    Nice sketchbook, you've got a lot of variety in here. Good life drawings, too. I would say overall, try to pay more attention to proportion. Some of your figures are looking mushy. Try blocking out a simple skeleton gesture first that establishes where the joints and bones are in relation to each other.

    Hey there!

    I really enjoyed looking at what you have going on here. The progression since just last November is very impressive. I especially liked the figure drawings in your last post. The forshortening and movement are excellent, and your line quality on the blacklines is superb.

    I agree with KelsM about paying attention to proportions in your figures, but that sort of general advice is something we can all use. In particular, watch out for faces. Consistantly I noticed very long noses and low mouths. Fine for monkeys, not for people. A general proportional rule is that the eyes fall halfway down the head. The bottom of the nose is halfway between the eyes and the chin. the mouth is halfway between the bottom of the nose and the chin. Just shortening up your nose a bit, and raising the mouths will help a lot.

    You're doing some great work, and I really do look forward to seeing more of it.
    Keep at it!

    KelsM Nice sketchbook......try to pay more attention to proportion. Some of your figures are looking mushy. Try blocking out a simple skeleton gesture first that establishes where the joints and bones are in relation to each other.
    You know I really haven't thought much of it but I think I really don't put enough thought into the mechanics of many of my subjects. I will definitely be doing a good amount of more studies with more thought process behind the relationships between joints and bones. Thanks for the comment and suggestions

    I think I'm having some old habits that don't wanna die lol but I totally agree. Faces tend to be a weaker point in my drawing knowledge too. I really hope after these few weeks are over I plan to do a ton of facial studies. I really appreciate this input


    Been super busy lately as this is the two week crunch line for my animations as one is due finished by Monday and the other by next Friday. My life has become class, eat, sleep, and animate pld:

    The first one is just a sketch I did the other day in art history and the other was a concept for the Shapeshifter CHOW but didn't get the time to go further on it. I plan to go further though once I get some time. I was going with a woman assassin to hawk type of thing. Oh and I posted my current update on my animation that is due Monday. A little info behind this is it's one part of four parts. I'm part 3, and this will be compiled with the other parts and played to a live orchestra (erie philharmonic). It's all painted in corel, each frame file named, compiled in monkey jam (an animation program) then edited together in windows movie maker, and all on one laptop there seems to be a lag issue in some parts that we can not figure out so I will be recompiling everything tomorrow in aftereffects as we think it's a rendering issue with windows movie maker. all comments and thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    I myself am studying animation but the school that I attend focuses more on 3d animation, so I try to stay balanced by practicing 2d on the side. I enjoyed your water color paintings. I started using water colors recently and I've learned it is a very hard medium to use.

    This is another animation work in progress being done this semester. It's animated using photoshop cs, monkeyjam (a free simple animation/xsheet program) and windows movie maker. All thoughts are welcome

    Hey Tea Drinker!

    I really enjoyed the animations! My wife and I watched the philarmonic one together, and she said it was really pretty. Keep up the great work!

    Really nice, quiet interlude... The transition between when he meets the butterfly, and when he chases it deeper into the woods is a little shakey. It seems like you went on to th next thing before finishing what you were working on.

    Keep up the great work, I can't wait to see how this turns out.

    Oh yeah, I also thought the music went very well with the story, and its flow and movement.
