How many of you have seen a show called "Eek The Cat"? I just recently watched a couple of episodes on YouTube. Ah, what a walk down memory lane. That's back when we still did everything on PAPER....with a PENCIL....different coloured pencils....and we used a Field Guide....and I don't mean the type you take out with you while bird watching.
Anyhow....here are a few typical layouts that we would do for posing purposes. The backgrounds and overlays etc. would have been done on separate sheets of paper, which I must have lost. Everything was registered on peg bars and drawn on a light-table. I'm not sure peg bars are even used anymore....especially not if using a digital program like "Flash".
This was a secondary character named "Mittens" who was a bit neurotic due to his doting but clumsy owner, Granny. Here he is falling down a short flight of steps at the front door, so we had to indicate a camera move to follow him.
