More stuffs...

Sick of the Tigre stuff yet? I'll post up these few and then it's back to my personal stuff. I've got some 8 Bit stuff to show soon.

In the meantime, here's one of the shots from the opening of the show. It's a Gabe\Steve combo. Basically I drew the first pass, ruined it and Gabe fixed it with his magic. Luckily I get to make up for my suckiness with digi-paint.


A villain pan I did for "Sole of a Hero". Storyboard by Fred Gonzales.

And finally some of the gross out shots from "Night of the Living Guacamole". I made pretty colors on top of Fred Osmond's awesome drawings. Boulder also did a real cool job of animating the eyes and mouth on top of the images in flash.


So despite what I'm showing so far, very little of my time on the show is spent painting. I'd say about 90.345% of my time is spent on design and posing. One of the biggest benefits of my job is the people I get to train with. On one side, I have the great Gabe Swarr supervising my poses, and on the other, the amazing Jorge Gutierrez going over my designs. Lots of learnin' to be had each day!

Here's some stuff from the earlier episodes:



The idea for the horse came from Chuck Jones fat horse Bugs rides in "What's Opera, Doc". His legs were lengthened later to make the hooves more threatening.


Here's a giant rock monster from "Sole of a Hero". Unfortunately he got cut because of time.


One of Frida's dad's guard dogs from "Enter the Cuervo". I thought it came out pretty cool till I had to pose him out a lot.



And finally a few of the poses I actually liked. This was during the time we were switching from pencil and paper to drawing directly into flash with the cintiq. Very rusty babysteps.

SONOFFFABEAAACCHHHHHHHHH !!!!! Damn boy. Just when i thought you we're at the top of your game,..you go and climb higher. Your painting has jumped about ten notches my friend. Always good with the pallettes and textures but these are an all time high. Fantastico as El Tigre might say.

I really liked the bubbles in Grampa's beard on the sick painting. That was one of the best takeaway images from that episode. It's cool that you were a part of it!

Hey steve

I'd like to include some of your work in my book BEYOND TRENDS, being published this year by HOW Books, f&W pubs, (they do HOW magazine, Print magazine, ID MAg, blah blah blah). Anyway, only cool shit is goin in it, and I was wondering if you would be interested in sending along some work? My day job is as creative director/futurist at Hasbro. You can reach me at mmattus@hasbro.com

thanks

Matt

Georgous , stuff man.I love that villain pan so much. And yeah , Having some sort of Design assignment that a bunch of people could do at the same time would be rad.Infact right after that Cal Arts class, a few of us started talking about what themes could be next. I'll let you know when we get going for sure.It could turn into a blog.
