Behold my piece for Illustration Friday's theme this week being "Launch".  This is a robot squid rocket launching itself through the water.  This piece was all done in Flash.  No photoshop love this time around.

This is not the first time I did an art work piece for the therme "Launch".  I created an animated loop for Loopdeloop in May 2011.  Thought I would include here since they are related ;)

Launch from Marta Tesoro on Vimeo.

My main hobby which drawing and animating in my spare time is the same as my profession and it is something I feel truly blessed in.  There are times when am doing work and all I want to do is to work on my own thing and lately, since things have been busy, I have been doing most of my personal work around 11:00 in the evening till the wee hours.  I am not annoyed or anything like that...I just wish there was more time in the day and that I wasn't human and didn't need rest and food or toilet breaks.  Sometimes I wish I could just switch certain functions/needs off and then turn them on again accordingly.  Maybe this is why I have drawn something cyborg and robotic twice in a row now.

I am planning to work, go to gym and hopefully do a looped animation for Loopdeloop this month.  So many things to do...so little time

  3. The animation is great. like a creepy jack in the box. I love the robot squid too. I've been watching lots of alien TV and movies... it reminds me a little of that stuff. but then I may be obsessed with aliens right now.

  4. Looks great, I love the idea of a robot squid!

  5. WOW! Love the illustration and the video share is cool too!

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog. You have really cool stuff! My daughter is a graphic design student. She works with all the Adobe and Illustrator programs but hasn't worked with Flash yet, I will have to show her your work--it's awesome!

  7. Your animation is just fantastic. You are so talented! Inspires me to get back into animation myself.

    And I love your drawing for Launch. Amazing it was all drawn in Flash.

  8. Hahahaha, this is what happens when a robot squid eats a metal burrito. Love it!
