Sailor Moon Obsession

When the dark wood fell before me
And all the paths were overgrown
When the priests of pride say there is no other way
I tilled the sorrows of stone

I did not believe because I could not see
Though you came to me in the night
When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Then the mountain rose before me
By the deep well of desire
From the fountain of forgiveness
Beyond the ice and the fire

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me...

The Thief and the Cobbler

Though I am an animation student, there are still many films I have yet to see, the Thief and the Cobbler was one of them up until recently. Thank goodness for youtube or I might have never seen it. I was also lucky enough to find the original version, the one that is now being called the "re-cobbled" cut. So if you haven't seen it, Educate yourself.

I thought it was wonderful, it is just amazing what can be done when you have no deadlines and you have more time to pour your heart and soul into something. I did also see the other two versions, Arabian Knights and the Princess and the Cobbler. They were not horrible I will admit, not great but not as terrible as I've heard from some people. One of the things that I found kind of ridiculous was that they had a perfectly fine movie, there was finished animation, finished score, finished story, why change it and waste money? That I really didn't understand. And I must admit Tack is a much stronger hero in pantomime than with Matthew Broderick doing the voice. All I hear is Simba and I don't like it, and the Thief was much more comical when silent.

One of the wonderful things about the movie are the layouts, the visual illusions and the detail is awe inspiring. Makes me with I was better with perspective...I just don't get perspective sometimes. Especially during the destruction on the One eye war machine, the spikes and gears, it was amazing. Would have been hell to animate though.

I did see all the places where Aladdin ripped this movie, and I still love Aladdin but not as much as I now love this movie. I found the characters to be more engaging, and they had much stronger personalities. Tack and Yum Yum now have a place in my heart as the best couple in animation. She saves his life and he see's her greatness and beauty in that simple act of breaking her shoe, and she finds him charming and sweet though he isn't much to look at and never speaks. And how can you not love Vincent Price as Zig-Zag, what s GREAT villain! Fun to look at and great lines.

So please go and watch all 11 parts of the re-cobbled cut, don't mind the pencil tests and animatics, enjoy what should have been finished. Richard Williams, Canada loves you!!!!

In our animation lecture today we were talking about an artist named Dan Haskett, a teachers of ours knew him when he was in new York working for Disney. So we got to see some great old sketches that Dan had done in the early 80's, one of the drawings we happened upon was a page of Dan's drawings of Cinderella from "Rock and Rule". Now I liked that movie, but I have to admit that story wise its...pretty bad. This movie pretty much destroyed Nelvana's chances at making feature films and getting out of TV shows and commercials.

One of my favorite characters in that movie would have to be Cinderella. Shes so well drawn and animated, she has a wonderful range of expression and is so hyper and animated. So with the really horrible pireted copy of "Rock and Rule" that I have, I went through, found some nice shots of Cindy, paused and did some expression exploration.

These drawings are mainly to showcase what my talent in the animation wolrd is, and Clean Up. Its relaxing, and I enjoy it so much. Some have said that I am crazy, and thats true. But I have always had a very steady hand and even my "rough" work is rediculously clean.

These aren't the best drawings of Cinderella ever done, but this sin't really what I'm used to drawing charater wise, the style is so different from mine, and for a bout an hour of pause draw pause draw its not bad.

Character Design "Theme" 18-Century France

For my second year character design class we are focusing on costume and the art of fabric and drapery. So we could choose either Western theme, Medieval, or Victorian England. I asked my teacher if i could possible do 18-Century France, the Marie Antoinette style, he agreed. THANK YOU EMSLIE!!!!

Here I have the Heroine and the Villain, two Opera singers. Cerise Durand, and Madame Amalia. Madame Amalia was once the most popular and celebrated songbird in all of France, she was sought after by Kings and composers alike. One day her spotlight was stolen by young Cerise, she wasn't looking to steal it, she only wanted a small part in a new opera, but he talent could not be denied.

Sushi Stars

These are from an on going series I'm doing about school girls and sushi. I love sushi, it's one of my favorite things to eat. I love to design costumes, but oddly enough I am terrible at school uniforms, so I decided to challenge myself. The girl in the green is actually based of my high school uniform. More to come.
