So today we did a storyboard exercise and I really loved it. I pretty much had the idea down in 15 minutes, when we were given 2 hours. I had so much fun thinking up the idea, I really wanted to animate it. So for a summer project I might do just that; I was planning on learning some animation programs over summer anyway. I don’t really want to post it here yet, maybe you all will just have to see the finished product
Figure draws! These turned out ok. It’s really hard to see the white charcoal on newsprint.
Change of emotion animation for Ani 112A. A bit jerky at times, but with the crazy weekend I had, I think it turned out well.
Make sure to watch her short film! (link above)
THIS is how you use the flash animation program. By being exceptional FIRST. If you’re an amazing artist/animator, the FLASH program will not change that. If you’re mediocre & weak artist/animator, the FLASH program will not change that.
Just some characters I’ve made up in the past few months.
Here’s my cover for the just-announced trade paperback of Bravest Warriors Vol. 1. At first they just wanted to re-use my issue 1 cover but I was like “NO. That cover didn’t have enough HOT PINK.”
Then I holstered my gun and walked away from the phone. I think they got the message.
Oh man! I love this!

Man, this is exactly the kind of stuff I’m talking about when I mention value range! The Witch Doctor before and after page is a really good example of the importance of starting with a dark value and working up. The “before” is a pretty common result of working light to dark, or starting with a value that is too close to the middle of the value range. Everything looks kind of washed out, even when working with saturated colors, and lacks volume.
This is an amazing reference overall, gonna pour over the full PDF when I have a minute.
oooh this is really helpful!! i think i’ll make some minor coloring changes according to this, i think it’ll help a lot
This is a great resource; we took a long hard look at this before we developed our 3D art style at work. Very smart, very well laid out. A really crucial resource to anyone who needs to worry about readability at a distance.
It’s still kinda warm out too! :D
