the mechanical man of my dreams
Emmy C is pure gold
Before boarding Soos and the Real Girl, we had a couple of days to think up some concept for the new characters in the episode.
Alonso came up with the final design for Melody pretty much instantly, and I played around with some Giffany concepts, because if I were allowed I would only ever draw villain characters from now until the end of time. Villains are just super interesting, okay??
We didn’t have the full script at the time, so for these early sketches I played around a bit with what kind of person Giffany might be. I always end up overthinking things like: Did Giffany start off as an evil video game or did she slowly turn into one? It must be pretty sad to be constantly returned back to the store, it’s like a life of … infinite rejection. I think that’d make anyone crazy. @_@
It’s a bunch of unnecessary navel-gazing, but I’d like to think that maybe some of that pathos shows through in the drawings. IDK! :P
Control + Alt + Delightful!
Gravity Falls: Soos and the Real Girls Roughs
First let me say if you’ve liked the last 2 episodes, give some props to Matt Braly who directed both of them. This episode was his baby and I watched him develop this thing from the ground up.
Second, this isn’t inspired by Friday Night at Freddy’s or whatever it’s called. It’s inspired by Showbiz pizza which most kids that grew up in the 80’s spent time in.
Third a lot of people have asked me about my comment of being done with GF in February, to clarify, I’ll be done drawing the second season around then. It’ll take time for those episodes to finally reach your tv/internet thievery. My future beyond that is uncertain.
Alonso Ramirez Ramos pretty much designed Giffany’s animatronic form and I just revised a few things. My buddy Sunil Hall took a picture of me drawing that gross Hoo Ha Owl logo midway, so I included that so you can see a bit of the process.
RobertRyan Cory! If you look closely at his neck you can see his animatronic wires
Enjoy tonight’s episode everyone!

New episode of Gravity Falls TONIGHT!!
This was my first episode as a board artist! I will post one of my sequences after the episode airs :D
I think it was Alonso’s idea to put Soos in a traditional Japanese wedding robe. Not sure if that scene made it into the final cut?? But it was cute!
From one of our best board artists, Sabrina Cotugno!
Soos and the Real Girl marks my first episode storyboarding for Gravity Falls!
I was so nervous, I had no idea what I was doing back then. Thank goodness for our wonderful, hilarious director Matt Braly ( radrappy ) for being SO patient and so encouraging. Thank you Matt!!
On this episode, I board alongside the INCREDIBLE Sabringa Cotugno ( arythusa ) and Alonso Ramirez. They’re both so insanely talented and kind. I was starstruck from day 1 and still am!
Enjoy the silly fruits of our labor!
Soos and the Real Girl premieres Monday, September 22 on Disney XD at 8:30 PM! Check your local listings!!!

Gravity Falls; Sock Opera Rough Designs
Sorry for the delay, back from vacation.
Somebody figured out that Bipper in the Reverend outfit was inspired by Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter. That’s my favorite movie and a big influence on many artist I know. There are other secrets hidden in the designs though…
