Another one, with a graphics tablet

Thursday, October 25th, 2007

Okay so basically I was deciding whether I wanted to get a new setup for animation. I was looking at animation desks, and graphics tablets to decide whether or not I would go paperless. It seems like it’s kind of becoming the rage now, 2d animation, but done completely digitally. In any […]

A nice pair of legs

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Check this one out. It’s the second one, the first one looks like it has a limp.
Edit: Here’s the updated version –

I started on the front view… His feet don’t look right, his arms surprisingly look ok…


General Figure rotation

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

I decided to make 8 frames showing a standing rotation. It’s not perfect, but it will do, as I needed to be able to see how the figure would face in each direction as an aide to animating the walk cycles. Also I will probably just need 8 standing poses, but I will […]

A little update

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Got the feet right, now the arms are wrong. I think I need to take on a completely different tack on this.


Enchanted Lands - Attempt at enchanted animation.

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

This is junky, after fooling around with gimp for several hours i finally got the animation part working fine. Then I noticed that part of it is cut off. Of course the animation sucks. I tried to do as limited as possible and then inbetween it. it started out with 4 […]

A small work in progress — a start at shading.

Monday, October 1st, 2007

I’m really in uncharted territory here now — shading. I attempted a few things, one is the walls, basically the light is more or less coming from directly overhead… more towards the dresser than the foreground objects.
I’m not sure what i’m supposed to be doing here. I have an idea of where the […]

John’s Room Work in progress #2

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

Okay so basically i had another go at it. I changed a few of the colors, I straighted some lines, it’s almost starting to look decent. Tell me what you think.
First one with the line drawing removed.

Second with 50% lines

Third fully opaque line drawing over the top.

Give me suggestions, thoughts, or opinions.

John’s room work in progress #1

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

Okay I started a basic paintover, using the technique of putting the sketch on a layer above the painting using multiply which basically means the white shows through and i can paint under the sketch lines.
I just decided to do it to show a friend, but if you’re curious — this part isn’t even finished […]

Black sketch #2

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

Well here it is, black sketch number 2… things have been adjusted again… this time the quality may look a little worse, because I was attempting to not use sketchy lines, which produces crappy non-straight lines, verses sketchy straight ones… in any case this one is better in the fact that I added the […]

Continuing to post —

Saturday, August 18th, 2007

I’m going to post anyways… i’ll fill in the rest of the posts if I can get my blog onto another webhost.
First black pencil sketch… Not sure how the final clean up is going to turn out, but I modified this sketch a bit… made the dresser only 4 drawers and the bookcase only 5 […]
