    Deer's Sketchbook. I need help getting into animation! <3

    Heyooo there! Thanks for dropping by and checking out my sketchbook.

    Edit: Could somebody tell me how to set a picture for my sketchbook? LOL. I'm gonna cry i'm so dumb

    ALSO if you could tell me how to edit the name of this thread, that would be great LOL. I know how to spell 'criticism.' I just. I can't spell at 4 am xD

    I've chosen to go into animation, and I aim to get into Sheridan College right here in Canada! Art has become a part of who I am, and I feel like I need to develop a stronger passion for it, a passion that will drive me to do more work, accomplish more things, and stay committed to my craft. In order to cultivate this artist child of mine, I need to really get out there, make some new artist friends, and become more emotionally invested in my work.

    Thanks again for dropping by! I've never posted here before, so I don't really know how things work, but I'll do my best to keep up xD

    Please do drop me a message so we can talk and become friends and draw things and do each other's hair

    On to my first sketchbook entry! I'm a former student of the Animation Portfolio Workshop, and I'm sure that most of you involved in animation have heard of it from someeeewhere. It's really a great course and I highly recommend it - I don't know where I'd be without the guidance I received there. Anyways, these are some life drawings from that workshop! Please tear my work apart for me. Cx I need to get into this stupid animation program.

    Let's get started! These are some life drawings that were supposed to make it into my portfolio, but I unfortunately was not able to finish on time this year. That's why I didn't get in this year. And yes, it does tear me up from time to time xD

    I used a viewfinder to get the proportions right, then proceeded to do plane changes. Got a bit wireframe-y with them, though. Oops.

    Lovely stuff. Yeah, that workshop really does seem to make its students 'get' 'it' haha. Lots of nice, fluid strokes in your gestures here. I like the 2nd animal one a lot too. Keep posting and keep drawing

    Muddy: Thank you for dropping by and leavin' the kind words of encouragement! I do appreciate the reply. Aha, yeah, sounds like you know a bit about the APW! Are you thinking of taking it?

    Now for an update on assorted figure drawings and the contents of my character development sketchbook! My sketchbook has a lack of colour and value studies for now because the stuff I do is strictly targeting the criteria that Sheridan's animation program is looking at for portfolio evaluations. Also I'm still really embarrassed about my misspelled thread title -.- helppppp

    These are really, really sweet! I love your little squirrel character, and you're figure drawings have really nice flowing lines. Keep 'em coming!
