This is from a promo spot we did while working on the movie Space Jam a million years ago. I gotta say it was pretty cool to draw this stuff professionally.

Yow! Crush gots a blister!

Here's what Crush'll be nestled in when you take him out of his box.
We like this picture, 'cause as Todd says,
"That's what real toys come in."
Keep watching here to find out how to get your own real Crush.

High School Art...

Estelle Hallyday - original 17x20 in - colored pencil on water color paper
Kate Moss - 19x22 in - pencil on water color paper
Sorry for the crappy scans - had to put her back together like Frankenstein - so if she looks messed up that's why.

Made In China...

Here are the first shots of the wax before the vinyl mold is made. Our Neptoon Studios logo is present in the inset on his back - SWEETNESS.
Erick Scarecrow at ESC-TOY LTD. is the project manager and is kickin' some serious arse, making it all run super smooth.
We're hoping to bring the finished CRUSH VINYL to the NY comic-con in Feb...we'll see.

The Archives...

Over the years I've collected tons of printed model sheets (before the internet). They are a great resource for quick ref. for posing. Looking at this pose sheet of Ember I can see the Disney and Bluth influences.

This is Gideon, the same dude as in my previous post. He was one of the main characters in a feature I had written way back when. I've been thinking of trying it as a trilogy for TV. With a fresh take on the designs I think it could make a wicked action fantasy series.
My apologies for the antique art - I've been super busy lately. Better old art than no art.

Foam Heads Are Fun...

...aaaaand a little bit creepy.

Highly Recommended: If you're looking for a cheap way to better understand your drawings - grab a chunk of foam from your couch a dremel tool and go nuts.
Warning: after carving a human head do not store in your basement and forget about it only to open it eight years later. I like to call the guy above "heart attack in a box".

Fresh Out Da Box...

Crush prototype 1 looks sweeter that we could've imagine - pictures do it no justice. Crush 2 is in China being cloned as we speak and we should see some samples shortly.
