Ridiculously sick. Its not a happy moment. People who say it is awesome to get sick so they can stay home and be lazy obviously don't get sick enough to feel its pain. How frustrating! Although I WAS getting better, I took a nice 180 degree turn on Friday. My fault, but it was soooo worth it! My Cintiq arrived! Had it sent to a friend's place which is a 20 min walk (ish) away. It was warm and cold (yeah..somewhere jumped a lot) and super windy, but I made the trek for it. So I am sick, but got a new toy to play with.

Gave me the chance to finish this piece I started almost a year ago!

One of the last WoW fanarts I'll do in a while (as I have no interest, or the money to play the game). Also a good send off piece...from what I hear, if I rejoin WoW, soul harvesting will be removed from the game...

So here is my piece in dedication to the weird evil soul draining things warlocks did.

More digging...

I was going through some more stuff, and found some sketches I did in the summer using MS Paint. Wow that program in Windows 7 has come such a long way. Considering my computer is still running Windows XP and Co, I spent a considerable amount of my break time playing in Paint with a Cintiq. Rough Sketches (apologies I seem to have located only fanart...)

While I'm at it, here's some fanart work from over the summer. Wanted to focus on learning Digital line art.

Cleaning out the server...

Spent the day story boarding and finishing up my leika v.1 for this year's film. So far I'm not really pleased with the results. Will tweek it a bit more then post for help. Sheridan got so many cintiqs in this year, it's great! I'm ordering mine soon, but will try to make do a little while longer.

Also had some fun times going through the server, backing up and cleaning out the stuff from last year. Reminded me that I didn't post the link to our film. Here is some stuff I fished out of the server that hibernated over the summer months...

Responsible only for the water splash. Everything else (including compositing) was completed by Qian Wang.
