The drawings are extra crappy in this one.





GROG hate drawing caricatures. Drawing caricatures of other artists in THEIR style---extra challenging.

This isn't TIKI, but you might enjoy this.

Back in the 90's, GROG' friend Markus Rothkranz was developing a live-action TV show called ATOMIC CITY
http://www.atomiccity.tv/. He wanted the show to have a "retro-futuristic look" like the Jetsons. He also wanted some retro-style animation for the credits and between some scene/location transitions. He wanted a look,"Something similar to SHAG".He ask GROG to do some developmental artwork to help pitch the show. He was shooting some scenes to help sell the look of the show and GROG had some images from the rough cuts to work from, but they didn't have the final CGI settings, so GROG have to make something up. This was only experimental pre-production artwork and was never meant to be aired, and GROG not get paid for it. GROG do artwork as a favor for a friend.

This was fun and challenging, because GROG never draw in a retro-cartoony style before. So, these are GROG' experimental illustrations for the show:

(Black outline around the character)


(Colored outlines around the character)This pose and drawing style GROG based on awesome animation art by Lynn Naylor.


Markus said he wanted something similar to SHAG, so GROG use some SHAG elements, like the console. This was the 1st illustration of the batch experimenting in this style.(No outline around the characters)


(Thick, colored outlines around the characters, with smaller detail lines within)







All live action images are from Markus' website: http://www.atomiccity.tv/




Later on we find this guy DEREK YANIGER on the internet who was doing beautiful artwork exactly like we were looking for, and GROG sent a link to his website to Markus, and voila DEREK was our man.
So, if this baby DOES ever get picked up, you'll get to see Derek Yaniger art animated.

you are a man of a myriad of styles
I really like the green "Shag"esque military men in green
all sallow from living underground for so long...
the thick outline /thin details inside Dr. Cosmo are great
works with the colors great for that style!
Thanks for giving us some sneak peeks,Ernie!
