Quick RWF Update

I'm kind of back from the dead! I went to the Royal Winter Fair again this year but spent most of my time eating pulled pork poutine. We're in the concept stages of our film right now, but I have some stuff to upload when I can. Over the next two months I'll be focusing on portfolio pieces for internship applications so LOOK OUT!

More Splatoon, More Boards

So here's what I've got today... A lazy Splatoon drawing, some excerpts from summer thumbnail boards, and an update: I'm starting 3rd year in September, which is primarily focused on a 3rd year group film I'll be making with about 12 other students. I'll be making a 3D film this year, so I've mostly been messing around in Maya all summer!

Sketch Swap!

Drew this sketch for a collaboration, from our new collective tumblr:

"First off, we’ll be doing sketch swaps: we all sketch, rotate to ink, and rotate again to colour. Participating this week:
Jesse - http://jessemnews.tumblr.com/
John - http://johnmagvas.tumblr.com/
Josh - http://gemoshi.tumblr.com/
Kay - http://kayliebenner.tumblr.com/ - http://kaylion.blogspot.ca/

We drew descriptors, character types and settings from a hat and combined them to create themes for our drawings. I’m Kay, and here’s my Menacing Aged Necromancer on a Western Film Set."

Poochy Pouches Backgrounds

I was lucky enough to get to work on some advertising stuff for everyone's favourite dog product, Poochy Pouches! .... Hah, no, it's not a real gig. :( My client is Nancy Bieman. Here are backgrounds for beats, thought I might as well do something with them.
