A Tangled Holiday

I am settling back in this morning after taking last week off for the holiday, so I had even less time than usual this morning to sketch something out. This is truly a "color rough" that is nowhere near anything that I would normally show... but that is how we roll here on the blog. Throw it all out there.

I did want to mention that I saw "Tangled" this weekend. (as you might have been able to tell by my scribble above) I admit that I went in with my arms crossed, prepared to be let down once again by a "visually decent yet lacking in overall quality" movie. I was completely wrong. I loved it. I could feel myself smiling throughout almost the entire film. I was watching a great Disney feature film! The animation was spectacular, and I would recommend anyone looking to become a 3D animator go see this film just so you know where the bar has been set. The story, in my opinion, was well paced and a fun watch. Go see the movie.

I Am Thankful For You

I am being lazy at home this week, but I wanted to send out a holiday scribble. I am thankful for all of the people who check the blog and give me consistent motivation. See you back here on Monday!

The Writer

As the snow quietly fell outside the window, he worked.
With every dip of his pen, every sip of his tea, his tale did unfold.

The Marathon of Cute

It was my daughter's turn to provide a concept for the blog, and I think she out knocked it out of the park. Sophie is three, and loves drawing up all kinds of things. They are all usually related to Barbie in some way, but the variety of those relationships provides plenty of opportunity for chaos and mayhem.

I didn't ask her what this picture was, because I wanted to go at it with only what I saw in the piece. I will show this to her today and get her critical feedback. Wish me luck.

UPDATE: My daughter "approves" of my version, and wants to "take it home with her." However, she delicately explained that her character was a "kitty cat" and while mine was cute, it strayed a bit from the original idea. She is willing to give me another chance on a future piece.

The Cookie Wagon

Come on. Who wouldn't want a pedal wagon filled
with small bakers who spend their day making cookies
and feeding them to you so you can keep pedaling?

Makes sense to me.

Feeling slow on this Monday morning.
This guy however, is not slow.

I think I have a candy hangover...
