my animation table

picture taken by luke brown, it was taken from his blog: "mucus clown"
it was fun keying in the bike and working out the in-betweens. We got a pencil test the next day and the bike was on the road back to so-cal. mechanic~animator...paper flipper~ wrench turner...puppeteer!
oh, this little project was just a rough pass. Clean-up will take some time...

Dragon update

finished with the line work. it's kinda funky, gonna try to fix some stuff during the clean-up stage...

went on a 25 mile bike ride with the girlfriend (she's a trooper) on friday. boy, we are tired and sore! feel better now and lookin' forward to the next run. I rode with only one gear, it burned going up the hills. gettin' a bike with speeds ready for the next run too. ten speed? aluminum frame and springer front..maybe some narrow mini ape hangers, banana seat, sissy the bike for 15 bucks too. cheap clean fun! if i'd worked in the same city i live in, i probably wouldn't need a car or motorcycle B-)

on the salt goofin' off

cool real bike in front and the fun wannabe in back

same old dragon

redrawing this dragon to use it for part of a texture. grey scale texture. using line to convey shape and form. kinda like painting by drawing in your brush stokes. a real head bender, drawing shapes to conform onto a plain, visualizing what's ahead and trying to do it with the least amount of guides. i guess it's technical, a good challenge, fun stuff. visceral insanity.

i sometimes wonder if this dragon will become an icon...
