I'm so happy right now.

This week has been so very very great for me. I finished my first animation, a basic walk cycle, but it actually WORKS! Man was I a happy bunny that day. My tutor is also gleeful about my work book and says I'm making good progress. No worries at all, which is always a good thing to know.

Mr Atom's update on the Underfist also got me hyped. I just hope it's going to air here on the 12th too, though I'm doubting it... Ah well, it'll end up on the Internet some time after I'm hoping. But the style really is lovely, especially the Fred Fred Burger revamp. So very adorable but keeps the same silly air that it always had. Argh you just want to hug the frozen yoghurt shoveling fool.

On Saturday I also got to see "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People". Simon Pegg you bloody genius! I couldn't stop laughing from start to finish, definitely one title to add on to the "must buy awesomeness" list. Still need to get a job to get the funding to make it more of a reality than a list though... Hmmm..... I also get to go see Mirrors next weekend with a couple of friends of mine, should be a great laugh! They'll probably be screaming their heads off hehe.

And last but not least, I have recently been told over at Frederator's blog about the Ape Escape! cartoon series. I've been looking forward to seeing that for a little over a year now. The shorts have been completed and sent off to Nicktoons so hopefully we'll be seeing them on TV soon. I really do hope so, the story board clips look so great! So much so that I've started drawing fanart already. Like I did LAST year when I first saw some of the starting story boards. Sad little me, teehee.

First up is a little take on one of the story boards. I found it too funny not to try and draw Specter's expressions! Not very creative of me though... Here's the storyboard clip I took it from:

Next up is a little fanart of my own devices. Not such a great take on the style though, Specter's side view is a hard thing to try and mimic... And don't get me STARTED on that bloody monkey. Urgh!

Next up is some fanart of the infamous Fonejacker. That's one funny comedy show, yup.

These just started out as a bunch of Lemurs but it really did give me an idea. Not that it hasn't been done already anyway. A family of animals. Yup. Original. I'll shut up now.

And now, a bunch of sketches of random Cartoon Network characters I love. Not all of them as I ran out of both time and space to do this.

And lastly, I'll shove some colour on here with this little doodle. Enjoy the crud!

I don't know how you draw panini so well! I've been trying for ages and mine look nowhere near as good as yours :)
