Love and Beauty Shock

I've totally been procrastinating by sketching sailor soldiers, I'm not gonna lie. I've been wanting to draw something like this for awhile, so I'm glad to get it out of my system. A few more will be posted soon. I think I'm going to do a Jem series too. I wish there was a more modern show of it today. Christy Marx, if you ever want to make a new Jem show, I would totally love to redesign them.

Anyway, back to the grindstone!

Quick Sketch/Life Drawing Dump

Some sketches I did at a coffee shop.

Some figure drawing of Bonny last week. We were supposed to egaggerate. I like drawing hair on all my girls. It's one of my favourite things.

Kitsune Storyboard

I got a surprisingly good grade on this storyboard. I was worried that because of the tones in this one, I was going to be recieving a bad grade, but I got a 19/20 and a blue star! Pretty sweet!

Here's the FX stuff I did in TVPaint, or at least one of them. Britt might like this. Mermaid.

Weekly Sketches/Life Drawing Dump

So the model this week was terrible. So terrible in fact that I ended up doodling the whole time. I think it's apparent that I'm getting better at the mens.

These are some sketches related to my comic, Lapis. I've been changing/adding characters. That guy on the right has hair, not a hood. Anansi's butt isn't that creepy in reality.

25 Essential Expressions

I did mine of my character, Anansi, who was totally fun to draw for this. I hope to have time to do more in the future.

We had to re-envision a small scene from Disney's Alice in Wonderland. There's a few errors but I'd love to fix it up and possibly put it in my demo reel.

A little old lady we had to rough out who slips and falls on a banana peel. We had to show contrast in our keys to help create more interesting animation. The siren was an added bonus.

Another re-envision excercise we did in class. I really wanted to display his emotions here.

Figure Drawing

The latest batch. The last one's of Reetta. I loved her bedhead.

The Procrastination Stops Here

Or at least I'm trying to curb it a little bit. When I told a classmate the other day that I rarely sketched or doodled without being asked to, she was really shocked to hear me say that, which made me feel kind of ashamed. No one can get better without some discipline, so I'm going to try to post at least once a week with some sketches, animations, and maybe a character design or two once the design club gets off the ground.

The girl at the bottom was actually a character I was planning to use in my demo reel. It may or may not happen; it depends if my bumper is demo-reel worthy. We shall see.
