Cintiq For The Holidays

I decided to gift myself this year and make this worthwhile purchase! I am finally getting one of these little ladies!!


I've become quite frustrated using my wacom for painting and getting the look I want. so hopefully this will help give me more control.
I wanted the smaller one so I could bring it into work and back home if needed.
Can't wait to see what I can do!

Mia Milo Murphy & Maxi - Maxi & Milo



I decided to redesign Maxi and Milo after not being happy with the other drawings.
So here is what I came up with!
Next I am going to see if I can improve on Mia and Murphy's design.

Pixel Farm Rooster



This is the Pixel Farm pre-game spot I worked on that plays before the games at Target Field.
I had re-designed our Pixel Farm rooster logo in my style for the spot.

Jungle Twist Soda - Characters



I am brining back my 'Jungle Twist Soda' idea and will be making some short commercials of different flavors. I re-designed the characters and will be refreshing the logo designs for the fake product. Here are the character sketches, trying to work out their shapes, then a colored version of one of the character rigs.

Mia And The Munsers


Getting back into drawing 'The Munsers' and adding a new character - Mia
I always loved the image from "My Neighbor Totoro" by Hayao Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli where Satsuki and Mei are waiting at the bus stop and Totoro is standing there with a leaf on his head in the rain. That was my big inspiration for this, and it might turn into a little story... :)

aPanda Studio Style Frame


Just did this quick to get it out of my head.
Trying to come up with a style frame for the logo animation.
I want to have him ride up in a jet pack then transition into the logo.
Something simple, but graphic.

The Challenge topic was "altered reality". So I painted myself as a Big Sister from Bioshock 2.
