Eddy aka “Proto-Malco”. I thought I’d have some fun and redraw my first original creation. Yes, this is the first initial design for Malco back in 2003. Before he became an adventurer, he was a small, energetic, goggle-wearing goofball with a love of flight. The stylistic influences in his design are pretty obvious.His color was loosely based on Farfetch’d (the under-appreciated duck pokemon):
His goggles, Daxter from Jak and Daxter:
And everything else is of course… 

As for his new name, that was in tribute of one of the main characters of my favorite movies at the time of his creation… Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In a strange way, despite all of the comparisons I had gotten in the past, I almost regret abandoning this design. But who knows, maybe I’ll have something planned for little Eddy in the future. After all, “Cartoon characters never die”.

When you realize that the animation job market sucks.

I’m gonna have to call bullshit on this one. Yeah. I used to feel the same way. I used to think that the animation industry was something that people took for granted and didn’t give enough respect to. But after talking to a friend in the industry, I found out that that’s not the case. We’re not doing this job for adults. We’re doing it for the next generation of kids who like us love watching cartoons and hopefully aspire to do what we do. And if we are working on projects that are made for adults then that is also an accomplishment. In the animation industry the tools might change, but storytelling will always be the same. 

If you are an independent animator, good focus on what makes you happy. Do what you can to entertain and challenge yourself. Don’t let sites like Tumblr and Cartoon Brew tell you otherwise. They are a cesspool of negativity. Focus on what you like and what you see that you think is really cool and eventually you’ll realize that you don’t need to worry about the job market. You’re already living the dream.

I couldn’t type about this last night because I got home from the movie at like 12am and I was so exhausted I had to pass out. And much to my dismay when I checked tumblr to see how excited people were about the very important messages in this movie, I found out that someone had started a rumor…

Reblogging this until it spreads like wild-fire.

I can actually agree with this, b/c it did get really old really fast.

A different take on the style challenge. Thought I’d tackle a more down-to-earth artist this time around. Hirohiko Araki best known as the artist behind Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, complete with stand (named Eraser Dust Nightmare). 
I hope I managed to do the style justice. If not please let me know and I’ll remind myself never to do this again. Style©Hirohiko Araki

Not reblogging Kermit is a legitimate lifestyle choice, but please know that ‘ll believe your soul is blackened and corrupt if that is the choice you make
