So a buddy at my current studio and I have started playing a little game to challenge each other artistically, keep us sharp, and have some fun between drawing snails for animation. The premise of the game is to randomly pick from a huge database of comic book characters a character that begins with the letter of the week and draw a quick sketch of said character. This past week was the letter E.
Below is my submission. Can you guess the name of the character?
Sidebar: The post title comes from the nickname that another co-worker has given this little contest of ours for it's propensity to pick the most obscure comic book characters that no one remembers or has heard of.
Each morning I commute into Hollywood to work on the Turbo tv series and I see some pretty interestingly sketchy characters. This week I saw a character devoted to his craft and I had to devote myself to my craft and sketch him out as soon as I got to my desk.
I tried to remember as much as possible by taking a mental "snapshot" and then go over all the details, describing the scene to myself repeatedly, until I could commit the memory photo to paper. In this case, digital canvas.
Sadly my time on Monsters Vs. Aliens at Nickelodeon has come to an end. I enjoyed working with the incredibly talented crew on that show and being a part of Nickelodeon for a season.
I am glad to announce that I am joining the team at Titmouse Animation Studios to board on the new TURBO F.A.S.T series.
You can check out the latest trailer for the actual Dreamworks feature film here:
So you've waited 4 long years for it and now it's finally here! ;)
What's been keeping me away from sharing love here for what feels like 8 months?? Storyboarding episodes of this brand new series for Nickelodeon.
I work along side the talented crew that boarded and created this first episode that was being finished up (preproduction) when I joined the team. The link above is to the introductory episode with more monsterous epic battles and funny business in following episodes.
It's been quite a ride and learning experience working with some really talented, funny, and great artists/fellow humans ;)
