Rich Fool art

So I'm continuing to work on the final art for the Rich Fool. Here is the scene of him in one of his new barns eating, drinking and being merry. Little does he know...

I still have more art to do before I'm ready to rig and animate.Update 9/4: I'm about halfway through with the animation and should have it all finished soon. Can't wait to post on WorshipHouseKids!

Parable 5 - The Rich Fool

A couple of days ago I began a new parable animation. This time it is the story of the Rich Fool--you know, the greedy rich guy that doesn't want to share but builds bigger barns to hold all his stuff? It has a sad ending but teaches a good lesson.

The above pic is from the storyboard which is pretty much done. Next, I need to record the voice parts and do all the artwork. Once that's done it will be time to rig all the parts I want to animate and then finally get rolling on the animation--that's the fun part!

The Last Month or So

So what have I been doing for the past month or so? A lot, that's what! Aside from illustrating a few articles that have come my way, a logo, and a company slideshow, I've been animating. I finished my very first 30 second commercial as well as three short animations for one of my regular clients. Unfortunately, I can't share any of the details or show samples of that work at this time since it is under copyright and is yet to be released. But all that to say, I have been happily quite busy. For about 2-3 months before that I was going through the doldrums of freelancing with little work trickling in. For awhile I was contemplating a career change--street sweeping anyone? But I figured the wind/work would pick up sometime, and it did! So now I am on the home stretch of my recent flurry of assignments and hopefully it will keep up in the coming months.
