Caricatures of Viborg


Hey friends and neighbors just got back from Viborg in Denmark. They have a school for animators and cartoonists, really nice, located on an old Danish army base. I was there a few weeks to teach, really just to advise and guide. My fellow teachers did the real teaching such as assignments, lecturing, and such. I mainly gave tips and pointers on drawing characters, composing shots, and storyboard mechanics. The class was for 2nd year students. The class was assigned to make a 30 second animated trailer for a well known live-action movie, using Maya. When they are done, I will post some on the blog or send a link. When I figure out how to unzip the files I will post some photos and caricatures of the students and some more goodies.

John Wayne in caricature, inked by John K. who is also a genius. Notice the thick and thin lines, and the sense of design. The pencil drawing had the elements but not as nicely arranged as in the inked version.
Try doing a cleanup or inking of someone's drawing, even a rough, and try to maintain the guts of the original. This is a good way to practice doing finished drawings.

Stooge Treasure

Front and back cover from a collection of Stooges comics from early "50s. Check out the contrast between realistic rendition or the artists and the cartoony style for the stories. Norman Mauer is the son in law of Moe. Beautiful stuff.

My friend Elana brought her cat Panda over to visit George, and after some preliminary hissing and slapping, a little catnip mellowed them into the state of "Wow! Dude!
