As I'm sure most of you who subscribe to both the newsletter and hit up the site (or RSS feed) know, the newsletter is missing this week. Well, it's not because I haven't sent it. In fact, I sent it twice. I'm not quite sure what's up but the newsletter hasn't made it out to folks in-boxes yet. A rule of thumb - always subscribe to you're own newsletter. It let's you know when things go wonky.
I'm going to look into this and figure out what happened. It could just be a glitch and fix itself. If that's the case, you may end up getting two copies of the same newsletter this week. I'll keep you posted as to any new developments.

Nothing professional, mind you. Just a couple of animation classes in college. The one thing that I remembered from those classes is the old technique of stretching and squashing. I'd like to get back to that kind of exaggeration and animated movement in my characters again. Not only did it make for some interesting drawing sessions but it also conveyed emotions a lot easier than the model I've been using.
Since I did say that I would talk a little about the SYBaW book in the last post, here is what I was thinking: The book is cute, small and funny but it isn't complete. I had to cut stuff out to fit the page size for the project. It came out pretty good (Though I have found some 3am mistakes in it) but what I would really love to do is to make a complete one. Maybe even bring that same style I used in SYBaW and apply it to other monsters like vampires and zombies. That's pretty much the thoughts I have on it.
Any suggestions you have, toss them my way. You can drop them to biff [at] propheka.com. = )
New story coming on Sunday. 'Till then, stay safe!
