The Good Little Bunny with the Big Bad Teeth by Jessica Borutski

The Good Little Bunny with the Big Bad Teeth from Foolish K. Bunny on Vimeo.



Pretty amazing animation/backgrounds in this short. Pretty awful message, but otherwise a rock solid short.

I'm still alive! I'm just working on lots of different things, so nothing will be finalized for a little while.

I have a Twitter now! GO HERE!
And how about a Facebook fanpage? GO HERE!
And maybe a Hyperboy fanpage, too? ALSO A LINK!

Have a great New Year! Hope your holidays were rad! :)

The Illusionist Trailer



HOLY CRAP A NEW MOVIE BY SYLVAIN CHOMET.

Meet Buck by TeamCerf

Meet Buck from TeamCerf on Vimeo.



Man I could really get behind this 3D stylized as 2D kind of deal. First Salesman Pete, now this? I think we need to see a feature film in this style...

Mega Man MMO Teaser



Soooo I guess there's a MegaMan MMO being made in Korea? That's pretty amazing. I'd play the SHIT out of it.

Either way, this animation is amazing. I love Mega's badass drop from the the rooftop.

Zblu Cops Teaser



Oh my god, that was amazing.

That's a teaser for Zblu Cops, a French comic book put out by THESE DUDES.

Quite possibly my favorite artists ever right now. A lot of the stuff they do is in French, but if you wanna experience the joy that is their comics, read THIS BOOK. You will not regret it. It is perfect. From the artwork, to the designs, to the writing, it is an amazing thing.

I really wish their stuff would get translated into English more often. Especially Zblu Cops. It's like everything I want Zeus Guy to be.

Keyframe Caddy Tool

CloudKid, a Flash animation studio, has just released an add-on to Flash that is the greatest thing ever. I've played around it with it a bit, and it's super duper amazing. Watch the video:



It makes lip sync SOOOO EASY. ARGHHH I LOVE IT. THANK YOU CLOUDKID.

V-V-VIDEO GAAAMES



Holy crap this looks beautiful. I am probably gonna love this game.



What a weird concept. But definitely interesting...

Retro City Rampage OFFICIAL Trailer from Vblank on Vimeo.



This is like a weird mash-up of every NES game ever...



My friends went to a local Gameworks (it's like a giant arcade) and played the SHIT out of this game. It's so awesome and cartoony, and you feel like you're ACTUALLY shooting a gatling gun at giant robots. One of the most rewarding experiences ever. And there's a weapon called the COLOSSUS MISSILE. AND IT MAKES A GIANT MUSHROOM CLOUD WITH A FROWNY FACE ON IT.

That is all. Carry on.

Parov Stelar Dance



A little different from what I usually post, but I just love this dance so much, I had to share it. It's how I would dance if I actually practiced all day, and not only at weddings.

Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys



Yesyesyesyesyesyes.

I like MCR quite a bit as they are, but if you add this much silliness and awesome shit to them....I think I might LOVE them. I hope the new album is awesome.

If you haven't read Umbrella Academy, shame on you. It is an amazing comic series. And it seems a lot of that influence is creeping back into Gerard's music.

Capcom Trailers GOOO!



Although I haven't really played any of the games, I've always been a fan of Devil May Cry from a distance. The main trailer for the 3rd game is still one of my favorite game trailers, if not THE favorite. I think the series as a whole is one of the best things to happen to modern gaming, and its attitude and tone is definitely an influence on me.

Not sure what to think about this reboot(?) Capcom is putting out. Seems everyone is pissy over Dante's new look. I can't say I disagree. It's definitely less interesting, and the best part about Dante is he was cool WITHOUT smoking. The creator made sure to exclude that cliche character trait.

But fanboy stuff aside, that's an awesome trailer. Rad music mixed with rad action makes for a happy Gene. I just hope they listen to people's complaints and figure out a way to save this from mediocrity.



I don't know what this is, but I want it...NOW.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while! I haven't really found any cool videos until now.

I went to San Diego Comic Con, had a blast. Met some awesome people. Will definitely be attending next year.

For those of you that like Hyperboy, I have some good news. Read THIS JOURNAL. It's got good news about the series!

