This week's sketch topic at work was "Magical Items". So, I did this horn. The design isn't much to write home about because I didn't decide what it's magic effect was until late in the sketch. So, it looks a little generic and my chain is shit.
Well, between VV putting on the heat and 2 longer term freelance gigs I'm juggling, I've hand my head in the sand lately. Fortunately or unfortunately, it doesn't show signs of slowing up anytime soon, but I'll try to be more social.
While I still can't talk about my VV project, I can say a bit on the other 2. The first is some children's book illos for a fellow. It's in very early stages right now (no publisher yet), but it's fun, fanciful work and he's giving me loads of artistic authority with it. Few people really trust artists to do their job, this chap, so far, appears to be an exception. Hopefully, he'll allow me to post some previews soon.
As for the other project, an old friend from high school started a production company in LA this past year and he wants me to do some work for the new flic they're making. The possible laundry list is long. As of now, he's only given the go-ahead for their logo (argh!) and the movie poster, with plans to have me do the intro credit sequence (2D!), the company logo anim (2D!) along with some shot stuff. He few me out to LA last week and showed me a good time (even though I despise LA).
As you might guess, I've got little to show but I did finally scan some older sketch book pages and some from my trip to LA and there's a collage of a bunch of unfinished shit:
Mightily impressed by your work, Dave. Good strong drawing chops, and your little creature sketches have got a lot of individuality about them. Might even have the makings of some crazy toy designs. Inspiring stuff.
