Week of Dog Progression!

For as much as I absolutely love dogs I sure don’t draw them enough. So I’ve been going to the dog park with a sketchbook each day for a week to try and improve and I think I’m definitely getting there! Continue reading


Last Minute Warm-ups!

Getting into the really gritty bits of animating my final so I decided to take a break and do something fun and quick in photoshop.  Just a basic walk-cycle for practice since Pollo’s anatomy is so wacky!


Also a little sketch practice with Prof. Alexander.


Just some character designs I did based on the West African God, Anansi (the spider). I really wanted to design one of the tricksters, but pop culture has already kind of ran with Loki and Hermes, and Anansi is probably my favorite of them anyway!

And here I’ve done a few more sketches based on some stories we read, along with a couple extra characters and Anansi’s spider form. Lots of fun!


D-9 Doodles

Final designs!

And in these final weeks of clean up before graduation I have finally settled on a design that I can draw easily and consistently! Here’s some quick sketches for warm-up and the final designs! Time to animate my little cat-lizard like crazy!!



Everything is Still Awesome

Oh My G-O-S-H

 Spoiler alert: it’s been a week and I’m still drawing them.
