No2 Animated Gif

Final Aired Version
Gif compliments of my internet homie, meorkisyourpants :D

Motorcity Rough Animation No2

v

Here’s a breakdown of some animation I did for this weeks episode of Motorcity, “Blond Thunder”.  Originally this was not on my shot list hence I begged Ben Kalina to hook it up. I felt it was an important and iconic shot for the episode and wanted to treat it that way.
I also kept in mind that “No.2” is a sexy and cool character-design and therefore should move sexy and cool. 
Anyways.  I put this video together to share my general animation process with you.  It demonstrates the development and progress of the rough key animation to the final-rough line animation with inbetweens. I hope this is fun and insightful.  Thanks for watching:)

FooD1


Last night I attended a Jim Mahfood book signing at Meltdown comics.  I picked up his rad "un-official Tank Girl sketchbook".  Anyways, he's been a large influence on my style this past year so I did this sketch with FooD1 in mind.   Dig it.

Hanging with Dadwardian...


These are a couple of concept-character sketches I did for my friend Edward Artinian.  He gave me the character descriptions and wanted a sorta 70's/sci fi look.  I don't know if I nailed that or not, but we both felt pretty good about 'em:)  Hope you do too.

Fun Fact:
Edward Artinian is the lead FX dude on Motor City.  Here's a link to his Tumblr

Mike and Tooley fight gif

http://meorkisyourpants.tumblr.com/ is awesome.  This person made 3 gifs of my animations on "Motor".  Anyways, the sequence was boarded by Ed Tadem and inbetweened by Kat Ruzics.

Also check out this great "Behind the Scenes of 'Motor City'".  It was also in a featured article on Cartoon Brew.  I animated "Tooley Fight" and animated Mike "jumping good" from 9:47-9:57.

Thinking about Jean Michel Basquiat




I was on a huge Basquiat kick when I drew these.  If you don't know who that is I highly recommend googling the name and watching the documentary "The Radient Child".  He's too incredible.
