Halloween Costumes 2011

‘Super T.I.M.E. Force’ Preview

Super T.I.M.E Force – First Peek from Capy! on Vimeo.

Had to share this neat looking preview to the upcoming adventure game Super T.I.M.E. Force, from Canada based indie game studio Capy Games.  The design and style of this looks so fun and enjoyable.  Head over to their site and check out their other projects. (Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery is gorgeous, as well)

YOU PICK OUR NEXT MASH-UP!

Fire up those chainsaws,  and board up the house, there are zombies a coming!

For the first time ever on Draw2D2 we want YOU to decide our next mash-up! Tell us which geeky things you would like to see mashed up with zombies!

Thanks everyone! Now get to the picking!

The Schwarzenegger Trilogy

The Schwarzenegger Trilogy from Brainbow on Vimeo.

LA animation studio Brainbow created this animated short, consisting of 1600 hand drawn frames using Highlighter markers.  I love how some of the frames are designed with no color at all, and how the backgrounds have just enough information to register.  Well done!
