- Phineas and Ferb -
Interview With a Platypus

When beginning my study of different art styles and storylines, I was in the midst of a Phineas and Ferb marathon with my family, and a study of the show was an obvious choice.


I watched, re-watched, paused, and scrubbed the episode "Interview With a Platypus", and started sketching out key moments in graphic novel form. With each page, I got better and faster at drawing the characters.


The shapes and style of each of the characters, the essence of who they were, became imprinted in my mind, to the point where I could sit down and sketch them without reference.


It was also interesting to see the choices the original artists and animators made, even with only a 9-page comic. I also loved to experiment with panel placement that would draw the eye naturally, and I experimented with many different ways of doing it.

I can no longer watch this episode the same way as before this study, and the way I view the show has also changed. It has given me an eye for the small details, and every time I watch this episode, all I can think of is: "How would this moment be captured in graphic novel form?" ■

- Phineas and Ferb -
Meap Me in St. Louis

With the knowledge gained from the previous Phineas and Ferb experiment, I wanted to start sketching out scenes from the "Meap Me in St. Louis" trailer, in case I wanted to create a story for it.

- The Dragon Prince -
Echoes of Thunder

A year or so after my Phineas and Ferb art style studies, I decided to try my hand at studying manga-style composition (read right to left), along with the art style of The Dragon Prince
