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