Another Process Film Clip: Rough Construction

Well, the character design of this bear here is indeed not that inventive, but it shows nicely how I get startet when I begin a new digital sketch.

P.S.: Don't miss Hans Bacher's latest post, which is, as he writes, the first of a series of posts on legendary Disney artists. And, btw, Paris based artist and fellow The Art Center team-mate Xavier "XAV" Ramonède posted a beautiful step-by-step run of his latest illustration. Check it out right over here! So, last but not least, it's always a delight to stop by Studio Soi's Newsblog and Hat's smashingly beautiful artbox of tricks!

  1. Great I would love to see more of your coloring process.

  2. Wow! These are so cool! What do you use to to make them? And could you have a video where you show yourself inking with the black lines? You have such a nice flowing quality to them.

  3. Hi Florian

    Once again I'm amazed :-)
    Thnx for the work in process
    a real source of inspiration

    keep going!


    if its possible could you post a video or pictures of your workspace/laboratory :-)

  4. WOW! With this character one can see the important influence Ken Southworth had on your work.

  5. here.... really I adore! I draw manuscripts for children where I put in scene of the bears and a rabbit and this bear is excellent. so fun ... reassure to me… the video one nevertheless is in accelerated version. (!)
    I am right on my hunger because I would have liked to see all the beginning to the end (the setting color…) but I cannot ask some too either… in any case: thank you.

  6. Amazing, Florian. I haven't looked at this blog in too long. I always tell people from the business about you here in NY!

  7. I agree with lady Queen Mob, amazing work. And it is a pitty that you just started teaching at FH Salzburg just when I finished school there.

  8. Fantastic, thank you for sharing this amazing work with us !
