Xara Outsider October 2010

I got another mention in the Xara Outsider newsletter. Take a look, it's at the bottom of the page on the right. They highlight my cartoon slideshow on YouTube. All the images were created in their program Xara Designer Pro.

Latest animation projects

I know I haven't posted much lately, I've been pretty busy. Let's see, I just finished animating another Tiny Bible Treasures--Fish and More Fish--and it is currently getting the finishing touches by my friend Andrew who is adding the music and sound effects. So you should be seeing that on my YouTube channel soon. I also completed two animations which I can't really show you since they are copyrighted material. One is for the Cherub Wings series and the other is for a new series called Brother Francis.
For Brother Francis I did a more realistic style animation showing the story of Jesus from the Last Supper to the Ascension. It was quite a challenge trying to make it look good and learning how to lip sync realistic characters. I got the idea of how to do it by watching some anime cartoons. In general, they only use 3 poses for the mouth--closed, partly open, more open--that's it!
Next on my to do list is another Tiny Bible Treasures--the story of the sick man who is lowered through a roof--and animating a song. I will, of course, publish anything that I can so you can see what I'm up to.
