distressed-robot-sounds asked: aaa i was wondering if you went to an art school for animation, if so which one? im super interested in animation and i'm curious about which schools are the best. also i've been following you for ages,,,i super admire your art omg

jagzilla:

I did, actually! I went to a french college called Cégep du Vieux Montréal, where they have both a 2D animation and 3D animation program, taught by, well, animation veterans, really. I know a lot of animation programs in the Montreal area are either mediocre or have very little content or lack the support I feel an animation student requires, but this one I went to is a very, very intense 3 years long program that covers everything from concepts to puppet animation, going through traditional animation and a ton of exercises.

You leave the college program with your own animated short. Also, it’s worth mentioning that at this college, your animated short can only be done entirely by you, except for music. You may team up at Gobelins, and I think Sheridan too, but at Vieux Montréal, not a soul can help you draw, paint or animate. Teachers are there to guide you but it’s a very tough experience (BUT FUN I SWEAR)(albeit stressful).

I think it was obvious in my first sentence, but I will reiterate just in case; the program is french. There is no english branch! I would attend again if I could, though. I feel like I don’t remember enough from the classes, gah.

I hope this helped!! ;v;

My friend showed me this site where you have 45 seconds to draw a pokemon but sometimes it takes like 20 seconds for the reference image to load in and let me tell you my artistic abilities have never shone brighter.

It was nice to meet some of you at SDCC. This craft-project would have bee useful at times during that humid span of days. I recommend printing out on sturdy stock!

JOTUN: LIVE ON KICKSTARTER!

In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must face the challenges of Viking purgatory to prove herself to the Gods and enter Valhalla.

I am proud to present to you the game I’ve been working on for the past few months: Jotun. Although the kickstarter has been doing very well without my help, I couldn’t just stand back and not let you guys in on the fun!

Working on this has been an absolute delight and has given be challenges to boot. From first concept sketches to final designs, working with William Dubé has been one smooth ride and very educative. Reading up on Norse mythology and adapting the legends to a style that would be proper to the game has been fun and creatively enchanting, to say the least!

I couldn’t talk about the creative process without mentioning how exciting it has been to watch my designs go from flat to animated, by the amazing Alexandre Boyer, my gosh!


just look at her go..! eeeee

The other crazy skilled 2D artists who have made this project come to life are Annejulie PDarnell Lysius-Dicette and Marianne Vincent. Definitely check them out, you will not be disappointed!

Please check the Kickstarter page if you have a few minutes to spare and if 2D games strike your fancy, and pledge for awesome rewards! :D If you can’t pledge, that’s totes cool, but please consider sharing this so that your friends & followers can see this!

Thank you for your interest, and I hope to see you all through the adventure!
