Happy Friday Guys!!  Last night we had a company holiday party and i came in feeling like i really didn't want to do anything.... So i just threw this little animation together.  It took about 20 minutes.  Can't wait to go home this week and see the family!

Speed animation 53

Good Morning Guys!!  Today is our holiday party at work, and it's also college night right?  Oh also i think that finals should be about over right?   Well i thought that i'd celebrate the thursday with a little bit of foreshadowing for some of you out there.  Don't be too thirsty for the liquor, but still have fun!  This test took about 40 minutes.

Speed Animation 52

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's a week away from Christmas and i thought that i'd do something a little present themed.  Just something simple.  A co worker of mine wanted me to animate a kid getting a gift. Sorry Anthony, i didn't want to animate too much subtle stuff haha.  This test took about 30 minutes.

Speed animation 51

Hey guys!! so i got a little over my head with todays test.  For Transformation Tuesday i did another morphing animation, but i don't think that this is as successful as yesterdays.  I wish that i had more time to work on this but the ending part is a little rushed.  Still had fun doing this, just took a little too long.  This took me about an hour and 20 minutes.  plus i got a late start on this test because there was a lot going on in the office this morning.

Speed animation 50

Happy Monday everyone!!  Today is the 50th speed animation!!  a small milestone that is pretty exciting because i never imagined that i'd get 50 out and be consistent.  here is something similar to what i did while i was in school, but while i was in school it took me about a week to get something like this animated.... ive definitely grown in this process and i've had fun, as well as just tried to grind through some of these daily.  I hope that you guys have enjoyed watching these!  Here is to many many more days of animation!!  

This test took about 55 minutes.

Speed animation 49

Happy Friday!!  I had to come into work early for a meeting, so my schedule was thrown off a little bit.  A little tired today...  so i had to split this test up when i got in early and after the meeting.  this test took me about 40 minutes.  I had other ideas for this test but i decided to simplify it.  Have a great weekend everyone!!

Speed animation 48

Hey there guys.  i've really been stumped on things to animate in the morning due to time constraints, but here is some more punishment animation because i've been kind of brain dead lately.  thinking about other things has really taken away from my art and has really made my drawings suffer.  I haven't been comfortable drawing for the last couple weeks.... I guess i'm digesting a rat as a teacher of mine would say... this test took me 50 minutes.  A lot of drawings, but fun animation.


Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Speed animation 47

Hi Guys, so today i decided to do some smear animations.  plus i didn't know what to animate... so maybe if i banged my head against my desk i'd get some ideas.  I had a lot of fun doing this one trying to play with some spacing and texturing the timing a bit.  todays test took me about 45 minutes.


Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Speed animation 46

Good Morning!  Here is another test with my character.  I'm starting to get used to drawing her.  More subtle action, but trying to push poses a little more.  I still think that i can push poses even more, i'll just have to do it on the next test.  this took me a bit longer than usual, it took me about 45 minutes.  


Monday, December 9, 2013

Speed Animation 45

Good morning!!  More with my character.  I think that i goofed a little on the lip sync or even hitting the right phonemes/mouth shapes.  I also should have pushed the poses a bit more... but meh.  Time to get to work.  This test took about 40 minutes give or take.  A co worker of mine was talking to me for a bit about "Frozen" because i've been watching the "let it go" sequence all morning again.  Anyway... Have a good day people!!


Friday, December 6, 2013

Speed animation 44

Happy Friday All!! Working more with a character of mine.  It's been a little hard.  but i think that i'm finding her personality and the way that she would move.  Just getting to know her a bit more,  so here is more of her.  this test took about 45-50 minutes.  a lot more drawings than i anticipated and before i started i was thinking of even making this test longer!  Have a great weekend everyone!!


Thursday, December 5, 2013

Speed Animation 43

So I thought that i'd rehash an older character that i came up with a couple months ago.  So i'm going to be doing some more exploration with her.  Also to just get used to drawing her more because I stopped working on her for a while.  This test took about 30 minutes.

