Heeeeeere's JOHNNY!

Isn't Jack Nicholson one of the coolest actors out there? He was made for the role as Jack Torrance in The Shining. He was so evil and mysterious in that role, but his performance was absolutely incredible! Also, one of my favorite Kubrick films. To me he's probably the best dramatic actor out there. No one can top him as far as I know.

Here's the picture I used as a reference. I think it's where he rises up after he kills the cook, who came to the rescue to save the wife and child. My drawing doesn't do any justice to it though. It's such a striking picture! Love the expression on his face. I was actually trying to caricature him a bit and make him seem a bit more cartoony, but I didn't like how it looked so I went for a semi-realistic almost caricatured look in my drawing and wanted to capture the scariness that the picture portrayed.

A Freak, A Geek, and Some Animation!

Here's an animation I worked on for a while. It's unfinished, but I'll get around to it once I'm done with my film.

This is actually for another film that me and a friend had started last year and I thought I could multitask on two different films, but it kinda became impossible for me and it was beginning to hold me back a lot on my first film, which is the main focus for what I wanna do right now.

Anyway, here it is! The quality is kinda rusty, but still visible. Hope you like it!

Next up is more paintings!

Howie Post/John K -- Hierarchy and Composition Study

Yo, peeps! Here's a study that John K. wanted people to try out, so I wanted to try my hand at this...

Here's how I did it:

1) The First Level of Forms

Alright, so in order for me to figure out the composition of the entire drawing I had to break down the drawing into bigger forms.
This also helped me how to measure out all the proportions of each big shape in order for my drawing to seem accurate with the original.

I condensed the details of every object in the original drawing like the trees, hill, clouds, and bushes and made them into bigger shapes focusing more on the outside forms that create the shape of each object. I didn't do the horse, kid and silhouette of the wolf 'cause they're smaller and more detailed forms. Those, I felt, had to come later. I had to focus on the bigger forms to concentrate more on the composition of the entire drawing so that everything can read clear for me.

Once I felt like I had all the bigger forms placed proportionately right, I then brought my drawing and the original into Photoshop and made a transparency...

2) The Second Layer of Forms

Now that I fixed my proportions for each bigger form, I then started on my sub forms within each of the bigger forms. The sub forms are a bit smaller and create an outline on top of the smaller details that are inside the bigger forms. This helped me know where and how the details were going to be put together. Here I felt the horse, elf and wolf is where they needed to be, but I only made the outside forms for each one.

3) The Third Layer of Forms

Once I'm confident enough with how my drawing looks, I add in all the details, which add more to the sub forms and bigger forms making them look more subjective rather than unrecognizable objects, but I still made sure everything made up a clear composition to make things read well in the picture.

It didn't come out too perfect from the original, but I feel like the accuracy is sorta there.

I actually liked how it came out and learn a lot from this! I should definitely try doing these studies more often. I always forget how much I learn from copying and studying just one drawing. I gotta keep going before I forget what makes cartoon a CARTOON!

Swing Burger!

I can't draw baseball poses for shit! But I sorta tried with these.

These were done for a man who owns a burger joint in Puerto Rico called Swing Burger. I had to half-ass these though just to show him quick sketches of what he kinda wanted, which was cartoony/goofy-looking characters swinging at a burger. He didn't like 'em too much.

Next up is a pan shot for my film!
