Rooster's Sketch Dump
For critique, comments and general viewing pleasure (if that's what it can be called).
After a fairly recent artistic epiphany, I've been trying to seperate my style from the anime influence and move more toward the simplicity of Disney animation. I love the certainty of stroke that animators have and, even though I'm hoping to be a comic artist, I hope to emulate that in my own art.
Sketches to follow shortly.

hi Josie . first, you should tell if the paintings you do are from observation or mind, it'd be better to get right critics . Then, i think you're on the right path . Just take your time to get the proportions right before painting, or it'll be a pain in the ass to change the whole color stuff, or even worse, getting lazy to change your mistakes at this stage would be the worst thing that can happen . you have some understanding of light . You are well separating light and shadow, so we can directly see where the light is coming from . then, you should try to play with the subtilities to describe form . Try to avoid those values patches . The values are ALWAYS different from any point, even if it's slightly . It's rare that you have a big patch of value on the same area, even if you see it on photos, those values are wrong ( photos are most of the time underexposed or overexposed ) you should get some stuff about light theory, such as core shadow, cast shadow, reflected light, etc, and see how it works on real life . Also i really suggest you to paint from real life, this is more difficult than from photo, and way more interesting in terms of moods and colors ! Try to paint simple objects at the beginning, then, when you'll be more at ease, find a mirror and do selfportraits, it'll be great !

And then I do other stuff sometimes.
Those color ones are costume design concepts. You know, for theatre. I'm the assistant costume designer now at our university theatre department.

Your gestures and perspective drawings are good. I also, like the line-work on the characters. Keep at it! :3
