I have an Animation major and Sequential Art minor from SCAD, graduated 2006. I currently work at a small animation studio in Atlanta. I love sculpting as a hobby and am constantly trying to wrangle ideas from my brain onto paper.

Also I play too many video games.
Hey all~

So a couple months ago it came up that I had to do some FX animation at work. I am entranced by FX animation but dont' have a lot of experience with it, so I went looking for reference. I found the exact effect I had to do in a scene from Pocahontas. I framed through it for reference but then was thinking how great it would be to amass a library of things like this to study from.

So I made a new tumblr account.

Pass it around, and leave me a comment if you follow it. I like to know where my followers come from ^_^

Thanks for the framebyframe site. It's really a huge help. I'm surprised to not see any Japanese toons on there, though. What software are you using to get the frames?

Super cute sculpts, btw!

thanks! yeah, i'm trying to get more just non-disney in general but they've got such a huge library it's hard for the scales to not tilt in that direction.

I make mp4 or m4v files from my dvds, then go through them in quicktime 7 pro, export image sequences, then make the gifs in photoshop (cs5).

Hi there! Sorry to bother you, but you're one of my watchers and I wanted to give you a heads up that I'm leaving DeviantART completely. I had switched accounts a year ago, so I wasn't using this one anymore. If you'd like to continue keeping up with my work, you can check out the links below. If not, that's okay too. Thank you for your support up to this point, it means a great deal to me! :heart:
