Some "Crash Nebula" leftovers

Here's some stuff I found in my "Crash Nebula" folder. ("Crash" was a pilot created by Butch Hartman and Steve Marmel. It didn't get picked up as a series but still airs as a "Fairly Odd Parents" episode.) These are some miscellaneous alien school kids. I always wanted to limit the alien races to just a few and then vary the shapes and sex of each race. I thought it would be a little easier to look at and create a more believable universe, (like Star Trek) but was outvoted by everyone I think.

This next page is of the headmistress of the school, named "Galaxandra". Butch and Steve wanted her to look like those tall white cloning aliens in Star Wars Episode2, (the worst of all 6 movies in my opinion.) I tried to add a butterfly approach to help distinguish her a little. There's a construction sheet as well. I don't know how much good info is on it, but I do like the fact that her fingers are longer than her palm. I'm going to try and remember to keep doing that.

Here's an attempt to have the overseas studio use a specific clean up line for the animation. Yeah Right! Wow was I naive! Of course all the lines had a normal even weight. And in hindsight who could blame them. It was pretty ridiculous to expect them to draw such time consuming lines on a TV schedule. Actually I'm not even sure these got sent, as the production staff was probably laughing at me for overkill! Ha! Ha! Anyhow, it's fun to look back on and remember how enthusiastic the small crew we had was on that pilot. May all focus test groups die!

Some "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" Designs

Here's a hodge podge of designs from the episode, "Cheese A GoGo" which is now showing on Cartoon Network. I didn't get to design any new friends for this episode, mostly just humans and special poses.

Dilophosaurus makes a beautiful, yet deadly addition to my blog. :)
