Etching plate proofs - 11/10/11

Just some quick proofs of some small plates I did over the last week. Some good, some well....... They are fun to do, will tinker on a few a little more. I like keeping them simpler then my ink drawings. I will have to do some over drawn ones also. I would like to have a good selection for the show in September. Not all will make the cut for the show, I'll just see what I have to choose from when the time comes to print them up.

Timmy Skeleton walks

Ok, here's a fun test I did with Timmy's skeleton that I rigged up yesterday. It started off with some sketches to figure out Timmy's anatomy a bit. Then came the model, truth be told, I used a really bad base skeleton model from work and tweaked it out. Then for some reason I decided to rig it saying that it would be cool to animate it. Can you say compulsive? I guess I'll tinker a bit with animating this in hopes I can understand how I want my boy Timmy modeled and rigged. This is not the way he will walk, but it was just fun to test out the rig that I built, since it's the first one I have done, I wanted to see how bad of a job I did. It works pretty well though. Think I'll tweak a few things to give him more flexibility, but not bad.

Movin on

Ok what started as a doodle in a meeting the other day started sucking up my time as I was compelled to keep scribbling. So I have decided to post it and cast it into the pile of the unfinished and get back to the agendas that are waiting for me. It can live hear with the other half baked ideas.
