I'm currently expanding the scope of the Frogs and have been searching for the correct medium. Animated GIFs have come up from time to time as a serious thought. I like GIFs. They are simple to enjoy and quick. No play button, no sound, but they can have an impact if done well. I love the GIFs people make on the internet and I wanted to make some too. Enjoy this one called, "Slaying Success."
It's really wonderful to have the opportunity to attend the Great Frog Comic Conference (GFCC) of the Pacific Northwest this weekend. I'll be schmoozing with some of the great frog comic artist like Alfred P. Sloan, Guy Fresco and Terwilliger Worthington. I'll take lots of pictures and delete them immediately because my memory is much more accurate.
|I started with some soft brown paper for my base and some black paper which I knew I was going to use as a mat and border. I then sketched a border, the lettering and the frog with pencil.|
|My hand holing a pencil I own. (pretending to sketch)|
|I did a few tests with some of these markers and I decided the darker warm grey looked best for the letters and the lighter warm grey looked best for the frog.|
|I like the watercolor feel of the grey markers. They are Faber-Castell big brush markers.|
|Frog before he had dried completely.|
|And there it is. By Tyler Twombly. The End.|