And I finally posted that Kill All Superheroes comic that I was gonna do for Zuda before it shut down. Here it is in it's entirety:

I'll be at San Diego Comic Con this week! If you're going, come find me! I'll be walking around, wearing some bright shirts, probably. Please stop me and say hi! I'd love to meet some fans! :)

In Search of the Wind by John Su



Argh, I knew John Su was awesome at illustrating in Flash, but ANIMATION, TOO?

I think just in terms of visuals, he's right up there with Adam Phillips. Adam just has more skill with actual animation.

Either way, I still have a LOT to learn. :C



This tops even John Su's work. For those of you who don't yet know about this, it's called Wakfu and it is amazing. It's animated in Flash, which is mind-blowing. But I assume they do a lot of post production work on it in After Effects. Either way, it's gorgeous and awesome and you should try to find the show and watch it.

The game the series is based on is also made in Flash, and it's pretty cool as well.

That's all for now! Stay awesome!

Waterman The Movie



Hey guys, give some money love to the Waterman Movie project on Kickstarter. I used to love the hell out of those Flash animations, and I give them due credit in giving me the confidence to make my own series. So without the work of Bryan Waterman, you might not have ever seen Hyperboy. So donate some money, we have to start contributing to indie projects like this if we ever want the industry to change for the better.

I'll be doing the exact same thing soon, with Zeus Guy. I'll need all of your support to help fund it since, to quote Bryan, I am only ONE MAN. I need help from my fans, and so does he. For now, donate what you can to his project, and when the time comes, I'll politely ask you guys to throw some money in my direction. It would mean a lot! :)

Stay awesome!

Hyperboy Fan Videos!

So apparently, Hyperboy has gained quite a bit of extra love lately. How did I miss this stuff??



This fella makes cool sprites for the Mugen game engine. I think he might have asked permission to use Hyperboy a while ago, but I totally forgot about it. People will sometimes ask to use Hyperboy for cameos and then nothing ever comes of it. But this sprite is looking badass! I'm totally excited to play this! :D



This is also pretty neat. Definitely flattering to see somebody put in the time to make something like this. :)



I honestly never thought someone would ever make a Hyperboy AMV. The choice of music is a bit odd (even though I have seen Hollywood Undead in concert and I like em, I just don't think it fits Hyperboy that well...) I also wish the compression and stuff wasn't so shitty, but I really appreciate them taking the time to make this! It's very awesome! :)

SEND ME THE STUFF YOU GUYS DO. I LIKE SEEING IT.

Also, I'm a college graduate now? Huh? When did this happen? :O

STAY AWESOME, DUDES.

Argh, that is epic. I need to learn how to Sylar people's talents out of them.



AHHHH, THIS MOVIE KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER!!!



I doubt the game will be as awesome as its trailer. But still...that looks pretty rad.

Production on Zeus Guy has entered into the animatic phase, and I'm currently on Scene 4 out of like...12. It's pretty tedious, but it's looking pretty good, I think. :)

STAY FRESH.

SOMEONE PRODUCE THIS DAMMIT.

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Mr. Orange




The mysterious big businessman that's behind many of the mishaps that go on in World City. No one knows his identity or his motives, but one thing is obvious: He does not make life easy for Zeus and co.

Flun Flacts!

- Contrary to popular belief, Mr. Orange is not insane. He is just eccentric.

- How does he see out of that helmet? I dunno.

- OH WOW HE IS TALL.

This is the last of the model sheets! I hope you enjoyed them! More Zeus Guy stuff coming soon, hopefully.

Mr. Mega



The Super-Ultra-Radical™ president/mayor of World City!

Phun Phakts!

- Mr. Mega's idol is Max Radical, the world-famous XTREME AXTION STUNTXMAN. Probably the worst possible idol for a president.

- Because of a loophole, Mr. Mega is president of World City as long as he wants to be.

- He has no idea where he is.

Commissioner



Sorry about the width of this, but because Commissioner is so asymmetric, I had to draw him from every possible angle. AND IF I HAD TO SUFFER, YOUR MONITORS WILL HAVE TO SUFFER.

Fun Fax!

- Commissioner HATES HATES HATES Zeus Guy! He insists that Zeus is a crappy cop, and gives him the worst assignments possible.
- He gave himself a robot arm so he can pound on his desk louder when yelling at Zeus!
- He loves his wife, Mrs. Commissioner, VERY MUCH.

