Background design - advice?

2015-12-03 17:17:10 by jaxxy

So...I don't want to say too much about what this project is since I've just started and mostly experimenting with art stuff. I've got my hands full with some other things right now and I don't have a lot of time to work on it but I'm excited to share. Right now I'm trying to nail down a style I'm happy with and a process that works well for me. I could really use some advice/crit/tips!

I've been using Google Sketchup to lay out some basic shapes/lines and stuff for the walls/doors/perspective and then draw over it and add color. I think I'm liking the results. It's definitely a start. What do you guys think? These aren't finished but I wanted to get some good feedback or maybe someone knows a neat trick to help with colors or layouts.

The hallway seems naked but I'm not sure what to put on the walls yet. Bathroom maybe needs more color variants. Definitely going to mess with the lights and shadows some more. Also I'm aware everything looks way too clean right now. I'll add in some finer details when I'm happy with the overall look. The bathroom needs at least 1 piss stain, right? XD

Hi guys! Been a loooooooooong while. Too long. Here's some stuff you guys should totally check out...

My friend, Danny, managed to finish this toon of his in such a short amount of time. Throw him some support by watching and leaving a comment! He worked so hard and it looks so good!

Tomar and I voiced in this all-too-acturate Jaltoid animation about becoming E-Famous. I'm the bitch and Tomar is the dramatic asshole. I really love how they animated everything! The style is so smooth and clean and the point it makes is...well, it hits the nail on the head.

Something I uploaded. I made it in about 3 days before we left for Korea with very little sleep. A lot of people are complaining about the music or that the animation doesn't fit the music or they flat out hate the game and hate the animation because of it but...I really don't give a damn. I think it came out pretty swell. What do you guys think?

Thanks for givin this a read! Happy Halloween! ♥ ♥ ♥ Hope ya'all throw up and get to stay home tomorrow from all the delicious candy you'll be eatting. Candy-hangover.

Hi guys! Long time no see!
My buddy Jorge is looking for animators to do short animated loops for his site. If you are cool with drawing & animating boobies and peepees and peepees going into peepees, then this MIGHT be the job for YOU! To apply, send an e-mail over to:
v.taboo.licious@gmail.com
with examples of your work. :) Make sure it's your best!
If you're wondering where I am, I moved over to youtube - http://www.youtube.com/jaxamoto - and stream weekly on Wednesdays @ 11am PST on Twitch.tv - http://www.twitch.tv/jaxamoto

Also, I got married to Josh Tomar (tomamoto) just after Christmas. So now I'm Mrs. Tomar. nbd ;)

Happy new year!

New Toons 'n Stuff!

2012-05-23 14:57:07 by jaxxy

Hiya! Sorry I haven't been posting much lately.
It was a pleasure meeting you all at the newgrounds office for Pico Day (wow, so late saying that) and I know I didn't get the chance to meet everyone, but it was still awesome be'n around ya'all! :) Especially our little group that went to D&B - RicePirate, FrozenFire, and LefthandedSock - You guys are awesome and I miss you terribly. I had such a great time! It was sad when it was over but since then I've been busting my butt making lots of new things.
If you aren't already subscribed to Jaxamoto then you probably haven't seen the new animations I've been putting out. There's one about Diablo 3, Fez, Admincraft 2, and a loop of Hulk smashing Loki into the ground. Give it a look and tell me what you think! I've been trying to get faster at animating so I've just been working on short little things. Lil Hoots 2 is coming along and a few other bigger projects that will take me forever to complete. I've also been voice acting. x_x

I just met this sweet animator named Jae who made this slick Teenage Mutant Ninja (minus the ninja) Turtles cartoon! Give it a look if you haven't seen it yet. I have a feeling his channel will be big very soon, seeing as he finished that cartoon in only 11 days.

