Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth

I have to admit, being a toy designer is a pretty sweet gig. I'm constantly adding new works of art to my portfolio, the groupies are a great perk, and they pay me in ribs. For the past two years I have been very happy camper...although...every once in a while there comes a project that makes even the burliest man (like myself) flee in terror.

Yes, that image is correct. I, Dennis, World Class Manly Man, was forced against my will to sketch, sculpt, and render a My Little Pony character.


Now I'll admit, when I wasn't trying to lodge a pencil into my frontal lobe, some of these images actually turned out pretty good.

Despite the quality of these images, a six hour long shower of barbecue sauce and motor oil was required after completion.

Nothing Beats the Original

I should probably just suck it up and buy it through Steam considering my 360 has been collecting dust on my TV stand for about 6 months now.

Welcome Foolish Mortals!

Well, it's been QUITE the October. I apologize for my short absence, but I've been gearing up for the Halloween event of the year! Needless to say, it was a night of fun, friends, and frights! Speaking of frights, I've got lots of spooky art from this month. That zombie behind you wants to know if you're scared yet... (Zombie moaning sounds)

To start, here's some concept art of a quick animation I created. I had a pretty kick ass cemetery set up; complete with nooses, tombstones, an iron fence, and this spooky couple:

These two were modeled, animated, and projected onto a 6' by 5' homemade screen amongst the graves. Unfortunately, all the videos and pictures from that night came out WAY too dark to see anything. So these stills and the actual animation will have to do. I just hope you don't wet yourself after witnessing these two specters...

Alright change outta those urine soaked pants because I've got more! I held a pretty big Halloween party this year. It was a fantastic turn out and I decorated every room on the first floor of my house. That includes a massive harvest-themed tent outside complete with a giant Ouija board (For drinking games, of course).
Amongst all my interior decorations, I created these creepy portraits featuring a few of my close friends. Stop crying, the scariest has yet to come...

That's right, your ghost host with the most! These spooky beauties were printed out full-scale and hung up throughout my house. If you'd like to check some pictures from the party, just jump over to my Facebook page. I'm too lazy to post them here. I hope you all had a happy Halloween! Oh, and watch out for that vampire behind you...
