Bits & Pieces

Some random stuff floating around on my hard drive:

Go-Go Dancers are for the *secret* project ;)



Here's a little peek into my creative process, from an episode of "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy", where I lay to rest the idea many people have that I don't do roughs.

A rare self-portrait, done for an interview on
the Frederator Blog.

How awesome is Lou Romano?
Pretty damn awesome, but you knew that. He just posted a treasue trove of BG color comps he did way back on THE POWERPUFF GIRLS. If you haven't checked out his blog already, swing on by by clicking on the image above!

Niko Anesti said...

ah more from the secret project! At this rate we'll have the entire thing out on the net before they even finish it! As if that was ever gonna happen! Nice "rough" man there's like 64434325 more lines in my roughs, I kinda draw by elimination, I guess. Make enough lines and your bound to spit out the right one eventually, or almost first thing if your a certain Mr. Battle.

Thanks for the heads up on Lou's post, Chris. I saw that the other day and my jaw hit the floor. I really can't get enough of that stuff (or yours). Too bad he has commenting disabled.

Nice doodley doodles CB, and the Lou R stuff is awesome too. What new in the world of Battle?

Chris Battle said...

Joe- By the time the secret project gets finished, it's gonna be about something else entirely. Edits, y'know.

Minja- YEah, we all gotta have some lunch, with Min-Lee, too! Eddie's doin' F.L. boards on the BEE, so he should be around here again soon...

J.J.- What a typically bland threat from you!

Muks- VERY cool meeting all you guys; Yes, I see alcohol in our future. Looks like you had a good time in Vegas. Much congrats to the newlyweds!

Donna- What's up girl! Ask my best man... he'll tell you his opinion ;)

Chritchell- Sheesh... the last 2 posts weren't enuff original stuff for ya? There wuz even a nekkid lady in there, fer chissakes!

Shane- Thanks, man. I'll have to make it down to DW for lunch and maybe a Gilmore screening! ....and to the little punk motherfucker who made off with my wife's iPod: Karma will indeed be a massive BITCH for you.

JoBling- Busting my ass on THE MIGHTY B is what's going on for me these days! The self-portrait is very accurate, I'm afraid.

...and to everybody else, I'm totally humbled by all the compliments. Always glad you enjoy what I'm posting!
