Master & Student....

I haven’t done much character/ finished/ highly stylised pieces of late because I really want to concentrate on becoming a better draughtsman, and most of my work prior to now is 99.99999% comic/ character design and 0.001% life/ observational drawing (most of which is over the last 3 months). I’ve been told however that my blog is…er…ahem…a bit boring LOL. So I think I’ll start posting a healthy balance of life drawing and character work. This latest piece is for our animation task this week, character interaction. I find it helps my motivation to set the feeling of the animation with one drawing. The final animation won’t look like this, I only have a week, but it’s important to get to know the characters and believe in them. That’s what Glen Keane says anyway :)

Tried to give it a painterly feel in photoshop but colour, paints etc is not my strong point. After the course I definately want to start learning how to paint.

If I like the final animation, I might post it.

And Again....
