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
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT REMINDER: Two superstars of hand-drawn animation will be heading for Vienna in October. Signor Rossi creator Bruno Bozzetto and Golden Palm winner Oscar Grillo will giving talks at this year's PIXEL conference: October 5-7 2012, Academy of Sciences, Vienna, Austria.
"Bruno Bozzetto's films have been one of the greatest inspirations for me as an animator and storyteller. He has created some of the funniest animated films ever made and is one of the most clever storytellers around. Bruno's designs are so appealing and his comic timing is truly unsurpassed."
Hey everyone, here's the rough artwork of this year's art battle promo sujet. Apropos, guess what, the 2012 guest list includes crackers such as Bruno Bozzetto, Oscar Grillo, Fraser McLean and Roy Naisbitt, smashing! By the by, I'm the lucky guy who's hosting the talk with Bruno Bozzetto, I'm sooo looking forward to it. hp: www.pixelvienna.com (tickets) fb: www.facebook.com/PixelVienna
There was a second creature supposed to be on the poster, but at the end the thing became way too big. Anyways, here's the rough sketch of it:
«Florian Satzinger has a drawing style with a snap and verve that harken back to the best of classic Disney and mid 20th Century Warner Brothers animation.
The lines with which he delineates his characters zing, bounce and swoop so delightfully that they suggest lively motion even before they’re animated.
Satzinger credits Southworth as his major influence, and his work in the style of great classic hand-drawn animation shows his continuation of that tradition.»
