Merry Christmas~

A little late for Christmas, but I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

This is our 3 week group project. It was a lot of fun to work on! Courtesy of Mike Jones, Carlyle Wilson, Jess Hilliam, Courtney Pearson, Josh Pan and I.

Extreme 3D!

A group environment project where we all modeled and textured objects, but had to individually light our own scene.

Was lazy last week. Thanksgiving holiday yay!
Here's an image where I was trying out a different method of painting on a quick head sketch. Needs more work, will try painting something similar again.

Bam, kick it up a notch.

All of the paintings so far have been studies off of photo references.

Originally, I wanted to do a small painting everyday, but I'm not sure that'll work out with school, and homework. So I'm aiming for a few each week.
At the moment these are taking me around an hour. I'm hoping as time goes, I'll get faster and better.
If I work off a reference, such as a photo or painting, I'll post that too.

Student Short 2009, Monster at Work

I haven't posted my student short from last year, "Monster at Work", because I entered into the Ottawa International Animation Festival. Unfortunately, it didn't get in, but I'm not surprised considering the huge amount of entries this year!

Out of sheer luck though, it got drawn to be shown in Salon de Refuses, a screening/party at OIAF that showcases some of OIAFS rejects. I think that's quite nice, haha.

The party has passed, so I think it's okay to post now. Monster at Work! Hope you like it.

This summer I worked at Angiotech doing illustration and animation work on their company beliefs for their employees. I liked that their number one priority is helping patients (not $$$). It was a good experience; I liked the company and the project I was working on, and that's not something that's always easy to find.

I also did a short animation as well. Soon to come!

Capilano student union handbook

This is for the Capilano Union student member handbook and day planner for the upcoming school year 2009/2010. The image was inspired by the beautiful forestry our school is surrounded in. To my advantage, there is always a lack of participation in the Capilano agenda cover contest. I actually use this agenda by the way, very good for organizing.

Lillian Lai's Portfolio

There's some new work that I haven't posted on my blog in my portfolio. I don't have much else to are two new layouts I've done for the beginning of my Monster At Work short.
