Fireside evening

Just a little loop of my chimera girl Chantelle and Sherbet. Gifs never look nice when this much color is involved, so I slapped some sound on it instead.

strange marine life

Drew my OC Tanya but got carried away with the AE’s puppet tool hah, it's so easy to use! The hardest part is saving a gif for the web. She has qualities of a leafy seadragon, but (if i animated it properly) can shift in color like a cuttlefish does. Guess I draw her when I just want to draw something girly...and fishy.

 TLDR; Yes I love anthros.

RIP Cosmo 2004-2014

Our border collie Cosmo died recently, he lived a long doggy life. He had blue eyes as a pup and they turned brown as he got older. I really couldn't feel better until I drew a little something for him.

Avcon 2014 wrap-up

Hey guys. I've just been recovering from another great weekend at AVCon Adelaide! Sold the usual masses of stickers and badges, but I'm also thrilled that many of my new A3 prints have gone to good homes!
Quite a few people asked for photos of my Reisen Inaba cosplay, so i've improved my pose-striking abilities. ;) 
Once again, a huge 'thank you' to anyone that stopped by my stall. I can't emphasize how much it means to me that there are people who like my art (& even my original characters) enough to spend money on it! Although I've attended 4 cons this 'summer' but I still can't get enough of the energy and excitement they make!  The 'carny' lifestyle beckons...  I'll leave you with a little Okuu animation I did for 2D practice. Over and out!

Only 1 day left!

...Till Avcon 2014 that is! I've been neglecting blogger so here's some recent stuff. A group shot of all the characters in Super Dangan Ronpa 2 and some observational drawings done at CDW studios. Aaah, I love being back in Adelaide for the 'summer', just had to share my sentiments. :;)

Feeling that Avcon 2014 hype yet?

I've been to a couple of cons over the last few months, but of course....the best is saved for last! I have 20+ new characters for my fellow Adelaidians, alongside other new additions such as... A3 glossy prints!
Pardon my phone camera. Full illustrations can be seen here and here.

I'll be at Stall 35 which is near the Artist Alleys' entrance and surprisingly enough, the exact same spot as last year! Huge thanks to Rosie Coleman for getting me into the alley at the last minute. Can't wait to see familiar faces and meet new people!

New Zealand wrap up

Finally got some time write about my recent trip to New Zealand for the Armageddon Expos. Met some very friendly folk in Hamilton and quickly sold out of my themed playing cards, so I've ordered a couple dozen more!  I loved meeting fellow artists at the con in 'Windy Welly'. Special thanks to all the brave souls that got their caricature drawn. (I finally have enough examples put on my sites' caricature page, yes!)
Thats me cosplaying as Reisen Inaba from Touhou.
 Overall, an amazing trip. :)

food science comic

I completely forgot that I had whipped up this comic as a final assignment in the Matter and Molecules class from last semester. Forgive me science buffs, I tried. :)

chinese lions

The last Character Design II assignment, I chose to do Foo Dogs yo. Kinda happier with some of my goofier explorations, but oh well, design is a challenge.

Here it is finally, my 2nd year film! Enjoy.

The girls' name is Mari, and the boy is Nicholas. Just saying, since it's good give characters names lol.

By the way, I have a freshly made tumblr over here, since that seems to be the bustling blogging medium these days. I still love blogspot though! ;)

8 days

Zeke is an old character of mine, but I never shared his story cause I was like 16 and didn't blog back then. It's was based on a vividly surreal dream I had, I should dig it up and draw it out. In a nutshell he's some intimidating mountain loner who hardly speaks.

No animals were harmed, It was long dead beforehand.
8 days till doomsday.

portfolio dayyyy

 I got story callbacks from Blizzard, Disney and Pixar. I'm ecstatic they liked my stuff and it's inspiring hearing wisdom from the big league. The quality of work being produced by my peers is mind blowing. Days like this make me so proud of the Character Animator clan.

My Storyboarding and Character Design portfolios are here. I did some Aussie animals on my CharDes opening page.
On a random note, I've been watching Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. It's a great retelling of the original story, but follows the manga closer and the spectacular animation in the dramatic parts makes it more intense & heart wrenching. Envy is a flawless character~**~*~*

teeny tiny mammoth babies

Drew a neolithic shaman-lady and some babeh mammoths in class today. Feels like I haven't used pencil in ages :'')

Been crunching down in preparation for portfolio day, but here's a lifedraw. Oil pastel & china marker on newsprint is divine.

Already had a shamrock shake with friends. Just thought Saint Patrick would be a little peeved his holiday is often represented by obnoxious pagan creatures.

Dichromatic lotus butterfly ~ ancients*

*just the name of a song I'm addicted to, and was prolly listening to when I drew these hah.  It's crunch time, but I'll still consistently blog with life draws'.
Oh since you scrolled through that other stuff, I guess i'll leave you with a weird WIP animation from my film. Gonna have to click to get it to replay.
