    Mr. Lumpkin - cartoon study

    Back to my roots, folks. Never been proficinent in reality; so, being a rather random doodler with an obsession with animation, I thought I'd try my hand at cartoonism. The following is a "cutout" character study. Artrage (obviously) for the imagery; Moho for the composition/eye masking. He's the guy down the street who's rather particular about his flowerbeds and likes to scold kids for playing on his lawn.

    Any constructive crits encouraged. Only the eyes are masked at present and full rigging of the character is yet to be done, but it seems at least feasible to animate this guy. Hope to post something "in motion" soon.

    Luuuuuuuuv this program! This is the easiest it's ever been to create a 2D character from scratch (no scanning/tracing)!

    Rip him/me to shreds!

    Ooo, very cool character.
    Do you have a sample of the animation you've done with him?

    Thanks guys,

    Nothing animated yet. I'm still workng on a stable stable bone-rigging and switch layers for the mouth/hands. Visions of something Gilliam-esque dancing in my head.

    What I lack in creativity is more than compensated by inspiration.

    Posting more as it comes together.

    Thanks again!

    PS.
    Andy, is there a way to re-position a duplicated layer? Might've come in handy for the legs/arms. I wound up re-painting each when I probably could've exported an image and re-imported to position, but I didn't think of it until after I was done. Just curious.

    Keep up the good work!

    Mr. Lumpkin looks great, Therm0s, can't wait to see him animated. Thanks for posting the detailed close-up, I love the brushstrokes of the cheek and nose and ear.

    Question?

    So did you paint the arms, body, and head on different layers? Just curious how you accomplished this repositioning of the arms and head. I like the look of this painting.

    Thanks everyone!

    DMerchen:
    I did paint each "part" on a separate layer and export them each as images. I then used another program (Moho) to put the images together and position them. As far as I know, there isn't a way to move or rotate individual layers in Artrage (not really the purpose of the program). Moho is specifically built for this kind of "cut-out" animation. Moho also does the "masking" on the eyes.

    Thanks for the interest.
