Shot some more...

This is the scene before Rose's attempt to gt drunk. After the first scene ends, there is about 15 seconds of black before the next scene. The scene with Rose walking through the "haunted house" takes place just after she was running down the alley and collapses.

...I will post footage tomorrow. However, if you have a love of old school horror films and/or Lance Henriksen then please give to this cause.

Another scene...

This scene needs a bit of an explanation. Rose has several nightmares and odd occurrences (she cuts her hand and the next day there is no wound or scar) so in a fit of depression she tries to get drunk on cheap vodka.  However, unbeknownst to Rose, her cells are deigned to regenerate instantly rendering her permanently sober...

Cerulean news...

Just met with Jonah Crismore at Cinema Center - the local theater that caters to independent films and the like - and Cerulean will be shown on a friday in August...official date to be announced soon.

things are really rolling along...

Tony G has been working on the Bashar creature and just sent me this little gem.

We shot some great interior work last saturday.

And for those of you who have seen the first scene of the movie, the drawing of the moon has been replaced by a nice bit of footage from Steve P.  With a little bit of help from premier it lines up with the footage we shot in the alley.

Opening scene

Here is a link to the first two minutes of Crimson Rosetta. A few shots are animatics, especially the last few.


Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Started shooting this evening.
Animatic for the opening scene of Crimson Rosetta - the movie.  I viewed this on an iMac at school,but it doesn't want to work on my iPad or iPhone.  I'm going into work Wednesday to fix the problem. The evening shoot went really well and my son Zack is shooting a "making of" documentary.  He shot some great footage.

Just finished book 8

I just put the finishing touches on book eight. Going to mess around with book nine, but what I'm really jazzed about is the last three in the series. It's one gigantic, epic battle. It will include all three styles I have relied on for the base of the series plus a return to the Copic markers and a few more new media...stand by for updates.

The art show...

Friday March 9th was the art show. It started off very slow but soon was packed from 6:30 til about 8:45. Thanks to all of you who came.

And if you didn't make it to the show, you missed out on a good time AND Kristi's gourmet cupcakes...

I was just looking through to see what other sci fi books I'm up against and it was sorta cool to seem CR on the page.

Copic Markers!!!

Decided to take a break from book four since I am almost done with it and book three is completed and ready to go to the printer. My mother-in-law has been asking me to try Copic Markers for about a year now, but I have been resistant. She bought me a boat load of them for Christmas and I am hooked. I jumped on ahead to book seven to draw out a few pages. Book seven is the origins of the character Serf and how she came to be a cyborg guardian for Crimson Rosetta. The story will be told from her Academy room mate Giana. Since the story is about a time when Serf was more innocent and less experienced, I thought that a more cleaner look might be a good way to tell the story.

Page one
Kyle, Serf and Giana on their first mission out of the Academy.

With Serf as the leader, they were to put a stop to the growing number of Tellaxs gathering at the base of the Prayer Cliffs...the mission was to be an easy one...

The three new 'warriors' underestimated the combined strength of the Tellax...

Here is a close up of Giana so that you can see the marker lines and pencils and stuff...

A little rip

For page 15 I really wanted to go weird with the alien bad guy approaching Crimson like an old school rascal/evil guy/Clark Gable. So I went to the classics!

While waiting for Book One to come back from the printer, KA-BLAM, I finished Book Two, as stated below, and started Book Three. Book One was black and white ink with acrylic while Book Two was all watercolor. Book Three will be all graphite blended with paint thinner and some minor touches of red oil pastel.

Page Three...the bringer of Light and Death
