This was originally intended as blog designed so that Andy Norton, a postgraduate in Creative Digital Media, could discuss his influences whilst working on a comic for his Creative Portfolio Development module on that master’s degree.
Now, the blog is intended to share articles relevant to his interests, as well as his artwork (past and present), as an experience graphic designer, with a background in illustration and animation.

Inktober- Day 19- Realistic and Cartoon Potato
I though I needed to do some research to develop my potato characters a bit. So I did a realistic study of one, via an image search, followed a cartoon potato with a face on it. I like how the 'tuber' can be made into a nose. I wanted to use a brush pen to draw it to achieve that thick-line 'manga' look that can be easy on the eye, and easy to animate - in theory! I might need to work whether I want to apply simple shading into my film or not; as long I don't try to colour it is like that with a brush pen it could give them some dimension.
