BUD IS REAL!!
As many of our viewers know, Bud is the owner of “Bud’s Pets And…(whatever the episode happens to be about that week)” pet store. But what you may NOT know, is that Bud is based on a real live person! He is none other than “Fish Hook” ‘s very own storyboard supervisor, resident storyboard guru, and quite possibly the nicest person you could ever meet- SHERM COHEN!
Here are some hilarious photos of Sherm that were taken as reference for the artists and animators working on Bud (shout out to the all the talented animators of Mercury studios in Canada! You guys are the best!!!).
Not only is Sherm a good sport ;D -but he is an amazing teacher as well! Anybody interested in working in animation, specifically storyboarding, must check out Sherm’s website www.storyboardsecrets.com as well as his blog cartoonsnap.blogspot.com! It’s a chance to learn from a true master of the craft- check it out!
Hey there! My name is Derek, and I am also a storyboard artist on Fish Hooks. Here are some thumbnails and quick sketches that I did from season two. I usually start in my notebook sketching down ideas and a bunch of incoherent dialogue. Then I go to post-its, and finally it’s off to board on the computer. I like to draw Milo very plump.
