    Another go! (October 27, 2009)

    Hello everyone, my name is William Justin King and I'm a recent graduate of the Art Institute of Boston with a degree in Animation. I'm currently just working on my reel and portfolio, hoping to work in feature animation someday. I'm open to any and all criticism, so feel free to be brutal Thanks for looking!

    The next group are mostly digital doodles I've done recently; I'm driving myself to get better at painting now, digital and traditional (though I haven't been able to get back into oils for going on a month now.. soon hopefully). The face and kitty are from photos, and the bottle, door/cabinet setup, and legs are both from life. These are in chronological ordering going left to right.

    And this last one is just some sketches of my roommates' bikes.

    Neato arts man. Enjoy the painting of the waterbottles, it gives off a nice vibe. Don't forget that painting is the same as drawing ! also...more contrast in your pieces will doo lots. cheers!

    Hey Onir! Thanks for stopping by my book, I appreciate the crit. Looks like you're going in a good direction... the lighting studies are looking good, the transparent amber colored (medicine?) bottle one is definitely nice... keep it up man

    Goog - Thanks man I hear ya on painting and drawing, I really need to get more consistent with both haha.. hopefully this thread will help keep me going. I agree about more contrast, something I always have trouble with (both knowing how much to use and when to stop haha).

    hp - Hey Emily! Hope ya don't mind me calling you that Figured it's about time I tried to get back into this thing... School is going well; last year was pretty busy but it helped me learn how to manage my time a bit better. How're things going for you? Are you still working at that studio doing texturing and such?

    Toffeeliz - Thanks, glad ya liked em hehe I've gotten into the habit of writing comments like the head one to myself when I'm drawing; the perfectionist in me gets a little irked when things are off even the slightest (when using ref. of course).

    Jska - Thanks! I was pretty psyched with the way the medicine bottle turned out (happy it reads as a medicine bottle as well lol), it was the first time I had really sat down and painted something digitally in a while. Makes me happy that traditional methods definitely carry over

    --

    Back with another digital study. I would prefer to update with at least a few things, but I took a fall on my bike yesterday and though I'm not hurt in any major way, sketching is hurting my shoulder a little. I'll get more up here though, dontcha worry bout that!

    This was a funky kind of setup, and I realize now how much my ellipses suck lol. I learned that water is very hard to paint as well. As a quick side note, when I shrank the image down lines appeared between some of the marks I made; I tried covering up most of them, but if you see some random lines they're probably a result of that.

    Another go! (October 27, 2009)

    Thanks for looking!

    I get annoyed when that sort of stuff happens too, but lately I've realised it takes the fun out of it if you get overly stressed over a few marks on paper. Time for masterpieces later lol.

    I think you did well on the elipse and the glass, the shadows on the table? are a litte off around the glasses base though I think.Hope your shoulder feels ok

    Toffeeliz - Time for masterpieces later, eh? Haha that's certainly a good way to think. When my sketches don't look right to me I usually get frustrated and start over/go back to doing studies... which is why I don't have much work for myself I agree that the shadows do look a bit off now that you mention it, shoulda put a bit more thought into them. And thank ya, my shoulder has gotten better

    --

    Well, back with a few sketches. I hate the way I draw faces that aren't from ref, so I was doodling around trying to figure some things out. A big part of my goal is to get to a point where what I'm drawing are things I'd actually like to animate. I've yet to succeed in achieving any style that I feel fits what I want to do. How I can achieve such a thing is beyond me at the moment.. I probably should do studies from styles that I like instead of purely from things that are realistic. A few faces here and there and the 3 top figures on the last page are reffed from characterdesigns.com, otherwise these are just doodles out of my head (a random face or two is from the Animators Survival Guide as well.

    After these pages I got frustrated and felt brushing up on anatomy can't hurt. So I turned to Bridgman (I left my intense anatomy book at home, but Bridgman is definitely a great source either way) and did some torso studies. Took a few notes too.

