Portland Studios releases some more fantastic shirts...

My buddies over at Portland are some fantastic artists and they just opened their new store. I already had two of their shirts from their last release a while back in my closet and three more will be joining their brethren shortly. Buy one and support some talented artists (and nice folk to boot) :)

Another Round of TF Goodness!

I can't wait to see this game when it's done! If the animation carries over in game play as well as it does in the cut scenes it's going to be phenomenal. Great stuff!

Some more sweet flash animation...(this time with swords!)

I ran across these three videos today. They comprise the pre-story behind Heavenly Sword (a game coming out for the PS3 soon). There may be more of them coming, I'm not sure. I have to say the art direction of the actual game looks run-of-the-mill compared to this. Maybe I'm just tired of "realistic" representation. How amazing would a game with this look be? Awesome indeed. At least it would be amazing looking...:)

Stranglehold Demo is up on XBox Live!

(Dislaimer - VERY violent video, lots of blood and stuff, if you're squimish...move along) So, the Stranglehold demo released last night on XBOX live. IGN did a quick write up on it and the comments I've been seeing for the most part show people enjoying it. If you're into shooting stuff up, give it a look. I hadn't really seen the multiplayer in a very long time. Prolly a year ago. It's actually looking pretty fun.

  • FANTASTIC "simple" animation - I love this thing. Makes me wanna get back to "traditional" animation even more.
  • Great animation blogs - I've stumbled across some great animation relate blogs recently I need to add to the side of my site, in the meantime, here's some of them:
  • Free Dog Rig to good home - The guy who did package man (a rig I cut some animation teeth on) just released a free dog rig. One of the guy's blogs I follow did a test animation with it along with a little write up on it. Fun stuff!
  • Great Dialogue - Keith Lango puts better into words much of what I've been thinking about the last year along with some great insights - part 1, part 2, part 3.
