Guys.. I bought a Cintiq :D

For anyone who doesn't know what the "Cintiq" is. it's a pen display tablet.. simply a Tablet with a screen on it. can you imagine the difference that it could make? no more hard time with connecting your eye with your arm. your actually drawing directly on the screen. This could save plenty of time and effort. and of course insures the quality.

Cintiq is a wacom tablet, witch means it is the best, and witch also means it is expensive. I got me the little one "12wx" and it cost me a fortune. anyway I'm so happy with it.

I drew this sketch once I installed it on my computer.. I guess it means "Now what?!!"

"Colors" supposed to be a kids animation show, we are preparing a pilot episode for it here in Maspiro. I'm going to animate the whole show. it's easy because the episodes are going to be only 1 minute for each.

I did these character designs for a sketchbook and a color-pack, they are the heroes of the show. I used Fireworks.

House of Tales

I've been working on This for more than a month. and here it is.. my first animated cartoon series. this will be aired on Nile Family in Ramadan. I'm so happy with it, this is what I've always looking for. this is ME :D

The series is called "House of Tales" it's a children show. I did only 7 episodes of the show. the other 7 were traditional animated by the rest of the Art department team. every episode was had a separate story line. so the variety of animation style from one episode to another wasn't a problem.

And I got the title sequence also.. the montage and mixage wasn't that good, maybe it was bad. but I'm really happy with it. I was working every 3 minute episode from scratch in only 3 days! I was on fire. I think I got my spirit back again. check it out.

It's not what I had in mined, but that's what they liked at Robocon. They wanted a mascot character for the contest. They wanted it to be a "Pharaoh Robot!" and they wanted it to be added to the logo they sent me. witch is by the way simple and nice. and the result was this presentation for the stationary. and yes.. they liked it!

These are the character designs I made before, but they were rejected.

Robocon is a robot contest! it's being held by Higher Education Ministry and ERTU "Egypt Radio and Television Union" for the colleges and institutes to contribute as teams, I guess the purpose is to encourage the robotic industries. the event holds locally every year in different countries around the world under the banner of ABU "Asia-pacific Broadcasting Union", and holds Internationally in one of those countries every year also.

This year Robocon international contest will be held in Egypt. aside from the local Robocon contest. That's two big events in one year. anyway a friend of mine in Maspiro "Sherif" -He has my name!- recommended me to the Union to design the logo and identity of this year's both local and international contests.

I started with putting concept arts and logo designs as a presentation to the organizers. nothing they liked so far. I still can't tell what are they have in mind.

Cultural Center

Friend of mine "Mansour" he is aslo a fellow teacher at college. he is creating a short film for the "Cultural Center" about the fascination of books. it's involved in some cultural campaign of reading books I guess. anyway he did the artwork and the character design and the layout of the film, and he asked me to do the animation. the budget on this was very low but I'm happy to work on it.

This is some sample shots that are still in production process.
