    Blue-magpie's Sketchbook - Aiming to become a Character Designer

    So I'm working towards becoming a Character Designer. I've had very little art experience prior to this summer, on occasion I would draw for a bit before getting bored and I didn't pursue it as a subject in secondary school.

    EDIT: Hooray, managed to sort everything out after some technical problem. Here's my work from mid-July (Part 1):

    Part 2! - Sorry for the really faint gesture drawings, although it is probably for the best hahaha:

    August - Thus Far

    All of my progress so far as of yesterday - I'm averaging about 1-4 hours practice a day. A couple of character design are in there, they're pretty bad - particularly the last one *shudder*

    I've been doing a lot of gesture practice - I'm finding it hard to progress beyond rudimentary stick figures and getting shapes in during the 30/45 second time. I'm still in the bad habit of doing short pencil strokes as opposed to longer ones - I also take the pencil of the paper a lot during these sessions.

    Thank you for having a look. Any criticisms/suggestions/advice is greatly appreciated

    EDIT:

    Today's work. I had a go at the 'line of action' method of gesture drawing with mixed to negative results.
