Something A Little Different



Here's some life drawing for you. It was an hour long study using the "wipe and erase" technique with Conte. The closest I have come to finishing a long study to boot!

This drawing also marks my newest attempt at trying to post consecutively.
So. Day 1 of 1.
Enjoy.

Strike Two

So. Missed it again....
The record still stands at four days. I didn't even beat last week, how lame.
Have an animation assignment to make up for it.

Some Actual Animation

video
This is the only real animation assignment we had last semester. A four legged walk, most people doing a dog, and the same dog model. I was relatively pleased with mine. Tail is doing some wonky things, but that's what happens when you save it for last and run out of time.

Enjoy

(Day 3 of 3, on a roll.)

Taking Out The Trash


All the old Junk is finally off my main page.
About time. D=<

This is another drawing I did for "Mom's Fridge." The theme was Gangsters or Gangstas. Used the older model for the chick, since it's more my style then the revised turnaround one.
So Yeah. Quick sketch. Enjoy.

Stay Classy.
(Day 2 of 2!)

It's Monday


And so begins round two of trying to post consecutively.

These are my thumbnails for one of my scenes I am animating. Most of my other thumbs are really rough and gestural (for me) but I was having alot of trouble getting this guy on model, so I did some very detailed thumbs at a size I'm comfortable drawing at. The action has actually changed quite a bit since I've started animating it.

That's it for me!
Cheers.

So Close....


I almost made it a whole week of posting. Almost! Better luck next week I suppose....
Four days is still my longest running streak of posting though. =D
To make up for it, I have posted on the weekend! D=<
It's my establishing shot for my movie, cleaned up, and then redone in photoshop. Still have to colour it....
Another Time.

As a five year old said to me earlier today, PEACE OUT!

Sir Lady Knight



We set up this thing in my animation class called "Mom's Fridge" where we post up our drawings on one side of the classroom. To encourage people to draw their characters, we set a theme on a bi-weekly basis. It actually all evolved from a couple of them deciding to draw their characters in puffy princess dresses. So, Here's my knight in his lovely formal wear. Doesn't he look pleased?

Enjoy.

I love Sleep.



So I guess I'm in the wrong program. But when I'm sick, that's all I want to do, so it wasn't a very productive day.... But I didn't forget to post! Do you know what that means?
I'm on a Roll. >=D

Above is an early design of my female character, and the only one I like. I seem to have reverted to this design while animating her. Not complaining.
And then I decided to add on my rough tree and bush designs I did for figuring out the style of my film. Thems be some wonky bushes.... but at least they're simple.

Cheers!

Close Call!


So here I am, sitting at home, getting ready to go to bed...

And it hits me. I didn't post on my blog! And I don't have my scanner hooked up!

Luckily, I was able to drag something out of the dustbin just in the nick of time.

He's a D&D character I made a couple of years ago for a campaign that never took off. Sad, I know. But I still like him. Botched his crossbow thing in there, by the way. I think it was originally a gun, but I switched it while colouring...


Enjoy.

It's Monday.



And I've posted the second consecutive weekday in a row.

I think that's a Record.

Above are some rough initial designs of my main character for my film.
...still kind of prefer this shape over the new one, but whatever.
Also did some expressions for him to figure out his face. The type of expression came from this 25 Essential Expression Challenge I found on deviantart.
Never did do them all...
Anyways, see you tomorrow! =D

Oh Man,



So.... it's been a while, eh?
I am aspiring to make a post every weekday for the rest of the semester. We'll see how long that lasts.
As a quick recap, I am now in my third and final year of Animation, and working on my film. The above character rotations are from said film. There'll be more to come! =D
