I have not been around here for a long time...

Postby jjohnson » Sun Jun 10, 2012 1:28 am

I have been gone from the A.N. forums for a long while! We had a big move to a new house, and we couldn't sell our old house for many many months!! For a long while, we were paying the bills on two properties. But, all that is over now, we finally sold our old house and are just now beginning to get caught up financially again! I have been working on creative things when I can and thought I would share a few here in the A.N. Gallery.

This cartoon illustration is a humorous take on a zombie that I have put on a get well soon greeting card in my online store and on a T-shirt design in another online store of mine...

Alien Warrior_card_low_res.jpg
This cartoon illustration was done just for fun and practice. Then I came up with a good use for it! I put it on a name specific birthday card for boys in my online greeting card store...

the_final_Dark_shadows_fever_low_res.jpg
I did this illustration for the "Dark Shadow" contest on DeviantArt. I didn't win but I had a lot of fun with it. I inked the black and white lines in Illustrator and finished the color in PSD and ArtRage...
Karen_J_Nikki_Sixx_final_low_res.jpg
I did this portrait of Nikki Sixx for my cousin. I drew the black and white lines in an ipad app. called DoInk and finished the color in PSD on my mac. I liked the way in turned out...

This cartoon dragon was drawn on paper and inked with a thin black marker. I scanned it in and painted it on my ipad in the ArtRage app. with watercolor brushes. I used it on a greeting card in my store...

This was done in the iPad app DoInk. I couldn't get the embed to work so here is a Vimeo link...

Another short animation...

Postby jjohnson » Sun Jun 10, 2012 6:35 am

This one is on my deviantart page...

http://fanimation.deviantart.com/art/Pencil-test-Fright-Night-for-Burglars-294789589

The animated gif on my deviantart page moves slow and jerky but you can see each individual drawing better. This Vimeo video has faster timing and smoother movement...

One more short one...

Postby jjohnson » Sun Jun 10, 2012 6:40 am

This one has sound and is my attempt at a fish turning in the water...

https://vimeo.com/39960085

As you can see I could not quite get the sound in sync with the movement yet!

Great to see you back on AN again John. Glad you're finding time to create especially with the pressures you've been dealing with.

To embed Vimeo video, take this part of the url... vimeo.com/"39593624"... and paste in between the vimeo brackets. Here's the result...




Same thing with the second video. Take this part of the url... vimeo.com/"39960085"... and paste it between the vimeo brackets... [vimeo][/vimeo] .... and it shows up like this...
