I bought some color pencils, a 36 set from the drugstore, like for kids.

Bird wing test. I made this quickly this morning at my animation job. I think I’ll use this as a mockup storyboard of sorts for a bird that I made last week in After Effects.

I stopped drawing-drawing six months ago, I should start drawing-drawing again.

This is one of the last larger paintings I made before I stopped. 

This is also hanging up in my wife’s office.

I haven’t been posting anything lately. I’m just in the middle of so many things right now.

I was trying to think of something I’ve made lately and there really isn’t much. Or like nothing that would fit on this tumblr, but I did make this the other day. I got a new stylus and it’s got an ultra fine point, so I can draw in a fairly accurate way on my phone.

I’ve never had a smartphone before, and my wife and I just got iPhones a few weeks ago. They’re so much fun!

Turns out they have an iMovie app for it, so I took these 2 little short sketch animations that I made (also on the iPhone) and put them together with some music.

This is such a fun thing! I think I’ll try to make a full sketch cartoon all on the phone with my finger!

This is an abandoned animation project I was working on. I like it, and the direction it was going in, but at the point where it ends is where I was given my first official project at the 42, my morning animation internship / freelance job. 

I ended up learning so many new things and techniques with the project for work that this shark video suddenly became ancient history.

Like I said, I like it, I storyboarded most of it, and I learned so much doing it, I may end up remaking it from scratch with all of the new things I’ve learned. 

On another note, I haven’t been doing much else other than learning Animation lately. However, I feel like in the next couple of months I’ll get back to my usual drawing, illustrating and all of the typical things I used to post on this tumblr. Thanks for sticking with me.
