Ninja Anim

I put this process sheet together for an article on Mark of the Ninja but it wasn't used so I'm posting it here. Basically the red roughs are the keys as drawn in Flash. Then for purposes of getting rough anim in the game quickly I tightened up my keys and filled them grey so they'd read over the bg's. The colored versions are the end product after being built in Flash. Later!

Suger Rush Logo

Hey guys! This is   a logo sequence I animated for a game called Suger Rush we were making nearly 4 years ago now. I uploaded it a couple times but couldn't get the slight play hitches out of it. Oh well you get the gist. Happy Thanksgiving by the way. Hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

Process

This sheet shows some of the different iterations the Ninja went through before landing on the final version on the right!

Baddies Wallpaper

Just another wallpaper. I'm not sure when these are being officially released but the games out so I can share! Later friends.

Stalkers wallpaper

Just got back from the honeymoon. So I'm posting Ninja stuff... I ain't got any photos of the wedding yet but when I do I'll post a couple:) In the meantime! This wallpaper was done to showcase the Stalker goons in Mark of the Ninja. Chowder.

Ninja wallpaper

Just to prove I do have more to come I figured I put this up as well. Meghan did the bg for this one. Later you sexy yams!

wallpapers

Hey everyone! Mark of the Ninja officially dropped on Xbox Live last friday and is receiving really positive reviews. I encourage everyone with a Xbox to pick it up and give it a play. In the meantime I've been doing wallpapers that will be released over the next few weeks. I'll post em up here early though so you guys can have a first look. Also, my personal stuff has taken a back seat to wedding planning. Janis and I are getting hitched tomorrow, so wish me luck! Maybe I'll throw a couple photos up when the dust settles. Later!

Mark of the Ninja

So Mark of the Ninja was announced a while ago and actually comes out as an Xbox exclusive on Sept 7. This Text Adventure is the second of it's kind to promote the game and I got to do the illo's. So check it out! Also this was a bit of concept art I did (with bg by Meghan Shaw) for the game quite a while ago. I was the lead animator on the game and can't wait to show you guys much more process work just as soon as it's released. And... play the game it's super fun!!

Quick anim test

Just another anim test to help nail down one of the characters from an upcoming project. Seems to me the best way to see if a design is working be to animate it. Later.

Round 1 Fight!

I did these designs up a while ago for a fighting game I'm making that I'll never actually make. Figured I'd throw some color on em and share them with you guys so they at least get some play. I had more planned but my ambition knows all sorts of bounds. Later!

Sketches

More sketches. These ones are from the old sketch pad. More animation test type stuff to come. Have a good one friends.

Sketches

Yo! I been doing some sketches on newsprint. Just thought I'd share a few. Later.

Detective

Hey friends. I figured I'd throw this one up since it's been a little while. I will have more illustration and design stuff as soon as I get my ass in gear. For now though this is one of the characters I'm working on for a little project. Later!

May Force

Hi friends. This be my monthly contribution to Planet Pulp. It's Star Wars month over there and this is all I could muscle up. What a sorry state:)

Morph Run

The Morph class! Get'n his run on.

Tech poses

This is the basic set of poses for the Tech character. Royce I believe:) I would also do an attack set, which I can't seem to find right now. LAter.

Basher Poses

Another pose sheet. This was done in Sketchbook. It wasn't long after this that I started posing in Flash because it's faster and more flexible.

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Basher run!

Hey guys! This is the Basher class.
This is the tech character from that game that never got released. More to come soon. Nels says "look at him go!"

Basher costumes

These guys are some variations on the Basher design by yours truly! We actually set up the anim pipeline to handle all those weapon variations within one Flash file.  Some anim cycles to come shortly.

Basher

This was the final design we settled on for the Basher class in the game. Jeff Agala did the final design, this is just a pose I did for some promo stuff.

doodles

Hey all. Just thought I'd throw up some morning and lunch doodles. All were done in Flash.

Randoms

Here's a few more random ones. I still wanna use that ninja for something sometime.
Here's another lineup we didn't use. Dan Yu did the rough sketches for these and I tightened them up. Just some subtle variation going on.

Morphs.

More of the creature type concepts. Definitely inspired at the time by Kung Fu Panda and also I think I was scope'n that old Disney cartoon Gargoyles. More of that silhouetty business as well.

concepts

Just more variations of the same. I was toying with using a little more texture on these guys.
In the lineup on the top, the idea was just to focus entirely on silhouette and then build the detail up from there. The game characters were going to be "skinable" so I started doing some variations on the creature character.
Hey everyone! A while back I had the chance to do some concept work for a game we were trying to reboot. Things didn't work out and the game was never finished but I did have a lot of fun working on it. I'll be posting some design work as well as some of the animation in the next little while. Later.

Bond, James

The monthly topic at Planet-Pulp is 007, so I figured I'd go for something kinda classic. Hope you guys like it.

Sketch time



Yo! Scanned the sketchbook a little. I don't know what it is but it seems like the more work I have to do the more random sketching happens. Guess it's nice to just do stuff for no reason. Hope you enjoy Thor's crotch shot. And yes Wolverine's kite got stuck. Later.

Shank 2




Yo! So... been posting some Shank 2 stuff lately. Figured maybe some poses of Shank would be cool!  These were done in Sketchbook Pro before I switched to doing all my posing in Flash. You can see here how we often indicate re-use for the builders. Have a good one!

Shank 2 boss poses

A little more Razor posing. This stuff was post-storyboard for the cinematics. Chowder.

Shank 2 boss poses


Hey guys.  Here's another pose breakdown from Shank 2. This is the Doctor boss, I sadly didn't get to animate him but still had a lot of fun posing him out. All these poses were drawn in Flash and you can see that the cleanup isn't super tight but that's because we have the build stage (converting the poses to symbols) which brings the drawings to full cleanup with a vector line.  More to come! Later.
