Personal challenge for imaginary project:
- 3 characters ages 8-10
- 1 girl 2 boys
- Setting: Glow in the dark mini golfing
(clothing reflects that.)
- For full page - style comic
Because I was determined to make her bangs look proper, and because I was using her to settle on a style, I’ve been working on that girl on and off for a year now. I just sketched the ideas for the guys today.
I have a horrible habit of building on top of a single sketch instead of trying a variety of things using different sketches. That’s what happened with the boys. Still not convinced that I like their clothes, body shape, or that second one’s head structure.
Next mission: Find the power cord to my scanner.
I think most of the things I post on here are things I drew when I should be doing other things.
I’ll stop mentioning that.
Also, I don’t often draw facial hair for some reason, so savour this.
I haven’t posted a sketch in a while, so please have this scary girl who…
Never mind, she probably doesn’t make much more sense in context either.
No really, can I just assume they spent most of the Mmmexpress trip stopped at stations?
Edit: So it seems I’m wrong about this. Turns out the air inside a train moves at a the same speed as the train. Fluttershy’s wings would be displacing air above the floor, not the train tracks. I still think it would be trickier, but it certainly wouldn’t force her flat into a wall. Physics guys. Physics is wierd.
Classical painters learned their trade by going to a gallery, sitting in front of a master’s painting, and recreating it in as much detail as they could.
What does the modern character designer and animation enthusiast do to recreate that?
Pop in a movie (Fantasia 2000 for instance) pause it every so often, and DRAWING! For added fun, VHS tapes will only pause for a few minutes.
Apparantly this is the accumulation of about 3 hours. I didn’t even notice.
Updates will be sparse for a while.
Just some kids selling clothes…
(Fuller explanantion to come in about ten years)
So, I’ve been working on a 3D version of Kate from my animated band, Laceless.
This band was created about a year and a half ago, and was originally meant to be created in 3D. There is something very satisfying about being able to see it in the form I’ve been imaging for so long.
The first pic is a more finalized version of the characters (if you’ve seen them on deviantArt, you’ll be able to see quite a few differences)
The second is a progress shot of the 3D model (created in blender). It is a full model, but the clothes look pretty bad right now :P. It is also my first ever 3D model, because I lack intelligence in the art of pacing myself. Let’s see how far I get before I lose interest again.
