Daily Update #2: Demo Reel and Sketches

Hey there everyone!

Today's been a pretty good day, I have about 33 seconds of animations for the reel in which I've made this month alone! Also, with the ball bounces I'm going to do soon, hopefully that'll add 7-10 seconds then if I do a character animation it'll make a it longer as well!

Just a heads up...I'm going to Disney World August 9th so my daily updates will still be going, and I'll be talking about all the awesome stuff about Disney.

Photobucket Now on to the daily doodles and animationsA cute kitten, penguin and some kids from Preston Blair book.

Some hands, a business man, a puppy, and some other stuff Lt. Dan walk- I wanted to go back and fix this guy's movements, before they were very abrupt now hopefully they are more subtle.

Daily Update #1: The Beginning

Hello Everyone!

I have decided to begin blogging EVERYDAY for the rest of the summer. Why?

Because I want to to be able to express my feelings on romance, drama, and reality TV.

LOL just kidding, the real reason is:

Because I want to keep track of what I'm doing and so I can make sure I upload my sketches and animations every day.

Everyday I draw and animate. I spend at least an hour doing both, but lots of times I get caught up doing something else so I don't post my sketches daily like I said I would do. Hopefully by having to update this daily, it'll be a kick-in-the-butt to myself to post my drawings.

Now I know I only get about 300 page views a month so not that many people will be reading this, that's ok. I'm doing this to keep track of my own progress and to maybe even become a better writer.

Stephen King, one of my favorite writers, once said that he writes everyday. 365 days of the year.

So maybe if I too write everyday, I can become a better writer than I was before I started these daily updates.

Ok, so now that we got all this settled, now let's get down to business. The stuff I did today.

I sketched some cartoon animals. And some dogs and a bird from the Preston Blair Cartoon Animation book.

Here they are:

See you all tomorrow

Demo Reel Update 7/24/12

Hello everyone! The demo reel is going great. I had some troubles mid-july but I'm right back on track for an awesome reel. Here are the NEW animations:

And I still have to do those dreaded ball bounces, AHHH.

Anyways, reels coming out August 8th (maybe even earlier :) )

I can't wait to show off this demo reel. I think I've improved a lot from my first animation tests as "CartoonyAnimator"

I've gone from:
http://youtu.be/Erfch2ebRiY and http://youtu.be/YLLgVDxbV6U

to some finally good animations in only 5 months. I'm feeling pretty good right now, but I can't forget that I still have a long way to go. I'm not even a 1/10 of the way there yet.

Back to work!
