Colour Key For Storyboarding Gouache Paint


 This year's paintings... I'm not too too proud of... BUT! I am trying to play with new styles. Enjoy~

Storyboarding Project One












This is the first storyboard project! Students had to choose a poem, and use it as an inspiration to start a new story. Mine was:

 
"There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead.  When she was good, she was very, very good.
But when she was bad, she was horrid!"

There are some people who admire blonde hair, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into the story....on top of that, I had more fun with changing the little girl into a male wildebeest, who just wants a little lovin ...  (Story of my life D: )

Royal Winter Fair Drawings




Our new life drawing teacher wanted use to experiment with different mediums. On top of that, he allowed us to add some personalities to our studies.  Spent 6 hours in a farm convention...had a nice big poutine... came out smelling like a farm... Life was great :D

Skyhouse

A little house for people who loves the sky. This was a 'work in progress' before the gouache painting

Year 2

Woooohooo!! The first semester of Yr2 was absolutely exciting. Seeing familiar faces, newly renovated studios,pulling late nights, crazy socializing, and seeing progress in everybody's work.  Our second year started off where we ended in first year, but the workload is more CRAZY! Everything is great, but our degree requires us to take literature courses  with essay and presentation components... I guess its a breath of fresh air from drawing...but when you have to write essays about theories and English literature during our hell week (when most art projects are due), the breath of fresh air stinks! Other than essays, the literature courses could be interesting from time to time.
As expected, our new instructors are wonderful.  They are well experienced in their profession, and they are willing to share every knowledge they know about the industry/tips and tricks/personal life IF you sit down and talk with them.  Animators love talking about what they know!  The instructors this year are also very lenient with our creativity.  Most of our projects are more open ended, rather than following a set rule (which is actually more difficult D: ).
I haven't been updating this blog for a while, but hopefully this year I'll grow some more as an artist, and share some quality work with you. I wish everyone a wonderful year! CHEERS! Always work hard in everything you do :)

Sketchbookiity-Dooooo

3-5min
1-3min
Some people wanted to see my summer practice... well here ya go.. I can't post up my whole sketch book, but hope these are good enough examples!!! I wish I could get more nude drawings/animal drawing for next summer. Its hard to keep motivated to draw expressionless people on the subway/cafe/mall. But practice is practice. Hope everybody are enjoying their summer =). Miss school and it's wonderful environment

A little animating

One of the first Projects

And the final project ~

If basic shapes took me this long to animate, I cant imagine how long a full 2min film is going to take **Shock face** ...Very Enjoyable though.

Zoo Drawing Fun ~










Animals are definitely difficult to draw, since they don't stop to pose for you.... Other than that, they're very cute and fun to draw!
