Five Nights at Freddy’s 2

Cartoons // Digital Painting // Studio

Here are the next two animatronics in my “Cute” Five Nights at Freddy’s pieces. Five Nights at Freddy’s is a video game series that’s a point and click horror game where you play a security guard at a haunted, rundown Chuck E Cheese-esque kid’s pizzeria.

chica

Here we have Bonnie and Chica. Bonnie is a bunny that likes to creep up on you in hallways and air vents along with his partner-in-crime Chica the bird. They both love scaring you when you just after you think you’re safe!

Five Nights at Freddy’s

Cartoons // Digital Painting // Studio

foxy

So I’m totally into the video games series Five Nights at Freddy’s. It’s a point and click horror game where you play a security guard at a haunted, rundown Chuck E Cheese-esque kid’s pizzeria. I have watched endless playthroughs, theory videos, articles, etc. I even played Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 on the Date Knights’ Stream! I got through Night 3 like it was a breeze (it happens when you watch Markiplier play it for like 20 hours– I memorized ALL the strategy!) Anyway, after the recent release of Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, I got excited to do my own cutesy versions of the haunted animatronics that attempt to kill you throughout the games.

mangle

These are are Foxy and Mangle, respectively. Foxy is a pirate fox animatronic that attacks the player by sprinting at them suddenly from his hiding place in “Pirate Cove.” Mangle is a redesigned, “cuter” version of Foxy that was used as a “take apart and put back together” attraction in the Pizzeria. She’s all in pieces and has too many limbs and endoskeleton heads.

I’ll be doing some more animatronics in the near future– keep your animatronic endoskeleton eyeballs peeled for them!

Battle Cattle

Digital Painting // News // Products

battlecattle_frontcover_painting

Recently I began working on a very exciting and hilarious product that really… MOO-ved me. Battle Cattle™ is a miniatures game that originally released in 1996, and Phalanx Consortium, a tabletop gaming company, is going to handle the newest edition/reboot of the old cult classic.

battlecattle_frontcover_sketch

When Phalanx approached me for the project I could hardly believe my ears. “Cows? With guns? Say no more, I am IN!” Included here is a sketch and color comp of the illustration itself.

Here is the press release for the product:

Feb 12, 2015: BATTLE CATTLE ™ – Reborn!

Some of you may remember the original versions of Battle Cattle™, which was first printed back in 1996, and others may be seeing this game title for the first time. The Phalanx Consortium is pleased to announce that we are the licensed production house for the rebirth of this cult gaming classic. We have begun work on producing an updated and expanded version of the rules which will be set in a timeline that sees our brave bovine warriors answering the patriotic call of their respective countries in a great global struggle of nations. Their fights will move beyond the simple pastures to battlefields that stretch from one corner of the globe to the other.

As a part of this re-envisioning our talented artists are designing a line of whimsical miniatures so you can fight these epic struggles, in all their three dimensional glory, on your table top. Coming in the next few weeks we will start showing off some of the renders and prototypes of these battle hardened soldiers, so you can begin imagining the clashes to come. Stay tuned for these and other updates as we work toward the launch of an Indiegogo campaign set to begin mid to late spring of this year.

“THE COWS ARE BACK AND THEY’RE STILL PACKING!”

End of the Year Wrap-Up

Cartoons // Digital Painting

So… I know Christmas and New Years was a good month ago, but better late than never, I say! I had one heckuva set of Happy Holidays, and have been on the road since mid December. My nomadic tendencies aside, I’ve been working on quite a few projects that unfortunately I can’t show yet. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing anything though!

xmas_2014_final_WM

Now that the holidays have passed I can show the fun corporate holiday card that I did for Kung Fu Monkey Productions here in Burbank, California. They’re a fun bunch, and really let me have fun and do whatever I wanted with the material!

Then I was off to Georgia for Christmas, and Oregon for New Years where I received this truly amazing Christmas Sweater from my friends. They hand sewed all those little appliqué animals on there! They also don’t really know how to sew. Blood was shed and friendships strained in the making of this sweater, but I love it and have been wearing it with glee.

That’s all for now!

FoxDeploy Celebration Banner

Studio

Recently I completed another client job for the website FoxDeploy.com, a great blog about Powershell and other super high-tech programming things that I know absolutely nothing about. I know just enough coding to keep a website running, and that’s about it. The blog was celebrating its 100th post, and wanted a great banner image to go with it! And with a name like FoxDeploy, of course there were going to be foxes.

webfinal_whole

“Give me all the foxes” the client says to me cheerfully.

webfinal_right

“Lots of foxes, in fox-shaped hot air balloons!”

webfinal_middle

“Can I add confetti?” I ask, always wanting to shoehorn rainbows and glitter into my work.

webfinal_left

“Foxes! And Balloons! And Confetti! YES!”

So congratulations to my client (and friend!) Stephen Owen of FoxDeploy.com, and here’s to another 10,000 posts on your blog!

Jaw Punchingly Awesome – Youtube, Twitch, and Blogs!

ComboDropper's YouTube Banner!
ComboDropper’s YouTube Banner!

I’ve started doing artwork for a new crowd: the internet itself ! Creating content such as streaming video games, creating videos, and writing blogs has been fun a hobby and source of income for a lot of folks. Of course if you have a channel, blog, Twitter, or whathaveyou, you’ve GOT to have branding– and what better branding than a cartoon of yourself?

DateKnights' cartoonselves
DateKnight’s cartoonselves

These two gamer clients were ComboDropper from Youtube, and DateKnights of Twitch. ComboDropper posts videos almost every day, and DateKnights streams their gaming at least three times a week. Check them both out, because both of them are extremely entertaining and make good quality stuff. Plus I mean, Combo punches werewolves and the DateKnights have a “unicorn cam” and a cosplaying Abe Lincoln.

This blog is called Diary of An Aspiring Loser, and is about one woman’s fantastic weightloss journey. She’s been blogging since 2007, and has achieved some absolutely amazing goals.

If you’re a Youtuber, a blogger, or create any other sort of content for the internet and you’d like a cartoon of yourself or logo for branding, contact me! It’s a pretty fun process, I think!
