Movies that I love- Poltergeist (1982)




Basically, this is my favorite haunted house movie of all time(yes, even better than the Haunting in my book), full of ghosts, monsters and even a pool full of skeletons!

Costa Rican Futbol- Saprissa beats La Liga


My uncle Humberto, who passed away this year, can't be happy in heaven right now, as his(our) beloved Liga Deportiva Alajuelense loses to their most hated foe on our home turf!

Ancient Egyptians value study notes

It's important for me to annotate my value studies for the colorist, because there's some stuff that just needs to be documented in a manner other than visual.

You can pre-order the trade paperback HERE

Ancient Egyptians value study- keep track of the main characters

I try to mark the characters that the audiences need to focus slightly differently so they are easier to discern.

Ancient Egyptians value study issue 3

I know the trees are outrageously out os scale, but once in a while you've got to have a little Kong Skull Island mixed into the story.

Apollo 13 storyboards 033

Almost done posting this sequence, thinking about what's next, and I do have a few more cards up met sleeve:

It's dinosaur Thursday!




The first pic is of the animatronic dinosaurs being brought in for the 1964 New York World's fair.

The second one is just pretty darn cool.

Another arrow fest

Today you'd have to draw all of these movements and motions in different, separate panels, since storyboards are not constructed as final documents, but rather assets for animatics.

Ancient Egyptians Trade Paperback publication


It should come to all five of you that the Ancient Egyptians TPB is coming out with a wrap-around cover. I like it that way and it honestly keeps the ads off of the back cover.

This baby drops on January 6, 2016, and here's a link to where you can order it.
Dark Horse will mail it right to you:

Two for Wednesday- a storyboard style contrast


I thought it might be interesting to post two storyboard panels from two different shows, in this case Apollo 13 and Muppet Wizard of Oz, just to beta sense of the style and contrast that storyboards need to have from show to show.

Another Hulk animated series storyboard


The name of the show is so silly that I won't mention it, but here ya go.

Back to more Muppet and Apollo storyboards tomorrow.

Harryhausen, Gwnagi, and me


Anybody that knows me understands how much I like Valley of Gwangi, and here's a short documentary on the picture.

Enjoy the weekend, you won't get it back!

Everything you'll ever want to know about a shark attack and were afraid to ask...


Anybody that thinks shark attacks are slow and agonizing like in the movies- well, just watch this!

Disney dinosaur mystery

I drew this twenty years ago for the disney dino movie, totally forgot about it and yet found it on the internet.

Strange.

This might be a Spinosaurus, ironically.

Apollo 13 storyboards 028

God this drawing's horrible. Looks like a milk carton lining up with a spark plug.

What's up with all the arrows?

Directional arrows in storyboards are things of the past, and dates this board panel. Now storyboards are used in animatics, which makes them unnecessary.

New Japanese Star Wars Trailer

I usually do not post on Fridays, but here's a Japanese Star Wars trailer with new footage:


Warning! Spoilers.

Mediocre!


Immortan Joe would find my storyboards of this movie to be mediocre!

More Apollo 13 storyboards

I'm going to start off November by posting a few storyboards from the docking sequence:

Happy Halloween from Fuseli and Dreyer

First, the original piece, entitled the Nightmare, by Henry Fuseli, circi 1781:


And now the painting's influence in the silent film by Theodor Dreyer (one of my favorite vampire films) titled Vampyr:


Yes, the old lady's a vampire!



Happy Halloween!

Predator (1987)


Aliens (1986)



Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1979) remake



An American Werwolf in London (1981)

Sam Specter- Cover in progress


Notice how the scanned roughs are in their respective places, and how I am starting to digitally ink the characters, though on individual layers so I can reposition as needed.

Ancient Egyptians, issue four, page 20

Thought some of you might want to see how the inked pages look before the color process sets in.
