Advanced Character Design

Hello! I haven't posted for a while because I had the pleasure of taking Advanced Character Design with the amazing Chris Sasaki at the Animation Collaborative. If any of you are interested in moving into animated film, I highly recommend this school! The classes are small and very hands on. Here are some images that show the development of my characters:

Watercolor Fun

To mix things up I painted some quick characters on watercolor paper, then took them into photoshop, touched them up, and tossed a few textures on there for a background. It was fun and next time I have a few things I would do to improve.

Corel Painter

After seeing how amazingly close Painter can get to traditional media, I knew it was only a matter of time before I gave in and devoted some time to seeing what the program had to offer. Today is the day! Here is a quick test using only the "Artist Pastel Chalk".

Frog Ortho

Here is an example of the designs I'm creating for a company specializing in face recognition software. They plan to make these and many more into 3D, and using their software, the faces will animate in real time as a camera captures your movements.

Berkeley Lab Open House

Below are some previs and final images I created for the Open House.

New Blog!!!

Welcome to my new blog! And I know what you are thinking, "why create another blog when your last one was so amazing?!" Well, I'm glad you asked. Aside from the fact that the name was rather complicated and difficult to remember, so much time has passed since I have had work I am allowed to post, that I just felt it was time for change. If you would like to visit the old blog, click here.

To get your mouth watering, here are some quick character designs! These are for a story named "The Box", in which the main character views the world through his twisted imagination. That means that he sees things as he perceives them, as apposed to how they look in reality. For example, when he looks at a homeless person he sees disgusting bugs! The concepts below are for a homeless man perceived as a cockroach.
