Mighty B! Color BGs



It's that time again - time to look for another job! So I've been putting my feelers out to all different studios and there's nothing really going on. So I thought it wise to keep adding to my portfolio (newer pieces versus college pieces.) Here's a couple things I painted for the "Mighty B!" Test.

I got reacquainted with Photoshop and techniques, and had to create at least two washes and two brushes to accompany these. So much fun! I can't wait to paint more!

(I will be picking up a timing test soon. Hopefully I get to at least do some freelance!)

Freelance - BeatKinz

Aside from timing, I still enjoy working on storybooks for different shows. Most of the shows that require storybooks are preschool shows, so this is another Nick Jr. show called the "Beatkinz." Though it is a live-action show, we still need to test the show, and I'm sure having an artist build the book is more economical to the production and more appealing to kids than hiring a bunch of actors to pose out each shot.

Here are a few panels I've done. So far, I've finished 4 books for them, the first with the help of Oliver Akuin. Thank you, pal!
