In the spirit of actually creating content for the blog again, i present Captain Benjamin Sisko.
This is actually the first small step in what will be an ongoing project where i draw and then sculpt sci-fi characters that i love. I basically just finished watching ALL of Star Trek Deep Space 9 which is probably where i will start!

I don't have a lot of experience sculpting really, but it's something that I've enjoyed doing in the past and is something that i want to get better at! if anyone has any good tips on armature making or any critique for this or any of the work that i post in the future, please don't hesitate to weigh in!

Thanks!

Cicada Princess short film NEEDS YOUR HELP!

I haven't ever checked out Kickstarter before, but after seeing this, i feel like it's something i should make a point to look at more often.

Www

A word from the director:

Cicada Princess is a short film based on a children's book by the same title, both written and produced by Mauricio Baiocchi (Mauchi) with illustrations and character designs by Steve Ferrera.

Through miniatures and puppets, we follow the lives of the Cicadas emerging from the ground where they have been waiting as grubs for sixteen years. The Cicadas gather for the grand ball at the castle, knowing that when the sun rises their lives will come to an end.

The images and footage explain the project much better than words as does theCicada Princess website. The HD version of the video lives here.

Thanks for your support.

- Mauchi

If you're able to, definitely try and pledge some support!

Apple Bump for the Moonbot App!

Ipadapp_screencap

With the release of Moonbot's new Interactive Storybook App getting near, Apple is excitedly sharing it with others at trade and promotional events as one of the top new innovative Apps utilizing the power of the iPad 2. Our App is set to release later this month, but for now you can read some kind words about it HERE, on the Silicon Valley Mercury News.

Here is an excerpt:

The other day at the Apple Store in San Francisco, team members offered this newspaper a sneak peek at some of the latest and coolest apps to come down the pike, including a few not yet released to the general public. Here are our favorite five: ... The problem with apps is that they increasingly defy description. Take this creation of Louisiana-based Moonbot Studios for example ... this app deftly weaves together the tactile with the emotional, leaving the user mesmerized by the journey.

Needless to say, we are super-excited and can't wait to share this new App with you. We will share when it is available on the App Store, so you can experience this new interactive experience! Coming very soon!

(quoted from Joe Bluhm from the Moonbot Studios blog.)

Beautiful Google logo by Ryan Woodward!

Check out this Google Logo by Ryan Woodward: http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en&tab=ww

If you thought that was cool then you'll love his short animation. I've watched it a million times and it's no less moving than the first time.

Awesome Artbreak Animation Wall 2011!!

This is a video for a really cool project that was done at "Artbreak". Artbreak is a student arts festival held in Shreveport La it celebrates the art programs and artistic achievements of students in Caddo and Bossier Parish Schools.

This animation was done by Moonbot Studios in collaboration with the Robinson Film Center.

 

<p>Artbreak Animation Wall 2011 from Evan Falbaum on Vimeo.</p>

 

"This stop-motion animation project is the result of a collaboration between the Robinson Film Center, Moonbot Studios, and over 200 kids at Shreveport's annual Artbreak student art show. It was recorded over the course of 3 days.


The animation itself is comprised of 736 still images (or "frames") played back at 10 frames per second for 73.6 seconds of video (or 1 minute 14 seconds).

The process involved drawing, erasing, and redrawing a character over and over for each frame of the animation. So one second worth of animation would equate to ten separate drawings of the same character, gradually changing or moving in each iteration.

The wall itself was 60 feet long and 8 feet tall and we recorded the images on a Canon 7D that was mounted to a 60-foot homemade dolly track. Each shot was taken at one-inch intervals on the track so that when assembled, it would create the illusion of a moving dolly shot. So at 10 frames per second, it takes just over a second to move a foot on the dolly track."

Pokemon



So if my post about painting stuff for Warhammer 40k wasn't enough i figured i'd seal the deal and post Pokemon i drew, if there's any doubt of my nerdiness, surely it has evaporated.

40k Stuff

Just for the nerdyness of doing so, i'm also going to post some of the other projects i do (mainly painting Warhammer 40k Stuff.

I'm starting painting my Leman Russ, so to start slow on it i painted the turret and the executioner and demolisher cannon barrels just to kind of get back into painting models again, anyway, here are a couple pictures!



Monsters and puppets



Hello all, here are a couple of doodles did in the last couple of days, I wouldn't really call any of them done, even as pencil drawings. I want to ink them all eventually, but it's something i'm trying to learn a lot more about before i dive in and potentially wreck a drawing.

If you have any advice on inking or anything i'd love to hear it!

Thanks!
