Character Posing

So this right here is my final copy of my Character Design assignment. The task was to design a character, and then draw him/her/it in eight different poses that illustrate his/her/it's character.

I'm pretty pleased, I think I'm definitely improving at least, which is something to be proud of in itself. The drawings on the top left of the page leave me rather disappointed, I'd like to think I could do better.
With that said, I'm fairly pleased with several of the other poses, in particular the one on the top right, bottom right, center, and center left. So it seems I'm 50% happy with this assignment.

Cool beans.

I'm still struggling with balancing appeal and structure, which is constantly in my head. I'm also having a lot of trouble with pushing facial expressions to extremes, I find it causes a breaking in structure as well as appeal. I.e. having someone letting out a scream of pure terror. Something like that is a very intense challenge for me.

Even more beans of the cool variety.

I shall update again with interesting things soon, dear reader.
Until we meet again.

Hands and Feet Portfolio

Well here is my portfolio for Life Drawing class. The assignment was to draw 8 hands and 8 feet, as well as 6 short hand drawings a piece. Finally we're also marked on our title page.

I'm fairly pleased, although I think I should have gone for more dynamic posing. My drawings are rather bland.

Marine Animal

Penguin Swim Cycle from Omar Elhindi on Vimeo.

So here is my marine animal cycle. It's not due for three more weeks, however I have many pressing things due in two days. You can tell I managed my time accordingly.

Back on topic.

I'm fairly pleased with this to be honest, although theirs a few spacing issues that were the result of poor planning. Otherwise I think it has a nice bit of character, which is something I've noticed many Sheridan students don't think about until second or even third year. Which is quite unfortunate considering the importance of it.

Oh yeah, his name is Pedro. Pedro the penguin. Pedro the penguin who actually looks a lot like a hummingbird...

Cool things to come

That title is fairly misleading. I only really have like one cool upcoming thing to show, and that's my latest CG test I'm working on ontop of what I have to do for Sheridan.

Until then, here's a book in a room with a very odd wind current.
