More pictures from Christmas animation

Finished drawing more pictures for my Christmas animation I'm making for my family and friends. Updated images of the main characters and also the background as well. Will post more pics as I make more progress. Enjoy.

Almost forgot to mention

Although I really enjoy creating lots of different little animations and experiments my first goal is to create my first animated short film. For this it may take a little while because I want to make sure I have the best camera I can afford and build and a great set and puppets.

What I do already have done is the fully fleshed out idea and finished second draft of script. I am currently working on the visuals for the two main characters and the layout of the set. It's all figured out in my head and I just need to get it out on paper.

In the meantime here are a couple of first glimpses at the main characters, "Murphy" (Top) and "Yeldarb"(Bottom). Enjoy.

Christmas is coming up soon

This year I've decided to attempt to make a special Christmas animation for my kids and some of my younger extended family. It's about a guy and a snowman. The script is written and I've made my first sketch of the main character. Hoping to finish designing visuals by next week. In the meantime, please enjoy a first look at the main character.

Hello world.

Hey there, and welcome to my animated life. This is a blog about a me (a husband and father of three) and my wonderful and sometimes chaotic experiences as I attempt to balance marriage, fatherhood and a passion to create my stop-motion animations. Join me as I post updates of all my animation creations as I go step-by-step making each project. They will all be stop-motion but that doesn't mean they will all be the same. Will post again and often....if my kids let me :)