    Hey. I see you have second sketchbook. It's great to finally see new updates after long time.
    I like those still life paintings. Good observation of proportions and really nice colors. After those many years of drawing my ellipses suck too . The best excercise would be to just draw tons of them on some big paper but it can be a bit boring.
    Maybe try to slow down a bit when shading. Here the cast shadow doesn't read well - http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a2...n/nsk_0002.jpg. I know it's all quick sketches but being too fast for very long time can lead to some bad habits.

    Keep posting.

    Farvus - Hey man, thanks for stopping by You're very right about me needing to slow down when I sketch.. I've got a reaally bad sense of time when I draw. Minutes feel much shorter than they really are, so I often feel as though I've been drawing for 10 minute when it's only been 5. That and trying to stay in gesture mode even in longer drawings makes things a bit harder than they should be hehe.

    --

    Back with a bunch of doodle pages; for some reason I haven't done much photo ref. work lately, outside of a few heads here and there (and the dog and figure quick studies from Ken Anderson on the page with the dude lounging). Trying to get better with quick life drawing as well as imaginative stuff, so gonna keep chugging in that direction. Got lots to work on (including animation stuff which I SHOULD be doing but am too lazy to start), so please feel free to crit the crap outta me on anything I post lol.

    For some reason I really like the way the knees at the bottom of this first one came out...

    Hello once again, back with a few things; couple of digital pieces, a pencil study, and a small animation done in Flash.

    The face is from reference, done in about 30 minutes. I was just kinda going with the flow messing around, and when I saw 30 minutes had passed I decided to stop. Kinda like how it came out; gotta keep working at that... The second piece is just a doodle.

    Another go! (October 27, 2009)
    Another go! (October 27, 2009)

    After looking at a drapery thread over in the Art Discussion (I think) forum and realizing that I need to improve my grasp of form and shape A LOT, I decided to draw a shirt I have on my door, as well as my jeans and towel in my closet

    Another go! (October 27, 2009)

    and this last one is a short animation I did as a gift to my Dad for his birthday. I still haven't given it to him, as I want to finish one for my brother as well (their birthdays are 4 days apart; last week as well ) and I'm slowly working away at that. It does have some VERY basic interactivity in the actual file, but I'm just posting the animation here. I suck at actionscript anyway

    As a quick note, this was the first primarily straight ahead (no planning poses, just drawing frame after frame and deciding as you go) animation I've done for quite a while. Was lots of fun, gonna definitely keep screwing around with it.. see what I can come up with hehe.

    Another go! (October 27, 2009)

    Thanks for looking!

    Hey man, thanks for giving feedback on my animation!

    I like the birthday clip you did, nice and simple, fluid and nice key poses. I see your doing some photoreffing up there for poses, may I suggest that you get out there and do some cafe sketching? I bring a small watercolorset in an altoids can and a brush pen with water, plus a nice inkpen.=no erasing! I even put a small metal beltclip on the back of the altoids, so i can clip it to my SB, thus I am free to use both hands. Good for standing up to capture a quick pose.
    then just start sketching away! mentally tell yourself, "this is a 10 sec one of the action of getting coffee over there, this is 30 sec of the action of reading the menu" etc etc. After you have slaughtered a few sketchbook, you'll see immense improvement, both in line quality, confidence, and color. I really cant recommend it enough! I have some on my homepage.
    And keep the crap sketchbooks! Whenever I'm feeling like I just wanna give up, I pull out a SB three books back and realize that Im improving!

    Keep It up mate!

    yo dood. youve made some serious progress man in your book. your still life studies are great, especially the cat, keep it up man, drawing from life is so damn essential to.. to.. to-everything! im subscribed. rock on!

    edit: this is great. brilliant example of what im talking about. you already know 4 quick rows of quick pencil dashing is enough to render the backdrop to all the lighter shadows present. . all a learning experience, and its looking good
    my book o' doodles

    Interested in some Team CHOW? i'm all for it :3
