A while back the Popcorn Sundae crew and I had the opportunity to work for Allied Artists Music Group creating 2d animated segments for Rocky Kramer's latest music video. Now that the video is out and we can officially talk about it I've created a little video showing our animation, compositing, and VFX process for it.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Allied Artists Music Group creating animated segments for Rocky Kramer's "Rock Star" music video. I had a lot of fun creating the “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”/ “Space Jam” blend of animation and live-action. The video is out now on YouTube!
Directed by Del Harvey, Character Design by Carlos Douglas Jr., Key Animation/ Animation/ Compositing by ME ^_^, Animation/ Clean-up & Color by Pltnm06Ghost.
In a weird twist of fate, I've been offered a contract as 2d Character Animator at SmashBits Animation House AND a Full-Time teaching contract at Flo Valley. When it rains, it pours I guess!
Huge thanks to Ron Fleischer, Del Harvey, and Randy Field for all your advice and encouragement on my animation reel. Another huge thanks to Paul A. Huddleston, Michael Quintero, and Bob Langnas for writing those wonderful letters of recommendation and to Janice Nesser and Julia Jenner for fighting so hard to make the FT Graphics position happen in the first place!
Finally getting back to doing the tutorial thing! ^_^
I just updated my character animation reel for 2019! https://youtu.be/BBZbVuXCGSY As always, feedback is greatly appreciated. Also, if you know anyone who needs an animator please do let me know. My last job just wrapped and I'm eager to get started on another!
Got some expression and pose sheets done for my animated web series this weekend. This guy's really fun to draw! ^_^ More character art and bios over here -> https://www.popcornsundae.com/
In today’s video, I’ll cover the basics of doing pixel animation in Clip Studio Paint. Sorry, this one’s coming out a bit later than I’d like. I’m training for my Quality Matters cert (it’s for teaching college online.) I just completed the first two classes, yay! …At the expense of getting my tutorial done on time, boo. -_-0 Better late than never, I suppose.
If you're making your own pixel art or animation I'd love to see it! Please let me know where to find your work. I’m still trying to decide what my next tutorial series will be after this one so if you have any ideas please leave a comment and let me know what you’d like to learn next.

I had the day off yesterday so I decided to carve out a little time to do something different. Between the pixel art and 2d character animation I've been doing a lot of cartoony stuff lately so it was time to dive back into the pseudo-3d world of After Effects particles. I whipped up this little GIF to send to friends and family for the New Year, it was a lot of fun. Happy 2019 everyone!
