Huray! sketchbooks are back! You never know how much you will miss something until it's gone.
Triplaneta - thanks so much
SpaceJelly, - those are done with a cintiq - about 2 years ago I switched from an Intuos 3 to the HD24 - both are fantastic.
V3T - thank you

Iven - until this week I just did a bit of breaking which is purely technical. This week I started animating FX. - not really much to say on my 'approach'. Working in studio is all about bringing the directors dreams to life. With FX I just try to make things that really sell the scene. The characters are the star - my FX are meant to emphasize their story and sell their story. If someone looks at my scene and says- woah that girl punches like Tyson - I'm doing it right- if they say - woah that dust and sparks look cool I'm not getting the right effect.
The7Artist7 - Thanks
Flashback - Hiya - Just got back from Vacation so I'm doing awesome. The picture was for Facebook, so the muddy bit is where the picture overlays.
Back from NFLD, Here's a montage from my sketches.

Wow I love your style! Are those pens, colored pencils or simply digital? It kind makes me wanna go sketch in blue and red now lol!
love your lines much respect bro
Your animated stuff looks wonderful, very gestural! =]
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
Niquey - Thanks - almost all my paper sketches are done in cheap ballpoint bic pens. I like them because they act a lot like a pencil without the distraction of erasing .
p sage, - I am an animator right now I'm doing 2D FX
Freshfool, Aburnier, Harmageddon, ancientdrake, V3T, - Thanks folks
Not a huge post- been lost in games >.>

Nice update. I'm really diggin the expressions as well. You can really feel there character leaking through. I'm also loving that gooey monster at the bottom most left there! I dunno, I just wanna hug it!!! 8D
Yayy your sketchbook is back too!!! Hope you had a nice vacation. For a while I still couldn't see your sketchbook along with some others, but then few other sketchbooks seem to load. Weird problem... really hope that it doesn't happen again :/
Love your new updates!!! I like how on the plants/tress you tried different styles of leafs, that's an great idea. Those figure sketches are always like eye-candy for me Awesome stuff as always.
Niquey - thanks - one day I have to animate one of those goo monsters.
Cabbage Caterpillar - Vacation was amazing it's always good to get back home. I've been geeking out about trees lately- they're so fun.
p sage - I have never heard of TV Paint 10. Adobe flash and Toonboom Harmony are the most prevalent in the industry. Toonboom also has a program called Animate pro which is in the same cost range as TV paint - and what I have on my home work station. Harmony is quickly becoming the favorite for higher budget 2D, and series work. Flash is cheaper, and has a really big market for indi stuff, games, and still has a strong foothold in the tv industry. I would recommend one of those.
some doodles as I catch up on tv
Cool new sketches, BTW!
Thanks for the info on the Toonboom products. I checked out their product pages (for Harmony and Animate Pro), and they looked pretty slick. I will look into those.p sage - I have never heard of TV Paint 10. Adobe flash and Toonboom Harmony are the most prevalent in the industry.

TV Paint Animation Pro 10 is bitmap/raster based, unlike Flash (and I'm assuming ToonBoom is also vector?). It's from a small company out of France. Some of the stuff done in it has looked pretty good.
A couple of examples

p sage- The trouble with samples from software is a pro can make anything look awesome. Adam and Dog, for example was done on paper as much as in the software. Toonboom has power houses like Princess and the Frog, or The Triplets of Belville, and Flash has Adam Phillips earlier stuff like Brackenwood, and a french show called WakFu. A good animator can make anything look good. Lotte Reiniger worked with cardboard.
If you're looking to get into the industry I recommend doing some research on your area. What's the job market like, what software do they look for? Here in Toronto the big names are Harmony, Flash, After effects, or Maya. I do know animators who have been hired based on the quality of their work without knowing the software, to be trained on the job, but they usually have 4+ years of studio experience.
If you're just trying to learn how to animate, any software with decent drawing tools and a timeline will do.
Toonboom is Vector, but the drawing tools are much better than flash. You can get learning or trial versions of a few different programs and see what works best for you.
Niquey - Thanks I make it a point to branch out as much as I can. I always keep an eye out for new and interesting artists. I also look for photographers, check out fashion stuff, different movies and shows. Being able to adapt to different styles and match different designers makes it easier to apply to a wide variety of jobs. Plus, I just like everything haha. My shelf has everything from Tankgirl, Stephen silver, Disney stuff, Etherington brothers, Bridgeman, Hale, Miyazaki, architectural books, alien stuff - How am I supposed to choose one thing... there's too many cool things
Great drawings again!
And I hear you on the "it's not the tool, it's the artist" thing, believe me. I just wondered if you'd heard of TVP. One of the things I would be interested in is faster workflow than the old pegs & paper method... and I like not having to deal with splines and beziers. Most of my work will be independent projects anyway, not really looking for a job in the industry. Thanks for the insights.
really great sb. Large variety, and one of the few more stylized artists. Keep it up.
More great variety of styles! I love it! I think it's cool how you can draw in a particular style consistently and then switch when you want. I love lots of different styles too, but I guess my problem is I often switch between them involuntarily! It becomes the most irritating when I'm trying to do a series. *face palm* But I suppose it's just one of those things that come with time.
Here's another question: Do you ever use references for any of these, or are they all from imagination?

Love your Sketchbook!! :p
Somehow what's jumping out at me is the little red tree in #756 with the geometric snaking leaves. That's a cool idea. I have to steal that. I dunno why it seems so awesome. I feel like a stoner looking at something he doesn't understand. Your tree drawing is making me trip balls for no reason, thanks!

Thanks for the help. I always have trouble with making boxes twist, or sphere that have seem to have form, having compression in foreshortening, etc. (And explanations that don't seem forced). The animation software that I'm using on the alpha stages, so it's missing a few things.
I looove flash, I was really inspired by joecartoon and mistercoo, Adam Phillips inspired me too butToonboom is Vector, but the drawing tools are much better than flash. You can get learning or trial
versions of a few different programs and see what works best for you.
I could identify more with JOE and COO. They made me a flash animator. You can buy JOECARTOON even
in Germany, Offenburg. Thats like Blackforest area, I think he made it !
I wonder, can you export jpg from TOONBOOM in 300dpi, or even make a website!
With flash I can do all that thats why I never tried TOONBOOM, cause its limited
to just do animation!
THAT REALLY make me think again that I really need a tablet PC for FLASH, if I travel. If you
guys can tell me any brand which you are working from I might would buy that to be able to
draw in flash on the GO !
I remember you mentioned one tabletPC Rhubix !
Ps.: Anyway, one of my favorite songs for you from JOECARTOOOOOON, have fuuuun !
