The original sketch on the far left is by fnookThe rest is my version of the same drawing as I tighten and clean it up to final.Our styles are similar to the point that we can easily read each other’s rough drawings and know the intent behind them <3
Done up in Photoshop CS4

Awesome job babe. I was gonna revisit this drawing myself, but it looks like you beat me to it. ^_^

Still battling art block, but listening to a lot of Deadmau5 and drawing cats for my sketchbook… so have a brainfart doodle of a sneaky Meowingtons.  Maybe I’ll finish this up but good later.
 Boof!
Doodled in Flash 8

Don&#8217;t worry babe, you&#8217;ll be out of the art block soon.

Flickr video quality
For those who use flickr for professional portfolio purposes like I do, could you please take a moment and have a look at the support request that I recently posted?  It’s regarding the recently changed playback quality for their video support.  It used to be fantastic, but they’ve recently changed it, and now videos uploaded in 720p and above show up in terrible quality.  It’s bad enough that I’m starting to consider no longer using #flickr for my online portfolio, which is a shame because outside of this issue it’s a great portfolio site.

If you could do me a favour, please up-vote my support request.  Hopefully we can get them to increase the quality.

After picking up a license for Toon BOOM Harmony 11, I made a special effort to try out some of the cool new features.  In particular is the &#8220;Mesh Deform&#8221; feature which allows for real-time animatable lattice deformation.In this demo, I&#8217;ve created a single teardrop shaped flame drawing, (1 Drawing!!!) then aplyed the mesh deformer to that drawing, and animated the lattice changes over the timeline.  The result is a animated flame cycle that looks like it was hand drawn over 24 drawings, instead of a single drawing.It&#8217;s likely that I will post detailed work in progress stages explanations at a later date.Animated entirely in Toon BOOM Harmony 11, on a WACOM Cintiq Companion slate PC.
