After publishing the previous post, I realized I had already done a digital charcoal drawing like that a while back.
I created these guys for an animated short that I was working on in school; unfortunately the project started falling apart and didn’t amount to much. The concept is so cool though! I hope to be able to re-work it someday.
So I felt like drawing last night and couldn’t figure out what to draw. I was then looking at the little boy I drew last week, and thought that I should draw a little girl that would be his equal but opposite. so here is what I came up with:
Ok, I’m going to try something here. Let’s see if I can successfully connect a youtube file to my blog… (I am now hosting my own video)
This is an quick pencil test I did one day to try out a free animation program I found on the internet called Plastic Animation Paper. It was a lot of fun, but hard to get any clean drawing made. I use a 4×5 wacom tablet, which means that if you take into consider the tablet to monitor ratio, I was effectively drawing this little dude on the surface area of a postage stamp.
Oh, and I should probably mention that he is jumping over a canyon. I just wan’t able to use multible layers with the program to add a background.
Weeee, my second post! Not that anyone is really going to notice. I haven’t really told anyone about the site yet, but I figure it will be nice to build a few of these up before I start brodcasting it to the world.
Here is a quick sketch I did with my tablet today. I’ve been playing around with character designs a lot lately and figured that I would try my hand at one of them big head, large eyes, small nose goofy looken kids.
A lot of people tell me that some of my characters look like me. Most of the time I don’t see it, but this one I admit could be a young me.
