Got the embed off of character design blog.
Title is a link back to that site which has a lot of recently added stuff I haven't seen.
Storyboards from UP, Monsters vs Aliens, etc.
UP caused the usual amount of game development burn out. Seen it so much etc I should be completely dulled to the experience. I still love everything about it.

So far our game is doing pretty well. Here at SOE we are counting on this scene being played out in 100 million homes all over the world . Maybe she should be the new star of our next ad campaign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EM2sNTfFO0g

Shot sometime around the time we did our 'pencil test" night.
Title is a link to my "animation"
Ron's animation still blows me away. I'll post those at some point as well.
Buncake had a simple but technically impressive one. Did a tough camera move.

Thanks to Rick Schmitz the cookbook has a cover ... and it might just end up being the one we go with ... you never know! Love the Creeples characters ... so much character in these characters. Replaced the fade in background, described by my editing partner, Jill as looking "a little drab, especially the muddy colored fade in the background, which makes me think of old or rotting food, rather than fresh, bright, ripe foods." Heh ... I can take a hint ... ;-)

In trying to get better on some of my art / digital art, I've checked out some offerings from Ballistic Publishing (the title of this blurb takes you there). I like the Massive Black volume best ... approachable, and you see some of the M.B. members' personal works. d'Artiste has some step-by-step pieces showing how the pieces were designed and executed (but sometimes the steps are much more like leaps of faith). Exotique4 is just as its name suggests ... but I'm not sure I'll ever be this good (or dedicated ...).
Your thoughts: appreciated.

Along with everyone else's games being released, Rockstar is proud to introduce the first trailer for its upcoming PS3 and XBOX 360 title, "Red Dead Redemption." I'm working environments and props.
The title is a link to the site carrying the trailer.
Have a go at it, y'all ....
