Halloween Party!

Leave it to Herman Bear, he's found the perfect date for the costume ball!

And she can dance too! Happy Halloween everybody. Still a lot of mistakes, but half a bag of candy is better than none at all. Got it done fairly quickly this time. This is my idea for an animated Halloween special.

(Rough ink colored in Photoshop, got some photos of LA and Canada bashed in there too.)

Halloween Romance

Lady Cobra flirts with Herman Bear at a Halloween ball. Some of my neurotic weirdness as fall keeps rolling towards winter. I will try to color this in Photoshop...

Pencil sketch inked with Bimoji pens. Herman does have unusual taste in females, they've been dating on and off since around 2009 or so.

Happy Halloween gang!

The evil within

Another rough sketch: the Ibex reveals Herman Bear's dark side. In this case, she uses her magic to bring his shadow to life. The Ibex claims that HB's shadow represents every murderous thought, an destructive impulse he ever had...

Started clean up in Adobe Illustrator. Illustrator has always been my Kryptonite. This drawing still has a long way to go, but I'm finally getting some cool brush strokes.
My hats off to Jose and Sue at the Animation Guild computer lab for helping me start to overcome one of my biggest software roadblocks. Clay Butler's tutorial on YouTube is also invaluable.

The Screaming Skull!

Just some rough sketches; 
Herman Bear goes on little evening stroll with his new companion, the Ibex.

But instead of getting some Trick or Treats...

They find a different Halloween item!

(Another version, want to have the skull facing them a bit more as they approach.)

(Another version, still need to get my ink line back.)

Happy Halloween!
