things







the real reason for so many posts: school starts soon! eek!
also, i have a sneaking suspicion that any story you leave in your head long enough becomes a superhero story. :/

AC! Finally!




our assignment was to take the fairytale "King Thrushbeard" and make it your own... I took Thrushbeard right back to the 60s. it was a blast, and I don't normally say this, but I'm really proud of myself. a lot of the things we did I'd never really attempted before (like drawing cars, or even digital painting). I feel like my story is cohesive, if a little silly. so even though I have a long way to go, this was a good start, and now I want to do this sort of art more.
Hopefully the story reads! (also, holy capslock, this has to be the most images i've had in one post! umm, whoo!)






















later: more things! digital stuff! superheroes! character design!

almost done!


homestretch, people! this is the poster for my final for my ACAN class. I'm scanning a bunch of other stuff, and hopefully i can post the finals in the next couple of weeks. even though I don't think that this is my strongest work in terms of technique, i had a blast making the characters and the story for this.

also, I recently saw "Song of the South", which is one of Disney's lost films, due to race issues. Even though I can see why they wouldn't want to release it, it's really a shame, as it's a fun old movie, with some good animated bits. I also got a copy of "Coal Black and the Sebben Dwarves", which is much less politically correct, but a damn good Clampett short. look for these!
