I loved the gestures in those last sets of images you really nailed them, Its one of the things that I am really concentrating on at the moment and sometimes I get it way wrong which makes me laugh out loud. You don't seem to be having any troubles at the moment so I will just say well done and keep posting.
All the best to you matey and thanks again for taking the time to post all this stuff it really helps the numpties of the world like me to see it done right! lol
Falllllin' behind with my updates again.
I'm still drawing more than twice a day, the problem is I've been baddly, baddly struggling against the urge to rush. I think I'm starting to get over it again, thankfully. But I'm not being funny with you the stuff I was churning out had such a dramatic decline in quality I knew it wasn't worth posting till I focused on fixing my problem.
Replies: Mane: Ah, thank you! Josh: Haha, always does me good hearing people think I'm progressing. Hopefully I can keep up the pace! Lightship: I had problems with gestures for the longest time too! I'm still not sure I've got the hang of the quicker ones, so many I look at when I'm done and just think "what the fuck is that?" but atleast I still find it a good warm up. Also, cheers for the kind words! It never occurs to me that people find any use from these sketches I dump here, I just figure its easier for me to see my general progress when its all together. So that's really just a bonus! Good luck with your gestures, I'm sure you'll get the hang of them.
I had more, I just can't remember what's on tumblr and whats already here anymore.

odd, I swear I posted a reply here not long ago but apperantly it's gone :s
Anyway, I just wanted to say that you're really growing a lot and becoming really great, the only thing I can say is to keep doing what you're doing because clearly it's working really good for you
Kambei: Ah, thank you! Ahaha, I must admit, loads of what I draw lately's fanart. If you see horned kids and teens with glasses, definitely not my characters. But thank you! Cheers for the kind words Lav: Aw shucks, I don't even know what to say! Ahah, other than thank you of course! I still feel I could be pushing myself more. I'll probably set up a list of goals sometime today and superglue it to my forehead.

99% of this update is yet again homestuck fanart, and you know what? I'm not even sorry.
Its so much less stressful just drawing other characters for a bit and not worrying about consistency, I'm considering this fanart splurge like a massive break to me.
Samuri: Everyone keeps saying I'm progressing! ahaha, I might have to look back over pages to verify that for myself, I feel like I'm always stood in the same place ahaha. Nodeerskulls: Bah, you're so kind! I've actually been practicing my lines in digital lately, I'm hoping I can learn to handle that medium better. Cheers!
Woah this was awesome love your dialogues and drama/humor!
Figures also looking further and further character and personal.
(but found that great hand ref gif! Esp for those who need to exaggerate slimness of- and space between fingers, like I ) http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...6&d=1235691405
Sry mobile won't let me use image uploader...
Cheers, Nim! I'm having plenty of fun messing around, especially on fanart. I'm going to take that same carefree approach I start them with to my own projects, I'm hoping.
And that's allright! It's still a useful thing to have anyways, I can still get the gist of it at that size ahaha.
Ah, still having a lot of fun scribbling homestuck fanart at 2am. I swear I'm going to do more studies along side them.

I just realised you can animate on photoshop.
Nothing big I've done, mind you. I'm starting to realise when one thing moves, everything else sort of moves with it, and really subtly. Not going to beable to mimic fluid movement anytime soon.
Not actually sure those things uploaded right. We'll have to see.
