Sunday, April 22, 2012


For school, I'm working on a presentation for an artist talk about my "artistic life", meaning my history, my goals, and just about my work in general.

So I decided to redraw one of my first drawings ever, to include in the powerpoint.


Animations: Something Old, Something New

Went back and reworked/finished up an old animation:

and continued to work on this dialog piece:

Animation: "Poster Boy" rough pass

Just animating along to dialog again, it will eventually be lip-synched as well, but this is just the initial pass at the acting and blocking of characters.

You might remember the dialog from my Biffo animatic earlier in the year.

Tyler's Animation Alphabet: H

Here's the entry for H:

Buccaneer Progress Report: Dad Turnaround and "Ben" Process Sketches

Just some more work done for the Buccaneer short in between doing layout for the scenes.

Also I'm still sort of struggling with the son, who I've deemed "Ben" for no real good reason (he kinda looks like a "Ben", no?)

I just feel that he is visually boring compared to the Dad and the Cap'n, both of whom I'm pretty happy with at this point. so here are some sketches of me trying to "find" what Ben is going to look like in the final version. I think i'm getting closer with this newest incarnation
I'm trying to make his body shape some sort of rounded triangle, and just adding rounded points to him in general. I'm pretty close to being happy with it, but i think it can still be pushed.
