Life drawing session


Online videos are really cool for life drawing, even if one cannot be in a room with an actual model.

Animal sketches

 So this time the life drawing session was not regular old boring oomans. This time we drew animals, but let me tell you, it was HARD. Every time we draw people, we build on our previous knowledge of years of doing just that. We develop some sort of shorthand for certain body parts, we quickly realize what the underlying anatomy is doing. But with animals, which have wildly varying proportions and anatomic features, and with action poses that seem really unusual to us. One minute was not enough to make a drawing I'd call nice, but all in all they do look interesting.

Life drawing session


Trollstopia Reel


This is my reel for the Trollstopia show, seasons 2 and 3, from Dreamworks. They make an offshoot from their 3D movies and we were hired to produce it this time. I worked on this show during 2020-2021, so this was Atomic Cartoons' trial by fire at work-at-home productions. Since neither productivity nor quality dipped during the pandemic, I think it's safe to say that every studio is now confident that having a home office workforce is doable and reliable. The world has changed, my friends.

I think it ended up looking really nice, and the scenes were a lot of fun. That's what working with such a talented team will look like.

This was animated with ToonBoom Harmony.

Yup, more oomans!


It's always such a challenge to draw people! Even if said people are pros and they KNOW how to pose. All the little nuances of muscle and bone, and we're not even getting into all the skin shades!!! I don't think I'll ever tire of doing this.

That being said, it's always a bit stressing to draw those 1-minute poses. Too fast!! Too fast!!

Ooman life drawing session

Today's life drawing session at Atomic Cartoons. Even if we don't have a live model, there are good modeling sessions on Youtube and that helps a lot to have a lively online session with friends.

Star Wars character design @ Atomic Cartoons

So Atomic Cartoons decided to have a "Design a Star Wars Character Contest" through May, and this is my own entry to the contest. Had fun with the iPad and Procreate again, although I feel like there's something I'm not getting right, and I don't know what it is. I gotta practice waaaay more.

Ooman drawing session online


Sesión en línea de dibujo en vivo. Me gustó porque en vez de ser fotografías, era el video de una sesión de modelaje. La modelo estaba en video, cambiando poses, ajustando cuando se cansaba... es decir que se sintió como una sesión real.

Supes & Bats, best friends.

 Ando divirtiéndome con la iPad y Procreate y esto fue lo que salió. Tengo que admitir que ya que llego al momento de detallar es donde me salta la impaciencia y acabo publicándolo.
