Film colourscript? Actually it's just all the backgrounds

Hello! Just gonna casually drop the bgs from my film ARTBLOCK here.... And yes, there are reuses! Just so you all can see the progression of my film's story! I somehow didn't do much of a colorscript... (regretted skipping that step...) Just went straight into painting it all! : D 

I'm thinking of updating this website soon, maybe change it to tumblr or something, not sure! I've been using tumblr way more than blogger these days, find me at for all the stuff you haven't found here! (Except maybe this post haha)

Oh So Soon!


Thumbnails of new concept ideas!

Film is officially done!! It's been an amazing four years. Even though for at two of the four I REALLY didn't want to go to school. It's kind of nostalgic already now, just walking through the halls one last time. The smell of sweaty hallways, metal lockers, old paper, and uh, the sticky cintiq screens... brings me back to when I first entered these doors and thrown literally into a world of art. My first year self would have thought that it wasn't possible for me to create concepts and even think of a story for my own film let alone direct and produce one all by myself. (The same person who in grade 8 thought animations were literally made by computer coding- doh.)

If anything, I have learned that what ever you thought was impossible, it MUST be possible. There must be a WAY to do something. In terms of art anyways. haha -try to throw me some science!

I also learned to really like animating after all, I wanted to draw anime in high school so it would make sense right? Except now, I also really enjoy concept art too! And 3D! So it's slightly conflicting that way, I guess I would consider myself a generalist, I wanna do it all! Just to create is my pleasure. Including the pinterest DIY stuff haha.

I was asked for advice a few times by prospective first years. And so I said:

"I've found the program to only be as good as how dedicated to art you are. It's not the kind of program you go into thinking the teachers are going to give you the talent. They give you some basics, and how far you decide to take your projects is up to you. I found that although I learned from the teacher's a fair amount, I learned FAR MORE from my peers who are also passionately involved in art making."

Thank you so much to everyone that has helped me, encouraged me, and all that teary-eyed nostalgic-ness!  I will miss these carefree years, it was TOO quick! I feel like I blinked my eyes and then it was fourth year. Albeit that the last time I had my eyes open I was a lot less ache-y and tired! haha definitely feeling older!

Now I face the world beyond school!! I'm excited and nervous at the same time! WOOHOOOO QwQ

...And don't forget to eat your fruits and veggies!

A sneak peek for my film in progress, ARTBLOCK. This was a scene test we did a while back, so this isn't the fully finalized scene, gotta fix the timing and what not in the final final version~

What is my film about? Take a guess! hehe

Harder Better Faster Stronger

These are a collection of studies I did in January in between rough animating and painting layouts, I'm trying to be more efficient at painting, and learn better colour and light theory, it's just so hard!! >.<;

I added a new archive link to the left, you guys will probably see new updates to my blog layout regularly hehe ^^;


I've always wanted to have my own Vespa, they're so fun to ride! One day, one day....
