    I’m gearing up to do the 11 Second Club this month! Here’s a character sheet for the little witch that stars in my animation.
It felt nice to get back to drawing on paper this past weekend. I didn’t open up my computer to until this morning. I’ve done all of my sketching and thumbnails with pencil so far. Time to bring it into Harmony!

    Dad Brand Socks sketch! Silly sketching. I always give Colin a hard time for only wearing these socks. #dadsocks #sketch #socks #dad

    New toy coming soon! I’m sculpting a Doom Bunny out of Chavant Clayette from The Engineer Guy for a plastic cast. I am looking into a Kickstarter to make the first edition. #engineerguy #bunny #toy #customtoy #sculpture #chavant

    This is a quick layout digital painting that I did for an animation that Colin is working on. A salmon is going to be leaping out of the water. KaSplOOsh! It was refreshing to get back to some landscape painting and it only took a couple hours. I’m getting the hang of digital painting.

    Below the layout are some characters sketches that I did for a kids’ book that I’m illustrating. Yay for digital painting!

    I just sculpted the head machete to help me figure out how to sculpt Odin’s face in Maya. My first character model is going well so far. #Odin #Maya #Viking #norse

    Adventures in Autodesk Maya! Here are the scenes that I created in Maya for Professor Maloney’s Digital Form, Space and Lighting class. It was hell to learn, but I came out alive and smarter than before. The swamp and tree house are supposed be be based off of a voodoo witch’s house in the bayou.

    Below the swamp images is my character design of Odin and his ravens. I’m modeling him now. That’s his turn-around sketch. I drew it with a Copic marker. Under that is the beginning of his torso sculpt in Maya. He’s going to look so awesome!
