DreamWorks "DRAGONS: Riders of Berk" - FIREWORM

This is my design of the “FIREWORM” dragon in episode 8 "Portrait of Hiccup As A Buff Man" with and without fire fx that I did for the DreamWorks Marketing Division as well as the series.  They asked me to create a fire effect which was then used in the series!  I really liked how the Fire FX turned out!  The Fireworm is found in large groups and has the ability to superheat its skin burning everything it touches.  They also appear in episode 18 "Gem Of A Different Color". 
*tune-in tonight 7:30p on Cartoon Network to watch season 2 "Defenders of Berk" episode 2 "The Iron Gronckle".

Walt Disney Television Animation "MICKEY MOUSE" shorts

In July 2013, I was asked by my friend Paul Rudish, Creator and Executive Producer of Disney's new "Mickey Mouse" Short Cartoons to help out with Character Designs.  I would love to post what I've been drawing but unfortunately I am not allowed until the 2nd season shows begin airing!  Click here to watch a nice video of Paul Rudish discussing and drawing "Mickey Mouse".   And here's a link to the latest "Mickey Mouse" cartoon, "Panda-monium", Directed by Aaron Springer.  Enjoy!
