Tiny Dancer

I'm super proud of this! Did the whole thing tonight - it's a test for a larger music-video project I'm working on. (She's actually supposed to have a banjo, but I was so eager to animate her that I skipped that part!). Here are two slightly different versions to enjoy. As you can see by the difference in color, I'm still getting the hang of exporting videos.

Two Portraits - In progress

Sean Penn & Beyonce! I've been playing a lot with traditional medias lately. I'm so taken with the luminence that genuine paintings have. The way the pigments sparkle in the light is so incredible.

Pioneer Tiger!

Here's a shaky cam shot of a painting that I'm working on. It's inspired by Neko Case.

Puppy in pumps. <--the worst animation you've seen in a while

This is something I whipped up in AfterEffects as a test to see if I could use the software to animate a character created in Photoshop.

Beyond the generally bad timing & movement in this little 3-second clip, I'm really enthused at how simple AfterEffects is to use and how seamlessly it works with both Photoshop & Illustrator. I'm excited about it and will definitely be working on a high-end piece in the near future!

Batman III: The Dark Rumor Mill

Cher, Bale, Depp, Hoffman.

No, this is not my wishlist for the 3rd Christopher Nolan Batman film. These are actually rumors that have been made (and possibly already debunked?) It's been fun to illustrate not only 4 celebrities, but also what they would look like in the role of these comic book personalities. (update October 12)

Mr. Cobblepot

This one was so wonderfully easy - inked and drew it in just an hour between jobs, then came home and colored. The whole project is now 3/4 complete! Almost finished...
