Oh looky, I get a break in the weather and I'm actually able to accomplish something! Who knew?!
Here we have my latest favorite seat...octopus and girl.
I like how I didn't bother to hook up the octopus' arms very well from the lid to the seat. That's klassy!
Ride 'em, cowgirl!
This is one of my fave pin-ups that I've done. She looks pretty good, has a nasty scowl on her face, and is a redhead.
This close-up is kinda fuzzy, but hopefully you get the point:
This week I'm looking forward to actually being able to work on the freelance stuff I have to do, since I now have something resembling character designs to work with. Woohoo! I still don't know when the roughs are due, but oh well. I'll just keep plugging away.
One of the voices on this show is Patrick Warburton. Yeah, that guy from Seinfeld(a show that I don't particular like), and he voiced Kronk in Emperor's New Groove(a movie that I liked mainly because of his character in the flick). In real life he's a rather deadpan fellow expression-wise, but his reads for animation are very expressive. Very expressive. It makes me want to put a pose in for every other word he says. Needless to say, it's hard to do that, so it really slows me down when I try to break down big chunks of dialogue into manageable pieces of storyboard panels.
Darn you to heck, Warburton! Darn you for having such a fun, expressive voice!
Anyway, I need to have the roughs done before I leave town for the weekend on St. Paddy's day. I'm going up to Sacoftomatoes to catch an interleague bout: Sacred City vs. Bakersfield. Sacred City is the breakaway league from the original Sacramento league. I submitted a rough logo idea or two to Sacred City, which they promptly discarded because they actually didn't know what it means to submit rough ideas. I'm not gonna clean something up that isn't going to be used, by gawd.
Bakersfield had the good sense to use my logo idea, so I might be cheering for them just a little bit more over the hometown girls. Ha! That's what happens when you dismiss my work!
One of these days I want to blog about the infamous "Anibator" who had a helluva blog about the animation biz up, but has since taken it down for various reasons. Anibator was anonymous, as were most of the commenters on his blog, but there were some excellent points made about the sad, pathetic state of animation.
