Mega Man Contest and Storyboards

A new action storyboard for my portfolio. The muscular platypus men are robbing a bank so the Toons (need to think of a better name) arrive to stop them. At the same time Ultimate Man is pissed off because people don't like him as much as Doodleboy. And start scene.

My entry into the Udon Crew Megan Man Contest.

Good News Everyone

Just to say I have some more news. I sent my old student film into the CBBC's My Toons website and they liked it. They want to put it up on the website for three months. It will hopefully be up in a few weeks. I'll post a link. So if you are a 6 to 12 year old, know a 6 to 12 year old or can pretend to be a 6 to 12 year old, please rate it highly because who knows, the BBC might want more.


Working on an animation test for a company making a 2D fighting game. If they like it, I can do more and get paid.

Waxing Philosophical

I would like to just wax philosophical for a moment about why I don't colour my drawings and why I put so many up on deviantart.

Firstly I do a lot of requests for people on deviantart and this is the only way to give them to the people. Am I proud of a lot of these request drawings? No, not really. Am I proud of any of my drawings? No, not really.

Every time I do a drawing I know that I can do better, so what is the point of colouring in and finishing this picture when I know the next one will be better. There is no such thing as a finished picture. I would rather have a drawing where I like some aspects of it and not others, rather than a drawing I thought was all just a bit meh.

Practice makes perfect, and you can't be expected to get better if you spend time finishing art.

Besides I don't know what you guys and gals out in Internet land are going to like or dislike, so if I get harsh criticism on a sketch that took me 5 to 10 minutes, no big deal. If I get criticism on a drawing I spent a few days finishing, that hurts.

And that's why I don't colour and I post up a lot of drawings.
