    High school adventures (Coffee and donuts, July 2!)

    What's up!

    I'm a sophomore in HS. I'd like to be an animator or storyboard artist someday. I also dig character design. I have no formal training (I'm Rob Liefeld!). So I'm pretty much self taught, but I'd like to go to college and have someone...teach me stuff.

    Anyway, this is my second sketchbook. Here's a link to my first one because contrast creates interest.

    Well enough talk. Here's some studies I did yesterday.

    I felt this pose had a lot of energy so I tried to capture it in the lines.

    That's all for now. Please comment!

    Thanks for dropping by my sketckbook
    Some good studies here. I do think that the character loses form in some of the action poses though. Keep at it!

    Your improvement is really big.
    Keep up studies and don't forget to do some work from your imagination.

    ihatemexies: Thanks for the support!

    Rotor: I rushed through the figure sketches since it's hard to really study a rough sketch anyway, especially with all the strokes.

    Mr. Juicy: Thanks. I do some imagination stuff but I'm trying to focus more on studies and observations from life because a lot of animation schools are stressing those things (not the studies, but definitely observations and life drawings). And when designing characters Chen Yi Chang says its best to research and ref your topic because otherwise you just end up drawing the stereotypes in your head. Drawing from imagination is important (and I'm practicing them after my studies to apply what I've learned) but it's not a big priority right now.

    Hey! Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook.

    I can't really see anything wrong (could be because i'm sort of a beginner) but i'd recommend you too do some quick poses from http://www.posemaniacs.com.

    Imaginary: Haha, I just finished doing a bunch of gestures from posemaniacs when I saw your post.

    Saw some Vilppu gesture tutorials online. They really helped. My gestures used to be really chaotic and sketchy. Now I'm trying to capture the idea as clearly and with as few lines as possible.
