Time for TFcon!

It has been a long time!

I was super busy this month working on the prelude comic for the TFcon 2011 script reading. 8 pages of full color artwork! Really worked hard to get it all done in time, and now it’s out there for everyone to read. Check it out!

Here is the final page, without text. I will have a limited number of prints of this image for sale at the show.

TFcon 2011: Primal Perception by ~ninjatron on deviantART

Voice actors Paul Eiding (Perceptor) and Garry Chalk (Optimus Primal) will be there for the show, and will be performing the comic as well as what happens next in the story. The other characters will be played by people from the audience.

Hope you dig the comic. I really ran myself into the ground on this one. Even still, there is so much more that could have been done with it.

Looking forward to the show! It’s going to be awesome!

Summer Smackdown

Hey, so today was Canada Day. Canada is pretty awesome. Except when we’re having stupid pointless Hockey riots. Which is all the time. So… yeah.

I’m finished with teaching for a little while. The last term had its ups and downs. The digital illustration class went well enough for the first time with the group of teenaged students, but the younger group just didn’t really get it. Too much to remember, too much information to take in all at once. It was tough! So, some tweaking will be necessary for next time. Will likely start teaching some summer classes shortly.

Right now, I am busy working on the annual prelude comic for TFcon. Really looking forward to another year of this fantastic convention, and I think people are really going to like the comic this year. There is a lot of work to do, but I’ve got most of the month left to do it, and I’m planning on knocking it out of the park.

X-Men First Class was a really good movie. I was quite impressed at how good it really was. The buzz going into it was not very enthusiastic coming from the usual batch of angry nerds, but the final product just goes to show how little those people really know.

Will be seeing Transformers: Dark of the Moon soon. I somehow wound up already buying a lot of the toys. Hopefully I’ll like the movie enough to justify all the other merchandise I’ll probably buy!

I forgot to mention last time that I put some new artwork up on my deviantART page. So you should totally check that out, yo.
