A good day.

It was a somewhat good, productive day.
The new scene I was assigned moved very slow, as I try to figure out the right notes to hit.

Reworked some Flight Explorer doodle. I think it's a bit clearer, could still use some works. Quite a few pages of rough left to go.

Listened to Toy Story 3 and Mushi-shi (live action) while working. Tomorrow, may bring Asterix : Mission Cléopatre or Dans Une Galaxie Près de Chez Vous 2 for a bit of french speaking cinema.



All more or less quick doodles.
I need to speed up on colors.





Gah!
Apologies for all the fanwork. I...I can't help it! I just love playing around with characters that aren't my own (and quite often work related).
How sad is that?
What is it going to be like when I have access to the rest of the cast of that movie?
Or when I'll drink again and DO that Symbionic Titan thing I said I'd do?

Oh goodness, Mushishi!! I've been spending my overnight desk job shifts watching the animated series while I draw, and sometimes write, because it's so beautiful and atmospheric, and it's all available to stream on Netflix. It's good to listen to, sometimes, like a radio show, especially if I know the episode well enough. Truly a wonderful thing, I love that series with my whole heart. <3

I'm thinking of turning to Fullmetal Alchemist next, for sheer nostalgia's sake. Netflix's anime selection is really something marvelous.

Also, I know the feeling about working with other peoples' characters! I'm writing a novel-sized thing at the moment that couldn't even be published, but I'm putting so much work into it anyways because I love it and I love the people in it. I feel proud to think of what I've done so far, and I can't wait to finally finish it and share it with the world. It's not sad at all, creativity and passion, no matter where they come from or what you work with, are the best things ever.

The live action movie was so-so; felt like they were adapting 3-4 episodes in one film, which made for a weird quilt of a story. Still, the concept is interesting and I wouldn't mind watching the anime.

Definitely gotta watch the anime. The music and atmosphere of it all is so calming.

Hahaah! XD Excellent comic. Made me think of that scene from The Emperor's New Groove when Yzma & Kronk were trapped in Pacha's house.

'Open the door OR we'll burn the house to the ground!'

:D Say, how do you go about planning a comic page? I mean, I've been trying to draw this page based on a scene in a book, but I'm kinda lost. =|

Much, MUCH love for Yzma and Kronk and the Emperor's New Groove movie.
How do I plan? Trial and error I'm afraid. Sometimes, the inspiration will come as I draw it. Other times, I will canibalise layout or frame ideas from a pile of doodle and try to arrange it coherently. Other times, the inspiration could be the mood of the scene I want to convey.
Is it comedy? Is it action? Is it serious? Is it just dialogue? Is it environment-moody based? All this can affect a page layout.

Its comedy, definitely. I don't know if you've ever read The Amulet of Samarkand but the scene is bordering on sarcasm, I think. I'm doing it for Jason Turner's Page 100 project. The scene is narrated by a spider on the wall that is mostly making fun of the people below it.

I guess trial-and-error is the way then. I keeping trying different angles, but they're not meshing well.

Hee, hee! For a minute, I thought that was Zhao in the closet!
rufftoon
Nov. 9th, 2010 05:39 pm (UTC)
Maybe it was, and Zhao has the incredible power of turning invisible!
Wouldn't he love that.

The live action movie of Asterix (the second one- the Cleopatra one), has some very funny moments. Some are entirely dialog based, so it may get lost in translation.

You can bet the character in the closet will come out one day. You just wait and see.

I love all the fanwork, you make these characters so fun! XD

Btw, do you still need help coloring? I'd love to help you out and I could send you some samples I've done. :D
rufftoon

I'd love to see your color samples, see if it would fit the style I'm going for.

I don't think it's sad that you like to draw other people's characters... I enjoy animating other people's characters, is that pathetic?

Si jamais tu cherches d'autres suggestion de cinoche: Le Trotsky avec Jay Baruchel. Vraiment amusant! :D

I wish you another great day!

Yeah, I guess not.
It's just...there's always this pressure to do something with original characters. I can understand why; they do need love too!
Merci pour les suggestions de film! Je vais voir si je ne vais pas m'acheter quelques films quebecois ou francais quand je retourne a Montreal pour les fetes.

*laughing at comic* I love how in the last panel, the eyes are like "...Damn it."

And that's why I never walk into that closet without opening the light. There's something frustrated living in it!

I LOVE Asterix : Mission Cléopatre XD JAMEL <3
rufftoon

Oh yes! He did a great job with his character. If anything, the supporting cast in this movie was so much fun to follow, almost more than the main characters. Heck no, they were all fun!

The things I remember the most were:
"Cesar ou César?" and
"Androïde?" XD

Oh, and the guy from canal + who talked a lot about... stuff... I think it was Jamel's character's boss?
rufftoon
Nov. 10th, 2010 01:20 am (UTC)
Nah, Jamel was his boss- he was just the scribe-accountant, help architect, inventor of the "sans-efforceur". He did go on and on and on and on in his speech XD

Ooh fanart!! Love it!!

I sometimes draw random fanart doodles in my notebook during our dailies, but they're usually pretty rude - nothing lovely like this.
I love the way you draw Jack -I can't wait to see more of the charactes... and the teaser XD

I'm just not posting any of the rude ones, ha ha!
No one will ever see those.
