A rough drawing I did to warm up today. My time at the NFB is coming to a close. I'll be back in Toronto on the Wednesday and I think it'll be nice to be back there. It's got my cat and family and friends and a lot of heating. Been feeling chilly in Montreal.

Hope you're enjoying the Holiday Season!!

I'm painting an ORC!
I've been pretty busy lately. I'm at the NFB in a program called Hothouse to make me a Director. I'll have more on that and the final film in 3 weeks! Because the deadline is in 2 weeks!

Back to work!

Vampire sketch

Warm up sketch for today here at the NFB/ONF. It's pretty cool being back here in Montreal. I'm making my own film and getting mentorship in editting sound and animatics, directing, animation and anything I want to ask. If you can check out the Hothouse program through the NFB. It's only available to Canadians with few exceptions. But it's better to try than to not know.

Greek god Pan playing his flute! I wanted to just work with lines and enjoyed doing the contours with his fur.

Done with SketchbookPro pencil tool.

Hope you're having a good end of summer. I'm headed for a change up and headed for Montreal to work at the NFB! Can't wait to show what I'm working on.

Ghost Boy Sketch

Here's a sketch I did to warm up for today. The subject was Ghost Boy so I may a magic hoodie that you can see his bones through and give him ghost powers. I'm not sure which ones though. More on this later maybe.

Happy weekend!


Demented Soothsayer Sketch

A sketch done for Character Design Rush on Facebook. It was done with Sketchbook Pro. I really like the pencil tool in it. I'm currently getting used to the paint brushes and making custom brushes with it. Hopefully I'll be able to fully switch from PS because it's a lot heavier on my computer.

Hope you're all having a good summer!

Sailor Moon Ink

Here's my latest drawing to practice inking! It's none other than Sailor Moon in space! It was really cool playing around with this new brush setting in Sketchbook Pro. Can't wait to try and make some more with it!

Hope you're avoiding the THUNDER!!!

Swampy WIP-Line

Here is the latest of Swampy. It's all lined and there is a rough colour ready but it's all weird. Gonna refine it before a post up here. This is turning out nicely. I feel taking the process by steps is really helping. Can't wait to see what final colours look like.

Swamp Witch WIP - Silhouette

I pushed some of the shapes and started to fix some structural issues. Next will be to clarify further than off to clean. Can't wait to get to colour to experiment.

Hope you're all having a great week!

Swamp Witch WIP-Sketch

Here's a Swamp Witch that I'm working on to break down my process. I'm trying to figure out things that I need to improve speed and quality. So I'll go through each step more thoughtfully on this one to see if there is something that I need to do to improve these elements of my drawings.

So far this is the Sketch. Next will be the Refine followed by the Clean, the Colour and finally the Lighting. Can't wait to see how this turns out and what I'm gonna learn!

Tegan and Sara Wip

I felt like doing another drawing of them twins. It's based off the things they say they like in their about. I don't think I'll draw another one for a while. I think if I keep doing it it'll start getting weird. But who knows.

 SketchBookPro with pencil tool.

It's a space man with his space sword. I think swords are cooler than guns to draw. I look forward to decking out the hilt.

Tegan and Sara-Forest Fone

 T:F*ck off
 S:Shut the f*ck up

 I was lent a copy of The Con recently and it came with a Making Of DVD. I'm a junkie of Making Of.. DVDs. I watched it and I found it really inspiring. It showed how long each song takes with repeated takes, different ideas, individual instruments being played and spending 7 hours to match up drums. I later followed up by watching some of their recent interviews. It took them well over 10 years to win Junos. It's really cool to know that it takes time and a lot of hard work to still get success. I get a little anxious when I'm not super successful right now. It feels like I'm not working hard enough. It was really relieving to hear how much time it's taken them to get where they are. So I'm gonna keep working and start my own 10+ years of working hard and see where that get's me. Also see their shows. They are little rascals that bicker with each other and it's really funny. Search live performances with the word "banter". Steph

Janelle Monae Valentine's Day Card

I wanted to work on putting energy and an action in my drawing. Janelle Monae is very energetic. So she was my choice to draw. Then I figured since a lot of her songs are about love it would fit to be a Valentine's Day card. Hope ya'll get those cinnamon heart candies. They are the best! Steph

You Can't Containment Prime My Heart

A drawing I did of a friend's Scion game. It's of unrequited love so far. Will the girl figure out he's in love? Will she have similar feelings? Will Chiron the Centaur keep them in fitting pits until it gets figured out? Who knows. Maybe I'll draw the answer soon! Hope you're enjoying all this snow! Steph
