Caravaggio Study by elipse
Caravaggio Study
I saw this technique of studying where you take a master painting, up the threshold so the shapes are abstract yet still resemble a face, flip the image upside down, and draw that. The purpose of this is to teach you to see things as abstract shapes. If you do this with the image right side up, you'll get caught up in drawing what you think an eye or mouth or whatever should look like instead of drawing the shape that's there. It was really interesting. I'd like to do more of these over the following days.

In My Shell by elipse
In My Shell
I've been trying to think of ways to portray the many, many defensive walls that I live behind and came up with this idea over the holiday break. My mother was doing something with my hair when I saw an image of the two of us with this metal bubble-like structure between us. The structure had plates with could move out of the way to allow people/objects/whatever to interact directly with me while maintaining the rest of the defensive wall. This is how I imagined that structure to be as I sat on the plane for the way too long flight back to Vancouver.

Hey guys,
Check out the trailer for the film I finished working on a couple of months ago! The Little Prince is one of the most sincere and heart felt movies I've ever had the privilege of working on. I really hope it does well!

Hey I really like your work. I'd like to get into animation, but it's too hard, lol.
elipse Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Thanks! It definitely isn't easy and requires a lot of time and effort. But if you really want to be an animator, there's no reason to let the difficulty of the process stop you. ^_^
