Lefty's New Ride

Here's a loop I did with the clown character in his car-- which is how he'll appear in the short subject. I did a fun multiplane repeat pan for the background. (I hope the actual You Tube video isn't as pixelated as it looks on my monitor.)

Here's the video...

Lefty's Walk

After focusing on backgrounds for a while, I'm getting back into some character animation. I just got Anime Studio Pro 9.5, and am really enjoying it. Here's a treadmill walk with Lefty the clown.

Uncle Freddy

Here's a piece I did for Halloween. Kind of a caricature of an old-school horror comic zombie.

Dr Sketchy's

I attended my first Dr Sketchy's. Basically, it's a gesture drawing class with a theme. Sunday's theme was postapocalyptic, and the model was a seriously lovely woman named Danni. Above are from the ten and twenty minute poses-- they started with one minutes, and worked up.

It was a hell of a lot of fun, and I plan to make the monthly Dr S sessions a habit.

Drive-Under Gag

Here's a background with tricky perspective, and a low-res piece of animation on You Tube demonstrating its function.

Rat Bastard & The Oracle of Wackyland

Here's a couple of recent pieces. Rat Bastard was for a pinball tournament at a local bar. The Oracle of Wackyland was a sketch I liked, so I digitally inked and painted it. Kind of a lowbrow/pop surrealism thing, named for a Bob Clampett cartoon.

This is a piece I did for the LCS Future anthology. It's kind of a companion to the Toad-Man piece below. Again, very B-movie inspired.
