    Trying to stay encouraged and consistant.

    Hello everyone.

    I'm an aspiring animator looking to make my way some how into the video game industry. I realized after finishing school that having a strong traditional background is pretty important especially when it involves pre-production and I've always wanted to improve as an artist over all just haven't had the drive nor the motivation to stay consistent. After seeing the sketch book of someone who started here in 2002 and has become a great artist, I definitely felt motivated to try and do the same so hopefully this will happen for me and I hope some of you will come along for the journey.

    My biggest goal for now is getting better at posing so that I can improve my animations and I'm definitely more inclined to learning human characters so I plan to stick to a lot of figure drawing and anatomy studies. So..with that being said here is my first drawing.

    Not to nit pick on my work but the biggest thing I notice is I'm an outliner. I feel the need to outline to keep the shape of everything and you can kind of see that. I probably spent maybe an hour on this one.

    Trying to stay encouraged and consistant.

    I'm going to be consistent and more importantly and going to try and actually learn more as well cause I'm tired of being stuck in the same spot when it comes to my drawing.

    I decided to go with photoshop today my last one was on bristol. I spent about an hour with it. It's been a while since I've worked with my tablet. I get pretty lost when it comes to proportions and details always trying to figure out what to do next.

    Tried my hand at quickpose.com found a lot of fun in it but I definitely felt some fatigue. I decided to go ahead and still do some more figure drawing didn't spend as much time as I usually do. I also decided to draw later on in the day yesterday after seeing a picture of one my favorite fighting game characters. You may be able to guess who he is.

    The scanner doesn't quite pick up everything. I've been using a 2H pencil on bristol. I feel like it's best for getting the gesture and shape but I might just start using a color pencil or hb instead.

    I've been slacking on the drawing due to things happening this week trying to get back into the swing of things. I'll probably try doing a lot of quick poses for the rest of the week. Wish I could know the difference between going in the right direction or just playing about..any here are some quick poses I did while pausing some fighting game matches I was looking at.

    Did some more quick poses from another fighting game this week. Don't quite know which direction to go in this week I definitely want to try stuff with more detail. I have fun with doing the poses though.

    I think the sketches in post #9 are looking really cool and fluid. You should try and keep posting more of those fast gesture drawings! Keep it up!

    I once went to buy macaroni and came back with no macaroni, a new tablet, and monitor, so yeah, I can be impulsive.

    Thanks I'm definitely going to take the advice I was starting to feel like it was going to be that kind of week

    I didn't really feel like drawing at all today but I wanted to stay consistent so I decided more quick poses would be best. You might notice who this character is. There is a really awesome fan made fighting game circulating around at the moment that has him and his cohorts. I can only hope that maybe one day I'll be able to do something just as wonderful.

    I've been trying to keep the mind set of not going back and forth with my pencil noticing many of the advanced artist are so sure in their stroke I wanted to be more sure in mine.

    Did some more quick poses today from quickposes.com. I was a 3rd of the way through when I realized I was drawing with a 2H pencil. It doesn't really pick up well in the scanner so I went over them doing my best not to alter the original sketch in anyway.
