HB Doodles and Toonboom Study

We are upgrading our toonboom animation skills.

I have the guys doing some walk cycles, head actions and dialogue using some of these drawings.













I'll share them when we have made some advances.

It would be great if could post this dialogues so we could practice too.

Sara, Toonboom is fairly easy to use and certainly no more difficult then any other digital program. Just do the (FREE) tutorials on the TB website, take notes, and you'll be good to go! That's how I learned! That and a combination of trial and error lol.

I did a great digitally inked clean up of one of those Huckleberry Hound doodles on toonboom.

judy jetson is my fav cartoon character. their is a thousand subtle changes you can do to her design but still retain the feel of her character. John draws her hair different every time. i love how John sometimes draws george and jane in a negative two faced manner that contrasts with judy drawn as simply cute and pure. I always wanted her to have her own cartoon where she is like a teenage robot superhero but idk if john would approve of that idea.

Your antenna-butt George has just made my day.

Here is my humble atempt Your Text Here.

How many hours should take to finish a walk cycle using the same "limited" style used on the Huckleberry Hound you posted on Facebook? I want to see how long will take me to animate Fred.

The elfish George Jetson, in an after-shave version.

It's all about the Schnozz.
Wish I could see a JohnK drawing of Jimmy Durante.

Hey John, thanks for the doodles you made of the HB characters, all in your style. If only Ed, Dick, Bill, and Joe could see you now.

Ed=Ed Bennedict
Dick=Richard "Dick" Bickenbach
Bill= William "Bill" Hanna
Joe= Joseph "Joe" Barbera

Someday, I'll copy all your doodles.

Your friend and protege,
Polyvios Christoforos

Hey Jon, how much do you generally charge for commissions? Anyway I could e-mail you about a project I have in mind? Thanks!

EY JK! Ren and Stimpy is the best cartoon ever!! Capische!?!?

peter dylst said...

dear mr kricfalusi. I just recently discovered your fantastic blog. You so generously and honestly share your advice with the rest of us! It's amazing how you always believed in how a cartoon should look like and actually made it all happen. May i say i have always been a huge fan of ren and stimpy cartoons and that they blew away everything that was current at that time (and still do..). I hope you will accept me to this blog so i can give comments to various subjects. If you check out my blog there's nothing on there because i just had to make it in order to be able to comment here. I am currently in the proces of reviving my long lost love of drawing comics and trying to make a short animation while i'm at it. But i noticed when i actually started making one, i still had a lot to learn. Sure, i always had a talent to draw well constructed and appealing but knew nothing about acting, staging, painting backgrounds etc.. And that is how i stumbled upon this blog and the info here is just amazing. You are just an amazing guy for sharing all of this with the rest of the world!! Oh yeah i am not retarded, i just live in belgium. Hope to get accepted!! Byee
