Motor Zombie Ice Cream!

It pretty much doesn't make sense... But here is an illustration of a group of Motor-Zombie-Pirate-Cowboys that are attacking an ice cream truck in a post-apocolyptic no ozon-layer time!

Confuzzled? This was for the icecream themed illustration fun-time on:

The new Suited! Update 01

Yes, update 01. Since more will follow! I'm working on a film called "Suited". If you're a "fan" you know that there has already been an episode of Suited... Well forget that! We're redoing it! (Better Character, better animation, better story!)

I'm not giving away everything, but here are two concept designs. They are from my favorite scene.

Oh and if you'd like to follow the progress of this project (and other projects) be sure to follow my twitter! It's brand new! I'll be releasing more designs and even animations there exclusive to followers.

Look what I got!

I won this Wacom Bamboo Medium on Newgrounds. I participated in a simple competitions and I won. The Wacom Bamboo is much better then I expected. Much better then my Graphire 4 that is! It has a mouse, extra pentips, a pen holder and this cool swirly thing that lets you zoom in and out. Same as an Ipod, but now it glows all blue! Huray! Here's a picture:

Newgrounds is a great place to post your work, you'll always get at least a few thousend views the first two days, and a lot of comments. Also, you get extra views on your website or blog by people who are interested in the rest of your work. Sure Newgrounds contains a lot of crappy stuff too, but that's all the same on Youtube/Vimeo/Blogspot and pretty much any place on the internet.

Oh and check out the Coloring Page Maker i created too, it has music and all that stuff now as well.
Click on the picture.

Long post, I know, but this week was also the week in which my 250th comic was published in the paper. I won't bother scanning in the paper since it is in Dutch and all that. But here's comic nr. 250 translated in English, just for you!

The last drinks are on us!

This is the last one of the vendingmachine series. You might wonder "vendingmachines? What does that have to do with this animation or animation at all??"... It's a long story! Don't hurt your brain on it, it's not worth it...

Anyway, this time I tried out a full 3D animation. Fun!

Okay, now this is work from a year ago, but I still wanted to share it now! We made this great fun little puppet short. So no animation for a change.
By me (Niels Beekes), Natali Voorthuis and Jeroen Kofferman. Natali did a great job on making the puppets!
