Mada-hoo-hah??

Allrighty..here are some thumbnails I did while planning out my scenes for Madagascar. They aren't very pretty...but the point isn't about prettiness...it's about ideas..which ideas work the best and are most entertaining? So you pick and choose and hope for the best. I wish there was more time to spend on thumbnailing but it doesn't seem like there is in the land of computer animation. You've always got that deadline hanging on your back and there's no time to dilly dally. It's rush rush rush...let's get this scene done! Huh? "Oh you're THINKING about your shot? Well that's fine, but we need to show the directors something by tomorrow....so just throw some blocking in." Wha? " You don't know who the character is ?" No. "There's no backstory about his life?" Nope. " Oh..hmmmm.....well.....you'll figure it out. That's why we pay you the big bucks." Um... But I need to meditate over my desk like Frank and Ollie...and I need to take walks in the park for 2 days and absorb this scene in my head. Oh really?....." Off With His Head!!!"






















And here are some recent figure drawings from a class here at work.












Thank you kindly and have a pleasant day.

as Nick said, it is really interesting to be able to see a bit of what happen behind the screen... Thanks for sharing that with the rest of us :)
And they are really expressive and funny (I especially like the seventh)
