At the E3 video gaming conference today, Microsoft showed off a new game "Cuphead", which pays homage to classic 1930s animation.

The game looks beautiful, and I'm really impressed with the filters and effects put over the animation (things like hairs, color separation, blur, etc.). It looks really fun, especially for animation fans. :)

There are several other hand-drawn video games, but this one looks the most authentic and true to actual cartoons.

I haven't seen a music video this fun and creative in a while. It feels like I just watched a really good indie film.

This is absolutely incredible. I have no idea how this was done, but somehow they mixed 2D animation with CG animation, and it looks amazing. It looks like the concept art is alive on-screen. 

You have to see this, I'm going to gush about this for weeks.

Cartoon Brew ran an exclusive interview abou the teaser with Sergion Pablos. He's keeping the exact details of the process hush hush, but it's still great.

I just discovered a bunch of old songs that I recorded hidden deep within the forgotten corners of my computer files. I totally forgot that I recorded most of these, so it's a really fun surprise to find that I made a bunch of stuff. I don't know why I neve...

Happy Mother's Day!

I know I've probably posted this pencil test before, but I'm obsessed with it, and I thought it seemed appropriate for Mother's Day. :)

I love that Keane was able to instill so much heart into the acting of the scene. It can tell that he knows from experience what it means to adore your child and tuck them in at night.
I'm also really impressed with the staging. All the poses are always clear and open to the audience, even as the characters are very close together in a complex movement. Keane really knows how to make the action read really well.

This scene is near perfection in my opinion. And it reminds me of why we should be thankful for mothers. :)

I just watched Pixar's Inside Out last night, and I'm SO impressed with it. No joke, it's honestly one of the best films Pixar has ever made. Maybe not THE best, but it's definitely up there.

I found a b-roll on YouTube. It's fragmented, which is frustrating, but it's still cool to see the process of making this wonderful film.

Have you seen Inside Out yet? What did you think of it?

Disney has finally released a teaser for their upcoming film, Zootopia !

It looks adorable, and strongly reminds me of Robin Hood with its anthropomorphic fox lead. I love how the animal characters exhibit both human and animal traits in their animation, like when the rabbit (Hopps) is searching for the fox (Nick) and her nose quivers as she sniffs.

Hi, everybody!

I found this wonderful little film called "Happy Unhappy". I really like how believable and expressive the characters are even with a unique and simplistic art style like this. I was really able to connect with the story.

Enjoy!

Hello, everyone!

I recently found this amazing documentary about Chuck Jones (the man most known for his Looney Tunes shorts and How the Grinch Stole Christmas )

It really does a good job at showing what made his work so special, and it features amazing interviews from people like Glen Keane, Eric Goldberg, John Lasseter, and Steven Spielberg.

Enjoy!
