    Wow, Zweit that's really cool. It's helpfull to me at least!

    For your gestures: It helps me usually to sketch in the ribcage (approximately, at least. ;P) and some circles for the hips. The space in between is easier to determine then, if that makes sense. Also I get a better idea of the 3 dimensionality and how the body contour changes when the torso turns, for example.

    Traditional media isn't that bad... you just can't ctrl-z. With colored pencils, my teacher told us to make tiny circles with the side of the lead, pressing lightly. She did it in layers and blended with it but you can do it harder for a stronger or flat color. Uh, yes. So varying the pressure... is important. The small circles part makes the color uniform, you don't get those lines...

    Teehee. I rely on Adobe too much.

    I gotta get back in gear.

    That second to last page in this post? Yeah, I need to do ALOT of studying before I do a full pic of that.

    ALSO, TO EVERYONE READING THIS POST: Don't tell anyone what today was.

    Very nice update today It's nice to see you're learning the structure of the human body. I am also working on this. The only thing I would suggest for your tonal pieces is that it's not quite filled up. You can really get more out of it by pushing the shading as far as it will go. What I mean by that is to make sure that your tones are really and truly matching up. Darkest darks are darkest, lightest lights are lightest. The shading I'm seeing is very tentative and light. Shading is about cross hatching and layering and playing around with stuff. So go nuts! Do some shading studies and play with the shades and highlights and see what I mean.

    Sweet cxharcters again! Great style on those, keep at them. Good studies too, ol' kevin chen is the man. Like Darlene said keep an eye on the tones / values. Your teminator line is way to dark compared to the highlight, which itself goes over the whole front? Something reall simple that helps tone pop is putting down a very light tone over all the lightest spots so your lightest tones is not white. then just erase some or leave small gaps for the real bright highlights.
    Keep up the great work - er what day is today?

    Lol, 21 is the legal age here. I doubt I'll ever get into alcohol at all, really. But if I ever do, (when I'm legal) getting drunk is a no-no for me.

    Got some life drawing done today.

    Also listened to two lectures relating to sequential art. One about storyboarding, and another about using reference without it becoming a crutch. I know, too early for these, but I had nothing else to do, so why not?

    Hey, thanks for checking out my sketchbook!

    Consider cleaning up your line work a bit, it is a tad messy. Try making your lines long and smooth, rather than short and choppy. I would advise using a smoother medium which will assist in making longer cleaner strokes such as 6B+ Graphite, Carbon, or Charcoal.

    I would also advise thoroughly studying Anatomy, most of your sketches seem to be absent of it and I think it could really help improve your work.

    Good luck!

    OK, sorry about this, but I kinda lost interest in the scarecrow, so this is all I got.

    In other news, I finally drew up something that alot of people have probably done before. (Got the idea a while ago from one of the mentoring threads I was lurking in, but it wasted months to actually draw an actual pic from the ideas I doodled down.) You should be able to tell what they are. I got 3 more to do. Seriously, something creeps me out about the rabbit's clothes. Don't ask what that crap is on Alice's wrists. I have no idea.

    Man! You're so good with cartoons. That's awwwesome. Just keep at it, you're doing amazing! Try and make a smoother shade by being more patient with yourself and taking the time to fill in the white inbetween each line.. It really makes a difference! Just don't overdo it like me!

    OK, I got some books this week: All 3 of the Eisner books, Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators, On Directing Film, and Basic Perspective for Comics and Illustration. Tomorrow I should have stuff from some workshops that they're doing at that Comic Arts Forum thingy.

    Yep, went to day one of the workshops. Found out that you just choose one and stick with it for the whole day. Instead I just migrated through the building and checked out each one for a few minutes. The last one I went to and stayed at was the one by Chris Sasaki. I had no idea what was going on, though. Something about redesigning Jekyll and Hyde. Couldn't really think of anything. All the people I saw there were awesome. I'mma go back tomorrow and actually stay in one workshop. Probably at Sasaki's (sounds like a restaurant, lolz) again to try designing a character a second time. And with an actually idea of what to do.

    And I still didn't recognize any freshmen anywhere. Not there or at the life drawing at Wallin. WHY? Am I blind or are they just lazy?!

    All the life drawing I did today was a mixed bag of varied results. I noticed that I always seem to undershoot the head.

    ALSO: I know a little about the concept of "good shapes" and "evil shapes", but hate the idea. That's not a good thing, is it?

    Cool stuff - workshop sounds sick! Digging the last set of stuff. With the life drawings, try mark the head and foot position 1st and then just do some quick measurements with the head to get a rough idea of its size. Then start the gesture and stuffs with the head size in mind (or like me go draw the head again after I realize its too small)
    Keep it up!

    Feh. I've been crapping up lately. NO excuses! IgottagettoworkIgottagettowork!

    Went to the workshop a second time, overslept and ended up 45 minutes late, so I missed the lecture (again). There was a thing on caricatures on Thursday, missed most of that, too because I left for the bus immediately after I head about it (right after an acceptable dinner).

    Oh, yeah. Only one week left and I can go back to Springfield (MA) until January! YEAH!

    Anyway, being the last week, Friday was the last day for the Life Drawing for now, so I guess I'll just do clothed people till it returns.

    Also, being near the end, apparently the models started getting jokey. The other day, Mr. Paycheck started trying the snap himself in half (posted that stuff on Halloween), and Friday, I decided to go to Montgomery Hall, because that was the only place I hadn't gone to. It started normal, but after a break whomever it was showed up in a Darth Vader mask and cloak...seriously.

    I didn't expect to see something this stupid, and definitely not at the Animation/Game Design building. If anything, I would have expected this from Norris, the sequential art place. Whatever.

    Also, I've been looking into John Kricfalusi's blog today. The main reason was because of his reputation of being "highly opinionated". Whatever that's supposed to mean. I never really got into his cartoons. (Ren and Stimpy was my least favorite Nicktoon back then.) But upon watching this, I think I might have missed out on something.
