I don’t like this and I don’t know when I picked it up, but every time I’m asked what I do for a living I pinch my right hand together like I’m holding some utensil and trace an “S” through the air while I say “I’m an animator.” I can’t help it now. #animation #animator #sketch #drawing #artist #professional #canthelpit
Batman’s 75th Anniversary!
Happy 75th you crazy old man. I don’t draw Batman often, but he’s obviously one of comic’s biggest icons so I had to make sure to do him justice… cause, ya know… Batman’s all about justice!
For those of you in the Chicago area this is going to be part of the Fulton Street Collective’s “Holy 75th Anniversary, Batman!” show on April 26th. More info HERE! The more the merrier! I’d love to see you guys stop by and say hi.
If you’ll allow me to plug just a bit more. You may recognize Tom there with the glasses, but I’ve done a couple sets of character designs for Long Winter Studios and a big part of that process is sketch-overs. Trying to infuse the CG models with some of my design sensibilities and ensuring the proportions and forms are nice and appealing. I really enjoy that part of it and the talented guys at Long Winter use my scribbles wonderfully and in the end I have a 3-Dimensional model of my drawing which truly must be some form of radical sorcery!
My buddy Andy at Long Winter has been featuring my sketch-overs on their Facebook page for about a week now and there are some unseen sketches over there if you’re interested. If you’re an animator you owe it to yourself to check out their rigs. They are top quality craftsmen and artists over there!
Here’s their Facebook page (where the art is.)
