I was gonna be lazy and think about things more. But then I read some tweets from Ryan Pequin and Meredith Gran about how you should stop worrying about developing characters and just start a story already. They inspired me to do just that. Exciting! Will I keep it up? Can I do it? I don’t know. But it’s fun so whatever. I haven’t figured some things out but I will as I go.

something I’m working on. it won’t look like this much when I’m finished. I just felt like celebrating Hellboy Day. Mignola and Stewart are huge inspirations when it comes to how I approach colors and light.

during that mental transition, when you tell yourself “I’m an artist,” you realize that the people you look up to are all probably huge dorks. and it’s comforting.

r3myte asked: Hello, I was curious what do you use to do the animation ? Are you doing a frame by frame or do you use something like flash ? Very cool


Answer:

hello!

I use photoshop CS6.┬áit’s frame by frame. mainly this video has been really helpful as far as photoshop animating goes.

(notes: I went with the video layer method. the pupil is just a layer separate from the girl I was drawing.)

sometimes when I’m drawing, I keep the pupils on another layer and play around with them. I usually just drag the layer but lately I’ve been learning animation.

I like how it can be read both ways too. like a welcome error I don’t mind being an intention. I feel like it would be fun. the designer in me is saying that’s a bad excuse for a design flaw, but the cool teen artist in me is like “whatever man it’s 2014” and is loitering somewhere with an overflowing slurpee. still much to think about!
