This is the first concept animation for a possible alternative co I was thinking of.  Either way it was fun to re realize some 2D animation principles via the free to download “Plastic animation Paper” software. although it does not do coloring, It is very good for digital animation, as good as other expensive tools.  It feels very organic.

This has been sitting around for less than a year so I decided to run it through photoshop because my after effects is acting funny.  It came out of a sketch that happened in the last decade so I decided to expound upon some concepts that involved cartoon brains with legs, arms, or limbs thereof…

Been doing some texturing runs in 3DCoat 4 and love the ease of painting 3D stuff in realtime. You can see the results in the video.

also put up some 3D concept designs for future designs. Otherwise still rebuilding the game and site.

DO NOT COPY OR REPRODUCE THESE DESIGNS AS INSPIRATION FOR FURTHER 3D SCULPTS…THANK YOU!

I’ve been using my new sketchbook to visualize a cartoon pilot I wrote called  “Stewpid”.  Also doing some other sketches.   Might color some of these up later, meanwhile if you want to read this pilot let me know.  It is HI-larious!

 

Just updating this blog with some new sketches in the new sketchbook I got. That’s all!

 

                                              

Been busy the last few months with conferences and networking.

Just coming off a trip to Dallas Comicon which really shouldn’t qualify as a networking event, but I met animator/director Ralph Bakshi there and saw quite a bit of artists and cosplayers there as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also attended the 3DCamp Houston which was great. I met a lot of people in all areas of 3D work and was introduced to some 3D printing goodies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There was the always informative TEDx held in Sugarland(another one will be in Houston in Nov.) the same day we received the news about Neil Armstrong. Nevertheless, we were treated to some great performances, lectures, and FOOD!

 

Startup Houston was the first of my tour of local conferences and I’d have to say it was just OK. The location was kind of cramped and it seemed as if some more organization might be needed in the local chapter. Once again though, they were on point with the catering! I hope to attend one or all of these affairs again next fall. What an ad-vent-ure!

BYE

The Norman Normal short was released by Warner Brothers some decades ago and seems concerned with the ability of adults to act responsibly in social situations. Many of the undertones take jabs at racial equality and other political issues.

I’ve reworked one of the illustrations of the party Norm goes to in this short to reflect a more modern feel. In fact I added several African American guests to the party rather than resorting to clever indirect lighting. Hehe!

Aahhh!  So boring, where’s real the party!

I’ve been doing some concept work on a screen play I wrote some time ago called “Rapeseed”! Wow what a title! Can’t reveal all the details yet but here’s a taste of what I’ve got so far in terms of character designs and an animation concept aswell! Give it a try eheh! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the test animation I made with the main character on the run from the Popo in a futuristic world where men are subservient!

Here are some concept sketches of the characters…I’ve colored thus far.  Looks pretty interesting huh!  Keep checking back for more of this kind of stuff.  Still working on the game and some architecture but I’ll post that later.
