Recovery week

Well, it's all over, Comic-con that is. Boy was it hectic. It was great meeting and talking with alot of people. I always wish that I could walk around more and check out all the cool stuff, but that never seems to happen. This week I will try to do another Artcast. Thanks to all of you that said you like it, I never know. In the meantime here is a recent rough design for an upcoming Danny Phantom episode.

ComicCon is next week and I will be there debuing my new book, hot off the press. It is now available online and shipping if you can't make it to the con. Stop by my booth at #H-6 . Please feel free to stop by with any questions and a portfolio if you would like to show it. I am also appearing on a panel for Animation Mentor on friday from 12:00-1:30 In room 3 “Designing Appealing Characters” (featuring Me, Dean Yeagle; and animation director Glen McIntosh, Eragon) and “Adventures Behind Animating Summer Blockbusters" at 12:45 (featuring top animators Dave Burgess, Over the Hedge; Charles Alleneck, Pirates of the Caribbean II; Michal Makarewicz and Andy Beall, Cars; and Ethan Hurd, Open Season). I look forward to seeing you!

These are some designs for an upcoming Danny Phantom show. They are just incidentals and will appear in the background. I will always play around with shape variations and roughs sketches of faces first and that will help me determine body shapes. The clean up was done in illustrator by the great clean up crew on the show as well as the color which is done in photoshop.

I thought since I have'nt had a chance to post much latley, that I would post some early development work I had done for Danny Phantom, over 4 years ago. We just wrapped up our final pitch last week. I believe in all we did 53 shows. It's been a great run.
