I restarted recording process clips in parallel with my work, here's one of those.

Update: In the comments section Matt was asking about how I go about believable weight. What I often do/have in mind when I'm drawing is like the character kind of stands on two (because he's four-legged) imaginary supernatural cement blocks or magnets which boost gravity of sorts. Apropos, my pal Wouter did a nice post about this issue, too: Wouter Tulp about weight


  1. As always, cool and amazing!

  2. One of the things that I really love about this is the sense of weight and gravity as on the character. I get a sense of they play on the volume of the piece. Would love to see how your process for that.


  3. Anonymous :) Thanks!

    Matt, many thanks, I updated the post!

    Derek, cheers my man!

  4. J'aimerai tant savoir cariucaturer les animaux comme tu sais si bien le faire ! WOUAHOU !
