    More heads, some referenced (Loomis, as well as PlanesOfTheHead.com), and some were from imagination.

    Sheep Model Sheet

    Basic construction of a sheep, for animation.

    Used the Anatomy Drawing School book, The Sheep (page 413-433), for reference, as well as these links for reference pictures -

    Hey man heads are getting better seems like the studies are really paying off sheep turnaround looks sick as well! Animation looks ok, seems like the feet go through the floor quite a bit and you could maybe have the front legs a bit more bent at the passing positions? I'm not too sure that just seems like it to me but if you've done the research its down to you

    keep it up man

    Thank you bro, trying hard to understand those heads, I feel like I've improved just a tiny bit, for example I feel more clear in my mind about how the form is for it.

    Sure thing, I'll be working on the sheep today and fix some of the issues with it. I pushed the rig down just a touch too far, I'll bring it up slightly.
    I gotta work on the actual walk cycle now based on my thumbs, I would like to draw some more thumbs with a little more clarity to them.

    Thank you, good luck with your cow. =)

    spend more time rendering your figures, what i see here is just some mad scribbles that show the form in no way what so ever which is the opposite of what rendering is supposed to be. do a drawing of a face, spend some quality time on it and really try to render appropriately.

    spend more time on each piece!

    Krato - Thank you. I was thinking about that, for a while I've just been trying to understand the basic construction of things. Thank you for that though, I was thinking about doing some longer drawings and focusing on rendering with paint as well. So, I'll take you up on that one, thank you for the advice.

    Llex Paul - Thank you. I'm glad you can see some improvement. I won't stop, promise! I'll continue to do poses and some heads, along with the imaginative drawing. I'd also like to paint and render a bit more, as Krato mentioned, but be warned, my paintings leave a lot to be desired.

    Well, let's see what I can come up with today. Thank you to everyone!

    Okay, played around with colour today, enjoy. =)

    Colour 1

    New series, playing around with colour, acrylic painting to be specific. I'm following the tutorials in Lee Hammond's painting books, she's a fairly decent artist and an excellent teacher imho.




    Colour 2.

    Some tree silhouettes, getting used to painting their shape with pure black acrylic paint.




    Colour 3.

    Some more playing around with colour, using acrylic paints. Painted some bushes, bark, attempted a birch tree, as well as some spruces, and finally some snow capped mountains.
    Referenced from various tutorials by Lee Hammond.

    Perspective 9

    Drawing based on the principle of perspective within an infinitely long tunnel. Also, what happens in perspective when your vision of the world moves around, as well as when objects move around your field of view (FOV). The amount of the object which is seen was also explored, this is roughly called field of object (FOO).

    Anyway, acronyms aside, the point of the exercise demonstrated that in perspective, we can get a fisheye effect when looking around an infinite tunnel. Depending on how far away objects are, and the angle with which we see them, this determines the amount to which the fisheye effect distorts the object in perspective, as well as the relative size with which the object is seen.

    Reference video is the 10 minute drawing technique, episode 2 (I highly recommend you watch these from time to time if you would like to improve your drawing).
    - Here's the video on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA9SZYK3ozw

    I wasn't sure about posting this, but I thought to anyway, to show my process of studying this painting.

    Here is a paintover of Knight, a study to understand how to paint with light and how value was used within the original painting.

    The original art is copyright to the artist, by wlop, and may be found here - http://wlop.deviantart.com/art/Knight-152870495

    Interesting study work. I personally love acrylics, specifically a brand called "NOVA" in California. They're wonderful, the vibrance, and endless ability to layer. Darks over lights, Light colors over darker colors. I once did a study for a color theory class on setting up a still life - near a window. Taking pictures of it, once near sunrise, noon, and at sunset. The changes were amazing. And painting them showed me the similarities, and the definitive differences.

    Thank you. I've heard of Nova, I just can't get hold of it here unfortunately. That sounds lovely, I would like to practice building up the layers too. The still life and times of the day studies sound really interesting.

    Body 37

    Feeling a bit rusty on heads, decided to do some this morning. Gotta keep up the motivation to keep doing these everyday.

    Also working on painting at least one sketch. This one was created by painting the values (greyscale form) first, and then painting colour on top of this with a multiply layer.

    Hey Krato!

    Thank you. Yip, I have them, I just took a look through Loomis's book specifically on heads and I'll do some studies from there tomorrow. I was working from his other book last week.

    Here are some thumbnails for sheep grazing for the animating (4-legged) animals project. I think I may redraw them, I'm not really happy with them as I was glancing at the video and quickly drawing my observations of movement.

    Grazing sheep, click here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU6S2-fHhyk , key poses. I decided to key my sheep again with these poses instead. Going to try animate with these, been feeling a bit bored with the animation as of late, but trying my best to get back into it. Mostly the complication of the software crushes my spirit every time I look at it.

    My next attempt at a sheep grazing, not quite what I was looking for, but anyway... I would like to be able to carry on the walk cycle, just need to figure out how to do it...

    hey, i think u just have to keep working at it, adding tones will make things look more dimensional and less flat. But just drawing from life or reference will move u along all the same.GL

    Hey Jesus, never thought I'd find myself writing that, hehe.

    Thank you for the hope bro, going to keep going no matter what.

    I'll try to add some more tone into my work, my main focus is on line, but I'll do a few tone pieces, as well as some colour ones as I would also like to improve with them.

    Here are some latest works, all from life.

    Warmup drawings from life.

    It's just stuff, going to draw stuff from now on, lots of stuff.
