layout

practice.



not much to say...practicing with the lasso tool as well as a new photoshop brush.
i might make more of these...

and American Werewolf in London is overrated, but it's still pretty funny...Wolf with Jack Nickelson is better.

THINGS

pffff, i just posted this in the wrong blog....

anyways: found this from a day in Tegaki E, it is a skeleton.
this guy is both a procrastination and possibly monster/character development for RT
and this guy is from a lost folder. it was inspired by both the "tigermen" in Kite Runner, and also Kung Fu Panda.

and now....i should go food shopping, but Zoe and i need to settle some issues in Melee.

some things

yup, some ink gestures from class. i ruined another brushpen while i was doing them, does anyone know how to make a brushpen last just a little longer?? i mean, i'm not jamming it into the paper or anything, but i've only used it like...3 times so far and it's already getting little frays in the end

stupid brushpens...
hmm, these are some of the better warmups:
some failures that i find entertaining:
...batboy?
first drawings of the night... Mark the model is pretty creepy:
things done before class, a cat, a fat hitler-cat, a dragon fight, and a guy not unlike a Tomagochi:
and today i don't know what i'm doing....so i made this owl-Totoro thing here.
i don't even know what i'm doing today, i'm so sleepy...

Mystery owl

every time i look at this now, i want to make the fat one fatter or the medium one skinnier/shorter....and the tall one taller....
based on this guy:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Es52WQKLumI&feature=channel_page
so great...all the japanese stuff going on is hilarious too.

back to resumes!!!!!
sooooo i'm gonna do a rocket film this year. it's going to be a 24/48/72 hour film staring Rocket, the most loved canine in the Character Animation department. here are some character designs:
and here is a truly touching and inspiratin shot from the My Little Pony movie, of which i highly recomend watching the last 5 minutes of:
and after that, watch some carebear movies as well.

Pods...

so my roommates were walking Rocket one day, and they came back with this guy:
a giant plant/pod of some kind. we've had it and have been joking about it for weeks, but then sometime during the last few hours, it did something shocking:
and now, Zoe is acting funny....we're not sure what to do...

other than that, life is grand! i'm planning a short animatic featuring Rocket!

Dragons are great.

took another break. experimented alittle.
was feeling entirely iffy on this until i put on the spots. the spots made it worth the time spent for me.

Stylish Board

for that one animation contest thing-if i get time definitely going to greytone it.
taking a break.

it's much easier to draw now, i can make a straight line on the first try. it's crazy!

also finished the Antena walks, i am very happy with those. even with the super cheap Boombox cheat-fest:


going to bed early now...

Bamboo Fun Times!

i got my Bamboo today! oooh boy!! it's sooooo nice!! it has a paper-texture and everything!!

*rubbing it in Graphire's face*

i mean yes the Graphire is great and incredibly portable....but it's so smaaall. plus i think the Bamboo's driver overrode the Graphire's, because it seems to have dissappeared...

ooooh, it's so awesome!!

now, i guess i'll pawn off the graphire or bury it somewhere close by, in case of emergency.
