3D Six Monsters… What’s that extra “d” all about?
So our section of "Six Monsters" is finally finished, and if you haven't yet noticed, it's all 3D. It was a long hard slog, but it's done. I had made a post a while back that showed how a shot is broken down into it's various elements for compositing, and ...



John Zacherle Middle School, Final
This is Chris Hacker's color version of Jim Worthy's design based on an old seminary in Kalamazoo. You'll see this for three seconds at the beginning of the cartoon, then again for about two seconds halfway through.-- Eric



For Whom The Bell Tolls
For the Six Monsters, that's who. Last week Fred, Alan, and Eric asked me to do the inter-scene transitions for the cartoon. School bells ringing throughout all the creepy corners of John Zacherley Middle School will wisk us from one strange scene to the next. I had only 72 hours ...

John Zacherle Middle School
We asked background artist Jim Worthy to come up with a look for John Zacherle Middle School, the locale for “6 Monsters”. You’ll see this art, completed, for about three seconds at the beginning of the cartoon to establish the scene. For reference, Jim worked off this 100-year-old image Kalamazoo’s ...



Math Test
So we recently got a short test of our segment in 6 MONSTERS and “gulp” never posted it. In fact, the whole segment has been completed by YESON. The same studio that did BRONK and BONGO and they did a stunning job translating my poor chicken scratches into a coherent ...



More Six Monsters Animation
With the recent post of some Fanboy animation, I thought we'd better put up some more of our stuff as well. HERE is another final shot from our piece. We stressed for quite a while as to how to handle the effect of Gailard's hand phasing into the water fountain. We ...



Gailard Speaks
HERE is a peek at Gailard from our section of Six Monsters.He was textured, lit, and comped by Keith McMenamy. As always, let us know what you think.-Floyd Bishop
