You know when a drawing is working by how you can easily imagine it being animated. This is of course absolutely essential if the drawing is to be used for animation. Well, when I look at those JB and KG drawings, it's actually hard NOT to imagine them being animated. Those are some of the best doodles I have ever seen. They are worth double or even triple what Tenacious D is paying you to do these. Well done, sir.
i wanted a cintiq, but those things are freakin expensive.
These are great!It's like I've always said, "Pants are for suckers!"Are those weird feet on KG a product of avoiding twinning?Or are they simply the product of loose, cartoony drawing?
What a funny and dynamic poses... this looks fantastic! Is Mirage a vector drawing program or some kind of animation software like Flash (or more advanced)? I'm amazed with the line quality on these drawings, especially since you made them directly with graphic tablet. Wonderful stuf!
These drawings are hilarious! Ive seen this clip actually move its so amazing. when you buy the DVD make sure you freeze frame it there are sooo many funny surprises!Congrats Johnnie, and Copernicus for making amazing animation for us! Jessssssy
I was going to go anyway, trust me.I wonder why no one ever gives JB and KG shit for being gay in their short films, but raise hell when Ren and Stimpy are for the most part, merely being suggestive.Those drawings rock. You animating stuff for any other bands sometime soon? It'd be cool to see your take on GWAR.
You bet your bottom dollar I'll be going. The main thing that they do is to rock my socks off.
nice inked lines! how'd they do it in Flash?
Looks great, John!
Those look great! I'm looking forward to seeing more.
i can't wait. i'mma bring a box of panties for the express purpose of chucking at the screen.
are these going to be in the Pick of Destiny movie? also i like to see their fat bellies covering the privates, but i like to see little genital bumps even more. since its animated already, maybe next time.
Wow. wow. Wow. I can't hardly wait!Love Tenacious D!
That an interesting nose theory you have on Jack there John. You can do better thn that. LOLMe and all my buds are eagerly waiting to see this movie a thousand times and secretly bring video recorders in with us. Also, did you design the pick of destiny?
Oh man I can't WAIT to see those babies moving!-Jordan
Hey John, I have a question for you. I noticed that you never really do much Satire comedy? Do you think that parodies are uncreative? I feel that anyone can do a parody, It's how clever can you be.
I LOVE the cartoon acting!!Especially in the last frame!This cartoon is the only thing that can make a tenacious D movie even better!And on the 7th day the Gods of Humor approved this most holy of collaberations, and it was good.
awesome...i've heard different things about Mirage, but these drawings are super clean! can't wait to see em animated.
>>Hey John, I have a question for you. I noticed that you never really do much Satire comedy? <<Hi Eric!Well, that's a suprising comment.I do quite a bit of satire and some parody (They are 2 different things).Elwy and The Tree WeaselsMan Man and Boy BoyRip Along With The Ripping FriendsUntamed WorldThe whole Ren and Stimpy Show is a satire of children's programming.etc.
>>awesome...i've heard different things about Mirage, but these drawings are super clean!<<Hi Ryan,The finished drawings you see are done in Flash, not in Mirage.Mirage isn't good for animation, but it has a good pencil tool.Maybe I'll post the rough drawings.
Hi John,My name is Troy, I co-founded ZAC Toons with a team of 5 creatives to create our own original cartoon series to be distributed via mobile, online and TV.Our company website, which is deliberately devoid of content, is www.zactoons.comI was hoping to contact you to discuss potentially working together on various projects.My email is firstname.lastname@example.orgI hope to hear from you.Best regards,Troy.
Hi JohnThat looks so cool. I would love to see that. So what is this? Is this going to be a feature movie or a DVD release or what?Jesse
Hey John,how much do you like mirage?how does it compare with other animation software?im contemplating buying it.
>>how much do you like mirage?how does it compare with other animation software?im contemplating buying it.<<It's not very useful. Spend 8 bucks and study the Preston Blair book from cover to cover. That money will do you a lot more good.
Great poses! I think I've fallen for their naked lil' genital-less bodies! I would have never thought Kyle could be so appealing, but somehow you took something fat and weird and made it beautiful! The way you conjure up these cute idiosyncratic designs is beyond me!
John, I'm so glad you're involved with the D. It's two of my favorite things collaborating together.
