HERBERT


This is a drawing that i challenged myself on because it’s not my normal style. But i thought that it would be cool to try to imitate the old cartoon look.

This illustration was a flash/photoshop combination. Also i would like to thank steffi for the funny name, you should check out her blog in my links list labeled as Arschblog

Hey ya Antonio Mitchellvanni!

So this is the secret project you've working so hard on for the past week and a half. Great job!
A very animatable and expressive character.

Strong poses all around, although my favourite would have to be the one where he's holding the flower.

It would be cool to do an entire cartoon in that tonal value look you gave him. You would have the benefit of today's technology to get those clean lines and not have to worry about film static and graininess from mid centurary film projection. (Of course, if that's an effect you did want there's probaly an option for it in After Effects).

Also, I think 'Melvin' would have been a better name for this character, but that's just my opinion.

Keep up the good work, Pal!
