Scene Kid

My friend and I were laughing at scene kids yesterday and thought it would be fun to draw our characters as such. Here's my contribution to the madness. All of my colors are washed out for some reason though and I dont know why. =(

Off topic, I saw Scott Pilgrim last night and it was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go see it!

Life Drawings

Hey guys,
I went to my first model session at Rhythm&Hues on Wed. I was pleasantly surprised to see Karl Gnass as the instructor. I knew he taught at Disney and Dreamworks but he apparently teaches at R&H as well. That's quite awesome as he's a great teacher and an amazing draftsman. Here are some of my drawings from this week's session.

New Job!

Hey guys,
I have awesome news! I've accepted an offer from Rhythm & Hues and will be starting at my new job on Monday! I'm really excited about experiencing another studio and meeting more animators. Plus, this is my first job as a full on character animator! Rhythm & Hues also allows the artists to bring their dogs to work every day, how cool is that?! I wish I could bring my cat in too but I don't think that would end well lol.

Drawings From Today

After going out to lunch and watching Despicable Me with my friends/fellow fixers I returned home to do some life drawing. I started out doing full figure work and decided that I would benefit from doing some chest studies after making the horrible drawing #3. I broke out Atlas of Human Anatomy For The Artist and The Human Figure to do some research before starting. I've noticed that I was having trouble finding where the sternum ends and the bottom sides of the ribcage on some of the models. Reading a section from those two books was really helpful. With practice, I should be able to draw an acceptable torso now that I have a better idea of where my landmarks are.

After my pages of life drawing, I figured it would be fun to do another LaQuandae drawing as well. These are posted in the order they were drawn.

Wow, I'm clearly out of practice with life drawing. I now know what I'll be doing after I wake up.

Dae Dae Development

After another fun round of LaQuandae and Cookie OC with my friend Bri, I decided to do some more Dae Dae drawings. I need to work on his full body proportions, facial expressions and making a simplified/cartoony version of him for OC-ing. Lol, despite that none of these fall into any of those categories.

Hey guys,
Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been REALLY busy in crunch time for the past few months. I'm free now and am looking for work. Now I have time to draw again and update my blog more regularly. In the meantime, enjoy these crew pictures that were taking while working at Disney. =D
