Hello interwebs.

Yes I am alive.

Here are some really old sketches, because I don’t get to sketchify things very often these days. Also half the sketchifying is full of stuff I can’t actually post without risking the wrath of terrifying legal draculas, but I think one of the things might be online soon, and then the draculas will be powerless. I’ll still be getting myself thirty pounds of the most legal garlic I can find just in case (one should always strive for the highest legality in all produce anyway).

kukez:

Well, it’s February so my deadline for Voro didn’t hold, but it was insanely optimistic anyway. March sounds nice and distant enough.

I am still perplexed by the fact that this person does not have ALL THE NOTES

Goblin week, day three
Fancy huntsgoblins ride shar peis, because more things should ride shar peis. Except shar peis. A shar pei riding a shar pei would probably cause a shar pei singularity that would collapse the very walls of reality, or at least turn them very wrinkly (and a wrinkly wall sounds kind of ew).

A little bird told me it was goblin week. It was fleshy, green and smelled rotten, so I wasn’t sure if it was really a bird, but if pigeons qualify as birds then this thing could be one too. I don’t judge. Except pigeons, I judge pigeons. Man, fuck pigeons.
Also I fixed the weird cintiq photoshop jitter thing (ended up rolling back to drivers 6.3.3).

More cintiq doodles.
I can’t tell if it’s photoshop or the wacom drivers, but really slow lines come out kind of jittery, and then there’s weirdness like the brush just going full pressure for no reason.

The dawn of the digital age. I am attempting to do my sketching on the cintiq with one of those pencil looking brush thingies, since my pencil sketches are nearly impossible to scan because I draw very light and use a 2h on top of that (I am a crazy person).
So yay! Fake pencil sketches!

Guillaume Blackburn - Archambault Generique from Pascal Blais Animation Studio on Vimeo.

Oh my! Here’s the ad I worked on last summer at Pascal Blais Studio. I think it came out alright. Bit of a shame about the vimeo compression, since the whole thing was designed to look all crisp and stuff, but I am told when it is on teevee, it is so sharp that people’s beards get sheared right off.

Layouts and tied down character animation by Guillaume Blackburn

Every other bit of animation, hand close ups, inbetweening, clean-up and enraged shouting at the computer (essential part of the process) by yours truly.

Good times!

This is what George RR Martin looks like when he writes those sex scenes.

I feel responsible for this. It is only fair I share it with everyone.
