The semester is over. And I have a nice update for you. Unless you suffer from coulrophobia, then I have a nasty update for you.
I have lots of trouble trying to use 2D animation software. I always feel like it looks too choppy and not nice and it has the bad habit of crashing on me. And then I rage quit. Which is wrong.
This time around I managed to keep fighting against it (otherwise I would have to wait a whole year to repeat the course again), and ended up enjoying it because of the character I chose: Stabby The Clown.
If you have seen Stephen King’s It, you know what kind of clown this is. Not particularly funny, but just amusing from a safe distance. Don’t leave him near your children.
Enjoy it, as next semester if I have any luck I’ll be facing Toon Boom, who killed my family and left me for dead in the desert.
I’ve been keeping a sketchbook that I like to call “the nice one”, for drawings with pencil and marker. I’m rather proud of it, but I’ve been insanely busy and hadn’t been able to scan much of it lately.
Most of the drawings are done with either copic markers or touch markers, which happen to be just as good as far as I can tell.
These three are kind of an idea circling my head about a Mad Max-ish story. I call the first one King and the lady with the dog are The Spikes.
These two were just experiments with shape and composition.
I happen to enjoy Michelle Rodriguez in Machete (and Machete Kills, where she “surprise cunt-punches” someone)
A sketch for my friend Jen Frankel’s short story. The Owl Woman is a superhero dealing with the death of a close friend.
A sketch titled “Ood in the ‘Hood” (for the whovians):
Some animals, just because.
I watched Beauty and The Beast (The Jean Cocteau version) and I had to sketch something out of it. It’s a really crazy movie.
A exploratory sketch of one of the characters in my webcomic.
And I don’t know how to categorize these ones…
