Artist Corner- Artist Profile: Michael Amos – Tombow Pencils in the Outback 2


 Michael Amos is a Visual Development Artist and Character Designer from Melbourne, Australia who has been working in the animation industry for over 14 years. Throughout the years Michael has worked with clients like Disney and Pixar films, Touchstone Pictures and Coca-Cola.  Michael uses Tombow MONO Drawing Pencils in his sketches and loves the look of the 2B and 4B pencils.

He uses Tombow pencils for the initial drawing and then adds the final touches using PhotoshopCS5. Amos prefers to use Tombow pencils for the initial drawing because he likes the “real pencil” look. The detail of an animators sketch is very important and pencil smears can be a nightmare, so the smooth lines of Tombow pencils are perfect for creating the initial sketch of an animation.

Michael is an experienced and talented animator and his work is amazing, so whether you are an experienced animator or just breaking into the animation scene our Drawing Pencils are great additions to your creative suite.
