The Slimy Green Prince

I haven't had a chance to see any movies yet this summer so I decided to post artwork for the one I'm working on. I received a grant to make a short stop-motion animation about a frog prince and this is a poster I just finished for it.  I made 8 puppets from random junk (wires, pleather, clay, tape, etc...) With help from Ma I became pretty decent at sewing these things. I'm hoping to have it complete by the end of August.
This is a page of concept sketches I did before designing the frog puppet. It takes a lot of scribbling for me to come up with characters I like. 
This is the teaser trailer.  A friend pointed out the typo at the end so don't worry, i already know. I tried fixing it but am having too many problems with Quicktime and YouTube so I decided to just leave it.  ...This is actually my first post. I joined a year ago and completely forgot I joined.  I plan on contributing to the page now, but definitely won't be able to until I finish this beast.  Much work ahead!

Before & After...
360 degree panarama "Swinging Bridge" Yosemite. About 1/2 through I realized I was going to need to paint in some trees that I neglected to photograph...Opps! Hopefully it looks pretty seamless.

I'll start by kicking things off with the last movie I saw...

#18: Summer Movie Reviews


1)Draw a picture making a reference to a movie you have seen recently and state whether or not we should "SEE IT" or "SKIP IT" This is your chance to let us know what you think about the films you have seen lately.

2)Draw "what would you have done to make the movie better?": This is your chance to add/fix a scene, re-design of clothing/look of a character, new character/set, etc.

The movies don't have to be currently out in theaters, they just have
to be movies you have seen recently (movies that you have seen before but just watched again are also acceptable). Also, this might be a buzzkill, but try your best not to put spoilers from the movies with your artwork, in case any of us haven't seen the movies.

Have fun everyone!

Ends 7/25/08

Thanks to Januel Mercado for coming up with these great topics.

Have a great summer and fourth of July weekend everyone:)

Some Ish for Y'all

Here are a couple more tree-related items.

To anyone out there who is part of this blog, please post! Even if it's just a little doodle, it's great to have a vibrant collection of contributions and see what everyone is up to. It seems there are only a few of us left, and it is a real shame since I know a lot more of you than just the regular contributers have cool ideas to add to the mix.

Trees eh? Here's something wood-inducing...

If you boned her, do you think your wiener would get a rash?
