    • More fun stuff! I'm still learning more about the design of the human body everyday I study it.

    • Thanks Mario! If it is inspiring other artists then it's serving its purpose :).

       

      Here's the finished motion study. These can really give your mind a work out. I have to admit that drawing a motion with drapery seemed a bit daunting at first, but I reminded myself that the same principles of movement for the body also apply to the drapery. You just need to analyse how it's reacting to the energy of the movement and simplify it into forceful shapes to keep it fluid during the whole motion.

    • Getting back into some motion studies. Usually on mondays it has taken a while for my mind to get into the flow of drawing again after the weekend. But today I could jump right into it fortunately.

    • Today as I was drawing these I realised how relaxing and enjoyable the act of drawing has become again for me. It reminded me of when I was a child and had no concern for applying any fundamentals or making pretty images. I drew for the pleasure of putting what I saw in my mind on paper. As I grew up and started to learn the fundamentals for creating good art, I often found the preoccupation of producing technically correct drawings getting in the way of me enjoying the process and being creative. But now I'm at that place again where every bit of knowledge that I have acquired is submitted to the purpose of communicating my ideas.

    • I just realised that I have written this article since last week but didn't post it anywhere. And it's not going to help anybody sitting on my harddrive so here it is. If there are any aspects of gesture drawing you guys are struggling with or would like me to explain my way of tackling it feel free to write that in this thread. Let's keep on practicing :).

    • I had a lot of fun doing these drawings. As you probably can tell I'm back at playing with shape design and proportions inspired by the references I'm using. The challenge I find in these is to not lose the vitality of the pose while playing with design. I still attempt to keep the action as intact as possible. I especially like how the girl with the sword at the bottom left came out, both the pose and the shapes. Let's see what subject I'll be in the mood of drawing tomorrow :).

      Ah, you've finally laid down in bed, the pillows are that right kind of cool and the blanket is just the right kind of snug. Then that last cup of water hits your system.  Now you have a nagging awful feeling that if you don't get out of bed, it's going to be a whole lot warmer. Or maybe you can convince yourself otherwise.

    • Hello Everyone!  

      My website just went live this month! Check it out and let me know what you think!

      The Broken Tangent

       

      I've been working in the video game industry for over 10 years. My hope is to make this website a labyrinth of animation work, both personal and professional, along with industry articles, etc.  

       

      Enjoy!
