A new post

Hello everybody, I honestly can't excuse my leave of absence. I have been tied down with finals and been doing a lot of work, but I should still upload my blog, so I apologize. Anyways, for those who read or look at my blog I posted storyboard pics for my upcoming comic, "Bug-Eye," and here are the first inks of those.....

Well that's all I am going to show now. I do have other things like model sheets and concept art i will show some day, but for now I think this will do. P.S I finished penciling half the comic so that is all I am going to work on this year and perhaps another year I will finish the rest of the strip. Hope ya'll enjoy and any feedback would be beneficial.

Happy Holidays!

Heckling Hare Attempt

Hello everyone who checks this blog, I have a new post!
This post is another exercise and I promise that I will soon show updates on my comic and a few other surprises... ;)

Anyways, this exercise is taken from John K.'s website and I always wanted to do it because it looked fun to do, plus Scribner is one of my favorite animators.

Well here it is, first the construction.....

Then the 2nd level of forms

And last but not least the details. (You can click on all these images to enlarge)

Well that's all the work I'm going to post now. I have also been doing caricatures, but I'm still in a slump with those. I feel I got to understand anatomy of the human face more. I also have one last final treat for all my readers and that is one of my favorite comics by the cartoonist Chester Gould, the guy who did Dick Tracy. I think this comic is ahead of it's time because of the loose style of the silhouettes and when I first saw this comic I couldn't believe it was Gould because most of his stuff is usually stocky and overbearing. The last 3 panels are my favorite and I enjoy how the bodies look when they are merged together, it really makes a beautiful shape.

Well that's it and next week I will have more and if you're in Baltimore come to comic con it's coming up, soon I believe, and I hear the line up is sweeeeet!

Quick Post

Hello. I'm still trying to figure out a way to scan some images, but for the mean time I scanned some Howie Post studies I did this weekend. Here they are...

This last image is not a Howie Post study, but a drawing I worked on last year. I'm starting to add color into it with colored pencils and I plan to finish it sometime.

Anyways I have to continue with thesis, getting back to school, yada yada and I will have another post soon, I promise ;)

Doodles and Stuff

Hi! I haven't posted in a while so I wanted to make a big post of stuff I been doing lately in my new sketchbook. Also I have some storyboard stuff for my upcoming comic. Anyways the first two images are copies, one from a strip howie post did and another is a disney cover.

Personally, I enjoyed doing the howie post one better not just it has less detail than the disney one, but I just thought the composition was more interesting. When I first glanced at that post panel I thought it was really generalized, but after copying it I noticed post was able to illustrate so much depth with few lines. The whole left side of the upper panel is blank and that area is what makes the composition compelling. When I copied the disney cover it did take me longer, but I feel the overall composition is just as appealing as post's.

I also did some caricatures watching movies and observing friends/family

Here is the first sketch of one of the main character's of my comic, Kip. I did this long ago please don't judge lol :P..... I also like this page b/c I made Skud's, the snail, shell look like a urinal.

Another quick sketch, 2 characters here are also in the comic Bobo and Cleft. Really, really soon I promise to upload the character studies of them for now I only have these sketches to show.

Sketch examining my fear of poodles

Some geese I observed at my elementary school when I was a kid.
(The goose in the middle is obviously angry)

Some backgrounds


Here are some storyboard drawings I've been working on. There still in progress and I am going to post some more later, but not too much because I don't want to reveal the story away.

Well that's it for now, but I'll be back soon with more caricatures, doodles, practices, and character studies/sb drawings for my upcoming comic. Stay tuned....

Flash Animation

Click Crocky Walk to see the basic walk cycle I did in my flash animation class.

Below are some character sketches/art and also the backgrounds I made for this short. I'm still new to flash and animation and I plan to continue it in the future. This short is inspired by the early Hanna Barbara art, but I feel I need to copy some of the art in that period so I can understand the style more. I plan to make do that this week and post it on my blog soon. 

Well here ends another blog. I am going to try to do a new post by next week to make up for the lack of posts this year.

Some stuff I did this summer

This summer I have been in two classes, flash animation and a Photoshop class, at FIT. Here is some work from my Photoshop class which ended about 2 weeks ago...

The shape image below is a project I thought was interesting. The class had to make a bunch of geometric shapes with the marquee tools and combine or cut them with other shapes to form one solid shape.  It was required to make 10 and this is my fav one. Anyways, I like the idea of shapes and may use the them of creating, seeing, and using shapes as the overall concept my final teaching year.

This was a fun project it was to create a room...

This room is the most complete because it has the shadows incorporated in it. I think it's clustered, but I like the colors.

Next week I am going to have this walk cycle from my animation class. Here's a sneak peek of the character.

Bye for now (: ......
