    Welcome to the Zoo!**Mucha**May 26th**

    The following is some concept work I've done with quadrupeds with hooves in the last year and a half. First up is Pinstripe, a Texan zebra raised by mustangs.

    The snake and the chicken tend to fight all the time like siblings.

    These are the initial drawings of Pinstripe..

    It was brought to my attention that the socks on his legs looked like nylons with garter belts (!) So I changed that, and made his face blockier, more like a male's.

    Some expression sheets - in case you were wondering, these concepts are for an animated children's video.

    A fun one of him in an environment - I really need to draw environments more, they add a lot.
    Welcome to the Zoo!**Mucha**May 26th**

    These are a variety of horses I've done, and some are just horse studies, not any particular character.

    This is Thistle, a young, prickly foal...

    ...and Woodrow, a clydesdale. He started out mean because he was beaten, but his character evovled into one who was proud because of his great size.

    After being taught a lesson, Woodrow is rewarded with wings (imagine, a clydesdale with wings...yikes)

    Some random drawings of horses - they're just plain fun to draw!

    yes, even horse skeletons

    Some harness studies for Woodrow.

    And finally, some drawings of deer I've done. No character development really, but I like to draw them even more than horses for some reason. I think because they're so flexible and can do these amazing things with their bodies.

    Sweeeeeet! So cool to find you posting here!

    I have always loved your work, you could turn a stump into an appealing character. Hope the children's video is going well, and I heard you are working on a side project with a Koala. Someone who saw it said it was as good as any pencil test they had seen from Disney. whoa. Now that is a compliment.

    Have you gotten that script from Marvel yet?

    I will keep an eye on this post for sure, and welcome!

    Hey these are cool. I was just animating a Clydesdale type horse running and a few of these poses served as a good source of inspiration.

    This environment looks really good.

    Keep it up!

    Hey, forgot to say I hope that you will also put up some of your non-quad characters as well, someday when you get time.

    and tagheuer, you have to pay a royalty for that inspiration!

    A pose inspired by Miyazaki that I did this morning. About 30 minutes, I think.

    Welcome to the Zoo!**Mucha**May 26th**

    oomgawa - "You could turn a stump into an appealing character." Is that a challenge? The koala piece is turning out well, actually. You can visit it at my website if you want, but I warn you that until next week the download will be really slow.
    As for Marvel, they did ask if I wanted to try something out with them, but after serious consideration, and trying my own strip, I decided that I don't like doing comics! Animation, on the other hand...sigh.
    Oh yeah, and non-quads...I should get around to those in a week or so.

    TagHeuer - Thanks! Anything to help.

    Lim - No, but thank you for the compliment!

    lim, your i dont know if you intend this but you sound rather snide, if thats the case you should post on some one elses thread because thats not welcome here. give a crit of some respectful sort.
    Oomgawa, this is really gorgeous stuff, it has quite a bit of movement in it and expresses life. these are drawing that a lesser animator would fight for. I think that the character studies are great and respect that you practice the principles that you teach, unlike "cough" other people that I wont mention(CHRIS LILES), I grateful for your support and will never forget the small thing that you did for my during my struggle to get where I am now! THANK YOU.. see you saturday!

    Speaking of slow, I was wondering why this thread was taking so long to download and checked the image sizes in Photoshop. Seems they are 100 ppi instead of 72. You might want to go back and drop the resolution so folks will be more willing to take the time to look at all of the images.

    TheMagnetic - thank you for your kind comments, I hope to keep improving!

    Some more deer - whee!

    I must say Phuzion, your women are very well drawn, and I especially enjoyed studying how you do costumes. This is my pitiful attempt...

    This is some really nice stuff, I must say. The last page isn't nearly as strong as the others, but that's the purpose of a sketchbook, so it's all good

    I think the Zebra is the weakest of the three, but it's still well done. Perhaps it's just the technique that isn't quite working out. The anatomy seems to be getting away from you a bit more than in the others. I think the changes you made to it were deffinately the right ones, but be careful still with silhouetting the hooves. Without showing even just a little overlap in the contour, they'll flatten out a little too much. Still, it's going in a really good direction.

    The horses are going along pretty well. Some of them are falling short, but the exploration is great! And there are some really nice character drawings in there.

    I like the Deer the most. That one is just stellar. There's a lot of character, in both the expressions and the posing. Also, it's a little more unusual in that you don't see many people drawing Deer characters. Horses are done all the time, and after Racing Stripes I'm just jaded on the whole zebra thing, and no, I didn't actually SEE the movie I really like the little warrior guy on the buck. Very Mononoke. The anatomy isn't too solid in that one, on the buck, but I love the concept.

    Overall, these are really nicely executed. Not a whole lot of crits, other than to keep an eye on the anatomy. Also, stay a little more loose and try and capture a liiiittle more flow in the drawings. The ones where they're actually moving a fine, but the standing ones look a little too stiff. Stagger the legs a bit to avoid having all four in the same position, that will help to make them a bit more interesting. Also, another minor note is on the front legs of all the species, they are actually a little knock-kneed in reality. The legs aren't totally straight... they should taper in from the shoulder to the knee, and then taper back out from the knee to the hoof. If look at some of your reference, you'll see what I'm talking about. It's minor, but it makes all the difference, and also allows for more character choices. Anyway! Carry on! You're doing fiiiiiiine. Peace

    dorian - Thanks mucho, and your sketchbook thread is pretty nice too - keep it up!
    Phuzion - Wow! Great crit, I really appreciate it. I don't know why I find standing poses more difficult than action. But since it's the weaker, I'll focus on it a bit more for a while.

    In honor of Phuzion's critique, a little humor... Standing for inspection!
    Welcome to the Zoo!**Mucha**May 26th**
    I whipped these out, so the proportion's a little off, but hopefully the stances are a liiitle more interesting. It's back to the anatomy for me - it has been awhile, and obviously one starts forgetting!
