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!

Space Chickens in Space Trailer

Hi, hi!  A trailer for the projects I've been working on all year at Studio Moshi, as an Animation Team Lead, has been released!  Here it is in all it's glory.  It's pretty fun and manic and colourful, with funny stories and appealing characters. All the good things that I enjoy when working on a project.

It's always interesting when working with people from different countries and time zones, getting assets and feedback but it works.

We have 4 months left on this project.  Where did the time go?  It feels like it just zipped by.  I am looking forward to a break.  I think...this time around I will focus on getting my website done and working out all my social media accounts and perhaps a few new pieces as well.

Been doing budgets too.  I think I may have been eating out way too much and shopping, but hey...can't take money with you when you die!  That said, I think I will endeavor to be a bit more frugal in the next production.

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…
