Fun Times


I made this some time ago. I decided to crop it so i can hide some inconsistencies in the drafting and inking. Demo reel is loaded, but the player doesn't fit right yet. Gotta bug Marcus about that. While I'm at it I need to get to working on his banner. He emailed me this link full of wicked spectacular wallpapers. http://www.vladstudio.com/wallpapers/

Ignore the fact I used the dodge tool to make highlights. Bleugh, I was so naive back then.

Milestone




I am almost 'there' for being done my demo reel, I simply have to assemble all the animation and then burn it to a CD and/or DVD. Here's a page from the PreJump comic I was working on. With every picture or project I always get the feeling to not post something and tear it down and start anew. I am going to begin to play with illustrator. Last time I was in Adobe Illustrator I was extremely frustrated and wished I was in Photoshop. When I'm doing a clean coloured image in Photoshop I wish I was in Flash, and when I'm in Flash I wish I'm something that can read my mind. Ces terrible!

Blue Bot

Two robots for my game. I'm thinking of changing the name of 'Prejump' to something scientific and foreshadow-ingly tasty. The first one is a patrol guard for high security premises. The second is a gernerus. Or. Gerneric robot that has multi-attachment points for various things. Like guns and scientific intruments (geiger counter).

Went to Fedex Kinkos today. I phoned like a month before asking the measurements for business cards. Of course when I go in today I get metaphorical hiccups. Had to come back home and correct the oddities in layout. That's it for whining hour. Otherwise inking a few pages of my comic and my stork story to add into my disposable portfolio. Oh did I mention that anywhere previously?! Well, surprise. Yes, I have the comic thought out pretty well. The visuals and story I find are pretty original. Nothing ground breaking, but still interesting.

I have a habit of wanting to redo the things. I always feel I can do better the following week. I probably could. I just wouldn't make any progress that way, and I have to tread somewhere other than in one spot. Otherwise that's called a death march. Hot damn.

The 'Stork Story' is a little story I thought of when I went to visit Mikki (my g/f) when her two sisters had their babies within twenty-four hours of each other. I figured thats pretty special, and a story came into my head. Again nothing ground breaking, but it's solely visual. No words except the title. That way I feel all ages can read it without having to bear the "Dave ran to the store. He ran fast." single subject sentences that always make suicide enticing. Hot damn.

Unnerving

Here is a space monster that almost seems friendly. Almost.
