Well I finished drawing all of the Titans Kristina. This is a very late entry for a draw off submission that had a cookie theme. As you can probably tell all the previous post were part of this one. So Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and Happy Festivus.

Well here's a snippet of what I finished animating during my senior year. This animated short is 25.16 GB so to compress this thing for the internet is a pain because it distorts the aspect ratio and the overall quality of the product, since I'm not putting this on youtube. I originally did not want to post this online, but I changed my mind...for now. I cringe at the site of this, I want to redraw most of these scenes. The sound editor/fooley artist for this short was the amazing Lenny Menchiari and here's a sample of his amazing animation.
The supervising sound editor and other fooley artist was the talented JP De Guzman. As soon as I get a link to his site or what not I'll post it. I hope you guys out there like it.
Oh yeah there's a minor issue with a scene, I think it plays back a previous frame.

I have a love hate relationship with this one. So Green Lantern: First Flight dropped yesterday. I hoped you copped yours because it's worth buying. I saw it premiere at Comic-Con and I can't believe all of Ballroom 20 recited the Green Lantern oath before the movie. I don't know the words so I just sat there and looked like an idiot.
The film was directed by the big homie Lauren and additional scenes boarded by the other big homie Jay.

Just some designs I've drawn up in the past days. The one below is for the Draw Off competition in which we had to draw ourselves in 3/4 pose and then it's all going to be put in a collage or something along those lines. The design is a little off, my shirts and shorts are normally longer than that. Yeah my skin tone is a little off too, I'll fix that later. Drawing those Space Jams were a pain in the ass, that is one complex shoe.
Here's the other submissions:
Kalia "Hawaiian Tsunami" Cheng
Zack "Always Cool" Ramirez
Christina "Kiki" Manrique
Zack "Hawaiian Zack" Wong

There's tons of scenes that I would like to redraw, this being one of them. Due to time constraints I had to get scenes done as fast as possible, because I knew I wanted to spend more time on the post production and switching up scenes I didn't like in the animatic. So basically here's what made the final cut and the one above is what I really wanted it to look like.

"Music has been my outlet, my gift to all of the lovers in this world. Through it — my music, I know I will live forever". Michael Jackson, December 2007.
One of the greatest musicians of all time. Thriller holds the record for most albums ever sold, so if you want to dispute that statement just talk to the 109 million and counting that bought that album. I constantly listen to Thriller and Off the Wall when I'm drawing or animating. Zack R and I would throw on Off the Wall down in the labs to keep us awake when we pulled all nighters animating. I quickly drew this one while watching some of his iconic music videos on MTV. Guess what video this image is from.

Now I'm just getting lazy with the backgrounds. This is old and I just fixed it up, finally. So I drew this first and then I felt it was boring so then I drew the one below called Sai.
Oh yeah I made some adjustments to Violent Stars, so just scroll down to check it out.

Background painted by Zack Wong. This is the opening shot of my thesis film, that never would of happen without JP, Lenny and Zack convincing me to animate this scene that I had originally cut out. The original had very bad drawing of the character, so I finally got a chance to fix it.

UPDATE: Added some detail to Goten after a suggestion from Kalia.
Dragon Ball Z is to me what Disney is to most animation majors. I didn't want to be an animator because I watched Disney movies, I wanted to become an animator to draw cool shit all day and blow shit up after having a 3 episode long fight scene. These two are my favorite characters. I won't post the roughs because they're really bad, I had to do a lot of fixing with this one.

It's been a a busy few week with graduation and other end of the year ceremonies. So I haven't been able to draw that much or do anything art related, but I have all summer to update this with some more doodles. Until then I guess you guys have to stare at this.

And you thought I was joking earlier.
Kalia Cheng's artwork makes a cameo in this thesis snippet, so look real close to try and find it. This is not the best resolution, but until I find a way to make it better, this is as good as it gets. It might drop frames, so play it again until it plays smoother. And yes I'm well aware of the misspellings in the credits, and yes I did start off a sentence with "and". Conjunction junction what's your function.

It took a week to post this. This should have been posted last week, but stuff got in the way. So to bring you up to speed on what's going on here, Optimus Prime just gave him the Matrix because Hot Rod inadvertently caused his death and now there needs to be a new Auto-bot leader so Hasbro can sell more toys.
Just 3 scenes left to animate and this will be done. As soon as my friend finishes up putting some sound effects on the scenes, I'll post a snippet on this blog.
