I got some India ink and some proper dip pens. I’ve been on such a rough drawing kick lately. It’s so much fun to let your mind wonder and just to draw using ink and a pen. Definitely channeling some Searle vibes today. I urge everyone out there to switch up there style from time to time. You never know what cool results you will stumble upon.

Train sketching with markers is fun. When I’m stressed with work, drawing seems to take me away and reminds me why I love animation.

Today I noticed that the bumps that happened while drawing on the train gave my drawings a Ronald Searle look to them. So I kinda just ran with it. These were really fun. With such a bumpy ride you can’t help but to have a wobbly line. I think I might try some more of these.

Here is a little progress post. The bottom left is my terrible first try, then another rough sketch with a far more confident pose and finally my finished version at the top. Keep going and always work through those shitty first passes, that’s what its all about.

Some ruff baseball sketches that I have been playing around with. Partially  Inspired by some of Matt Jones’s life drawings.

Ok, time for one final concept post for “The Good Dinosaur”. I tried to do different painting techniques to achieve sort of an impressionistic look to the pieces. It was fun to do. I used Monet’s “Hay Stacks” as the inspiration for the first one. The second one was just a quick blocking colour key pass. And Kinda a cave painting meets Lion King idea for the third one haha. All in all I had a blast with this whole series. I learned a lot and I may have to try some other unrealeaed movies soon ;)

I just worked 4+ hours on a painting and somehow its became corrupted. UHHHHHHHHH So mad! How does that even happen?
