Sketchbook: Bangs & Ice Cream

Here’s a little sketch of Bangs sitting down next to Ice Cream. I’ll be drawing the Bangs comic for the July issue of Sundae Magazine rather soon. The July issue will also feature interviews with Wavves and Best Coast (just interviewed Bethany yesterday!), so get excited, people!

raz rough walk cycle

So I usually do my animation in After Effects, parenting different layers to each other, animating their transparencies, positions, scales and rotations – stuff like that. However, I’m messing around with some more traditional techniques this week, and my first experiment is making a RAD RAZ walk cycle.

This is really rough: it’s basically my very first sketches un-edited. Naturally, I will be doing some heavy clean-up on this, as well as drawing the in-between frames, but here are the main key frames in super rough format.

I live with 2 chihuahuas, one of which is 14, while the other is probably 2 (she’s a rescue dog). I had a half day at work, so after a short nap on the couch with the dogs, I drew a couple chihuahuas.

Wanna get a better look? See close-ups after the jump! Continue reading

Sketchbook: Bangs

Here’s another sketch I did of that Bangs character. I’m really digging her – think I’ll keep messing around with the design.

Also, thank you whoever put my Richard Dunn sketch up on StumbleUpon (although why didn’t you go for the colorized version?) I’ve had a steady stream of viewers from that today.

Also, you will be happy to know that people continue finding my blog by searching for “bacon drawing” (or similar phrases related to bacon and drawing). Literally every day for the past couple days someone has reached my site via bacon related search.
