    Maki's Sketchbook - My journey as I learn to draw

    Hello!

    My name is Martin, and I'm a CG character Animator living in Sweden. I've been in the industry for about two years and worked with commercials and a feature film. A couple of months back, I decided it was time for me to learn how to draw. Since animation is a lot about your poses I figured that a good understanding of the human figure would help me reach better poses faster. Also... it's a life long dream of mine to be able to draw like the disney guys So here I am! I started an instagram to log my process, but I figured more people would see my stuff and comment on it here, so i'll do both!

    I don't know what I can offer in return for you guys help, maybve if anyone has questions about animation? I'd be more than happy to answer those

    Thank you!

    Oh! And if anyone is interested, my website (where you can see some animations I've made) is at martinjoas.com and my Instagram is here: CLICK!

    More shape practice but I wanted to start thinking with colors and light. I think that can really help with the appeal of the drawing.

    Hi Naonik!

    Usually, I start by drawing a random shape, then I add a smaller shape on top of that, and then an even smaller. This usually makes an idea POP in to my head, and I'll start to flesh out the drawing

    LONG time ago since I posted, but here is an update with one of my latest drawings I've started using markers more and more and I really like the messy feel you can get with them.
