    Hey Marc!

    Your illustrations are good; they communicate well in telling a story. But be sure to keep up on the foundations; are you doing studies and life drawings too?

    I've been very slack and lazy the past couple months. Not sure why, I think it's to do with comfort zones and a lot of things being "same old same old". So I'm just trying to push myself back into the swing of things by uploading a few life studies from uni, and a couple commission works for a friend.

    After this I'm going to eat something then browse the internet for some inspiring images: I'm looking for some images of tribal peoples and their sculptures (or anything that looks interesting really, like the work of the Incas) just for inspiration and ideas for a commission I'm working on.

    After that, it's "no more getting up at midday" and "start studies at 6:30am"

    -Marc

    Like this SB. I'll subscribe to it and see if I can give you some critiques in the future, for now though, the sandman calls.

    Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Nobody made good art by coloring in between the lines.

    Been doing quite a bit of drawing, it's more the mountain of scanning that I'm not keen on doing. Just thought I'd upload these two though.

    I've decided to start practicing caricatures. First image is a self caricature from mirror reference (then photo taken afterwards just for comparison). Less than 5 minutes I think.

    I want to stop being so shy with my exaggerations, which I feel is weighing heavily on my cartoons. So I'm just trying to go nutty with celebrity caricatures (these are my first attempts really), while practicing retaining the identity of the subject.

    Constructive crit *very much encouraged and appreciated*

    Edit: and don't worry about accidentally offending me about the self caricature or anything. Be brutally honest, I can take it, and want to hear it.

    Thanks

    Heh, nice. Jack Black is totally recognisable.

    As for the self-portrait: This might just be a matter of the photo being from a lower angle than the sketch, but the nose doesn't seem similar enough to me. In the sketch, it's a ski-slope nose, but in the photo, there is a bit of a bend(/mild roman nose).

    Just going on the photo, I would have made the following exaggerations: mouth high up, eyes closer together and more droopy, perhaps thinner/different-shaped lips (though that might just be from the photo -- hard to tell if it wasn't the identical thing you were working from). Maybe a flatter head but more hair, too.

    So, here's a few drawings knocking about in my sketchbooks for a while. A few moleskine stuff... a few A4 books.

    Small update.

    Signed up to learn-to-draw.com... usually a URL that would have me cringe, but I came across some very helpful caricature tutorials on there. I'm still going to adapt it to my own style, but the pointers I was receiving are very universal, I'd recommend anyone wanting to go into caricature to give the site a looksee (they have small portions of tutorials available so you can get a taste of what the site offers before the one off payment).

    Anyway, a caricature that I did at 4am. It's really bad, but I *DID* learn a lot from it, from here on it's just practice practice practice. I *did* frequently refer to the example caricature on-site (this was part of a tutorial, see), so not all "elements" are my own in that sense, but looking at the example was only done as a last resort: Working hard on developing skills is encouraged, but I really just wanted to enjoy the process too, so cut myself some slack.

    Little clown girl (yes, girl) that I did in a boring class today to stop me from falling asleep after the 3 hour sleep (i can't function without sleep haha).

    Also, a uni project in Google Sketchup / Deep Exploration, an abstraction concept that we have to change into a realtime 3D environment. Just a small one, mainly as an introduction to 3D modeling (and to some students, computers )... it's interesting, and has opened me up to some new possibilities of design processes.

    Thanks man!

    Here's the result of an Adobe Illustrator Shirt design assignment from Uni. We were assigned a quote (mine was Andy Warhol's "I am a deeply superficial person"), and had to orient a design around it.

    So... I've been daydreaming about what it might be like to work at Weta more and more recently (lol ) And slapped myself in the face, realizing the only way I'll get there is by painting and drawing.

    So when I came home from work tonight, I decided to start painting from life with my acrylics. Here's a very crappy apple, it looks more edible in real life. But it's a start, quite fun too. My girlfriend is talented with painting (though she won't admit it), and was kind enough to kind of help me out with the good and bad habits of painting, which I'm completely new to.

    Gave me a chance to try out my new chinese calligraphy brushes, which are very fun to paint with. About 45 minutes, maybe 1 hour... Has put me back on my uni work a little.

    Nice interpretation of "I am a deeply superficial person"!
    I find the text flow confusing though. I read "I am a deeply laiclfrepus person" before I realized I had to jump back to top and start reading in the other direction.

    My sketchbook contains cartoon studies and Pokémon.

    Thanks. Yeah, unfortunately you're not the only one to say that! ^^; Too bad I handed it in already. But I learned something from it! Cheers.

    Was interesting actually presenting the work, people had seen the design when we all looked around the room at everybodys work, nobody expected it to have been drawn by a guy though.

    Anyway, another random mess-around with the chinese calligraphy brush and india ink. Off to bed now. Thinking of looking up traditional japanese / chinese art... One of the things I've wanted to take on with my drawings is still using very bold, possibly black outlines like in my old cartoons, but not using too much to clutter the image, I think looking into japanese / chinese art might help that: http://www.vetmed.lsu.edu/images/S00...ustang%201.jpg

    Something similar to that, just getting to grips with "suggestive" lines.

    - Tombow markers x2 (lighter and darker grey).
    - Staedtler 0.3 pigment liner
    - SENNELIER INK (Carmine 635)
    - Chinese calligraphy brush for carmine ink areas.

    A rock monster who smashes things with its rock (originally was going to hold a spear, but he looks like he wants to smash things)... Also headbutts things to death with his rock-brow, taken as an idea from the Headbangers of Tim Schaeffer's "Brutal Legend", which I'm incredibly excited about.

    Any tips, hints and feedback on using brush markers (or anything really) would be very appreciated.

    3-week animation assignment at Uni. Was incredibly fun but with the other 3 papers and 2 part time jobs I wish I could have worked more on it.

    Great stuff man! I really like your cartooning and characters... I'll keep watching.

    edit- Yeah screw that, your environmental stuff is just as good. I love your composition and sense of scale you get. Jealous.

    Hi, thanks you two I've been out of the swing for too long now, just trying to get back into it... These two were very short... both together about 30-45 mins tops (sluggish right?).

    Cheers!

    Hey Marc

    I think your stylized/graphic work is getting pretty good, keep pushing it.
    You could take this approach even when working from reference/life, simplify and stylizing it. This will give your work great personality.
