Wake up

Okay Wayne, I'll draw something. Just stop shaking me.

Look ma, no hands!

I totally did this today.

...except it was with my beer gut.

MV study girl part DONE

I didn't know how far I was going to take this when I started.

Cleaning up was bit tough but it really made me think about volume and arc.
When animation is in rough, it's too easy to make things smooth with moving lines, but when it's cleaned up, everything needs to be spot on. With this piece, I ran into some trouble with her right arm and took me awhile to get it passable.

Overall, it was a good learning experience. Will definitely do another short, cleaned up animation again.
Maybe with Toon Boom next time.

Now, time for sleep.

MV study girl

I should be sleeping but I had to sketch this out once I saw it on a Music Video.

The rough is done. Youtube made it little choppier than it actually is.
I'll clean it up like below image bit by bit.

update: Here is a link to the said video:

Perhaps I've exaggerated the head movement too much. It distracts from the hip. which is the real focus.

Alice Madness Returns

I played Alice Madness Returns over the weekend.
It had the best art direction I have seen in a video game in a while.

Super 8

This was going to be in colour but since I am so terrible at caricatures, the drawing part took forever. I'll finish it up with colour tomorrow.

DBL archive

This is something I wanted to do for time for the anniversary of the film and put it to rest.
I mainly made it so I can keep track of which festivals I submitted it to.

There isn't much on there yet, I might expand upon it.
I'll definitely fill out the FAQ section to answer questions some people were having.
It won't have any depth to be a tutorial since there are plenty of great resources out there.

Not sure if I used the black correctly. I just went with gut feeling.

Update: Process shots for future reference.
