Figures Practice

Time ranging from 30-second sketches to 5-minute drawing.  This was intended to be a warm-up but I ended up losing track of time.

Merry Christmas!

where winter nights are 72 degrees,

not a single working chimney is in sight,

and all the reindeers are pampered chihuahuas in costume.

Santa Chair

Funny how once Santa left the chair, everyone wanted to sit on it and take pictures.

Fat Santa

This guy was at the Grand Californian in Downtown Disney tonight.  He made several children cry.

Just playing with various body shapes. Trying to go for a more cartooney feel.

David vs Goliath Animatic (part 1)

Well, this was fun to do.

If you keep annotation on, you can read the dialog.  I don’t have any voice actors so this is gonna be like a silent film.

I still need to tighten the rest because they’re all roughs at this point, and there are a lot of hook-up problems that need to be fixed, but I thought I’d share this because it came out decent.  This is the first 11 scenes.  The sequence has about 60+ scenes total.  Hope you guys enjoy it.  I certainly had fun making it.

Dun Dun Dun

Did I ever mention how much I like cowboys?  I can't seem to stand too many cowboy movies, though.

Coffeeshop Sketches

Went coffeeshop sketching yesterday and found the cutest couple ever sitting on a couch across the room.

Then I tried reversing the role and it came out rather disgusting because it looked too much like reality.

David vs Goliath part 3

The next batch of boards from "David vs Goliath

 Goliath: "Well, well, well..."

Goliath: "Guess I ain't the only one interested in the documents."

David: "..."

David: "No..."

David: "I guess not."

David: "I'll tell you what, though."

David: "I bet you're not getting paid as much--"

David: "-- as I do--"

David: "-- to steal this"

Goliath: "Grrr..."

Goliath: "Hand over the purse! Don't make me---"

David: "A PURSE?!"

David: "It's a SATCHEL!"

David: "Didn't you know? Indiana Jones has one."

Slippery When Wet

Oh man, this was fun to do.

David vs Goliath part 2 (image heavy!)

So I've decided to call this hand-to-hand combat assignment "David vs Goliath."  The first two scenes can be found in the previous post as an animatic.  This one's just gonna be board panels because I'm too lazy to make an animatic.

Since this one is image-heavy, I'm putting the rest of the boards under cut. The rest of the boards can be found after the jump.

Digitally Coherent

Drawing with a tablet has always been the bane of my existence, but now that I finally managed to find a brush setting that works for me, it doesn't seem so bad anymore.  The overly smooth look of digital art has never been my cuppa tea, so the solution is to use a "jittery" brush.

I named the brush "Caffeine Addict".
  1. Pick any Elliptical brush and change the settings:
  2. Angle: 18°, Roundness: 45%, Hardness: 100%, Spacing: 1%
  3. Shape Dynamics - Size & Angle Jitter 100%,  Minimum diameter: 0px, Roundness jitter 39%, Minimum Roundness 9%
  4. Other Dynamics - Opacity Jitter 15%, Flow Jitter 100%

It's 7AM now, so it's time to sleep, but I got the first two scenes of this week's board done.
