Star Wars Uncut: Empire Strikes Back

Howdy folks!  I hope everyone's Holidays are gearing up to be great.  I'll be spending mine here in Texas, with warm weather and dirt, but the family always makes it seem like a perfect Holiday Movie.

Anyway, I had been attempting to clear out some projects so I would have time to do this, and thankfully the boat didn't sail.

So, officially, I have picked up a scene for the latest iteration of 'Star Wars Uncut'.  This doesn't mean I actually get to have my scene in the feature, but I'm just happy I have the time to throw down for the spot.  The scene I chose is the part where Luke slashes open a hatch on an AT-AT and then throws a thermal detonator or something in it to make it go boom.

I will be attempting to keep a pretty detailed account of how I go about doing this scene, from character designs, to set pieces, and story boards to animation.  So you folks will finally get to see some of the crap I do...  Yay!

So, day one... morning one...  whatever, I scraped up some time between animations for the upcoming Jack Reacher review on and sketched out my version of Luke, for the animation.  More is coming soon!

Thank you dummy

So, a buddy of mine and all around incredible artist, Matt Frank(of Monster drawing fame), posted a meme lampooning a photo of a Stegosaurus with a sign denoting that Stegosaurs are only 5,000 years old.  Hilarity ensued as one of his facebook friends pointed out the possibility of...  Wait for it... Egyptians riding Stegosaurs!!

F@#$IN' A', Egyptians Riding Stegosaurs!!!!!!

And now this happened...
