Game 26 Round 06: Cradling the Killer Whale


Soooo...I made a mistake yesterday with the order of items and had to make some adjustments to this one last night.  Yup, Astri and I have had to list what we're doing ahead of time since we're both pretty busy with work and life in general and this gives us a chance to keep up by doing a few images ahead of time.  I haven't had that luxury though.  Been too busy!   I am hoping to do one tonight....so very late tonight cos am going out tomorrow...to have fun and to enjoy the sunshine which I haven't had much of lately since I've been indoors, chained to a computer or a painting easel doing work.  I enjoy and love what I do in life but hey...it gets tough sometimes juggling a lot.  Now I can take on less but that also means missing out on some very cool opportunities and I hate missing out when I can still push through and do it!

Now  am a big fan of Mark Mason's blog and this one is particular spoke to me.  Have a read.  It's pretty good and I like his analogy.  He swears a lot in his articles but not much more than any normal day in an animation studio.

Some journal entries!

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!

IF: Burning

Howdy! This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash. I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
