I've been so busy with projects recently that I keep forgetting to post this. I'll be teaching a workshop along with some legendary artists, in Vancouver in January. I'll be melding some of the stuff from my Schoolism classes together and adding some new things I've been learning into a workshop on how light can be used to tell story. Of course my demo will be painting, but the ideas will apply to any discipline that fuses value, color, and composition. I can promise that the other artists will make it worth coming, and I'll do my best to add something useful to the mix. My guess is that tickets will sell fast, so don't wait too long to sign up if you plan on coming.

I decided to paint this drawing as a demonstration for my second Schoolism lighting class. One of the biggest difficulties of lighting (and painting in general) is deciding when you are done. I think I spent another 6 hours on it after the class demonstration, adjusting the colors and values to make the lighting pop more, and it's still not feeling like I want it to. So I'm not officially calling this one done yet: I may come back and George Lucas it later.

I just realized that in my crazy schedule the last month, I never took the time to announce officially my change in jobs. I decided to leave Disney and teach at BYU full-time. This semester they have me teaching digital painting for animation, character design, and gesture drawing. BYU has a great animation program and the students are very talented so I'm excited to see what kinds of things we can do there.

I have no idea if the students are getting anything out of my character design class but at least I've been having fun doing the assignments with them. This assignment was to design a monster that was both scary and had a personality. This idea was based on the criteria we had on an unreleased project I worked on at Disney/Avalanche several years back.

I almost forgot to post this and the last date is approaching fast. My apologies to the few of you who were asking when there would be a sale again.

that means you probably invented it (for 2d). A clever adaptation of a 3d technique.
