Oh nooo, this is turning into a life drawing blog again!!  This is my final life drawing portfolio for the year.  I think my teacher kept one of my drawings, so I guess I’ll update this when I get it back.  Sorry for the lack of updates; I’m kind of busy with school, but I should have some stuff to post soon.

Some friends and I thought it was a good idea to make another short film in 24 hours straight and this is the result!!  I was dying and couldn’t see straight, but we ordered some pretty good Chinese food so that was nice.

Thingo for the Ghibli Jam!  Uh, it’s basically just the movie poster though, cuz I’m not very creative, lmao.

This is an assignment for my digital tools class.  We had to draw and rig a character in flash and have it do something.  It’s a little dry, but it was fun coming up with cheats to make a cheap animation look nice.

Tumblr seems hell-bent on refusing to upload it, so I hope it works!

I also have another life drawing portfolio due for tomorrow!

Every time I finish a self portrait I feel like Mulan in that bit where she has an existential crisis because this chump barely looks like me and I was holding a mirror right in my face while painting this

Some character stuff.  I’m not really sure what I’m doing!

Heyyyy so Sheridan does these like 24 hour film challenge things twice a year and they’re totally rad.  Charlie Richards has hosted the challenge and the film festival for the past few years, but because he’s graduating this year Matthew and I are continuing the tradition for him!!  If you’re following me and happen to be a Sheridan student, now would be a good time to get some friends together and consider making some really dope film over reading week, yo!  It’s a good way to put the junk we’re learning in class to work, and, if ya think about it, it’ll only takes one day to do!

Tumblr’s being a jag so you have to click the gif to make it run (yikes).  This was an assignment for class.  I kinda blew off most assignments last semester in favour of personal work, but half way through a friend said “there’s no reason any of the work we do in class couldn’t be a portfolio piece” so now I’m trying to go hard on our assignments.  The ones that give us a lot of freedom, at least.

The .swf had a lot of gradients and blurs in the background that doesn’t translate well into .gif format, so the bottom pic is what it should look like lol

The colours are different on every monitor I view it on!  Weirddd

I made a small gif for the grass type day instead of like a few sketches.  Not sure why, though, given last week’s work load!

This batch is not as good, I think.

Ayyy I’m a part of this! Was super fun (and also really tiring) to make this and whatever.

Pokeddexy stuff.  I figured I’d upload them in batches so the stop won’t be as abrupt as Inktober was, lol.  The last week of school should be pretty hectic (the week that just passed definitely was) so uploading like 5 at a time means no one will know if I missed a day due to homework or whatever!
