Some sort of weird background based off one from Rita and Runt and that might actually be a pretty good set-up for a comic. Mmm, I will have to look into that.

This is a nice drawing.  It will be interesting to see what the final comic will look like.

Wooo - colour! Some good work on this background, and you're already considering perspective which is of course good! :D
Here lies a signature that has little point.

Well, it IS based on the cover of a video-game (not shockingly enough: Deus Ex). So I would be pretty terrified if it didn't :P

But thank you :D

Also, this is my new profile pic on FB... because canvas:

I haven't played the game Deux Ex, but your drawing seems to be an accurate reproduction of the cover.

The latest one with Ice Bear is also nice, and I find it rather funny.

Ice Bear animates:



I couldn't be bothered to put my logo in there (because it would have been way too distracting) but the name is in the title of the file, so whatever. It's mine :P

Cool! I didn't know you animate. You gotta do more of that (if you want)!

Wow, this animation is so cool!  What software did you use to make it?

Thanks! I'm glad you like it :) I used Paint.NET for the drawings and GIF Movie Gear for the final compilation of all images (although, I wouldn't recommend you to use that software if you can help it... it sometimes likes to go bonkers and it creates a nasty ghosting effect that can turn the whole thing into a black mess).

You know what? I love doing animation, and the feeling you get when you see the whole thing in motion for the first time (if you haven't screwed up) is just priceless... I really do like it a lot. But, that said, I gotta also comment that it was one of the most painful things that I have ever done.

It took me a solid hour and twenty minutes to create that simple animation... even though everything went really well (and despite the fact that Ice Bear is one of the easiest characters to draw in the history of anything). It's just a hellish thing to do. I mean, I loved it and all, but when I think that I was lucky enough to use the same drawing of Ice Bear for seventeen frames and I only had to animate the ball and some body movements for the most part, I really start to appreciate those animated shows that I absolutely adore in a totally new way... animators really do have one hard job and it's not until you have tried to do it for yourself that you start to understand how hard it actually is (and, in case I didn't make myself clear here, it is the toughest thing ever).  

I'm gonna try to make a run-cycle next. Just to see how it goes :D
