    The chalk highlights are really helping to give your drawings more life.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Some really nice work! I like your observational sketches a lot - the ones from the Botanical gardens are great.

    I'm not disappearing. Been in a bit of an art slump and avoiding CA lately.

    *is shamed*

    The good news is, my local life drawing group has resumed it's activity for the year and I have absolutely no valid excuse (ie: no major assessment) not to go each week!

    Here's the first batch. Less rusty than I feared, but still plenty of room for improvement everywhere.

    Ooookay, so that was sorta a false restart. I got sick (still don't know what with, possibly Glandular Fever if the damn bloodtests would yield some result other than "equivocal"!). Anyway, I quite literally couldn't draw for a few weeks, but here's a smattering of stuff as I'm trying to get a routine going again. Hope there are no more interruptions!

    Nice update! Still surprised by how you draw live people so fast. (I'm so terribly slow ). This one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1233991551 has cool potential for a finished piece (plz)! Looking good!

    Some stuff!
    I've been in a very graphic/cartoonish kind of mood recently. Hooked on Shane Glines' stuff.

    i really enjoy your character work (the guy on rollerblades, the little fairy). The colors are simple, the lines are simple. It is wonder basic character creation. i would like to see a bunch of characters together in an environment!

    help me become better!

    every time i come here and see cartoony figures, i almost forget you can do realistic figure drawing this well too. so many good lines in there, you're very good at it... have you ever tried animating people of a less cutsey calibur? it would be nice to see some mold breaking, and you have the figure knowledge

    mohd al mahdi Cheers!

    aliciad33 Yeah, I gotta work on that 'environment' and composition thing. Just been having fun drawing folks lately. Thanks.

    Gren Thanks. It's not really on my list of priorities. Less cutesy possibly means more work, haha! I guess it depends on the story/characters, could try it one day.

    Kelly Cheers. I've been picking at some stuff, but mainly just taking a break after the end of the project last November. Will be getting into 3D this semester though, as of Monday.

    --

    I gotta break out of this single-character-bland-background thing I've been doing lately, but it's just been too much fun. Less play, more work!

    Yesterday I learned of the silly term "Orcabetty" and thus became inspired to draw my character, Sour, in some Rockabilly type fashion.

    sup bleu, awesome updates! really like the illustrative figures and even though it's cartoony i think it's really refreshing to see as most SB's try to come up with moody or hyper realistic pieces

    something about your characters has a lot of personality, movement and rhythm, great non static poses!

    not sure if u should be so negative about last fig drwng session, because i feel that u've captured the most important information which is what the figure's pose was, and there's still a lot of great movement in the figures u capture, it's like ur very true to ur subject =>

    I think using diff mediums such as charcoal would really help, since you could use it so many different ways, whether its a fine line, flat stroke or even softening of the edge by gradating the values; it would help with pushing the forms of the figure (but then again i personally tend to emphasize on the line sketch over rendering since a good line sketch can read just as well as a fully rendered sketch)

    great job on the last fig drawing session!

    Orcabetty? LOL So much comedy in our SSG what the hell? Very entertaining. I love this style:http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1235395696. Very nice movement in the bleu and rouge pencil sketches in that post. Working the opposing curves idea very well. Those figure drawings are very fluid. In that last drawing I like how you've described the torso to pelvic region twist as well as the gestural quality on the leg supporting the weight of the figure.

    Funny you should say that about the twist, Eon, cos I usually have a lot of trouble drawing twists in the torso for some reason. Thanks both of you for the encouragement.

    Here's some doodleblah. I think I was technically trying to study without actually studying anything. Rather testing my memory and perception of what weight is like. Besides, fat ppl are fun to draw and skinny folks are overrated. And yes, I did go to see Watchmen last night and yes I dug Dr. Manhattan so he popped up in a sketch, albeit doesn't really look like him and he's all crooked n' shit.

    Ooh lucky duck, how was the movie?!

    I really like the girl drawn in charcoal on the top right of ur last post, b/c the figure has a nice silhouette from the surrounding block in and also the face has a little bit of constructive anatomy showing through, great job!

    Only crit here is to do more constructive anatomy once you have the gesture captured, go on top and do a more constructive approach so that the forms are reading well (which will tighten the pose a bit). It's like Glen Vilppu's approach in his Drawing Manual where he starts off with loose gestural lines and then works more on the volume and forms as the drawing progresses.

    As for turns and twist, again Glen Vilppu is the man when it comes to that, he has these great exercise for understanding form and movement. I think he is originally an animator just like urself.

    Keep 'em great sketches coming!

    Hey bleu! Good to see some more stuff from you! Like snootchy mentioned before, you really captured the forms of the figures you sketched.

    Fuck yeah! Dr. Manhattan! I fuckin loved Watchmen. I'm totally getting the graphic novel. What did you think? Glad it inspired you to draw.

    Your Manhattan looks younger and even more Zen like. I was going to re-read the novel before giving the movie a look then I remembered how thick it was...lol but by the time I get to see the movie that shouldn't be an issue.

    Nice sketches I like the graphic portrait best, emotive and energetic. Good hands throughout the post as well.

    Afterthought... should I be putting a nudity warning in this thread title or what? I think I take it for granted that it doesn't bother other folks just like it doesn't bother me.

    hay there bleupencil! fellow animator ^^
    nah, you make animations, your an animator :p that's how it works.
    I really like those pencil tests. its a bit of a shame I see no storyboards to crit first though. maybe you'd already had them critted?
    anyway, we're trying to start up a stb circle here:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...=142985&page=3
    I'm thinking maybe a thread just for stb's somewhere would be good too..
    about the animation itself. did you ever hear of the 12 animation principels?
    (I think there's some more myself, but ok..)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/12_basi...s_of_animation
    anyway, one of m is show changes big. some shots you have in there, like facial closeups, I dont really read well as a change in expression. there's a bit short for that too I guess, but also you need to 'pass through' your end point to return to it, just to make it clearer.
    anyway, real nice stuff here; the sketches too. didnt know you could link a youtube movie either. I'm gonna do that sometime..

    >>SKETCHBOOK. you'll visit me. I'll visit you, we'll have a tea party. with arts and shit. it'll be dreamy. stop by.

    Another fine cartoony design in CA. Good study attitude and something really different from the others are animations! How cool is that? Love it.

    Yo Bleu, cool updates!

    I think the reason why when cleaning up lines is because it looks like your tracing it, and that is the case but I think it helps to think of it as a guide but not strictly needed to be followed. Where all those things we think about when doing a sketch; such as line weight, thickness, softness still applies even to a tighter sketch and helps to give it that visual interest.

    I like the skin tone, good starting point for a base tone, think u should keep pushing it, maybe with some ref. Saw that color tutorial, did u get how he was using the slider, still baffles me?! Personally I always liked the color picker in Painter or in PS when u pushing the color box, because you just have to pick the right color family u want, then decide how saturated the color is and the value (well this could be done in the undersketch/paint so less to think about)

    Luv ur animations, ur going to have to teach me some of those basic prinicples or good starting point for animation someday!!
