Update/Gallery Page!!!


I finally have a gallery page up! I’m going to keep updating and refining it, but go ahead and check out some of my story work!



The Snake: The final character!

Here is the final character design for my short, still currently titled The Cactus & The Spout. I designed him to be a derpy baby rattle snake just trying to survive in the desert. I tried to make him adorable, but also a little scary.



Within the next couple weeks I will start posting the boards. Then the snakes teeth will make a lot more sense >:) Until then, let me know what you guys think of the character designs so far!


The Cactus: First character from my thesis film!

The Cactus is the first character from my thesis film currently titled “The Cactus & The Spout.”  I will reveal more about the story later, but essentially the film is a Chuck Jones inspired comedy, completely 2d animated. 

DYoakam_Animation4_CactusSingle2Knowing that the Cactus doesn’t have a completely traditional sense of construction, I had taken some time to develop a style sheet.


The production will take up the majority of the academic year, finishing up by the beginning of May 2014. Stay tuned! I have more characters to introduce, plus storyboards! I can’t wait to post more progress and to get everyone’s feedback!
