Shit was lazy today, ill remedy that by makeing my hands bleed from drawing tommorow.
I like the improvement and dedication in this thread! keep it going!!
I need to work on being more realiable. If I say I'm gona stick to something I gota do it I mean when I run away for days at a time people lose trust in me! They want to see big updates everyday, and it makes everyone happy when they see those kind of people! I know it makes me happy looking at those kind of people.
Here is just some random stuff from past few days. I need to work more on painting,
Gesture studies are looking great keep it up!!
By the way something in this thread remembers me "Paranoia Agent" Damn what a twisted and mad series
Hey, nice to see someone else has been active while i wasn't, you'r doing great man. I see life-drawing is really helping you with the shapes there huh? I should take some classes too. Anyway, i kinda see your point about improving more if you paint too, dunno why i didn't think of that. Have been feeling that i'm getting a bit too comfortable actually... which, needless to say, is not a good thing.
Do i see some Ghibli stuff btw? Haha, i love their movies, especially Mononoke-hime. =D
Yo man! You are back! No more dicking around OK?!?!?!? Keep up the pace cause it will pay off big time, believe me! Someone has been watching the ChiuStream lol I recognize the study!
On your animation... the start is very slow, it looks like its floating too much and it stretches in mid air. That can work for really fast movements but not here. You want to use the stretch after the ball squashes on the floor. See Richard William's Animators Survival Kit book for all your animation needs (seriously good book). So dont stretch the ball in mid air. Try keep it a regular ball shape when not many forces is pulling/ stretching it big time (eg/ in mid air). A trick is to stretch the ball just when it contacts with the floor, this is a trick to help sell the 'contact.' Then you get the squash... anticipate it and hold it for a few frames on the ground before the ball is off again and when it flies off again, give it a stretch but then when its off in the air again... keep it a regular shape.
Hey there, Dylan! Thanks for visited my sketchbook. You have a nice thread here, yourself (and much more active )! Keep doing the studies, you're improving much. I see your lines are much more thoughtful this time. Proportions are getting better and your digital stuffs are doing great also
Keep this thread up, will ya?
I have to agree with some of the others and say slow down, pay attention to what you're doing and retain what you've learned. You have a lot of potential, so it's time to stop fartin' around and take your skills to the next level. There's some really nice work in here, but since this sketchbook is nearing its first anniversary, the overall improvement should be more evident. C'mon man, show us what you can REALLY do!

Doncam: Hah thanks man! It's actually a few degrees above freezeing right now and I find that kind of weather wonderful. It can get very cold but right now something called a "chinook" which is a warm wind from the mountains is blowing makeing it warm!

Bendragon: Thanks for the encouragement man makes me feel very good! NO MORE DICKING AROUND FFF-YAAAA. I hit up Richard Williams stuff yesterday also pirated his DVD's hehe. I'm gona study it very closely.
Imaginary: Hey thanks man, don`t worry you may have not kept it up but dude you can always start right now and just keep on going.
