Life Drawing at Dr Sketchy'sWent to Dr Sketchy's in Boston today, and had a great time - take a look!
The last of the 5 minute poses, drawn normally
First 10 minute pose - "Draw something seasonal" for a Macy's gift card - so I drew the model as a Macy's Parade float
Second 10 minute pose - it was clearly a Captain Morgan pose, so altering the costume was in order!
First 20 minute pose. Decided to try a number of other characters matched to the pose.
2nd 20 minute pose. Regular drawing, character match drawing, and caricatured drawing.
For this pose someone mentioned "Don't forget the McDonalds!" (meaning the coffee), so I drew her as Ronald McDonald
We Animate Things - the Studio of the FutureWhile I look for a new job to replace the one that disappeared earlier this year, I've been working on a new animation project, and actually working with other people on it. This is a first step towards eventually assembling an animation studio, under the label We Animate Things, or WAT.
Now, most animators I know have dreams of someday starting their own studio, and "doing it right, darn it"! But what I have in mind is a little different, specifically because most of the differences WAT will have are based on the fundamental business/organization/financial model of the company - NOT on the method or subject of the cartoons it will produce.
We Animate Things is a worker-cooperative.
Put simply, the company is owned collectively by its employees (or member-owners), at a one-person-one-vote level of control. I originally stumbled upon this form of business trying to answer the question "What if I don't want to make a non-prof
Open for commissions!Just a reminder, I'm open for commissions, seeing as I have to somehow afford to drive across the country to find a job.
Rough 2D: $50/sec (screentime)
Flash/3D: $40/sec (screentime, not counting puppets/bkg)
Clean 2D: $100/sec (screentime)
CHARACTER ART (Illustration)
Sketch still: $20 (+50%/add'l char)
Inked/Flat color: $40 (+50%/add'l char)
Full color rendered: $80 (+50%/add'l char)
With background: $120 (+50%/add'l char)
Once I've accepted a commission, you can pay me via paypal at:
Donations/support money accepted as well, if you don't want art and just wanna throw money at me. ;D
Keep in mind, potential employers see the artwork that I post to this site, so I won't take commissions that I wouldn't feel comfortable showing them.
Because Everyone Wants CommissionsHey everyone! I occasionally get requests for art, or folks asking if I'm "open for commissions". To be honest, I don't get enough paid work to be "closed" for commissions, so I'm certainly up for it, if you all feel like throwing money at me!
That said, a LOT of people want animation from me. I'm willing to take animation commissions, just please understand that animation takes a very...
...long time. And in order for me to spend that time making something you'd like, I have to charge accordingly.
We're talking weeks to months for animation, where static art takes hours to days.
So, here's some approximate commission prices, tho' keep in mind that for animation, I'll probably need to work up a custom quote or something, since each project is significantly different.
Flash/3D character build: $1600-$3000 depending on complexity
Rough 2D character animation: $50/sec (screentime)
Flash/3D character animation: $40/sec (screentime, not counting puppets/bkg)

The Incredible Machine (iOS) - TrailerThis is an animated trailer I made last year when I was working at Playdom, for the iOS release of The Incredible Machine.
They ultimately decided to use a different trailer, but did give me permission to share this as part of my portfolio, so there ya go.
The 2D animation for this trailer was created in Toon Boom Animate, and then assembled with the rest of the animation and effects in Adobe Flash.
Video is © 2012 Disney Interactive
Designed and animated by me
The Incredible Machine (iOS app) has been retired and is no longer supported by Disney Interactive.

Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S

Vanguard, Chapter 1: DuncanDuncan's Journal: Day 1288
I consider myself a good man. I respect women, elders, my equals, and the dead. I say a morning prayer, and an evening one. Hell, I even thank the gods for a meal, instead of immediately chowing down in the voracious manner as the other soldiers here do. By all logical means, I should be in paradise. No really, not just because I'm a good man, but also because I should be dead by now. So I ask myself: why, oh gods up there, have I ended up in hell?
1288 days. 1288 days of my life have been spent in this misery, and I'm beginning to lose faith in the glory I was promised. Some of the rookies still live in their ignorant bliss, but I've lived long enough to realize that there's not much glory to find here. “Sing the songs of glory and march into battle—-join The Crusade today!”. Such were the words of the posters The Crusade has spread all over The Mortal Realm. Gullible fools practically stand in line for these songs of glory that th
