Cancellation

Posted on Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

Dave!I managed to get most of my messed-up schedule repaired today. The worst part about it all is having to call and cancel out on people who were counting on me... and some things I was really looking forward to doing had to be given up. I'm trying to make the best of the situation, but sometimes it's hard to find an up-side.

Except when one of the things you're canceling is helping Bad Robert move his furniture out of storage. There's really no down-side to missing out on dragging heavy objects up two flights of stairs. Well, except Robert promised to buy me Taco Bell if I helped, and I love me the Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes (especially when somebody else is paying for them).

Of course, now that I think about it, my restrictive diet wouldn't allow me to have Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes in the first place! I'd be risking my life moving his furniture with no cheese-covered reward at the end! That hardly seems fair now, does it?

Anyway...

While I was backing up my hard drive this morning, I ran across a project that I had started a while back, but never had time to finish. The idea was to come up with some character "style sheets" for Lil' Dave and Bad Monkey, then hire a professional to create 3-D models of them for me. This is a lot harder than it sounds, because translating a 2-D cartoon into 3-D doesn't always work, and you need to find somebody who has a lot of experience doing it. On top of that, it's quite a challenge for me to visualize the characters having depth... I never put any thought of them existing that way while I was slapping them together years ago...

Lil' Dave Style Sheet
Awwwww... cute!

Ooh! Ooh! Reaper is on TV now! I hope that the lead character doesn't turn into a whiny little bitch like what happened with Chuck last night. Boy does that get old in a hurry.

  1. The ties on the shoes are the cutest.

    Hope things are going ok for you . . . sending good vibes to the Apple Capital . . .

    Oh man, Little Dave and Bad Monkey action figures! Look out Barbie.

  4. Robin says:

    Now, that sounds more like the Dave we know and love! I’m glad you’re getting everything sorted out.

  5. Avitable says:

    Chuck was a bit whiny, but he is supposed to be a slacker and a wimp, so that does make sense.

    Are you going to watch Pushing Daisies?

    3-D Bad Monkey?
    Just in time for Halloween! trick, trick, trick

    1) I like your realism by hiking up the front of his shirt as he lifts his hands. Shows your attention to detail

    2) Why did you let spiders get on his shoes?

    3) Re #1, I guess his pants also got hiked up, since there’s no bulge any more. I wasn’t looking, though, if you were wondering

  8. Hilly says:

    a.) very cute!
    b.) glad someone else thinks Chuck needs to just sit there and be pretty, mouth closed ;).

  9. Michelle says:

    Isn’t this what I did with your Ninja Pope Dave? Pssht. T’ain’t all that hard. I could make you one of these if that’s what you’re talking about here.

    RE: Whall’s comments: (sung to an old but popular commercial) “Sometimes you dress to the right, sometimes you don’t”

    heh. Not enough sleep.

  10. ChillyWilly says:

    Watched the first episode of Reaper. It was actually pretty funny. It’s going into my regular download list, alongside Weeds, Family Guy and How I Met Your Mother.

  11. ChillyWilly says:

    Based on the “Dave Approved” reply, I’m getting “Pushing Daisies” now.
