Hello fellow artists!
For those of you who are fans of hand-drawn animation, and/or of the steampunk genre, here's a special treat for you!
Some of Disney and DreamWork's veteran animators are joining forces to create a 2D cinema quality steampunk short film series called Hullabaloo, which follows the adventures of Veronica Daring (aka Hullabaloo) who journeys to find and rescue her inventor father, who has been kidnapped by those who wish to exploit his inventions for their own evil purposes.
While I haven't seen or heard anything about a set release date for the films (although it looks like it'll be sometime in 2015), several proof of concept clips and animations have been posted, which you can view in the links below. Looks epic!!
More information can also be found on their official website. And if you'd like to help support this project, they also have an Indiegogo campaign page where you can donate to the project, and get some nifty steampunk perks if you like!

In other news...
I recently signed up to take a comic book drawing class at an art center near where I live! Yay!
The bad news is I was supposed to take it this week, but I was notified yesterday it has been postponed until October 15. In my last journal entry I know I mentioned doing a short comic about a Portal/Last Airbender AU where a water bending Wheatley finds out he's also a bloodbender, but now I'm thinking that I'll put that on hold for a bit.
It's still gonna happen, but I think I'll wait and take this class before I do anything beyond concept sketches. I'm sorry to make you guys wait even longer, but I would like this to look really nice, and I think this class may help me with that (as I don't actually have a lot of experience in drawing comics). You've all been so patient with me so far, so please bear with me for a bit longer. You're all awesome!
In the meantime, other fan art for Portal is sure to come about, as well as for other things, and hopefully I'll find some more fun things to share with you all!
With that, I hope everyone has a great week, and I'll be posting stuff again soon.