Speed animation 41

Hello and good morning!  Today is tuesday and you know what that means!!  It's Transformation Tuesday!  i hope you guys get your workout in today.  I will be going on my lunch break.  This test took me about 30 minutes.  faster than i thought it would but i cheated the animation a bit.  I'm still feeling a bit sluggish from all of the traveling from the weekend.  I hope i'll be all recovered by tomorrow.

Speed animation 40

Hey so sorry i didn't post on friday... i was really busy with family and also trying to finish 11 second club for this month and stupid me... i missed the deadline... it's been a crazy weekend since thanksgiving going all over the place from santa barbara to la to back to santa barbara to sf then back to santa barbara to la... lots of driving and traveling did not allow me to do enough work on my shot... so i'm a little disappointed in myself... but i found out how fast i can actually work in 3d.  it was a good experience and i'm looking forward to doing more work on my current shot.  Here is today's speed animation... it's a really quick one.  took about 15 minutes.  I'm just dead tired today.


Thursday, November 28, 2013

Speed animation 39

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Still getting the animation in on thanksgiving... I hope all of you are eating a lot and enjoying time with your families.  This test took about 20 minutes.  pretty simple test.  Now back to doing some of my own work and eating!!

Speed animation 38

Happy Wednesday everyone, tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Today i wanted to do something else but i felt like i just wasnt into that idea.  so i decided to do this.  I feel like i could have pushed a bit more but whatever.  I kind of wish that we could animate more like this at our studio but i guess it's not as cost effective...  It's WomanCrushWednesday.  Who do you have a crush on?  this took me about 45-50 minutes.


Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Speed Animation 37

Hey there again!!  So i missed a day last week so i thought that i'd do two today.  this one took me about an hour because it was in between shots and whatever so i didn't really keep track of the time.  this is a continuation of the first one today.  i probably should have pushed this one a little more but oh well.  Next time....


Speed animation 36

Tuesday!! One more day and time for turkey and family!!  I'm excited to see my family.  Haven;t seen them in a while.  Today i was a little lost on what i wanted to do... stayed up late last night working on some of my own work.... so i thought that i'd entertain myself a little bit today.  it's nice when you can laugh at your own work.  I hope that you guys can laugh at this with me.  this is how i feel too... need to push myself more in the gym.  this test took about 35 minutes.

Speed animation 35

Hello and happy monday everyone!  Getting back into art again after a weekend of recording music... i wanted to get more music done, but it just didn't work out that way.  but time to get back to what my real bread and butter is.  Today i had a hard to trying to figure out what i wanted to do because i'm still frustrated with my drawings.  I was talking to a friend this weekend and we were talking about pushing my animation more so i decided to do some smears.  it was pretty fun to push.  i still need to push more, but this is what you guys get for today.  This took about 50 minutes due to trying to think of what to do.


Friday, November 22, 2013

Speed animation 34

Happy Friday! I've been writing music lately and i've really been getting into it.   Going back home this weekend to do some recording.  trying to finish an album that my friends and i started.  still having issues drawing... i have no idea what is going on with me... Dangit!! I forgot to turn the smoothing up again... jeez....  this is another 30 minute test.


Thursday, November 21, 2013

Speed animation 33

Hey guys, sorry i missed yesterday.  I had a rough tuesday night and didn't come into work til really late so i needed to catch up on work.  i'll try to make it up if i can in between shots today, but i feel pretty brain dead... and i feel like i can't draw today... i tried to start 3 different animations and i just couldn't draw what i wanted to so this is what i came up with.  this one took me 45-50 minutes.  kind of long for a shot like this... meh...  vector points... wonderful.. forgot to turn smoothing back up...

Speed Animation 32

Good morning all.  Today is a back workout day.  I'm not the best at doing pull ups... but i'm getting stronger.  Need to work on my lats a lot more it seems.  I had fun doing this test though, i ended up needing more drawings than i thought....  It took me about 45 minutes.

Speed animation 31

Hey Guys!! Happy Monday and welcome back from the weekend!  This weekend was really eventful with going to CTN-X and all.  It was a great experience going there just to check out everything this time rather than show work and stress out.  It was still just as tiring, but I got a chance to meet some awesome artists and purchase some cool books!  I didn't eat very well though... shame on me...  this is kind of how the weekend went.  And i feel like i grew and gained 100 pounds.... this test was actually really fun!! Took 30 minutes.

