This Snootle is one of the first digital cartoons I did. As you can see, it was really difficult for me at first to get used to the digital format! It was a very rough (pun not intended) drawing! This was created on an Hewlett-Packard Touchsmart and drawn with Photoshop, I forgot the exact date, but it was around the time when the Doge-bitcoin came around. Haha.
This drawing was done last year some time, I didn’t know that it was still around. The drawing is a complete daily comic that shows Snootle and Kiwi. Those of you who do not know, I create Snootle comics and cartoons using Procreate on an iPad Pro. The Periscope video is not a speed painting, but gives you the complete method to my madness. Turn the audio off, I wasn’t narrating, and all you hear are clicks from the Apple pencil and the rubbing of my drawing glove. It is meditative to watch. 🙂
Click on the image and it will take you to the video. Cheers!
This was the second Snootle and the first daily to debut in 2004. At the time, it took so long to draw a Snootle, I could only do about two per day! Each Snootle was measured and cut out from a large piece of Bristol board. From there, it was hand drawn, inked, scanned and resized for the website. I can do a full color these days in a fraction of the time!
When first drawing Snootle, my dog at the time, Nalah used to do this every time she went to lay down! Now, it seems every dog I meet does this spinning thing. Haha!
This is the puppy dog who rescued us a few years ago. This is her first rawhide dog bone. She doesn’t know that she can eat it! Hahaha!
