Lesson 4: 2 legged Characters UPDATE 2





Update:6-23-06
The Jerry mouse is from an Ising cartoon, and one of the earlier models. I dont think it's as appealing as the H+B ones, but I thought it was such a great pose that I desided to draw it.

I goofed the legs on the chipmunk looking thing, because I just couldnt immagine how the shape was supposed to go. Anyhow Thanks for taking a look at it guys.

Hey guys its been a few weeks since I posted new pics. I've been super busy at work. I picked up some new animation tricks and have used what I've gathered from the PB Lessons, and they've helped me a ton. I discovered a trick that allows me ot spend more time tweaking the movement frame by frame to produce more appealing arcs and follow through. Anyhow, Here are some drawings I did last night. I'll try to do more today, but I have a ton of riggig to do for a super squash and stretch 3d character for the Strut Your Reel community. We are shooting for H+B style stuff like Tom and Jerry.
Anyhow C&c's are welcome.

PS These are all paper drawings. I mostly use my tablet for 3d, now that I figured out how to use the stylus to maipulate the 3d camera.

Craig,
hey man,
Well not the characters themselves, but tricks like shilloutting, and line of action are helping a ton. I'm actually shocked how much cleaner my animations are comming out, now that I've done some PB drawings.

Not only that, but when I draw before I play a multiplayer video game, I kick more ass. The lessons help more then just our drawing skills;)

The bear looks really nice. The others work well, but the necks are kinda long :)

Good to see you're still at it. I've been slowly slogging my way through those Tom & Jerry model sheets from lesson 7.

Keep up the good work!
