Looking for some feedback on my gestural sketches. I was doing 60 sec posemaniac sets. It looks terrible to me, but will keep it up. Trying to do 3-4 10 min posemaniac sessions a day on top of perspective studies.
Hi Syle, I don't really often do those posemaniacs gestures things , but I think they're mainly used to warm up. On the other hand, I can recommend this pdf, quite much to read but it's so great and changed my way of thinking about anatomy/gesture. "Gesture Drawing for Animation" (the link is a pdf!), it's a collection of the handouts of Walt Stanchfield. I should print it out and take your time read it.
Thanks for passing through here Karmiclychee. I appreciate the feedback. I will totally pay attention to pushing my darks and lights. More contrast!
Also, I really dig your website. Those renderings that you did of the bananas were top notch! The first one I thought was photograph! Until I did a double-take I didn't realize it was digital. Very cool.
I saw that you were moving to Seattle soon; I'm in Seattle myself. I would be curious to know which Futurepoly classes and Gage classes you take. I took the Concept Design course at Futurepoly. It was a good course and very loosely (but also very educational) structured.
