Fugget About It

I moved from Elliott Animation to 9Story Entertainment ( now called 9Story Media Group) in 2011 to work on Fugget About It. It's an adult comedy. The layouts are done completely in Flash and are also painted in Flash. Here's some examples of my work from the first season.....


















It's a lot more work than you would think to do these in Flash. I used the line tool set at "Hairline" because you can enlarge or shrink the art work and the line always stays the same thickness.

Bolts & Blip Detail Work

Some more work from Bolts & Blip. These show how detailed designs have to be for the 3D modellers.










Beauty & The Beast : The Enchanted Christmas

Here's some work I did for Walt Disney Canada at the Toronto studio back in 1997/98 on a production called Beauty And the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas. These are rough designs and done before everything went digital so I have no copies of the cleaned up versions. These drawings give some examples of a more realistic style.......





These are good examples of how I work in rough first before I take it to a clean stage.

Supernubes

I worked on some development work for DHX. One of the shows was Supernubes. It's currently in production. I have no idea how much of my designs they used since I have no further involvement with the project. It seemed like a fun show. I hope it does well. Here are some location designs......








  I had fun doing these designs. They were done in Photoshop CS 5.

Total Drama - All Stars

I did some design work on Total Drama All Stars as well. It was nice to get back to a style I helped create. Here are some of the locations......




I was only on the show for a little over a month. It was fun while it lasted.

Grojband - Funpack Designs

In 2013 I worked on Grojband. Here are some Funpack drawings for the board artists to do their thing with.......







I also did some episodic Layout work which I will post various examples of soon.

New Artwork For A New Project

I have been busy on a new project and using a Wacom Cintiq 21 UX to draw on. These were all done in Photoshop 4 and I've left out the projects name on purpose. It hasn't aired yet and I don't want to give away anything. I thought I should finally post something. Here they are.



I enjoy drawing in Photoshop. I use files at 80 dpi and use the brush tool set at 3. It gives you the feel of a pencil. However the resolution can lend itself to blurry closeups. There's always trade offs. I still prefer pencil & paper.
