Working on a new room. This is an example of a forward gun. One part i like its that the different rooms are stages of the firing process- so the command to fire goes to the loading room, to the firing guys. should be cool to see in full animated pixel glory. right now the rooms R pink btu will be populated once everything is i place.

Hey Guys,

here are the few development shots of a space room. We are going for a arcadey look to the whloe thing and invoking a pixel size so we can draw 1:1 pixels. It is super old=-school fun.

here is a screen grab of the animation sequence I am currently cranking out.

so here is the goal: get everything up to this point ready to go ASAP and not add any new scenes. Then i can actually release something from this cartoon that has been taking up SO MUCH of the last year :-)

I am excited to have finally gotten a good hold on this whole animation thing- and am super excited about the future.

Veterans Day

Thank you so much to the armed services of the USA for kicking some ass, and not putting up with dictators, bullies, fundamentalists and other stupid idiots that are so numerous in our world.

stay tuned for some movies!

its a fun time just testing styles and different ways to draw a space game... during it I have to winder if I could do this for 32 rooms-and also what effects can be applied to the coloring method i am using.

Space Game Anyone?

So if you've been floowing this blog, or look way back, you might see a background for a space game. Ths cope of the game hasn't changed much, but new indie games have been very inspiring. Indy games have been picking up a lot of steam and Jordan and I have always had an idea to do this space game... so we are going to make a reel to look like what the game would play like.

here is the initial BG before coloring and lighting.... (the coloring is for separation only, and I then go back in and replace it with real colors...

Hey everyone,

here is a link to what i've been working on. I will have a more thorough post asap, but I am moving into a new place so it's been a challenge to update. stay tuned.

Friday, June 19, 2009

So i finished work on page 6 of the comic as you can see above. PHEW. it was a long one. One important thing artists struggle with is having the courage to make art. he reason I use the word ;courage' is because there is an internal struggle with confidence and fear. What if this one looks horrible? What if it is stupid? What if I am a sham? I should do it when I am more energetic...or less tired... or in a better mindset.

then you finally sit down and it all comes natural. You make some bad ones- but your mind takes over as soon as you put pen to paper and the rest is just amazing.

My brother and I finished work on the commcercial I mentioned, we are making final edits and I will have a version of it up really soon.

Stay Tuned For:

A new blog CSS?!!!
A short preview of my perosnal cartoon
A full-length cartoon commercial.
a new Cartoon Background.

Monday, June 01, 2009

This page has bee monstrous, but for more reason that i have two other projects going on and one of which I am actually getting paid for (so it has priority.


Stay tuned for:

Finished Background

Hey guys, just wrapped up another background for the cartoon. I like the reflections in the rivers for sure, just a fun effect to mimic. Things aren't too peace for long- as the train has a roadblock up ahead and that's when things get hairy...

Tuesday, May 19, 2009


two cartoons are both being worked on so that has been taking up the majority of my time. I am going to put a new cut together this week so you guys can see how its coming along in full motion. It is look fantastic.

here are the paintings from last week slowly coming along.

Sunday, May 10, 2009


not a new one- but I found a charger YAY.

Here is a page im painting from the comic and a background for the cartoon. One is night and one is day.

Work continues on the cartoon at a decent pace. I have scenes 1-5 colored and drawn for a total of about a minute...

I also found some potential music off of a cd, and the lats 1 minute of a song was a really melodic cello solo. Ill post something later this week.

Im also doing a freelance cartoon- I'm excited about that, and also getting it done. We (my brother Jordan and I) have storyboards and an animatics done for it so now is the fun part, animating it. The cartoon is 2 minutes and the turnaorund is 6 weeks and this is only possible because it is 99% lineart, black and white. I put a jpeg here so you know whats coming...

PAGE 5!!!!!

Well they take a long time to get right- but really my job has been whats slowing everything down- it has gotten to be ridiculous. SUPER long hours.

ANYWHOO- the page is done and looks great- honestly looks so much better in person. Colors are super-vivid and the paper is just awesome. Big difference in this page has been using the nice brushes and completing each scene panel by panel. Getting the lighting right in the last panel was really hard. But overall the piece shows a nice transition form day to night. I get to do some cool interior scenes soon- can't wait.

So it took a lot longer than I had imagined but the inking for page 5 is done. Work continues on the cartoon but really at this point it feels like my '9-5' (9-9) s taking up far too much of my time- it is a challenge to try and be creative when you work long hours-- and for what? A bunch of money?

Tuesday, March 03, 2009
