    The land of the clockwork sausage, do not be afraid children!

    Hi all, My name's Stuart Coutts, I am 18 years old and live in South Africa.

    I do not study art formally as a student, because education in the province of Gauteng is run by retarded people. I am however going to study animation from next year, and plan to go in with a sturdy art foundation and a masochistic attitude

    So presently i am teaching myself, by drawing and drawing and drawing, occasionally at a life drawing class that is free for students such as myself. so far this year I have filled two and a half A3 sketch books, and one and a half a4 ones, which is unacceptable.

    I have absolutely no will power to deal with my scanner, so i'll show you my forray into digital speed painting yay!

    Dude, this is reli not clever,
    i got to be signed into facebook to see your art, and it wont even let me cos im not a friend of yurs on facebook. to be honest, its almost as good as not even posting the art atall. you need to post it up on the site if u wana get feedback and crits.

    its your choice, but i seriusly would advise it. message me if u decide to post it on here, cos i'd really like to see it.

    Hey man! Now.... advice for going into studying animation Okay... I think fundamental drawing skills are very very important for animation. A solid knowledge of anatomy and an ability to convey motion in a drawing is a massive help. To study these are simple. Look at anatomy books and draw from them, take some life drawing classes and draw from life/ observation LOADS! You have to draw absolutely loads from observation and that is the best way I can think of to boost your fundamental drawing skills. To animate well you must first have a solid foundation of the basics in drawing methinks. So I would focus on them and do tons of studies.
    Good luck man! Go go go!!!

    these are super nice. I didn't feel as lonely in this world when I read that your guys' educational system is run by retards as well, haha!

    well then, speedpaints are great practice, but I would also suggest that you took the time to work on something more elaborate, I'd like to see how great a level of details you could achieve. the coloring on some speedpaints is messy and flat.

    my suggestion is to try out new things... like textures in your drawings as well as refining your brush strokes. :]

    Bendragon thanks for dropping by man. Yup i couldn't agree with you more, been drawing like a wild person, but as i mentioned before i've been too lazy to get around to scanning... but i suppose now would be a good time to start. Been attending figure sessions, (which are free to students such as myself) helps loads! will update with anatomy study asap. wee

    ethf8ffn I haven't a clue what you could mean by that.

    steffors shot mate

    Speed painting is just a hobby at present, sculpture and drawing are my real focus, behind the screen.

    Laters and thanks more on the way

    Figures, messing around with brushes in the first two(3 minutes each), pencil sketch then mapping-pen for the last two(30min each), with brush for the larger areas. My aim with these was to develop confidence in single, long strokes, rather than tight sketchy lines.

    I do usually work in pencil for studies, but i couldn't resist. ink is just too much fun. I've been offered work recently, and am very excited to do my first commission work wish me luck

    edit all a3, so couldn't scan. camera is always useful, no?

    Ink sketches of my friends cats, on a convenient lump of sketchpad. And some skeletal development for that alien-frog man. you'll be seeing more of him. I think.
