Let it snow

Hey all,
I just had the urge to make a comment about the immensly abnormal snowfall. I'm at my school still, and...well, I've never really spent a winter in Vancouver, but it is so unbelievably cold I can barely move.
A classmate of mine just pointed out that it started snowing again....second one today. Yikes. I shouldn't complain, though...we wanted a white Christmas (if it'll last that long!), and at least I'm not still back in my old town, Mission. My dad was telling me that...well, too many people have already DIED in the last...what, three days? Lower Mainland drivers are NOT PREPARED FOR SNOW. Very dangerous out there.
To anyone in this area - for God's sake, try taking transit. Stay warm, bundle up, and wash your hands frequently - nasty cold's goin' around.
Take care, and...well, I guess we should try to enjoy it for what it is, right? ^_^;;;

I Could Be Doing Something More Constructive

Hello, everyone....
I had a bit of an..."artistic breakdown" on Friday...
Y'know, it's funny - I KNOW I should have been doing cleanup....but...I just...couldn't. I had to draw something different.
So, I ended up with this - Midna, your Twilight co-pilot from the new Legend of Zelda game for the Wii.
I'm pleased with how it turned out. :D
Well, back to work. ^_^

Way to Go!!!

Remember good ol' Esteban? That guy's been busy!! I stumbled across this while on Cartoon Brew....Congratulations, Esteban!!
Crazy mo-fo's already won an award!! ^_^

Once again....

Hello, once again.
Alright - the second one is of Sora, from the famed Kingdom Hearts series. I was doodling him in class, realizing that when I draw him, he has quite the resemblance to Ash Ketchum, the imdominatble child star of Pokemon.
Huh....I probably should've colour-corrected these before I posted them. Oh well.
What else....ah yes! I'm totally done rough animation! Wait....I think I already posted that. Nevermind.
What else...oh! The Nintendo Wii is SO COOL!!! I worked the Wii release at my store, and honestly, I have to say that it was the best line-up I've ever worked with. I played security, so even when I had to go out and tell everyone that we were all sold out, they were really good about it. If you think about it, a vast majority of the line-up were all Nintendo fan-boys, who are some of the nicest people in the world. It was great.
But then...:D
My roommate bought one as well, along with Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Trauma Center: Second Opinion. I was a little disappointed with TC, though. I mean, I have the first one for the DS, and the Wii one is EXACTLY THE SAME. Like, WORD FOR WORD. So far, the only difference is that after a certain story point, you're introduced to a new playable character somewhere else in the States. Oh, yeah, and the art is a BIT different. I'm willing to give it a chance, though.
Zelda? Fucking sweet. Totally awesome. I mean, you have Link, who's already super hot, and he's a werewolf?! How much more do you need in a game? I'm set! I don't need anything else!
But really, it's great. It's suprisingly easy to control with the Wiimote and the Wiichuck. They did a great job.
And who could forget my lovely Final Fantasy III? It's SO CUTE! Way to go, Akihiko Yoshida. :D
Anything else exciting? Ah, yes.
I'm sick.
I caught a cold yesterday, and I've been staying home all day in bed. Fever, headache, runny nose....gawd. And still so much clean-up to do. Well, I'm heading off to school tomorrow, regardless of how I feel. Although even sitting upright takes a tremendous amount of effort....
I'm off to bed (even though that's where I've been for about 90% of my day...).
Goodnight, everyone. Stay dry and warm, and don't forget to wash your hands often. :D

Not enough time for what?

Hello, everyone.
Posting at home, and I finally scanned in some doodles I've been doing!

The first one is Fran, a character from the new Final Fantasy XII game. I LOVE her character...she's so....quietly wise. :D Plus, she's absolutly beautiful. I had a hard time drawing her - her face and features are so round if you see her character art.
Okay....I'll post the second one after - I'm fighting with Blogger right now.

Celebrate Good Times

Hello, my dears.
My, what a busy week! I'm awfully happy....
Now, I just need the official sign-off.
But then I'm set! :D
Just....really.....working, I guess. Super tired....snore....This weather is very dangerous for everyone, directly, and indirectly. Directly, as in the sense of, like, the Chilliwack river flooding, and indirectly as in the I'm-in-bed-and-it's-warm-in-here-and-cold-out-there-and-I-wanna-stay-in-my-bed sorta thing. Dangerous. *_* Suxx0rz. :P
Shipping delays at work....PS3 coming out tomorrow....super. But damn! I'm working on the Wii release on Sunday! Oh well....I said I'd work Sunday's again...I can't complain.
Oh - one last thing - Anat and I have found God, and it's name is Creme Caramel tea, by Stash.
Now, normally, I wouldn't touch Stash tea with a ten-foot-pole, what on account of the fact that it smells and tastes like ass, but this stuff is really good! I'm impressed! They describe it as being based off of the Dolce de lete dessert (sp?). Man....Mmm mm. Bit of milk and sugar, and you're really cooking! Yum!
Well, I also drew a picture that I'm really proud of, so I'll scan it in later on.
Take care,

It's getting harder....

Hello, everyone.
It's Monday, my "real" day off....I know I should be going to school, I know I should. I worked all day Saturday, and, honestly...unless I HAVE to go to school, it's getting harder and harder to motivate myself to get up and go. I'm always so tired, and staying at home and relaxing just seems so nice, you know?
Put yourself in my shoes - outside, it's cold, gross, and it's a one-hour commute to school. OR - I could be here, in my apartment, wearing comfy pj's, and drinking tea. Hmmmm.....decisions, decisions....
Well, at least I brought some work home, so it's not that bad. I'll make an honest attempt to get SOMETHING done today....blah. This blows.
Sorry. ^_^;;;
Take care,
PS - Head over to to see the trailer for the new Simpsons movie. Don't forget to read the little comment that goes with it - us animationist types will have a good laugh. :D

More Gems from Run Wrake

Hello, everyone.
Just a quick post before I prep for tomorrow...
For those of you who liked that 'Rabbit' film, the lovely guys at Cartoon Brew posted a link to all the rest of Run Wrake's shorts and/or commercials.
I'm warning you, they're STRANGE.
But, on the other hand, they're really cool.
Something about his stuff just grows on me. Can't explain.
Good times, noodle salad. :D
Take care, everyone.

Rough Animation, sc. 18

Yet another scene. Huh....the sound seems to be off. Strange. Also, this starts at a 6 FLD on the little kid (close-up), tracks over to the left, then zooms/trucks out to a full 12 fld.
