getting warmed up for work next week

Cowboy sketch for an exercise in Tom Bancroft's design book 'Creating Characters with Personality'. I think it's one of the best design books I've read so far.

Some more rough sketches to get ready for my new job as a designer at Bardel Entertainment next week. I'm pretty excited about this new gig.

Nice work, the little girl kind of reminds me of a "hero bear" style and the cowboy looks like Woodgate.

Hey budd, good job on the drawings, The dANN-ATOR IS BACK BABY... Congrats again in Bardell. R-mode represent

Emmett said...

So great about the gig too.
Drawing? For real drawing?
Seems so rare in the animation field these days.
Jusr remember, Dan: Real drawers never lift the pencil from the page. One big line. And start with the nose. Always.
