One Drawing A Week

I'm going to try and make the effort do make one finished drawing a week. Whether that be a pencil sketch, or Photoshop illustration. I mean, I'm in a drawing program, but the amount of time I get to work on my own drawings is abysmally small.

This way I can experiment with new styles and techniques and hopefully get some cool results.

So here's the first drawing, and what better way to start than with a pretty girl?

Character Timeline

Here is my latest assignment for Character Design class. We had to design an anthropomorphic character and show them in 5 different stages of their life: Infant, youth, teen, adult, and elderly. 

Overall, I'm a bit back and forth on this one. There are poses I like, and poses I don't. I really don't think it's one of my best assignments, so hopefully my next one will turn out better.

I went to a Zoo

I gotta say, I've never drawn animals at the Zoo before, and it's like, the most fun thing ever. Better than eating ice cream even.

Anyhow, these are the results of that day at the zoo. Drawing the Gibbons and the Orangutans were probably the highlight of the whole trip.

Life Drawings and Such

So here are some drawings done in my Life Drawing class. They range from caricatures - my favorite of which is currently in my teachers possession for grading, I'll upload it later - to exercises in movement, to standard life drawings.

Look at them if you'd like. Hell, look twice even. But don't you dare look a third time.

Some Excitingly Good Pencil Tests

No, they're not mine. I said they were excitingly good didn't I?

We were lucky enough to have John Musker come in to Sheridan a few days ago, and
I decided to record the lecture. I'm still trying to get the whole thing ready to upload, but in the meantime I've uploaded a particular segment of his 2 hour lecture.

Here are some pencil tests from Glen Keane (and at least one or two other animators I'm sure) for the "Part
of your world" sequence from The Little Mermaid, as well as early tests from Eric Goldberg for Aladdin.
