Superman / Flaming Mosquitoes

These are old, but I don't think I've ever posted these here....


Not sure who this guy is yet, but this design came to me out of nowhere, and I had to draw him.  I'm hoping to animate this run sometime, and maybe tweak the design over time.  I don't know why, but I kind of like him, odd as he is!

A Whole Year! Yikes!

It’s been way too long since my last post!  I feel like I say that every time I post something, but I can explain!  2016 was easily the busiest year of my life.  
In 2016 I:
* Learned Adobe Flash from scratch
* Started a job as an animator on the children’s TV show “Canot Cocasse” (premiering in Canada soon!)
* Got engaged
* Sold my house
* Bought a new house and moved in (moving is a huge pain, but it’s been worth it)
* Got married (yay!) 
What a roller coaster.  It’s a real blessing that everything worked out so well, because any number of things could have gone wrong, but nothing did.  Thank you, God!
Above are a couple of recent drawings that I coloured up.  The top image is a sketch that I coloured in Photoshop, and the bottom is a piece that I drew and coloured on my tablet using the Art Flow app on Android.  I’ve got some more sketches kicking around that I plan to dress up, and I am, as always, hoping to post more frequently.
Hope you all had a terrific 2016, and here’s to 2017 being even better!

[Note:  Blogger seems to put a block of white behind my text now.  It looks terrible, but I'm going to wait and see if they sort things out on their end before making any sweeping changes to my blog to compensate.]

Flash Efforts

I'm finally learning to draw and animate in Flash.  I've never touched the program before, so it's a bit of a slog, but I'll get there.  Here's my first Flash drawing!

Here's a gif test for a character design I might play with more for a project I have in mind.

It's been a while since I drew my favourite superhero, so here he is: The Man Without Fear.

Reading Room Concept Art

Another background concept piece...

I finally figured out why Blogger was changing the colours of my images.  Apparently it was an "auto-enhance" image setting in Google+ that was checked without my prompting.  Now that it's turned off, things should look right.  Finally!

I should have Googled the issue when I first noticed it, I guess.  Who knew Google would be the problem!  I'll go back and re-upload the last couple of colour images I posted.

Sketch Dump!

Here are a bunch of random sketches from the old sketchbook!  Hopefully at some point I will have the time to clean something up and paint it, but for now sketchy sketches will have to do.

Tablet Sketch Dump

Here is a big batch of random tablet sketches on the Note Pro.  Lately I've been drawing with a blue line, because when I draw in black it feels permanent, and the blue somehow loosens me up.

Most of these sketches are just for kicks, although the little bit of plant life was some experimentation for a project I recently worked on, and the war generals were very early concept exploratory sketches for another project that unfortunately fell through.

New Project Stills

Here are a few stills from a project I am currently working on.  Close to wrapping this one up!

It seems as though Blogger is really messing with my colours when I post images here these days.  It's over-saturating them and muddying the whites, and I'm not sure why that is.  A better place to keep track of my work might be to check it out on my Tumblr account at: http://chriscormieranimation.tumblr.com/

More to come!

Still Alive!

Yes, I'm still alive!  Life has been crazy for a long while, but I'm still working, still drawing, and I'll begin posting more soon, once things settle down a little.

Here's a quick sketch I did on my tablet.  I picked up a Samsung Note Pro 12.2 last year, in hopes that it would serve as a nice digital sketch book.  Thank goodness, it's done the trick!  I'm really enjoying having it around, and I can pick it up and doodle when the mood strikes me.  Lately I've been drawing while I make my way through watching The Wire. :)

I'll be back soon!

Finally getting around to scanning in some sketchbook drawings.  It's been far too long.
