Animation Practice


Every Thursday I try and do a bit of animation practice. Bit being the operative word. I get maybe 2 or 3 hours to work on it, and I've been using Flash which is like trying to cycle up a mountainside.

Life-drawing 17th October 2011

Well, this was a better session, or at least not as bad as the table-tipping fury I experienced last week. But proportion... why you so whack? I think I might also relegate the markers t the 5 and 10 minute poses. Anything longer than that and I can't work with them without the ink pooling on the paper.

Life-drawing 10th October 2011

The only semi-decent image I came up with from what felt like a truly disasterous life-drawing session (that had nothing to do with the model, I hasten to add!).

Hats Hats Hats

Yes, I need heaps more practice with them so they don't look like tissue boxes perched on top of people's heads. Most of these are 3 minute poses. Done at a session at BigKidz Entertainment with Kelly, Bob, Dave, Marta, Megan, Adam P and Adam D.

Arm Muscle Studies 01

"Mimic until you understand", isn't that what they say? I've never clearly understood how the muscles in the arms are arranged, so I'm working on some technical drawings to become better acquainted with them. I try to do these on the tram on the way to work... painfully slow and dependent on whether or not I can get a seat.