Hello and good morning!! CTN has started so i won't be able to post over the weekend.  But happy Friday and have a fun weekend!  Here is my speed animation for today to celebrate 'Flex Friday'  This test took me 30 minutes.

I didn't have time to get out a speed animation before work today because I had a lot of work to get done, so I saved it for tonight.  I wanted to do a 3d shot, and i think that i'm going to start doing 3d more often.  today i had a lot of fun.  I wanted to limit myself to 2-3 hours of work to see how far i can get with a dialogue shot and acting.  I think that it's starting to look solid.  time to polish!  I'll post more progress soon!

I'm tired today.... went climbing last night and couldn't get up to workout this morning.. now i have to workout during my lunch break.  Shoulder day today!! Grow shoulders Grow!! Need to get some boulder shoulders.  Today's test took about 35 minutes... had some dumb things going on with flash... just my own ignorance...

Speed animation 27

Good morning!! So still going strong with the fitness, but i don't feel as successful with today's animation.  I wanted to try and keep things a little more consistent but the padded bar for the leg extension machine didn't work with a symbol.  it's ok i guess... just a learning experience.  But today was another leg day and i really want my quads to grow!! Just gotta keep working, just like i'm doing these speed animations.  This one took about 30 minutes.  


Monday, November 11, 2013

Speed Animation 26

Good Morning!! Today is a Chest and Tri's day.  if you can't get to the gym just put yourself on the floor and do a crap ton of push ups!! I went and did some fasted cardio this morning and i'm going to try out the gym at work today and do some weights.  Today this took me about 30 minutes.  I think that my tests are all getting to be around the same time.  I am starting to get better with layering and just getting faster with my animation.   Until then....


Friday, November 8, 2013

Speed animation 25

Wow i've made it to 25!! who'd have thought that i'd keep this up?? well... today was a bit rushed and this is how i feel what i do cardio.  I hate cardio!! it's really a boring way to work off excess calories... bleh.. if only i had a super fast metabolism.  This test kind of looks like skipping though...  this one took about 30 minutes.  Happy Friday!!  I get to go to Disneyland tomorrow!! WHOOOOOO!!

Speed animation 24

Got to work a little late today so i needed to just make this one quick.  Today is a bi and back day, I need to make my biceps grow.  Especially my left arm to keep the symmetry there.  CT Fletcher says to command your muscles to grow, so that's what I've been doing lately.  I think doing these fitness animations have been motivating me more to hit to gym as well.  This one took about 35 minutes.  It's pretty simple.

Speed Animation 23

Thank you to everyone that wished me happy birthday!  I really appreciate all of the love.  I'm usually as enthusiastic as this animation shows for things like my birthday.  This was my first birthday that I didn't really have too many people around me that i am close with to celebrate with, but it was still a good birthday.  I got a huge ice cream cupcake from work and i cheated eating all day.  back to the grind and here is today's animation.  Thanks Everyone!!  This took about 30 minutes.  Super tired today...

Speed Animation 22

Hey Guys!! Today i worked shoulders.... trying to get those boulder shoulders.  Had a pretty good workout today.  So i think that i may dedicate this whole month to workout animations.  just depends on how i feel.  But here is todays animation.  It took me about an hour today.  I was trying to organize layers.... bleh... whatever!!!

Speed animation 21

Hey all.  i decided to take a bit of a break over the weekend because it was pretty stressful.  I got to see gravity, which is an awesome movie!! I think that i may go back and see it in 3d.  I also got to work out over the weekend and yesterday was leg day.... so today my legs are pretty much dead... I wish that i could squat more.  I wish that my knee would hold up better... but i do what i do... this one is inspired by my dead legs.  it took about 45 minutes.


Friday, November 1, 2013

Speed animation 20

So Today i got to actually do some 3d work since i had to stay home from work... Long story... But I thought that i'd try out and do something similar to an earlier test  that i did in 2d.  it is definitely different working in 3d again.  I need to build up my speed.  this test took me about 2.5 hours.  just trying to shake off the rust.

