Did you know that African elephants have 150,000 muscles in their trunks? I didn't.

some drawings

It's been a while since I've sat down to do any real drawing. I think the dragon hunting/ horned hat look are a result of watching this trailer recently, and playing a bit too much Monster Hunter...

Mixed Bag

I recently got a chance to design the logo for our local Weightlifting club, I've never done any logo design but I like how this turned out.
I think every artist at one point or another gets asked by a friend/family member/co-worker to design a tattoo... this is also a first, and I'm not sure I would want this stamped on my body, but it was well received and having agreed to this an embarrassingly long time ago, I'm just happy to have completed it.

Jimmy artwork

Toward the end of Jimmy Two-shoes I was asked to create a series of promotional images; I'd never done any kind of polished artwork like this before so it ended up being a little crazy, but I had a lot of fun with them and learned tons!

Mostly I was given thumbnails to clean up/elaborate on, but this is one that I came up with the idea for and I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out.

The result of a drawing jam based on a random description generated from This website. Very fun, definitely have to do this again soon!

As it turns out, animating a guy jumping rope is pretty complicated... I decided to take a break and start with something a little simpler. It took my WAY longer than it should have, but now it's done!

Thanks to Meg for teaching me her super-awesome rendering tricks.

Jump Rope

With work on Jimmy Two-shoes wrapping up, I'm finally taking some time to do a little animation!

I purchased a series of awesome tutorials by Jason Ryan a while back, but never got a chance to really dig into them. This is my first shot at a guy jumping rope; after slogging my way through all of Flipbook's little quirks, and remembering how to actually animate with drawings, I think it looks pretty decent. It's not fully inbetweened and I'm not really happy with the movement, but instead of redoing it I think I'll take it into 3D and try to make the next "assignment" better. Any feedback is much appreciated!

3D stuff

Just a quick ball test, soon to be improved upon.
