I love the weekends!

It's one of the only days of the week I can sit in front of the computer and draw, no pressure attached... just pure fun!

Another Alien to join my alien series and a short phase walk-through.



Sketch Book Number 1

These are some of the sketches I drew in my first sketch book... trying making some mecha styles crafts...



This is a very cute and entertaining movie done by Alfredimageworks.

Check it out!



Going Back To Basics

This short film shows very beautifully the 12 principles of animation (which I also had the privilege to teach some time ago).

So here are the first 3 alien characters I've invented using a new technique of working on a photo reference created using an app called WEBCAM TOY on Chrome which let me have a lot of  fun experimenting the many options of creating cool images.

What do you think? Do you like it?


I've seen it a few days ago and thought I should share with you and post it but never found the time to do it... so... here is a very nice video reference made by Disney's animator - Bobby Pontillas.
I remember watching his wonderful work while he was still a student at AM, and loving it.

I really love the way he's thinking who is the character he needs to animate, what it feels and how it should react, giving it the body language and gestures of a little girl (and I won't be surprised to know he watched his niece or daughter to get some ideas :)

Enjoy his work!
