Drew this for my niece for Christmas

My niece requested a drawing of her dog, Abbie Tail.
I decided to do it in Anime style.

She like it!

Will These Tree Be Here?

I've always been concerned about the environment and preservation efforts. With all these catastrophes, it make me wonder, in my son's generation, will these trees be standing?

The Rain made me do it!

I was sketching while it was raining and these drawings came out.

Robot walking round 1

Here's my attempt at a walk cycle. It's still rather stiff and I need to refine it more, especially the arm that is closest to the viewer. The robot's head moves a little too much right now.

Robot Throwing Ball & Catch

So here's a piece of animation I tried to do with a character and a ball. It's decent. Some parts are slightly stiff, but I think I'm getting the hang of things slowly.

Organic Modelling Round 2

This is better than the first attempt earlier. It's starting to look a lot more human. lol!

Character Animation Between 2 Emotions, Round 2

I can say it's improved since the last one. It's still stiff though. He looks like Wallace from "Wallace & Grommit"...

I found out through Facebook,(of all places) that I was nominated for Individual Achievement Category for "Production Design in a Television Production"!!! Of course this doesn't guarantee I'll win, hardly so, as competition is stiff! But, I'm excited that I even got a chance! Thanks everyone for all your support and well wishes!

Character Animation

After working on this, I see a bunch of things I'd like to change, so it's still a work in progress. But I'm actually enjoying the animation process in maya much more than I did when I tried animating in maya a few years back. I think I finally understand the process better. Keep tuned and I'll have more stuff up soon.

Creepy Eyeball!

I'm working on an eye that has a realistic depth to it, the other was like a contact lens, the pupil was on the surface of the lens.

scary head!

So, I'm trying to learn Maya and here is a model I'm trying to do of my son. It's coming along, but still has a LONG way to go! I'm hoping I can get some hair on this bald boy and do some facial animation on it once I'm satisfied with the look of this model.

Trying my hand at Z-Brush

I took a class in Z-Brush. At first I didn't like it. I'm used to modelling in Maya. But I got the hang of it towards the end and was able to produce this.

It Aint Over til the...

OK, normally, it aint over til the fat lady sings, right? But how about if they showered us all with cinnamon rolls...why not? Everyone will be the happier! I thought I'd capture my strange, yet happy thought...

Friday, April 13, 2007


I'm taking a class called "Animal Character Design" with David Coleman, he's AWESOME! I'm really trying hard to push myself towards a looser style, and much less realistic that I'm used to. We were drawing Rhinos in class and I was trying to get different styles and feelings.

Maquette for Mike

This is a maquette I did for my friend Mike Williams. He's doing an animated short of this Character named Bigelow. He's clown that wants to be a Lawyer. Thanks for being so patient with me on getting this done Mike! If you click on this image you can see the complete turnaround. (although the resolution sucks)

3D stuff

I'm sorry it's been so long since I posted anything new... I've been sooo busy at work, home and freelance! Anyhow, I'm also taking a class in Maya, and I created this Interior using the software... The Lighting is still in the works and so are the colors.

Mural of the past

I dug up this mural just for the kicks of it. It's done on a wall in a Bridal Room of a Church. It's approximately 18 wide and 8 feet tall in real life. Hope you like it!

Eaton Canyon sketch

I took a workshop with Nathan Fowkes who is an AMAZING Vis Dev guy at Dreamworks since Prince of Egypt. He taught us some great stuff during a 2-1/2 hour lecture, then let us roam out at the park to try our hand at the new wisdom he shared with us. Here's my attempt.
