Not on the web now.  Moving in real life.  I tend to move every three years (with the occasional 1 years here and there in between).  I'm moving alone this time.  Not sure how that will be, but I expect positive things.  Roommates are occasionally fun and does bring some liveliness in a place, but it's also a hindrance on many levels.  I tend to isolate myself a little sometimes but I still do enjoy having company around.  I'm excited to see how being the only boss of my place will be like.

Now let's recapitulate these first 3 months of the year already:

-Still didn't scan my sketchbook(s) to share with you all.  Will I ever think about it when I have free time??
-I did keep to my idea of doing at least one fanart per week.  We're at Week 3 now....and that Jedi drawing really shouldn't count.  I'm running late for last week...
-Haven't started any comic books/panels yet.  Ideas come and go and then they stay away whenever I sit down with the intent to do a comic book.  I'll need to schedule myself a specific time to sit down and do nothing else but focus on doing a comic book, whether I have ideas or not, even if it bores me to death.  Now I've noticed one problem with that is : I enjoy doing comics on paper.  Less so on a tablet.  My process these days is purely digital...so maybe I'll have to convince myself to hook up my scanner, scan that sketchbook, and scan those comic pages (often in two passes that I then have to realign and clean in Photoshop . . .)
-I am slightly more active.  It's slowly happening.  Hey I even made...urrr...30 minutes exercise (and was sore for 2 days!!!? O_o) But it's happening. But seriously : Winters suck.  Fuck snow.  Fuck early sunsets.
-Still single.  4 years straight.  It's starting to worry me.
-So yeah!  Moving!  In 4 months!  In Quebec, especially Montreal, for some reason everyone moves on the 1st of July.  So you have to do everything in a single day or even less.  But the real problem is that moving and truck rental companies jack up their prices during that period, often more than double their regular rate.  That's the next headache I'll have to deal with :  reserving months in advance, maybe have to forego movers like I thought of doing and yet again ask for friends' help. Aaaaaaarg  Then it's the address-change game and this time I'll have to buy some new furniture and appliances.  Frugal year ahead?

So overall it's good.  Still need to stop dragging my feet in molasses but things seem to be looking up : )

Enough about me.
Back to work.

Sketchbook Bonanza 2015 part 1 by Padder
Sketchbook Bonanza 2015 part 1
Hey there!  Here's a bunch of sketches from my last sketchbook that I begun drawing in around August 2015 (and still going on).
I think there's also another sketchbook before that I didn't share.  I might look into that.  So I'll have a few of those coming in the following days.  They're all going to appear chronologically. Enjoy!

At first and for most of the time working on it, I didn't like it, like it lacked the sketchy vivacity I like to do. But I sort of like how it turned out.  It's different.  Now, those legs should be about 3 times longer though!!

I am a storyboard artist with 2D animation skills (and college degree) and with a childhood dream of doing comics. I seem to be too lazy to reach those stars (plus I hear the pay just sucks) so I do storyboards for video games aiming for excellence in visual storytelling , and other tasks helping people SEE the fuzzy thoughts they have in their minds. Hoping to storyboard big movies someday.

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

Wow! Your art is totally incredible! I saw one of your animations(which i Favorited) and it was done with Sketchbook pro 7.  Do you use this for all of your drawings? IF SO... would you recommend sketchbook pro7? I am looking for a drawing program bc I just bought a tablet.  Thank you so much!!!!!!Heart Dance - NaNo28

Thanks!  Yes I used Sketchbook Pro a lot these past few years, including work.  It's inexpensive and feels more natural to use.  Not as fully featured as Photoshop , but Photoshop costs in the hundreds.  Have fun with your tablet!
