And the people are great? No? so I decided to draw them :)
I was learning a new technique so in order of appearance.
"If you want to keep your friends, never draw their portraits "
Hope you enjoyed the show :)

I am excited about it because it plays in front of all the screenings of The Simpsons Movie, and because I did the set dressing for the last 5 jungle shots, after the Jim Carrey tittle card. Oh and not to mention that the project rocks :)
The HD trailer can be found at
Here are also are some images for the film, released earlier this year.
If you are a color connoisseur
I hope you enjoy it :)

they are so fun.
I keep talking about my stay in El Salvador, so you are probably are tired of me mentitoning it. Anyway just a month ago, the Thomas Corriente commercials we where working on there, got released.
There are 13 1 min educational shorts, for the local electric company, based on a series of characters and the mischiefs that lead them to be in danger with elctricity.
These are the original stills with which I left.
and because it was only two off us I worked in the whole pipeline.
I modeled, rigged, animated, did the efxs rendered and composited .
Although it was very hard work, I wish someday you may
have the same fortune as I did, to work with a friend in a magical project.
Here is a link to all the shorts as they are now . El Chamus model has changed drastically.
Here is the company Site

I like my friends and the truth is, I don't want to lose them.
I once heard that a good exercise was to draw a portrait a day and for the reason previously stated and because I don't have time to draw till late at night when I get home, I been doing one self portrait a day all week.
I thought that in honor of self portraits I would revisit all the ones I have done over the years, and I have at my disposal.
Anyway, if you are reading this, draw, draw draw.

This moving logo was done for a church affiliated company in California.
It is meant to establish the identity for a series that touches on abuse.
For me it was challenging because I never had done water simulation or lit a sunset before in my life. Also during the time of my involvement my desktop died and I was out without a computer for about a week.
This is the look that they chose.
One thing that I have learned, while doing freelance, has been that the client usually knows what he/she wants. Even though as artist we may have a vision of the project, sometimes it is nothing like what the client wants. Our job is to guide them and hopefully show them what they had envisioned.
That being said this is what I envisioned.
No solution is better than the other, one conveys one feeling the other an other.
It all comes down to what the ultimate goal of the project was and what the client feels is better for his project.
I have included a link with both what I sent them and what I liked just for fun :)
(This requires quicktime and a little waiting time if you use EI)
Ha ha, I always wanted to have a director's cut of something.

for a friend. My animation is going to be projected on the screen of the Tv that kids are watching. The the image on the TV is then going to go out, and the short film is going to start.
Alright, I like the way Flash draws, but I prefer the way After Effects parents layers togerther. I also like the fact that you can scrub and see how things move not having to worry about creating a preview because one has a movie within movie, like in Flash . I could be wrong, so if I am, please corect me.
Here are the rought audio cuts as well as the whole Flash/AE animation uncut.
The film noice effect is only meant for the Godzilla sequence, all to be added in post later. But I added it show you.
Click on the words:
I am working on a bunch of junk, plus the film.
Oh, I just started the screenplay :) for my movie.
Hopefully I will be done in a year.
