I started that drawing when we had the day off because hurricane Isaac came close to Florida. I Just finished it this week, now that I have quite of bit of spare time. I would like to dedicate it to the wonderful Tembo crew and other DDMG employees. Again, it was a pleasure to work with everyone of you.


Gnomeo Plants Reel

Most of my work being still unavailable for demo reels, I decided to at least put together some work that I did when I was in the garden department on Gnomeo. I textured everything in the turntables and all the foliage elements in the shots.


Oil Painting Classes

In January, I finally started something I wanted to do for a while : taking painting classes. Other than some water color classes when I was a lot younger, I never really learned how to use traditional medium like oil paint.
The class is at George Brown College on Sundays and here's my first "completed" painting.
(I am not counting the very first painting that I never really finished since I missed a class when I was snowboarding for a weekend at Blue Mountain.)

So, considering that I didn't choose the subject, I didn't place the objects to make a pretty composition and I had 3 classes to do the full painting (a total of about 9 hours) I'm pretty happy with the result.
Hopefully the next ones are going to be way better, but : YAY! FIRST PAINTING! :D


Toonbox and Dell

There's a video that talks about Toonbox... and the dell equipment we're using. We can see images from the teaser we did last spring in the background. I textured the two robbers and the cop. Enjoy!



Had a bit of free time.... ;)


Ok.... now I'm starting to get Zbrush, hehe. :)

But still so many functionalities to discover.... ;)


Other small projects I worked on...

Here a few images from projects I worked on at Starz Animation Toronto (Now known as Arc Productions). You can go on their website to know more about those productions.


These images are from a short called "Snack Attack" I textured the Granny, did her hair and textured most of the sets.

And this one is from a Starz Shortz production called "Lovebirds". I Textured and did the fur on the big bird (the one showing his muscles ;)) and I did the flowers and foliage integrated to the live action plate.


A few stills from Gnomeo and Juliet are now available at this link :


I did those dead dandelions that Featherstone is blowing.

I textured the leaf bushes behind Gnomeo and Juliet as well as the branch they walk on in the second frame. It doesn't seem like they rendered the branch with the displacement, but oh well...

And I also did the wisteria tree... this is the destroyed version.


Gnomeo and Juliet trailer!!!!

So.... I've worked on this for about a year and a half.... did tons and tons of plants surfacing as you can see in the trailer... hehe
I think it looks awesome! Good job everyone who worked on it!


The Bromeo Crew

A caricature I did for a work contest that never happened, hehe. So Freddy, Zack and Allanlee are the Bromeo Crew. ;)
