Wow! It's been a while since I posted some of my drawings. I'm still working away at someday being an animator. Still a hold out for hand drawn animation! :)

My daughter asked me to draw an elephant with his peanut. So this is what I came up with. Peanut love. The one below it is from Don Bluth's animated segment in the movie "Xanadu". I love his goofy/twitterpated expression!

Here's a drawing I did from Disney's "The Flying Gauchito". The burro is such a fun little guy to draw.

This is Skippy from Disney's "Robin Hood". It was a great study and I love his expression.

Here's one great study from Eric Goldberg's book "Character Animation Crash Course". Putting some anatomy on an elephant character.

Another drawing I did for my daughter. We both love the Chuck Jones' WB short "8 Ball Bunny" and the cute little penguin in it. This is just before they find land after Bug's stops himself from eating the little bird.

Drew this one on Easter. Wanted to have a big footed bunny. Poor guy. All those eggs to deliver and he still has a smile.

Well it's been a while since I last posted huh? I'm still drawing away though. There's some original artwork mixed in with some more Preston Blair studies, Disney and Daffy from "Daffy Dilly". The Tom drawing is just a few days old.

I have a friend who draws cartoon Hamsters and said that shoes don't go well with her Character "Amanda". I took on the challenge and made a disco dancin' hamster. She was pleased.

The dragon is an original drawing of Eustace Scrubb from the C.S. Lewis book "Voyage Of The Dawn Treader". He was changed from a human to a dragon and is none too happy about it. Oh, and that's the gingerbread man getting swallowed by the fox from the original story. Anyway, here's my stuff.

Robin Hood

Eustace Scrubb

Gator girl

I've been working on character designs for my short film called "Freedom Train". This is the only daughter of the Quaker gator family that helps the slave dog family across the Underground Railroad. She been naughty and getting chewed out by Dad.

Toby Shelton's Toothless

Please check out Toby Shelton's blog. He has such great drawings and instruction for those of us learning the craft. Thank you so much Toby. Here's my attempt at some of his drawings from early versions of toothless. I really like his rendition.

The Kiss

I screen captured this scene from Disney's "Brave Little Tailor". I believe Fred Moore drew this. It was a joy to put together. Fred rocks!

Screwy Rabbit

I saw a CGI clip of Roger Rabbit on Cartoon Brew that got me thinking of the original movie. I found this great take from the scene where Roger drinks some liquor. The bent up ears were so enjoyable to draw. I love cartoons.

Cookie's Jar

A friend of mine draws dragons alot and I did a version of one of his characters called "Cookie". I'm trying to work on straights against curves.
