All newer stuff, I believe...
This is going to be a massive post, because I'm posting the backed drawings and also new ones. Enjoy.
Wow, I didn't realize that it's been nearly a year since I posted in this thread. Well, now there are a few more.
The first few are from the western episode I'm about to write, where the crew of The Dreadknot get stranded on the mining planet of Anqet, in a town called Boulder Run.
And the next two are just a couple assorted ones I never posted.
Damn you, Vlad -- I can't hand out any more rep anymore!
Awesome shit, really. I can draw, but not nearly this well.
Thanks, Bick. Though my best artwork is in the Non-Space Pirates Artwork Thread, Space Pirates has been my and my co-creator's brain child since high school. It's really grown from what would've been a sketchy comic strip to a full blown space drama/action/comedy. There are already three scripts finished, almost four, in industry standard format.
Haha, they keep ending up about an hour long, because I can't pack all the awesome in such a small time slot as thirty minutes. But everyone that's read them has loved them, and that includes those that read in on several script critiquing sites I've posted them on.
Eight full-color character poses for the Space Pirates concept.
Latest incarnation of the Space Pirates logo.
Fun little mural I did for Space Pirates, featuring the three creators. Myself on the right, Drifter_Red in the center, and alaskan_yetti on the left.
Well, the first real step toward success is in effect.
Heather Kenyon is currently the VP of Animation for the Starz Network. She is formerly the editor in chief of Animation World Network, and also formerly the senior director of development for animated series' at Cartoon Network. She has not only received the Space Pirates pitch bible, but has sent me a personal email informing me that she has saved the pitch bible to her desktop to insure it doesn't get lost in her mass emails, and said that she "can't wait to read it!"
I'm excited, your excited, we're all excited to see what this correspondence might lead to. At worst, I'll have some of the best advice available to me. At best, she loves it enough to option it to a network, or perhaps make it known to Starz.
We shall see.
The Captain pontificates the metaphysical parallels that may exist between a bottle of diner ketchup and the augmented auditory qualities of a rat's ass.
You do know that your idea was actualy mentioned in the 100th episode of ATHF, right? The [adult swim] guys threw a shoutout your way after your dealings with them.
Haha, yes I did. Shake tries to pitch "Space Pirates" to the television executive, who promptly slams the door on him.
Perhaps a clear indication of what they really thought?
Edit to add:
I love telling people that, " I [internet] know the guy who actually pitched that show to the guys at adult swim!"
It's been a bit buggy, but it should work. This is the first hand drawn animation of The Captain ever produced.
