Just to let you know, artist extrordinaire, David Finch has a blog site up featuring his amazing work. It has some really, really cool stuff. I can't tell you guys how much I admire David's work. His character stuff is really fun, and if you haven't checked out some of his feature development stuff in films like Watchmen, well, what are you waiting for? He has really cool development projects going as well. Can't wait to see what transpires on them in the future!!
More pages will be forthcoming very soon. Work progresses at a pretty good clip.
So I will be posting some more art for your naked steaming eyes very shortly.
I know most of you can't wait, so I will be posting a teaser image in the next couple of days...
Seriously, I do love all of the love being thrown my way. It is very gratifying to know that people I respect and admire think I'm doing a good job with Knights. You have no idea how inspiring that is to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
Some images from character designs that I may or may not use. I am debating using the middle
one of the Snake Knight, I may use the design but probably NOT for her. These were when I was developing the project for Cartoon Network, and going back and looking at them now, I still really really like 'em!..I dunno, what do you guys think?
Finished up the first chapter of Knights this afternoon. I am very pleased with the first book, and can't wait to start doing actual pages for you to see.
My main focus to make sure that everyone really gets these character's personalities. It went a lot smoother than I anticipated, probably because I've had these characters and their story in my head for a long time now. Although it went from 8 pages to 16 to 22 to 45!! I let them do the talking and didn't try to "rush" them so it came out to what it came out to. I may try to trim here and there, but honestly, I found the story needed the room.
After several years of pitching this concept to Cartoon Network, Disney, Nelvana and getting a favorable response from all, only to have it dashed or "tweaked" to a point of unrecognizability,
I finally feels good to do this on my own. The way I always intended.
There are so many stories to tell, that I want to make sure the origin isn't boring or feels rote.
I am confident that by the time it is completely finished, it won't .
Storyboard artist and Director. I am constantly trying to get better at this art stuff. It is so inspiring to see so much talent, and not the least bit intimidating;) It is so nice to be able to share some of my stories and work for general consumption. It is so important to try and retain the things that gave us such wonder as kids. It is something I strive for in my work, and find that it gets harder and harder to hold onto as the days pass.
Stay thirsty my friends!!!
