Lunchtime Sketches

Bubblegum Contest

Hey all! Here are some sketches done during lunch this week.

Yesterday my Mom told me she visits my blog everyday. To see more posts and read people's comments. I asked her why she never commented herself. She said "Ahhhh I wouldnt know what to say." How cute is that. Mom. It's me , cmon.

Alright so, tonight is my Animation Mentor q&a. I'm gonna plead my case and try to convince my mentor that keeping the "belly bump" at the end of my animation test is an idea worth keeping in. Wish me luck.

Usain Bolt

Thanks for your feedback on my work in progress shot everyone! I really appreciate it!

Here's a lunchtime sketch of one of my favorite moments of the Olympics. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt celebrating way before he even reaches the finish line, and still breaking the world record. He broke two more in the 200m and 4x100 relay before the games were over.

Here's another memorable one:
Cuban TaeKwonDo Olympian kicks referee in the face. What?! Such a horrible thing! Poor guy.
I just wish it wasn't such a funny picture. I dont think I could've posed it any better. The formation of his hands lead me to believe that he was actually a few microseconds late to kung-fu block it, or catch his foot or something.

Well so, to make it relevant to this blog (and so I dont go straight to hell) , I'll try and break down why I think this image works so well. And I'll try to keep the giggling in. Wait. Just. Give me a second........Okay, whew. Here goes

click for bigger image.

I couldn't fit this in the picture but there is also a little bit of overlap on the tie. Which, again, also follows the line of action.

Awful sportsmanship, kinda awesome image.

Shot Update

Finally, an update on the Pontillas/Coderre collabo! About 3 weeks and 1,000 changes later, here 's what I turned in yesterday.

Obviously, lip sync still has to be done, mechanics polished, and a I got a few other change requests (I'm changing the end so it doesnt feel like she is pushing the dude back with an invisible pregnant belly forcefield) . But I'm gonna hit the ground running because I got 3 more weeks until class is up!
