Just put together some clips of animations I did for The Fall Part 2: Unbound. It was rad working with John Warner at Over The Moon Games and the rest of the awesome dev team. Also, thanks Cam Jarvis for for a lot of great VFX and music!

Steve Buscemi

Posted in Ink/Copic on December 14, 2019 by toonface

Did a study of Steve Buscemi with some inks and copic markers. One of my favorite actors. He was awesome in Fargo…

“Two can play at that game, smart guy. We’ll just see how you like it. Total silence.”

Also, I never knew he used to be a fire fighter in downtown Manhattan in the 80s. “Once one of New York’s Bravest.” He left the service to become an actor. But after 911 he actually returned to his old job where he worked 12-hour shifts for several days alongside other firefighters, searching for survivors in the rubble of the World Trade Center.

Great guy.


Another couple of longer poses

This was inspired by a trip my wife and I recently made to Japan. We visited the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto where this image popped into my head. Very cool place. I mostly painted this as a fan of the imagery one sees in Japan.


Some more sketches..

I did up a fairly lengthy but hopefully entertaining video of our latest trip in Japan. We stopped by Kumamoto,  Fukuoka, Kyoto, Osaka (for a day) and Tokyo. I really wish I could have spent more days in all of those cities. We were seriously debating whether or not it was our favorite trip so far.

The music is by one really awesome band called Odorenai Nara Gesu Ni Natte Shimae Yo and another groovy bit of music from Ryo Fukui.

And there’s a huge chunk of footage from the TeamLab Borderless gallery that makes it look like I can create fairly interesting videos but pretty much anyone could by going there.

Please enjoy!
