Part Two has a lot of pictures, so I split it into two sections.
When Nakamura-sensei says “manga style”, he is simply referring to a less realistic style of drawing. The next section will show you what he is referring to.
Ha! Another weakness of mine! This really helps to emphasize the pressure points.
Needed this for about twenty years
The shoulder girdle area is the hardest thing for me to draw!!
As most of my followers know, I just found out three days ago that my mother is dying; late-stage pancreatic-cancer. After just making a cross-country move, I can’t afford to fly back out right now. I need some help. I know times are rough for everyone, but even if you can’t afford a commission- please give me a signal-boost.
At this rate, I know I may not make enough to make it out there before she passes. I’m still trying to reconcile with that fact; but I want to at least be there for her funeral— and figure out what’s going to happen to our pets, as she’s been keeping my dog and cat for me.
I ask a lot of my followers, and I’m sorry to— but if you could please throw this around on the web for me, I’d appreciate it.
Definitely give her support in this time of crisis. There’s nothing more heart-wrenching that not being able to see a loved one in need. Her work is great and definitely worth your time! My heart is with you, Caton!
Another Birthday….Oh my!
Oh, me, oh my! I’ve revolved around the sun another time. Well, we gotta make this year and the coming years even better and hopefully I’ll have better artwork and better projects on the way for all of you!
Thanks for all your support out there! *blows kazoo*
I wanted to help promote one of my teachers from the Animation Academy. He has a long history dating back to Filmation’s He-Man as well as having worked on Jak and Daxter as well as Crash Bandicoot. Not only had he taught me the fundamentals of character design, but he is also a great friend! He has some really awesome artwork and I invite all to check out his gallery.

Wow man, thanks for the follow. Your stuff looks great!
Thanks so much! You too for reals! Your characters have a lot of life. What do you do currently?
support the artists and more specifically the VFX community. Without their hard work, the vision a director has for their film may not be realized and recognized as well as they do.
With all respect to R&H. God bless the VFX artists and all their unsung astounding work.
I know he’s an obscure character who was only featured once in the Droopy cartoons, but he was a lot of fun to draw. He was from the short “Outfoxed”.
I also threw in a little Tokyo Movie Shinsha influence with the speed lines.
