Working with video reference

Decided this was so technical and long-winded, it belonged on a technical and long-winded blog. So I made one. :)

Working With Video Reference

It's a better place to put this kind of stuff. I'll link to my little articles as I write them, that way I don't derail this space with dry technical stuff.

Progress

Sooner Con. I did the two lower panels from- 1pm to about 4 pm. Jack Kirby could have done an issue of The Howlling Commandos in the same amount of time. 
Talked to artist Mark Texeira for a short time. Showed him how to do animated GIFs in Photoshop. 
He was wildly appreciative of the new knowledge.
Gave me his cell number and his email and a signed bookmark.
I'm OK in Mark's book.

Giant Robot Outake:

 
This was the original fake sequel page at the end of the story, (adapted after Rick's suggestion).  When I decided to write a real sequel, it got swapped out for the deep-sea diver page.

To Celebrate Tom's Cosmic Triumph

Had to post something to honor Tom's incredible book. As a point of encouragement, Stuart Ng ordered 10 "Brushpen Breakfast" books. We came up with a scheme to put a drawing into each one and sell them for $20 with the qualifier, "Signed with Drawing!"

So I sat at a pizza place in El Segundo and did some brushpens of passers-by.

(We've been on the road so I've been too out of touch. I'll get back on it when I get home next week)

 As soon as the video processes, I'll make an unlisted video of my new job.

E3 Blast From The Past

E3 running this last week reminded me of the days when I was excited enough about the games industry to go to the convention.  That's us Rick, back in the BlueSky days.

PLEASE don't make me beg . . .

I've heard from a couple of NON-TAGsters, but Ellis is the only TAGster who has given me feedback about this year's Artist Alley at SDCF.  And he won't even BE there, probably!  :(
... although hope springs eternal.

I cannot give you guys what you want, unless I know what it is that you want.  Registrations are already active, but AA plans are at a complete standstill.  YOU can change that by replying to the e-mail I sent out last week.  I'm begging y--
Oh, dammit ...

I start at AVIS tomorrow morning

I'll let you know how my carshuttling job goes.
This is a sample I've been invited to do for Marvel Comics.
Since they'll not see it as pencils on paper, I'll do some revision in photoshop that it needs. 
Like that Gun needing to be lowered into the panel a bit.
Needs some cursory backgrounds.
You may remember the other partial page. I'll try and finish that by Tuesday.
