I've managed to find two hours to rub together long enough to bring you a short weekend trip around the internet.
First I'd like to bring you Chrisis.org. Bill Presing's corner of the web. Bill is a storyboard artist at Pixar Animation. His previous animation work has been seen on WB Gotham Girls, Cartoon Networks's The Venture Brothers, Disney's Doug, PB&J Otter, and his work on the Rosie O'Donnel SHow opening sequence won him an Emmy. Bill's work has been a constant source of inspiration for me on Invasion.
Sam weber brings you: Sampaints.com A great portfolio section
His stuff has turned up in the Dallas Observer a local alternative news publication.
I love the sketchbook section. It gives the impression of being loose, but actually is tight as hell. He seem to really get off on drawing lots of branches and individual strands of hair.
Cooky! But I still enjoy it!
Alright, now onto something totaly time consuming! Bibi's Box.
Now I know what you're thinking, but get your mind out of the gutter it's not that kind of blog! This is self described blog of "A curious girl blogging to share and enjoy!" The content is updated often and always inspiring. It's good nurishment for the creativly curious.
Alright, so you have investigated those sites, and still want more!? Well buckle your seatbelts and put your peepers on this! Them5 is going to rock your creative mind! Design, and Motion with a bunch of 3D projection to boot never looked so good. Plus, the web interface is cool as hell.
Ok, so now your inspired and ready to grab your art supplies and start cranking! If you are like I am, you started drawing a Lion, after seeing the holy moly amazing wonderful CG Lion in this:
Chapter V of the Narnia video journal. The CG test of the Lion is the best thing in the entire chapter! Yes, that lion is CG!! Woozers!
So you'll need animation motion reference. And you'll want to look at these! We got the 2nd series at work, and they are great reference. The DVD interface is ill-thought-out, but the content is great! It's awesome reference for any movements you can think of.
But wait, there is more! For dessert I want to turn you onto: Arthur De Pins.com! Great work and fun animation!
Now at posting this, Joel Trussell's site had Exceeded Bandwith. However, if you still can't get enough of the onslaught of creative coolness I've pitched at you check back when he gets the lights back on. It's on my list of awesome sites to show you. So it's gotta be good!
I hope you enjoyed your short trip through the internet with me. I'll post more soon.
