Kangaroo E-Card Final Animation

This is the final Kangaroo e-card cleaned up and colored in with backgrounds.
The only disclaimer is that this version is a kind of "director's cut".
I omitted the necktie to keep it gender neutral.

Anime work I've done for some projects...

A promotional piece for "Kappa Mikey" featuring the character Lilly Mu
Below are examples of run cycles I did of the character Mitzuki form "Kappa Mikey"
Both ruff and clean-up comparisons all done by me.
A run cycle of Speed from "Speed Racer-The Next generation"
Most of the above cycles where done for assets within a TV work flow
to use when necessary. All where done in Flash MX.

Second Place out of a record setting 182 entries for the 11 Second Club competition.

This is an assignment I did for Flashpotatoes that clinched second place out of a record setting 182 entries on Feb's 11 second club animation competition. Unfortunately, there's allot of choppiness in the video quality. Hoping to find a way to upload better videos soon.

Every now and then I will get an assignment that I'm genuinly proud of, one such is the bit of animation below.

Badly Drawn Roy "Re-Post" from Patrick Tuorto on Vimeo.

"Badly Drawn Roy" is a character assignment I got at Animation Collective Studios. He is born to real parents in Ireland and has to deal with being a 2-D character in a real world setting.
All the animation was done in Flash using a Wacom Tablet.

Ruff LayOuts/StoryBaords I did for "Captain Macaroni" an Animation Collective production of a Day Star show

This is a spot I did featuring "Gomez" the Baltimore Orioles Mascot. The client wanted to go a different direction mid production, as a result, the commercial only reached the ruff animation stage before it was pulled. The client was great to work with. I would definitely work with them again.

Early test experiment for my short

The first scene of both characters were animated on 12 field animation paper, then cleaned up and imported into Flash. The second shot of the boy shaking his head in disgust was animated digitally in Flash using a stylus, and wacom tablet.

"Hooked on Fishing"

This is my VERY first attempt at animating in Flash. And it's the only short in which I completed within a few days. The animation is very limited, but entertaining. Enjoy!!!:)

This scene was animated both on paper and in Flash MX. The first shot of the Sand Man was done digitally using a wacom tablet. The boy was animated traditionally on 12 field paper then imported into Flash. This was not easy, I had to clean up the drawings with a marker in order to create vector-based images for coloring. All the backgrounds where done in Flash.  video

Great Owl

This is a test I did of the Great Owl. I used dialogue from the movie "Excalibur" video
