Lion Walk – Cintiq + TVPaint Pencil Test

This is the second pass on a recent TVPaint “pencil test”. This version has several more “in between” frames than the previous pass and is starting to show more polish.

I did this study using TVPaint software on my Wacom 24″ HD Cintiq.

This is just the first shot in a full scene I will be animating over the next few weeks. What do you think the lion is looking at? Stay tuned!

Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Everyone! PLEASE check out my inaugural edition of "Aaron’s Art Tips". This will be a weekly 10-15 minute blog where I impart bits of artistic knowledge that I’ve picked up during my 25 year career in animation, illustration, and fine art. One week you might get a tip on timing for animation, the next week might be composition notes in painting. You never know what you might get. In this first edition I’ll talk to you about the evils of "evenness" in art. I hope you enjoy and please send me suggestions for future episodes. Please see more of my work at Thank you!!
