Live action!

Working on my first LIVE ACTION project! Super excited about it. I'm working on it with mastermind James Martinez. I bet it's pretty unorthodox, but James suggested that we work from animatic (which I'm only all too happy to do, since that's what I'm familar with.

I want to do it really stylized, and I've got some wild lighting ideas (mostly stolen from Creepshow (so pulp comics) and Argento). I'm not sure what's gonna be possible for us, but I'm sure whatever we finally come out with will still be hilarious!

Prelim designs...

Prelim design work for a cartoon I'm currently "writing" (hehe, is that cynical?). I'm trying to make SUPER SIMPLE, appealing character designs so they'll be easy to animate. If I strip off the superfluous details and stuff, I'll feel more comfortable pushing the animation as far as possible without lots of headaches over cleanup and such.

The character was gonna be a preacher but I think I'm going to make him a door to door salesman. The lightbulb shape should be easy to work with. I think the other primary character will be a little more tricky to design, but hopefully I can keep this level of simplicity.

Why am I writing more cartoons when I have a two 3 minute cartoons and a 7 minute cartoon to finish? *Sigh* Back to the drawing table...

Poo poo pee doo.

The roots of my immaturity can be clearly traced back to Betty Boop. Anyhoo, working on layouts for the next cartoon. I'm working right over the animatic (which you can see really faintly on the bøttom). Those are super loose drawings, and now I'm tightening them up (perspective grid and all) so I can get them into photoshop to do clean inks. Then I run them through to mill to color them with textures and the whole nine yards. God bless America.

Getting excited and trying to keep my nose to the grindstone. I think we'll launch for the new year. Then you can really confirm what a waste of time my life has been haha
