Lesson 4

I decided today that I would take the leap to lesson 4 in John K's $100,000 Animation School.

I started with the rabbit because that's how I have the print-outs ordered. This first scan is my first and second attempts, the drawing on top has notes that I made before I checked it against Preston's originals on the computer. Which admittedly was a terrible mistake.

So I checked both copies lining them up as best I could and found out that I was totally wrong about the fists, but was right that I had the body too long. I marked my corrections and attempted to construct the rabbit once more.

This seemed a lot closer, and indeed was, but I feel that it somehow degenerated but couldn't place my finger on it.

Rescanned and checked in photoshop, sure enough the legs are more out of tune than ever and the head is still to small, but now I know where I'm weakest, judging horizontal proportions and placing things that I can't easily map out.

Any suggestions or techniques on how to map these out more logically would be greatly appreciated.

It's that time again.

In other news, I don't know what is going on but this commercial is amazing.

Been Awhile

I got behind for a couple of days, was a bit under the weather which was keeping me tired all day long.

Anyways here's more practice with intermittent fooling around.

This last one is in the pocket moleskine I carry around, I was going to draw out the other cans that were sitting on the table downstairs, but I decided to do something else and added the little man afterwards.

Largely Practice

I started watching The Honeymooners on youtube, it's funny, but it's also kind of strange how much The Flintstones borrowed from it. I decided to check it out after seeing this cartoon on the very awesome New Year's Eve all day Looney Tunes marathon on Cartoon Network.

Anyways, here's an awful Jackie Gleason:

The rest of this is largely practicing from the Preston Blair book.

So my two resolutions for 09,

1. As with every year, draw more.
2. Keep this page updated.

So in that respect:

This song is terrific,

Also, drawings:

More to come.
