So about Yin and Dave part 2

i know i promised that yin and dave part 2 would be finished at the end of this month, but it hasn't. i'd say i'm 65 percent done with part 2, with 90 percent of the animation finished and 20 percent of the coloring finished. however, due to work load, i've put the film aside for now. it'll definitely be finished before this year has ended but after working on it nonstop for 5 months, i think i need a break from it first. 

why did it take so long? because i actually went and SCRAPPED the first draft of part 2. i wasn't satisfied with how the animation and story was going. i ended scrapping a good 2 minutes of animation. i'm still beating myself with a stick for that.

still, there's so much i want to show you, even if it isn't finished. also its a lesson on planning better. here are three of my favorite shots. so here they are.

hopefully this will be a decent appetizer for whats to come.

Summer is kinda here

So I figured since summer's here (or officially supposed to be here but isn't since the rain's a pourin) I've decided to post drawings of icecream and the beach. They were actually supposed to be based off Lladro figurines is saw while i was surfing ebay but of course, the prices of the figurines make my eyeballs melt off their eye sockets. why not illustrate my own versions:

Misty Beach:

The Sweetest Girl:

And just for the heck of it, a chinese lady in hanfu:

Got some animation to post up soon!

A revamp of an old watercolor painting i did back. i'm starting to really like photoshop.

you guys are probably wondering whats happening with yin and dave part 2. well, due to some unexpected.... detours involving work, i've had no time to work on part 2. i also ended up scrapping half the animation since the story and animation wasn't going how i wanted it to be. the good news is that it'll give me more to animate and i have fresh ideas on how to take the direction. the bad news is is that you guys will have to wait.

still, here's a screenshot for you to let u know that work is in progress. thank you guys for your support!

I don't really use photoshop that often so I'd thought I'd  pick it up and attempt painting with it. I'm quite pleased with the results. Its a refreshing way to color since I constantly use flash all the time.

Yin and Dave part 1 is finally out!

Hey everyone. Yin and Dave part 1 is finally out on the web! Part two will be completed by the end of this year most likely. I finished the film as the plumber was at my house hehe.

I know this film was supposed to be done a month ago. Seeing that I had completed my thesis in a similar style, I greatly underestimated the time needed to complete. It actually takes a lot longer for me to color and composite than to animate. This film is more detailed than my thesis.

The inspiration for the film is not so much based on me, but based on people around me, partically my male non-asian friends who are dating asian women. Some of it is based off of my experience dating a non asian. Mostly tho, this film is really about cultural clash and racial clash. Many times I would bring non asian friends to my house as my parents would look at them kinda funny.

I'm psyched about part two. Now that I know how long it takes for me to color, I can better prepare.
Till then!

Yin and Dave

Yin and Dave is a new film that is coming out over this year. It'll be released in small increments over the year and hopefully be completed by early 2013. 
I know I said that the first two minutes will be released today, but due to side work, I wasn't able to. The film is coming along though and coming along great. Here are some screenshots of some finished scenes.
When the film is finished, I will upload it to Youtube and you will see it.
