Model sheet






This turn-around sheet was for the Big Brother episode Ren & Stimpy, 1992. This is the last episode I worked on doing layout (and this model sheet, mostly drawn by John K.) The episode was finished by the other guys.

So Kowalski's got a plane in the front of his head? I never knew that. I guess that's a better way to hang the secondary features and details on his face. The sideways butt chin is great too!

His shapes, especially his body, remind me of an exaggerated Avery Uncle Tom with more emphasis on the weight in his belly, but they still maintain a balance and hierarchy.

I love seeing all this stuff! Thanks for sharing it.

Good Ol' Kowalski.

You knew that JoJo! After all the knowledge I've shared with you, I slave and study to help you and how do you repay me? Drop and give me 20 mister! Actually good comment, and thanks for noticing.

Niki said...

This is pretty disturbing for me, now it feels like there's so much I'm missing.

Jim Smith said...

For future reference: There are planes on every surface of the face even on the rest of the body too but more subtle.Look at your friends real close until it gets uncomfortable.

JoJo said...

Yes sir!

Such a hilarious character design. Thanks for posting these amazing drawings!

Shaun said...

Who designed Kowalski?
He was always one of my favorites.

Jim Smith said...

I would like to think I had something to do with the design but John usually slapped me into line with all the precision and clarity.

those are awesome.

ArtF said...

Awesome, Jim! such weight and mass in your drawings! superb!

Notice the familiarity between the Predator and Kowalski. They are not in great shape but still powerful. Predator is the marine version of Kowalski.

I have watched some youtube versions of Fake Dad but it was a video made by someone using the animation and adding new music. I couldn't find the episode itself, probably have to get the dvd.

You didn't get a free copy? In a gift basket?? FILLED WITH PEACHES???




What's wrong with the world?

Jim Smith said...

Thanks Zoran. I gave away my copies for gifts, that's just the kind of guy I am - a moron.
