Kitchen Sketch

Here's a quick sketch I made of my mother-in-law's kitchen over Christmas. I was relaxing by their fireplace when I was inspired to make this sketch.

Dungeons and Dragons Characters

Yesterday Marc and I started a new D&D campaign with some friends. One of the best parts about a new campaign is that we get to make new characters. Marc made a Minotaur Druid named Elros Ar-Belzagir and I made a Dwarf Fighter/Cleric named Ailsa Orccrusher. Marc by far spent the most time preparing his character before hand, giving Elros a really well thought out personality. It made the game much more interesting and fun, especially since he didn't reveal any details about his character to anyone beforehand. Here's a sketch I did of my character.
Ailsa Orccrusher

Her shield is blank for now, I'm not sure what's going to go on it or what it's supposed to look like yet.

Male Elf

Ok, so I was supposed to stop drawing elves, and yet here's another elf... at least this one is male :)

Old Sketch

Here's an old doodle that I did back in late February/early March. It's a typical for me to make small drawings with lots of detail, though not always with a lot of success. I particularly like this image though.

Halo Night

Yesterday Marc and I were carving pumpkins and playing Halo at our friend Marie-Eve's place. It was a ton of fun and I was glad to have the chance to do a bit of sketching there. The guys made fantastic drawing models; they barely moved at all while they played until someone killed someone else :)

Wood Nymph

So, I was going to try to draw something other than an elf, and I ended up with a Wood Nymph. Oh well. I guess technically they are different.

Outdoor Sketches

Here's a few sketches of some buildings that are in my neighborhood.

This one is often referred to as the "Flat Iron". It sits at the corners of Front St., Church St. and Wellington St. It's pretty close to the St. Lawrence Market in downtown Toronto.

This is a sketch of a building on Front St., just above the "Spring Rolls" restaurant. I like this image more than the first one because I didn't bother putting as much detail in it or finish it off completely.

This sketch was of the Steeple that sits on the grass to the side of St. James Cathedral. I finally got brave enough to start putting in some watercolour into my images and then a huge rain cloud chased me out of the park. I made it home just as it started to rain.

Gnomeo & Juliet Trailer!

For the last two years or so I've been working on a film called Gnomeo & Juliet. It's based off of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet but with garden gnomes. I did a lot of texturing primarily on sets and props, as well as a little bit of help in the lighting and compositing department. I think the trailer looks great! Everyone on the project did an amazing job on it!!! =D

Yet Another Elf

Another Elf. I think i need to start drawing something else for a change. Anyway, this one was drawn during last week's D&D night. I didn't have a chance to finish it so I think I'll keep it as an unfinished sketch.

Here's a quick sketch of my D&D swordmage character named Lyra. I drew her while waiting for Shatner to give a talk at the Toronto Fan Expo on Sunday. One of these days I'll figure out what her sword looks like.

New Blog!!! =D

So, like most people out there, I'm going to attempt to make a blog. I can't promise it'll be good, and I can't promise that I'll ever actually get around to posting again. However, if all goes well then this blog will help me to stay artistically inspired and will be a place for me to post my artwork! If not, at least I gave it a try :P
