Hello Everyone!

TOday I'm posting the first run assignment I did in Vanarts: starting from the character that they gave me, I did this run (mybe it is a little bit exagerated but I wanted to try what I can do with flash, how much I can Push.- Makin' flash Cartoons doesn't mean making limited quality, that's why I'm trying to see how far we can go, during something like that.

Hello Guys! Today I'm going to show you an assignment I did at Vanarts about Characters Basic Proportions:

Others are destined to be athletic, like Disney's characters Aladdin or Hercules.They are mesomorphs.

Then there are the endomorphs, characters like Peg Leg Pete or Baloo , who sport softer, rounder bodies and have difficulty losing weight.

To do this assignment I decided to make three puppeteers and play with them and their puppets:

The Goatfather

I love the Goadfather movies, expecially the first one with Marlon Brando.
When we went to the farmyard I thought: goat! goat.. goat... Goatfather! I wannamake something like that, it sounds funny!
So I made it.- I started making some ruff of Marlon Brando then I tried to make him as a goat. I also made a thumbnail for the composition.
I made some Goat sketches to make the characters more believable. Here the final drawing and some of the studies I did.-

My friend Tommaso make me the Logo(thank you Tom).-

Goats are such a funny characters and who knows? Probably me and my storywriter are going to start a project with about that :-)

Have a nice week guiS! Stay tuned
