I really love the loose energetic quality to your lines. Your live figure studies are super awesome, I hope I can capture a figure with that much efficiency and elegance once I have a change to really get into model drawing.
(I laughed a little at your post-marko DVD character, I think everybody's next drawing or two after watching that is a post-apocalyptic punk guy with a billion doodads )
You have some really great stuff here! I love the life in all your characters - you're an animation student, I assume?
Maybe you could try emphasizing the lighting on your sketches? The contours are beautiful, and it's a shame you don't take them further. Alas, I understand they are probably all de-stresser doodles. :3
It'd also be neat if you placed more of your figures in spaces. The environment a character is in can really lend to an already well-developed concept. Your sketchbook should be a window into a world you create, don't neglect any elements of that world! Then again, I'd do well to heed that advice myself.
Keep it up dude. Really, you have top notch stuff going on here. S-s-s-subscribed!
New Stuff! Bunch of studies, people sketches, layout ideas, etc etc. Im working on some animations of my own stuff, rather than school work, Ill post some line tests on youtube and then link them when i get around to it!
Woo! some replies! I love you guys and girls
Maxetormer: Id love to do more fully rendered pieces, but the majority of work i post is all school homework and stuff, mainly process sketches and ideas. This takes up the majority of my time, thus leaving me with little time to unwind. Then again thats just an excuse, so ill work harder on getting more finished work out.
Sirio_brozzi: Thanks dude! If I ever work on that sketch again id probably change a ton of stuff, because its a little uninspired looking to me now! LOL
Jtho: Thanks man, I bet you could, just observe the figure, keep in mind where all the tension and strengths of the pose lie, and draw draw draw!
Hahahaha, yeah its true, Ive seen a lot of those posts, post marko dvd!
Ryn: Correct! I love animaton, it gets funner and funner the more I do it! Although the same doesnt hold true for many of my peers. I do actually work on cast lighting my characters from time to time, but its mainly just to figure out planes and what not. My first year here, everything school related is always concentrating on LINE LINE LINE, values and lighting and what not are generally tackled in second year. Although I try to push my work more using line to show shadow and texture. Your right, I generally dont draw enough environments, let alone characters in an environment, however our newest painting assignment is exactly that! so expect to see something similar soon. Thanks good luck on your portfolio entries! you have strong stuff, so Im thinking youll get in no problem.
Wheeljack18: Thanks dude! will do
Lefran: Thank you! they are a TON of fun! hence why i do them so much. Ill work more on finishing concepts though!
That landscape is lookin good, albeit the colours are still not far enough outside your colour comfort zone for me to stop bugging ya!
Ive also noticed that in a number of your face drawings, both from imagination and from life (and especially on guys) you tend to make the face stick out a lot (long jawline or neck connecting too far back) and end up also making the back of the head smaller/shorter to compensate. Dunno if its meant as a stylistic thing, but it stood out to me now with all these profile shots of your classmates and the heads on the second page of the second pic.
Two updates in one day? The end of the world is nigh...
Life drawings from yesterday and the night before. Ill be posting up the ones from today probably around sunday when I finish that newsprint pad.
Zebz & SantaClaus: Thank you to you both
SirGreenSock: Hahaha, I actually messed around with the hue/saturation thing too though, so atleast Im starting to think outside the box. I think it might just be something Ive done forever, and no ones ever mentioned it as wierd. Ill reanalyze how I approach the head the next time I draw some. Thanks duuuude! Yeah, English was never my forte.
more life, seems like its all i do lately! not that i mind of course, good practice.
Sirgreensock: Yeah, I life draw 4 - 5 days a week, and debbie is usually modelling atleast once, sometimes twice that week, atleast in the sessions im in. Shes almost ALWAYS in my instructed life drawing sessions, mainly because in first year we study bones more than anything, and well, debbie is insanely skinny. Hahaha, yeah that was for an assignment, but since I neglected my own perspective lines, that one was a writeoff.
