Quick post before work.

Edit: I must have forgotten to put one of the frames on my flash drive yesterday before I left for work. Woops. I put the missing one in, working on fixing the other problems.

I finally finished drawing all of the frames from the Solid Ivory walk last night.

I think the head bobbing down on frame 2 doesn't look right. There's also some shifting of the hand size. Here's John's post containing the footage I'm studying. The original does look stompy and fast, but I can't help but feel like I missed something.

(this last frame is just frame 1 repeated)


  1. you are missing a drawing in each step

    there should be 14 drawings total, 7 per step

    plus - you did drawing 1 twice - 2 different versions

    the first and last frame in your individual frames in your post should be the same drawing

    if you fix those things it will work a little better

  2. There are 18 frames in the original run cycle. In yours there are 12.

    Hope that helps!

  3. each drawing is good and solid. i saw the gif before, and it didn't look bad. i need to see the timing on the original, but yours isn't bad.

  4. Trevor-- Where do you get 18 from, if you don't mind me asking?

  5. Trevor is counting at 30fps, when the cartoon was made at 24fps.

  6. Excellent!

    I think Trevor may have gotten 18 frames from the conversion to video which doubles up some frames.

  7. .... which is why it looks weird. I was explaining to Geneva that the reason it looks odd is because of how many pictures are playing back in the original.

    Or I was trying to.
