Up, up, up, and…

Not Superman, it’s Paper Man!

This is a Disney short that has been circling around in bits and pieces for a while. Now the complete cartoon is available online, and I seriously suggest everyone to check it out. I especially love how the texturing of the line work gives it that xeroxed drawing feel that 101 Dalmatians, Aristcats, and others from the late 60s had. It’s a simple, sweet, well timed, planned out short, and if you didn’t know you’d swear it was from the Pixar side of the family. Some will say it’s a prime example of the “CalArts” approach to animation, but I think all that really matters is that it’s good. At least I think so.

Enjoy— while it lasts. You know the Mouse, they’ll pull it, and put it back in their “vault” in no time. Another great steal from Cartoon Brew.

The finals are online over at JoeReloaded.com, so I thought I’d post the original pencils for it here. Enjoy.

It’s been a bit, so here’s a few life drawings.

First sketch of the night, was a little rushed, so the face didn’t get the love it needed, and the feet are just sort of plopped in there.


I’ve been trying to get more comfortable with inking over a loose drawing and I figured life drawing is on such a tight deadline, that it would force me to pick up the pace.



This pose got hit twice, but back shots like this lack detail so they’re a little quicker to crank out. Here it is on white…



But here’s an almost identical pose on brown paper. I find it interesting how just that one thing can change the over all feel of the image and adds a life to it. I don’t think it’s because of the color, but rather just the levels.



Then two last ones on brown paper. First time out, ran out of time, so I didn’t get to hit it with the ink as much as I wanted.



Sorry Gonz, ran out of time- so no feet. You can give me a hard time while I’m punching you during Krav. ;¬P
