Oh James...

Another ABB "Bond's Worst Nightmare". My Bond looks suspiciously like Fallout's vault boy...

Didn't know Photoshop could do animated gifs, so I wanted to give it a try. Pretty neat, albeit really unwieldly when it comes to timing. I have a pretty good feel for how long frames last. But 0.2 of a second... no idea. Their choice of interface doesn't help. Turns out that it runs at different speeds on different browsers too. BUT!! It's awesome for short and simple gifs. I'll definitely be doing this more often.
The doodle concept.

Sticky fingers. Ahhhhhhh!
Another one for ABB; "The thing(s) that scare you most". While I'm not scared of this, I don't really like getting gunky. I need to psyche myself up before I dive into ribs and the like :| .

(yes yes, I know his arm is hella long - that's what happens when you draw without thinking)

Zombie Hatter Guy

 Still trying to get comfortable with Painter. Having a bit more fun now though.
WIPy stuff. The one on the left was originally blue line, and much MUCH lighter. Had to fiddle to make it visible at all. I don't like doing a second pass on a new sheet; animation or not, so I go over top, then strip out the blue with Photoshop. Nifty stuff. And stroke is awesome.

I noticed I treat drawing differently between animation and illustration. I really should start approaching these as I would a key.

I missed a bit on the expression I was going for, I'll try again later. Ah, Charmander. I started with Yellow, so I got all the starters. Perhaps I'll draw some more 'mons later.
