▀▄▀▄▌Take Two Sketchbook - Life Drawing 4/22
yup good old assignments from class, which unfortunately eats the majority of my soul. but no worries, ive got some other things on my room mates camera (i really need to get my own) and as soon as he gets back i can upload them.
until then (should be later this evening) heres some newer stuff from the sketchbook. more gestures and some foreshortening work.
working on a new avatar, also got some stuff i need to take some digi pics of from last quarter....
also got a quick animation from my Animation I class, it was a flour sack characterization exercise...youll see what i mean
Flour Sack Animation
silly little walk cycle
been busy with animation and 3d design (ill try to post some process pics of my current project, i have to combine two characters and then create a maquette of the concept)
anyway, just finished this today in animation I, a quick and dirty walk cycle test.
so im working on trying to borrow a friends digital camera, but until then here's the concept im working from for a 3D design project (due monday :()
the project is to take two characters, combine them and then build a maquette (fully painted) of the concept. My character selections were Mario and Link
this is just a quick Photoshop paintover i'm using for reference for my concept. The final maquette will be using the master sword, and have a scabbard/shield strapped to his back
Holy damn you couldn`t have picked a more badass combo than link and mario. Mario, being my childhood hero (because i spent so many hours playing the mario games) and link being from one of my favorite games of all time (the whole series, but ocarina of time in particular). Look forward to that one. Rock on man! My only suggestion for your photoshop concept is to maybe add the triforce to the back of (marilink? linkio? lario?)`s hand.
Nice anatomy studies. I like them..i think you are on the right way. Keep it up. You should try to improove the way you draw portraits (yeah, i know, me too :) )
good call with the triforce, ill prolly stamp that into the back of the maquettes hand. I also need to go in and differentiate between his white undershirt and chainmail tunic which is all under the green overalls/tunic

Great studies, too, keep up with them and you'll be happy with the progress you see. : ) This one is my favorite: http://studentpages.scad.edu/~fwalle...livemodel1.jpg I just love her expression, she looks so bored, lol.
Here's the final version that i turned in. A bit blurry but you get the idea :)
when i get it back ill take some better/bigger/different pov shots
a few sacrifices to the original design were made, his mustache had to go because the head was slightly too small. and i added the pointed elf ears...well..for fun :D
currently working on my animation final
heres the WIP
frames 1-13, shot on 2's with a few 4's thrown in, about 46 captured frames
at any rate, the idea is the guy tries to give the girl (seen briefly in frame 1) some flowers which she torches with a lighter, then he pulls out a flamethrower and torches her.
yeah...girls suck. I just wanna dance
very cute concept...
Nice execution, too... my only crit is the jerkiness of the action. it could be smoother, particularly his frown falling into a grimace and when he whips out the flame thrower and turns it onto her.
Also, you may want to make her arm move less robotically...
nitpicks, really, great job!
While I like the pacing of the animation...I don't enjoy the look...it doesn't feel very solid. However, I think that's because of my personal tastes in animation as opposed to anything you did wrong. Good work!

hehe, its not what i would do for a career, but 2d is definitely fun. cant wait till next couple weeks when the new quarter here at SCAD starts up when ill be getting into digital work. As it is im trying to get my hands on a digi camera to capture some of my larger works/3d design work
should be able to get a lot of personal sketching done over spring break too.
anyway thanks for the compliments :)
I am sorry to see that are no more updates since my last visit. I am still waiting for them :)
theyre coming, i finally bribed my sister into letting me borrow her digital camera for a quarter here at school (hopefully i can snag my own camera this summer, yay birthday)

wish me luck, im hopin i might snag an internship. kind of a longshot (im only a sophomore) but hey, never hurts to try, and better to say i wish i hadnt than i wish i had :D
still need to take some pics of the big pieces from forever ago, but here are a few concept vehicles that i've started doing, gotta start on environments and creatures as well.
forgot, the original concept page for the ships
each one is about the size of a quarter
Yes, this updates were worht to wait for :) I really love the one with the details on that piece of cloth. Really great dude!
great jobs! I recognized the Ryder piece right away...
