Shamandalie's sham and a lie.
My name is still Amirah - but i've just turned 23!(it's 2012 OMG!) I am currently working as a rotoscope artist in Dneg. (I have forgotten 85% of my animation skills but i animate masks really well ) I have been away for the longest time - and for the most time, I have been working on my demo reel (well, to get the job) -before i got the job there. I'm happy to say that i've managed to work for the coolest movies out there. But due to the fact that I've been only thinking of work and my silly personal/financial problems - I've totally neglected my drawing/painting and i plan to change that - thus the resurrection of this sketchbook! AWWW YEAHHHHH
HEY GUYS! These are old stuff. To see my newer works, please go to the latest page.
My name is Amirah. I'm 19 and i've just graduated from my design course. I specialise in animation, but we learnt a whole lot there, from motion graphics, digital imaging to crazy 3D stuff. I've always been a neither-here-nor-there kind of person. Meaning jack-of-all-trades and master of none. @_@
I fell in love with painting digitally recently so i really want to pick it up. Problem is i'm really not that good at drawing now, but i hope to improve as much as i can. You guys are really great people and the works here really keep me inspired to be better. So here goes!

Some more sketches. Yes! I am Bridgeman's desciple(<---is that how you spell it? @.@)
And yes, i lost my pencil. and i cant seem to find another to continue drawing. WAH. i'm scared of using a medium i cant undo with. pens are scary. LOL.
Good start, you are doing those studies nicely
try posemaniacs and just draw. Have a kind of B-files drawing book when you feel you are not getting anything worth showing so you can draw without feeling you have to achieve something (this helps for me as stress reliever) (besides you draw MORE)

Thank you Nettle_Mountain for the comment! Yeppy, posemaniacs is love! I tend to buy many many sketchbooks and forget about them later so now i still have 4 sketchies that are empty.
I felt like learning some paint stuff so i'm giving a go at The Peer Project V2 for now.
This my bally!
i feel depressed.
i feel very sad nowadays cause i'm not able to draw as much as i used to. I *finally*have a permanent 8.30am - 6.30pm job, and though i enjoy the fact that i can finally save money to buy a new com, i'm almost always exhausted when the day ends. and i gotta sleep early so that i could be alert the next day. (i teach kids by the way.)
so i hope that something right now is better than nothing. but dont worry, when the weekend comes, DRAW AWAYY!!! i'm so looking forward to that.
THE LEG. i dabbled with a pen and chinese brush too. @_@
hey man don't be down because of having little time, i'm sure there's ways to improve that. first of all, you need to refill your motivation gauge by listening to bobby chiu's podcast: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=uJowNFmuul8
after that you'll be inspired as hell. one thing that i started doing is always asking myself "do i really prefer this to drawing?", when it comes to watching tv, eating, reading and stuff like that, of course the answer is no, so by making such decisions you can actually clean your day of unnecessary stuff and this way get more time to do what you love.
keep up the studies mate, they help tons!

algenpfleger thank you so much for that link and your motivation. I've totally understood now, and even if i'm busy, i will try to squeeze at least a little bit of time to draw or paint everyday!
here are more bridgeman studies!
Yay....that's the spirit!
Keep on drawing and practicing. Your studies gettin better and better. Try to get more confident with your lines. instead of 10 short strokes make one long stroke. ...try to understand the flow of the body.....e.g. you can easily draw an arm with 3-4 lines when your aware of the flow of the arm...
Keep em comin

Thank you for the encouragement and critique Delmar!
Wheeeeee~~ these are my last few studies for bridgeman. Most probably gonna try out digital painting now. But of course i will still continue drawing!
yo man, good to see you keeping up those studies, they're annoying but they help. remember to draw your own knees, hands, feet from life once you know what parts to look for, it teaches you a lot more than just copying from the books mkay?

Hi! nice to see you doing bridgman. If your soaking it up that it'll be very helpful to you. I've experienced that not one anatomy book can solve all problems, try some other ones like Andrew Loomis and hogarth. I'm just saying if you get sick of bridgman there are other options and you can bounce back and forth.
Creatures are looking kinda of asymmetrical right now. Try to mirror lines when you draw so if you draw one side don't wait to draw the other side until you make you're way around the creature or figure.
Yes and if you draw a anatomy leg, do you own next and see if you remember anything about it from the book.
Good advice here from others too, good luck!
