My first attempt at a "Making Of"


video

I've been wanting to try doing a "making of" video for a while, and when I heard about Screenr, I thought it was time to get off my backside and give it a shot. Screenr is pretty sweet - it's a web app so no installation is involved, and if you like you can publish right to twitter. I just downloaded my clips and edited with iMovie. I got the music from Musopen, a very good source for public domain classical music.

So, voila - I'm a filmmaker. Orson Wells ain't got nothin' on me.

They look like big, good, strong hands. Don't they?




My first thought for the Illustration Friday topic of "crunchy" was the Rockbiter from Neverending Story. My first sketch was him happily munching on some rocks, but then I realized that I much better remember him sad and waiting for death after (spoiler alert) he's failed to save his friends from The Nothing. So that's what I went with because I thought it'd be far more interesting.

This has now made me nostalgic for the film, so I think I'll be getting it at the library this week. Especially as *gasp* my wife has never seen it! Although it probably won't hold up and I'll totally ruin my view of the film. Ah well.

Entangled


My under-the-wire submission for the Illustration Friday theme of "entangled". I haven't drawn any superhero stuff in a while. Maybe it has to do with me reading tons of Batman comics recently - wrong universe, but still...

If you're wondering to yourself "why Electro, he's super lame?", my answer to you is: because he's super lame. I couldn't resist drawing the ridiculous outfit of his. How does he get through doorways with that thing!?!
