Stayed up WAY too late...

For those of you who are considering having children, a word of advice. Don't stay up 'til 3 a.m. coloring your doodles if you know that they're gonna wake up at 6:00.

Anyhow, here's a color version of the Aries doodle below. Enjoy.

Capoeira Pt. 2 - Aries

I've been developing a series of characters for some time now based on the zodiac (another one of my self-inflicted assignments). Anyhow, I enjoyed the capoeira pose (below) so much that I wanted to see how it'd work on another character of mine.

I'm starting to push my posing ability, with an appreciation and emphasis on dance and martial arts. I've been feeling the need to get past the same static 3/4 front basics. Here's one of my first attempts:

Grumpy Bison

Had a chair fall apart on me the other day...made me feel like doodlin'. I've been on this bison kick, so this quick one kinda flowed.

In case you were wondering, these are warm-ups for a lil' freelance gig I'm working, having to do with endangered animals.

Humans can be such a-holes sometimes.


Just another warm-up that seemed to work out...

Warm-Up With Dwarves

Here's a little warm-up sketch for kicks...took about 10 minutes, not including the p-shop time (for display purposes).

Here's another lineup from a show that is stalled in development. While the process of getting a show from development into production can be arduous...I always enjoy the chance to come in at the front end of an idea. It's the time when everyone is excited about the project, and happy to try interesting stuff. Of course, it's up to you all to decide whether or not these are interesting, but...that was the endeavour.

One More Pastel

Another quick color experiment...

Environmental Studies

Every so often I crack open the pastels to break away from the digital world, and attempt some environmental color studies. Here are a couple... the first being inspired by the work of Tyrus Wong who is still, to me, one of the unsung heroes of animation design.

Had to do some Egyptian henchmen for a sequence at work...and just as I was wrapping up the design, the director got a brilliant idea - 'Let's do that entire scene in hieroglyphs!'

So, I took these home, cleaned 'em up, and posted 'em.

Sketchbook Scribbles Vol.1

I've been wrapping up a sketchbook lately, and I wanted to just go thru and scan some hilights. Enjoy.
