This was going to be a cool down sketch but then I looked at the clock... I think I’ll keep drawing for a few more hours! The night is young! .

For today’s warm up I wanted to pretend I was a #disney animator and my job was to inbetween this little scene in Tarzan. So I grabbed a couple of frames from the film and got to work. Trying to uphold Disney standards and style, I tried to think how a Disney animator would tackle this. Only 12 frames in l’ve learned how difficult subtle acting can be and how easy it is to over animate. So far, what I would say I’ve learned is keep it simple! Still not quite done but it’s time to finish other projects. Maybe I’ll revisit this scene later on. Happy animating! .

Warm up sketches from this morning. It's always fun to see what comes out when you cut loose for a couple warm up sketches before getting to work. I think I might play around with this design a little more in the future. Needs some work but has some great character. Well, off to animate! Happy Friday everyone! .

But I’m hoping things will calm down by next week. Probably wont calm down, but it feels good to say that haha. Rest is for the wicked anyways. Enjoy these sketchbook doodles. Peace! .

Expressions for the main character “Vickie” from my up coming short film. Still keeping it rough and exploring little changes as I get to know her a little better. .

Character exploration from today of “Richard Frankenstein”, one of the characters in my up coming short film. Richard is a self employed mortician that works out of his home. He and his daughter “Vickie” have just moved in to the neighborhood and... you’ll have to find out! More designs and animation to come! .

I’m no background painter, but this is the starts to my background of my scene “Two Brothers” that I mentioned a few weeks ago. Still have some touch ups to do, then the animating of the fire flys and fog before I start animating the characters (two brothers). This will be the first shot of about 5. Just a therapeutic side project for fun. Still have lots of other things to work on. But everyone needs a mindless doodle project for nothing I think. .

I just found out that I’ll be able to spend the next year designing and animating a short film that I have kinda had on the back burner for awhile now! Super pumped to get started on this project and share this fun story with all of you! I’m sure you’ll see me posting a lot from the film as I get things going. So stay tuned! Anyways, here’s a few expressions I did today of the main character of the film “Vickie”. More to come 👍 PS! Still have an opening for my private one on one art/animation lessons that I do over skype if you need a little help/guidance and mentoring with art/social media marking your work or anything else! DM me for more information! .

Quick sketchbook scribble from my imagination. I need to get in the habit of using reference, but it’s honestly pretty relaxing to make up stuff and draw things incorrectly. .

So last night I watched some random video on YouTube about what sets a professional creative apart from an amateur and thought the video made some awesome points. It said the big difference didn’t have to do with fame, success or money but said the difference was that professionals can bring themselves to sit down and create when they don’t feel inspired. I think beginners think that professional artists have worked enough that they are creative all the time. But that’s 100% not true! I honestly feel like I’m in a creative funk/block everyday! But what makes the difference is having the self control to sit down and work anyways. Professionals know if they are working then inspiration will come. I wanted to share this sketchbook doodle because as I sat down to draw just now, I had no idea what I wanted to create. I know that I wanted to use my time to improve my drawing abilities but it didn’t know what to draw! After scratching around a little, this guy appeared. Not the best sketch, I see a lot about it that I wouldn’t consider “correct”. But I created something that I can now use as reference for an even better drawing! So I guess what I’m saying is don’t wait for inspiration to hit. Get to work and get inspired along the way. ✍️👍.

For today’s warm up I wanted to study @kevinbparry ‘s work on Kubo in the moon beast scene. I thought it would be interesting to see how I would approach this stop motion scene in 2d. I think I’m in about 40 frames now and I’ve learned how much stronger and more life like your animation can look when you pay close attention to your secondary actions. Subtle secondary action or a little more extravagant, either way, the energy needs to flow. This exercise has also depended my already deep respect for the incredible work they are doing over at @laikastudios anyways, time to get to work ✍️🔥 .

In between projects and commissions I’ve been using my free time to develop a small scene that I’ll be designing, painting and animating. For those of you that saw my instagram story a few days ago saw one of the background paintings that will be used in the short. The story will be based on the relationship I have with my older brother Josh and how he has continually inspired me and pushed me to be a better person and creative. This is the design of my brother Josh’s character. More to come 👍
