JuliaMetzger - I love trying to push my stuff more, thanks for the artist suggestions - One of my biggest problems is I'm super left brained. When I'm stressed out I always revert back to structural stuff. It also varies based on the project at work, and the current one is pretty ridged.
We're in the last days of this big project, so I will be back to just 1 project soon lol! hopefully I can get some more fun stuff done
thanks Flashback, haven't done many studies at all for the past month because I've been working all the time.
I have a brace for my hand now, and It's really helping, was able to draw a good bit yesterday. I find my proportions are really hurting, and everything is coming out skewed. I haven't been practicing enough, and I've been working too hard lol!
I really want to get better at composition and story boarding. I want to get better at everything >.< I need a nice long vacation from drawing FX all day so I can draw all day!
I really enjoy your sketchbook!
I haven't really seen all of it (it's a very long one after all )
I really like your cartoon characters and environments because I am actually very fond of children book illustration style
The little adorable characters you drew in blue ball pen are really fun and heart-warming.
I can't wait to see it when you do storyboard
First step towards leveling up my story boarding. Spent about 2 hours sketching out the first 5 and a half scenes from Hunchback of Notre Dame.I was working on regular printer paper so pretty small and loose. Made me want to do some longer background studies- those long shots are crazy.
Also too lazy to remove the tiny image from the first picture lol.
Comp studies - and some warm up for-fun faces. first 3 are from Mulan, a few loosly based off random internet browsing- the last bunch I just found compositions I liked and tried to draw something unrelated using the same basic layout.
Flashback - The boards are a study from the Hunchback of Notre Dame, so I can't take any credit for their awesomeness! They were done on paper and edited in Photoshop. I would do one background for a series of panels and draw the poses for the character separately.
My next study won't be from the beginning of anything - too many big epic scenes haha.
When the server is slow I doodle:
Forgive the weird pixilation, this was drawn on the back of my production notes and the words showed through haha had to chew them out for NDA.
Awesome works! I really like the facial expressions and character poses from the last pages. I was following your progress while I had my old account over a year ago ... great to see that you have improved so much since then!
