Sketchbook Stories, 4

Faces and Force.  Those are my main focuses as of right now.  After all the faces I've drawn, I am nearly forgetting on how to draw realistically, but I don't want style to take over.  I was inspired to start practicing hair because of this post by Darik, a soon2be co-animation student.  I seriously can't wait for life drawing to kick off again.  I'm almost done reading Michael D. Matessi's Force, and I simply can't wait to do some practice.  Posemaniacs is the place to be!

Of course, I'm still practicing hands as well, but I was unable to keep that one sketchbook dedicated just for that.  I also seem to have some odd proportion issues lately, so I'm still working on getting those out of the way too.

Enough text.  Here is three pages:

Omegle Drawing

Recently I've been drawing people on Omegle just to get a bit of practice.  Trust me, I had to skip more than half of the people on there because of... well, whatever.  Plus, from the leftover people, there was only a handful that were fascinated by me drawing them (I let them watch).  It was harder to do than I thought, but I can already see some improvement happening here and there.  Here are some of the better-looking drawings.

 I liked where this one was going, and then the guy disconnected me :|

Walk Cycle

I started working on this roughly two months ago, but I finally finished it last night.  It didn't even take that long... oh well.  I'm happy with the way it turned out, however I wasn't expecting it to be this "laggy".  Since I wasn't motivated to continue, I didn't make the character take four steps, as previously planned.  I'm actually looking forward to doing more rough, life-y animation, so that's probably where I'll put my focus next.

Sketchbook Stories, 3

Here's another random few pages from my sketchbook that I'm (partly) happy with.  I hope you like 'm too!  I'm finally pushing myself to draw more full-body poses, although you'll still find lots and lots of faces in here.  Oh well, I'm enjoying myself.  One more month until September!

And here's the page I'm currently most happy with from my hands-sketchbook.
