Merry Christmas

I did three Christmas drawings, and I liked this one the best and then I realized the proportions of these characters are difficult. So if you think the proportions are weird on these drawings, just watch the show. They always look weird and off model, but it's still a kick ass show. So enjoy and Merry Christmas, thanks for stopping by. Oh yeah before I forget, LAKERS!!!

LMU Animators

I was going to post this on the LMU Animators blog, yes a blog filled with LMU animation artwork and you should check it out because there's going to be a lot of cool artwork on there. So for now I'll post the image on here. I haven't sketched this character in a long time, but this is big headed character I drew up for my sophomore animated film.

Two for One

Another thesis screenshot. Two post in one day.

Thesis Snippet

So you guys out there can get an idea of what I've been working on since August, I have posted a little snippet of my senior thesis animatic. This whole thesis is an experimental project made so I can finally put something in my portfolio and to take everything I've learned and watched and execute it the best way I can.

I bet you can recognize where the temp music is from, but I will say I'm in negotiations with Taiko drum team on campus to provide the score because after hearing them play I was like OHHH Shit I need that to amp up the film. The only problem is going to be recording them without breaking a few microphones.

In any case the backgrounds are temporary and for one of the sequences the BG used is just there to give me an idea of composition and to practice a cam shake. A lot of my friends have been giving me shit for this animatic, but this is how I do animatics. I have been giving myself a lot of shit for doing a sword fight, I love hand to hand and I have way more fun boarding hand to hand, so I have no idea why the hell I decided to throw in swords.

Motivation in Color

KABLAM here's the colored version. This design has some minor tweeks in it than the previous. What's interesting about her design is that some people kept mistaking her for a guy when looking at the storyboards for the thesis, but if your going to be running around wielding a sword, best believe your going to have some huge triceps and deltoids.

After seeing Bustamante's drawings of my thesis characters I got motivated and inspired to sketch my own characters. I finished these doodles on Friday, but for some odd reason anything Google related on campus was in Korean and I can't read Korean so I didn't upload these images. Peep her page and check out the renditions of the thieves from my thesis.

Yup I'll pretty much draw on whatever I can get my hands on. They say don't draw on napkins, but I'm dumb enough to draw on a brown paper bag.
