ARMSmasters Pitchparty 2011 Poster

Hi Everyone! I have some awesome news.

Through an amazing opportunity, the ARMSmasters crew will be participating in the 2011 Pitch Party competition in Animation Magazine's August issue (to debut at San Diego Comic Con)

This competition is a great opportunity for aspiring animation producers and designers like ourselves, who are not necessarily industry veterans but are working professionals with an idea to share, to get it out there infront of the industry vet's. There will be a Judges pick, readers choice via online voting and an editorial pick. No matter what, the idea gets an ad in that August issue and gets published the world over. This is something we couldn't pass up and so ARMSmaster's creator, Mike Winn, decided to work out a promo piece shot since we were overdue for one anyway. Ultimately we'll be having a print version of this and other pieces as well.

The poster was a bit of a marathon run to complete, admittedly. I received the rough drawing this past week, and weaving in and out of a 60 hour work week, cleaned it up and laid down the color. It was an exciting process - wonderful to be able to create an illustration after months doing stereo compositing, though - and we're pleased with the results overall.

If you're interested at all in ARMSmasters and would like to help us then please stay tuned to this space for notification as to when the online voting for the Readers Choice begins and for more information as we have plans to get onto Kickstarter and pursue several fund raising efforts this summer.

Thanks for hanging in there!
