Cool; sounds good. I guess I got a little scared away from Illustrator when I was a little younger as the class I was in taught it more as a tracing/rotoscope tool by connecting points and stuff with the pen tool instead of actually drawing with a tablet or something. I almost couldn't comprehend it being so used to just picking up a pen/pencil and drawing. That said, I really like the new version of Illustrator and have been using it quite a bit lately.

Hey, not Leone related or anything, but you might enjoy this animated movie review I did since you're a fan of "The Critic" (it actually originates from a review a friend did on IMDb, but we re-did it under a Harry Knowles persona). Not my best animation by any means (it's mostly just talking heads and a few cutaways), but I hope you enjoy it. Definitely looked to "The Critic" for some influence on some of the shots too.

Thank you, sir! Really cool coming from you as I'm a pretty big reader of your blog and IMDb posts and really dig the stuff you write.

The stuff I attached/embedded that show up visually in my original post are all digital art. Currently I do my digital stuff mostly via Flash (drawn essentially by hand with a Wacom tablet) with some work done in Illustrator and do some photoshop type editing for some of it (though I actually started dabbling in digital art with MS paint and a mouse believe it or not, haha). My 2D animations are done frame-by-frame so they're just the stills pretty much but edited together or composited in an editing program (though sometimes I use Flash or After-Effects to do the more complex motion graphics stuff I can't just draw). Have been drawing my whole life though so I do do a lot of traditional (on paper) stuff as well usually in black and white and in pen. There's definitely more of that type of stuff on my Society6 and Facebook along with a Deviantart page I keep which has almost everything I've ever drawn on it from a certain point in my life on.

Also, it's not the best place to view my work, but you guys might want to check out my official website as well because it's all Western themed.

It all got deleted on Imdb, lol, the jist of it was, (a poster named Paycal posted) that an aging gunfighter trains a young disciple to kill a meek brothel owner who performs abortions on his women. It sounds like a moronic juxtaposition of anti abortion propaganda and ridiculous storyline to me,  why would you need a trained gunfighter to kill a "meek" brothel owner.  


I don't recall all the deleted comments, so I can't re-post them. However, the screenwriter himself has said to me that the film is not anti-abortion at all (it just happens to be about one isolated incident involving abortions). He said he is not interested in "message films". Another person who has read the script also commented on how he never would have expected people to infer such a message (based on the script, not the Kickstarter summary of course).

Its veiled anti abortion political propaganda check this out:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001466/board/thread/163165712?d=163165712&p=1#163165712

The film is not anti-abortion propaganda. You haven't even read the script.

I don't have the script to send you (contrary to what you may think, I'm not the director or even the writer), but check this out:

I don't understand what will happen if the amount of money needed for this isn't raised in given time?

It's all or nothing. If the amount of money needed isn't raised in the given amount of time, the project won't be funded. If you donate, you will only be charged if funding is successful.

A new film in the Spaghetti Western vein is soon to be in production. It stars Spaghetti Western veterans Dan van Husen and Brett Halsey. The film is allowing anyone to become a part of it. You can support the film by simply making a donation on it's Kickstarter page. Great prizes are being offered for contributing. If you always wanted a film credit, now is your chance.
