Free Time

When you draw on a wacom tablet seven days a week, 10 hours a day, it can be very difficult to find time to draw your own stuff on paper. Thats why, if you have any time at all, you take it. These are just a few doodles I did with the 5-10 minutes I had free from my busy schedule. No real thought process with these, I just let the pencil do all the work.

Asterix and the Vikings Rough Animation

I dont know how long these clips were around, but I just found them on the web a couple of days ago. You can tell that the big guy is voiced by Brad Garrett from Everyone loves Raymond. Cant wait to see this

After doing almost 3 years of both classical and symbol animation for flash, I wonder how it would feel going back to animating with paper and pencil. I know that flash makes it easier, and faster, but I miss the flipping of paper between my fingers and the overall look on a line test. Oh well, maybe I'll try it again some time. Heres a collection of rough animation from the Emperors New Groove DVD. Cheers!

Hammy's Boomerang Adventure Short

Here is the short found on the "Over The Hedge" DVD, which I believe came out onTuesday. I must say that I like the snappy animation of the squirrel, but its still a little too cutesy for me. I still havent seen the actual movie yet, but I hear its pretty good. Maybe I'll just save my pennies to buy it for that rainy day.

Beer and pizza tonght! TGIF!!

Inside Pixar!

Ever wonder what it looks like inside one (if not..THE) most popular animation studio? These are pics taken from someone on the Pixar Tour, and they're amazing. Check out the games room!! I know it looks cool inside, but I've heard that animators work their asses off night and day. But still, come on...Its Pixar.

Here is the project I did while working at Copernicus Studios, and done completly in flash. Each person in the studio was given one short to do, of Poncho the Football trying to do whatever it takes to play in the soccer finals in Germany. All the animation was done by myself, and all the special effects and backgrounds were done in Mexico. I was pretty happy with how this turned out, except for a few small changes the producers wanted. 1) They had the pilot shake his fist and 2) the bird was changed to climb the planes wing on the left side, rather than the right. Oh, and it was for Spanish television. But this is what is said:

Poncho: C'mon Duck, we got to go where the planes is!
Duck: Bah-k
Poncho-Quit yer back wackin Duck, nothin is going to happen to us!

Poncho: Hey open up!!!
Pilot: Hey!!!
Pilot:Here try this!!
Poncho: Germany Here I come!!!

Poncho: Hey Ducky, wheres your feathers??
Poncho: No,No,No, Dont...Yeaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
Duck: Germany...Here I Come...HaHaHaHa

Poncho:Look out Below!!!!
Poncho: Donkey..This is your lucky day..We'sa going to Germany...YEEEHAAA!!!

If I can find more episodes I did..I'll try and post them up later..until then..enjoy PONCHO THE FOOTBALL.

Line Of Action

Noticed this in the local paper. This is a young kid doing the Micheal Jackson dance on the waterfront. This is a great example of silouette and line of action. Great poses!!

Yes, the weekend is over and its time again for another long week. So I thought I would start posting every Monday a kind of motive to get out of that slump and back into action. These clips are from a graduating class from Paris, France. If this is the talent that is coming into the animation world...we're in trouble. These guys are unbelievable!!!

Now start animating!!!

The Paul Caron Movie

Made by yours truly!
