Invisible Robot's first victim-Click for SWF

Once I animate his mouth , I'll post what happens to him.
I'm going to animate a bunch of guys dying at the hands of Invisible Robots.
It'll be the Bambi vs Godzilla joke just repeated.

New airship Vihar ... in 3DS Max this time

Just an exercise in building the Közelgõ Vihar in Max (and just this Thursday a.m. I fixed the render so the props start from zero rotation and go faster the faster the Vihar moves ... THE PITCH TO PENNY-FARTHING WENT OUT THIS P.M. ... IT'S PART OF MY "PITCH-A-WEEK" PITCHING PLAN. I'LL KEEP YOU POSTED ON HOW THINGS GO.

I'm still posting 3 Nearsighted Comics cartoons a week at (click on the title of this post to see the site)!  Go check it out!  I seem to be keeping up with the pace without breaking a sweat, so I may be tempted to go 5 days a week.  I suppose it depends on whether or not people think the cartoons are actually funny at all.

More of my effort

It's sad  but not too surprising that this didn't get finished for tonights Channel 101 presentation. Very challenging to put out a 4 min animated short in three weeks with about 5 people max working on it. Not including voice talent, but that's it's own logistic challenge.

My New Hero...Adam Philips

Title is a link to his youtube page.

That is FLASH. Terribly exciting example of its use.

Revised Lip Sync- Purple Nurple

I can claim no credit for this improved version of the lip sync work. I was primarily an inker. The revision came back like this and I just did the line art and clean up.

More Flash

Click the Headline to see some more Flash from the project I'm working on. It has suggestive language. The Character Assfault, is trying to "seduce" the girl on the back of his motorcycle. They are being pursued by a shape shifting mass of Alien tentacles with teeth called Gigglers.

I did the art and the lip synch to this part which will be integrated with after effects into something that cuts from this shot to close ups of the characters.

I'm digging the Flash. I think I've mentioned that.


My effort on solo lip syncing so horrified MC that he sent back a document that basically I just inked over. So when you visit my site go to the main blog and see the final version. It's a LOT better than what I did. And hopefully stuck with me to some extent.

Doing a little FLASH

Helping someone animate a web short. Doing little pieces at a time. This took me about 6 hours! yeesh. I'm speeding up and getting faster. It's what I want to be doing. Using Flash to animate and tell stories with.

The black background is actually a default for the alpha. The character would have a strong outline if you imported the clip into after effects and turned off the alpha.

The title takes you to the youtube location. You have to click it about 5 times before you can see all of it play. It's maybe a second and a half long. Will probably be timed differently enough to play about  3 seconds

Final Entry Posted on Carly Simon's Web Site

Here is the official entry, on Carly Simon's Site, but also on YouTube as a mirror post (or whatever they call it).

Have a look; tell me what you think. This is not a popularity contest so no one HAS to check it out, but I like sharing this kind of stuff and posts like this are the easiest way.

If you want to see other videos, click on the title and you'll see them in thumbnails to the right side of the frame.
