Lifelong artist in animation and cartooning.
I specialize in animals, animation, character design, doodling, drawing, pen and ink, pencil drawing.
I began drawing this cartoon dog's front foot and I scored a near perfect image in relation to the classic cartoons of the 1960s-70s. Felt like a champion that day last week in that I knew how to coordinate my entire hand like the animators did in the mid-century studios.
This is the ear belonging to the character named Brooklyn from popular 1990s series Gargoyles that made debut in 1994. He is the teenaged-brained, crimson red, big-metal haired and lackadaisical tempered junior Garg about 20 years younger than their clan leader (Goliath). The ear is being twisted backward away from jawline upwards direction.
This is the tip of a weasel's nose or other Mustelidae creature. I finally have achieve the animator lines I've always wanted just last month.
Great pencil shot of an anime inspired left-eye on some creature I didn't character design. I was thinking of the way the lines flow on cel sheets when they are printed on to it and this subconsciously controlled my hand in creating an excellent imitation of one.
This is a mouth of the red, beaked gargoyle named Brooklyn from the Disney Afternoon series. It's just a copy drawing done by mental calculation, and the reference is to be found here (https://www.cap-that.com/gargoyles/108/index.php?image=gargoyles1x08_0551.jpg)
This front foot is drawn after the animation in one of the best animated films of all time Balto (1995). A simple construct, but when you try to guess the angles of lines to correct form it's easy to lose focus and fail again.
Fast pencil drawing of a dog's front leg in motion trying to stop. Each digit is flayed out like in a real action sequence.
A dog's ear leaning forwards. The bottom lines aren't finished and both corners are not connected. Left one goes inwards then ceases. Right side is longer and touches the opening of the canal.
A real life demon cat that would be like the size of a hippos or something.
Very simple lines for one character face. It's enough that it still has a "life" in a whole presence of itself. The features would be a Loony Tunes look and inspiration.
Drawing of a set of thick teeth on corner of sketchpage. They are the non-perfect type, crooked and chunky.
Gel ink sketch of a kitten with a UniBall pen.
This is most likely Simba as I had him in mind when I tried a shot at drawing an outline sketch of his head. It's done in a Modernist style, mid-twentieth century strokes of design you see in high class magazines that still do this kind of art. His mouth is not completely attached to his jawline. That makes for a nice flair, an animated kind of dynamic result. The ears are loosened from the head and take a vitalized look of their own.
A real life sketch that wasn't expected to come about in another sketch and line practice. This time I got something higher in quality, an Audubon rendering of something you'd find in a bird manual about the life of avian development and the like.
Garfield's foot one day popped up in my sketchpad. Not that special, but it came out with a 3d effect and fully formed. It just seems so awesome not to miss up.
Here's Carmen, coming from the syndicated, politically-motivated newspaper strip comic Prickly City. The whole artistic makeup of PC seems like it would appeal just exclusively to kids, but all they talk about (and joke) about is nasty adult behavior not likely appropriate for little minds. I drew Carmen from top-down, pushing upwards with her fingers + hands at a glass ceiling, those limbs unfinished except little pentagons that represent her finger tips. No feet, they didn't get lucky enough to be included in sketchbook effort.
3d drawing is a special kid of mine. I never intended to develop it but did think about it on the side. I can harness it better than a full 2d line layout, weird fact. Here is a dog's huge brick of a nose, seen from a little top-down and front view. No character was intended to be designed behind it, I just use dog noses as figures for sketch practice.
A nice throw of lines of the back foot of an adult lion in TLK. The pencil used was a 2B. Please compare it to the lines of a professional who made a storyboard for the movie, here (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-K01X5efUBLI/UDz_gMfywiI/AAAAAAAAmqs/oJ8sZ9q2MV0/s1600/lion_king_concept_art_storyboard_01.jpg)
This was supposed to be a dog's nose, but I drew it at a time when I had less skill. It's top side has a spatial dimension that makes the bottom area having a full 3d effect. The shading goes from top down "into" what seems like below the surface of the paper itself. I do have a good talent for 3d drawing, and you'll be seeing more in the future.
This is an outline of the Looney Tunes cat. I didn't go further in finishing because at the time 6+ months ago I wasn't all shaped up to draw the lines for the face. He's tilted his head upward talking to somebody probably bigger than him.
A 3d drawing of big teeth in a flashy smile. I brought out the depth like it was constructed in a computer software format. This was done last summer.
