Showing Off

I got permission to show off what I've done for work!  I didn't want to get into trouble by showing images that I shouldn't be so I haven't posted anything, ever, I've done for work.  So this is what I mainly do for a living:  SLOTS!  

This is the latest one I've finished called "Galaxy Cafe".  The title is animated, parts of the background are animated, all of the icons are animated and here a few of my favourites:

For each game I also have to create 2 Bonus Game which you get to by fulfilling certain gameplay requirements, like having a certain icon show up or having a group of icons all line up in the same row.  For this game, one is called Burger Buck! where you pick burgers on a grill to earn credits.  The robot is animated flinging his arms around excitedly when you win something.  The fries also boil in the frier.

The second Bonus Game is called "Cosmic Desserts".  You pick one dessert from each row to win credits.  The jello changes colours, the pudding rolls back and forth in the bowl, the pie opens up to show a pair of winking eyes and a lots more goes on too.

There's a Mystery UFO that sometimes shows up to change an icon so you can win.  I'm really happy with how it turned out!  This is the kind of gif I send to the programmers so they know how this are supposed to look.  Click on it to see it animate.

This is just a fraction of what I created for this particular game.  I'm planning on posting more of my work soon.

Another show that surprises me each season, this one especially.  Just when it looked like they couldn't do anything fresh, they come up with another inventive storyline.  And the last 10 minutes of each episode this season has had me totally on the edge of my seat.  Such great cliffhangers!  I have my theories with Ellie and her dad's computer but I'm not going to say anything in case I jinx things.

Boy, I sure watch a lot of tv.

Walk to Fight Arthritis

I'm going to be walking in the Walk to Fight Arthritis this May 15th and I thought I'd see if I could raise some extra money for our team.  You can read more about it HERE.

For a $10 donation, I'll draw you a sketch of anything you want.  Cool?

Just donate HERE and email me at leigh @ leigh young .com a copy of your confirmation email with a description of what you'd like a sketch of.

I'll complete each sketch in the order that I get emails.

I'll keep these commissions open until May 15, that's the day of the walk.

So, don't make me look like an idiot by having no one donate for me.

It's Always Sunny

In Philadelphia.

I was once asked who I would go on a date with if I HAD to pick between Charlie, Dennis or Mac.  I picked Charlie.  He might smell a bit but I think he'd be more concerned with trying to impress me than with trying to bang me.  Or kill me (ie. Dennis is a closet psychopathic murderer).  Besides, he could just spend the evening showing me his Kitten Mittens and I'd be happy.

I don't know how they did it, but they managed to make another interesting season of the show.  They really could have just ended after last year's finale (I won't spoil it for anyone) and I would have been sad but satisfied.  I'm glad it didn't end though.  I would miss Dean's "Son of a bitch"s and the clenching and unclenching of Sam's jaws.

Peaches and The Firecracker

This is a commission for The Malamondos.  It's to do with a song on their new album.  I'm thinking it will end up on stickers and maybe a t-shirt, but that's up to the band.  Therefore, the image belongs to me AND them.  So if you steal from me you're also stealing from them.  And you don't want them mad at you like that.

Boy, it's been ages since I drew a luchador.  What a phase that was, way back then, years and years and years ago.  Yeesh.


Fringe!  I love this show.  I especially love the relationship between Walter and Astrid and all the names he calls her because he just can't get it right.  It's so sad in the alternate universe they really have no contact with each other at all.

I wonder what show I'll do next...?

Started as an attempt at something "Sucker Punch" lookin' but ended up a mad cowgirl.  I use this great costume site for anything cowboy or victorian when I need an idea for clothing.
