    Winter break! It's time to get busy.



    I did a master copy of Leonardo's back drawing and drew it next to Bridgman's.



    Some hands.

    Some stylized and semi-realistic figure studies from ref.

    Various character designs.



    ^The face ended up looking like Jack Kirby's women. I guess it incidentally became a tribute to him.



    Lots of straight to curves in this one. Looks very Timm-y.



    Victorian era woman. I tried to push her dress, but there was very little to exaggerate anyway. They were simply huge.



    To be colored in Photoshop over the next couple of days.

    Please comment!

    I see a nice improvement since the first page!
    Your line becomes more confident, be careful with the proportions though.
    Keep on the studies to analyze arms or legs but keep practicing whole figures too, to understand how the entire stuff works! Nothing more to say, good job!

    After my studies I usually do a couple of figure studies then I sketch some arms, legs, and figures from imagination. The ones from ref will always be be better than the ones from memory, but the memory ones help me review what I've learned. Thanks for stopping by!

    Still inking and coloring my other designs, but I got this Two-Face character turnaround done today.





    I expect it would be a pain to animate if it was a real design.

    Thanks, saa!

    --------

    Here's a couple stuff from today. I'm taking a break to scan and upload here, but the day isn't finished so I'm still hard at work!



    Master copies of legs with the original artists circled.



    Two-Face head turns...



    The finished colors for the Jack Kirby pilot lady. Not really fond of how it turned out, but then again it was my least favorite design.



    I also decided I'd try to do a couple of likeness studies every now and then. Here's Nixon.

    Victorian era lady. Tried to go the UPA approach and make it more graphic.

    Definitely an improvement since you started the SB. I like your studies (post #91), I think they're very important and obviously help. Parts of your stylizations work nicely (the lady in black's thighs and torso, for example), and some are still a little rough, probably from lack of anatomy practice.

    You're definitely improving, though. Keep it up!

    Great word for your age. I also admire your work ethic, you are doing a lot of studies and devoting a lot of time to them.... That will pay off big in the long run.
    I was once advised to do fewer studies but to do the ones I did absolutely as well as I could do them.
    I still don't always do that but I think it is good advice.

    Chate Noire: Thanks! I gotta do more studies and apply that anatomy to my designs.

    JailHouseRock2: Happy holidays to you too!

    bowlja: I took a break from the studies today to work on a storyboard project, but they'll be back. Not sure what you meant in your last couple sentences, as it wasn't very clear. But thanks for the advice, bowlja!

    I use scratch paper for my Bridgman studies. I don't like to waste paper...

    Mannequin still lifes. They suck for poses, but they help me figure out mass/lighting etc.

    Found some colored construction paper lying around so I decided to experiment with my figure studies. It was nice to just have fun with figure drawing again and distort the hell out of things and bend foreshortening rules.











    ^This one was crazy.



    Sorry if they're cropped, but the papers were 12x18 and I couldn't find my camera. I had to scan!



    Here's a silly still life. My mom has a bunch of statuettes of random stuff around the kitchen so I decided to draw one of them.



    A broken watch. Nothing artsy fartsy or thematic about this one--the wrist thing is detached from the actual clock so you can't wear it...

    Your still lifes (specifically ellipses) are improving.

    Remember, ellipses NEVER have pointy edges. Also, Ellipses get wider (closer to being a circle) as you look down on an object.

    So for example, when you're drawing something like a coffee can, and you're looking down at it, the cap (top part) will be a narrower ellipse compared to the base of the coffee can. But only slightly. Unless it's in a very extreme perspective.


    Perspective is tough.

    JohnID: Perspective is a bitch, preach it brother! That coffee can is a relatively old drawing, I already know the mistakes I made (it's pretty terrible). But I changed viewpoints inadvertently so that led to the screwy perspective. Hopefully, I've learned since then.

    Kapil: I feel bad, I haven't done anatomy studies for almost a week now. I've been really busy lately. But don't worry--it's all drawing related!

    Slobosaurus: Thanks for the advice. Looking back they do look kinda stiff.

    ---------

    I'm back (not that anyone cares)! After a week of no characterdesign.com or anatomy studies I was kinda rusty. Especially in the first two pieces, but I think they get better.











    Anyway, this is just a part of I did over the past two days. Gestures and Mattessi-ish drawings tomorrow!

    You're right, this last piece looks really good.
    Good job on the hands.

    You're certainly talented enough, just keep drawing

    i'll just echo what's been said in previous pages but contrary to slobosaurus--your work has a lot of energy and life! i can see the line of action and gesture in your figure drawings. they're very clear and esy to read.

    DoubleThink: Thanks! Hands have always been my weakness. Maybe there's been some improvement.

    slyx: I don't know why everyone likes the headphones so much. I decided to make it my thread thumbnail...maybe it'll draw in more people. Yeah right. Thanks for stopping by!

    HTML rulez d00d: Thanks. I guess life is subjective!

    ---------

    Anyway...here's some Force-ish drawings. Trying to think in abstract shapes, straight to curve, rhythm, etc.

    And I finally finished that Imperial lady character design:



    NOW things get crazy, kids! Here are the full body colored figure drawings from a couple weeks ago (finally found my camera!). And just for fun, I digitally inverted the colors for each.

















    Still lifes coming soon (not that anyone looks at these anyway).

    EDIT: new page! A lot of stuff on page 4, if you missed it.
