Ian and Maxx is coming...

So everyone has been asking me what I have been up to since graduation, when I mention I'm not working for anyone I get quite a few surprised responses. Well I've been working, and developing a cartoon show. I have been working on this for a while now, and it all originally started from a short film I help create with Ryan Hobbiebrunken and Dan Wise.

We created the characters Ian and Maxx, and since the short film, I have always thought, these characters could have their own show! So I have been working on that idea on the side, and now its become a 24/7 days a week goal.

For anyone who hasn't seen the short film take a peek here:

Photo Sharing - Video Sharing - Photo Printing - Photo Books

I should note, we did this in about 10 weeks for a contest back in school so we could try and get a free trip out to Siggraph in 06. We only spent about 2 weeks on the animation, so its pretty "rough" in a lot of areas ha.

Thanks for watching :)


AM Poses & Sketches

So it's a new year and I'm looking forward to making this one bigger and better than last year! I am kicking off the year by training for a marathon that is coming up in May. I usually don't like running but so far its been fun and its going towards a great cause!

So I thought I would finally get some of my poses and sketches posted from my Class 1 at Animation Mentor.

I always explored when it came to drawing and posing in 3D, I would always chose a couple of poses and get feedback on the poses then work on one to make it the strongest.





Now this pose is still weak and not working.

Here was another idea I had but I didn't run with it because I thought this scene was more about the situtation.
