Heres a few of the backgrounds Ill be using for my new short. I dont usually draw landscapes or backgrounds but these seemed to turn out alright.. I quite enjoyed drawing these. I havent used Illustrator for awhile so it was good to refresh my memory. Thanks for stopping by!

This one is my favorite so far. There is going to be a character dropping in the foreground in this scene. I really paid close attention to compostion on this one. I framed the two figures with the trees and placed the flowers so they point to the characters as well.

Im changing the name of my blog

Ive decided that I will change the name of my blog to, "The Gui Spot". Sorry all you Ryan G's Cartoon Crap fanatics, You'll just have to dip into the "Gui Spot" from now on.

Bouncy Possum

Heres the crazy possum character from my new short. I havnt got a name for him yet. These are some keys from a scene where he's falling from a tree branch with his tail wrapped around it. He falls and recoils back up. More to come!

New short in the works

Thats right. Production has begun on my new short. Storyboards are done, and Im laying out scenes, drawing backgrounds and animating a few scenes and im really excited to see how this thing turns out. Im going to be drawing everything by hand and then scanning the drawings and making a little flash movie. Our classes at school are only 11 weeks long and Im just starting this right now. That leaves me roughly 6 weeks to finish this bad boy. Wish me luck!

Heres one of the stars of this short.

Bosko wave and Side step

I thought Id give the Bosko wave a try from John K's Animation post. Man, what a cool little bouncy, fun guy to animate!

Heres a little side step project from my class. We had a beginning and end pose given to us and applied it to our own characters. We then had to do some funky inbetweens. Hope you enjoy! Later.

Otis and Tommy Two Horn

I drew this a few months ago and am just now getting around to posting it. These are some characters I created for my Drawing and Characterization class. They're gangstas. Some of the color got a little muddy with the scan, but you get the idea.. Thanks for coming by! Later.
