ocean on the drive along the coast, Highway 1. On our way to Monterey and Carmel.

The 18 Fairway at Pebble Beach Golf Club.

The San Francisco skyline, as seen from the ferry to Alcatraz.

Truly, a fantastic trip! Also, I really love how my camera takes panoramic photos ;)

I have a new blog layout, and I just spent all morning setting it up, so I figured I'd post something on it as well :)
This is a Halloween card I made this past fall. Just something silly and fun, I hope you enjoy!

Term 2 for Animation Mentor is complete!

Here is a compilation of all my assignments thus far, starting with the most recent. I'll explain the first 3, and the ones from class 1 are pretty straight forward, so you can figure that out on your own ;)

- Dance
- Drunken Stumble
- Jump and 180 Turn

I've fallen in love with Maya, I really REALLY like animating in 3D! It takes a little while to get used to, but every assignment shows me something new and I'm loving it all :)

Let me know what you think, like or dislike, and if you guys have suggestions for 3 consecutive shots I have to do next term... something just displaying body mechanics again, the model will be the same one from the dance, so no talking yet.

Thanks everyone!

Hey Everyone!

I actually have something to post, yay! This is my Class 1 Progress Reel from Animation Mentor. I started in January, term 1 ends this Friday, and this is all the assignments I've done this semester. We also had to pose out a character, and I may make another video of those for you to see.

Anyway, I'm off to actually DRAW right now, so I'll be back soon :)
