Sketches & Some New Designs + 1st Semester Animation Project - Animation Tests

And that would be my first animation tests for 'Dino Phone Attack!' my first school project. I changed the main character and designed it a bit different. I'm still working on this project, trying to fix all the mistakes and everythings. It should take me about one or two more weeks to finish all the scenes.

Pixar Animator Matthew Luhn

Today I met animator Matthew Luhn! He's extremely nice and so kind and it was a pleasure to meet this wonderful storyboard artist. It was a real nice experience. Check out Mr. Laun's Official Website

Also, my artwork\character designs were chosen as some of the best student artwork in my school for 2011! Only 30 different pieces were chosen, so it's kinda cool, I wish my teachers would have chosen different characters, I have better ones, but yeah, that's the way it goes. On the last photo bellow, you can see that I'm probably one of the few students in the school that actually focuses on character design, I try to make my designs as solid and appealing as possible, and hopefully I'll get better and better in the future.

Internship at ARG! Animation Studios!!!

Wow! I just got a phone call from New York City, from the main offices of ARG! Animation Studios, they've told me that I got accepted into their internship program and that they'd be happy to have me as an intern! The studio is located in Colorado, the internship takes place online, it's really cool because people who live outside the Colorado area can work online directly with the animators in the studio. It's awesome and I'm looking forward to start my internship with them!

Pixar MasterClass Character Design Competition - Update

Well, I guess I was stupid enough to think that I actually had a chance to win the contest, nobody would even look at my designs, the competition is based on how many "likes" you get on Facebook, and anybody can submit their artwork, even artists working in the industry.

Anyway, when I created my pecies for the contest I tired to focus on good, solid character design, I tried to create strong characters, that basically was my main goal.

You can check out all the artwork for this competition by clicking here

My Final Pieces for April's Pixar Master Class Competition

Wow, the last couple of weeks were super intensive, I worked really hard on the stuff above so I hope you guys like it. So Andrew Gordon and Matthew Len are coming over to my school this month and they're gonna teach us a few things about Animation at the PIXAR MasterClass 2011. With all that they're having this cool competition that I'll be telling you about in a sec, Anyways, this month is going to be cool.

About the Pixar Master Class Competition, we were asked to choose a few characters from fairy tales and stories and create a twist for them in some sort of way, for example: The Horror Version of Alice in Wonderland, The Anime Version of The Little Mermaid etc, so I basically created the following stuff:

TweedleDee\TweedleDum - Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Version

The Animated TV-Series Version of Jack and the Beanstalk

The Horror Version of The Story of Three Bears

The Black Version of Jack and the Beanstalk
