Aigoo, this took so long. :faint:

Because I'm insane, I actually tried a background. It is based on a photo, and you can see every place that I was lazy. This thing ended up at about 16 layers at one point, most of them for the background.

It isn't to scale on purpose--it's not their actual shop, just the idea of it.

This is the cast of my current novel, Clockwork Bible. From left to right: Cadence Carter, John Walker, Bijou Davignon, and Mao Kronenburg. Their poses were a lot of fun. :boogie:

...The title really needs to be changed. ...Boomerang Method. Gotta go change that in mah blog.

I AM impressed! Even I don't have the patience for a building. And the perspective is well done, imho! :clap:

:blushes: Thank you so. There had to be a background, white space is too evil. And the bakery in this story is really important, practically a character in its own right. :D

I learned a lot about perspective while doing this. I don't know when I'll ever try it again, but I'm not as afraid of drawing buildings now. :dance:

...for some reason I want to redux this as a chibi drawing. Even chibi-fying the building. :plotting:

Well, it ties the whole picture together nicely. :nod:

Yay! :boogie:

Well, why not? :)

:D Oh good. The way it is in my mind, I wouldn't mind living there--it's a bakery with a room in back, and living quarters on the second floor.

Next up, re-learn how to actually draw sidewalk....

Why not indeed. :plotting: It makes me miss Flash, though. I need to find a way to get it on this computer. I like how drawings look in Flash.

Yeah, that's life, sometimes. :lol:

Looking forward to what you come up with. :D

And very hard work. Maybe it would balance out! But then again, I suppose there's no such thing as a thin baker. But oh how I love bread.

Yeah... I could hae sworn I knew it once.

Half-through getting Flash back. Some people do awesome stills with it, not just animations.

Fresh bread, home-made...:love: Costco puts out fresh baked bread, here on the week-ends...:love::love:


I've never considered it, but then, I've never really gotten into animation or the like either...wot's the big sell? :?

Oooh la... It makes me wish my nose worked better.

I think for me, the draw of animation on the whole is that it's a more accessible and efficient medium than film. You have more flexible periods of time within to work, and you can have a very impressive finished product with the work of a single person, which is, I would imagine, quite a rare feat in film-making.

Of course, you can go further into it and debate "motionless" media vs the moving. But that's another topic.
