Starting Momentum

I’ve been in the preplanning process for a very long time for several projects.  I’ve finally started animating again. My goal is to get enough good material for a demo reel.  I’ve also recently downloaded the unreal editor.  My goal is to make a free to play sample level a game.  It’ll be a sample for a game to kickstart that’ll be either stand alone rpg or mmo that mixes alice in wonderland styles with the best of pastamancy. The final product will depend on what I can scrounge together for a team and for server space.  This is very rough so far so it’ll be a while until full concept art and planning designs will be up.

In the mean time, thanks for sticking with my blog!  I’m going to make sure to update once a week.  Even if all I have to show for it is… well… this!

Here are the profiles for the 3 main characters of the new series I’m working on: “The Amazing Mr. Meowsky”. They give a broad overview of the characters and a turnaround with expression close-ups.
I know I haven’t shared too much about the project one here, so hope this helps!Brody_Character_Profilexl-01

update 5-20

Hi all! I’ve been busy lately with some necessary life stuff. I’m making !y goal to regularly post on my websites. I’ve been rolling around a series idea that I used on a pitch to nickelodeon. It didn’t make the top 3 or so, but I’ m going to bdo more with it. I’m not sure if I want to make it as a web comic or a series of animated shorts. It’s “The Amazing Mr. Meowsk”. I’m going to be going a little more mad science and horror theme than the original concept. Also, I’m in the process of making a 2D demo reel and have some concept work done for a 3D action plarfom RPG.

Well I’ve been taking a break from the land of flash puppets lately and am planning a few hand drawn animations.  For this, I’ve been doing character reference and pose work for the main characters.

The first animation is going to be a normal-ish girl going to a furry convention for the first time.

The Next animation will be about a mouse who draws pictures and the come to life off of the page.

Here it is in all of it’s glorious-ness. It’s been 1 year of off an on working on this, and I’ve learned a lot in that year about animaiton and where I want to eventually go with it. But for now, sit back and enjoy the fun, silly animaited shenanigans.

The straight through animation can be found here:
Ponyville Tryouts on Youtube

I also created an interactive version of it, which can be found here:

It’s not much, but it was a bunch of guesswork as to positioning of bodies. Hope you like it!

This one’s pretty short, but not bad.

This is a simple raven motion study I just did, with the motion of flight.

Here’s another quick animation in at least a couple to come and hopefully, it’ll help with future animations.

Well with the print and play out and the print on demand version of Ponyfight scheduled to release as soon as we get the proofs, here’s some of my favorite Item assets that I did.

AssetReview-01While it’s not quite as animated as the ponies are, I’m still pretty proud of all the illustrator work I put in to make this game a reality.

 

Just a quick update

Hey everyone! This is just a quick working update.  Since Ponyfight?! Is completed and I haven’t been able to find stable work yet, I’m going to be looking into getting support to go back to school this spring.  I’ll also be attempting a quick animation a week kind of deal.  It’s been a long, tough road trying to break into the animation industry after my em3:trainingU247 job, but hopefully all my work with tutorials, game design, and the internship will pay off.
