    Cute cats ^^ with a hint of wildness
    I did notice you liked cats from your previous animations
    I especially like the one slightly outlined in yellow at the top
    It looks a bit like a fox

    The second watercolor of the temple is beautiful
    Can an animation preserve this style?
    If you want to explore alternative shapes but keep some regularity
    try the circle or oval maybe

    So the spirit of the archdruid is still around...
    Things indeed look hopeless for 38...
    Unless she learns to fight spirits...
    Good plot suspense!

    ^^ I love those cats. and they wer in a real playfull mood sunday. the red/yellow one was sneaking around like a fox.
    im still not happy with the temple. as for keeping the style; I know a few tricks so it can prolly work. I have a 'cut out' programm workable in a 3d plain; you can get nice effects like swaying leaves and stuff from just using one picture. its not real real, but no one will ever no
    ye. gonna try circles and more natural shapes.
    ^^ glad you like the story.
    also. I might hve bought another anatomy book. I know.. I know. I had too many already. but it makes me happy Oo. anywa. did the same I do with all the books so far; read the preface and go back to drawing some stuff from ref.. oh well. ;P

    Thanks for the comments on my sketchbook. keep up the good work and try some more studies to improve. The traditional stuff here looks pretty cool.

    eh thanks
    anyway, messing with blender's new sculpt mode.
    not really getting it right yet; but seems pretty neat.
    for those that don't know blender go get it!
    free 3d software... really.

    Hi! I'm not really a fan of anime / manga stuff, except few things, so I can't really make a crit on the style, but it's definitelt nice to see you practice anatomy. Your characters will be much better when you'll have understood some shapes of the human body! Keep it up!

    hey thank for dropping by my sketchbook, youve got some pretty cool stuff going on, but what i noticed straight away is that those watercolour/ink drawings up there are infinatley better than any of your digital storyboards. but more expressive.

    i think the thing with your digitals is that you try and go for a painterly look but you still put those deaddenning black lines around everything.
    a good exercise i can think of would be try not to use a single black line in your next storyboard. by all means use dark colours for shadows but the black line just kills it dead.

    youve got some good body language and expressions going on in those colour line sketches and you are definatley improving compared to your first page.
    so keep it up i say,
    toodles.
    wonderous visual delights await you through these many portals!!:

    Nice stuff man The panther on the first page and the watercolors are great! The storyboard figures could use a bit more attention. I know they are supposed to be quick for the purpose of story boarding, but I think if you flesh them out a bit more like you do your other drawings they'll grab a lot more attention and trigger more imagination. Keep up the good work

    @clochette: been @ anatomy for over 12 yearz now.. get better when I practise. but leave it to rot for a few weeks and its like back at square 1 :p

    @littleman: hey, thanks. thats a great idea with no lines. I can use the practice for tonal stuff too :p I tried redoing my last storyboard image. will do a few more.
    @zhonked: yeah. getting there. need to get the ideas down fast first though.


    arr.. stuff from the last 2 days. some posemaniacs.. 30 sec not-on-advanced-mode. as suggested and next to eachother.. lot less work then having to layer during drawing.

    mudblood from the start
    not unhappy about this. but I'm gonna haveta see what a finished work will look like. one of the reason I went for an animish style is that its easy to read with a general public. don't want to have a too much of an obstacle for ppl to follow the story..

    The animator in you is showing up in the posemaniacs studies! Lines of action ^^
    When I commented on your previous posemaniacs I had only seen the last image
    because I was looking at the storyboard above it when the gif was playing oO
    You didn't set it to loop

    Your anatomy studies turn out pretty well, good structural exaggeration.

    I like the style and design of untitled-2 in your project studies.
    May I ask you add a bit of text description along with your concept art?
    I will help both understanding and commenting.

    I also like the style of panel 25 on post #56.
    I know it's hard to find a quick style for a storyboard, I'm always changing my mind in mine...

    I'll ask again for a text area in your panels for extra information.
    It will also make it clearer to the zipping-by visitors that it's a storyboard.
