very cool dude. so for those larger crowd pieces, do you start in the foreground and gradually work your way to the background? its super clean! or is it sporadic, kind of wherever you feel like it?

Thanks Joe! I tend to scope out the scene and plan the shot out first...moreso for the landscape and architecture. I'll pinpoint the more crucial landmarks with dots if the background is too complex...kind of like fenceposting/tentpoling with animation keyposes so I don't get lost with the perspective. (You may notice it doesn't always work, but I try!) I do my best to stay focused, and then I just try to draw as fast as I can beginning with a random character, ususally in the middle-ground. People come and go, so sometimes I need to frankenstein some groups together. Hope that makes sense=)

Sooo awesome Terry! You should make a book with all these sketches! :)

Jesse Soto said...

Your process makes sense! But still that's a monumental effort and it turns out pretty neat. It'd be interesting if you colored one of them. Very inspiring sketches!

Terry Song said...

Hi Janice! I don't know who'd wanna buy THAT book, but THANKS=)

Hey Jesse...thank you very much, and glad that made sense...but I am VERY bad with color! I'd love to do it one day. Thanks for coming here=)
