John and Mi

So, I had some extra time and started drawing some random people...and then I came across these two...they looked a little different before they made it here, but...I was filled with this idea that they looked kinda familure...

Oh yeah...John Lasseter and Hayao Miyazaki...what a pair they make.

Actually, the one that I thought looked like Miyazaki looks less and less like him...Lasseter's sorta there. Really I need to work on my charactures of people. I'm gettin better but it's still not there.

Alot of where I got the look for John was from another artist who works at Pixar, Ronnie Del Carmen. I love this guy's stuff...don't care what anyone says.

He too has a blog if you want to check it out, which you should anyway...even if you don't.

The Grey Coats...

So, it's been a good while since I had something I felt that i wanted to post on this here blog...and I still don't think i have anything THAT amazing to show...but I gotta put something.

So i've been trying to think up some better designs for characters in the comic I finished up...give em a bit more of a cartoony feel and more prominently speaks of "my style" rather then something obviously Darwyn Cooke.

I'm kinda happy with this but it's still not quite's close though.

Ithink I'm going to have to start pullin out the Alex Toth and try something else...
Anway, these are them...I rather like the beard on the chubby guy...very fancy.

I tell yah, it is hard stuff working on a comic though. Alot of fun but...sheesh. The the good news is that today we had a meeting with the people at the comic studio and they seemed to like it for the most part...but we got pushed back to the fifth issue.

That sucks the big one.

But all is not lost...the only means we're slotted for the fifth. Should any artist no come in on time or just straight don't do their work...we could be bumped up. But I'm not holding out...chances are it won't be something we get to bring with us to San Diego...but who knows.

Damn, has it really been that long since I posted anything new on this thing? Well, I could make alot of different excuses but I think the only one I'm happy with is that I've been working on the comic, which FINALLY got done. I think next time I'm definately going to have to work out a better regiment and have it done alot sooner and alot faster cause there were a few points were I seriously thought the writer, Joe, was going to murder me something fierce. But in the end, it turned out pretty nice and I'm not totally discgusted by it at least. Course now it's up to the people at the studio to decide whether they can put it in the 3rd issue of the series like we'd hope to do. Which would have been awesome seeing as that mite have meant we could take it with us to San Diego in cool would that be?
If nothing else, I've now got the time to work on a sketchbook for Comic Con and try to put together a few pieces of animation for a new portfolio...we'll see how that turns out if at all.
Mean time I haven't got anything on me that I'd want to post but the work day isn't done...should have something later tonight. If not, definately tomorrow.
Figure I gotta start puttin this blog to use for once.

Though I did get excited cause now I figured out how to post movies on my now like alot of people I can put up pointless stuff that I didn't have any part in except that I think it's really awesome.

By the way, this the opening of an anime calle RE:Cutey Honey. I think it was a anime from the later 60s but then remade twice before getting this version by Anno hideako.

If you're an anime fan, you've probably seen his stuff once or twice.
I'm usually not a fan of anime but I gotta say...this thing was awesome. To bad it was so short.
