Here's a nice inking job by Harmke.
And here are some random things I found while searching for things to blog about.
Terrytoons are interesting. It's supposedly the bargain basement low budget studio from the golden age, but they fully animated everything and they loved crowd scenes. None of that is cheap. Where they skimped maybe is in the cleanup and inking. The finished drawings are often sloppy, but under the clean up is still a good drawing. They also must have thought sound effects were a needless luxury so they used the same 5 over and over again.
I wonder why it never dawned on Paul Terry to do limited animation. Thank God it didn't!
I forget where I found this nifty indian kid model sheet. It's very Bluthy and very well drawn. It'd be nice to see this kind of great technical ability in other styles. If you know who did this, let me know so I can credit it! I could analyze the crap out of how good these drawings are but am taking it easy this weekend. It has all the principles I love.
Craig Marin sent me this picture of a lovable old time puppet.
