Very cool. I get this feeling that you were inspired by the Asterix artist, Albert Uderzo. I would have loved to have seen this cartoon made.

Jim Smith said...

Maybe but not on purpose. I was thinking Tytla, Wood and maybe Frazetta, but thanks for that.

So do you actually color on top of John's sketch or do you completely render a new drawing with marker based on something?

Also, what are your fave markers to use?

- trevor.

John did a thumbnail and I made a drawing from that. My favorite markers are Chartpak - big fat juicy ones can do painting effects on animation paper. Blending is good on paper too but tricky. I hope to do a chapter in my book about markers.

When's that book coming out Jim?

Jim Smith said...

Jon it hasn't been written so were talking 2011? Hopefully.

Weirdo said...

You're welcome Jim. I hope you do get that book written and published. The world needs to know how to produce cartoons of intense manliness.

Nice marker rendering.

Jim Smith said...

Just keep in mind John K. did the original sketch so my vision was secondary to the process

RooniMan said...

I realize that.
