Hey guys! Here are some Blonde Thunder color goodies. Layout and interior designs by titmouse secret weapon Brandon Cuellar. The man is a machine!
Hey everyone. My name is Abraham Martinez. I recently finished background painting duties at Titmouse inc. for a show called Motorcity. It was so much fun working with so many creative and talented peeps. What a great experience! The BG’s posted up top are of the Burner’s hangout called Jacob’s Place. I was lucky enough to get to bring the fun on these amazing layouts with the direction of Chris Prynoski and Antonio Canobbio. That painting at top right is what Jacob’s almost looked like. Cool but it still wasn’t right. It needed “More fresh styles!!” So After a couple tweaks, a great call on a color shift and some more awesome MC graffiti, the painting on top left is what you see on the show. Cool story bro!
Major credit goes to the layout artists on the show: Brandon Cuellar, Roger Oda, Khang Le, Kirk Shinmoto, Angela Sung, Connie Wong, Arthur Loftis, Tim Ridley and Tec Manalac.
I’ll be posting more work soon and will also be posting links to the amazing artist I was able to work with. But in the meantime here is a link to my blogger where you can find some of my other work. Thanks for lookin!
Abraham finally got a Tumblr! He established some of the colors for The Hangout area!
Quick, everyone go dogpile on the new guy!!
Why, exactly, would Disney XD choose to air Motorcity out of order? It’s a practice that often ends in disaster (e.g. Firefly, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes), and hardly ever endears fans to the network (oh Fox, we are never forgiving you). While it’s true that Motorcity isn’t serialized, there are some solid examples where airing the episodes in order would have made lots more sense.
I wanted to take an in-depth look at how the episodes actually aired versus how they were intended to air by the show’s creators and the subsequent results. (Note: Major spoilers for ‘Fearless’ and minor spoilers for ‘Reunion’ ahead, neither of which have been aired on television)
Julie episode this week! Sweater girl not Motorcity related, sorry.
Why there hasnt been a photo set of this car is just SAD. The Blond Thunder is such a sexy ass car, not to mention it reminds me of megas XLR

This is the last post about Dutch’s flashback sequence. First image is when Mike introduced rest of the burners to dutch for the first time. I drew tiny burners with mini cars. :) Drawing them mini size was so fun, especially their cars. haha. Then Mike handing dutch a burner logo, and him putting the logo on him. Last image is group shot of burners. I also included some of the screen shots from the episode. Some of my drawings were used in backgrounds and laser eyed dragon crane. Nice<3! It was incredible opportunity to work on something so non character design job and they used my actual drawings in the final product!! how awesome is that? Even It took me way longer to draw/paint the sequence than 10 seconds animation, It was such a fun project to work on, it was totally worth it! Also, thank you so much for your interest and nice comments. I read them each one and it makes me very happy. :)
Entire sequence was composited by Keith Kin Yan.
Thank you for looking and please continue to watch motorcity! :)!!! Thank you!
Last series of artworks used for Dutch’s flashback sequence!
All done by DrawB4UEat! Check out her work! It’s amazing!
NEW MOTORCITY!!! TONIGHT!!! 8:30 PST!!! DISNEY XD!!! RIDE OF THE FANTASY VANS!!!
My favorite alternate attire in the show is Kane’s laserball getup. If we ever make action figures, this is what I want. A great design by Joanna (drawb4ueat). I usually cringe at grown men with hairy chests in v-necks and skinny jeans, but this change of clothes for Kane is perfect.
aw ye Kane art
We had the day off from work here to celebrate the birthing of ‘Merika so I figured I would get started on my Motorcity promo poster thing a little early. For once! Even tried something a little different and more rough. Hope you enjoy it.
Fandom, we NEED more viewers!!! Please feel free to reblog to help get the word out about this all new episode of Motorcity that airs on Thursday at 8:30. It’s gonna be sooooooooooooooooooooooo friggin’ awesome. I can’t wait to see all of the awesome new fanart and reactions after you watch it tomorrow night. You’re gonna lose your little minds.
I also just found out that in addition to Itunes… you can also download new episodes from the sony online store after midnight the night they air. They are beautiful HD copies and only cost $2.99. That’s how I’ve been watching it off of my PS3. Just figured some of you might not be aware of that pretty awesome alternate viewing option.
REBLOGGING THIS FOR THOSE WHO DIDN’T CATCH THIS LAST NIGHT:
Motorcity (8:30) - Disney XD
0.293 million viewers, #29; 0.102 million adults 18-49 (0.1 rating), #29
And Tron Uprising’s for comparison, which has seen a huge drop:
Tron: Uprising (8:00) - Disney XD
0.387 million viewers, #27; 0.156 million adults 18-49 (0.1 rating), #27
Overall, both of them have seen a drop. This is most likely due to the sudden schedule change that occurred last week. However, I want to remind all of the European fans out there that Motorcity will be premiering in the U.K. THIS Saturday! So be sure to tune in and show your support! The show really needs it!
(i suggest headphones and loud volume!)
FOR THOSE WHO DON’T OR CAN’T DOWNLOAD THE PILOT - WATCH IT ON YOUTUBE RIGHT HERE.
So happy to have the opportunity to contribute to the design of Jacob’s market in Motorcity! This is the exterior that I did. :)
Dutch is officially my favorite character from Motor City.
That creative man who is so frequently under appreciated. I love Dutch.
So here’s my first Motor City fanart.
