new...old characters

I was talking with Josh the other night and our original idea came up (the one that preceded Manny and Khan) Bigfoot and the Gnome. Well, thats kind of what I've been working on the last few weeks. That and a few other comic ideas that have been floating around in my brain. Anyways, these two roughs are my re-imagining of Bigfoot and Gnome. I sent them to Josh and he was cracking up. Don't get me wrong, I love Manny and Khan and all but it was fun taking a step back to where it all began.

Then Josh went and did the drawings below of differnet versions of Gnomes and Bigfoot (Bigfeet? Bigfoots?...). Man his drawings really got me laughing.

if you get a chance swing on over to Josh's blog and check out the tip sheets he is doing for storyboarding. his links over on the right ---->

I went a little crazy coloring this one. Im trying out different things and some of it works and some does not. I think Im going to do this one again and try to keep it simple like the rough drawing.

animation backgrounds

these are two kind of different ideas I had, not sure if I like them and all. the roughs were really small drawings, only 4 inches by 3 inches. I like the grass a little. but Im not crazy about them yet. would love some input if anyone wants to drop me a line.

Here are some rough backgrounds that I did the other night. I haven't painted these yet but I've started painting some others in photoshop and I'll post them next along with the roughs for comparison.

thanks for looking :)
