Kali, I know that you took a class from Ellis in college, but what is your relationship with John Kricfalusi? Is he a former teacher, friend, your uncle? Or just an artist you admire a lot?
I dig the linework. I think I've got an install of illustrator around here somewhere.Is it as simple as making a line with a pen? Or do you have to monkey with the handles to get what you want?
The George is looking nice. Is it maybe just a little stiffer than your hand-drawn stuff, though? I ask only because your hand-drawn work is so very fine. I can never decide if it's worth investing the time necessary to develop a computer technique that convincingly apes the warmth of the hand-made--or if that time is better spent on improving my actual draftmanship and just getting a good scanner.As it is, I do a little of both. And both need heaps more improvement.A quandary indeed!
"what is your relationship with John Kricfalusi?"Close friend, wink-wink, nudge-nudge."Is it as simple as making a line with a pen?"Ya Ellis, once you make a custom calligraphy brush pen with pressure turned on, it's pretty easy!Hi Davis- ya it was my first ink out of like 20, so I was a bit rusty at first, but then I got more relaxed etc. The original drawing though was drawn by John here.I agree with you about the coldness of computer drawings- but definitely for animation- it's a lifesaver in terms of time, drawing straight onto the screen.My internet was "accidentally" turned off the last two or so days! Time Warner, grrrr......
