Another great background image by Brennan Hornburg. Just need to add the Squid’s Boxing Gym logo to the billboard and animate the crowd forming. Piece o’ cake.

This is the image I used to create the limited edition fine art print for the signed and numbered art print reward on kickstarter. The finished product was very satisfying.

Movie production is moving right along! I’ve finally starting animating a scene with Twomey’s trainer, Al. For me, Al is one of the most important characters to the story. I want him to be just right, so I’ve put him through quite a few rounds of re-design. I always knew that his character design wouldn’t be 100% until his first shot in the film was underway— and now it is.  
I’m including a lineup here of Al designs, chronologically from left to right. I drew the one on the far left about three years ago. Then I started revising him about six months ago, producing the next several images. I was almost settled on number 6 (second from the right), until I started his first scene. Then I went back and redrew him as a very close revision of that 3-year-old original design. I’m very happy with the outcome. And a huge ‘thank you’ goes out to David Blackwell who gave Al his voice. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0085893/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

Hello Tumblrs and Kickstarters! Merry Christmas and/or whatever else you might be celebrating. It’s been too long since I’ve sent out a note letting you know how the Boxer movie is going— so here you go! Mostly all Kickstarter rewards have been delivered, with the obvious exception of finished movie DVDs. The only other reward that has not been totally completed and sent out is the ‘Art Of’ digital deliverable. I keep thinking it’s done and then I complete more of the movie and end up adding to the ‘Art Of’ stash. So… it’ll happen soon. In the meantime, I hope everyone has enjoyed the odds and ends that I’ve sent. 
As for the movie- this is the most fun I’ve ever had working on a project! As you know, animation of this kind can take a very long time, but production at this point is going faster than ever. I’m working with a great background painter (Brennan Hornburg) and two amazing animators (James Pierson and Blake Bush) and I’m really proud of what we’ve accomplished this year. I’ve included one of Brennan’s backgrounds here .
Thanks again for your support and I hope life is treating you all very well!
Genuinely,
Lance

The past few weeks I’ve been working with a really talented London animator named James Pierson on these crowd scenes for Boxer Story. It’s been a fun experience.
