Illustration Friday "Fearless"

"Bungeeeeeeeeeeeee!"

If you've come here via Illustration Friday, then I'll come clean straight away. This isn't exactly an illustration, more a screen grab from a very rough and hastily put together animation.
I had every intention of drawing this bungee jumping Granny properly, but I got more interested in seeing her in action. Then I though of a silly joke and...well.. that was that.

I wish I could have spent more time making her bounce around on the cord. But there just wasn't enough time. So that's that.

  3. Hey Chris! You have me laughing out loud! What a great sense of humor you have! I did granny as well. Maybe when she was done bungee jumping she headed over to my place. Granny really gets around! You never disappoint Chris. I love dropping by.

  7. Nice work chris - the bounce on the cord looks quite good at the end.

    Would have been funny if her eyes had kept going a little at the end - I always figured that the eyes would keep moving forwards a little and bulge outwards when you bungee!

  8. Hee hee thanks for your awesome comments. Vanessa- I can practically hear you bursting through the screen. Your enthusiasn is infectious :)

    Thanks Michael, the eye comment is bang on. Maybe even leave the eyes hanging after the recoil Tex style. But I didn't really build her properly so her head is just one big symbol. Maybe I'll go back and tweak her if I have time.

  12. A cool illustration that also moves! I'm in awe of how you can animate that so quickly. The gag action is just superb (roadrunner meets ren and stimpy :).... I can just hear the looney tunes sound effect 'stretching elastic' (wile e coyote acme bungee) coupled with the clattering teeth! Careful now, you set a precedent, all your illustration fridays will have to move from here on in ;)

    Thanks so much for making me your blog of the week. I'm honored and touched. I really do appreciate your support and encouragement sir...glad to know ya!
