Strutin' my stuff

video This is really, so far, the animation that I am most proud of so far this year. :) I tried something different and went to my friends for help and pointers during this assignment rather then just relying souly on the teacher. And I kinda wished I did this more often, haha. Well, there is always the final assignment, which I am totally going to kick ass on :)
Till Next time!

Ireal


I wanted to post this up to show my character creation process a bit.
This would be Ireal, one of the characters in The grave.

When I was first creating her, I took the lazy way out and just made her completely human looking

So borrrring.

So, I decided to push my limits a bit and made her into a Naga. Now Ireal looks more interesting and a bit more developed than what I had her as before.

Fish boy and Superheros


Back in high school, one of my art projects was to create a super hero. A friend of mine came up with an awesome concept of a guy who could detach and reatach body parts. There were many dirty jokes made soon after his creation. His name was Gale, and Gale became my favorite guy character soon after (his perverted personality had nothing to do with it I swear!)

Soon after I entered collage, in the Pre-animation/Illustration program, one of the assignments was to create a Mutant. I chose to do a lionfish/human Mutant. Whom still doesn't have a name (any suggestions?)

Eventually, I decided that they should end up in the same story line.
I dont think Gale would like the fish guy very much :<

God of Souls

This week I am showing off a somewhat older character of mine. This would be the updated version of my character Naoth. He has shown up, or has been mentioned in any of the story's that I have come up with though the years with the exception of my first attempt at a comic way back in middle school.

When I first came up with him, I wanted to create a character who connected together all my stories. And since I am quite fond of the belief of reincarnation, I decided to create a god that looks after the souls of the dead, and who chooses when and were your soul is sent to when you are ready to be reincarnated.

Naoth is in charge of looking after the souls of the dead until they are ready to be sent off for reincarnation. He is considered to be neutral caring not for good or for bad, dark or light. Naoth is vastly knowledgeable and never forgets anything. He likes to play mind games with those who come into contact with him, mostly due to boredom on his part.

"If you have a soul, then more than likely Naoth knows who you are, what you are like, and where you are, and he will use that to his advantage if he wants something from you. Being alive for so long, Naoth tends to get bored quite easily, when this happens, he will go seeking someone who seems interesting, and watch them for a while. If they are deemed interesting enough, he will try to set up a contract with them. Once they stop being interesting, he kills them and their soul returns to him."









God dammit Tyson
