Genghis Khan 1

HELLO EVERYONE!!! Welcome to my first official blog post... I have a lot of crap that I plan to be posting up here. Stuff ranging from my various cartoon ideas, to life and animal drawings, to attempts at trying all sorts of new drawing techniques and things. I'm trying to improve upon my drawing skills and to harness my "craft" as a cartoonist so if any of you out there consider your self to be cartoonists, artists, or the anything of the like your constructive criticism on the things I will be post will be MOST appreciated! Thanks! ;)




This is a Character I came up with about a year ago...He's obviously a caricature of a infamous historic figure we all know, but it's the personality and persona of the figure that I found so appealing! He's the star of a short film I wrote about a year or so ago and have yet to start production on. One of these days I'll get off my butt and find the time to start animating it. In the mean time though I thought it would be fun to share some of these cartoon ideas I had with you!
These are some Facial expressions I was playing around with for him back when I first designed him...I need to loosen up a bit with the next batch I do for him and get a whole lot crazier with a wider range of emotions.
Here's an ortho I drew for a friend of mine to use as modeling reference...I always intended on doing this film in 2d from the start, but I was a little curious as to what he would look like in the 3d demention, so what the hell!
My good friend Joel Colon modeled this for me in Maya and Z-brush...It came out pretty good for his first pass at it, don't you think?

GHENGIS KHAN! You are my hero! Show me the power! No really, nice depth for 2D work. Great personality with this character. I hope to see more with this character and others.

LOL! Your work is still funny, dude. You know how to really push everything. I've been trying to get more subtle with my toons and this just makes me want to do a complete 180 and just go completely nuts. It's great to see you still drawing...I get worried that all my 2d homies from AI will turn to the dark side and abandon drawing. I'll add your blog to my links...and keep coming back. This stuff is really good.

You should get on that Genghis short...it looks like it can be REALLY funny. It looks cool in 3D, but with your style of drawing and animation I think it would be difficult to push a 3D model to match your drawings....just my thoughts.

Great stuff!

Wow cool man, thanks for the complements! Yeah I don't see how it's possible to even do this thing in 3d, not with what I've got planned for it in my head at least...but I'm always willing to play-around and experiment. I've actually fallen victom to the dark side believe it or not, but I'm hoeping this blog pulls me out of the 3d relm and back into what I love to do the most...DRAW!
