Woah, just finished AM. It was a rough journey but my animation skills have certainly improved greatly. May not be top notch just yet, but the only direction to move is forward. I have retouches I want to make to some prior shots before I upload to vimeo, but it should be up within a week. Next phase: applying to places.

Also, woah!!!! Glen Keane left Disney?!?! It's sad news, but also exciting!!!! I dunno, I've heard several responses to the departure as devastating. As if there's only one terrible outcome that can befall such circumstance. No! Come on people, be optimistic! I can't wait to see how the change will effect both Disney's and his own future projects. Such possibilities!!!!!!

Anywho, figured I can't post without a drawing so I finally attempted copying Freddy's weird merle. He's all angry because we didn't go for a walk yet. I dunno, the face & paws, meh. I really liked how the shoulders turned out :P Oh, and figured I'd include a pic of the loveable mutt(from 4 years ago). Now, back to workin on the reel!!!!

Chades Challenge LXVIII: Renewed Frogs

Blimey! Uhhh, so for this one, drew from 2 direct inspirations. Any guesses? :D

I was having trouble thinking of an idea at first. For some reason renewed frogs didn't = zombies in my brain. However, once I saw Froggenstein, The Hopping Dead just clicked. I traced the title from a cover I grabbed on the "Hopp" is nowhere near on par with the rest(althoug....if I stood up those two Ps....maybe). Oooh, and since I'm still struggling with faces I ended up throwing in the Swedish Chef :p it made sense at the time. He hung out with Kermit so......zombie frogs, yeah!  Also, yeesh I stretched that torso!!!....or did I make space for the puppeteer? ahhhhhh :D........... I didn't :(

Chades Challenge LXVII Gluttonous Conquerors

I did another version of this a week or two ago but froze up before submitting. It wasn't good enough!!!! :P gotta let that way of thinking go, still/always learning.

Anywho! Uhh, I always wanted the player to be in the background in a silhouette but after ditching the original worms eye view I couldn't quite pull it off. So instead, tried for a super creepy mouth emerging from the darkness type thing......I need to work on lighting/ time!


Blast, so that rushed "gonna do 100 sketches in a week" thing didn't go over too well the other month. I did some but I froze up somewhere in there. Every once in a while I'll get on a role, but eventually I always end up freezing at some point. Gotta work on that.......anywho, was doing the twitter thing, and got inspired to do some quick sketches during lunch. Lynx sleeping, outlines of Fred doing his weird stretches when getting off a couch, him sleeping on his bed, and finally he turned into a deeper sleep. The nose feels a bit twisted at the end though :/

Also, here's a vid from the iPad app brushes. I was trying to sketch fred a while ago while he was sleeping but he kept tossing and turning.
