    Thanks for stopping by my Sketcbook (even though I tend to Emo it up in there I'll have to do some line studies now, get some stronger/ cleaner strokes.

    Anyhow, about your new work
    I love those new environments. the look of the trees is great, reminds me of Hercules or Tarzan from Disney. I also really likes that city in post 224, great perspective practice.

    It's also cool to see the difference between the digital and traditional stuff you do, really interesting and motivating (at least for me).

    I do have a question though, how do you practice drawing? do you do mostly imagination stuff? or do you look at real life and cartoon-ize it?

    I ask because on that post with the subway sketches the people sill look simplified, but they are from real life. Is that a really helpful exercise or would it be better to buy some learn how to draw cartoons books?

    I would love to someday be able to do cartoon/ comic people but I'm not sure how to best practice to get there. I feel that if I copy someone else's drawings I'm not really learning 3D construction, but drawing from life makes my work look more realistic than I want it to be...

    Sorry, if I rambled too much, I just want to understand how someone better than me studies.

    Thanks Sporus
    & always a pleasure Dracken. - Hercules and Tarzan just happen to be 2 of my favorite films for design ^_^ I've been hugely influenced by Disney, in fact watching The Little Mermaid at 5 years old was the first time I wanted to be an animator.

    I do have a bit of a practice routine- I spend a good chunk of time commuting so I spend at least 5 hours a week sketching on the subway- as you can see from the posts sometimes is spent doodling, some caricaturing, and though it doesn't get posted often I do more realistic studies as well. Sometimes figures, sometimes faces, other times shoes, handbags, or stuff I see out the windows or on the floor. Really it's as much a way to pass time as practice.
    When I get home from work I usually spend 1-2 hours working digitally. If I'm not on a contract I spend just about all day working digitally.
    The stuff I post is most of my perspective and cartooning work, and any painting I try to take a stab at.

    Beyond that I spend plenty of time studying from books or blogs. I don't post any of this stuff unless it's immediately recognizable like tarzan because I don't take the time to keep track of who owns what stuff I'm copying. I wouldn't feel right posting it without labeling it.
    Some of my favorites are Glen Keane, Stephen Silver, Jose Lopez, Studio Blink Twice, Creature box, Sean Galloway (aka Cheeks), Every movie by Miyazaki, and about a bazillion others.
    I also revisit my bridgeman books regularly and try to spend at least 2-3 sessons a month doing flat out gestures - Pixelovely is amazing.

    So that was a bit long winded, but basically I try to do a bit of everything. I draw realistic from life, caricature from life, cartoons from reference and imagination, perspective studies from life and imagination.

    I find most learn to draw books are terrible. I think the best way to improve your cartooning is perspective, and a combination of life drawing, cartooning reference, and stuff from the imagination.
    If your copying other people's cartooning, the best way to get the most out of it is to try and work out the 3D forms. Don't draw what your looking at, literally reconstruct the toon.

    Even the top animators of the world will deconstruct a character to get the proportions properly (see below). Often it's supplied for them (here's some Sweet Disney reference to riffle through) The higher the budget a project was the more detailed a breakdown they would get. Kinda takes the magic out of it when you know how it's done lol.

    So copy- but copy smart. Don't photocopy- reconstruct.
    Hopefully this is useful!

    Below: example from Disney reference I liked above. A model breakdown of Belle's face from Beauty and the Beast.
    Also, I never post without something of mine- so Here's some thumbnails

    Thank you, thank you! I love reading about the way other people go about practicing. It's really helpful and makes me feel more confident about my own studies

    Also thanks for those Disney archives, good stuff there.

    Oh and nice looking thumbnails. I like those room studies, they look fun

    I love your recent environment layouts! The finished work looks so clean and well polished. I'm trying to get my feet wet with some environment studies, so do you have any tips on how to go about it?

    Love the studies and I love that you draw anything. Great variety! Can't wait to see more!

    Thanks everyone for all your awesome comments
    Dracken- I'm always happy to try and help!
    Aresa - Thanks a lot. I found doing small studies very helpful. 10-25 minuet pieces where the focus is just composition and perspective less then 6" square, sometimes as small as as 1-2 inches.
    I also like copying from favorite movies. I just pause at pretty places and do quick thumbnails.
    It's a lot like character drawing, lots of quicker focused studies. When you get around to a more finished piece things start coming together.

    Today's post is lots more doodle-sized things.
    Happy sketching everybody!!
