The impact of spam

[Edited to add, this is an entry for Andrea's Monday style challenge. Her post is here.]

Interested in joining the war on spam? Drop by Project Honey Pot and among other things, learn How to Avoid Being Harvested by Spambots. For a detailed study on the effectiveness on an obfuscation method, have a read over at Nikita The Spider's excellent article Ingen Reklam, Tack (No Spam, Please). A primer on spam can be found at CDT.org's article Why Am I Getting All This Spam?

Can anyone out there recommend a strong PHP formmail script?

Spray Paint Art

This fellow's got more control over a can of spray paint than I do over a 2B pencil!

Lesson 9A / 10 (Model Sheets) - Part 2 (Skeleton)

(This is either Lesson 9A or Lesson 10, depending on whether you're following JohnK's numbering or the number at ASIFA.)

The $100,000 Animation Drawing Course - Lesson 9A/10 (also seen at ASIFA-Hollywood)

Notes:

  • For some reason I found it impossible to find my groove with this page
  • It didn't help that the drawings in the book I have differ from the first edition
  • Proportions continue to haunt me
  • Here's hoping the next sheet goes more smoothly

Lookie what I got today!

Which some of you may better know as this:

old_cover



Love having my own copy of the book! It's OK working from the copies that Steve Worth had generously provided over at the Animation Archive. But there's nothing quite like having your very own copy!

Between the book and all of the model sheets I've got to work on, I could be kept busy for years! Hope to be back soon.

Lesson 9A / 10 (Model Sheets) - Part 1 (squirrel)

[Edited to add the model sheet from which I copied.]

(This is either Lesson 9A or Lesson 10, depending on whether you're following JohnK's numbering or the number at ASIFA.)

The $100,000 Animation Drawing Course - Lesson 9A/10 (also seen at ASIFA-Hollywood)

Notes:

  • I found myself going a little squirrely by the end of this one ... 22 squirrels later!
  • I have issues with jowls / cheeks
  • I tend to squash the poor squirrel's head somewhat
  • many of my proportions are off from the model sheet, but I decided to not spend too much time worrying about that and go for overall effect
  • these weren't Photoshopped for comparison because I a) don't have the time and b) couldn't stand the embarrassment!
