Our short film is coming along... we're well into the animation phase. I can't believe there's only three weeks left to animate everything! Animation is hard.... and sometimes I just want to paint.... so I do!! I hope I don't forget everything I learned about painting after this year. Here's a quick update! :) some film studies from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Fight Club. I'm trying to keep these small, quick and loose. I have to stop picking backlit lighting situations... heh.

& some Digital Figure Painting.... Thanks Bob for the tips as always!! :]

Hey guys! Here's something I worked on as an intern at Blue Sky Studios this summer...

Thanks so much to my wonderful mentor, Bob Mackenzie, who was so patient and talkative and kind to me! :) :) :) :)

Burns Court

"We build our games like a Japanese garden, where the design is perfect when you cannot remove anything else. I think that by doing that, the voice of your work is more coherent. If you have a lot of clutter on the top, the work may be more impressive, but you won't really know what it's trying to say. Games have to be emotional. People need to experience a powerful range of feelings."

fascinating article about thatgamecompany

Hello all!

Been seeing a bunch of other people post their artwork for the thesis pitch that didn't get picked, so I thought I'd jump the bandwagon! This pitch was about a gas station manager who discovers a wild bear on his property, and ultimately discovers that the bear is not quite what he seems to be...  We were really trying to go for a graphic super stylized, yet still 3D (not toon shaded) kind of style, if that makes any sense heh...


In other news, it's summer whoo! Seems like it'll be a very exciting summer!