Ok, FIRST, WhiteDevil0404 is having a livestream while re-drawing my youtube background, sexily; http://www.livestream.com/devilsden?t=259945

SECOND. Tomamoto and I moved back to Burbank. We got a cosy little place together in a much nicer neighborhood. No animal hoarders, parking spot gangs, the smell of cat piss, or general suspicious activity here! I've been so busy moving stuff in and cleaning that I've barely had any time to go online.
ElCid, Rubberninja, Egoraptor, Tomamoto, Hansvanharken, and I put together this Mass Effect Collab. As usual, it was lots of fun. :> I got Admincraft 2 finished last weekend but haven't submitted yet. Got a couple shorts to animate about the new games FEZ and Skullgirls. Has anyone played 'em yet? I can't stop ogling over Skullgirl's hot bouncing titty animation. Tomar's been trolling a little with his announcer voice while playing online matches.
FEZ....that game just blows my mind but I've run into some really fucking AWFUL glitches that prevent me from finishing the game 100%. XC Still, I'm sure they'll fix those bugs as soon as they can and I highly recommend you get dat game.

THIRD. I can't fucking WAIT FOR PICO DAY. AHHHH!!! IT'S SO CLOSE!!! I got a bunch of stuff for the mystery box and I can't wait to see everyone there!

So I'm back home...spent a week in Florida and feel ready to jump back into animating.
What's up? Whose gunna be at Pico Day this year? :D I can't wait to see all'yas!
Just released a cartoon to NG's I whipped up last month. It's been on youtube for a while, but if you haven't see it yet, check out 50MG! It's my first piece that I've done solely by myself and while it didn't take me too long to make, it gave me some confidence that I am capable of making stuff on my own when I need to. For now I'm continuing with Admincraft and working on the second episode.

In other news, I got a new layout on mah youtubez that Whitedevil is redo'n and me, Ego, 'n Rubberninjerrr have been makin' some sweet ass cartoons on the weekends. If you've been watching Delocated on Adult Swim this month, then you've probably seen YCHANG IN THE CHINESE MAFIA!! He plays Qi-Qang (the guy Jon is talking to in the clip). I am so proud'a him. <333

Also, Mike Welsh is a genius and you can't even begin to understand his Majesty.

Be sure to watch Oney's cartoon about MACHITIMA! There are much better networks out there that will treat you with much more respect and won't shit all over your hard work. :3

Admincraft ~ A Minecraft Cartoon

Soooooooo it's been a while. A lot's been happening here.
Today I just released a new cartoon - yeah, you guessed it. It's about Minecraft. A sorta' true story about the Minecraft server we run and the fun people who play on it. I'm not much of a Minecraft player myself, but a lot of my friends are and I do enjoy checking out the amazing stuff they build on the server.
If you were at our panel at MineCon in November then you might remember seeing this but....HERE IT IS: Admincraft
And if you WEREN'T at our panel, then you totally missed out on me embarrassing myself...so thank you. Sure was a fun time in Vegas that weekend. That DeadMau5 concert was pretty awkward, wasn't it?

And thank you to everyone involved. Couldn't have done it without ya'all. If you play on the server you could be featured in the next episode!
Also, check out our little youtube channel run by Tomamoto and myself.

...And well that's it. :1 That's all I wanted to say.
kbye

BLACK DYNAMITE!

I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS SHOW. We saw the first episode at Comic Con during the Black Dynamite panel & sneak peak....BUT NOW YOU CAN SEE IT TOO! It just came out yesterday, so if you haven't seen it yet HERE YA GO!

Alright, so now that that's outta the way, Sergio 'n Bear 3 is in the works along with Lil' Hoots 2. Crazy. I've been doing some speed/practice drawings lately and shared a bit in the forums too. You can see my ridiculous request thread here and I'll probably do some more soon since it was pretty fun taking your requests (you sick bastards) but if you want something decent from me, I'm always available for commission. Just ask and I'll probably draw you just about anything for the right price.
My friend WhiteDevil is open for commission too and he is freakin' amazing. He's been a huge help to me over the past week and even drew me this savvy Sergio and Bear art below!

Oh yeah, before I forget again, Tomamoto and I are on Youtube now as Jaxamoto. I really owe a bunch of thanks to our friends for helping our channel pick up. Slowly we'll be uploading more videos every month - Hoots in September, No More Tricks in October, HM2 in November, and probably something new in December.
Now go play Symphonic. :3
