Majority of these doodles were done at work when I had some free bit of time. The one in the middle, I did today. May 19 marks the 4th birthday of my character, Saki. :)
One of my directors at work is on a business trip on the other side of Canada and the other one disappeared for an appointment this morning. The storyboard for the next episode hadn’t been checked yet, so I had no work for half the day. I ended up doodling these in Sketchbook Pro and just bummed around at my desk.
Rollingstarr’s Dark Tooth
Monarch butterfly is not what I might’ve chosen myself thematically, but I can see the logic and the colours look gorgeous together.
Wow, thanks! This makes up for that dumb 3 minute doodle thing I did. You made it lovely! :) I don’t think I could ever draw my dark Tooth again without ruining it. I honestly should have put more thought into the design. I just thought monarch butterflies were pretty… hah.
How did you learn to draw?
Hi there! I drew as I was growing up, so I was self-taught for most of my “art life”. In my last year of high school, I knew I wanted to be in the animation industry so I applied for a 2 year commercial-animation program (2D animation—not 3D) and got in after graduating. I finished the program last year, around this time.
From school, I’ve been able to get critique from people who have worked in the industry for a while, and learned off my classmates who we all stuck together and almost saw each other everyday (sometimes on weekends, too) for two years.
Most of my painting knowledge came from self-development in high school. There was only one semester of painting class in the last year of the program because of the emphasis for technical drawing skills in the industry. Painting was more so fine art, so I was lucky to have played around and taught myself through high school. Then a month after finishing animation school, I was hired at DHX Media and learned a couple of things. I finished at DHX around Feb. I’m now a storyboard revisionist at Slap Happy Cartoons. :)
Hopefully that answers your question! And to anyone who wants to improve in anything, just work hard and get through it, because you will get better. :) And if you feel like it “sucks”, just think that’s the first step to becoming better. Progress is always progress!
Got bored at my aunt’s dinner party, so I was smart enough to bring my sketchbook. Here’s some stuff on my Spring and Autumn knights and then the one I call Immortality.
Anonymous asked:HI! Just wondering, are you still going to draw violinist!Tooth and Jack?
Awkward pose. I’ve always been a Spiderman fan as I was growing up. I just felt like drawing him today.
your blog made my day. <3
Hello! Thank you so much! :) You have some gorgeous stuff, too! I’ll be looking forward to your updates. <3
elisamariiie asked you:
:D I was also wondering how Baby Tooth would look in your style. Maybe if you aren’t too busy you might want to doodle a quickie of her? I mean she’s so insanely cute, who wouldn’t want to? x3
Here’s a babytooth from me to you. :) She was fun to doodle.
“You’ll come home, right?”
“Of course I will.”
It’s never easy to say good-bye.
Felt like doodling my pilots today. The story is slowly solidifying and the script will hopefully be sent to the voice actors soon. (Finally..!)
