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.

Shank 2

Hey everyone. So, Shank 2 dropped a little while back and I've got some groovy stuff to show from the production and promo side of things. I thought I'd start with Jeff's title splash. The 2nd image is a variant cover I did for the Shank comic (which I'll post here asap). I was allowed to do whatever I wanted so that's what came out. The model sheet below shows some of the poses for the boss Razor. In terms of work flow I would basically rough animate a good portion of the boss by hand in Flash and then take a variety of those poses to clean up so we could build off them. We would then go back over the rough animation with Flash symbols and finish the character off. I've been planning to make a process video for this for quite some time, hopefully one day I'll actually post it! Hope you all dig, more to come soon.
