Greetings! My name is Carl Douglas, known by most under the handle of Argyle (Here is a link to my PixelJoint profile). 

My strong point is animation - be it characters or objects or otherwise - and I am available for contracts, outsourced art, project support, and generally all sorts of miscellany. As of currently, I am looking for paying project offers only.

I prefer to initially be contacted via e-mail at carldouglas[at]argylebox[dot]com (impossibly encrypted, must use advanced tools to figure out where to place the "@" and "."), or via PM on the boards here.

An ugly, plain text resume of my past client work can be found HERE.

Although this is a mostly pixel art-focused portfolio, I am also well-versed with vector and digital paint artwork. Samples can be given upon request. My preferred toolsets are Cosmigo ProMotion and Adobe's Creative Suite of applications.

    
         

  

   

  

  


 

______________________________________________

I also work well off of your pre-existing artwork!
The following animations were created for static non-animated sprites that artists other
than myself created and designed. I just made all the motion and effects that go with them.

I can vouch that Carl can produce some amazing animations in a variety of styles and resolutions.

He's done some amazing work, with animations consisting of hundreds of frames. He's always delivered.

A review from animator Mike Scott was put up on my Pixelation Portfolio Thread recently, who had the following to say about our experience working together:
"Carl's work is awesome, he's done a fair amount on a project I'm busy with, his work is amongst the best of the pixel artists and animators I've worked with. I can highly recommend Carl, he (seems) extremely intelligent even though I'm from South Africa and he from the States and we've only conversed over email, he has brought a whole lot of awesome to the work I've given him, his rates are very reasonable, he has done what he's said he's gonna do, and I'm generally very pleased with Carl's work. He's gone beyond what I've asked of him, in certain instances, and delivered something of much higher quality than I originally imagined, which is super.

Nice one. Get Carl to do your pixel work. If my experience of a couple week's worth of work is anything to go by, you will be a happy person.
"
Thanks, Mike!

And also, thank you to everyone else I've had a pleasure of working with after I made the wise choice to make a profile thread on these boards. All <3's to the PixelJoint.

There have been major changes to my portfolio site, ArgyleBox.com, so please take a look for some updated samples and information. Thanks!

Also, another testimonial to mention:
I worked with Carl as a developer on the Flash version of the Hangover 2 game. I can vouch for his awesomeness of bringing a game to life with his great character designs and animations. You da man Carl!

No, Bryson. YOU da man. You.

Updated with some new samples and attached a link to a plain-text resume of past work I've done.

Also, here was another testimonial posted on my portfolio at the Pixelation forums from Gabriele "Abisso" from the FORGE project:
"I guess I shouldn't be that surprised to have found Carl's portfolio here, since I'm familiar with his work, but still it's a pleasant surprise.

I'm from the FORGE team as well, and although I wasn't the project leader at the time Carl lent us a hand, I've been directly in contact with him all the same, and commissioned him some tasks. Well, I definitely have to recommend him like my ex-colleague Duke already did.
He's been the official artist and animator of the project for about a year and I consider him to be the top when it comes to animations, and a really good pixel-artist as well. But it's not just that: he's a professional worker yet a really funny person to work with, making the team-life really enjoyable. His experience makes it easy for him to understand requests and grasp concepts related to game-making, thus making his material immediately usable in-game, without any need for technical touch-ups (and this saves a lot of time, believe me).

Oh, and he's got some mouths to feed, so don't be stingy!  

Seriously, I really hope there will be a chance to work together once again in the next future.

Best luck,

-Gabriele"
Thanks, Gabriele!

Enjoy.
