Animation Reel - January 2013

I made a new Demo reel!

This is some of my favourite animation that I have done over the past couple of years.  Most of it is personal animation that I have done in my spare time, mixed with one or two things from a past job.

I also have some new stuff that I'm currently working on, and will be able to show soon.

Figure Drawings

I thought I would post some drawing for a change.  I recently started taking a course on drawing the figure at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, so I thought I would post some pic's here of my progress.  The class is 7 weeks long and is taught by Lisa Davie.

I thought I would start with stuff that I did before the class began so I can see improvements.

These were done over the past month or so.  I am a big fan of Stan Prokopenkos video's on figure drawing, and some of these drawings are copies of his, to help me understand his process.

These are a few 2 minute poses.

Some construction drawing

These ones are longer poses, around 15-20 minutes.  I usually focus on line and gesture rather than tone, but its something that I plan on doing more of.

This last one is a few drawings from my first class at NSCAD.  We focused on 3 minute gestures, using a "searching" line and trying to avoid drawing contour.  I had a pretty hard time with the searching line, a lot of contour still found its way into the drawings, but it was a fun class and Im looking forward to next week.

Web Slinger


Here is another project that I worked on while at Ad-Dispatch.

Spider-man's Web-slinger

On this project I had the opportunity to animate Spiderman! as well as model and animate some of the UI elements.

I had a ton of fun doing this one, and hope to have such great opportunites in the future.

This app is free on the app store, and the experiences are in Walmart stores everywhere!

Character Textures

I have been working hard on my soldier character concept.
I have finally gotten it textured and have some renders to show.

I learned a lot making this character, and can't wait to start another one!

New Life Drawings

Some new stuff. I'm pretty happy with the progress that I've made in the last few years. Hopefully I'll have even better stuff to post in the future!
