My name is Galen Beals and I've been working in 3D animation since 93. You might think that I would have to have a good grasp of 2D art to be able to do that but guess what?! Well, you'll see for yourself. My parents are artists so I grew up being encouraged to draw and sculpt a lot which I had been doing extensively until I started getting more into stop motion animation and eventually 3D computer animation in the 90's. I've worked for Will Vinton studios, Hash inc, Flying rhino and now I'm at Bent Image Lab here in Portland, Oregon.
Anyway, I've been aching to get back to drawing but I'm more then a little rusty. My hope is that by posting these here It'll help me get better so please let the feedback flow. These are all new as of a few months ago when I got Painter 9 and Sketchbook pro. I've also been playing around on a tablet PC (Acer) that I've been borrowing from work now and then. I have to say, It's been fantastic!
