The P&C Bible is a sketchbook, a couple hundred pages thick or so, which is gradually being filled with design notes, sketches, and animation references for each character and element of the Peter & Company universe. This will be used as a textbook for the animators on the pilot.
One of the challenges from translating a comic to animation is consistency; in a comic you can get away with variations in characters from panel-to-panel, but in animation it is more noticeable. So everything has to be streamlined so that the animators’ fingers and brains don’t spontaneously combust.
I’ll post additional glimpses into the P&C Bible as time goes on.
Oh… LOL.. Leave it to the “Top Gear” guys. This totally broke me up.
The Honeypot is out and available ( https://jaynaylor.com/catalog.php ). It takes place before Fisk was married. This Veronika story was rattling around in my head for over a year, before I finally turned it into a project. It has some amusing moments.
The sensuous creativity of Mr. Naylor continuously amazes me.
I bet they live on the west coast where vegans and idiots roam freely
please don’t do this to your cats
All felines (especially House Cats) run on an all protein diet. What many “Vegan’s” don’t understand is that so do HUMAN’s! Many of the essential protein’s our body needs to keep healthy (especially w.r.t. the protective fat that keeps our nervous system healthy) comes from animal protein … that is MEAT! Yikes! Give this kitten raw meat, and me a New York Steak, please.
This oil on stretched canvas over a frame began 2 years ago. The Golden Gate Bridge and the sunrise behind it are based on a real photo I took coming back into San Francisco from a cruise to Alaska.
The bridge came out well, but for some reason I’d never been pleased with it. Something, at the time, had been wrong with the painting. Well, during the 4th of July week, when I began working on this again, I realized the problem and fixed it!
Then, I added in the sailboats and this is the result. The boat in the foreground came out beautifully, IMO. This is 16x20 Oil on Canvas.
Attending a local county fair each year, there’s quite a lot of activity. This year, like last, I entered into a Plein Air painting event. For a five hour period participants can work anywhere on the fairgrounds, as long as it’s publicly accessible. You must use a blank canvas, and any media (oils, pastels, watercolor, acrylics, etc.) and work from 11:30am to 4:30pm.
Using a 16x20 inch canvas board (and it’s a first for me to use canvas stretched over board) and oils I painted the infield of the fair’s horse track. I nearly added horses, but as I got to the point where it was nearly done, I decided against it (see… I really can’t paint horses that well). After 5 hours, this was the result.
I nearly took 3rd!! Even though it didn’t win, I am so pleased with the result! Even my father, who paints 10,000 times better than me said it’s a dramatic improvement from past work.
I’ll be sure to enter it into the regular fair for show (and possible sale) next year.
