These pretty much go up from 30 seconds to 10 minute poses. Some of these I like more than others, but it's always good to see what parts of the body I still need to improve on (everything, haha!).
This is what happens when you get one of those evil metal pieces in your Conte sticks. They're really hard to get out, and they will probably ruin a page of newsprint or three in the process... Blah!
These are all from the Royal Ontario Museum! The first page is gestures, ranging from 10 to 15 minutes in length. The middle one is a study which took me... three hours? And then the addition of three muscles on top is what the third image is. Neat assignment!
I drew a horse! I had a limited amount of time for this one, since I had to work between classes which meant I had to leave my elective class early. The teacher was okay with that though, so all went well :) Sorry for the bad cellphone-camera quality on this one: it's the best I could do before submitting the drawing.
And now for layout! Basically, throughout the semester so far, our (awesome) layout teacher has assigned us to draw chairs and cars. Eventually we also had to add characters to these chairs and cars. Here's a compilation of all the drawings I did. Some are better than others, so there's always room for improvement!
And finally, our first "official" layout assignment of the year, for which had to take three of four given thumbnails, research them and draw them at a larger, more refined scale. After cleaning the drawings up, we rendered them with markers. I haven't touched markers for several years (and even before that, I only really used them once or twice), but it was actually really nice to do! Anyway, I hope you like 'm!
And that's all for today! I finished another character design assignment as well, but I haven't had the chance to scan those yet, and they're currently with the teacher. I have copies of the rough versions which I can use for referencing my animation though, so all should be good there. Have a good day, all of you!
