Cool Cartoon Brew Article Featuring Aaron Blaise
Hello El Moochadores! Today I wanted to share a video about character design I found on Cartoon Brew, featuring veteran animator Aaron Blaise. I’m not going to spoil the article here (cartoon brew wrote it, you should read it there…), but both the article and video provide some pretty useful knowledge for those of us starting out in cartooning and animation. Not that I plan to do anything in animation, but I’m putting a lot more time into Atomic Tails and the Atomic Moo Comic Book. Finding web based resources like this video are a big help, especially since I have to struggle to find time to work on my comics. Also, when I started Atomic Tails, I honestly didn’t think of a lot of this stuff. I kind of just started drawing in what I hoped would look like a “Looney Tune-esq” style, and hoped it would evolve from there. I’m hoping that by studying this video and applying Blaise’s steps, I’ll improve the look of my characters. Also, Blaise is an incredible artist and it was just kind of cool watching him draw polar bears.
Anyways, I posted the video below, but click the link above to read the full article and gain more insight into the seven step process. I’m actually putting some of this into practice and hopefully later this week I’ll be able to post some of my results. ‘gonna draw a lot mice.
