A little morning exercise

cheezcurlpoz1.jpg Encouraged by the flurry of comments about favorite cheese curl poses (thanks you guys, I don’t even have to ask — you all just jump right in and tell me what you think!) I started refining some of them.

Between sketching and a real plan to work in fabric from, there are lots of little steps. Rayna said she liked this one.

That’s why some animators’ characters only have four or three fingers. Less to draw, especially in the old days when they had to hand-draw each cell.

But in the end, I never could get that pose to relate to my other cast of characters.

So moving onto to a pose inspired by Linda, I also decided to call them Cheez Curls, sounds cheesier, don’t you think?

Hey, maybe I should add a little mouse in there somewhere too. cheezcurlclass.jpg

  1. Oh Pamdora, how I adore you! Please give me some of your yoga wisdom…. You see, I pulled my back in yoga class, and am so blue. What would you, Pamdora do?

    OK, Im being cute, but seriously. You have such amazing yoga moves, yet never seem to hurt yourself…..


  2. I’m not sure how I inspired what you came up with. Unless it is the twisting workings of my mind. I love this. The mouse doing yoga would look so cool.

  3. Hi Jacque, Sometime now when I wake in the middle of the night, I stretch and and do some relaxation breathing and it does help me get back to sleep. Plus you can do it without turning the lights on, which I think helps keep you from waking too much to return to sleep.

  4. Love this….and love the idea of the yoga-mouse, too! It’s after 2:00 a.m. and I can’t sleep. Maybe some yoga breathing exercises would help!

  5. See, blogging with you all really does feed my work with good ideas!

    And hey Mary Ann, you’ve got a new blog too. Looking forward to your posts!
