GHASTLY TRANSMISSION SHOT ONE

Finished a shot! Had to redo it a few times, but I'm super happy with the results. Hope my director feels the same way!

MIST AND RAIN ANIMATED

DUDE! So my buddy Duong just worked some badass AE magic all over my background. CHECK IT OUT!

MIST AND RAIN

Been a while since I painted a background. Almost got a mentorship with Mike Yamada (concept artist for Kung Fu Panda 2 and How to Train your Dragon). I was in the top ten, but didn't get it. Oh well, gotta push on! If any talented background artist would like to grace me with some tips, I'm all ears!

In the meantime, here is a view from my window slightly romanticized

GHASTLY TRANSMISSION CHARACTER DESIGNS

I got picked up by the ever so wonderful Robot Hand production company to do a bit of creature animation for them. I won't disclose much more, but the final designs are done, rough animation is well underway, and I finished sculpting the maquette of his head!

I apologize for the poor picture quality, I only have web cam and poor lighting at the moment.

OGRE AND THE MERMAID

My former animation teacher, Chris Magee, is finally making his long awaited short: the Ogre and the Mermaid (or is it the Mermaid and the Ogre?) In any case, I'm excited to be part of it! I had a freak bout of inspiration today, and rather than work on what I'm supposed to be working on, I decided to jump the gun and attempt to do a background in his style. For some reason I decided I wanted it to move too :p

SEAGULL PENCIL TEST II

Finished another shot of the seagull! I have a kickass assistant working with us this time, so I am able to pass shots along to him to finish inbetweening and to color. In the blank space on the seagull here, please imagine a musical score (it was shot in live action and we'll combine them in post)

FLIPNOTE GESTURE DRAWINGS


Lets see how this "resolution" thing works out for me....Starting the year off with some gesture drawings! The first is a main painting a mural, the second is a friend playing with legos
