First up is this imaginative painting ive been doing, its going to go through alot before its done. I may even scrap everything and redo it. Ive just gotten a fairly long crit on ConceptArt which I havent actually read yet but hopefully that will help because Ive been looking for some advice on composition. Also I think I might try making a fake brief and deadline for myself, why not right?
This was a 10 minute or so opener for an animation test I put up on youtube. It was a college project, to animate a character walking, front view. I chose to draw a frog man for some reason :P A funny thing about it is, when I was done. I started bobbing my head and I found myself humming stayin alive by the beegees, long story short I put it behind the animation. check it out : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuSwx-XEiDg
Sketches using references, just for fun. Drawing from life or ref is always so much more relaxing for me, I think its because I know the result will be ok at worst and I can make believe I created something :)
Cool exercise I tried following some ones advice on CA. I drew once from ref, and then from my head in a different position and adding to it. (click image to see bigger)
MEGA BOARD! Painting outside is annoying for me :P the tubes are everywhere, I have to hold up a board, its uncomfortable. And it just sucks basically. SO I need some board that has everything right there and its so sturdy all I need to worry about is getting the brush into the paint and then onto the page. When you gota hold the pallete as your taking paint and all that crap it just breaks the concentration.
