More Lantz Sketches

Here's some more drawings from different Lantz model sheets. I find Woody's body to be very difficult to draw. I'm going to study Emery Hawkins' scenes in "Apple Andy", there's some fantastic poses in them but I hate drawing and looking at a computer screen. There's no room on my desk. I suppose I could print out some screen shots but then I'd have to get off my ass and get some ink for this cruddy printer.

Hey

Thanks a lot for the comment. I'm familiar with "Plane Daffy" as well, that's probably my favorite Daffy short of all time.
You have some really nice drawings aswell, are you in the business? aspiring animator?

Kevin Langley said...

Hi Josh, thanks for the kind words. I'm not in the business, I'm trying to learn to animate but I have no real aspirations to do it for a living. Unless of course "real" cartoons make a comeback, then I would maybe try to get a any job in the field I could.

Actually, these Woodys (Woodies?) look pretty good. Though I agree that the one in the middle where he's pointing looks wonky, body-wise. (Heck, I can't get that danged Mickey Mouse tamed!)

Apple Andy rules! Looking forward to more. You're doing great, IMO...

Do you have any original work? Original characters?

Kevin Langley said...

Hey Josh, I don't really have any original characters. There might be a drawing or too on here but nothing very original. My other blog was actually started so I could post a short I was working on at they time. I'm not happy with the way it was coming out so I'll revisit some other time. A friend and I are working on a short for a superhero type. I don't think I draw well enough to take on drawing people but it's fun so far. There's an animatic for the short on Youtube. It's called Flexxo, most of the drawings are shit. I was just trying to tell the story. I'll try and clean it up when I start laying it out.

Hey
I watched the animatic. It wasn't that bad. There were some nice poses, and nice expressions. It felt very John K, the jokes and the general tone of the animation.
I like the shot when the old lady opens the door and we get a close up of Flexxo's package.

His sidekick reminds me of Jimmy The Hapless Idiot Boy

I think the best drawing of woody, out of these is the facial expression on the second page.
