Characters for Schoo'...



These Characters were created as part of a new assignment for the second semester Animators to work from. An acting/posing assignment, Students will have to dissect and analyze the character builds and then keep the characters on model whilst posing/emoting effectively over the emotional roller-coaster that is -  "The phone call". 

I believe, although fairly simple and graphic, these Characters will be both fun and challenging to work on. 

Thought I'd share :)

A Life Worth Killing For: Update



Hola!

After an extremely ridiculous five-week long Ontario Colleges strike, (which will take the wind outta anyone's sails) followed closely by a pretty hefty semester, I am back at it now.

You'll recall, back in October I started working on Character designs prior to the strike. Now that I have finished all my next semester prep work, I have a bit of time between semesters to make some headway on these, so I am using some of this time to finalize some of the initial designs for the VERY graphic novel in association with Pals Eric Myles and Rob Paul

Above is a second pass at a couple of the Primary CHR's (John & Jane) and a first go at Maurice Beals/ Wanko the Clown.  

Stay`Tooned,
