    Random character...

    After doing the gestures I decided to draw something randomly and this is what I came up with. I want to finish it by tomorrow some time because I'm liking how it's coming out. I think doing the gesture drawings first really helped me.

    Hey Ian thanks for your comments on my SB. I was put on to the pixelovely by a fellow member here and I think it's a great tool for artsits. I'm glad to see you working on the spider lady character, side view looks good and this last one is interesting as well. Keep at it.

    Hey Ian good progress I think. The poses are looking more fluid and natural and you're getting a good sense of form. Keep at it.

    Thanks Marian.

    I haven't been posting for a while because I've been in the process of rebranding myself by redesigning my website. This is something I've been holding off for a while so it was something I had to do and something that took top priority so when I apply for jobs, they can see my website. It's mostly finished but I still need to add some content to some of the pages and add php to the contact form so that it works.

    I've also been in the process of learning more about javascript. I'm debating whether or not I should take a class but I think that the challenge for me is to understand the programming concepts down when I want to make more complicated stuff for the web. I'm not necessarily sure that taking a javascript class will help me because they will probably start off with really basic stuff which is stuff I already know.

    I've been teaching myself javascript on and off for about a year now with some success. Knowing Actionscript 3.0 does help a bit but I don't know if I should keep continuing to teach myself or if taking a class is the right idea. I never really took a class in html and css except for a web design class in college(which wasn't that helpful) but over the years, I've been able to teach myself the basic concepts and I'm even starting to learn about html5 and css3. I also use css and html at both my part time jobs so that definitely helps.

    Money is also an issue. Their is a continuing ed class that starts in June but it's pretty expensive. I've talked to some other programmers and almost all of them that I talk to say that they taught themselves.

    I'm def going to start drawing again soon. I had no idea this was going to take me this long.

    You can view my website here: click here.

    It will redirect you to my new site.

    I know that I should be drawing but I feel like if I get a strong grasp on javascript it will help me find a better job and hopefully one that is full time. I never imagined I would be doing any programming or any web design so I'm pretty proud of myself that I'm doing something I never thought I could do. I still want to make a living doing art though so a part of me feels like a bit of a failure but I shouldn't think that way because I've come pretty far in gaining new skills.

    I guess my focus right now is to find a job that pays decently. This way I can still continue with my art. I also need to redesign my resume which is something I have to do this week.

    Anyway, I'm really curious what you guys think of my website so far. It's best to view it in Safari or Chrome to see some of the animation features. Unfortunately, Safari and Chrome are the only two browsers that support the css3 animation features but I think firefox should be supporting it soon.

    Thanks.

    something I'm working on...

    Even though I haven't posted in a long time, I've still be drawing. I've been really practicing my anatomy and doing studies a little bit everyday. Here is something I started working on.

    Hey Ian, good to hear from you. Sounds like you've been busy and I like the new website. I'm using Firefox browser so I couldn't see the animations. Your short film animations look very promising though. I think you should save your money and just keep self tutoring with the programming. From what I've seen of your work so far you seem to be developing well that way, plus I think the website creation helps to showcase all your skills. Well done.

    Some progress on a doodle....

    Thanks Marion Rowling.

    Here is something I've been working on. It was a doodle but I like how it's coming along. I notice for me that when I get a little too nervous or afraid that I'm going to make a mistake, my anatomy tends to get messed up. When I'm a bit more relaxed and don't think too much about it, my anatomy is much better. I still need to find a good workflow for me.

    Thanks Raminafshari. I've actually been doing a lot more anatomy studies lately and I've been trying to do them almost everyday. I just don't post my studies that much anymore on here.

    Something new...

    I haven't posted on here in a long time. Been really busy with other things in my life. I applied for a game artist position for mobile games and I actually got the opportunity to take a skill based test for them. All they said was that the it had to have penguins and it had to be in a specific style. This is what I came up with.

    It was pretty challenging because of the strict deadline. I didn't find out until Wednesday but really couldn't start it until Friday night and spent the whole weekend on it. I'm exhausted.

    Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I used Illustrator and Photoshop, something I don't normally do.

    Anyway, I was wondering what you guys thought. Wish me luck!

    Thanks muramura and Marion Rowling! I will hopefully be posting some more work soon. I haven't done much art in a while. I think I needed a break because I was working myself way too hard and stressing myself out. I think it had an effect on me.

    And yes, perspective is something I should think about more so I will do that in my next illustration.

    My influences

    I've never done this before but I decided to really identify what artists I really like and create myself an art influence page with my favorite artists on it. It is really good to see everything at once. Granted, I'll probably be adding more to it but this is a good place for me to really start identifying my style and having some more control over it. I thought I would share mine with you.

    another doodle....

    So I started working on some thumbnails for a new illustration and I ended some sketching another character. I was playing with warm shadows and cooler highlights. I'm not sure if I'm liking the color yet. I'm still playing around with it.

    I know it's been a while

    I know it's been a long time since I've updated. I've been taking a break from art and pursuing other fields that I'm more interested in but this morning I felt like doing this doodle. I'll try to finish it soon.

    thumbnails and a doodle...

    Thanks Marian.

    These are some thumbnails I started but I ended up doing a doodle also. I really need to stop doing that and focus more on thumbnailing. I have an idea for an illustration I really want to do so I will be posting the progress of that hopefully pretty soon.

    My twitter background

    Thanks for the comment Lav.

    I decided to change my twitter background to something I created instead of using one of the pre-made backgrounds.

    This is what I created.

    If anyone wants to follow me on twitter click here.

    On a side note, I need to get more practicing at drawing wrinkles in clothes. Something I will do in the future.
