Below are a couple storyboards: The first is the Angelic War which features the designs I did for Michael and Lucifer. The second is the Public Service announcement that features Katherine and Owl. Obviously one has a more serious tone than the other. (I am not advocating any particular religious belief, nor is this what I believe actually happened, just ran with the story in a way that I thought would be most visually interesting) I enjoyed the challenge of them both. ^^
Still plugging away on story completion. Last 2 weeks worked strictly on portfolio to submit to Dream Job and sent it off this morning...nervous, anxious, excited, hopeful, only somewhat confident. All out of my hands now so back to working on the stories and local job hunt. Enjoyed going to Denver ComicCon, much bigger than I anticipated but not yet as impressive as Armageddon was in New Zealand, especially when it came to the COSplayers. (Thank you, Raul, for going with me even though I know you didn't want to be in those crowds any more than I did) Kudos to all the awesome artists who showed! If I'm still in Denver this time next year I'll see what I can do about getting a booth too. As a last note, I just wanted to say that I'm super excited for Pixar's Brave coming out soon - can't wait to see it!!!

Working on portfolio pieces and noticed that I don't have much in the way of animal characters, so I thought I'd try to fix that by the end of this week. Had no idea what I wanted to do, so took Raul's suggestion of CAT and ran with it. Started by drawing some studies from W. Ellenberger, D. Dittrich and H. Baum's Atlas of Animal Anatomy for Artists and sketching from photos I took at Auckland Zoo and found by googling just to get the idea of how the kitty worked before I started playing with shapes, etc. More pages to come as I wrap up kitty today/tomorrow. Good stuffs.
