Chicken Soup!!

Once again we really went crazy with this episode, trying to see how far we could push it! We're not really sure how we got certain things past, but we did and Ryan did an awesome job voicing a vital character, won't tell ya which one before you watch it but I think you'll figure it out!!... ENJOY!!!

Heres some process work...

And some sketches of me trying to work out a design for the pirate from the last episode:

Piratey Pirates!!!

Heres episode 13, we really dig this one, it seems as soon as we introduce a 'crazy' outside character the episodes seem to take on a life of there own! Our very own Ryan Cooper provided the voice of the pirate and did a mighty fine job if I do say so myself! Enjoy!!

Finally, something to show....

As promised heres the first 2 new episodes of our cartoon 'Sparkle Friends' we make for a NZ kids variety show called What Now. This years first episode really felt like we were making last years series. We ended last years series with a cliffhanger and therefore had to kick things off this year by wrapping up that story line, but as soon as we started the 2nd one we kinda took a new approach and really pushed the 'craziness' of the Sparkle Friends 'world' and have since made, possibly, the most insane cartoon for kids to come out of New Zealand! So we're pretty happy!
We also get a little longer to spend on animation this time round, we are giving ourselves 1 week per episode, where-as last year they were from script to screen in one week. We're still killing ourselves though, so thats cool!
Anyways, enjoy these first 2, they only get better (we reckon)...
