I took some time on the 4th to draw off-model versions of the team of warriors that I've been drawing on-model for the past couple months now: Chris, Danny, Beth, and Wallow. If you haven't heard already, Frederator Studios has a new cartoon series in production called Bravest Warriors. You can read all about it, here. It's based on the original short by Pen Ward (creator of Adventure Time).

I was brought on in April to help with character design, pre-storyboarding development, and key poses to aid in animation. Which means I've been doing a lot of drawing. Once in awhile the production blog posts images to the public—below are a few.
As the weeks go on, I'm sure they'll be sharing more of the work I've been doing. It's been a great experience; I get early scripts and I've been working directly with Breehn Burns (executive producer along with Fred Seibert) to develop new characters for each episode and work out any requirements for the main characters.
The series of shorts is due to air this fall on the YouTube Channel, Cartoon Hangover. You may have also read that like Adventure Time, a comic book series is arriving in October by Boom! Studios' KaBOOM! imprint (cover art previews and more info on that via Comics Alliance --> here.)
Finally, here's one of my favorite characters so far that came out of a collaborative effort with Breehn. A little dude named Impossibear (an early concept color sketch).
