Vritra: Glad to be of help.
Blud: Thanks man.
Just a small poo.
Listening to Dune (audiobook) for the first time. I love sci-fi that's a mishmash of low-tech and hi-tech.
This is along the lines of how I picture the cool dudes from Atriedes.

Nice landscape and face studies. I like the animation demo. My only comment is when it gets to the part when the robot picks up the pony. It could have a slight squish and retraction. (Not sure of the proper term) Just a personal preference.
Congrats on getting the teaching position. I think you'll do fine
It maybe stressful at first applying to the same job as your friend. Keep in mind the job has to go to someone and be happy it is either you or your friend. When your plate is full, pass those extra gigs to your friends and they will do the same for you.

PK: Thanks, dude. I like your suggestion on squashing the pony.
Studies after Rune Bennicke. He's pretty much a god.

ZOMG! Dune is so awesome. I personally think that Frank Herbert is a genius and that Dune
should be required reading in high school. So many great ideas about ecology and society
and human nature, and a truly unique sci-fi universe. The audiobook is also one the highest
quality audiobook productions, with a full cast.
This Bennicke guy seems pretty cool. You know I've been thinking, ever since you said that
you went to school for animation...we really haven't seen very much animation-type stuff
from you, mostly fine art type studies and concept designs. How about some character
sheets? Or some dynamic sketches? Be good to get the lead out.
Also have you read Mattesi's Force? I still have to go back to that never finished it
even though I have a bunch of notes.
Anyway man, keep rockin'
sketchbook...a kitten dies every time you don't comment

the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
the work is likely to sprawl.”

Blud: Dune is totally amazing, yes.
About animation stuff. Firstly, many of the greats in animation had their roots in fine art, and/or were trained academically.
Secondly, style. You already know about my utter disorientation/perturbation/turmoil about style, and unlike illustration or concept, style is a necessity in animation.
You can't draw a cartoon without style and you certainly don't want to animate a realistic figure.
So, that's why I don't do it.
EDIT: 'Force'. I've heard it's good, but haven't read any of it yet.
Also, bikes are hard to draw.

Flask: Cheers, bud.
Farvus: Thanks, mang. It's Bammes indeed.
Haven't been on the forums much because the site only works half the time for me. Not sure whether it's my connection or the supposed work being done on the CA servers.
Anyway, been kinda slack. Gotta kick it up a notch, or a few.

So just finished the indie game 'Bastion' the other day. Beautiful.
A tribute (WIP)

hi dude, your studies on post 678 are wonderful !! great expressions ! Now, for the rest of your sketchbook, i think your main weakness is your ability to represent the volumes of what you're drawing, and i see you're working hard on it, so keep it up !! maybe try to do more observational exercises like drawing your hands, which is great for learning volumes and foreshortenings, and selfportraits for structure and facial features ! Keep it up dude !
