    Alex's Sketchbook + Digital Studies

    Hello,

    I'm new to these forums. I'm 22, and I will finish my Fine Arts degree in about a year. I can't say I've ever been particularly confident in my art. It always seems to be so lackluster compared to others, and I greatly fear that I will not be hired. It is very uncommon, but I would like to become a foreign animator in Japan, despite the conditions of the industry. I know I'm not good enough for that, so I'm trying to "get good" as fast as I can in time for graduation and my Senior Show. Despite my interest in anime, I definitely prefer the more realistic styles of the catagory, such as Katsuhiro Otomo, and Koji Morimoto.

    I am very interested in critiques, if anyone is interested in speaking their mind. I know that my art is very poor, depressing even, but I still hope to improve. Thank you.

    Hello Matsuda, good job, your are good photographic vision and i think you are a good potential. For the drawing, life drawing try to do a assignement , ex gesture or structure ( it's better traditionnal or on paper ) see glen Vilppu, michael hampton and lightly different in the gesture steve huston and chris legaspi. Because u see the line to the body but u training enought for the gesture and structure, that's why it's flat. After you will can training with the shadow but one things at a time.
    I thinking that you done it's cool but you don't control the basic tools for improve your draw.
    I hope that my opinion is literal and this will give a new way.
    Keep it up man

    I'll second Vilppu. I have watched only two videos so far, and I've learned so much already. He has everything from the very basic to advanced figure drawing and anatomy

    I'm not sure that I fully understand... What do you mean about line and body? I will certainly check those guys out, I bet they're pretty good.
