the man of metropolis steals our hearts

Hey! So i had a few hours to kill... and i had Open Canvas open in front of me... and ive had this picture in my head for a while. So i decided to throw this down onto the screen. I basically just painted one of my story boards panels again... the same as the other robot painting (which is why the underdrawing is so crummy... each story board panel is only like an inch and a half wide). Just another colour/mood study for my film.

Out of Egypt, into the great laugh of mankind, and I shake the dirt from my sandals as I run.

Hey! So its been a long time since I posted anything... and that is because i was just in Quebec City for the past... week almost. So hopefully my stuff hasnt gotten too stale to anyone who actually reads this stuff. Quebec is AMAZING by the way! The city is SOOOOO beautiful! Stupid Oakville is ugly...

Anyway... more on that later! Im kinda busy right now... so ill talk more later. Here's another concept piece for my film. A digital painting that i did in Open Canvas.

I call ye cabin neighbours

Hey! So i know i didnt really post anything yesterday... but this post will be worth double!
I figured out how to post videos from YouTube and be able to view it right from my blog. WOOT!

Anyway... this is a test animation of the opening scene in my film. There's no textures... and the character rig is fairly sloppy. Im going to have to rerig the arms and hands... if you notice the hands kinda wig out a bit when he climbs up onto the rail.

But try not to look to carefully for all the problems, and enjoy!

going to the moon, brb

So i passed a huge milestone today. I finished the first pass of my storyboards. This may not seem like that big of a deal to a lot of people... but it is for me because i HATE storyboarding! Im terrible at it... and it takes me for frickin ever! But now that thats done, i can move forward with the more fun and exciting parts. Like making my Leica Reel (i dont know if im spelling "leica" right... ive never known)... and modeling... and texturing... and ANIMATING! YEAH! This year is gonna be awesome!

Anywho... here's another concept painting for my film, and a rough model/rig of my little light bulb character. As soon as i have my leica done, ill post that on YouTube. That should be cool.

bin 'dere, dundas

This pun-taculare title comes to you from one of the most beautiful and talented women in the world, Stephanie Boutet. You can look her up on her myspace site,

Well... Steph went home today... and im still in a missing-her-feeling-sorry-for-myself mood. So tonight im going to post another painting of her (her stage name is KatePhanie). I promise, tomorrow i will get back on track with my film. And as soon as i figure out how to post movie files through YouTube... ill start doing that too! So keep your eyes open!

Say "YES!" to Quebec!

Just a little break from robots for the moment. Steph leaves tomorrow to go back to Quebec. Its been a wonderful month having her here... but i suppose her going back home will be good for both of us. She'll be able to work on her music, and i will be able to concentrate on my film. Plus ill still get to see her for our birthday (day... not days) and christmas and all that. So we should be just fine.

I digress... in honor of my wonderful girlfriend and the time we've had together this month, i will post a painting i did of her. Hope you like it!!

A little rusty. haHA!

Ahhhh puns... they slay me.

Well... first day back from Thanksgiving... and it went horrible! Life Drawing kinda sucked... and Literature was... well... i went in hoping to get some story boarding done... but that didnt really happen. In the end i guess my day wasnt that bad. I got to hang out with Steph after school... and we had a good supper and watched a good movie. So it was actually a really good day. Hope your day went well too!

Heres another concept painting for my film! Enjoy.

So... because i screwed up and made a now useless blog, i am punishing myself by posting a second painting today. By doing this i am dipping into my reserve of artwork for the days that i dont feel like producing a piece of art to post... this will put more pressure on me to make more work every day. I hope your happy!
Oh yeah, this is concept art for the film that i am producing this year. The working title for the film is Loose Change right now. Be warned, most of what i post on this will be for my film... so it might turn into a bit of a production journal... which could be kinda cool actually.
Have fun!

Maybe this time...

Ok, so this is now my second blog entry ever... and ive already given up on my old blog. It turns out that when i made my first blog, my friend and i had this GREAT idea for the name of the blog... but i couldnt remember what it was. So i entered which was WRONG! It wasnt until i spoke with Lianna that i realized my error. So ive made this new blog!! Get it!? Its like... im... a baggins... from the Hobbit or something! ahahaha! Kills me. Anyway! Im just gonna post my first painting again. Its an homage to one of my favorite artist, Bill Watterson, one of the geniuses of our age.

Keep your wide eyes wide wide open for updates YA!
