2D Character Design vol.2

Exactly 1 year later, I've taken a stab at redrawing my little guy. So this is sort of a self progress check at how far my 2D skills have come while working at Powerhouse. There is definitely some progress here, some good and bad things, and things I will work on perfecting in the future.

Spoilers with Kevin Smith: Dick Van Dyke

Powerhouse Animation was recently asked to create several animated shorts for Kevin Smith's smodcasts. We've had a lot of fun working on these over the past few months. Now that they've been released I wanted to show off my (and my fellow Powerhousians') work.

In this "Dick Van Dyke" edition of the show I was in charge of VFX and post production. I got to make some interesting cartoon water and move some clouds about.
Get more info from the PHA blog or watch the full set of episodes on Hulu.