Happy Halloween everyone! Today i wanted to have a couple of monsters walk across the screen.  i wanted to do one more but i didn't have time.  I hope all of you have a fun and safe Halloween.  This one took me about an hour.

speed animation 18

So i went Climbing last night, and i was inspired to do a climbing animation.   It's still rough because i have some work to do.  But here it is.  Ill go back and clean it up later.  Took longer than i thought because i was trying to get movements and weight correct, it took about an hour.  I think that are still some things to work on but that can come in another test down the road.

Hey guys, so i had a pretty crazy weekend.  sorry for the lack of posting. and yesterday i was exhausted and busy with work so i didn't get a chance to do an animation.  I danced danced and danced all weekend.  2 weddings!! I'd like to say congrats again to Becky and Nick, as well as to Jose and Maricela!! Super fun weddings, and it was great to see everyone again!  I was inspired by the weekend and i'm still dancing.

It's friday!! Just using the same character from yesterday to show some enjoyment that it's the last day of the week and i get to go home this weekend and see everyone!! pretty excited!!  this one took about 45 minutes.  Thanks for checking it out!!

Here is another character of mine.  He usually accompanies my other character.  here he is, and i just wanted to show a little bit of personality and test him out.  I haven't animated him yet, so this first time is alright.  still searching for some movements and personality traits, but this is what i have for today.  this took about an hour in total.


Wednesday, October 23, 2013

speed animation 14

Working more with my character trying to show some pep with this walk cycle.  speed is increasing everyday.  I'm not a big fan of walk cycles but i thought i'd do this to try and get some personality with her.  this one took about 35 minutes total.  i maybe could have taken a little more time to work on some more inbetweens.  oh well.  maybe next time... 


Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Speed animation 13

Hey Guys, I know that i haven't posted for a couple of days.  I've been kind of busy.  work was busy yesterday, but here is a test of a character that i'm planning on using for a 2d shot later on.  working on some movement stuff.   I'm getting faster for sure.  This one only took about 40 minutes with rough and clean up.  i'm pleased with my progress!!

Good afternoon on a great saturday!!  Pokemon week is over... but i guess technically it's still the same week... i'm moving on to new things.  working on more spontaneous tests and concentrating on new things.  I actually animated a lot of different things today but i didn't like any of them, so i deleted them and did this test.  it's saturday!! go party tonight!!  BUT NO TWERKING!!

Speed animation 11

More pokemon this week!  I experimented with doing fire and concentrated on weight and overlap.  I don't know if i'm satisfied, i think that i need to study fire more.  this one took about 1.5 hours.  i had fun though.  Happy Friday everyone!!

Another late post!  Busy at work today, but here is one that i'm pretty satisfied with.  just a quick test playing with some effects.  played with some timing.  I'm no master at effects, but i kind of like it.  this took about 35 minutes.  pretty simple stuff.

speed animation 09

So Today is a late post because i've had a lot of work to do.  I thought that i'd simplify things today because i felt like i was getting a little too fancy.  Just doing a Flying cycle with Pidgeotto.  today i focused more on weight in the wings because i imagine pidgeotto to be a bigger animal.  this one took about an hour.  


Tuesday, October 15, 2013

speed animation 08

Tried something different in the way that i clean up today.... didn't work as well as i wanted it to... I'll have to rethink a strategy if i want to do my animation this way again.  not too much time to work on this today either.  the colors are kind of weird on here too.... oh well


Monday, October 14, 2013

Speed animation 07

Hey Guys! Happy Columbus Day!!  So i got pokemon over the weekend and I am certainly addicted again.  and today being columbus day i thought it'd be interesting to think about what kind of pokemon columbus would have.  I think he'd have a water pokemon, but honestly not a squirtle.... probably something more scary looking like a tentacruel or something.. but i did a squirtle in my animation.


Friday, October 11, 2013

Speed animation 06

Today i had some fun with extra things.  more action to finish off the week.  Happy Friday!!


Sketch dump

I just got the blogger app on my phone!!  So now if can post sketches that I do on the go!! I've been drawing a lot lately and having a lot of fun!! It's so nice to draw for fun. School stressed me out so I didn't draw as much but now that I'm out of school I find myself doing more artwork than ever lately. It's really interesting to me but invigorating. Here are some sketches that I've done while on summer and in la.
