The Lame Epic

My history knowledge was never good at all but I always was interested in messing with histories and combining them with some funny topics and silly facts to make them more interesting. But now I'm getting interested in history as the history. This time I worked on the new 4 characters for my new idea called the "Lame Epic" which includes a hero and his love interest, a sidekick and the villain. (Like the last time.)

For the hero character I chose the horse kind which it's a little bit odd but I liked that because you don't see it that much. He's pretty brave but He forgets that he is a horse and he might get in trouble because of his horsy actions. He kicks like a horse, Yells like a horse, Runs like a horse, ...etc. and also loves his heels. He loves them.
The love interest is a female human being but she's a little bit over weight kind of the character but she's pretty and cute at the same time. She thinks that she's hot and cute and I agree with her on the second part. Unfortunately she always becomes the victim of the Hero's silly actions. She is pretty much hyper active in spite of her weight.
The sidekick (which is my favorite) is the tiny cyclops who doesn't take anybody's side. He's just there in picture. He's really funny but he doesn't know that he can be a titan. However he's got a point because he is small and not that bright.
The last main character, the three-headed Villain, was supposed to be the greatest Titan of the earth but it has one issue. The third head is the loony crackpot creature that has no idea what the hell is going on. It acts like a poppy dog and unfortunately that third head take the all coolness and villainness of our character and there's nothing the other 2 heads can do about it. Oh wait...the other head is also have a little bit problem with the others because it's a bird head and it can't fly anywhere. The real main villain is actually the middle head but he has to find some way to get along with his other companion heads in this story.
I did a little bit value study of the characters to get their three dimensional look. Doesn't look %100 perfect but I will be working on them harder with adding some colors.

Boy and Dog walking cycle

video
As you know, most of animators assignments are filled with walk cycles. Quadrupeds are always the tough ones. But all thing you're gonna need is coming up with a formula based on the references you around you.
In this video I was assigned to animate a human character with a four legged animal on a leash with the different timings without changing their distance from each other with the background in a loop. It sounds like a easy job but Nooooo...it was not. It took times to find a right loop for that scene. But It was worth it.

Cape Man Animation

video
From Now on I will be posting my animation tests on my blog to make it more Animationy. I think it will make it more interesting. Besides I want you to know that I can animate characters .
In this video I've animated the Cape man who is jumping the rope. Really simple but with subtle overlapping actions.

Humpty Dumpty Sketches

I've heard Humpty Dumpty a lot in my life but I never bothered to look it up to find out what it looks like. So finally I did a little research on the character for one of my roommates to draw it on an egg. I mean an actual egg..

A Good Family

Oh boy...my assignments are getting more interesting. This time I had a lot of fun with the characters as a family group. I had to pick two very opposite species as parents. I picked a pig as a father...
... and a wasp as a mother..
And they must have two kids (one boy and one girl) and one of them should look more like a father and the other more like a mother. So I came up with these sketches..
Then I thought it would be better if I put them together in a family portrait. So here they are..

4 Characters - From Cartoony to Realistic

After finishing the final version of the cartoony version of the 4 main characters for my new cartoon (I'm still working on the title..maybe "Bad Heroes" for now) I was assigned to do the realistic version of them.
Actually it was not that challenging to me to turn them into live-action characters. It was ok but not as fun as the cartoon drawing. It has proven to me that I always have a cartoon world living inside of me with bucked toothed tiny characters. I feel like a happy pregnant lady.

Ricky, Steve and Karl

It's been a month I've started listening to Ricky Gervais show (Especially his 10 guides). I was doodling chimps and I realized that Karl likes chimps. He's so innocent and gullible but he's always interested in everything. I believe Ricky really cares about him. Then I drew Ricky's, Steve's and Karl's face in cartoon on the top. I really like the show. I don't Ricky is reading this post but I like him with Karl..All the time.
