Quick Studies and Costumes

A few quick drawings from yesterday. First, poses from the fabled Quick Studies workshop...

I also dropped by George Cwirko-Godycki's Clothed Figure class for a few minutes, and there was some pretty fun costume action going on!

More Mars Boards

Here's the next chunk of that storyboard sample. (Part 1 was over here). In this installment we have cheap conjuring tricks, newt-thievery, and butt-kicking.

Storyboards of Mars

One of the frustrating things about working on film projects is that they take years to complete, and until they come out, you can't show people what you've been working on. Since most of my previous animation storyboarding work is tied up in this fashion, I've been meaning to sit down and create some sample boards so I actually have something to put in my portfolio. So here goes!

In this sample, we catch up again with a couple of characters from my King of Mars story. This is the start of what's probably going to be a 200-board scene. The newt-cooking sequence kind of took on a weird life of its own...

Inking Demos: Oz and Tortoise

It's wacky inking demo time again! These each took about 30-40 minutes, with some ink wash and spatter and such. I didn't end up finger-painting this time, but you can't have everything.

This is, of course, a composite Wizard of Oz companion character made up of part Scarecrow, part Lion, and part Tin Man. He's having some trouble deciding what to ask the Wizard for.

And this, on the other hand, is what you get when you ask your students for subject prompts.

Odds and Ends

Clearing out the metaphorical basement, I present for your diversion and amusement...

A complete lineup of the Mu Gundam robots so far. All to scale, naturally; man, the Kingdam is really huge.

A silly inking demo for my comics class.

Another silly inking demo. Next week I'll be demonstrating ink wash, spatter, finger-painting, etc, which is always fun; plus, that means I'll probably have time to actually finish the illustrations.
