JacJac With Straight Hairs

Aug. 9, 2012, midnight

So I got this text pic from girlfriend last night showing off her awesome newly straightened hair. I had my sketchbook open and my markers out, so working from my tiny cell phone I sketched this quickly before bed.

Olympic Runner

Aug. 8, 2012, midnight

Just sat down after watching the 200 meter sprint on the 2012 Olympics and felt like sketching. Out popped an Olympic runner. Or at least, a runner. Or at least, a poor sketch of a runner.

Poor Damaged Mouse

Aug. 5, 2012, midnight

I was out on the back porch of my Aunt's lovely house in Laguna Hills, writing a letter at around 1:00 am. Forgetting that the house contained a cat who moonlights as an escape artist, I neglected to close the sliding door all the way.

The cat escaped and ran into the night. Maybe ten minutes later, it came back chasing a mouse which was making the most alarming noises I've ever heard come from something so small. I witnessed the cat succeed in catching the mouse in its jaws & prance happily back into the darkness, the mouse's raspy squeals losing their biting volume as it's lungs fail.

So recently I've been working on a rigging/animation editor for my game project, Optimism. A couple days ago I finished up some of the skeletal modelling features and came up with these images after playing around with it for a while.

Optimism - Character Design (5)

Aug. 1, 2012, midnight

We're thinking of reverting to a simpler style of character for Optimsm, mostly in order to get a more stylized and "cute" look to it, but also because we're gonna have to draw so many freaking characters.

Optimism - Blog Design Update

July 31, 2012, midnight

Did some minor design adjustments to the Optimism blog, which I designed a few months ago. The biggest thing is a new background image with a star field and a laser bolt, both of which I did in Photoshop.

Some ideas for different component door mechanisms. Still haven't really settled on one.

Optimism - Component Design (2)

July 17, 2012, midnight

Individual parts of the first component graphic. We probably won't end up using this design, partly because the corner mount points overlap when open (as you'll probably notice in the third tech demo), but mostly because it doesn't really fit the style we're going for.
