I just found out my old figure drawing teacher, Glenn Vilppu, is now teaching online. I encourage anyone who would like to learn from the master... Michelangelo himself... to take the opportunity. 

He is a rare gem that was the Walt Disney

 Pictures Animation Feature training program drawing instructor from 1978 - 1984, 1993-2001; and lead the Warner Bros. Feature Animation drawing seminars from 1995- 2001.

If you want to learn how to draw better, this is the man that can transform you. http://vilppuacademy.com/home/about-academy/

HedgeShark

Another entry to Drawaholics.  Hedgehog + Shark combination.

Hammer Hedge Shark

Latest challenge on Drawaholics.  Hedgehog + Shark.  It had to be a fast one for me this week!

My computer was crashing today so while waiting I whipped up another Flamingo-Squirrel concoction for Drawaholics.  Very therapeutic.
Posted another piece for the Drawaholics Flamingo + Squirrel theme.

Age of Empires Online: Celtic Civ Animations



This is the Celtic Metal Smith Quest Giver idling fidgets.  He confidently tosses his hammer into the air and catches it, but occasionally he miscalculates.

This is the Celtic Gyptis Quest Giver Idling Fidgets.  I wanted her to be cute, happy and regal, even for a Celt.  

Age of Empires Online: Celtic Civ Animations



The Celts Civilization is available for Age of Empires Online, so I will be posting some of the animation work I did for them.  This is the Gaesatae, a Celtic ranged attacker.  I did the animation only.

The Celts are now available on Age of Empires Online!




The Celtic Civilization for Age of Empire Online is now available on Steam and Windows Live.  I did a fair amount of animation work on this civ, including the Auger, the Gaesatae attacks, the Gyptis and the Metal Smith to name a few.

This weeks post for the Drawaholics challenge:  Saint Patrick's Day.


I am contributing to a drawing blog called "Drawaholics" now.  It is fun and challenging!  Here was my first entry to the assignment:  What do Disney characters do in their off time or in retirement?  Click on the Drawaholics icon in the upper right of my blog to see everyone's results.
