illustration dump

Here’s a small dump of some illustrations from some months ago. I love making up characters, but trying to create mood with light and color is another challenge. I would like to achieve a  sorta cinematic feel with my illustrations someday (although at the same time I just love the simple elegance of line drawings as well)

On another update, I’m making rapid progress on my own personal animated film project. Its taken a lot of sweat and tears to do the amount of animation Iv’e done on it so far, but I still have a long way to go till I’m really happy with it. I’d love to share gifs once it gets closer to being finished, cant estimate when I’ll be done with it, but keep an eye on this blog!

june/july sketchbook dump


Here’s a assortment of pages from my recently finished June to July sketchbook, it’s a mix of observational + imagination drawings as usual. Sketching is no doubt where I feel the most free when making art, there’s something really exhilarating about using just lines. I don’t think ill ever grow tired of sketching with a 0.5 uniball pen. I fill up hundreds of pages like these so at least I can dump a few  here.

CDW homework dump…and more

Thought I’d do a final dump of my work from character design and environment painting class from last semester. It’s the last post for awhile, I promise! This last semester at CDW has been a great refresher on a lot of things, I learnt some new techniques and improved in some areas. I can’t recommend that school enough for anyone in Adelaide, or Australia wide actually.

In other news, I’m moving to Sydney for a storyboard job! I can’t wait to dive into boarding but am still coming back for the weekend of Avcon. The next month or so is gonna be a crazy, hectic and awesome. Anyways, onto drawing new things! 

Roy G. Biv’s Hyperdimensional Journey

I took a class at CDW this last semester called Advanced Projects which was basically let us do whatever sort of project we wanted. I will admit, this concept had it’s roots as a simple schmup game I had been painstakingly learning how to make in Game Maker, but the whole thing got a bit messy so I resorted to just boarding something vaguely inspired by the game. Here’s some vis dev as well as the final sequence. I might go back to this idea in time…who knows.
