First Layout - Last Week of School

Okay so, uhmm, yeah things are a little crazy right now at school. I recently just finished Life Drawing class, and Animation History. All I have left to do are:

14 Layout objects with 3 views
Bugs Bunny "Jump-on-to-a-Box-with-Perspective" Final Animation
Organic Galleon Final Layout
(Finish the Timing) Final Storyboard Like-A-Reel
Character Design Final "Evolve your previous Assignment" Assignment
4 Digital Tools Assignment which includes making a demo reel


Animation History Exam


Someone shoot me.

Nahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, just kidding, even with no sleep, I've come a far way of just teaching myself to let things be. I'm happy that I'm almost done first semester. What a ride it's been.

More Seneca Stuff Uploaded Behind Schedule

Long time no upload! I forgot to upload some of my work in the past weeks so here it is. I'm still killing myself over time management. I'm so glad reading week is this week because it'll give me the opportunity to really catch up on work and have a fresh start.

I'll post my other lifedrawings and hopefully I'll keep improving. Here's some character design stuff that i've been working on that'll hopefully fend off the art dogs that I know. Take the meat you killers!

The designs were for stereotyping 6 characters and the photoshopped colour drawings were an assignment in digital tools class. The line drawings are done by David Bluestein who just so happened to be the Art Fundamentals Co-ordinator as well as my teacher.

Week FIVE and Still ALIVE!

Hello Again! These are just some of my week 5 drawings. I added the week 2 stuff because I thought it was an interesting way for me to get back in touch with the life drawing process of "modeling". Week 5 cafe sketches were therapeutic. I'll update again very soon since we got back our storyboard and layout assignment. I'm dreading the feedback on our first three animations though. As I promised, I'll update again VERY soon.

Animation = First Selling Your Soul, Then You Turn Into A Zombie

Hi Everyone!!!

It's been a while since I've been updating this old thing, and I apologize once again for not posting my school work or any other for that matter. Once I get some projects back, I'll start scanning and explaining what we have been doing.

The first few weeks have been extremely fun and hard. It's a challenge, although I do have to admit, I don't think I am approaching time management effectively. I've come from being a lively, feisty fighter, to a barely walking, barely standing, coffee-drinking zombie. I'm already established as "Jackie the Machine" or "Jackie the Workaholic" and even though my classmates use it endearingly, the truth of the matter is, in the long run, it's not healthy.

I've been feeling pretty lousy lately, and sleeping and staying over at school when you live 5 minutes walking distance away is not exactly the best logic I've ever come to calculate. I'm going to have to rethink my plan of action because it's definitely not working. I still love this program though, and I never complain about the work. I think I might just have to pull back on the reins a bit and let my self breathe. I can only do so much with my skillset and mindset right now.

On a more cheery note: this is what I've been up to.

Back To School, Fools! BWAh HAh HAhAh!

Mass apologies for not being able to post recently. I went on vacation as well as had a one hell of a month in August.

School has started back up in September, and typing this post is all I can do to keep awake ( I didn't sleep very well the night before the first day of class). Hopefully, all goes well in this coming semester, and I plan on meeting lot's of new and exciting artists who have made it into our program. Hopefully, everything I've learned up until now will stay with me...I fear I'm a tad bit rusty.

The new people that I've met so far seem like a friendly bunch of people...OH MAN I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS PROGRAM!!!

-love you all

Subway Sketching Continuation of New Process

So, here it is. More of my thing, less of strained boxes. I think I'm going to try to be a little loser, but now that I have some more knowledge of form and planes as well as boxes and sculpting the forms out. I'm going to try to imagine that instead of drawing a restrictive box. Here's to you, kid.

Panda Power! Oh It's Back, Baby!


So, this is some studies of pandas and brown bears I'm doing for the Design Challenge Blog that some Senecans started up. some drawings are from "The Art Of Animal Drawing" and they really are helping me understand volumes. go check out the site on the right side of the links. top one.

Pandas are an inside joke and one of my friend Nate (see links) suggested I do a royal panda counselor. I coulnd't have made a better choice. I'm having too much fun drawing my panda counterpart in a design. First I wanted to study masses and bone structure, then figure out poses and attitude to describe his royalness. More roughs on the way.
