New Flash Animation - Capoeira Angola

Capoeira is a martial art that has it's roots in Angola, Africa yet was developed by the enslaved africans in Brazil. Today it is one of the most visually exciting forms of martial arts out there. I have recently created a flash animation featuring a brief history on this art form for the intro to our groups web page that we are developing. It was done in my spare time but now I am inspired to do some more rough tests like this one. Click the link above to see.

This art is mad fonky man. "You ah' genius!" I dig the rememberance - as most our people need to not forget. Keep rockin' - as a matter of fact once I move on from the current project I am on (Portraits of my family) I am going to do some "Remember and Don't Forget Art." (RDFA)
Thanks for the inspiration and sharing this with us.

Thanks y'all.

Jamal: We have been building on these concepts for a while and I believe it's around the corner so you know I'm down to knock something out.

Dawood: I appreciate your comments. It's funny cause I was looking at my family tree and old deceased family member pics and was thinking that I need to make a memorial to them by illustrating them. You are already doing it so I am inspired to do that as well. Post them up so we can see.

Man! The dude in the middle in the bottom image is seriously getting his groove on. Damn! You really captured that emotion - he is a slave to the rhythm at that moment. This piece is magical - on some ol' Disney but not Disney "BADA"

You are mastering your character style.
It makes me feel good. "Good Vibrations"
