Andy's Sketchbook

I bought a copy of Grand Theft Auto 5 yesterday just to check it out.  The box states that it’s in ENGLISH, but it clearly isn’t.  10 minutes into the game the characters begin speaking some kind of unintelligible pseudo-American gibberish.  I sincerely can’t understand what they’re saying except “Fuck, Dick, Bitches, and Pussy”.
I think I need subtitles translating the dialogue for people who speak English.  And here I was under the impression that American English was, you know..  English..

Did Someone Say Salted Pork? on Flickr.
Out of all the fantasy genre tropes (Orcs, Goblins, Elves etc.) I have to admit that DWARVES have always been the coolest for me. I’ve had a hankering to do a fully rendered fantasy scene for a while now, and I’ve finally put some time towards one. I’m not a layout man, so I’ve blurred the crap out of my sloppy brush work. That goblin is having a bad day indeed.. Drawn in Photoshop CS5, using a Wacom Cintiq Companion.

Making a GAME!

Testing out the animation blender for our upcoming game project.  Working pretty good I’d say..

I’ve been having a lot of fun with my new WACOM Cintiq Companion slate PC. So I’ve put together a drawing of Demonysh as a Sonic Character in toonBOOM Harmony. Yes, this is all 100% rendered vectors. (With a lot of effects levels from the software.) (No Photoshop here) Drawn in about 2 hours, in ToonBOOM Harmony.

I’ve put together a small video showing the different stages I went through for one of my latest images.

This video cross-fades through these stages, in this order:
-Original ruff sketch drawing
-Final
-Back to ruff sketch
-Raw vector clean line drawing, with flat colour pass
-Vector line art shading pass
-First shadow pass with masking, and outer matte shading (based on colour-filled vector drawing)
-Coloured subtle highlighting — FINAL
This may not be as super informative as some of you were hoping for.  But at least it shows the stages I go through to produce an image like this.  Hope you find it interesting.

A fun vector doodle I put together in ToonBOOM Harmony 10 to test out my new slate PC. I’ve picked up one of those fancy WACOM Cintiq Companion WIN8 PC’s.. Will do a full review of it very soon.

I downloaded Tomb Raider “Definitive Edition” on my PS4 last night.  Took some screenshots too.  Wow!  This game is gorgeous!

Picked this up today because it’s been pulled off of the Playstation Store. I understand it’s a bawdy good time.

CAT PUNCH! K.O!!!!
Ok ok..  Before anyone jumps to any conclusions, NO I did NOT punch my cat.  She’s a love-sponge and will rub on you any way she can.  I just struck a funny pose while she was rubbing on me.

Massive 24hr + black-out in Toronto.. Freezing rain. Total shite weather. At least there’s something neat to look at while I freeze my balls off in the house..
