Damn, I’ve been dead busy with playing fancy dressing and drinking (for the live action of the film, obviously – well mainly) that I forgot to post last week!
Anyway there is much more black on the character now, and shading takes twice longer… If you want to start a 2d film, hand drawn, here’s an advice, make everything white! Damn that black T-Shirt is killing me.
So you can forgive me, here’s a little GIF, the walking drunk (it’s not the shot that caused me lots of pain):
Last week was a bit slow, mainly due to the fact that I spend 5 hours colouring A THIRD of an A3 in red. Using a O.4 mm pen…
Bloody Diner sits. It felt like Math lessons all over again!
Anyway, I’m one background behind, I will catch up somehow this week.
Mooe sent me the first draft of here Harry Nilsson’s “One” cover, and it’s brilliant,
I can’t wait for you to hear it!
Mean while listen to here other songs, HERE. They’re perfect for a monday morning. Or any other time!
This week plan is a bit serious… Apart from the thursday afternoon Old Fashioned Stroll.
I need to sort out a proper PLANING for the backgrounds. I’ve finished 6 of them, out of 60 and I only have a few weeks to finish all of them.
I started by the hardest ones, yet I need a realistic schedule. Today starts the 9th week. It needs to get a bit more intense.
Any one care to Produce me?
The great news is that I am 20 Books away from adding 1 more month to the production! Making it a proper 6 month production.
Here is one of the new BackGrounds, a Motel Room:
Feel free to leave comments HERE
I’ve finished 3 backgrounds: a London Tube Station, a Diner and a Saloon so far.
And I need to start working faster now, I should draw at least another 4 Backgrounds this week.
I’ll need to take a day to set up the animation tools (Line test and animation table) and scan the final drawings.
The sales of the book have dramatically slowed down,
so I’m just dropping a few lines to remind you that you can help finance the film
by buying a Deadman’s Reach book HERE or by making your friends buy it!
And Here is the Diner:
You can let me know what you think of it, here.
