I'm surprised you didn't mention 'A Gruesome Twosome' more; the characters in that inspired Stimpy! That and Larry Fine.

Here's lesson 7, that I started way back in the beginning of February

Lesson 7

Finally, because I know all of you have been dying to see this.

Hey John,

One again thanks for the lesson.

I've completed this lesson and done a bunch of copies from a Jerry model sheet, at the URL below:

Would love a little feedback, But if I'm way too late for that no prob, I'll carry on regardless.

AH! Yes John, I do have another question regarding this basic stuff:

In these old T&J and Disney model sheets and some of the Blair construction exercises where he lets you tease out the LOA by yourself, I see a lot of poses that LOOK, perhaps deceptively, like very bold and very strict C-CURVES as opposed to S-CURVES. The torso part of the pose whacks you in the face with an

Thanks a load for this post and many others! This is a great thing to hear because I love the 1940s overall, and I love those particular animations. What a joy it will be learning from what I consider to be the best :D

John,
Just discovered your blog and I have done something that would make you proud. I have pissed away the better part of a whole night reading it instead of doing my paying job.

I'm really glad you brought up Barbary Coast Bunny as one of your personal favorites, because it has been mine for nearly 25 years. It is the closest thing to being the perfect cartoon. It has absolutely

2007-07-21T12:02:00.000-07:00

Im not a cartoonist yet but I do hope to eventually become one in the very near future.And I gotta say this stuff is really great and probably saved me from making horrible cartoons in the future!

Some good words to live by, let’s hope that the financial theatrical model returns
to actually do good animation again.

2007-07-20T17:55:00.000-07:00

This is a balls-out EXCELLENT post! I only want to add that you'll learn even more from Tom & Jerry if you animate these characters. They're an example of sound industrial design without the distraction of creativity or style.

They are designed to be quick to draw & slippery to the eye when they're in motion, (i.e. they accommodate the viewer's persistence of vision & won't strobe like

2006-06-14T15:39:00.000-07:00

After reading Lesson 7, I realized that at AIFL, ALL the students learning to animate used their own characters to do walk cycles, lip synching, every animation assignment was done using created characters. They never taught us anything close to what you have said here, John. Some students tried to animate simple characters but the vast majority were trying to animate the most complex character

2006-06-13T15:27:00.000-07:00

this entry is a little while back but I must thank you for this! Wonderful Lesson, I'll wake up a bit earlier so I can watch these cartoons again :)

2006-06-11T07:22:00.000-07:00

Hey, John:

Please elaborate on this:

"...today's angular cartoons that have arbitrary and inconsistent designs that don't work well for animation. -think MULAN."

Emmy said: >> I'm enjoying these lessons SO MUCH.

Which I find strange; a glance through your deviantart gallery clearly shows that you know all this stuff already. I recommend scoffing and heckling John instead. :)

2006-06-06T21:18:00.000-07:00

hey John,

No.

But laugh at his wacky stuff.


By that he means "not right away". Like he said throughout the body of this post, study the simple stuff first before advancing the more complex.
Jim Tyer is quite an anomoly. He breaks a lot of the rules that young upstarts should be learning. That's why John doesn't want you

Thanks so much for this. Thanks for everything.

2006-06-06T17:59:00.000-07:00

I'm enjoying these lessons SO MUCH.

Question: What is a good age to be to get your first job involving art and animation?
I panic alot that i'm not good enough for my age :|

Also, what are some of YOUR favorite animated movies? Not shows, but movies. And you can't just pick the old stuff :P
Did you like Cat's Don't Dance? I have to know!

2006-06-06T16:39:00.000-07:00

i have been practicing when I can. It is hard though when school is almost out. Every time though, my Tom and Jerry drawings turn out like crap. And also coming from my sister (who is turning 9 on the 14th) she says my characters look better when I'm drawing them than my drawings of the classics. I need to be above that.
