Woman In Boxes

For years I would draw the nude female figure within the confines of a postit. Now that I use Flash to draw all the time, I thought, why not give that concept a try with that software.

Action Show Developement

Vanguard Force is a pitch Alain Matz and I have been working on since the spring. The inspiration is the Japanese anime from the 70's Gatchaman, or what it's more popularly known in the U.S. as Battle of the Planets.
This is Gunnar, an ex-top gun fighter pilot and the leader of Vanguard Force and flys a multi-purpose fighter jet that can go almost out of Earth's atmosphere and even can submerge into deep oceans.
Signy is the ex-champion race car driver and weapons expert who drives the most fastest and powerful muscle car on earth. The car even has a boost/flying system that KITT would be jealous of.
Vidar, a freed lab rat who can cyberneticaly link with his super cycle. Not only is the cycle packed with the latest armament, if launched off of a cliff, a para-sail deploys to help soften a hard landing.If a vehicle could be the star of a show, then this bad-girl is it. A battle truck that is both a refined cutting edge technological machine, and the business end of sledge hammer necessary for the futuristic battles in store for this vehicle. The driver is Lugg, who I'm still developing and will post soon. I don't want to forget to mention that all three vehicles can fit in the back of the Battle Truck and will have interesting and unique was each vehicle can launch from the back. Imagine the cabin of the truck, not unlike the bridge of a space ship, with Lugg at the helm and Gunner in the command chair.

The Big Field Trip Intro Animation

I animated the intro the the Gym Partner special "The Big Field Trip" using Flash MX in 2006.

I was already on the crew doing cleanup using Flash, and I was given the opportunity to work with the director to create the special intro for the episode.

The director for the intro was John Mcintyre and he wanted the animation to feel like the 60's Pink Panther animated intros.

It was even featured on on Monday, the day after I posted it on my youtube site.

Note: the sound sync is a tad off and I don't know how to correct for it. sorry.

Second Post

I wont be this systematic with the titles and descriptions. I'm just testing out to see if I can figure out my way around a blog before I start going full bore.

This is my alien Character Xixa. She lives on the planet Xylem and her best friend is a pink tentacle monster named, well, Pink Tentacle Monster. I created her by accident back in '05 and

she seemed to have grown in popularity, on Deviant Art ever since.

Here are a few rough sketches of her from around that time:

That is all for now. More soon!
