wow it's been a pretty slow month for posting on the old blog it seems....

STRONG FINISH! I hope it is at least. As has been my thing since school, I'm slowly giving my reel and animation abilities booster shots, hoping I can slowly move into the professional realm at some point (sooner rather than later preferably). So yep some animated thingies, many either works in progress or things that are just a bit too sketchy or simple to warrant an upload on youtube or vimeo. Tried uploading them with blogspot's video thing and they weren't really playing so I'm giving some direct links to them on my photobucket.

Thanks for looking!

In my continuing way of not posting finished things, I've got another doodle I did earlier. Always loved Patri Balanovsky's (aka Chuck,mate) work so I thought I'd give an attempt at the way he does his sketches. I don't think I really matched his at all (his have much more life to em) but it was alot of fun regardless.

I'll get something a bit more finished up asap!

I've got a couple of walk cycles I did recently but I'm having more trouble than I should getting them into decent animated gif format. Sooo I'll just hold off on em until I have a couple more to put into a youtube video or something. These sketches are for a sort of poster thing I volunteered to do for my friend's Drink and Draw gatherings. I was thinking something along the lines of a quill/inkwell tap pouring ink into a beer mug that is atop a sketchbook. Oh and some bluish, smoky patterns going on in the top background. The color comp was mostly just me getting my initial ideas down, and the composition would probably have more open space surrounding the image, centering it. I'm slowly working it up, so I'll put progress shots up as I go.
