Cathedral - Toned

Here's the toned version of the cathedral I created inspired by 13th-18th century Spanish Gothic architecture (for layout class). The linework is >here< -!

Digitally edited version to fix some prespective and depth issues:

Cathedral for Layout

Here's the linework for a cathedral I created inspired by 13th-18th century Spanish Gothic architecture (for layout class):

           I'm a bit behind after a horrible stomach bug that caused a chain of rushed projects, but after working on this for so long I couldn't ruin it by rushing tones on the original linework. I can hopefully get the tones and characters done on this by Monday (as well as a second layout set in a tighter space).
           Coming up this week as well I have a pitch to Nancy Beiman (who was incredibly kind in letting me pitch on Monday), a caricature portfolio (that I'm very excited about!), and a life drawing portfolio;  in week 14, our final week of the semester, we have a final 3d animation due (very fun), a painting assignment + colour key from boarding class, an expression change animation, and our Leica reel from this Monday's pitch. I'm really looking forward to working on all of these things.

Royal Winter Fair- Year 2

I had a second year field trip to draw farm animals at The Royal Winter Fair at Exhibition in Toronto on Tuesday! This trip was a bit less serious than last year's trip (and a lot shorter). 
Here are some farm animals from this year (watercolour and pencil):

Grease pencil & character design

A wonky drawing of my character design teacher, a sketch from my most recent character design class, Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder from The Producers, and a tonal sketch from painting class. A bit of a stressful week for us, but it's passing by quickly!

Halloween and Birthday Cards

Here are some birthday cards I painted with gouache recently for Gabe and Jess' birthdays:

And a Halloween contribution from my roommates: Jesse's pumpkin (which I proudly gutted) and Eleanor's cupcakes (thanks to Jesse's mom who mailed him muffin wrappers and sugar knives)!

La la la

Hehe. Gif.

Painting - German Town

 Painting Exterior assignment, with digital corrections


I saw Book of Life on the 17th at a promotional night for Sheridan students, and I LOVED it!!
I hear the movie isn't doing too well, so if you get a chance, go see it or buy it when it comes out!

On a semi-related note (Book of Life is about the Mexican Day of the Dead)...
Happy Halloween! I don't have time to draw anything festive so here are some weird jack-o-lantern people and a few more exercise assignments from layout class (the goal is to improve on placing a character within an environment)... and a sketch!

HTTYD2 Themed Banner

BACK IN SCHOOL! FINALLY! I'll definitely be posting more stuff. It's gonna be an awesome year! (for now. We'll see when I wake up with my face slapped up against my tablet in the studio on a Sunday morning).

So the second years are doing a themed banner- draw yourself as a How to Train Your Dragon 2 character. I didn't have time to give myself a dragon because I've got other school priorities to take care of but here it is!

Character in a Setting

I thought I'd scan and upload this since I'm handing it in (last week of school) and proooobably won't ever see it again. Worked on this and finished it today- character in a setting. The little robot is painted on a different piece of paper.

Also, my roomie Rebecca's group film is called Red Alert (unrelated to this)! It's awesome. I'll post a link to it when it's up.
