Concept Art for School Game Project "Final Elements"




Here are MOST of the elements I need to model during my Easter break in Maya.  That's right, I left out quite a few objects.  Insanity I tell you!!!  I've already started on the bath tub on the last day of school before break and it actually turned out really well! Still lacking a lot of the decorative bits though.  Anyway, the goal is to get all the modelling done before school starts in 10 days, on top of freelance work and life in general of course. 

The drawings above...where drawn and coloured in one day.  I was going full speed ahead on Wednesday just to get it all done by Thursday last week and the teacher really liked them and she liked my concept art document so that's one thing out of the way!  These aren't the only drawings I did either...I had to do a top, front, side view of each element as well...essentially I probably drew about 20 or so pages in one day.    The good news is, that's a part of my assessment all handed in, done and approved. Hurrah!  These where hand inked and then coloured in Photoshop.

My mum always said, "All artists are crazy".  My take on it is, "All artists need to be crazy because the lifestyle is seriously quite mental".  Either starving, or working on other jobs or having so much work that it gets overwhelming.  Better busy, than bored I always say!

Today is Easter Sunday.  Happy Easter everyone!!!  I think I will spend mine chilling a bit, doing some Maya homework, a run and seeing the folks tonight.   Perhaps even do some drawings....maybe I will just sleep.  Yeah...sleep sounds good.

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!



In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…
