Whimsnicole- ahhhh! I like your username! Anyways, thank you very much! I hope to update more often and during the next semester. When school starts up, I tend to neglect this site, which is a shame. So I'm going to try and be better about updating. : )
Some things. Couldn't figure out what I wanted to draw today. I really wanted to paint, but all my paints are at school...so far...
Testing out Autodesk's Sketchbook Designer.
Just a really quick thing as I'm trying to figure out this new program.
Still trying to get the hang of Autodesk Sketchbook Designer.
So, was it just me or was the site down for a couple days. I needed my daily dose of awesome inspiration, and I was denied >.> Well anyways, here's some more playing around in Autodesk Sketchbook Designer. I might revisit the ground monster just because I love that concept of ground giants.
Lovely work! nothing more to say. Keep up the good work.
-Staal Sander- Thanks, man!
Some more doodles and sketches. Inspired by my little brother's drawing of a kid with wings attached to his butt. I thought it was a riot, so naturally I had to sketch it.
And here are some sketches for a personal project I will be working on next semester. All I'm gonna say is, it will be animated. Let's see how this goes...
Some more doodles.
2nd semester starts this upcoming monday. Pumped for my animation class (finally an animation class!)
a little Hermione because REASONS
Elias Leonard- Thanks, man!
-Axelga2112- Ah, yes! I love that artist! Haha, it tends to show that I adapt and incorporate styles of artists I swoon over. -.-
Plus, I just love the stylization of a LOT of french animators. They all have a uniquely different way of stylizing the human figure that I'm just so enamored with. But yes, love that artist! He's a big inspiration to me.
Hm, so my second semester started. Do you know what that means? I have my first animation class ever, so hopefully soon I can put up some pencil tests! Right now we're just doing some simple ball bounces.
But during my free time, I went ahead and messed around in ToonBoom:
Just some very short little scribbles to mess around with the software.
I'm also taking a 3D graphics class, which is basically, Start-to-learn-how-to-use-Maya class. ahhh....
Everytime I go to wash my hands, I discover new papercuts all over my hands. Other than that, animating is fantastic!
Some things from my drawing class.
Some hand sketches to work out a composition. School is super busy, but I love it.
Hahaha I was just drawing butt-wings last week!
There's lots of juicy stuff in here. School is really doing wonders for you- the recent progress is awesome. I definitely think you're suited for the animation world. Looking forward to updates
You're doing good with the studies. It takes good discipline to do such complex studies. The skull must ba a 50 hour + study?
-Rhubix- Thanks, man! Yeah, I'm just concentrating my best on absorbing everything my school has to offer. It's really great. Who knew learning was so refreshing? Thanks much for the comments! I hope to compile some pencil tests soon to post up here. Animation is quickly becoming my favorite class!
-Axelga2112- Yeah, that skull took some time. I worked on laying out the skull every now and then. The actual shading took practically two whole days. But it was very satisfying when I finished it.
You've got gorgeous characters and poses, love the looseness and motion in them. Your paintings have a lovely rythm in them. When I work with acrylics, the piece always ends up looking a little stiff due to the fast dry properties of the paints.
Going to keep an eye on your sketchbook.
Sleep.less- Thank you! Ah, your comment makes me want to get back into painting again, I haven't done that in a while.
Clockworklives- I really would love to get more into character designing. It's probably one of my favorite things to do. But there's a TON of other stuff that I love to do as well, so we'll see where it take me!
A few more sketches. Midterms was pretty rough this semester.
lol, I like the frog in the hoodie that I see through the paper :p
Axelga2112- Ha, thanks. Yeah, as you can see, my sketchbook has the thinnest paper possible, haha.
Sleep.less- Yes, I have a short floursack assignment for my animation class. It's a lotta fun! Thanks!
Some drawing assignments. Got to choose from a slew of Chuck Close paintings to reproduce in pencil. Of course, I had to go with Phillip Glass.

another sketchbook post. I am designing a character to model in my 3D graphics class. Super stoked. Pretty sure I'm going with bat boy in the later sketches.
Also, here was my midterm environment for my 3D graphics class (the leaves were prefabricated). Maya is just a massive program and I don't even know how to comprehend everything you can do in there. And textures are kinda flying over my head at the moment, but hopefully I'll start to get the hang of it when we come around to texturing our characters.
Playing around with charcoal.
hm. a quick animation break from the mound of homework I'm working on.
Kamikazel33t- Thank you!
dessinateurimpulsif- Thank you! Maybe at some point I can do a step by step of how I animate, if I have the time.
Also, guess what I'm modeling in my Maya class....!
good stuff- Just wanted to comment a bit on the flour sack.
It will make your life a lot easier if you consider his volume. This guy is the best for learning character animation because you don't have to worry about details- or hands! But because he's so simple it's easy to loose volumes and shape.
Below is a sketch I made for someone on the animation thread.
Rhubix- Hey, cool! Thanks for the help! Yeah, by flour sacks were lookin' a little pillow-y. Thanks for the quick demo drawing also, helps a lot.
Here is my first pass for a weight lift. Those last two steps at the end feel kind of nonexistant compared to the body, so that's one big thing I need to fix. I think I'm happiest with the acting at the beginning of the animation, before he actually picks up the box.
It's a lot of fun, though. And a lot of paper.