Azureus Rising



Hell yes.

Captain Fall



Captain Fall is pretty pathetic. He was once the most popular kid in school, but a mishap with Zeus led him to lose all his friends and popularity. Now, he seeks revenge on Zeus, NO MATTER WHAT IT TAAAAKESSS.

Bun Facts!

- Captain Fall has tiny hands!
- Stickers make his "armor" look kewwwwl
- He's allergic to ninjas

More model sheets coming soon!

ALSO, WHY HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS. I NEED TO SEE THIS.

Pibbles Model Sheet



Pibbles is Zeus' biggest (and only) fan! He's a little ball of energy, and often gets Zeus into trouble with his antics.

Fun Facts!

- Pibbles has a medical condition called Elasticitis. It makes his body extremely rubbery, and makes him impervious to damage.

- Zeus will sometime use Pibbles in battle, either as a shield against projectiles, or as a..."live" round in his Popgun. Don't worry about Pibbles, though! He loves being a part of the battle, and isn't hurt by any of it.

- Yes, Pibbles is a boy.

Zeus Guy: Epic Detective

For those of you who don't read my deviantART journal, I have some big news:

I have started pre-production on a pilot episode for Zeus Guy: Epic Detective.

It will be an 11 minute spectacular, full of explosions and jokes and jokesplosions. I have several good friends helping me out with it. We will soon be finishing up recording the audio, and it's going grrrrreat! Once the voices are recorded, I will start punching out an animatic...with my fists. I have no idea how long production on the pilot will take, given its length. But, I wouldn't expect it TOO soon. I would like to have it done before the end of the year. But, we'll see!

I'm gonna start posting the model sheets I made, so you guys can get used to seeing those characters. I'll also post production stuff, but I'm also probably gonna set up a separate Zeus Guy blog, one that doesn't share space with all my video links and such. Once we go heavy into production, I will need lots of support from you guys! Both spiritual and financial. We take compliments, hi-fives and checks. I'll probably put up a donate button, and provide various incentives to donating moneys.

Here's the first model sheet. It's the star of the show, Zeus Guy!



Smaller shittier news:

I finished 8 pages of a Kill All Superheroes comic for Zuda. Of course, with my luck, they stopped doing competitions just as I was about to submit it. Soooo, yeah. I can't post it on here yet, on the off chance that they'll still want it. It's kind of limbo right now. But, I'm really proud of the comic, and you guys will see it sometime soon, I hope. Davis Donovan fans unite!

Stay awesome, folks!

Nintendo 3DS

This is blowing my mind right now.



In other news, my internship at Radical Axis will be drawing to a close soon. It's been fun, but I'm glad to be coming back home. You really don't know how comfy you are at home until you're in a strange city at a new job, with no friends in the area. It's been a little rough, but I made it out alive.

Sorry I haven't been posting more stuff! Nothing's really blown my mind lately, which is unfortunate. If you wanna see cool Flash animation, go to ColdHardFlash. They always post neat vids.

I finished a 9 page pitch bible for my series, Zeus Gai. I'm still debating whether or not I should post it...I probably will, but on deviantART. I might post some character art here, though. This blog needs some more actual artwork from me. :\

I've been contributing to the Radical Axis sketchblog since I've been here, so you can check that out: http://radicalaxis.blogspot.com
The drawings are all labeled, so just poke around until you see mine. All of the submissions are rad in my opinion.

Also, I will be attending C2E2 in Chicago, this April. If you're going, let me know! :)

Stay awesome!

Something about them hits me the right way. It just seems different than the usual bullshit. Also, here is a cool video about t-shirts:



I'm still in Atlanta, working for Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Squidbillies. It's pretty rad. I'll let you guys know when the episodes I worked on actually air.

Stay classy!

In other news, I'm busy at work at Radical Axis. I did a bit of work on Squidbillies, now I'm doing clean-up and animation on Aqua Teen Hunger Force! I'll let you guys know when the episode I worked on airs!

It's all very exciting stuff. The people here are nice, and the environment is great.

DEMO REEL IS LIVE!



I finally finished my demo reel! I decided to include an intro/outro for the whole thing, which I think I went a little overboard with. However, I think it looks good, and hopefully draws people in.

Tell me what you think of it!
