Tek Jansen again

So there is this interview challenge on Colbert. And I had him interview Tek Jansen. I think I need to work on giving more life to my clean up, cause it always looks better rough in flash animation wise.

Tek Jansen!!!

I AM TEK JANSEN!!

For those of you who don't know of Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen Alpha Squad 7 Adventures, I'm sorry.
They are very funny. And I just got my comic series, so in point of celebration, I drew Tek Jansen!

Tek Jansen belongs to Stephen Colbert!

Cover Band...Cover

Here is the cover to the story I am currently working on at the moment that I am totally elated about. Like..much more then normal. Might be because it's a change from my usual stuff..I hope :). But I love it! My friend Kirsten is helping me with some of the writing, sense I get writers block like crazy, but all is well, and I've got this one fleshed out completely. Though if there are to be any sequels with these two I'm not sure, as their story is a pretty open and close case.
But who knows.

Also I have yet to post some life drawing things, hands and animals and such, but I'm still working on it :).
draw draw draw :D

it's been a bit

Not that I haven't done anything, it's just I haven't done anything I find worth too much posting. Cept a few things. My senior project is technically done, hurrah. Only problem is there is no sound to it, which is most unfortunate. Got some scenes though.

video
This isn't from the film, it's just something I did. Fun times? Uploaded kinda pixely.


Character Design of Chaxx, Radjulon's tiger fellow. He makes me smile. This was ideally done to show I can have more detailed stuff and not be so cartoony, but of course he ended a bit stylized. I still like him though. I did research on indian warriors, and thus is Chaxx.












This was a doll that I made for my friend Kelli's website and cards. It suppose to have that creepy genre. I want a doll like it :(

More updates on Radj


Radj evolves all the time, Darwin has nothing on her.

I haven't posted in a while which is sad. It's not because I'm not doing anything, it's cause I'm not actually FINISHING anything :/.

I'm working on it.

I'm alive, kinda

video

I've been posting much less then usual because I've been beyond the statement of busy, and with technically nothing worth showing for it. But I pulled out one finished scene of my senior project so that ya'll can have an idea of what it's going to look like and such. The animation and color on this scene was done by me, but the line work was done by Amanda Powell.
He's burping in this scene, Amanda's working on the sound at the moment. So yay. Special effects.
Please keep in mind that I rendered this low so that it would not take up a massive amount of memory on the blog, also the video keeps pausing at the begining for some reason, which is very unsettling...

video video

I've also been working on 3D stuff again. A little better then I use to be, but still not entirely happy with the medium. I've been using Andy only, as he/she is the only model I can get to work on the time line... I figure I must be doing something wrong...
The second video is a line from Clue, besides from the slight stiffness when she's pointing out the FLAMES I'm pretty happy with this one.

if you want to do some 3D work of your own and don't have time to make a rig (or simply don't know how too) you should go here >> Highend3d.com
go to the downloads section, they are over a hundred rigs for you to play with.

Oh no! it's an Olaf!


It's an Olaf! I believe that's how you spell it. Now Olaf, in his awesomeness, is not my character, but rather, belongs in the loving care of Brent Morris, a good friend of mine, who has kindly lent him to me so that he can be laughed at in my senior film. If you look at my previous story boards, you'll see where he appears. But he is a viking, and Helena's (Jiggie's) first love. Naturally, a pirate would fall for a viking... Wheter they are in the same time frame or not, as being a fun little animation, is irrelevant, says I. Though, perhaps I'll look into one day, cause I know there are people that are bothered by that, IN FACT that is why I hate the Rudolph saves New Year movie so much, because it completley destroys the time frame of the first Rudolph movie, it just makes no sense 0.0.
Anyway, Olaf isn't mine, but I did this picture for my senior film, It's meant to be more painterly then the rest of the film, however, it just may also double as Brent's movie poster, which is also pretty humourous. So in all reality, I kinda hope during our Senior showings mine shows after Brents, just so some people can see the connection, a little inside humor.

Candy Wars Logo


My first successful work in the Logo department, successful in the fact that the people who needed it loved it, so that works for me. Professionals might hate it lol. Candy Wars is a game that SCAD-ATL students (and some GA tech I do believe) are working on. I think that's all I'm gunna say lol.

Temple Banners




So apparently as of right now, Nolan and I are the only people to submit banners for the Temple.
I wanted to go for something that captured the sequential department, while it is not my major, it is my minor, and while I'm not quite nearly as knowledgeable on it as the majors are, I do find it epically awesome. So, with the top one I wanted to go with the older batman/ super man comics that were lovingly cheese and badly colored, and I added a fun reference to my intro course, while I do not advocate Bob at all, I have to say it was fun to kill him in multiple and horrible ways.
And then the second one is just really...how my sketchbook looks in the first place, and I tried adding all the professors in there, felt a lil bad though, cause I don't really know anything about Roy 0.0. So he's just kinda....oooo'ing.
But yea, not as pretty as Nolan's, but it was fun to make them :-)
