For Ben and other Bits...

What's good from the net this week...

  • Karate - Having been called to the carpet by my buddy Ben....YES, I am excited about Kung Fu Panda. The art looks awesome and from what I've seen and read, it's shaping up quite nicely. I know I'm buying the artbook at least. :)
  • Animation Workflow - Seeing how other animators work is a great way to keep growing as an animator. Here are some fantastic insightful reads:
  • Castle Crashers is still very much going to be Awesome - There's a blog to chronicle its awesomeness and the art is beautiful. And speaking of workflow... Marsh Land Construction from The Behemoth on Vimeo.
  • The Batman Animation Law - Dictates that Batman in pretty much any animated form will rock. I'm definitely looking forward to this incarnation. I will say the original animated series from the mid 90's is still my favorite and I think the Justice League version lost some cool factor (way too big of ears...)
  • Some GREAT Disney Art - LINK

Major Changes and TOONs!

Lots of stuff been going on. Got married to an amazing woman, a bit of snowboarding and snow shoeing in Vail, getting set up to work from home via VPN AND I ate a huge turkey leg at a rodeo last night! Oh, and chuck wagon races rock. Lots of great animations burning up the internets lately:

  • New Wall-E trailer. This film looks better every time I see a trailer. I cannot wait for it to come out. Watch it!
  • Horton Hears a Who is coming out to play this weekend and I'm going! Hope the who is fun. Thanks to Ray for the link to this vid.
  • Cat Shorts - Simple design, brilliantly executed, especially humorous for anyone who's ever had a cat. And there's another!
