sousy loop

So I was working on submitting a loop for this monthly animation site loopdeloop. Every month they send out a theme (this month is rock) and people from all over submit all kinds of crazy loops, it's pretty great. I had been working on a loop (the theme was liquid), I was cramming to get it in by the deadline, but just as I was almost there Toonboom, which I was animating in crashed and the scene I was working in bugged out.

So after a bit of to and fro with tech support we got to the bottom of it and here we are. The bulk of the work was done over two days in a mad dash to get it completed. I have to thank Timothy Merks for pointing me in the right direction with the old timey film grain.

The idea just popped into my head really, I would have liked to have given myself more time but what are you gonna do hey.

Drawing challenge Day 4

Best Friend
Well, my best friend is my wife. We have been together for 7 years and we got married last November. I think she knows me better than I know myself sometimes! Hope you've had a great weekend. We went and saw The Artist today, and really enjoyed it! I thought it captured beautifully the era and style, yet still used the technology we have in a sparing, but very effective way.

Day 3 - favourite food

Well this one was pretty rushed as you can see.
I love salmon, Grilled with a Bearnaise sauce on a bed of mash is just amazing. I find it to be such a satisfying meal for some reason. For some reason I lost wacom pressure in Photoshop (which is a pain in the ass) so I sketched it up in flash. I'm not really happy with it, but what are you gonna do? I have to head out. Have a great weekend!

Drawing challenge day 2

Favourite animal
It was a toss up between Bears, or monkeys. But it could have many others.

I tried to do something different with this one, it was pretty rushed so I wanted to go minimal. Bears crack me up; one minute they can look really timid and cuddly, and the next they're eating your face off. Happy Thursday everyone!

happy New Year - 30 day challenge

Well a belated happy new year! I had planned to do a 2011 review blog but was just too preoccupied  with work, and other things. I seriously would like to post more, and hopefully I will... We will just have to see I guess.

So I have seen a few people are doing this 30 day drawing challenge.
And I figured, let's see if I can get my act together and post 30 drawings in 30 days. It's a good excuse anyway. And I know what your thinking, but I don't care.

So here we go Day 1: Yourself
Amazingly I managed to convince a beautiful woman to marry me late last year. Go figure hey?
