I saved the Best for last here. this was my all time favorite prop of the episode. I wanted rick to have a HUGE rocket launcher type weapon. its got double barrels, trigger guards and tons of lights!. I wanted it to have a video game epic’ness to it. I felt super bad for the story board artists that had to draw this. I know it was too complicated. So i drew as many angles as possible to lighten the work load of the animators. Big thanks to Jack Cusumano and Jason Boesche for coloring this monster.
Do you guys Know who the Gromflamites are? they are the best Bugs ever, Seriously I would totally hang out with them. And I got to draw their Space Military Fleet! This was a Collaboration with James Mcdermott. Together we worked to figure out how to design s
pace ships for these bugs, James wanted the designs to feel like insects, we started with the small one and sorta made it like a dragon fly. The best part was getting to see that giant one blow up.
I drew all the stages of the explosion but the effects team at Bardell really did the magic. watch Morty Night Run to see all of these guys in action. there is a great chase scene choreographed by director Dominic Polcino
I hope you guys like gears because I got to draw a ton of them. The gear cop people have the cutest police ships. I wanted them to feel plasticy and small. like a model. Big thanks to Jack Cusumano for coloring these guys! and Maximus Julius Pauson for designing the gear Cops
Big thanks to Jack Cusumano and Elisa Phillips for coloring this. and the BG color team for doing an awesome job at designing Zeeps Miniverse. Carol Wyatt, Hedy Yudaw, Jason Boesche and of course our art director James Mcdermott.
I’ve been super busy at Rick and Morty Season 2, but here’s some personal stuff ive been working on in the mean time!,Some New Art Ive been working on Recently!,This one is from my trip to Bib Bear
Elisa and Andrea’s Birthday Present!
I hope you watched the GI Joe Community Episode! ITs out on Hulu now I think. me and some awesome people worked tirelessly to bring you it. I was a prop designer and animator. Here you can see just a few of the tanks and veichles I designed for the episode. My favorite was the giant walking Cobra Robot. I worked under Community director Rob Schrab, who is super talented, and he worked very hard the last 2 months to make this possible. he even gave me notes on the cobra bot, his additions really made it look cool. oh and these were all colored by the lovely Andrea Gerstmann
Hey Guys, You should be watching Rick and Morty I worked as a color stylist on a bunch of episodes, and here are some of the fun characters I got to color. Top is Rick and Summer when they get all super buff for the DMX montage. Now I only did the color keys for this, I cant take credit for the super cool designs and solid turn around, They were originally drawn by one of the character designers, Either Carlos Ortega, Zach Bellissimo or Stephanie Ramirez. And then of course they would have been scrutinized under the expert eye of our Art Director James Mcdermott and Color Supervisor, Jason Boesche! anyways, what i’m saying is. a lot of people worked on it, and its somewhat of a pipeline!
here are some background I worked on for episode 108! We were running late on some stuff so I got to help out with these backgrounds for the Rixty Minutes episode. the bottom two are from the two brothers sequence, I was a color artists, So i only did the coloring for these. I had some help from our amazing color lead Jason Boesche, who took the time to show me exactly what the art direction was. He really helped show me how the lighting would work for the explosion sequence, which came out really nice!
These are some more color keys for Episode 108! I loved working on the gazorpians, I cant take credit for their color schemes, that was all planed out by the people before me. but these guys looked so cool! I got to color all of those smashed cars from episode 7 which was awesome. I love vehicles, and next year I want to be the one designing them. Also Hampster butt people from Rixty Minutes. I think the final one was changed a bit to make it feel more 60’s. which was a good direction for it.
I’ve been working with Andy. who is a cool dude at Channel 101, to make an animated 5 min pilot. I think it will be done in flash. But here are some of the designs I’ve been working on.
This was the original design, But I have been perfecting a turn around
