been dying to get exercise, been turning into a chunky monkey. It's just there's no time, wish there was a gym near my house or somehting.
Plus Halloween, calories calories calories!
Still alive and kicking...or rather dancing.
I'm getting faster. Much faster. I know understand part of adding texture and punctuating rhythm to my movies also means adding more variety to my life. Years ago when I was in better shape I made Haloid in just over 2 months. Dead Fantasy 2 was made in about 4 months. These days as I get older and gain more skill. Somehow I seem to be getting slower. And part of it is re igniting my passion for things.
My movies have always been very rhythmic. And exercising rhythm in my life adds haste to my process. In an odd way, much like dancing adding texture and beats to my work means being ok with going slower. By lea
The Other SideSo what the one other thing I do beside work?
Man I've been a dance gamer for over 10 years now. I try to play for style more than anything. I like finding songs that are hard enough to keep you moving, but easy enough that you can still look cool doing it.
This is the one other thing I do besides work work work. Really it's the only exercise I get maybe once a week. But lately with changes in my diet I've been able to get in really good shape. I happened to be there one night and a passerby decided to start recording. This was linked to me by my buddy Archie.
Funny tidbit, before I was ever known for making movies. I was "famous" in my hometown for dancing at arcades. My friends would even joke about the group of kids who liked to watch me back then as "monty's fanclub."
iawtv awards showYo folks. Here i am in las vegas getting ready for tonight. Red vs blue has been nominated for best animarion at the international acadamy of web television for best animation. And tonightthere will be a livestream & red carpet for the ceremonies. You can watch the live stream at 9pm eastern time here: http://www.youtube.com/iawtvorg
See you then!
OnwardSo we managed to crawl to the finish of Red Vs Blue Season 9. If you've got a few bucks to spare, it's not a bad buy. You may be able to use it to clone me someday considering how much blood and sweat I poured into it.
But in all seriousness though it is a true product of love. I don't think anyone loves working on this more than I do.
That being well and behind me I'm already getting started on Season 10. Which will be no small task as the 10th season of this show we have huge things in mind... huge.
On a more personal note I'm beginning making some leeway on Dead Fantasy and other projects of passion of mine.
And on a even more personal note, I'm feeling somewhat empty these days. It's getting harder and harder to remind myself how lucky I am, despite the sacrifices I've had to make to get this far. It's a privilege of many sorts to work on something th
Red Vs Blue Season 9 Episode 17Oddly even though I've been offsite for about a month now. I'm still working everyday. I don't think I know how to relax lol. But ah well, at least I'm somewhate more rested and ready to kick some more ass.
So this here is episode 17 of rvb season 9. This episode particularly has the longest uncut action sequence I've done to date.
I've always felt whenever movies do what's called a "long take" that the action itself kinda suffers due to the simple reason of being safe and laking the polish of editorial. Particulars come to mind like Hard Boiled or Tom Yum Goong.
So I was like why not? I have the advantage of editorial despite living in the realm of action choreography. It being animation, why not do a long take?
Red Vs Blue Season 9 Episode 15I need to be better about updating here. You are afterall artists and coleagues that I respect.
So anyhow, we've wrapped this season and I'm back home in the northeast breathing a bit spending time with the girlfriend, doing the preliminary research for next season. As well as getting assets ready for Dead Fantasy, and... other projects.
In the meantime here's the latest episode of Red Vs Blue Featuring my work:
It's a very exciting time with a world of possibility in front of us. Believe me whatever I didn't get to fit in this season is going to be twice as good next season.
Red Vs Blue Season 9 Episode 10.
So as always I'm ridiculously busy. So busy in fact I'm missing out on birthdays, anniversaries, childhood friend's wedding's, life period. Soon this will all be done with though and I will get a chance to breath and speak. Until then I literally cannot stop.

How to link deviants, deviations, or websites!I am using deviant arts own help topic found here http://help.deviantart.com/81/. I will be expanding upon what they have with examples, to make it easier to understand. Just so you know I am using their outline and explanation, if you would like to know which parts were mine and which are theirs just go to the site above
How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?
There are a few formats you can use, either a link of the users name, displaying the members avatar, or by linking with a personal description.
:iconusername: will display the member's or group's avatar as a link to their page. Remember, however, that the limit for posting blocks of avatars is sixty four per post, and this will not work in signatures.
This seems easy enough, here I will use my own name. :iconamarantheans: will give you :iconamarantheans:
DeviantART is changing....DeviantART was unique before because it allowed every artist to express they're own individuality. One of its selling points was the user interface which was differnt from other art sites and encouraged people to want to seek out other artists and view their content.
My opinion about the site's most recent update (Eclipse).
1) It's impersonal. The creativity and the sense of individuality have been abolished. Every single account is now exactly the same. The removal of custom boxes, the basic HTML and CSS codes as well as the ability to show multiple featured drawings at once is a total crime against the artists who want to advertise their work through their profiles.
2) The avatar icons and background pictures are too blurry.
3) There don't seem to be any cropping option during the selection of background images.
4) I am a BETA tester and I s

. What I want:
Commission ListFirst of all, the best way to commission me is via sending me a note. Just say what you want and keep it short at first, because in the end matters mostly how your character looks (so add the Ref Sheet too) and what kind of drawing you want, details can come later. Since who knows if I will even accept your Commission.
What I am willing to draw: Canines, the rest you better ask but mostly is the reason that I am not good in drawing other stuff, though asking never hurts.
I live in Europe, so it is EURO, so the prices here will stand in € and all happens via Paypal. If you want to pay in USD, you probably have to pay more.
It would be best if you send me the money, works the easiest for me with paypal. I always demand full payment before, I can assure you though that I am a fast worker and will send you wips if you wish it. BTW, make sure to select: no delivery address needed. Update: I prefer invoices now.
I really do
