    Mayu Zane's Sketchbook

    Hello everyone. After lurking on the forums for quite a while I decided to stop worrying so much about embarassing myself with my sub-par art and figured that if I wanted to improve I should start posting some of my work.

    Just a little background info: I'm a 21-year-old Bruneian, an animation student (with no preference to either Western or Eastern styles, good animation is good animation) specializing in 2-D. I also make comics and do illustrations.

    Unfortunately I don't own a scanner, so most of the stuff here will be works done by tablet.

    Well, here goes.

    I always welcome advice. Thank you for your time.

    Also, I'll be posting up .swf or .gif files of my animation as well, later this month.

    Something simple for practice:

    Looking at it again, I noticed he should've pulled his right elbow back as he lowered the arm.

    A preview to the third page of Kabus.

    I spent too much time on "How in the world should I depict the numerous deaths in that space?" but I'm fine with it now. Just going to ink and color it.

    Nice start, I don't own a scanner either, but if you have a camera by all means use it! I like your comic sketches, remember to post lots of studies too ~

    I do most of my studies on paper, hence why it doesn't get posted up, but I'll see if I can get a good enough shot with my camera. I'll get the digital sketches up too later (I'm celebrating my birthday today, 23 June!)

    Also, thanks for stopping by, RedSquirrel!

    Nice sketchbook. I like your comics, they definitely catch my attention and I'm intrigued by the story. Art-wise, I think your coloring and shading needs a fair amount of improvement. I think your color schemes aren't as appealing as they could be, and sometimes your light source is hard to distinguish. I also noticed that, when coloring skies, you tend to use only one shade of blue (well, you used a few shades in the first image you posted, but they weren't blended very well. I do like the clouds, though). I think it would be a good idea for you to go back to the basics and do some simple exercises. Check out the Peer Project thread, that thread has helped me

    Your anatomy is pretty good. It seems as though you're more comfortable with male anatomy than female anatomy, just judging by the art you've posted here. Definitely do as much life drawing as possible, and check out posemaniacs.com if you haven't already.

    Anyway, keep it up! I'm sure that one day you'll be a great animator, if you work really hard.

    Thank you for your suggestions, and yes I have been checking out posemaniacs.com

    Reckon I should have a look at the peer project thread... and draw more ladies. I just find males to be easier, but I suppose that's a case of deliberately avoiding working on a weak spot.

    Thanks again for stopping by!

    I think from looking at your comics, that abit more working from reference pictures would help.
    Even if your going for a 'manga-ish' style, having the basic realistic proportions and placement of facial features down would still help you alot.

    Not saying that your work is rubbish, but just trying to suggest something to make it alot stronger. You seem to have the basic underlying 'theory' down, but it just doesn't flow or feel natural enough.

    Still, looking forward to you 'giving me the finger' by producing some kick arse stuff.

    This is the most accurate description of my work so far. For some reason whenever I think of a pose it seems okay in my head but stiff when it comes to my eyes. Certain rules just seem to slip my mind, but I think that can be fixed with time and practice.

    I think you have a good start and idea of what you're aiming for - I'd personally like to see more of your sketches, be them studies or conceptuals.

    For your digital stuff though, I think you need to work on your color theory a bit. Try experimenting with different color schemes in some speed-paints, ranging from high saturation to low, etc etc.... I found a good exorcise for practicing colors was to practice from nature, like flowers, creatures...etc.

    EDIT: Aaggggh where is the vanishing point?

    Going to keep working on it, especially on face and feet.

    I really hate it when I forget things while I'm working on a picture.
