    Lookin good ape, though that gouache study could be better. Its washed out and dull, looks like you were afraid to get thicker and go for more contrast.

    just finished this character design assignment last night, its due today lol. The background was incredibly rushed, however the assignment never asked for one, it was extra, so its only purpose is to push the character. Im gonna retool the background later on. Oh yeah, the cup was added to the first 2 frames, but forgot to resave the jpegs. oh well.

    Sirio_brozzi: Im always around Thanks man

    SirGreensock: Actually, I ran that page through photoshop, and the auto functions took away some of its glitz and glamour. But I do need to keep striving for greater contrast in my paintings. Thanks for the reminder

    DUUUUUUUUUUUUDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! !!!
    that last animation rocked my socks!! can I become your apprentice?
    I so wanna learn to do that!!! imo the best draftsmen have some
    animator blood in them, knowing how to use the main rhythms
    of the body, and give life to a character, all those things are key
    to make a good illustration and you sir are well on your way
    to know how to do those things, very, VERY well

    Nice last set, only thing is the current angle of the shot, its canted(tilted), and that typically is used to convey something amiss or creepy..Which doesnt really fit the mood here too much. Hoping to see an animated version of this nonetheless, really liked the character design.

    sketches from the zoo, and well. the sketchbook. Was hard to do studies of animals because of the distance away from them, my lack of knowledge on their anatomy and skeletal systems, as well as the fact that they just slept all day.

    Maxetormer: Hahaha, your comments are awesome dude! My apprentice? well im still learning myself man! maybe in a few years eh? This is true my friend! all of those factors are very important in creating illustrations that are full of life! After all animation is all about the illusion of life, several of the things i learn while learning animation definitely helps me out illustratively.

    Sirio_brozzi: I wasnt aware that tilting the camera plane like that conveyed that sense of mood, i was just tired of seeing straight on shots all the time. BUT! maybe hes drinking from a cup of... BLOOD! duhdundunnnn!! creepy? amiss? I THINK SO! mwahahahhaa

    Also, here are some recent life drawings. Lots of quick 30 second, and 1 minutes. A few 2s and 3 minutes as well.

    Gorgeous gestures, man. The render of the woman in your sketches is so strong, and I can definitely see you're getting more comfortable and varied in your character's faces. I'd love to see some'mo colored stuff, too!

    Finding things to crit you on is hard, just a heads up. Also I give you 5 starts, because you're just a 5 star kinda dude.

    I quite like that gothy self portrait. It's got a nice mood about it. Only crit I can possibly think (and it may be invalid, take it with a grain of salt), it's a bit too cool, temperature wise. You kinda added a hot green to the eyes, which helps a lot, but I think you might be able to emphasize the darks with a few well-placed highlights on the golden parts of the mantle or hair. Speaking of the mantle, it's pretty flat. You've got that intense white light source, the collar of the mantle should probably be casting a shadow across the shoulder onto the back. And speaking of the bright white light source, why is it only seemingly effecting your face? The jacket and hair aren't catching any of it.

    Those arm studies you have on your March 4th update are rendered nicely, but seem too short. Especially so on the upper arms, and even-more-especially so on the leftmost arm. Watch that shit.

    I really love your stylized faces, they're beautiful and lively. Though I've noticed they usually have a pretty vacant and uncomplicated expression about them. I understand this is probably because you're doing them from life, but it may be beneficial to crack out a mirror and do some really extreme representations of anger, sadness, etc. May be particularly useful to you, as an animator, to capture that kind of intensity.

    Those animal studies are beautiful. Great work, no crits there.

    (You don't play WoW, do you..? I see a lot of WoW stuff.. )

    Those panda caricature are pretty nice. They all look quite similar though, both in expression and shape. I don't know if that's what you were aiming for or not, animation is voodoo to me.

    The gestures are very nice. Maybe try throwing in some rough approximations of planes in there? Unless you only need to know the contours as an animator.. again, voodoo.

    More plz. I'll be keeping an eye on you.

    As the pattern gets more intricate and subtle being swept along is no longer enough.

    just a small update. 1 hour Watercolour portrait study done in class, layout assignment, and some mass effect sketches and studies.

    Sway west: Thanks hope this watercolour study quenches your thirst for some colour work, once this semester is over all summer ill be doing colour studies (hopefully).

    Bludhound: Thanks mate! Ive been getting burnt out lately, due to the heavy workload of school, and keeping a part time job, lookin forward to this summer where i can recharge by concentrating on personal projects.

    Ryn: Sweet! thanks for the stars
    Your crits on the portrait are spot on, The only problem Im having now is finding the willpower to continue working on it!
    The arms are actually a wee bit short for a 6 head scale, which is what i was studying from rather than my usual 8 heads, but proportion is something I always have to watch, or else itll slip away from me. Case in point those arm studies. I do agree on needing more varied expressions, Ive fallen into that habit out of ease, and only push expressions for assignments. Ive started doing some sketches just recently using pushed expressions though, so Ill upload some later on. Thank you, the zoo was a fun time! and yes i do OCCASSIONALLY play WoW, however i doubt ill continue to play it as its become stale and boring IMO. The panda was actually me trying to work out a design for character design, hence the similarities. well, I cant draw fast enough in 30 seconds to show plane lines, well i could, if i wasnt so drained from working 24/7.
    Thanks for awesome critique

    Bunny: Thanks I dont think ill ever stop drawing now, it gets funner but harder by the day LOL

    Designboot: Thanks mate!
