Gifs for Friends pt. 3

To finish up with the co-workers, we have Supergirl, who is for the woman who gave me back issue of a comic when I left the company, and a coffee drinking owl for another who I saw wear some owl earrings once.

Really simple animations. But I think they’ll like ’em.

Gifs For Friends pt. 2

 

Just a few more gifs for that last job I held. One guy likes squirrels and puzzles and another guy likes comic books. I never asked his favorite character, but Amazing Spider-Man 2 came out this weekend, so Spidey it is.

Tabi Tha Tigress

This is the obligatory cat themed femme fatale great heroes must fall in love with. She’s a R&B singer/rapper. Her mother is her manager and is an ends justify the means type. She’s Tabi Tha Tigress. She’s made an appearance before.

Chibi Beeboy

chibi-beeboy

I’ve been trying to simplify the characters of the Beeboy universe for animation purposes. This Gif gig really has me inspired so, now there are these chibi/kawaii Beeboy characters. Things like this just happen. I mean they take a while to happen, but they pop into my mind and I have to share.

Sound Off All-Stars

Getting the Beeboy project running. Making more progress than I ever have. Now there’s a brief introductory “posse cut” with the Stunning Beeboy’s main rap antagonists. Mogadishu, Thug-O-Nomics and King Midas.

Sound Off Records is kind of like the Def Jam of the Beeboy universe. My friend @gee2tha wanted to name the label Blind Jelly, for a more direct correlation, but I think Sound Off works on many levels, it works as a military chant, it alludes to that idea that something is a little wrong, or off with how the label is so successful and finally the beats knock so hard it’s blow speakers and overload your mixers, turning your sound off.

Here’s a temporary logo for Sound Off Records, to be cleaned up later.

And here’s the Posse Cut.

I went the usual suspects type record cover, because it was the obvious thing to do, a police line up with gangsta-ish rappers. It also doubles as a scale for the character models.

Mogadishu, Mic Check – You ain’t running for your life yet?
Your pants wet and I ain’t pull out my knife yet

Sound Off – 1, 2

Thug-O-Nomics, Mic Check – Not a minor life threat
5-0 on deck and I ain’t even pull a heist yet

 Sound Off – 1, 2

King Midas mic check – Just got of my private jet
Wanna see me, better get your eyes checked

But I CAINT!!

 

My mind was being fried by the cute animal gif gig I’ve been doing, so I went to cracked.com in the forums and looked in the Artist Work Order Thread. Someone requested this:

Hey folks! Mind if I ask for a two-panel thing?
Imagine a dumb middle-aged guy, looks a bit like Woody Harrelson with a crew cut. In the first panel he’s all listless, you know, just kind of out of it, and he’s saying “I want one too…” But then in the second panel he bursts into anger, and he’s shaking his fists and quivering with his eyes bulging out and everything. He’s shouting, “BUT I CAIN’T!!”
I’d really appreciate it if somebody could draw that for me. Thanks in advance!

I thought it would be a fun exercise, so I whipped this up in about half an hour or so.

I hope the guy can use it. It was fun.

King Midas – Crowned Victorious

King Midas from the Stunning Beeboy Universe has little in common with the figure from legend, beyond his affinity for gold. My King Midas goes a step further, he has the platinum touch. He’s a braggadociuos rapper that is enraptured by all things that glitter and build status. Not very violent or street, but has street cred and built his reputation as a battle rapper. I’ve had a few looks for him, but I’m trying more of a cartoon style, like easy to animate with detail.  Here’s a rough character model from blue line to full color.

I made his song, Crowned Victorious by looking into the catalogs of his real life rap analogs, Kanye West and MF Doom. Along the way I stumbled accidentally on the bass line to The Boogie Down Productions classic, “The Bridge is Over,”  while hitting keys on the “piano” Threw that in the mix and sang some weird hums before landing on a heavily tuned refrain of Crowned Victorious. I thing it comes together well enough, I freestyled for eight bars keeping on the topic of what King Midas represents. I thing the record cover below would work for this fictitious artist.

Here’s the track.
