11 Second Club - Feb 2011

Having to shelve this so I got it to a presentable state and submitted it. Probably for the best, some of the cleanup started getting away from me. Onward to bigger and or better things!

an updated WIP of my 11 second club. simultaneously working on tweens, cleanup, and reworks. probably not the proper way to do things but it keeps things interesting :D

11 Second Club WIP Keys

Calling it a night but figured i'd do a WIP post. It's early on (in the process and the month) so feel free to critique. Just know I've barely touched the dude on the right, I just put him there to giver her a set spot to look at.

Pardon the ghosting at the beginning. For WIP posts I'll only give Flash 15 minutes to stop being a bitch and export properly. I think I tried atleast 6 times with the same result. What's up with that, Adobe? Didn't have that problem in Flash 8, now, did we?

Audio is from "Garden State". If you dont' know what 11 Second Club is you can check it out here.

edit: holy crap the beginning looks washed out on that player. i'll fix it in the next post :/

double edit: there seems to be issues viewing the video in Safari. it works fine in Firefox and Chrome, though. again, something i'll look into for the next post.

11 Second Club - character design

I got really excited when I heard this month's 11 second club clip and immediately started brainstorming how to reinterpret it. I think a lot of times when you know the source material it can be harder to break away to do something different since you already have that preconceived idea of what the actor is doing.

Anyway, after a few scrapped ideas I came to this. I haven't even started boarding yet so the design might change a little, but overall I like her. I hope I'm not biting off more than I can chew with her design. I have to keep reminding myself that it's February so I don't have quite as many days as usual.

Daily Sketch Challenge K-P and Q-V

Continuing the DSC Alphabet Challenge, I'm splitting them up into two to make them easier to see. As always, click the picture for a bigger version. Again, these are all pretty quick drawings. Usually 15-30 minutes each.

First batch the assigned characters were:
Lady Death | Megaton Man
Obsidian | Polar Boy

And the second batch (I think I'm the most happy with how these came out) we have:
Quasar | Ronin
Superman (Kingdom Come) | Terrax
Underdog | V for Vendetta
