It being portfolio time, and gaining few requests to see my portfolio I have decided to place it online for everyone (mainly Fundi's) viewing pleasure. (Don't steal my ideas)
I received and 82/100 which is better than most of the people I know, though I am sure many people in my class can testify to getting a higher score as many people in my class are awesome artists. Many of this stuff is embarrassing by my current standards, but it got me in, to i still hold some sort of love. Here goes:

The Tale Of An Assignment I Got Sick Of..

I may look at it again over the break-week, time allotting. Hopefully everyone enjoys.

Science Damn You, Winter!

Take your room. Open all the windows and let winter drift in. Now, turn on your A/C and set it relatively cold. Done that? GUESS WHAT!? My apartment is probably colder than yours!
I lie, but it is still damn cold, and distracting. I have on 3 layers of socks and am wrapped from head to toe in a puffy blanket with only my face and hands exposed. My room is screwed beyond belief.

Tonight was intended to be a homework-crushing night. But working in extreme winter-like cold is near impossible. I will post my accomplishments for the eve (and earlier this week) and let you look at it and laugh as I did not have as an effective night as I had wished for. Blasted cold.

Kitchen Layout

Technically you have seen this, but this is the cleaned up line work for the final. You will notice the missing table and bowl. They are the overlay and held-cel for the assignment and I didn't feel like scanning them.

Character Design

I have an otter. He crushes clams and eats them on his tummy as well as squishes his face in many cute ways.


Our next assignment is a still life (whoopee....) we had to do one in class, this is what I turned out in under 2 hours. Not awful. My final for this project should be up next week.


Everyone's favourite turtle murdering Italian brothers from Brooklyn. Tonight we watched Super Mario Brothers (live -action movie) at school. Obviously my inspiration, among other art I have seen. Woot!

That is all I have to say. My animation is on hold for the night, but soon I will crush it like a clam shell on my belly. Oh, otters.


I didn't want to make a new post for it. I finished my coloured Pink Panther Walk Cycle and added sound in Digital tools class today, and here it is!

Son of a Batch (creeper edition)

Where to start? It seems like as of late I have only been putting up process animations and not any final works or animations. I have to work extensively on Young Hercules this weekend, expect the final in a few weeks. I am going to nab the Final version of the Pink Panther Walk Cycle and the coloured version for Digital Tools and throw them up on here soon. To hold you off, however, I have backed myself up with a long list of newly scanned art and such. See below:

Painting Class:

Science fiction, night and day scene. One is rendered digitally (for reference) the other in guache on an acrylic background.

Character Design:

An otter, my next character for character design class. Probably more to come on him shortly.


Literally just finished it. I decided to so a Firefly-esque kitchen, for layout class. I then coloured it Feng Zhu stylz in Photoshop.

Fan Art:

Ben Folds keeps me awake and rocking while making panthers walk. He deserves my gratitude in drawing form. (See below for colour W.I.P)

Personal WIP(work in progress):
Both of these have been put on hold until I have more free time.

And as promised in the title.. CREEPER DRAWINGS:

Jonathan draws super models from photo reference... creepy

Jonathan draws people at lounge night, maybe they should kick him out?

Many faces of the Trafalgar Rd. Food Court.

3 classmates.. Sorry Mitch, Adam and Wayne.

Until next time.. unless I die.
