inking practice

Done in ToonBoom Studio.
I've never inked in toonboom so I thought I give one of John k's suggestions a shot.

Caricatures for $5.00

Ive recently discovered a pretty cool site called, its a site for people to buy and sell services for 5 bucks, no more, no less. theres a lot of creative stuff being sold there, but Ive started making money off what I was already doing for free on occasion anyway, drawing caricatures based on people's photos. I know its better to do this sort of thing in person, but I rarely have that luxory...

Anyway, here are some of the results so far. Im realitively new to caricatures, Im used to drawing realistic, or straight up cartoony. Im hoping to branch out a bit, to train my eyes see each face's distintive features, figuring out what to exaggerate and what not to.

So far its been hard for me, a lot of times I worry I dont have the likeness down enough, but since Im charging rediculously low prices I figure that should make up for it if they dont think it looks like them enough. theres also the whole dont offend them too much thing which Im sure a lot of artists struggle with at first.

Animorphs fan film

what seems like forever ago me and a handful of people were planing to do an Animorphs Fan film completely in CG. long story short, all that fell through. ( scrol down to an older post for the long version if you like)

While nothing really came out of that project, I did have a number of assets still. while searching on youtube I stumbled on this guy, Adam Hawker, who was working on an Animorphs fan film in live action, so I offered to help out with some of the ships, and that led to pretty much all the 3d stuff he would need, including creatures. Since I already had an andalite model I animated some shots of dialogue between Visser 3 and Alfangor. In October 07 he posted a rough cut of the first 10 mins on youtube. check it out if you want. (keep in mind a lot of those shots have since been redone)

Months back my hard drive died, I'm back at square one. So after much procrastination I restarted modeling my andalite. this looks to be turning out much better than my original one, who died with my hard drive. its taking me a while to do though.

Ive been trying to research centaurs to get a better on idea of the anatomy. one good thing Ive seen was a behind the scenes footage of Narnia, which I think was the most convincing centaurs to date. I'll look to horse galloping footage to animation reference once I get this done and rigged.

I hope to add more defined muscles and maybe some ribs, however I need it to stay clean for animation. so I might end up faking some of it with textures.

Will try to keep this place updated, so check back soon. or in 6 months, your call. ;)


Mila Kunis Speed Paint

there are 2 definitions of speed paint, one is painting fast, the other is just a time lapse. and that's what this is. this was the first time I was able to paint without severe lag. it turned out pretty well I think, though the right cheek looks off.

Drawing a Day

Im going to start trying to post at least one drawing or doodle a day. Let's see how long that lasts. knowing me, probabaly only one day, ha ha, but we'll see.

This is kind of an inside joke, but it could be funny anyway.
