JODIE RIG More WIP

I always like posting work in progress, it's weird but if I don't post on my blog I feel like I'm not doing anything. It's a way to track my productivity I guess.

I drew up a backview, and 2 more poses to pose out with the rig. There's something funny to me about sideviews in turnarounds. We NEVER use them, pretty much on any show I worked on...so why draw a sideview? That's why I am trying out to a Quarter View / Side View Hybrid instead.

JODIE RIG - DESIGN UPDATE

Some while ago I created a rig for a cartoon character inspired by the Mickey Shorts, the idea is to be able to do some cartoony animation at home since the show we currently work on is not really cartoony.

Jodie did some clean up on top of my original design, which I finally cleaned up and built in toonboom:




Below are some sketches in Photoshop

Toonboom Sketches

Some digital sketches I did in between animating at work, sometimes when the attention slips it's better to draw something, I think it re-engages my mind so I can focus better.

These days I try and draw on whatver I can find:

The back of some printed paper:
I don't get the chance to work at night at the moment, but I try and doodle whenever I can, just keep up the habit until I free up some time again.
