    dizzy, judging by the fact you've got cartoon characters here in your sketchbook, and animation gifs in your blog, am i even close when i say that you gotta be interested in animation? i'm currently obsessed with learning animation (and ofcourse drawing). will keep on watching with popcorn by my side hope to see a rough animation from you some day!

    Oh my gosh I'M BACK! Im so so sorry for the absence you guys! A very late thank you to all the kind words I never even replied to in a timely manner. TT.TT Lots has happened since march of course, mainly problems regarding that oh so wonderful new computer I gushed about in one of my last posts. Basically it had a bad hard drive and it took me between march and September to finally realize it. (yeesh)
    Ive been keeping track of all my stuff in my absence for my return~ And will most definitely keep this place updated from here on out. Ive got a few image dumps that basically sum up my progress since I last updated.


    Also: I know its been far too long but To CarbonBased~ Thank you very much! I really love fun and lighthearted art styles and comic strips, and it influences me in a very direct way. I absolutely love your graphite works, btw. You really know how to own that pencil, no? Very impressed. : )

    Joona~! You are most correct! My top priority is to work in the animation industry. Now I haven't decided yet if that means actually animating, or working in visual development. Right now the latter is more appealing to, but we'll see once I start taking animation class, I could fall in love. And thanks! Someday hope to have a rough, and polish (woah) film all nice and ready for an audience...someday!
    It's awesome to meet a fellow animation junkie! It's great that you're learning the animation process, maybe we can root each other on in our progressions. : )


    okay, first up is from February and March.

    August was mostly artless and I'll have to gather and scan in sketches from sept till now all at once or something. But I've got some digital stuff I can use to document where I'm at currently. They're from Oct and Nov, mostly stylized but I got one study in there and a composition/environment like practice.

    Currently my focus is build an impressive portfolio for the schools I'm applying to, Ive got until February and March to do it. O: So I've been working on character design, expressions and of course color and compositions, two of my weaknesses. And maintaining figures and gesture practice.

    I like your own characters a lot! The latest nude model value study has some issues I noticed.
    Her neck is very long, her hands are small compared to legs. The bicep also seems pretty short, if the shadow cuts from elbow.
    Keep pushing! I've also started to draw more and more again.

    edit: Oh and try to render her rounder with shadows, for instance
    look at her back, it's pretty flat, as in 2d -flat.

    Yay cartoons! You've got lots of cute things in here. I really like your simple colour studies, they make me think of Mary Blair's work.

    I've been in the animation industry for a few years, and you don't really need to choose an area to stick with. I've worked in design, fx, animation, breaking.
    Production happens in stages, so design, storyboards, layout, background painting, and stuff all happen first, than breaking and scene planning, then animation, Fx, composting, editing. So it's advantageous to know different steps. Small studios like generalists who can do a bit of everything and as one step finishes they can move the people into other roles.

    It's only the big studios that have specialists, and they're more likely to hire people with more experience.
    So just have fun with it all- and learn all you can about the whole industry

    Happy sketching!

    Hi, you have alot of nice work, your drawings are very good, I love cartoon style stuff.

    It appears that you struggle or avoid drawing hands, perhaps try some anatomy studies;
    I found these pictures on the internet to practice hands myself, if you'd like me to take them out of the thread just let me know;

    oh my goodness those bunnies are so cute i want to scream. i'm not in any position to critique you but like the others already said you've got a really fluid animation style. i see you're well on your way and with practice you're gonna kick some serious ass! good luck on your illustration dreams, too. one tip i think i have would probably be to do a lot of real life studies, face and such (it's what i'm doing right now to improve), i think that will surely help with any stylizing you wanna do.

    While I think Mr-Joe's attachment was excessive (I like Milt Kahl as much as the next guy, but you really overdid it), he's right about the hand thing (I didn't even notice until he pointed it out). I barely see any real hands except for the recent digital figure painting. Given the kind of stuff you can do already, hands really shouldn't be too much of a problem to get the hang of.

    Anyway, that painting in particular has issues with form and proportion. Your feet are two different sizes, and the value makes her limbs look flat and rubbery.

    Oh, hi everyone! Hope you all are well, and thank you for popping by with your input, you gave me a super nice surprise!


    Hey Joona! Good to see you're back in the game too. : ) And thanks for the observations! That particular piece and I had quite a few scuffles along the way, so it's good to know where I came up short, or long, regarding that neck. (I didn't even notice until your post and now its glaring at me, yikes.)
    Definitely gotta get that value stuff down.

    AllyAlbon, thank you! I just cant stop drawing my Lola Bunny, and she really loves the attention don't let her fool you. Someday Id like her design to look more polished like the stuff in your sketches, they're awesome. : )

    David_Lital ! Did you know I greatly enjoy the word "fluffy"? everything about it! haha, fun facts aside, thank you very much for your kind words. lets both keep chugging along, yes?

