Fake Movie Posters

As can be seen here I've started making fake movie posters as my current personal project. The hope is that it'll be a means of self art improvement.

Here's another one I've made recently;

The Invasion storyline is a long ways away, it involves the Maximus alien species seen here invading Earth, and the various heroes team up to stop them. Yes, it's a very archetypal story concept. The Justice League, the Avengers and the New Teen Titans all came together to stop alien invaders.

I won't reveal who those eyeballs belong to just yet.

For those of you interested, this is the design for the Maximus General; kind of spider-y, hehe.

But anyways, like I said, Invasion is a long way away, and I have a lot of ground to cover before it can even start.

I've got three more posters on the go, but none of them are finished enough to showcase.

Internet Cheebs

Their usernames are FallopianFedora, NixDieAlley, TheBroThatSurvived, GalacticPenguin, psylentknight, Ziggygunner, Malacefire, smartboy201, MasterZiggy16, Thesdot210, Suigetsu008, Kayzmega1, RWR01, Nytroxious, AnAwkwardSmile, CaptainTooner, FromanAntlugia22, Donutman960, another incarnation of CaptainTooner, ImaginationsArtsInc, Subrick and Kwame. (I also forgot what his new username is, we just always call him Kwame.)

So, go google them on YouTube, see what kind of vids they got.

And yes, that photo in the background is real.

Cheeb Collections

During the summer of 2010, I started drawing characters in a different shape. At the time I was apart of the Naw Kids group, and I had hoped to make little cartoons starring my Internet friends in this fashion. The idea didn't happen as planned, as did almost all of the plans we had had for the group, but the Cheebs remained as a picture request on Storm Artists. I'll be adding more Cheeb characters tomorrow.

Blinkie and co.

I've been playing around with clay lately, making things like a Dr. Robotnik toy, a Yellow Devil from the Mega Man series, and a work-in-progress Dr. Wily to go with him.

The little red one started as a topper for one of those laser pointers. (The red stone on top glows bright red.) The blue one didn't work quite as well in the same regard.

I don't really remember what I was thinking when I made the larger one. The top was originally one of those mini containers for crafts, filled with a liquid plastic labelled Puzzle Saver. The "brain" must have been made out of the wrong clay, because it ended up partially dissolving and dying the Puzzle Saver.

So I got to thinking, how'd they look as characters, and these pictures are the results.

Update 05-08-2012

Well, I've graduated from community college after three short years. Plenty of stuff I would have like to have done differently, plenty of things I wish I had had the chance to do (or have taken the chance to do), but as they say you can't change the past, only learn from it and I like to think I learned an awful lot.

All that's left to do is go to the ceremony, wear the fancy gown and get that little piece of paper to make it all official.

I don't anticipate that I'll be getting a job in the animation industry anytime soon. Right now I'll take whatever I find, and hope that my environmental problems don't get in the way. (That's a story for another day.)

Right now, I'm bringing one of the earliest characters up to bat, in hope that he might be an appealing character to pitch for kid's shows, the problem being I've spent so much time writing "dark" and "complex" stories, trying to learn to think in a "light" and "simplistic" fashion is kind of, well, tricky. Watching shows that I don't usually watch, like Rugrats for example, is somewhat of a help.

It's my hope that in the next few months that in addition to a steady job, I can start doing commission work. It's something I've talked about doing for awhile and as we all know, no one ever got anything done just talking about it.

Well, I can't think of anything else to write about, so, that's it for all. Thanks for reading.

Redone Maximus Drone finished

(c) WaffleAfterHours 2010 - 2012

Finally got this finished after quite awhile.

The original circa 2010 is here;

The new version's outline is here;

This new design isn't as alien as before but is still an improvement in my humble opinion.
