    Amazing sketchbook. Rather heartening to see a sketchbook that is stylized all the way through.
    I want to become a 2D animator. I find Maya complicated and frustrating, though my college focuses mainly on 3D modeling. Still in my first year, so we'll see how it goes.
    I am enjoying your sticking to cartoony styles though. I want to keep at a less realism style, and wish to develop a skill for a more cartoony one a bit like yours

    hi Angieb. - I love sketching out and about, I really should do it more. - about animation - I never really thought 'less is more' but now that you've said it, it's a good summary. I practice drawing this way pretty much all the time so I have a lot of trouble switching to the more complex, illustrative style a lot of the folks on here employ We all have our strengths I suppose.

    Thanks TagoTarTogus - thanks - I really hated maya too - I did 1 year of 3D at school - but my main problem was I love drawing, and 3D takes that away from me. The important thing to remember if you want to be a cartoonist is you still have to learn the fundamentals- perspective, figure drawing, anatomy, form - all that stuff is still super important. I don't have a tonne of traditional stuff in here- but I just finished 3 years of life drawing + perspective, anatomy & all that jazz right before I started this sketchbook. Lots of new cartoonists think you get to skip it - but you don't

    Coloured my foresty drawing- I think I've done worse lol
    This is me when I try to colour things (cuz I'm colour blind lol fml):

    Hey Rhubix,

    Superb traditional/digital figures. You're a really good draftswoman!

    Imo, the only thing missing to your otherwise superb body of work are color studies from life. I think it would really benefit your stuff, especially your environments.

    Would love to hear form ya in my Skb,

    Thanks Tea of doom - I had a total face palm moment when I read your comment- The last time I did a colour study from life was 2005 >.< - I'll resist the urge to make excuses lol. Thanks for that.

    Kevin - thanks I like drawing all the things!

    Thanks flashback

    -took Tea of Doom's advice - still life from life I think pieces of it work better than others -
    and I could have spent another hour on the drapery but I I got fed up trying to get that fork working.
    Who buys squiggly design forks anyway? wtg rhubix.

    I just spent a good part of the day drawing and going through your sketchbook. It's seriously amazing! I really love everything that you do.

    I am kind of in awe. Actually. lol.

    So when you're developing characters of animals, I have heard that some people pull up some reference photos and try to really memorize it, put it away, and then try to draw from memory to create that sort of fluid animal. Is this how you do it? Or do you already have all these animals in your memory bank?

    I was really like, jaw dropping at your cleaned up line drawings. I just got my tablet 3 days ago, and man, I have NO idea how to get those great of lines! I think your's are just fabulous!

    I cannot believe you do so well with being colorblind! That's just amazing!!

    Way to go! You're inspiring!

    Hi. ^^ I wanted to thank you again for the advice, and to let you how inspiring your art is, oh my goodness. Your angular style is so eye gripping, which makes for awesome animations! Hope you don't mind having another googly-eyed fan ^^;

    Oh man. Well there goes that. My universitry only gives you two or three life drawng classes, and only one perspective class. And even then the teachers dont really critique you much. My campus mostly focuses on the 3D stuff, because this is a popular place for games and 3D focusing companies. I wish it was more focusing on traditional, but i think mom would have a fit if I asked to find another school with a scarier commute, or took the classes over again, especially for 4 years. It is a shame. We are on a quarter system, so we only get 11 classes of each thing, so we dont get enough time to really hone our skills in class.
    I'll just have to keep studying on my own time, get battered around by critiques here until I get my anatomy good enough for those highly detailed illustrator high and mighties that dwell on this site.

    I hear you on the loving drawing over modeling. That is exactly how I feel about it. Which is why I enjoyed the flash animation classes so much. I grew up with a simpiler style as well, so I am struggling with the high details that everyone wants.

    thanks AdrienneRose , that post was super motivating - answered questions on your SB

    DizzySun - Always happy to meet other cartoonists on CA- I'm glad my comment was helpful.

    Thanks - Staal Sander

    TagoTarTogus - Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater! I didn't mean that you couldn't succeed without a school focused on drawing- just that you couldn't skip those things entirely. Some people think that a focus on cartooning allows you to ignore classical studies - I just wanted to emphasize that anatomy, perspective, gesture, lighting- all those things are still important. Cartooning is just the simplification and stylization of those foundational skills.
    Learn what you can from school, websites like this, and where ever else you can get it. If you know what your weaknesses are, you can work to fix them. The only thing that can stop you from succeeding is giving up

    hey rhubix love your work, youre very good at environments and perspective, which is my biggest weakness, maybe you could stop my my sketchbook for advice sometime?love your work and style, your really a great all around artists, theres not many sketchbooks like yours on here sadly but its nice to be refreshed with your beautiful cartoon-esque work.great rendering on that last still life by the way, and the drapery may seem to you like it wasnt rendered enough, but i think it was detailed just the right amount.

    Hi Rhubix, thanks for dropping by my sketchbook once again. Your words made me browse back to my first pages and you were absolutely right!
    It was a good reminder which I dearly needed apparently. I think the last year has been very hard for me, but it wasn't all in vain.

    I admire your updates. You're well at it and you appear to be more comfortable with different subjects these days. Keep that up!

    haha, I feel for your friend, Blazing.

    Been doing a bit more goofy stuff recently since I moved from animating on a show called Detentionare to a more cartoony show called Sidekick- check em both out they're great.

    haha scanned half of this twice /fail

    So many costumes!!! You really have an eye for them. I love that you're using both digital and traditional media in a balanced way, they both have their vibrant energy. I'd love to see more observational gestures (like you have from two pages ago). Keep up the good work!

    Hey hey - I've been meaning to post so I'll be 600!

    Absolutely adore your cartoon studies / sketches - really bursting with character and fun and a real treat to pour over every time I look I see something new and feel inspired ... thank you!

    A few crits would be - some of your more realistic stuff could do with a smidge more work on proportions (dude in last post's features feel as if they could do with being lowered a tad) ... here's a quick 'paintover' / adjustment. All I've done is lower all his features a little, then rotate and reduce his eye size a bit - also made his pupils a bit smaller.

    The only other thing is I'd love to see your colour work boosted a bit... wider value range? Hmm basically highlights/shadows pushed a bit more. It's a bit tricky to crit as I do like your cosy, soft colour style but sometimes it can feel as if my vision is a bit blurred - that make sense?

    Out of interest what is your colour process from lines to finished?

    Edit: Wait... I just read an earlier post and you say you're colour blind? I never know if people are joking as a way to say 'gah this colour business is frustrating!!' or if they genuinely are colour blind... if so hope I didn't offend you!

    Hope that's helpful!

    Keep Rockin!
