StephanDraws - thanks. Why did you start a new account? I think it's fun, if not slightly embarrassing to have one long sketchbook - When ever I need a pick me up, I go back a few years.
V3T - Thanks ^_^
Whirly - Hand is getting better. Still a bit weak, so I haven't been doing a lot out side of work. Definitely on it's way though, thanks for asking
I've checked out the cintiq companion but it's too heavy. My lower back is much worse than my arm so I try to carry around as little weight as possible.
Once the weather gets more agreeable I'm going to pull out the paper sketchbook and get some real life sketching done. So done with winter!!
The usual BAD ASS stuff, I love the storyboards you have, I have been away in peru for 6 month,
opening up your page, others included was a pain in the ass. So I just posted my stuff, in case of
losing my sb. Anyway, I am learning and learning, thanks to you, you gave me this color tool.
I use it quite often, actually right now for my xmas card !
Did you get a Cintique companion in you hands, how was it, do you like this new toy from wacom?
What a nice (and long ) sketchbook! Those characters look awesome, you must have really professional drawing skills. I haven't looked through the whole of your sketchbook yet but so far the variety of studies looks really inspiring. How long have you been drawing, if I can ask?
Lost the last couple updates so I'll just do one big one.
It's been a whole year since I've been here!
I haven't done a lot of personal work, in all honesty. It's been a pretty dry year and I've been working a lot.
My husband and I are expecting our first child- a little boy! So I am officially on maternity leave for the next year! (thanks, Canada!)
I'm not sure how that will effect my work, or this sketchbook, but it should be interesting
Free lance project I worked on with some friends. I did the bg design/ layout and some of the animation. My friend did the character design You can find his work on Vimeo : Here
Q&A from previous comments:
Q id you get a Cintique companion in you hands, how was it, do you like this new toy from wacom?
A :Great piece of machinery - but too heavy for me to get one. I still prefer my paper sketch-book
Q :How long have you been drawing, if I can ask?
A :I have been drawing my whole life, but didn't have much in the way of instruction. There's no big art craze in Newfoundland where I spent the first 20 years of my life. I just learned on my own. @ 20 I moved to Toronto and went to college for animation. Started working in the industry at 23 and I'm still there now at 29 .

Hey Rhubix, really like the flow of lines in your character sketches and how you always nail the expressions of the poses (especially in #857 is amazing)! I would also like to improve that for my characters. Any secret you can share with us?
In case you would like to improve something about your drawings you could spend a bit more time constructing your heads. Although your facial expressions are really lively, sometimes the features seem to be a bit off (the eyes are sometimes not looking like they are sitting in their sockets).
See you around and also thanks for the feedback in my sketchbook (which was wiped away with the other latest posts but I still appreciated)!
