Split Attention


Here's another morning sketch, this time honoring those who contribute their time to our national forest and parks.  They are like real life power rangers, especially because most of them have pet bears.

Revealed


Here's a quick morning sketch I did.  It was inspired by a segment in this Frontline episode

Biding








Sorry for the lack of updates, but I am currently working on concepts for a new project I will committing the later half of this year towards and will hopefully keep up.  I'm really excited!  It will still take me a few weeks to finish up all the concepts.

Pixel Month

I haven't posted for a while.  I got swamped with some small freelance projects and gallery pieces this pass month.  I'll post one for now, and then promise to update with some more later.


Kick-Ass (and Hit Girl) - Jules Jammal Superhero Gallery

All gallery submissions will be auctioned off to raise for a scholarship fund in honor of our fellow ShrunkenHeadMan comrade and faculty, Jules Jammal, who passed earlier this year.  All the pieces turned out amazing, and it was pleasing to see devotion of the Animation/Illustration club at SJSU to pay tribute to one of its members.

I'll update with details of the auction and gallery in the coming month.

Press Start


Here's another drawing of a familiar character I like to draw.  Some of you may recognize him from my very first Flash project I did in school.  He's a snow lizard that lives in the Arctic and must wear the appropriate attire since he's cold-blooded.  He uses his giant magnifying glass to melt and crush ice.

Oh yeah, and remember that piece I did of Koopa Kid a few months ago for the SHM charity?  Well, teh gallery is live and the auction begins soon!  Check it out HERE and participate!

Leaps and Layovers



It's finally done, I've been working on this piece for too long, in my spare time whenever I felt like it.  It's a follow-up to my old man walk cycle, this time creating all the rough animation in Flash and then cleaning and coloring the final frames using Photoshop (Extended)'s "Timeline" feature.  The original idea was simply a fox jumping around and I wanted to play around with trying to have a character change shape over the duration of the animation without it feeling too obvious.  Obviously, I just kept adding more to the original idea, but it was very fun to animate and further develop the Fl > Ps pipeline.  Now that I'm done, I can start my other ideas that have been sitting on the back-burner.

Reversing


Doodling away to end this surprisingly filled weekend.  This sketch turned out differently than I intended, but I like the mono-toned style.  The Olympics are over, so it ended up becoming a winter snowy piece, haha!  For those select few, they may recognize this character I draw occasionally.  He is a lizard that lives in an arctic-like climate.
