17th Birthday!

Here's a Birthday sketch dump for you.
These were all quick gesture sketches ranging from 1-3 minutes.

These were done with pen and watercolor, although the water color faded quite a bit in the scan.

Spungella Guilt Contest

"...create a shot or sequence based on a specific topic using only 100 frames within one week..."
The word that was given was "Guilt"

I tied for 5th with like 4 other people based on the votes emailed to Jean-Denis Haas (ILM Animator and creator of the website, Spungella).
I don't brag often, but I was pretty pleased when I read this on his site, "...My runner up for 4th place would have been #4. His expression after he drives over the guy cracked me up...".
That was referring to me :)

Anyway, here it is in all it's crudely rendered, poorly animated glory.

I'm still waiting on a computer animated piece that I can be as happy with as a hand drawn one.
At this rate I think it'll be a while.

And on a side note, this is the 30th bit animation I've put on my blog since last May when I started.

Nerd Character Walk

Well here's my submission to the Spline Doctors walk animation contest.

I'm fairly happy with it, although I have to point out one thing I wish I didn't do and will probably fix. During an arm swing I attempted to place a smear frame and it simply looks horrible. Just thought I'd draw attention to it.

And here's a progression for those interested.

UPDATE* Final version is now posted.

50th Post!

For my 50th post, I thought it would be only fitting to post a tiny ninja.

Always Learning

Rad Sechrist, Dreamworks Story Artist, was kind enough to show me how to fix my drawings.
This only proves that I need to keep on drawing and learning as I go.

Thanks again Rad!
