Hey John, I was wondering if you could give more info on the way you use Harmony, and the process. Also, I´m wondering how you work on the sound part, since it pretty much sets a lot of your timming later.
I saw the WIP of the new George Liquor stuff and was trying to figure some things:
-The 3D cans, were playholders to trace later or are you gonna integrate 2d and 3d stuff?
-Do you use symbols? How is your approach? Say, do you use a symbol for the mouth, a symbol for the eyes, eyebrows, pupils, etc? or you just separate a few of your character parts into layers (say for example, body, arm, jaw) into layers and just traditionally animate those using construction first and then doing the final art on top? Is there some rule of thumb here or something?
-I´ve notice in the rough scenes some motion tween of certain static parts (heads, hands), do you use this just for ref of the main movement, or you make a symbol out of that part and do the other frames later using that main movment?
-Do you ever use the vector primitives that come with the program, the circle, the lines, etc? or you just use the brush tool?

Well, those are a lot of questions, I´d just really love to see a speed up video of the process or something.

what a deal! Those caricatures are amazing! Thanks for sharing them! Here is a treat you may enjoy. It is a pin up of the flintstones's painted by your man Mel Crawford. I found it at a local flea market. It's in this post.

John I thought of you today when in animation class at my art college we watched Red Hot Riding Hood and when it was finished the teacher had us discuss the "negative gender stereotyping" like the wolf viewing red hot as a sex object and the "offensive" wolf suicide at the end. I'm sure you would've agreed with my teacher haha

LOL John, very cool site! Used to love watching Ren and Stimpy after high school got out.

You could make Ren and Stimpy movie fan art.

Like aliens, you could draw ren poking out of stimpy's stomach like the aliens do, and sigourney rolling her eyes.

Do all the popular movies!

John. Do you still accept character design criticism?

I attempted to construct an cartoon dog using classic animation principals.

Hey, John, have you ever seen the works of Arin Hanson? He never graduated highschool, but somehow is one of the best cartoonests out there. It's probablly because he didn't learn anyone elses's techniques, but made up his own.

OK. Pardon the off-topic post ... but has anyone noticed that R. Crumb responded to the Charlie Hebdo massacre by posting "The Hairy Ass of Mohammed" -- and in fine print clarifying that it's the nether region of "Mohamid Bakshi." Ain't sure how Ralph Bakshi's going to take that ...
