The Legend of Megamaritetroid!!

My submission for this year's Animation Art Auction. It was a huge success last year so hopefully we'll raise even more money next weekend.

It was a lot of work but fun to do, I think it took around 25 hours to complete... my shoulders were sore afterwards, I just want to point that out.

The Amazing World Of Gumball - 3d Animation Showreel Part 1

I removed the previous Gumball post cuz it wasn't happy with it and would have taken too long to do the rest of the episodes that way. So, I've decided to condense all of season 1 into 2 handy videos.

I won't be doing part 2 for awhile as I'm getting married on Saturday and then I'm off to the States and Mexico for 2 weeks, whoop whoop!!

This session we were also asked to move away from drawing everything in the centre of the page and instead try to move things around using all or some of the pose and see if we could come up with something more interesting from the norm:

I tried putting the first 3 poses together in the same space.

Movie poster for a classic horror or murder mystery. 

Propaganda poster (I've been playing a lot of Bioshock Infinite).

Thinking Too Hard

For the Boulder Art Blog:

I don't like cats.... I do like dogs.

Ah no, cats are ok.

First class I've been at since being on crutches, it was too much trouble up until now. I even lent one of em to the model... that's how sound I am!

Some blind, contour drawings... I think you can tell which ones I was peeking at.

Finally, while I don't think these two drawings are very good, the contour line dividing the two poses seems to work for both of them. Almost like an optical illusion... a happy accident!

Mega Man

For the art blog in Boulder.

Besides being a fantastic game, Mega Man 2 is the first Nintendo game I ever rented which makes it one of my fondest memories of being a kid. It's soundtrack is also still one of the best. Here's Mega Man facing off against Metal Man, long live 8-bit games!

I'd also like to show how misleading the box art was to the in-game graphics:

Ridiculous... but still awesome.

The power supply on my pc blew up just before christmas so it was out of action for a few weeks, hence I got out of the habit of posting stuff on the blog but anyway, back in action now.

I decided not to use charcoal or pencil for this class opting for watercolours instead. I didn't think I'd enjoy it at all but it was a lot of fun so I'll use them again in the future. I also noticed that I seem to avoid drawing legs so I'll try remedy that next time.

Go Baltimore!
