great update! altho i was wondering...have u considered doing a more longer and fully rendered study? those can really help you improve
keep up the hard work man
Ah, cripes, it's been over a month?! Well, better late than never. Crunch time at work has nearly passed, so tonight I had some time to make it to the life drawing session at the ol' Alma Mater...wait, "ol' Alma Mater?" Is that redundant? Pff, I don't care--It's drawings time.
The dude's face at the session tonight was exactly how I might describe "old-timey." Large, crooked nose, jutty eyebrows, round skull, and a fantastic moustache. Seriously, it has to be seen to believed. Here, look:
Just put him in a leopardskin leotard with two 1-ton canonballs on either end of that pole, and you have an instand "Strong-Man" from the Circus of Yore.
Also, I've been trying to work on my painting skills a bit more. It hasn't helped that my tablet is being a crap-head. Hopefully I can get it working again soon so I can finish this...
(I had a bad day at work... )
Now, to the sketchbook! What talent! I am guessing from the style that you are MW. So glad to see you teamed up with the AI of S crew I worked on that animation with. You are all a class-act! Can't wait to see the animations, I am no fan of furries, but with you guys working on them, furries will gain respect in my eyes.
I am definitely subscribed to your sketchbook, so keep em coming!
oomgawa - Well, you won't see any furies any time soon from us. That project got nixed. (we're still dry on ideas, Sketch - wanna take the plunge and start something? We're game!)
I'm really liking your hand studies btw - very elegant! Perchance could we see some more finished life drawings, even just of hands or feet? Or do the models not do half-hour/hour poses anymore?
Wow, what a groovy lil' sketchbook you have here!
Lovin' your work, man.. your excellent figure drawing, your socktopus ... everything looks cool.
More pics, pleez!
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
Hey! Check out my blog here
Hey, all! Sorry, no sketches this time--I know it's been a while. My computer is in need of some tender, loving repair at the moment, so I'm not quite as capable of updating as I would like to be. I'll have 'er in working order soon, hopefully, and with that, an exceptionally large update--I may not have updated in awhile, but I've certainly not stopped drawing.
Now then, your comments:
alesoun: Thanks! The faster, the better, says I.
oomgawa: Yep, it's me, alright. I'm glad we've teamed-up, too, and I'm even more excited about our potential. If we can just get a project that simple enough to finish in a decent amount of time, but complex enough for people to care about, and fun enough to like...aye, there's the rub! By the way, Kentucky is a pretty decent model if I do say so myself. Ask Teigrob.
Teigrob: Elegant, eh? I always thought they were a bit scratchy, but I'll not let the fallen hat touch the floor before I take elegant as a compliment.
And yes, taking that plunge sounds like a great idea. As soon as I get some free time, I'll write up a treatment or two, perhaps... However, as far as finished life drawings go, I've actually been avoiding them. I miss 2D animation so much, that when I make it to a life drawing session, I can't help this yearning to put some gestures down, though by the time I get there, they've moved on to longer poses already and I'm left drawing cold (hence the gestures of my fellow attendees). It ain't easy being a working man, I tell ya. Kids today--THEY DON'T KNOW HOW GOOD THEY HAVE IT!! I need to go to bed.
AmontilladoAg: Thanks very much! More coming soon--I hope.
PS: I've seen Ratatouille twice, now. How many times have YOU seen it? Well, it's not enough; go again. I'm gonna.