    Oh my goodness, Rhubix! Firstly, Mary Blair is a huuuuuuuuge inspiration to me and has definitely been a source of guidance as I start from rock bottom of color theory, she was just such an incredible artist and woman.
    And I really appreciate that insight into the industry. (like, you have no idea) Basically, you want to prove to be well rounded and adaptable, yes? Good thing I love everything about animation, so I accept your challenge, Thank you thank you!

    Mr-Joe, you got me! I'm still recovering from hand-itis, which I suffered GREATLY before taking my artistic future seriously. I really gotta focus more on breaking old habits like that. And wow! Talk about taking a "hands on approach" eh eh? That was awful, sorry. But the reference you provided is amazing! Extensive maybe, but still crazy helpful, thank you for sharing it! Keep it up or take it down, I'm still saving those goodies to my drive regardless. : )

    Olay, many thanks from myself and my bunny too ^^ And your opinions/critiques are just as valuable as anyone else's on this site, okay? You could be in the fetal position sucking your thumb and I'd happily take your critique if you got it. : )
    And oh yes, life studies are truly the best. I can certainly do with an increase of my life dosage, and I hope you keep em up too!

    Erikly and Mmode, many thanks to you both~

    Hi again, Psychotime! Thanks for dropping back in, and for also calling me out on my "condition". (I woulda got away with it too) I've got some medicinal studies coming up that are greatly overdo to my new pro-hand lifestyle. ; ) And I totally get that flat, rubbery vibe you mentioned. Maybe I need to start breaking down some more rendering basics here soon, alongside that value stuff. I hope you've been well since my earlier posts~



    Again, you guys are really helping me out here, what with my portfolio still under construction, and to be sent out to schools by the end of Jan LATEST. I'm shooting for the most scholarships I can possibly get, or it's no dice. So better art = better moonies. And I think I'm already a bit closer to my goal after reading everything. You rock.

    thank you kindly, TNiznet! : )

    And here's what Ive been up to. The first two are hand studies, inspired by the good eyes who noticed the lack of such grabby things. Then there's a quick portrait of my boyfriend, a pastel piece, more bunnies, and doodles etc.
    The gestures are going into my LCAD portfolio, which is my top priority. Their animation portfolio guideline calls for only 3 pgs of gestures and the rest is character design, expression sheets, and story telling drawings. (still trying to quite understand that one).
    that being said, I think I'm mostly done with the gesture part, (maybe? ah!)

    oh and I drew eggs, too. o_o

    Ok glad you could save those files, I was just browing the sketchbook threads, and noticed that pointing that out(the hands) could be helpful, and on a whim decided to post a reply in your thread, I was lazy and did not want to find a less excessive method of getting you that reference that I found myself to be helpful, I appologize to post so many images and intrued into your thread.

    For your portfolio; Storytelling is think of the saying " a picture tells a thousand words", try to exagerate all aspects of a story in picture form... I dont know how to make that make sense, but if you have a concept, or a story, say for example a sentance, or a paragraph that tells some sort of story, find a way to illustrate it in 1 image, use your knowledge of what ever medium your using to express that story so that the viewer can summerize it into the literal sense. That might make no sense, but I hope it can help.

    See, that's what I thought, but I guess the wording has been throwing me off. Because by definition, that sounds like an illustration. But if it were like an illustration then wouldn't they use that word illustration? @_@ Bah, sorry. Maybe I should stop worrying about word choice and just draw...hehe. Thank you, by the way. Now I know for sure what to aim for when creating those peices.

    Woo New Year!

    I totally forgot about these animal doodles I did at the state fair back in October. The petting zoo was unbelievable, they had a giraffe!

    These are going in the portfolios for sure. Maybe I should go back and at least add some shading to everything....or does that "void" the from life part .__.

    Anyway, I also found a self portrait from November. I need to seriously push these more, instead of just doodling for 15 minutes and move on.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. I'm seeing improvement in your work just within two pages. Your recent gestures are really nice and have wonderful line quality. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for coming to my sketchbook, Dizzy :3. I really like your characters, they remind me of a show I watched when I was younger. Can't wait to see more =]

    Good luck on your portfolio!! I have a quick suggestion for this dude below- hair changes and his hand is backwards. With clean up drawings you need to be pretty meticulous. Do you have any character rotations? I've done a few million at work, and I'd be happy to check them for you or if you have perspective stuff- I'm not terrible at that either.

    I love these, holy crap: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1356930200

    And they're only 30 seconds?! How are you getting those super-clean lines? It looks like you're drawing longer lines here and there, and carrying fold lines all the way over to the other side of the form. Interesting. Any other pointers on how these are done?

    Anyway, cute work in general.
