"The Croods": Animation Reel 2013

Its been a while since I have posted animation on my site, but here is the last bit of work that hit the big screen.  I am still trying to push myself as an animator and the Penguins of Madagascar have proven to be a big challenge.  Anyway... as I am sure I have said before, Croods was a lot of fun to work on and I am grateful to have the chance to work with some well known artists and animators.  Its always the journey that is the most memorable thing about doing this work... so hopefully I am adding to some more good memories with my current team members...

In India where Penguins now Exist…

It feels like I have been here forever, but it has only been a few months.  I must say that the Penguins are so simple in what they do, but are probably some of the most difficult characters I have had to animate in my career.

...still drawing...

Its been a while since I posted drawings but I have a bunch of things that I have been testing out.  Luckily I brought my art supplies with me here in India (not everything though).  I plugged my electric pencil sharpener into the wall and the voltage just blew the motor up.  Yeah yeah.. I know, but I thought I could get away with just a real quick zip on the pencil.  Most of the time I spend creatively outside of work has been writing, but I make sure to always give my fingers a workout.  Anyway.. here are a few things that I have been playing with.

...looking good Mr. Hublot...

I looooooong while back I posted a link to the teaser of Mr Hublot that is being created by the talented people at Zeilt Productions.  This is one of the latest renders from the short that will be coming out soon.  I was fortunate enough to work on the film and I think its going to be something really cool.  I am a big fan and follower of the sculptor Stephane Halleux's (check him out if your not familiar) work who the character and world are based from.  This was kinda how I found that the short was being created...  If this image is a taste of how the film is going to look, it should be some nice eye candy.
