An outlet for my brain when it fills with fire.
oh, this kind of makes me sad...
Wow!I've seen the first spongebob sketch on television but I had no idea that the other characters had to go through changes.!That's really cool.
I bet the designs for "Purple & Brown" have gone through similar transformations.
this is sad. funny asymmetrical drawings turned into watered down plain stale drawings. :(thanks for showing this though.
No Doubt. I know Ren and Stimpy changed a lot between pilot and series.
They shouldn't have watered them down.
how does this happen why do they dumb everything down so much? is it just cause its easier to animate?
Awesome stuff. Why are the original designs so much better than what is used? That always bothered me. Great drawings.
Well it is very hard to translate a loose drawing into finished piece without losing some of the spark. Plus in this instance you're looking at a rough drawings standing next to one pose of a turn around. In other words "The characters at their most boring point."We don't limit the characters to the model sheet.The over seas studios have strict instructions to follow the board pose, and or special character poses that we send for specific scenes.
This post gave me an idea: imagine a framed picture of the original sketch that your parents had in mind you would look like, then the actual you! It would be like the reverse of these! Clean ups, then the rough!
I resemble that remark!
Don't you mean "resent" hahahahahah...
No, I mean I look just like that.
Development kills the cartoons in most cases. Read what I'm talking about. I use two sloppy examples of cartoons ( CLERKS and AQUA TEEN ) and then show the fantastic development sketches.Enjoy, and thanks for the SpongeBob insight!- trevor.
Are you planning on doing any work for John K. in the future?
Lindenbaum,If it was the right time and the right project. Yes absolutely. Working at Spumco was a joy. It wasn't ever easy, but then good things don't usually come easily.
NIce Cintiq drawing! It's fun to mess around in Painter with a Cintiq! Nice monkey universe by the way haha...
Thanks Kali, I haven't tried painter yet. Im going to go see if its in my apps.Those blk and wht drawings you did at school were great. Terrific shapes and contrasts.
I have a question...ooo. Do animators,storyboard artists, etc get to meet the voice actors or actresses who voice the cartoon they are working for? If so, have you gotten to meet Ernest Borgnine when he voiced "Barnacle Boy"?
I meet them because on occasion I have been asked to step in and voice direct.But most of the board folks are too busy to run down and meet the voice people on the one day a week that they are in studio.PS: Mr.B is the voice of Mermaid Man, and Tim Conway is Barnacle Boy.
"Those blk and wht drawings you did at school were great. Terrific shapes and contrasts."Thanks Vincent! That means a lot coming from you, Monkey Ink Master!
Man, That original squidward looks amazing!, too bad it's a little blurry! How about a better picture, it looks hilarious!
I LOVE Popeye-inspired Barnacle Bill!
Oh, and the fact that he is made of wood is gold!
Gotta love a well dressed monkey!Nice to see & hear ya bro.Andre
This is cool! The first-time drawings kinda look weird, especially the Mermaidman and Barnacleboy ones. They're still kinda cool, though.
Eew.....they look so weird! I'm glad that they changed the character's looks.....I mean, it's a funny show and all, but their faces and bodies would've disturbed me to the point of not watching it anymore.
