Here’s the final animation for Andrew Lloyd Webber and that incorrigible little orphan Fourvel from the “Time Bobby” episode of Comedy Bang Bang! It is so funny and great and still my favorite! To see this animation bigger, click here!
ALSO, the legend of musical theatre is appearing on CBB TV tonight! I hope he enjoys his animation AND his night on television.
I ended up running out of time for color if I wanted something ready to post tonight, so I decided to experiment with making it look kind of old-timey instead. I’m still open to coloring it traditionally, though!
As if we’re not gonna reblog this. PFT FTW!
Happy 300 Podcast Appearances, PFT! Thank you so much for the hundreds of hours of free comedy!
I’m not sure what etiquette to follow when congratulating a person on this particular milestone, but I’d like to take this opportunity to reiterate how very, very much I love the work of Paul F. Tompkins. He is hilarious and brilliant and sincere. Listening to someone who is so clearly a master of his craft inspires me to work harder and become a better artist, too.
I’m looking forward to the next 300.
I LOVE THIS!! My friend Kirsten Lepore is working on a new stop-motion animated film and a bunch of us got together and designed puppet extras for her. Looks like little ol’ Fourvel is making a cameo! I built the skeleton and head for this guy but she finished him up (i.e. 90% of the work) and, I have to say, did a MUCH better job than I ever could have done. SO CUTE. Can’t wait to see him move!

WHAT’S THIS NOW? I drew a much less sketchy—but just as cartoony—Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber (here’s a peek into the artistic process: I found those illustration textures by googling “fancy”) and then, because I am that desperate not to work on my film any more tonight, I animated his cape. Just the keyframes, though. Shall I inbetween? Go to color, even? Let me know, tumblr.
Hey, speaking of someone completely unrelated to Andrew Lloyd Webber, I think you should know there is a comedy special coming out soon by the world’s funniest comedian and you should probably buy it, unless you despise cheer and don’t want it in your life.
I thought about modeling the legend of musical theatre and little Fourvel’s potential benefactor after the actual guy for about 2 seconds, but… Come on. I think we all know who pulls this look off better than anyone.
Coming up next: More Fourvel! More not-so-sketchy Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber! Lord/Orphan INTERACTING? Maybe! (Definitely!) God bless Comedy Bang Bang for providing us with these amazing characters.
