    Problems from this week:
    1. Draftsmanship issues: Symmetry and skewing, drawing straight parallel lines, circles, ellipses
    2. Still drawing with a loose envelope aka everyone is wearing baggy clothing, will study more anatomy and try to be more confident with shapes
    3. perspective shifting while finishing drawing- sometimes lapse into auto pilot laziness and random legs or hands come out from subconcious. Need to stay focused and aware when finishing.
    4. Continue working on pre-visualizing and finishing what I had planned, try to deviate as little as possible

    Used google sketchup for the classroom, I think it was helpful in establishing a base to work from.

    -Noticed after posting- I botched up glasses kid pretty bad, proportion, alignment, upper and lower body disconnected.I'll need to study some more slumping/seating positions.

    Wasn't going to post because of how crap everything is but that's not the point of this sketchbook. I'll stay consistent and keep posting once a week.

    I still have a hard time visualizing and planning my next move which is why I struggled so much with this animation. But if I suck at it its probably what I need to be doing so I made a list of things that I want to animate. By the end of it I hope to be seeing images in my head and regain the ability to draw freely.

    Also crouching or poses where there is a lot of overlap are hard for me so I will work on that.

    1st page was from Skullgirl's Ms. Fortune then a mix of reference and imagination

    For this week, heavy reference and working slower, one imagination page.
    The skewing in the symmetrical drawings are still killing me and crunched poses are a lot harder than stretched positions

    Your animation is really cool!
    Some really nice gestures in your poses.
    Since you mention having problem polishing your drawings how about doing some life studies? and taking them as polished as you can, it doesn't have to be just people, they can be studies from objects too.
    Or you could try copying a pose from a photograph and making it as rendered as you can.

    Been away for a bit. Even if I stop posting I wont stop drawing.

    I am definitely taking your + other's advice and trying to slow down and polish my work.

    I tried to do slower studies mixed in these batches even though it doesn't look like it. I will have to work up my capacity for detail and learn to finish one step at a time.

    A ton of reference of other artists, and photos this time around.

    Sorry these animation studies are way too sloppy especially since I have the source material right in front of me. I should be able to replicate the sequences better. Just need to put more care and time into each one next time.

    All studies are ref except for the gambit/ ninja gambit(?) poses. I also did some direct copies out of animator Toshi's book. Instead of posting my copies I'm just going to post some scans and promote him instead. His form and structural sense is pretty damn amazing and he has got me thinking about designing the poses rather than just bsing it.

    Always wondered if people were able to actually see the figures on the page before they start drawing. I have an incredible hard time with that and can't one shot my ideas.

    adding some structure studies in addition to quicker gestures. The colored one was me trying to practice some patience from a cosplay photo. It is not my design, Yang from RWBY? nor did I come up with the pose.

    I must be retarded or something but I am still having a difficult time nailing the pose that I want out of my head. For example if I want to draw someone doing a kamehameha from a specific overhead 3/4 angle it doesn't come easy. Sometimes i get confused on shoulder/hip direction, what the legs are doing, which way the hands are facing...

    I got frustrated so I resorted to chibi. I have to give it full concentration and turn off all music, slow down, stand up and do it myself, close my eyes and really think for a few moments. I don't know if anyone else has as much difficulty with this as I do and if you know any exercises to help?

    Maybe I will just start daydreaming more, start watching images in my head running, swinging swords, throwing punches, or repeating sports highlights. Maybe spend some time just watching and not drawing or pick up a sport/dance that emphasis body/spatial awareness.

    One of my favorite deviant artists and storyboard artist for Kora, Xshaunx (i think) mentioned he is/was a gymnastics coach. It would make sense that is why he is able to create such great poses from mind.

    If you fail at something, you suck at it, so trying is therefore the first step towards being sorta good at something!

    I have a sketchbook and a deviantArt! FurAffinity and pixiv too if you can find 'em.

    Hey Disciple! You've drawn so many lovely figures and gesture drawings, its been great looking through your sketchbook so far The fact that you're looking to animation drives your art to become looser and free.The fire breather in post #39 Wow~the character himself looks pretty well thought through and the poses look very natural.I can only really tell you to keep the passion you have and draw, you have a really good vibe going!
