Dancing Goat Animation ( Let’s Sing)

After one month of designing, 3d modeling, and animating, I have finally finished this short music video featuring this nerdy little dancing goat named Alex.

Music is by the talented SackJo22 featuring George Ellinas with Snowflake on vocals. Download the song here: http://ccmixter.org/files/SackJo22/38362. Song used under the CC-A License.

Daily Paint 54 – Nerdy Swampert Guy

swampert-stalker

A parody character that I might do a 4 sec short animation with. I will anthropomorphize anything. I have a coffee cup besides me.. I’m temped to anthropomorphize that as well. Somehow I forget to mirror it back during the painting process so the text is inverted..

For my advanced animation class I decided to tackle special effects. The movie contains 4 short scenes using effects made in After Effects. No third party tools where used.
Scenes:
Turtle breathing fire.
Columns in the sky with eastern dragon
Man’s head exploding

Daily Paint 45 – The IGN reviewer

daily-paint-the-ign-review

I am not too happy with commercial game review sites at the moment.  Many are not honest and have no integrity.  I was originally going to rant but I decided against it. With out further ado here is my interpretation of what an IGN reviewer looks like. I also added an IGN based meme.

Lesson of the story : Look towards personal blogs and small budding sites for your reviews.

Daily Paint 12 – Charizard!!

charizard realistic dragon life simular diaiy paint

Charmander’s final evolution or ‘adult’ form.  I gave him a more ‘dragon’ look. My favorite Pokemon next to Rayquaza. I am actually pleased with today’s daily. Took one hour to paint.  Fun random pointless fact: Did you know that despite looking like a dragon, Charizard is not considered a dragon type ,However his temporary mega evolution is considered a dragon type. Nintendo logic.

Katamari isn’t orginal after all.. (Daily Doodle 24)

katamari damacy wonderful end of the world

Alternate title : The Wonderful End of the World

When I play the Katamari series I feel like I am a dung beetle.. minus the dung part. For this piece I tried another rendering technique. I don’t think it worked for me this time, I will try it again. This is the last Katarmari fan art.. I promise.

Meerkat Gossip (Daily Doodle 1)

mercat painting gossip chat standing NOT timone

I did this doodle of  two meercats in a zoo gossiping.  It’s not a dragon. what else is there to do in a zoo? who knew. the cat made pancakes that are blue. in the the zoo. Did I mention that it is not a dragon? I spent 2 hours on this non dragon painting.

I am returning to my daily art thing. For 45 days I will sketch, paint, and or draw something  unplanned every day for 45 days.

The wools:

0. It must be a creature or a animal (humans included). No dragons. I paint enough dragons already.

1. 10 thumbnail sketches before you even start the painting.

2. No less then 30 minutes, no more then 2 hours.

3.Black and white only (my brain will explode if I use color at this time)

4. The VALUE RANGE SHALL BE PUSHED TO IT”S LIMIT!

The goal (in King James speak): thou get thee ideas out of head, thou practiceif composition every day, thou coverith the full value range in thou picture.

Like the last daily project I will not paint on tuesdays due to having classes all day. sorry.

Did I mention that there is no dragon in this painting?

Dragon Basking in the Sunset (Commission)

dragon relaxing

A commissioned painting. This was a fun yet challenging commission. I never thought I would do a painting of a dragon that was this peaceful.It had a good amount of foreshortening between the feet and the torso. It was also a lighting experiment with my attempt to paint rim and fill light.

Hobbit: You have nice manners for a thief and a liar (WIP)

smaug and hobbit cumberbach nice manners for a liar and thief

It is always important to mind your manners, even when your trying to steal a golden cup Arkenstone from a giant fire breathing dragon Cumberbatch . I don’t know why this image popped in my head, but it did. It probably has something to do with the stereotype of the british loving their tea . Although I spent a couple of hours on this already, it is still pretty rough. I need to get it done by tomorrow so it is adjacent with the release of Peter Jackson’s money printing machine the second Hobbit film. I did enjoy the second film so I look forward to seeing it again.

Note to self: it occurred to me that I have either made smaug too small or the dwarves and hobbitze too big. It throughs a ratchet in my comp so I will try to figure it out.
