Evil Scientist

Ah, the final model sheet for my Evil Scientist character, named after a really mean teacher from elementary school. I thought it was pretty good, but then I went to the screening of the 4th year Leica Reels for their final films, one of which was about an evil scientist, and his design was much better. My favorite Leica Reel of them all was called "A Peach for the Teach." It was a simple story about a peach and an apple fighting for a teacher's attention. So simple, but it was so cute and so funny and the characters were so well defined (even though they were just fruit), and the ending was perfect. I hope she doesn't change anything between now and the end of the school year. It was pretty much flawless. I can't remember the creator's name though...


Here are some bone drawings for my Life Drawing class. A noticeable improvement over the not-so-good hands and feet. The teach thought so too.

Small Winged Angel

And finally, the finished expressions/action poses for the Small Winged Angel character. This was my first attempt at cleanup using Photoshop. I think the expressions turned out okay, but the lines are somewhat unclear in the poses. This is probably the last you'll see of her for a while. I'm starting on my next design: an evil scientist. I love evil scientists.

C+ Hands and Feet

Here are some more hands and feet. I tried using crosshatching to shade them, but according to the Prof, I need to show more form with it. C+ XD. Oh well, there's always next time.

So much homework

Uggh. Soooo muuchhh hoommmeee woorrkk. But I just got 600 bones from a bursary I applied to, so, it's all good. Amazing what filling out a couple forms can do.

Anyway, this is a Disney-esque leading lady type character. I'm thinking of a story for her, but I don't have time to put serious thought into it yet. I'm stil not satisfied with it, but it'll have to do for now. Also, some guoache paintings of skies/clouds. Didn't scan too well.

Ah, finally finished my first animation assignment! I had a little free time this weekend, so I did some hand and feet drawings from an extra-life model. I'll have to do 12 of each in two weeks for Life Drawing class, so this was a usefull practice.

Rough Character Designs

Here is a character design I've been working on. It's going to be a sumo wrestler. Sorry if they're hard to see. Most of my rough sketches are in Col Erase pencils which don't scan too well. I could clean them up with graphite, but that would take effort. I'll try and get something of a better quality uploaded from now on, but I'm a little busy with school work right now.

First Time Posting

Greetings. My name is Adam Pockaj, I am in my first year of the Bachelor of Applied Arts (Animation) program at Sheridan College, and this is my first art blog. I've got to go to Extra Life Drawing right now, but hopefully I'll begin posting some of my artwork in the coming days. Cheers!
