After three months of working on commercial jobs in order to pay some bills, I'm finally able to concentrate on completing the artwork and animation for my next feature film, "Revengeance".
From an excellent script by my buddy Jim Lujan, the film has been in production at my studio for almost two years now. And as I'm nearing completion, I feel I'm really getting a grasp of the story and characters. In fact, at this point, I'm using the light box less and less, and just drawing freehand.
It's almost experimental how I'm distorting and bending the characters. And that's what makes it so much fun. It's like jazz - I'm free-flowing the animation straight from my imagination.
I'm about 2/3 of the way through the script, and I figure I have about 300 shots left to draw. If I can animate 7 shots a day, I'll be able to finish the animation by the end of February, and hopefully have something to show the festivals by June.
Keep your fingers crossed -
Here's some sample art from the film, I hope you enjoy it. Please send me your comments.
