Expression Change!

Just freshly finished. I decided to go with a simple idea and design for this one, since I started a little late.

Monday, December 11, 2006


A bunch of caricatures and portraits I did of celebs and random people over the last 2 weeks. I'm not going to bother naming them all, but see if you can get them yourselves. All of these were done in blue pencil and either outlined in graphite or marker afterwards. I left some untouched for no particular reason.

Now, I know I should be studying for my Art History exam tomorrow, but this felt like a more productive way of spending my time.

This Semester's Animations!

Here are the Walk and Run, Weight Lift Toss, and Wave Boat Sack line tests I did this semester. There's still the Expression change we have to do, but I'll post that at the end of the semester. Still haven't started it yet, so this is it for now.

Past Animations

I decided to post some of the animations I did last year. For some reason YouTube has a weird issue where each clip you submit gets chopped off at the end. This explains why my head rotation and the flour sack stop abruptly. Anyway, there they are.

2nd Painting Assignment

Just got it back this week. We had a choice of backgrounds to paint and I did this one. Kinda rushed, but it turned out ok.

Only one for today

Just a caricature of my dad I did a couple of days ago. Thought I'd throw this up since I have little time to do anything else not school related at the moment...*sigh. Hopefully there will be something new in the coming days.

Winter Fair week

It's been too long since I've posted anything, but finally I've got something new to throw on here. Hopefully I'll start updating more often in the future.
The following sketches are from the Winter Fair that we had to go to this past week. I really should start using something other than col-erase pencils for sketching, but whatever. I guess it's just automatic. These are just a couple of extra pages of cafe sketches I did earlier this week at the Oakville mall. Once again in blue col-erase...

I finally scanned some caricatures I did last week in class and decided to post them up. Some are good, but others are just plain bad. I was too lazy to seperate the bad from the good, so here they are.

1st Painting Assignment of the semester...

Heh, This is the first painting assignment we had to do this year. Everyone did the same layout, but painted it however they wanted. It was an interesting experiment. I did another one, but that turned out like total crap, so I decided to do another one. That turned out to be a smart decision. I'm not gonna bother posting the first one I did, since that disaster of a painting is just plain embarrassing. Anyway, here's the new and improved version. The scan is not the best, but it's close enough to the original.

Aardvark skeleton and girl sketches

I went to the ROM this past Wednesday with my class and we ended up doing some skeletal sketches. I ended up doing a bunch of quick gestural drawings and this unfinished 11x14 inch drawing of an aardvark's skeleton.
The other sketches are just some random girl sketches I did recently in a cartoony style.

Damian, Where Art Thou?

First and foremost I'd like to apologize for the lame Title of this post and secondly, I'll answer the question. School has been keeping me busy and I've been neglecting this blog as of late. Other things always seemed to pop up here and there preventing me from posting anything over the past 2 weeks. I was planning to post some sketches from this weekend, but my Art History essay has kept me from doing anything else. Unfortunately I have no new art to post up at the moment, but I promise there will be something in a couple of days, so stay tuned people.

Aaaaaaannnnnnd in the spirit of all half decent posts, I'll leave you all with a juicy screenshot and a concept art shot from the upcoming Xbox 360 title Gears of War. It's looking to be one hell of a game come early November. IGN has a fairly new gameplay video if anyone's remotely interested. Here's the link. EB Games has it currently scheduled to ship on the 7th.

Spiderman fun...

I don't know what I'm still doing up; I should be in bed for chrissake. Anyway, I had to finish this up. I actually should have been doing some art history reading, but I figured this was far more interesting and fun. History can wait until this weekend. So yeah, here is the drawing and the Photoshop version.

Monday, September 11, 2006


School's back! It's been a long summer. Too long I think. I'm finally gonna get back up to speed(hopefully) in drawing. Anyways, I did these just recently. I was just messing around with sketches and ended up liking one of 'em, so I turned it into a finished piece. My photoshop skills need a lot of work, so I just threw in a simple colour scheme. Nothing special. Heh, thats it for another few days.

Thursday, September 07, 2006


Since I haven't posted any of my stuff in a while, I'm throwing these sketches into the mix. I was watching Pulp Fiction and decided to draw Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis. Nothing much, but at least it keeps the flow going in here.

What a weekend!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the ComicCon took place this past weekend. I ended up going all 3 days, which is why I didn't post anything for the past few days. Anyway, the highlight of the show was of course Jim Lee. I was lucky enough to meet the man, get a bunch of signatures, and have a picture taken with him. That alone was worth the $40 I paid for the 3-day pass. I managed to snag a couple of sketches from Humberto Ramos and Francisco Herrera. I also picked up a Venom print from Francisco and a TMNT one from Greg Titus. The last 2 sketches are from the sketch-off Jim and Oliver Coipel had on Saturday. They were given away to two lucky raffle winners at the end of the session.

If you guys are interested in checking out a bunch of other artist's sketches from the event, check out Alan Cook's blog here. He even managed to get one from Jim himself. Way to go man.

OMFG!!! Hilarious! I just couldn't resist posting this up. It was in the back of one of the What If... series of comics. I forgot which issue but it doesn't matter 'cause I'm posting it here for your amusement.

More Zoo pics!

The title is pretty self-explanatory, i think. Just a continuation from a previous post. I've squeezed all 10 pics in this post instead of posting 2 seperate batches.
