More Cuphead Animation Cels I have been working on some custom animation cels as a hobby lately.
Cuphead has reinvigorated my passion for this classic style artwork.
Since my last blog I ordered some professional blank cels on EBAY.

I got 250 cels for an amazing deal. They came straight from Cartoon Color Company.

Another thing that I learned is they used gouache paint. This paint...

My custom animation cel artwork of Cuphead My first time seeing Cuphead, I was thinking why hasn't someone did this before.
Ever since playing Dragon's Lair back in the day, I always wanted to play a living cartoon. I can't wait to play Cuphead. 2016 can't come soon enough.
When I was in high school I did some cel animation for fun. Just single scenes from Disney movies and from Dragon's Lair....

Batman and Castlevania Pixel paintings.

I finally finished two more paintings. The first two of 2013. I worked on the Soma Cruz painting off and on for two months. It was more difficult than I thought. There were a lot of different greys and whites that you had to distinguish between each other. I loved/finished the GBA and DS Castlevania's, so when I came across this pi...

It will definitely be a while before I attempt another large piece like this. I still want to do that Morrigan (Darkstalkers) one, which will be 36" x 36".
I also want to do an hu...

inspired by squarepainter. http://squarepainter...ery/?offset=24#
My deviant art page.
