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 that...is 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.
