Hey guys! I have been doing a lot of drawing lately; designing for my friend Foster, storyboarding with my friend Eric, and I started a new art blog called The Weekly Sketchbook with my friends! Crazy fun. Check it out here. All of these drawings here are for that blog. And actually the last two drawings, if you haven't figured it out already, are essentially the same one. Using the animation desk that I showed you last time, that has a lightbox, I drew that first red one up, then turned the light on, drew the blue one, and turned the light off, finishing with the graphite one. Traditional animation stuff. Sounds complicated, but it isn't really, except that the red one is done a different sheet of paper than the blue and graphite one.
The first one is Bullwinkle. When I think 'Moose' I immediately thought of him. There is no more famous Moose character in television to date! I remember when my parents first showed me Rocky & Bullwinkle as a kid. Now, when I watch it, I am surprised at how little cartoon there actually is. But, an amazing show nonetheless. You can pretty much watch all of the episodes on Netflix streaming now... and what could make Bullwinkle more memorable than a funky coloring job? Exactly. That's why I did it.
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day everybody!
