Too Draw to Think

I'm an animator/illustrator working at Make llc. in Minneapolis. Not a lot to say for myself other than the fact that all I like to do is draw and animate!

Shot 240 Ramirez Linework from Joshua Schneider on Vimeo.

As promised, some progress on Anny Vigil!

This is Ramirez—an eccentric villain in the story. I got the opportunity to work with Josh Tomar for Ramirez’s voice. Josh’s super expressive range has made Ramirez really fun to animate!

Go check him out at his website! http://joshtomar.com/

Another poster for my 2D animated personal film Anny Vigil! This one features the main villain Sal "Skinny" Sanders.
I’ve been hard at work producing the animation and I haven’t posted in a while. So, I thought I’d make one more of these while I finish up a sequence that I’ll be posting up later this week.

Shot 47 Cleanup from Joshua Schneider on Vimeo.

Here it is! All cleaned up and colored. I still have to animate the shadows, but that will be a pass I’m leaving as the final task once the the first act is fully animated.

Hey evr’body!

I’ve been busy-busy working on completing shots for my personal film Anny Vigil the Vigilante. Most of them have been really brief shots like this one but I figured I’d share this where it’s at since I’m feeling particularly jazzed about how it’s looking thus far. Really glad that Dawn Bennet lended her voice talent for Anny!

I’ll be posting more soon. Starting to get to the good stuff, finally!

Thought I’d take a tiny break from animating to do this 19th centry western portrait of Anny :D She probably would never be seen wearing this but I’ve been animating mostly shots of just bandits and thugs so I had the urge to draw her.

I’ve been kinda tumblr-inactive lately while I animate on Anny so here are some character designs I did for a project at work.

Did this while waiting for a friend to arrive. She should be chewing gum… Ah well.

Recently finished recording sessions with my two main character voice actors! Dawn Michelle Bennett is voicing Anny and Boris Hiestand is voicing both Jon and Sal. Will post photos of the actors once I create the Anny Vigil Facebook page!
In the meantime, here are their blogs:dawnbennett.tumblr.comhttp://borishiestand.blogspot.com/
