Finally -- a breather!

Sorry about the long delay since my last post, but I've been busy and it's taken me a wee bit to get my equalibrium.

Besides the usual chaos of the holidays, I've also started a new gig and it's different in many respects then what I've done in the past. I'm helping to storyboard for a live-action feature...Terminator 4. I think the official name is Terminator Salvation. It's taken me a little time to get my legs under me, but the further I go along the more I realize it's not too different then storyboarding for an animated feature in many respects. What's mostly different are the people (all of them seem great) and the process is somewhat different.

Anyway we're off for this coming week, so I'm hoping to get a jump on a couple of freelance gigs and several commissions as well.

I also appreciate all your well wishes concerning the 'secret' project that I'm pitching. Hopefully after the new year that will start to move forward again. During December very little starts to happen in this business and the town starts to shut down until after the first. Some of you claim to have an idea what it is...I'm curious if you do and how you figured it out. You can just e-mail me to help preserve the secret...


Here's a rough for one of the commissions I've been working on...


It's amazing how popular those Evo girls still are.

Cool commish !

No clue as to your secret project, but I'll be waiting for your updates when it's no longer secret.

Congrats on the storyboarding gig for the terminator Live action.

Very sweet looking Commission Steven! And congrats on the T4 gig! I'm sure there's a lot those cats you work with are wanting to learn from you as well as watch you work on storyboards lol.

Merry Christmas bro and looking forward to 'katranna' too!

Have a great time today and tomorrow with your family man and altho a bit early... Happy New Year!
Later
Jon

Congrats on the T4 gig. It would b interesting to hear how storyboarding for animation differs from live action.

You know what's interesting? The fact that you didn't go with the "classic" Scarlet Witch design that us comic nerds are use to, but still kept her color scheme. What lead to that decision?

ya I would love to see Rogue and Jean new designs...Gosh I miss the series...Wonder why X-evo has such an obsessive fan-base...

Well my heart almost jumped out of my chest when I saw that. Wanda is my favourite- by oh so much. Someday I'll order a commission or fifty from you, but I get the feeling that once I start, I won't be able to stop.

I don't think it's surprising at all, that they're so popular. You created some hella sweet looking characters, there. Combine that with a few new takes on their character traits and presto- instant fan base.

Happy Holidays Steve, and congrats on the gig.
I don't think you will ever escape Evolution, not as long as you keep drawing the characters that well.

Everytime I look at that Wanda I have to remind myself that I'm younge, untrained, inexperianced, and whatnot, and that you have years or experiance under your belt. Try as I might, it doesn't stop me from being incredibly jealouse of your talent and amazing skills! I can't wait for the next amazing sketch and/or for an update on your "secret project"!

Brilliant artwork!

And I don't think the problem with the new 'the Mask-series' was the art.. :)

Thanks for sharing your work and insight, I really like this blog! Please keep posting!
