Firekicker- Tuseday doodle

Focusing on the ventriloquist story Joined Together for this 4 day break.
Start the New Year with a project that represents work I want to do in the style I want to do it.
I will micro niche in 2015.
Firekicker is a doodle. Not related.

Group picture I got roped into taking. The dark haired lady is Charly.
It was her last day.
She got a nice state gov job.
I enjoyed talking to her.
She was Apache-Mexican, lived a lot in New Zealand, big film buff.
A lot better to talk to than yakking with the other goofs about sports.
She gave me a bundle of her daughter's art supplies.
Some good stuff.

Sega questions

From Ken Horowitz. I think Rick mentioned his contacts with him. 
These are the questions I'll answer for his book.

1.       - How did you become involved in Jurassic Park?  I wasn't
2.       - How much did you prepare to create art for the dinosaurs? Did you have to do any extra research? may tell what I know about other people working. Trips to Stan Winston studio that I didn't take for instance
3.       - I've read that BlueSky strove to make the animation as lifelike as possible, and that paleontologist Dr. Robert Bakker dissected a chicken to discuss dinosaur anatomy. Is this true? Did it help you with your animation? Never heard that
- Rick Schmitz told me that you created much of the concept art for Vectorman. How did you become involved? cattle call
4.       - What did you use as your inspiration for the characters and environments? art directors
5.       - How much of your concept art made it into the final game? none
6.       - Were you involved in the sequel? yes. Used the Karl Robillard system for some mini game animation
7.       - Why did you leave BlueSky? Sony hired me for a week

Commission 2 done

Took a fragment of UP concept art, the clouds, scaled it way up, filtered it, motion blur and a couple of other bits of dabbling.
Good easy background for this commission.
Tried to use some of what would be the ambient light mixing with the rest of the color.
Still a little careless.

Day after Christmas-I'll be drawing horses

Plan to draw 20 horses.
Horse drawing school diploma tomorrow.
 This is on the dash of Scott Sackett's car. Not in the museum.
 8 tons of white marble. From a 31 ton block.
Known as the Canyon Princess- not Snow Princess

 Charles Russell doing a sculpt of super deformed Indian mystic who gives all the animals their wild coloration.







in from the night herd
The original is awesome-super subtle






 I was drawn to copy mostly Remington.
Some great, great art.
Including a Jeremy Lipking piece.
Dean Cornwell. Rockwell.
Worth a return visit for sure.
