My New YouTube Channel!

It's been a little while since I've updated this blog.  I've been busy in and out of jobs, updating my portfolio, and finding new work.  While I've been doing all of that though, I decided to start up a youtube channel.  I'd love to turn it into a full time gig creating my own animated content, but we shall see.  At the moment I have a How To Draw series and I'm working on an animated educational video series for 1st graders where they have to solve math problems.  I think it's a fun idea and I'm eager to share it when more of it is put together.

Other exciting news happening with my YouTube channel is that I just partnered with Channel Frederator.  They make, and host, some of the best animated content on YouTube, so I am super excited about working with them, learning more about being successful on YouTube, and making more content.  Below are some of the videos I've worked on.  If you enjoy them, please subscribe as it does help me out.  Keep in mind they are geared towards a younger audience.  :)

Sirens of the Sea - Sketchbook Cover

Check out the cover for my mermaid sketches.  I just sent the final PDF to the printers and the sketchbooks should be arriving next week!  If you are going to CTN you can pick one up at Table 26, if not I'm sure I will have a few left over for online sales.

Under The Sea - Part 2

Here are the rest of the mermaids that will be in my little sketchbook for CTN this year.

Under The Sea - Part 1

This year for CTN I thought it'd be fun to do a little book of mermaids drawn traditionally and colored with copic markers.  I was planning on doing a mermaid everyday, but then I started doing inktober stuff for October so between all of that and freelance, my mermaids have slowed down a bit, but I still plan on putting something together.  Here are a few of the mermaids that I've done so far.  

I also post updates regularly on instagram if you'd like to see what I'm up to more frequently.  :)

CGMA - Character Design - Weeks 7&8

I realized I never got around to posting my final weeks at CGMA.  I was planning on fixing up the mistakes, but that will have to wait for a little bit.  Week 7 I missed because I was out of town.  The assignment for that week was weaker, in my opinion, than the others.  It had more to do with setting up a shot and less with character design.  I didn't spend as much time on it and went straight on to week 8.  I wish we had more assignments like week 8, but when everyone in the class is at a different level it's hard to say.  What I'm hoping for is that Brett Bean gets his own course since he's one of my favorite character designers.  I've learned a lot from him and this was only a beginners course.  Here is my work from weeks 7 and 8:
