30 Day Drawing Challenge back soon...

Ive had to pause on my 30 day drawing challenge due to having a birthday weekend with my boyfriend (we turned 32...old!) and the week nights after work being filled with stuff away from home and packing up to move. I'll be back with Day 5 very soon, I promise! This post will be replaced with a scribble.

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 4 : A Famous Character Had They Aged : He-Man

Day 4: He-man/Prince Adam from Masters Of The Universe (1987)

One of my most vivid memories of going to the cinema as a kid was to see MOTU with Dolph Lundgren...I liked it back then, but now the movie poster is better than the film. I'm curious to see what the new film will end up like...and WHO will play He-Man?!

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 3 : Scary Movie : Scream

Day 3: Scream (1996)

This was THE horror film from my teen years, therefore it is one of my favourites. The start is so memorable and just hits you in the face with the horror that is Ghostface. Downside is this lead to the inspiration of endless Scary Movie films.

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 2 : Super Minimalist Movie Poster : Watership Down

Day 2: Watership Down (1978)

One of favourite top five animated films.

My mum taped this on VHS and always says she never erased it because she knew that as I re-watched it I would understand and enjoy it more. She was right. As a little kid I saw rabbits on an adventure with weird things going on, then when I was older I understood the actual plot more and more.

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 1 : Animated Movie : The Emperor's New Groove

I have been meaning to do one of these 30 day drawing challenges for a while, but never had the time. Since I am working full time, it's the perfect way to get me drawing for a few hours after work everyday...and how can I refuse a movie version (created by the very cool & talented illustrator Jeff Victor).

Here is my Day 1 : The Emperor's New Groove (2000)

By the way, I had to paint this twice. The first time I had almost finished and my computer crashed on my save, corrupting the file.

Supanova 2013

  
This weekend I headed to Supanova 2013 in Melbourne as Wonder Woman and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (film version) with Ben as Captain Cold, Marta as Batgirl and Jenn as the new video game Lara Croft.

I had a great time, talked to some wonderful cosplayers, shook hands and spoke to David Hasselhoff (he also high-kicked and play punched towards me), asked Eliza Dushku (Faith of Buffy) a question and she said I was bad-ass in my Tomb Raider gear AND talked to Ray Park (Darth Maul) who yet again was a really nice guy. Last time I chatted to him was back in 2005.

BTW, David Hasselhoff is an awesome speaker! He is very entertaining and spends so much time with everyone, hard working dude!

Also, Ray Park STILL has the Darth Maul double lightsaber moves!

 Free Avengers and X-Men pinball!

News!

I've started a new educational book job for Pearson Books Australia, which is very exciting as I haven't illustrated a book since late 2010! I had an offer last year but I just wasn't free because of the pilot. This will run up till my trip to L.A. where I'm heading for Comic Con (whoo!)

Unfortunately I didn't get a really cool job, which was to create character art for a US channel TV series' web game, a show I'm a huge fan of. The San Fransisco agency who pitched my work to the network agency, found my fan art on the net and tracked me down...so at least they now know I exist (yay internet!) But the network decided to go with the other style pitched (along with mine).

Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

I'm also trying to finish off updating my NEW website and folio...also going to send that off to some local agents for future opportunities.

Here is a sketch I'm working on for the Comic-Con 2013 Souvenir Book...need to finish it and submit it soon!


Update! Here is my finished entry...I took the "Uno!" away in case I get disqualified for copyright of other companies.
