Family Growth Spurt

An early week in July featured much change for my family. In one week my family grew by three nieces and one nephew. One of my sisters and her husband welcomed a beautiful little girl into this world. That counts for one of my nieces. Another sister and her husband were finally able to call three amazing kids theirs on that wonderful adoption day back in July.

I wanted to do something special for their family so this post is for them. It had been a long road when they began their foster parenting journey. It's been exciting to watch my sister, her husband, and these wonderful kids grow together. Super proud of you sis and I am happy to be your uncle Gabby, Lily, and Noah. (You too Adalyn!) Thanks for family growth spurt!

This mild mannered animator has been eagerly awaiting this silver screen team-up! To conceal their identities (and to keep this fan-art legit) I have changed their names. This began with The Bulk and it originally was only going to be him, Steel Guy, Thodin, and General USA. White Spouse, Rick Furry, and Opticbird came later but completed the sAvengers! (click on images to see larger... enjoy!)

May the 4th be with you.

Keep your eyes peeled. We may see The Unbelievable Bulk again...

Oh yeah, and that new chapter is... I'm getting married! WOOT!

Pencil Test - Animation with a Tortoise

This little guy originated from a small sketch in my last sketch book. He was surrounded by other attempts at who-knows-what and there he was with a simple charm about him. I decided I wanted to see him move and live. Then I thought, "what was I thinking?!"

I chose the traditional route for this animation because I want to constantly improve those skills in my career and I simply love the hand drawn medium. I had downloaded the program Pencil a while ago and proceeded to think of the personality which would drive this turtle into motion. If you have ever heard of the program Pencil, check it out! It's 'traditional animation software' which you can download for free.

It may not have been as successful as originally hoped but you don't learn unless you fail. I don't consider him a complete failure but I did learn a lot through this project. In James Baxter's podcast interview he encourages young animators to have the discipline to try and learn more by not constantly testing their animation. Just to absorb that learning experience's successes and failures.
