This is the first cartoon I've ever made, it was mainly done as an exercise to introduce us to the idea of moving objects across a page in a simulated 3d space. My instructors name is Norland Tellez.

We had to give our sack some personality, so I decided to make my sack a trigger happy religious fanatic. Our instructor had a few requirements for this assignment, the sack had to get scared, and run away, and meet it's demise.

(If there is any kind of problem with me posting my cartoons with music that I borrowed let me know and I'll post muted versions.)

4th quarter portfolio (BIG POST)

















This monster post has a little of everything, each piece is labeled for the class that I did it for. For this portfolio I received an outstanding portfolio award for Summer 2007. It was an honor to be recognized.

Dracula Must Die

This is a board game I created for a class I took. I created the idea for the game as well as all the art it took to bring it to life. It is 2-4 players, co-op or versus. The object of the game is to find the items you need to destroy Dracula without being turned into a vampire. My favorite part of this game is that it doesn't end when you die, it just gets more fun.

Set Extension project


This is for my matte painting class, we had to take our own pictures, and extend the image by 1/3. We also had to add some damage destruction to the image, and several other things. This was done in Photoshop.

family dog color script pass 1


This is for my storyboard class. We were given a 2.5 page script and told to turn it into a storyboard. We started scribbling on post it notes, then we did some blue pencil roughs on larger paper. After cleaning up the rough work, we had to pick 9 panels of our story to color. This is the first pass, once i make a few adjustments that the teacher suggested, I'll post the second pass.

progression

This started out as a little sketch for a background design, then turned into a snazzy photoshop painting, and ended up as a 3d model, the textured version will be coming soon.

Sometimes I feel a little like this guy. People are usually pretty serious about their lattes.
