Fate Saga is a fantastical, action/drama animated series about fate and free will, and follows Cain, a knight who can see the future. With only glimpses of prophecies to guide him, Cain interferes in natural disasters and war in hopes of stopping his tragic visions from happening.

However, in a world on the brink of an apocalypse, is knowing the final outcome enough to change it?

Fate Saga is an original animated action/drama series taking place in a fantastical world based on Medieval Europe.

Fate Saga will be at Omni Expo 2014 This Weekend!

Hello everyone!  I hope any students and teachers are starting (or getting ready to start) a productive and relaxing summer.  I've taken this short time to preparing for this summer's conventions, and now my first con of the summer is approaching - Omni Expo at Orlando, FL.

I will have an art table there located at table 17.  And amongst my usual wares I will be selling Fate Saga merchandise and commissions.  I hope to see you there!

Above are some Fate Saga warm up sketches.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy (belated) Mother's Day!  I know I'm a day late but late is better than never, right?  I like to try and get in a holiday Fate Saga drawing when I can, and who else would be a better candidate for a Mother's Day image than the only major character who is a mother?  Rori may not be Guile's mum by blood, but she's the closest to one that he's got.

It was an interesting challenge to draw Rori looking genuinely happy/laughing while still keeping her on model/in character.  The woman hardly ever smiles, and when she does it's usually cynical.  Guile's supposed to be about 3 or so in this picture.  I'm not sure if he's too small since Rori's a small lady (about 5'1-ish) to begin with. 

I hope you like it!

Fate Saga Updates and Tofugu Animated Short Film

Hello everyone!  As readers of this blog may know this past year has been pretty heavy work-wise.  On a good note, I've had several major animated freelance projects, and I'm finishing up my first year at the University of South Florida and third year at the University of Tampa.  While it hasn't given me much time to work on my own projects, it has really helped give me more experience and networking contacts both of which will only be a help to Fate Saga in the future. As my pet project, Fate Saga is always on my mind, and with the summer should open up time for more frequent updates. 

With summer comes convention season, and I will be attending some new local cons.  The ones currently on the list are:
Omni Expo
Fanboy Expo
Tampa Bay Comic Con

I will add any additional conventions to the list as I sign up for them.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend Florida Supercon this year, but I am excited to see what these new conventions will be like.  I hope to see you there!

Finally, I wanted to take the opportunity to promote a fun and sassy short film, Tofugu, created by a brilliant young lady, Rina Walker, for my Beginning Animation class.  She made every part of this project, from concepts to voice overs and animation, in the span of about 6 weeks (which, for those who may be familiar with the animation production process, is an insane amount of work in such a short amount of time).  As a teacher, it's a joy to see the creativity and work that comes from my students. Please feel free to check it out!
