Sully the Wicked Awsome Squirell

Here are some drawings of my character, Sully the Wicked Awesome Squirrel. He is the masshole version of Bugs Bunny or Screwy Squirrel. He lives in a tree on outside of Fenway Park. Someday I hope to have the skills to have him star in animated cartoons.This Yankees fan rat is Sully's mortal enemy. I envision the cartoon basically being him and Sully beating the crap out of each other. The Rat is bigger and stronger but Sully is faster and smarter, so he wins out in the end. I've also been working on designs for Sully's best friend, an alcoholic duck. I dream of someday seeing Sully on the jumbo-screen at Fenway.Here is Sully giving Yankee's manager Joe Torre a wedgie. Ever notice how Joe Torre's nose looks like an ass in the middle of his face? This would be so much sweeter if the Sox had knocked the Yankees out of the play-off.

Ps. Sully and the Yankees fan rat are copyright of me. Oh yeah, and the Yankees Suck!

$100,000 Drawing Course - Lesson 5 - Final

ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive: Meta: The $100,000 Animation Drawing Course- Lesson 5

Here are the my final drawings of lesson 5. I checked and corrected these drawings as I went. Line of action is a deceptively simple concept. I've known of the concept for a long time and have been using it in my own cartoons. In this lesson I got a feel for how important a strong line of action really is. Next, moving on to lesson 6.

$100,000 Drawing Course Lesson 5 - First Attempt

ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive: Meta: The $100,000 Animation Drawing Course- Lesson 5

Here is my first attempt at lesson 5. Some of these are close, others are way off. The key is clear. If the line of action is right the rest should fall into place. On the next attempt, I will check the line of action before doing the drawing. I have decided to postpone the inbetweening lesson until I finish the $100,00 Drawing Course

Bosko's Dance!

Here it is. Finally cleaned up and inked Bosko dance. It is the most technically sound animation I have ever done, and I'm pretty happy with it. One problem I have is the drawings are kinda jumpy. I looked at the peg holes in the scan and they move around. To solve this problem I'll need to find a way to scan the drawings while on pegs. I think I'll be able to build something to hold the scanner I can glue a pegbar to. Anyway, my next project will be this inbetweening tutorial I found.
