great anatomy sketches Jason, I'm only starting to get into drawing people. Last time I drew a nude figure was at Central Technical School in 1999 on Bloor St., they had models posing for art class.
Yeah that into video definitely kicks ass!
Keep doing your anatomy studies!
I would suggest you to do full figure drawings/paintings from your imaginary to check what you really learned and what still needs to improve!
That video... hilarious, if i had a company i would employ you just because of it!
So I pussed out of LMS. Yes, big phail. But I learned something from my pussout; I need to learn how to restrain myself. I have to solidify proportions and faces etc before I jump into throwing colour on canvas. Plus I need shit loads of more study.
An actual art update may follow tonight, but for now a commercial that got me applause (suprised me ) during a presentation.
For school, I redesigned wacom's (current) atrocious corporate identity and set out on a branded campaign. The focus was to show the old implements of various fields as stumbling blocks and showing wacom tablets and input devices as easier.
This is specifically geared towards novice and casual designers/illustrators, so great emphasis is on approachability and fun while retaining a professional look.
Funny title. (For those in the future it was "Welcome to PAINVILLE, population YOU"). I also enjoyed the pdf intro and the wacom commercial. Good clarity of the various muscles in the anatomy line drawings.
"Beliefs are rules for action"
"Knowledge is proven in action."
"It's use is it's meaning."
Heehee I find the little wandering "W" on the commercial vid amusing and somewhat.. cute xD
Why did you back out of the LMS? I won't take "I didn't think my work was good enough" for an answer now!
Edit: ok I saw your reply over at the ES forums

Insanity is the key!
Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

Really nice commercial, man. I like the shoot em up kind of atmosphere and how you handled the business field names. The pacing was kinda slow at times and I thought the interruption could have been replaced with the W finally setteling somewhere and the full logo assembling. But that's just nitpicking. I like it
Aila WELL, I could have forced myself to finish it, but it would have been shit without a total redo. But really the main reason is that I've been CRAZY busy lately. I have a website to finish, I'm part of the 'layout team' for the class pdf, so I've been having that to do, along with whatever other projects are going on.
Jabo Thanks Can you explain the 'shoot em up' bit?
Very amazing anatomy work, I have very little of my traditional sketches on the internet due to the lack of a scanner. I see that your anatomy could be in a book, but some of your faces are a bit awkward in regards to angles and the way the hair settles. But fantastic shading and light
You've got some amazing stuff in here, man. The dragon you posted earlier this page is superawesome, as is your take on Sonic (though I doubt it'll catch on with people like Chasethehedgehog). Loving the anatomy stuff.
really cool book man, your anatomy studies are paying nicely but some of your figures from imagination are still looking stiff to me, i don't know exactly what it is but maybe is the balance or the perspective. Try balancing the weight of your figure playing with the bigger masses, and use the middle line of the gesture in the figure to figure out the perspective too.
This one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1202096801 and this one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1207274314 are my favourites from the latest batchs, and the gestures.
Anyways, cool as hell book.
Meemoseep Thanks. Yeah I'm hoping that I can devote some time to face studies, I'm really weak in them right now
Diego I know exactly what you mean with the 'stiffness' of some of my figures. It always feels like when I make a doodle it's nice and flowy, but when I sit down and think something out and try to do it all nice-like, it looks really forced. Maybe I'll try some more gestures.
Jabo Ahhhh I gotcha. I was thinking "wtf does it have to do with that over-the-top movie?"
