The Animatic You've All Been Waiting For...

The animatic I've been promising is finally here.... Keep in mind this is really rough, so if something isn't clear please ask. Also if something makes no sense or is totally NOT funny, please tell me before I waste hours of my life animating it. Thanks.

My dad totally didn't get the Heaven's Gate reference, so if you find it confusing as well, SHOUT OUT.

I've still been sewing like a madman, but I decided to take a break today and return to my film. I've worked more on the animatic, but I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I'll post it shortly. In the mean time, I was working out an overall aesthetic for the film. Here's what I came up with. I couldn't quite decide which color variation I preferred, so opinions are encouraged.

I think I'm leaning towards the second one.

And yes, those trees are made out of bacon and gummy bears and the clouds are made of marshmallow fluff.

I have the sneaking suspicion that compositing the character and bg will be an enormous pain in the rear, but we shall see.

Gettin' Crafty

So in the midst of trying to find animation employment I've been left with a lot of free time. For a few weeks I sat around and scratched my head wondering what to do next. Then it occurred to me that I should probably do what my mom always told me to do- sell purses online. This has since expanded to other things such as iPod cases, hair accessories, and now wallets. I opened an Etsy store called VAppleB (so perhaps people would associate my caricature signature with my store). Check it out HERE

Or if you're too lazy to check that out here's some photos:

I sold this one to my step grandma. Ha. I was really fond of it.

the following are all hair barrettes

I also made an amazing vinyl wallet as a gift for someone, but I'll refrain from posting pictures of that until it's been received.

So BUY BUY BUY! or feel free to commission me to make something custom. The options are endless.
