    Sketchthread of Hazaeon - Begginings of an Animation course

    Hi.

    My name's Harry and I've just started a course on traditional animation at the Arts Institute at Bournemouth.

    So far it's excellent, total dedication to drawing, an intesive course.
    Human and animal Anatomy, perspective, Composition, colour theory, life drawing a plenty, all to come

    Any comments and crits would be really apprieciated, Over this next year i want improve my drawing as much as is humanly possible.

    My old username was Hazamataz and the sketchbook is here, http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=50813

    Below are
    Photopaints I did before the course started. (Artrage)
    Sketches from around bournemouth
    Studies are artists of past, Michelangelo & Tiepolo, truly genious.
    And a few life drawings,

    The first fourweeks main focus is studying (not mindlessly copying) the masterful artists of the past,
    understanding their drawing technique, particularly linework, and applying it to our own drawing
    Apparently if we do it properly the results will be amazing,
    I've learnt lots so far, i'll let you know how it turns out

    i thought the paintings at the start of your post were brilliant... or at least something close to it. especially this one

    just found a blog with useful notes from an animator, perhaps you know it, but check it out...

    Cheers Tensai

    That storyboard stuff looks quality, I'd really like to get into storyboarding at some point.

    The image you posted was my own Photo from somewhere called "The Snake Pass Inn" in Peak District in the UK, the other two paintings were from a photography book.

    And i painted them all in Artrage with oils and alot of pallette knife, Artrage really is greatfun, so much so I gave it to my grandpa!

    i'm dumb, is artrage a program?

    in any case, the paintings are stunning. great color practice, that's for sure.

    the drawings and sketches are very nice also. i really like the pencil house with the garbage bins -- it looks so quaint and last-century-lotsa-detail until you look at those 50 gallon garbage bins, hehe.

    Art rage is a simplified painting program
    http://www.artrage.com/artrage.html (artrage 2 is the latest one i use)

    There is a free version with the oil brush and pallette knife, which is all i really need at the moment.

    haha i'm not a salesman for artrage though, i just think it's pretty cool.

    Thanks, that house is the new student house I moved into while I'm on this course.

    Hey Harry! Looking good so far and I cant wait to see how u develope. A few problems I see in the paintings is the distance, they dont quite seem distant enough or separated from the foreground. Perhaps you could pale them down, maybe use some layers? Also, maybe add more atmospheric perspective on the landscape. The blue and yellow pieces can do with a bit of those to help bring the viewers into the painting.
    See you around.

    The next batch of work from my course. Moved on to artists studies of Egon Schiele, and Tiepolo. Both masters of linework and verydifferent. The artists studies has really shown me what good linequality is and let me experience it, really has helped me. Anyone considering it, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

    Quite a few drawings from life in the style of the artist, another key to the learning process.

    And a still life painting in there.

    Plenty more to come

    Uk verses Scandinavia thunderdome. Lots of fun, but also very challenging and difficult in parts.

    The theme was "The Journey" and it was inspired by a story in mythology about how the norse people/vikings originated from the trojans. They escaped troy and created a city (near turkey apparently) , but Odin (in this story he is mortal, and king and a prophet) saw him and his people would prosper in the northern lands and so emigrated all the way up there, That would havebeen an incredible journey and I tried to capture this in the painting.

    Good Sciele studies. These studies are paying off! OK crits....
    You should plan out what your going to draw or paint first. This piece could have done with a portrait layout rather than landscape because the bottom is cropped off.

    This one is really good, but to take it a stage further I wouldve put a little bit of darks on the palm to bring that close part (in the highlkight) forward more.
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1166054781

    This one is hilarious Got the Schiele style there no doubt.
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1166054849

    The pen hatching work is another level! Especially this piece. However I think the highlights on the back could be more noticeable, I know its subtle in real life but its too subtle here imo.
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1166054884

    And please do more linework like this one or I'll have to kill you

    Great work here Harry! I really like your landscapes - very atmospheric with a great use of texture and colour, although some of the compositions are a little divided down the middle. Using thirds could help here.

    I'd like to see some figures from imagination. It's a good way of testing what you know and furthering your understanding, while highlighting what you should practice most in our life drawing classes.

    Keep it up

    Hi, recent updates from the AIB

    observational sketches from the Christchurch priory (Awesome place), tank museum!! and sculptures from bournemouth art gallery

    Also loadsa life drawings that i forgot to bring up, I'm going twice a week now and many even three times so I'm REALLY wanting to up my skills. ADVICE muchos appriecieated. I'm gonna do more artists studies of life drawing I like, I've been practicing loomis skeletons as well, and a might committ rime to really reading through figure drawing for all it's worth by Loomis
    Cheers for the suggestionEmptymind i'm working on those poses from imagination, i just forgot to scan em in. Infact i'm working on more imaginational drawing, funny how you can forget to do something you love in the sea of theory and studies

    and thanks Bendragon for your suggestions, taken on board.

    OMG what an update! You've got some really great work here and your doing so much! I like your perspective studies in last post, as well as the colours you use throughout your paintings. Nice to see your getting so much life drawing done, it will really help, as I think the improvements are evident in your every post. Really nice sketchbook, keep up the good work!
