Looking for something in particular?

This guy has been utter hell to design. But after several pages of crap and critiques, i think i hit some gold. This is Aaron. 

I've stated animating, even though the story in't entirely hammered out, but its getting there. Its lookin... pprreeetttyyy good (in my opinion. 

Enjoy the show.

The revolution is at hand

and by that, i mean my hand hurts from painting this propaganda.

this is for my film. Aaron, my main character, is part of the revolutionary party that is planning to overthrow the british rule in 1900s france. It takes place a year before the revolution started.

Thank you

Today is thanksgiving. It smells absolutely delicious down the hallway and I can't wait to gobble... gobble... gobble....

I'm actually eating duck this year instead of a turkey, and I won't complain. I feel bad for all the turkeys that butchered on this holiday, but so many animals get butchered regularly, poking accusations on just one day is unfair.

To all ye pilgrims out there, happy thanksgiving. Those who aren't... i'm very sorry.

Give thanks to all the wonderful things in our lives that we take for granted. I love my life, the wonderful people in it, my awesome family and the beautiful lady whom I can't wait to see later tonight (whom I hope can make it!)


Have a great thanksgiving and enjoy the shows (i.e. the Charlie Brown thanksgiving special. Popcorn on thanksgiving? Too good to be true.)

Hey there, PRILGRIM.....

Here is a character turn of a pilgrim I designed. I call him Petey Conwheel. He plots to kill his roommate, who is a talking turkey whom nobody in his town can see except for Petey.





Enjoy the show!

I PITCHED AT DREAMWORKS

and it was brutal. I pitched my film idea to dreamworks (strictly educational purposes, I made no money) and I got some real good feedback. I have a lot of faith in this project and iI feel it will work up to my expectations.

Here is a redesign of one of the characters from my film.
I went though a lot of designs to get to this one, as you can see. I like the effect of putting the sketches behind the finished design :)

Enjoy the show!

My dear friends...

I've realized something today... I do not make NEARLY as much blog posts as I should be. With all the crazy amounts of work I am doing, school, film and personal, it is downright ridiculous that I am not posting on a regular basis.

So I am setting up a challenge to myself. I need to make at least 1 blog post a week, be it anything from school, film, comic, stupid sketches, etc. I PLAN to keep this up, as it is important to me and I shall do that.. starting RIGHT NOWWWWWW!!!!!

This is a character exploration of the main character of my film, Aaron. His designs started very much uninterestingly and I decided to play with his design and make the character I felt he needed a spice and i think i found it... i'm not fond of his colors now that i think of it.

Enjoy the show!

Further Progress

I've been expanding the style and shading of my film a little further to other characters in the film:

Enjoy the show.

BREAKTHROUGH, perhaps?

AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Oh MY GOD!!!!! I'm digging through the muck and finding something I am LOVING!!! AAHHH.
Thanks babe!

Enjoy the show, I know I am. AAHHH

Whats your preference?

For my next film, this guy is my main character. I guess a little on his is that he was raised an orphan as his father abandoned him at a young age and the film follows his pursuit of his father... in a way...

So i'm trying to fight a visual style for this film. Both here have qualities that I absolutely love, but I can't decide which one I am more attracted to......

Friends, what do you like?

ps. Enjoy the show :)

MY TRIP TO CANADA

Hey der. 'Ows it goin, aye? Just a cupple o' weeks ago, I was in da great city ov Ottawa in Ontario Canada. I was der for the Ottawa International Animation Festival, in which I was volunteering. I freakin' love Canada, and the festival was really fun. I got to see a whole lot of really awesome films while I was there, and I made aboot 60 dollars worth of coins on teh street playin banjo. It was a hoot, aye. I spent most of my free time playing on the street, but when I got the chance, I did some drawings:









Yesterday was thanksgiving for the Canadians, so I wish you all a great one (or wish that you all HAD a great one) and enjoy the show (as I am sure there are several going on at least at this particular moment).

WALK CYCLE!!!

I haven't animated since the beginning of the summer..... I must admit, I missed it. So, here is a walk cycle I did for my 2D animation class. It's goofy as hell, but I had a lot of fun doing it.

Also, I shot this on my webcam at the only angle I was able to capture it in, so the image is a tad distorted. Deal....

Enjoy the show!!! :) Its due at 7:00 pm today.
