Right now I'm hectically scanning my dope sheets (also known as X Sheets. It's an animation thing. Look it up.), the deadline is STILL Friday and I STILL have 2 complete scenes to animate - and at least three to go back over. AND I have to scan half my layouts (ie, about 100 bits of paper). Fuck.

But on a side note, I bring this:

Yes, he does look a little 'flamboyant', I'll admit. It was inspired partly by Henry Flint's work on the recent ABC Warriors strip in 2000AD, and partly by a recent visit by life drawing expert Janine Breaker. She taught Disney people how to draw, doncha know!

Anyway, I found the lessons and lectures she gave, if nothing else, forced us to look a lot harder at body construction, and angles and shit. Still..... more work to do! Scan scan scan!!

One Week Left

I've got that pic I was gonna post yesterday. But I'm keeping it for tomorrow. Instead I shall display one of my sketchier efforts. After all that fuss yesterday, the new Crack comic was up - but posted three times! I've sorted it now though. Thank fuck.

I REALLY shouldn't be doing this, as I have until Friday to finish my film and there's still quite a way to go. Oh, and Ben has just shown me this awesome flash cartoon about uses of the word 'Fuck'.

So anyways, here's todays derivative piece of shit.

What is this fresh hell?

Just as I finished a post on Crack Comics complaining about using fucking dial up, the blog turns around and refuses to publish my post. Nice.

I wanted to post a couple of pictures today, but I left the appropriate skecthbook under my lightbox at uni. So I'm using some crap from my new, partially-furbished sketchbook instead.

I'd just like to add that, at about 2am when I was up finishing the new crack comic, I head scuffling behind the wall. My mother had said previously she heard a rodent up there, but I protested that it was the birds nesting between the roof and wall (my bedroom is in the attic you see). Not long later, I look down, and what do I see? a little black mouse sniffing around the floor. I was gobsmacked, my only reaction being a startled cry of "What the fuck?!!", which startled him back into hiding. Or so I thought. I went to have a look, and he was still sitting under my desk. I chased him back into the hole from whence he came, somehwere behind said desk and comfy armchair. Bastard.

And at the moment, my mother decided to open up the sealed loft space behind my room to make a sort of junk cupborad, like the one that exists on the other side. This means that all my collected stuff had to be moved from the stairs to my already overcrowded room, leaving approximately 1.5 sq feet of floorspace. As opposed the the potential 36-ish. And now I have to clear the floor and lay poison and/or traps. Great.

I am so smart! S-M-R-T!

Hello my pretties. The new Batman comic is done.

Working Stuff

By about lunchtime, I should have a new Batman Crack Comic to go up on Crack Comics Ltd. , although I REALLY need to go and do some animation now in order to finish my film. Oh yeah, there is a new post up there by .357, 'tis very funny!

In the meantime, look at this quick coulour study I did for a background design project a couple of months ago.

Roads going through floaty hoops and things. You know?

Cool mun innit

By entering uni at the ridiculously early time of 8:20 am, I find I have enough time to scan and colour some comic strips. I start this at about 8:55, and am done by around 9:30 - by which time I am fully ready to tackle some serious animation. As opposed to my usual routine of turning up at 10 and doing nothing...

I must go now, and prepare the Riddler!
