Wow!!!  That was a long hiatus from the blog scene!  But I'm back....then I'll disappear for a few weeks and then I'll be back.  I'm just letting you guys know because this seems to happen quite a bit, but for good reason.

As some of you know, I have been at Blue Sky Studios for the past 5 months working my arse off making a little move called Ice Age 4: Continental Drift (coming to a local theater near you July 13th, 2012) GO SEE IT!!  Check out the new trailer which I know most of you probably have seen:


If some of you didn't know I was working up here...... I got a job at blue sky!  (old news

The new news is...


I don't know how that happened, but it did.  :D I can't tell you guys how honored and excited I am to be a part of  such a talented group of animators.  Unfortunately, this means I had to leave California and say goodbye to some people I truly will miss, but in the end it was the right choice and a start of a new chapter.  I can't wait to grow as an individual and with this new family. 

So, like I said, I will be disappearing for a few weeks because I have to wrap up on IA4.  Then I'll be back on the blogosphere posting some new art related things.  Thanks for stopping by!


First Rough Pass

Well hello there!  Yea, that was a bit of a hiatus in posts.  Been busy with work, but I'm back and my goal is to be consistent in the next couple of weeks.  Motivate me to get this shot done.

Just another update.  Essentially my first spline pass with some texturing.  No updates with the guy, just working on the acting beats of the women.  I've got plenty to do, but it's getting there.  I'll have something new for you guys next week.


Blocking Plused

Oh Yeaaaa!  We're on a roll!

As promised (a little late, but better late then never) an update.

My main focus was the acting beats and the eye direction for the female character (Hannah), but at the same time still trying to keep it simple and acting within the poses.  It's coming along, but so much to do.  Next step: THE DREADED SPLINGING PASS!!!  Stay tuned


It's Alive..... IT'S ALLIIIIVVVVVEEEEE!!! (for now)

Hey Everyone!

It's been pretty crazy at the o'l R&H for quite sometime.  Finished up on my marketing work for Hop and went on to some DVD extra's which will most likely appear on a later post, but for now.........

                                               Personal Work!!!

It's just the first pass of blocking, so there's not much going on right now.  My main focus is to keep the poses simple and clear.

This shot has been quite a challenge so far.  I've gone through three blocking passes to get to this point, but I have learned a butt load doing it.  I'll hopefully post on a regular basis (once a week) and bring this blog back to life.  Stay tuned to your local broadcasting...



Hey Guys!

It's been forever, but I have something to post! (party time) Here are a few things I've been working on at work. They are simple poses for promotional stuff, but it was fun to do.

This is but just a taste. I will have more to come (hopefully) if they post them online. Stay tuned. (Also, if you want to see the other characters on the show, check out this site: http://www.tridimagine.com/2011/02/hop-imagenes-de-los-personajes-hop.html )
