What’s up guys!

Last May, while doing my student short EL TERROR, I had the great opportunity to design a puppet with Furry Puppet Studio for a music video. Sadly, the music video will not be release publicly…But the creative director told me I could show you some of my work on it. So here it is! I don’t have a pictures of the whole body but I’m sure there is one of it on their facebook page.

It’s really weird and funny to see one of my scrappy digital doodle to turn into an actual real three dimensional thing!! Seriously the picture with the expressions totally freaks me out! He really looks like he’s alive for real! Like he has a job, a family and other stuff that real people have (toothbrush). I don’t know…

Anyway, I hope I’ll have the chance to design other puppets with Furry Puppet Studio because it’s just super awesome.

Hope you enjoy all of this!

I’m out!

*sigh* I really wish my sister would stop implying that I’m a lazy, no-good, useless piece of trash all the time.

Story of Haruka and Feebas 

Haruka met Feebas when he was young. He finally evolved when Haru is Grade 12, but he was too big to stay at home. In the end, Haru decided to let him live in the sea. Milotic was very sad that he can’t stay with Haru and take a bath with him life before. So Haru stopped by sea everyday to see him. 


Okay, time for some serious art. I started this up a while ago and decided to do a genderbent version, for the heck of it. Still haven’t figured out a suitable name for Ferdinand’s female counterpart that I like yet though.


Badlands Engineer Reskin 

installation instruction is in the .rar file

contains reskins for world and view models of engie

I’ll most likely work on Spy next.

I’m also planning to make outlined models to go with these skins though I’d probably do that after I’ve made skins for the rest of the mercs.

Dear Mr Baxter! Could you please tell me which software do you use to make your lovely animated pencil tests? Am I close assuming that you scan the paper drawings and clean them up in Photoshop,then animate there as well?How do you achieve the smoothness? I'm an illustrator starting out in animation and would love to know more about different techniques to achieve quick results when explaining the animation idea to someone... Thank you very much! :)


Hi Brujet. Thanks for the kind words. The only software that I’ve used in the pencil tests here is Digicel Flipbook, but that is only used to shoot the drawings, I don’t use it to do the animation. All the animation is done with pencil and paper, in exactly the same way that hand drawn animation has been done since the 1930s. The only difference is that, instead of using a film camera and capturing the drawings on film as was the norm until about twenty years ago, I’ve used a digital camera and captured the drawings into a computer program. There’s no Photoshop or other digital animation going on, although I have done other projects using software to manipulate drawings, I haven’t posted any of that yet. Any feeling of smoothness that you might see is just me being careful in where I place the elements of each drawing. There’s a lot of traditional animation technique that’s designed to disguise the fact that it’s a bunch of separate drawings.

If you’re interested in traditional hand drawn techniques, there are a couple of books that I usually recommend to people: “The Illusion of Life” by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, and “The Animator’s Survival Kit” by Richard Williams. :)


Mess, sketch, and line-art for Recipes for the Dead: Steam Minted Meringue!

I feel like I’m drawing a lot of piles of roses lately, this is the third time I’ve invoked that particular space filler. I can’t help it though. They’re all curly and fun. And technically thematic to the issue!

i’d chime in with a haven’t you people ever heard of



I wish I had a friend who was into Five Nights at Freddy’s. Then I would steal their phone and set an alarm for sometime before 6AM that played Freddy’s happy little jingle of death.

And then just… wait for an angry, freaked out call.
