Having an Akira comic book by the bed makes me want to draw more.

Skratchjams Zootopia Padderoon
Participating in  :iconskratchjams:  for first time!

We had to make a character representing ourselves in a Zootopia style.
I though of myself more like a Capybara but a colleague said I was more like a raccoon.  So weird conversations aside, here's my contribution!
Fakeboard by Padder
Hi there!  Nothing fancy here : just a fake storyboard to show you how I sort of draw everyday there.  Seriously when I started doing cut scenes a little more than a year ago I couldn't draw realistic-ish faces; they were still very cartoony or manga-influence.  I'm still not out of that situation quite yet but there has definitely been an improvement.  The staff seem to expect images closer to the real stuff so it really motivated me to push my limits forward bit by bit.  Nothing is going on in this board, just talking heads for fun.
Weirdbigdrawings by Padder
Bored like crazy on Sunday.  Here's a bunch of HB pencil lines on a large piece of paper. Randomness.  No references but that face on the right would have benefited from it.
Hey there!

Just moved in my appartment! (2 weeks ago)  Still in boxes as I had to paint walls and other tasks first.

I think I'll like it here!

Going through my older stuff I get the feeling I had my best art run between 2004-2006 in that the characters I drew were lively and cool. But lately I improved a lot more with colors and more human-like faces, to a point I barely draw "anime-like" characters (though I still do).

Next I'd probably want to focus on torsos and compositions. Although I can structure an image in a way that makes sense and has an effect, I'm still not doing arrangements that are strikingly beautiful.

Can't set up A/C... it's freaking hot in here.  Still don't have the net xcept for cellphone.  Gonna have to set up the pc soon.  Buy curtains and couch.  Might paint the kitchen wall after all.  Still haven't made vacation plans.  Drinking beer way too often.
Yup, that pretty much sums up where I'm at since the move
  Hope to draw and share soon!

I'm a storyboard artist with 2D animation skills (and college degree) and with a childhood dream of doing comics. Currently I do storyboards for video games aiming for excellence in visual storytelling while also doing other tasks helping people have a clearer picture of all the hazy confusion there is when starting a project and through milestones. I hope to storyboard on big movies someday and maybe release a self-made comic book or two in the future.

Current job : Storyboard Artist at Eidos Montréal - Square Enix
Current Residence: Canada (Montreal,Quebec)
