View Full Version : Hey Roundeye ... meet Billy

05 May 2002, 08:40 AM
Yeah me and a bunch of guys down here loved your stuff so much we sent your site to our friend Billy (We all went to animation school together) ...

He loved your stuff man ... it's inspiring a bunch of us guys down here ...

Anyway, I don't know if you've met the guy, but here's a link to another forum thread with some of his recent stuff ...

Me and a few other animators are secretly plotting to kill him ...

Here's a little something I whipped up inspired by both you guys ...

(I did this instead of going to the gym .... sigh ... animator's belly here I come ... )

Damn I love all these styles!

So fluid and dynamic.

I would love to introduce this kinda flow to my stuff, but I have found in the game industry they like to say things are "too cartoony". I FREAKIN hate that term, but as a result I have strayed away from this style.

Has anyone else come up against this "cartooony" dilemma?

that character looks like it has the body of Rei Ayanami in the entry plug suit....but with fairy like qualities.

She is wearing the plug suit ... I drew it for a friend of mine who's a huuuuge Evangelion fan ... so I did a caricature of her in one of them thar suits ...

Gave it to her today ... she frigging loved it ...

Yeah as far as the cartoony stuff goes ... man, I'd keep practicing it just to maintain some kind of dynamic range ....

It can't hurt, and it'll only open up more options ...

Besides ... you'll be surprised how much it helps your posing .... even with realistic characters ...

man, I love that style, I just can't make my stuff that fluid. AWSOME!
I've gotta work on that look.
Hey, let's see some more! thanks, don
