Introducing The Skrill!

Hey, everyone!!
The first thing I've ever directed is airing this very Thursday!!
"View to a Skrill Part 1" on Dragons: Defenders of Berk (Cartoon Network).
Here's a clip: View To A Skrill ( < click & scroll to the bottom of the article)
I'm pretty excited that the network has decided to air part 1 & 2 as a back to back 1 hour special! AWESOME!


Part 2 is directed by my pal John Sanford, and we both had a LOT of fun introducing this new dragon. I could not be any more proud of my team and co-workers that busted their butts getting this episode up and running. Not to mention, you all helped me get an Annie Nomination for directing it!!! GEEEEEEZ! Great work everyone. GO DRAGONS! And bring on the SKRILL!

Ink School 2

Still practicing and experimenting with some stuff I learned from the dudes at work. Here are some sketches I worked on today and yesterday. I wrote down what I think was going wrong at certain points to help myself remember what not to do. A brand new love affair with ink has begun!

TODAY
I've been starting with a rough pencil sketch. Helps me know where I'm goin'. 
Wanted to try experimenting with some hair texture today...
Notes to myself!
I hear white paint is great for covering up boneheaded mistakes! haha

Ink School

A very badass belated birthday gift was bestowed upon me this evening. A brand new ink brush, and a lesson in inking from theeeeeeee Ken Mitchroney & John Sanford! You guys!! YA! Thank you.
Here are the sketches that resulted from lesson #1.
All the side notes are things Ken instructed me with while we all drew together. WOW.
I started with pencil sketches, and then........INKED. yeeeeHawwwww.
Can't wait to get back to some more practice. Had a LOT of fun with this.
(using a brand new Windsor Newton ~ Series 7 #2 brush) Thanks, John!!

Moving forward, I'd like to work on getting better weight in my line and nicer volume in my drawings overall. Practice practice practice!
