Hey John. Love your page. Long time lurker here. Just thought I would come out of the shadows for a moment and let you know. That's all. Carry on!!!

Jeri said...

Agreed. But experimentation is always good.

It's really bizzare to see you draw anime.

These look a hundred times better than my best tries, and infinitely better than the new "PictureKa" stuff:

And why would we discard these, exactly? :)

These are fantastic! Very very good! The poses are nice too. I quite like the drawings on sheet 3.

These are so cute and funny!!! I love that kind of combination!! Even when quick drawing in pen, you show a lot of talent!

Finally someone who can draw pretty girls with a sense of energy and have fun with it. Why this is don't happen in modern anything anymore?

Trey Brown said...

looks like all those balance mechanics studies you did have really payed off. everybody's standing nice and straight.

John, sorry about this being off topic but ever since I've started doing the construction lessons and practicing I can't seem to just go right in and doodle/sketch anymore. It's like my brain is hot-wired to plan out and construction things, which is alright, but sometimes it gets tedious especially when all I want is to be silly and doodle some girls.

Heeeelp, I don't know what to do!!

Erik B said...

That wolf looks funny!

Offtopic question:

What exactly where your first animations about John? I never really saw some of your early works.
What kind of animations did you make when you where still studying?

I am allmost done with my study and i
was just curious what you where doing at that time.

Those sketches are pretty adorable for the most part.

You have to love robotic wolves with ashtray cylinders for bodies.

Jeri said...

Hey franshawn. I learned a thing to do for this in drawing classes. I can't explain things well so here. http://bshelley.com/blog/?m=200911 Bottom of that page under movement and energy. Don't worry about what it looks like, don't take your pencil off the paper, and don't stop moving your hand. Really loosens you up. Do that for a while should unwire you :)

Also John, I was wonder if it was possible for you to post some of your high school/college/very old stuff if you haven't lost it. I was chatting with Miles Inada and he mentioned how he liked to see.. I forget; let's say the evolution of his favorite artist from their earliest work and so on. I'd really appreciate it if you could do so.

Yeah, let's see "Ted Bakes One"! (I think that's what it was called.....?)
