"Bigguns" animation is finished...

YeeHaw! It's official! "Big-guns" animation is complete! All that's left now is compositing fixes, SFX, and I'm gonna try to score the film with my band. If you're wondering when it'll be viewable, it's going to premiere online as soon as the Katzenjammer Studio (http://katzenjammerstudios.blogspot.com/) website launches (which is nearing). Keep them eyes peeled ya'll!

until then, here are some poses and parts i used for the project. Hopefully i'll be able to post some animation clips soon.

Man, prismacolors are so fun..but I get freaked out at how dark they look before they dry. It takes "artistic balls" to take a prismacolor marker to a good sketch...
Check out the accidental likeness to "Screech"!!!

In addition to my short film, "Bigguns", I've also been toying around with some wizard gag/concept stuff...and none of that Harry Potter crap (i'm a prejudging a-hole...i haven't seen or read any of em :)
Here's one from a bunch that I decided to splash with some color.

'BigGuns' special poses

Hey hey..still hard at work with the cartoon. Here are a couple key poses I scanned last night and will try to ink tonight...It's a great night when i can draw a pose, scan it, ink/paint it, symbolize it, and plug it into the animation.

Graduation Boy!!

Well, I decided to go with a classy illustration for my graduation announcements. It's been a tough journey but working in the animation has made every second of college worth it. Thanks to all my buddies who went through it with me and pushed me...go CSUF alum!!

The cast is set!!

The "BigGuns" animatic has been locked and my stock characters are cleaned up and rigged ('Flashed' with blinks and mouth charts).
Eventhough the film will be animated using Flash puppets (somewhat limited), I will try to draw and ink every special pose without trying to cheat parts too much. Keep checking back though, and hopefully I'll have some teaser scenes/grabs for ya!
