Quite the Smiles by Lotusbandicoot Quite the Smiles by Lotusbandicoot
Hooray for FAKE fake cels! (That's why Hogarth has no waist, and why they have shadows under them.

I rented The Iron Giant a few days ago on YouTube just to watch through it again for the first time since 2005. I saw the beginning scene in the diner, and when Dean and Hogarth have those ridiculous smiles (ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5…, it really made me want to make my own version of it. So I tried to put them in a style based on the Games era of Ren & Stimpy... at least for Dean. I think Hogarth is a combination of that style and my own.

It's supposed to look like a cel setup, so not all of Hogarth was drawn here. For example: vegalleries.com/ren/01ren40.jp…

Were some of the colors done in CS6 or am I going crazy! :XD: I can't even remember the last time I watched The Iron Giant.

Yes, this entire thing was done in Illustrator CS6. :XD: Although I sketched it on paper first. (Just the characters... I completely freehanded the background in Illustrator.)

That's really cool. What program did you use for the inking? Do you have any tips or tricks for that sort of smooth line work?
Reply
:iconlotusbandicoot:
Lotusbandicoot Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014  Student General Artist
Thanks. :) Well, I use Adobe Illustrator CS6, and I have a Wacom Bamboo CTL-470 tablet. Illustrator pretty much smooths all the strokes you make, but you can adjust how much it does.

I don't ink much on the computer. My recent image was inked using Flash and colored in Photoshop.

Oh yeah, the brushes in Flash are a little weird. Their style of correction is actually kinda annoying sometimes. While animating, I may even undo a certain line SEVERAL times.
