    i think you've got great potential and good digital colouring skills

    my favourite piece is the first one. i think you should definitely finish it...itd be an interesting portfolio piece. and yes..manga does appear to be an influence....my teacher once told me that employers hate to see manga in a portfolio but screw him lol. i like your stuff and i definitely want to see more.

    just remember man...you can only get better


    and finally heres a website that you can use or not. its got random poses if you ever have a minute or 2 to sketch. its just for practice but its good

    www.posemaniacs.com/blog

    i'll catch you later.

    No no, he's right. I'd much rather work myself into something new. Anime's becoming really tiresome to my eye. Thanks for the URL by the way.

    Anyhow, here's a wip. I've been away from my house so I can't really upload the bulk of figure work that i've done thusfar. Hopefully, I can do that later today.

    The wip looks promising. I like your style in the first post, its not o t t in your face manga, which is good.

    The stranger things appear the more real they usually are.

    Looking good so far, my only pick is that your colours are too muted. Liven them a little more

    I'll pay more attention to that,
    thanks for the comments everyone.

    Here's a bunch of things from the first few days of life drawing class. More coming,

    Good life drawing studies and painting..what can i say draw a s#$tload and you'll get really good. Curious, what school are you attending?
    As I once heard...everyone has got 10,000 bad drawings in them. The faster you get them out the better you are off. Good luck!

    ...a perpetual plan for discovery days,where everyone can take part in "purposeless play".

    careful with the length fo the arms.
    also, maybe look into doing some studies of fabric and folds. just to see how theyc can show the form underneath a bit better, adn take out some of the stiffness in your folds. ;P

    Long time no see everyone.

    I've gotten through the first semester at NYU Tisch and i'm pretty excited to hit the break - which means I've got a month to beat the crap out of my art. To be quite honest, the program at NYU hasn't been exactly what I thought it would be... Its known for being a film school, a good film school. The problem is that they've got a ton of writing classes, and a ton of craft courses but hardly any foundation arts. As an animator, I feel kind of secondary. There is a fine arts component to NYU, but its in Steinhardt, some other component of the school strangely unrelated to mine. In short - it is an extremely complicated process to get any kind of art training other than the courses directly related to my concentration.

    I have to slink into SVA to get my quick fix of figure drawing, because I can't really rely on posemaniacs alone (even though its damn helpfull).

    It's just become apparent to me that I have to handle my training independently. And between my required courses - its hard to fit in the time. I really don't know what to do with myself ;O Maybe somone out there has an idea.

    I've been sketching a shit load. There's a bunch of things I havn't scanned or painted yet - i'll probably get those up throughout the week. But for now I'm just going to throw up a few more wips, this or that - and three short animations i've done.

    Animations: (you'll need the latest flash player, I think)

    This was my application piece to the schools I applied to. Days of Thunder

    First assignment for Intro to Animation Days of Thunder
    http://neolight.deviantart.com/art/A...agger-68005021

    WiP I'm working on now Days of Thunder
    http://media.putfile.com/selfpo

    Anyhow, I made a contact at EA games - some senior producer. If I can muster a compelling portfolio, I'm hoping I can initiate an internship and get my foot in the door. But only if.

    It would be great to understand what that industry has to offer in terms of jobs so I can set my crosshairs.

    Well thanks marj,

    Its been said that my colors could use some livening, - its probably true because I tend to keep all of my colors on the gray side (a bad habbit?)

    Very nice start for a sketch! I'm digging your charcoal studies! (mostly that one with the keyboard beside). The thing that I miss is contrast in the images. Maybe it's just my screen. Keep 'em coming!

    Thanks may,

    Checked the stores around here, they just dont seem to carry a whole lot, but there's an abundance of coyote's and weasels.
    So unfortunatley I am without a scanner, so I can't post my studies atm. I'll try and build more digitally.

    I started something just now, we'll see where it goes. I think the bridge is a bit off, don't really have much of an idea atm. I'm just going to try and dig in.

    Here are some sketches/studies. Sorry I had to take them with a camera, i'll replace them with scans in due time. Some of them are from pose maniacs, others from head or reference.

    More on the way.

    New WiP, approx four hours in.

    Remembering good old starsiege tribes - years of fun. The game sucked my life away.

    Posting an update. Trying to understand the bg here, I dont want it to fight with the foreground.

    Going to find some way to texture the flying base.

    Updated this a little. I've lost sense of the background so i'll have to really dig in there and figure it out. Flying base needs a texture.

    Second Semester started off pretty heavy. I think i've rebounded though, so its time for more arting.

    I love this one, you've got the motion down incredibly well here. Aside from the most recent piece, I think many of us would love to see your previous uploads finished off more.

    You have some excellent potential for some amazing final pieces, don't let them dwindle and collect dust before you set them aside!

    Thanks blighted, as of the moment i'm saving those loose sketches as spring boards for when I dont quite have anything in my head.

    I have the beginnings of something else here. I have to pitch a story concept for a screen play in my story telling strategies class and I decided that I would present some visual concepts in addition to my premise and synopsis.

    So this weekend im going to try and crank out as many paintings as I can to provide the flavor of the world that i'm working with. Here's number 1: (you'll recognize the character)

    Sorry to say that his arms seem abnormally short there. There's also the issue of making stronger contrasts so that the shape of the armour etc, the shape of the face is distinguishable (but I'm thinking that this is a work in progress so). Also get rid of that little squiggle on the bottom left. My eye was drawn straight to it because of how straight the vertical cut-off on the right side of it is.

    Keep going!! Go go go go go!!!
