Spooky Silhouette Doodle

Second sketch, getting more enjoyable the more I do. The hard part is actually doing the initial scribble and not just shading in the canvas.

Monster Miner Doodle

I’m going to be doing a series of illustrations on photoshop by creating images out of scribbles on my graphics tablet.

I tried to make it into a little mining type creature that was cradling a fluorescent bar to light the way.

“FrailFred” Walk Cycle


[Fred Sketch]

[Fred walk sketch]

I wanted to have Fred walking, hunched over, and rather flat footed so he is stamping his way.


  • Started from the feet up
  • Got one foot moving as I wanted then did the opposite for the other foot (make notes on values used because it is very hard to remember and tedious to keep checking)
  • Check the leg movement and adjust if needed
  • Adjust the degree of hip swivel
  • Hunch the back and the shoulders
  • Animate the movement of the shoulders
  • Make the fingers curl in on themselves to look like the man has arthritis
  • Get the arms to swing starting at the top, down to the wrist (adjusted last)
  • Tweak any awkward movements

Passing The Time

I’m not entirely sure how to explain this one. I was trying to think of something to draw and started with a dodgy circle which resulted in this.
