Porky Poses - Lesson 7 (Again)

Holy cow, drawing up my own poses is super fun. When I copy someone else's drawing, the funnest part is looking a pretty looking finished drawing, but when I make up my own the the whole process is fun (although more difficult and time consuming). At first I started scribbling some poses with a pen,
(you can check out the scribbles in this post) to get the good line of action, good proportions and a generally pleasing figure. Then I roughed out the proportions,bigger this time, and tried to iron out anything that was bugging me. Lastly I went over it in red and laid down the details. Cool huh!

Guess what director I was thinking about when I scribbled this one

Animation Sneak Peek

Right now, I'm working on a short animation, like only 30-45 secs long. But I wanted to share this sneak peek of some animation with the finished line work.


Tell me what you think, it might go by a little fast to read it all, but I had a heck of a time keeping up with the beat. I was doing lots of things to make it read better.

Here's the video on Youtube

Lesson 7 With P-P-Porky

Here is my Lesson 7 "When Generic Is A Good Thing", and seeing as how I've already studied Tom and Jerry, I wanted to draw some Warner Bros. I found some Porky pics on the internet to study for the first couple, and then I grabbed a bunch of screenshots from my copy of "Kitty Kornered," by Bob Clampett. Those were a lot of fun, especially since that is one of my favorite episodes, and one of my favorite directors. In the middle of this lesson, life got in the way and I had to postpone my lessons, but now I'mmmm bbbbaaaack.

Here was the long break from the lessons, but I think they are getting better than ever.

And here are all of the attempts

Tell me what you think, and I'd love to hear some critiques. The worst part about training your eye to see all of the little details, is my drawings are starting to look worse and worse to me (especially when put next to the original). But on their own the are starting to look pretty decent.
