Unda Da Sea

      I like how this came out. I usually don't draw Disney stuff but after looking at Lauren Montgomery's old drawings on her blog I got inspired to see how my style as of now would translate for Ariel and I like what I see. The whole Iidea of someone falling in love with a person only after 3 day (in some cases less) and going off into the sunset is insane.

A Guy & a Floating Brain?

       Really Don't know what I was doing with anything on this page. Drew the guy first and originally I wasn't loving the way he came out appearance wise because at first his cloths looked to bland but now it's better. The thing on the side of him I really have no clue what it is; a brain balloon?

Again with the Star Wars

        So already posted the drawing with the Jedi so why not a Sith? So saw this show called Star Wars: Rebels and on it was this Sith Lady called an Inquisitor(What the Hell is that?). Not really a fan of the show, but I did like how the character was designed so most of the look was from memory with my 2 cents & the drawing on the right is just some good ole "Andrew Drawing".

                                     Hope You Enjoy

Random Drawings(But with a Jedi OOOHHH)

      Some more aimless directionless drawings but this time I drew a Jedi(incase you couldn't tell) along with some weird lookin girl.

Random Things & Eaten Fries

       One of those random drawings with random jokes attached. I think I was thinking of Invader Zim when I drew the robot guy because I'm getting strong GIR vibes from him.
Hope You Enjoy

Late Night Drawin

      Drew this last weekend with really no kind of direction. I used markers so that's new for me and I like how the grey tones come out but the color markers aren't for me.

Kool Aid-Storyboards: Oh YEAH!!!

      Well as the title suggests this is all about an assignment I did for my storyboarding class that involved drawing a Kool Aid commercial.  Now this was our very first storyboard assignment but our 6th assignment in the class. Most of the prior projects were all perspective assignments and a couple of figure stuff so getting on this wasn't too bad at first knowing that my skills in perspective had gotten better.
I am crazy proud of how this came out because besides having to work from a script I had so much creative reign over this. The look for the moms were inspired by Joan Cusack from Shameless & Wendi McLendon- Covey look on the Goldbergs.  The only thing that was not my favorite part was using greytone markers; you can't erase mistakes with markers, but the colors give the boards a little oomph. 
Overall I love what I came up with
Hope You Enjoy

More Video Editing YAY

     So the moment I got back from school I was messing around with my camera & eventually taking a bunch of pictures and recordings of myself(yes I'm a vain person, but that's not the point).
    If you don't know one of my new favorite shows is The Knick on Cinemax and it is amazing ,but one of my favorite parts of watching it is the countdown sequence Cinemax does right before the episode starts. It creates so much tension and anticipation for the show and that was the sorta kinda idea I had for this little video I did.
Enter The Frame: Visceral Look from Andrew J. Etheridge on Vimeo.

     My main problem with this is that it's too damn short. That was the idea because I wanted to make this long enough for Instagram(which is stupid now I think about it), but jeez I just wish it was maybe 30 seconds instead of 15.  I like what I have like the color correcting, text timing to the music and the slow mo thing going on, but I just want more( well maybe next time).

         I know I've been gone for a bit without any substantial posts but I have some more free time now that I'm on break so expect some more good stuff coming until Happy Thanksgiving and as all ways

The Day Before My Birthday!

There are no word's to describe how good it feels to draw in my Moleyskin again(it feels like my fingers are making look with the paper). Anyway my BIRFDAY IS LESS THAN 13 hours!!!!!
I was going for a Mr. Freeze look with the big metallic body and a floating head in a glass helmet, but I don't know. It doesn't really look like him but I like it though. 
Hope You Enjoy!

Her name is Dinah

     Back when I was in my principles of 2D animation class we finally started the character animation portion of the class(YAY), but in order to do that we had to design our own character for it.

      Very early on I wanted her name to be Dinah, because A.) It's fun to say B.) Black Canary's name is Dinah( for a long time I thought it was Dana) & C.) I found out the Din
ah is Hebrew for Judgment.
   This was the first set of designs for me trying to figure out how I wanted her to look. The one on the far left looked way to much like Eva Green so that wasn't right. The middle one was to rocker chick with the bangs, but the one on the right was the closest to the design I was looking for.

Finally after looking through references like Showcase & Conceal, the beautiful Golshifteh Farahani & some Robert Valley love I found the look I wanted

So hopefully by now you guys are aware of the way I draw(Because I felt like a piranha when I showed the designs off in class). I'm the only one who didn't draw something that looked like it could've been in a Disney cartoon(Very awkward but I still stuck with her design).

 The first thing we did was make them walk which was fucking difficult to do because I couldn't find any good references to model after because most people have more "ANIMATION FRIENDLY" designs, so the closet I got was a walk cycle from Tron Uprising. Not too bad right.

Then it was time to do the character acting & I wasn't happy how it came out

Character Acting from Andrew J. Etheridge on Vimeo.

    Wasn't my best work at all and definitely helped me enforce the fact that I don't want to be an animator, but rather an animation artist (you know doing anything else except making them move). After all of that I'm still proud of the fact I kept with my design and did something that wasn't like everyone else. Well that's about all I have to say about this so as always

4 Years BABY

    I really have no idea how the hell I forgot my own anniversary for my blog (shit this is new). I blame Vixen for making me forget ( CW making me download a app to watch a 3 min episode). It's been a week since the anniversary and Highly Animated is still going strong. More stuff to be posted soon
       Hope You Enjoy Another Year!

Old drawings never seen to the public.

 So yeah I completely don't know on the "why", but never did post these drawings(probably more) I did( really don't know why I didn't post them).

     Drew this the night before I went to SCAD 2 years ago
Of course you see Bats & Robs and on the other side is a drawing of a character from this amazing show called

The Green Lantern of the Future: Kai Ro; 1 of 3 drawings I like in this sketchbook I haven't touch since I scanned it(and that was awhile ago).

Drew this maybe three years ago(had to have been see the Tron looking guy?) I think I was watching Power Rangers Ninja Strom marathon on Nicktoons

Artsy Pictures

      Hey people, so this past Sunday I went to my friends wedding and of course took some pictures(more like 616 worth of pictures and recordings) to remember the event. Because I took so many damn pictures(and I mean ALOT) I choose a handful(85 to be exact) of the ones I liked and edited them to look all artsy in black & white.
