Jason and the Argonauts

I came across a still fromĀ Jason and the Argonauts, which is a movie that had a profound influence on my formative years. I’d recommend seeing it for the Ray Harryhausen animation alone. So here’s my process.

I started with pencils.

Then I moved onto line work.

Then I added some spot blacks

And followed by some ink wash.

And finally I added a color layer and adjusted the levels in Photoshop.

BoardSock Empire

In my last semester of grad school, I learned how to make GIFs! The timing on this is perfect because I am working on a series of short, sock-puppet-themed movies called BoardSockEmpire. As cross promotion, I am creating these GIFs. Eventually, I will incorporate these into a scrolling cityscape, not unlike XZCD’s infinite scroll comic, though significantly smaller. In the meantime, I share with you now these GIFs.
