Rocketeer Revamp (WIP)

Decided to revive an old sketch of mine and really put some detail into it this time around. Still have some details to flesh-out and color to add.

Dat Progress

Still needs a lot of lovin' in the details department. Spending time on this when I can. Regardless, an update!

Bumble Rhyhippogriff- Take Two!

Spent a bit more time on the original concept. Didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped it would. Nevertheless, I learned a lot and will take that knowledge onto the next piece! :)

More Progress...

Free-time is hard to come by when working two jobs. I'm also realizing how addicting it is to resculpt everything in the name of learning. Working on the cape and utility belt now; here is my progress thus far:


Making a habit of doing a nightly caricature, here's the lovely Caroline. :)

Did a quick caricature before bed of my friend, Max!... Highly enjoyable, must, do, more... O.O (approx. 2 hrs.)

Starting Small

For my first time animating in Maya, I really enjoyed it! Just a quick walk cycle to get myself familiar.

Fin! Brings a Rocketeer to my eye...

Finished this one up tonight. Had way too much fun with those clouds. :)

Inked-er up and added the values to it, next step is color, but, I'm still figuring out what I want to do with the area by the feet in order to better "ground" him... Word!

Night-time sketch WIP

I couldn't justify going to sleep without drawing something and since the Rocketeer is one of the coolest characters around, I decided to sketch him up in my own style. Color comes tomorrow!

Puppy Animation (Highmark)

A little animation I did for Highmark while working at Animal VFX. The characters are super simple to match the style of the commercial. I thought it was a fun challenge to take such simple/graphic characters and bring them to life as much as possible!

I handled the modeling/rigging and animation of both characters.

Highmark Commercials

Ok so I finally got the chance to upload some of the work I did for Highmark while working with Animal VFX. They're a great group of people, I had fun working with them and learned a lot!

I handled all of the character modeling/rigging/animation.

Makin' Drewwrrings...

It's been a productive day! Painted some of the creatures I came up with while drawing up logo idears based on my initials ( CJK )... Will eventually get to animating these little guys.

It's an Addams!

I've been watching a lot of the Addam's Family as of late. Painted this up because Gomez is my personal hero. More to come! :D

Good ol' Mechanical Hand... Thing.

This is an old compositing project I did for class when I was learning how to use After Effects. Its technically my first time blending a 3d model into a realistic background. Oh nostalgia...

Tinkering with a different style. I was really drawn to the Secret of Kells simple and streamlined look; so, I tried to incorporate some of those elements into a self portrait! :)

Rocketeer WIP...

I've always loved movies like the Rocketeer and realized that I've never really done any fan art since I was 16; so, I figured I'd try my hand at this! Its still in its rough stages, but, the ovular shapes will be Nazi zeppelins and I'm making an effort to revamp the Rocketeer's design to be a bit more futuristic while maintaining the integrity of the character. =D

Cyber/Mech-ish concept...

Did this one a while ago but never posted it on here, silly me.

Obama Meets the Economy...

Hey guys, check out one of the animations I did for Rob Rogers! I handled the animation and coloring, everything else was done by Rob and Jared.
