A work-in-progress clip from a new episode of Reboot/Damaged Bads I'm working on, it used to be in 2d, now it will be in 3d. Woo woo. 

 


20 min flash animation from 2009.. finally released :D

I started working on this animation back in 2009, but my computer crashed and I lost the ability to edit any of the flash files. Luckily, I was able to salvage some swf files and convert them to HD, and then edit everything together in good old Final Cut Pro 7. Isn't it sad that flash is kinda dead? As I was converting everything for this animation, I started to realize that 2008/2009 was really the height of flash. Now we're just going backwards, and Apple not adopting flash has set everything back quite a bit. 

I was creating a DVD/Blu-ray recently, and I suddenly realized how old-fashioned DVD's are now. They're like floppy disks, they're useless. So I am creating a DVD menu, and I think to myself, what is the point? So someone can watch in 480p? It's pointless. Blu-ray is nearing pointlessness too, although thankfully it's in HD so you don't have to decrease resolution to create it. After 4K, what is the point? I don't want to animate past 4k, that's too much fucking detail. The render time for a 3d animation in 4k must be fucking insane... it already is at 1080p. Maybe Google's quantum computers can speed up rendering before they take over the world.

What was I talking about? Oh yeah, this animation... it was based on a series of levels I did in Little Big Planet. The storyline is much different from the series now. I wish I could go back and clean up a lot of the artwork, but like I said, the flash files are corrupted. I had high hopes for this project, I think there's a lot of passion in it, I bit off way more than I could chew. Check out Little Big Apocalypse: Lost Episode!

I"m a big fan of the youtube music channel #NewRetroWave and I decided to do a NewRetroWave-inspired logo for the next episode of my series Little Big Apocalypse. This is actually cut directly out of the episode. This episode is taking a little longer than planned because i have to learn a bunch of new things so I can keep advancing how each episode looks.

I've uploaded a few things to the art portal recently:

I'm not sure when this episode will be done, I have to finish a lot of it but most of the assets are complete so that's half the battle. I'm going to get going but here's a pic from the newest episode.

Hey everyone!

Check out the newest episode of Little Big Apocalypse! Inspired by Five Nights at Freddys! I am also releasing a very simple exploreable unity level of an area from the animation! I hope to eventually make the series a Unity-based FPS game of some kind, still have to learn alot of unity though(im a total noob)! Here are a few screens.

Little Big Apocalypse 5 Renders

Hey everybody!

About a month ago I released Little Big Apocalypse 4, and it made it to the frontpage. Here are some images from the new episode, I started working on all the assets and models right after finishing the last episode. Episode 5 is kind of ambitious, and will, again, really test how much I can accomplish in 3d.

It's exhausting work trying to finish these in a month, in my free time... but I think I'm making some progress, both in terms of using 3d animation and using a pipeline to finish a product in a set amount of time. I really want to keep up this momentum! Learning 3d has made me really excited for animating again, it's also worth remembering I've only been doing this for a little over a year, so if you think it's impossible to learn 3d it's not!

I finished the script and now I'm working on designing all the assets for the new episode of Little Big Apocalypse. It's 5 pages long, and I sent it to my voice actors, so while I'm waiting for them to record I'm trying to finish as much as I can.

This episode is really strange, and like episode 4, does not happen in the comic. I'm also trying to complete it in a month, like the last episode, but this episode is much more complicated.

Five Night's at Freddy's fans will find a lot to like in this episode, but it takes it in a completely different direction, maybe even more disturbing. If it wasn't disturbing it wouldn't be my style :P

New animation released. Check it out! I'm not sure how many episodes I'll create, these episodes take a lot of effort, Hopefully a few people are enjoying it :)

Recently, I noticed there are so many movies being pushed through judgement that have 0 reviews. There needs to be more critiquing so artists can get better! :O and the community can thrive!! :D

 


REBOOT and Little Big Apocalypse in 4K (2160p)

Hey everybody,

I've recently been cleaning up my youtube page cause it was a depressing mess (it might still be :/) and I decided to upload all my cartoons in 4k! It's pretty crazy seeing everything close up without any slowdown. I didn't realize how much detail I put into certain things that just aren't apparent in the flash versions.

In the next few days I'm uploading all the REBOOT series in 2160p, probably way too high but fuck it, I want people to see every crappy pixel in the beauty of 4K!.. but actually since there is no slowdown, the crappy pixels sort of blur together to form, what I like to call ART (burn). Anyway now that I"m done totally burning the people I'm trying to get to watch my cartoons :D, Here are some embeds with custom-made thumbnails to entice you into clicking, if you don't click? You'll miss that super special thing I put in that you will love, yup. Check out some REBOOT and LITTLE BIG APOCALYPSE!

LIttle Big Apocalyse 2 (Watch this one it's so detailed! :O)

REBOOT 12 1/2 - I might reupload these because I think I might have exported them at a slightly lower resolution than I was supposed to.



If you like any of this stuff subscribe on youtube and you can see each video pop up in your feed :D
