Sketch Creep

It has come to my attention the difficulty that comes when drawing children and parents. It is hard enough drawing children, one they never stop moving, two they always end up looking like freaky dwarfs on your paper, and three it feels down-right creepy. However, it's even worst when the parents are there too because it basically amplifies the "creep" factor on your part. Either you have to draw them from a million miles away and at that point you can really only make out their basic shape, or you have to draw their back so they won't see you.

These series of drawings were to depict a short story of parents and children interacting.  I will say that on average, parents usually sit or stand in one place while the children run around.

And here is a lonely figure drawing.

Still Shot Surgery

The stop motion project continues forward.  This break was intensively productive!  We are about ready to wrap up animation in a couple weeks.  It is again getting challenging because of school and this semester, recruiters!  Just wanted to update everyone with a story while we anticipate the film's completion!

Recently, our puppets underwent an intense surgery to recover from over-usage by yours turely.  This required their clothing to be removed to repair the damage underneath where the sun don't shine!  If you are under the age of 18 years, please leave this page now!

 AAAAAAA!!!!  Yah she is naked, but even worst she cracked!

 We also had to remove the giant screws placed in their backs that kept them planted to the couch.

This was for a specific reason and for the best.

Here is another look at the workstation, the Batcave!  What's that?  Oh yes, our puppets stand now!!! DUN DUN DUN!!!

Yet another of the many hurdles to overcome in stop-motion.  Please keep rooting for us!  Your support means everything!
