    Sketchasarus Rex- Rawr

    My first love is cartoons, but I dabble a bit in fine-arts to keep improving my overall drawing skills. (though, more recently neglect them - >.< )
    I studied Animation in college and I'm currently working as animator in Ontario.
    I try to update my sketchbook weekly - critics or advice are more than welcome, because learning!
    & I'm more than happy to answer questions or give advice to anyone interested in cartooning or animation.

    Unfortunately, because my sketchbook is old, a lot of the early images were lost in the great image loss problem. Drawings start at Page 36

    Happy sketching!

    Hi Joker,
    I have a 2D animation background. I went to school for 3 years and learned all the basics. At the end of my 3rd year I lucked into a fabulous internship where I learned how to break. I had a little bit taught to me at school but really most of my knowledge was gained at my first job.
    I'm a toonboom breaker- as opposed to a 3D rigger. I have studied Maya for about a year, and from what I can tell the pre-requisites for 3D rigging are hugely different from 2D.
    2D is like a visual problem solving game - k if I move this limb how do I make it look natural, filling in all the holes and squiggly weird bits that the movement produces.
    3D is alot more complected, with scripting, and blend shapes, and corrective driven blend shapes. Very scary

    In general for 2D animation drawing skills are super important. get as much life drawing, anatomy, and cartooning as you can. Get a copy of Richard Williams' 'The Animator's Survival Kit'
    You should also try to find versions of the animation programs your interested in. For 3D there are lots of downloadable free rigs to play with. If nothing else it will give you something to practice animating with to learn a little bit about timing and stuff.
    Just be stubborn and determined, and do lots of research and study you fundamentals.

    yay installment 3.
    This time some more thumb-nail studies from movies, lots of Lilo (I love that movie) a bit of snow white, and some assorted others.
    Bit of park/subway sketching, and more cartoony doodles. (no Liam unfortunately)

    I wanted to try and learn to paint metals so I've started painting some of my little creatures. I'm still too wimpy with my highlights and shadows.... Need to man up!
