Little Pebble test

This is a test clip for Little Pebble. I was trying to figure out how to get the texture on the pebble to move during the various head turns. I managed to do so using a clip mask in Toon Boom Studio. I also added a radial gradient to give it some 3D shading. Stay tuned for the entire animation--coming soon!

Little Pebble animation production begins

Over a year ago I began working on an animation for a very cute story called "Little Pebble." Shortly after that I discovered that the story had already been recorded by some friends of mine as an audio drama. I figured the story had already been produced, at least audio-wise, so I shelved the project. But now that I'm in the swing with animating and since I had already done a lot of work with the character design, scenes, storyboarding, etc.,I decided to go ahead and finish it. So please keep it in your prayers. As soon as it's done I'll let you know.

My very first animation sale!

Okay, well, this might not seem like such a big deal but today I had my very first sale of an animation! Hopefully  the first of many! Somebody saw my "Two Builders" animation and wanted a copy for their church group. So they made a payment via PayPal and I sent them a link. Soon, all the animations on the Family Media Channel will be downloadable for a small fee of $.99 each. So get your pennies ready!

Toon Boom Animate 2

Well, I wish I had $550 so I could get the soon to be released second version of Toon Boom Animate (hint! hint!). At the moment, doing animation is purely philanthropic and doesn't bring in anything to help pay the bills. Maybe some day it will. But I'll just keep on producing as it's lots of fun and I hope that people like them as well.
