:lol: sorry I have to laugh (not at your drawings), but on the second page of your studies, top right figure, the dancing woman... I also found this and used it as a study :D and for being creative, I like the stuff you are doing with the kids having fun and stuff

Weekend update! Hands, hands and more hands! Some of the studies look passable, some are pretty bad, but I've learnt a thing or two about anatomy doing them.

Strangely draining though...

Nice relaxing way to end the week, a few loose designs for random things.

Wow so much stuff O:! Loving the hand studies, the angled edges really give off a sense of style. And the watercolours are nice, it'd be lovely to see some more of those owo

What sketchbook is that? The pages look really nice o:

Thanks! It's the way Bridgman does his forms, and it feels like something I could make use of. I'm working in a Strathmore toned tan spiral-bound sketchbook - I'm already halfway through it though!

Nearing the end of Bridgman anatomy studies...feels like a milestone

Thanks guys, it was a pretty intense study week. Wrapped up with the anatomy studies and now I'm working on finding a gesture sketching style I like - probably something less focused on anatomy and more concentrated on the movement for animation purposes.

I think I'm falling into a bit of a creativity rut, so I did something more experimental with colouring today.

Like the head sketches. The one with elf ears on the top right reminds me of some of the sketeches I've seen for the villain in "the rise of the gaurdians".Ya know with the kind of pointy features, the hair and such.

Btw. Are you a swedish lad? since I think your name is Axel, and that I believe is a Swedish name. or at least nordic.
Just a bastard.

Haha, my name's Alex, but I like the scrambled up form of Axel - and also I really liked the character Axel from Kingdom Hearts 2 (I'm a huge fan of Kingdom Hearts). I'm actually of Chinese heritage, and live in Australia!

Gestures, can never do enough of them.

And some goblins?

Thanks Rachel! I changed my mechanical pencil lead to B from HB, and I'm finding it easier to get cleaner lines. I have no idea how your sketches turn out so clean though! :shock:

I love the gestures! How daring, doing them in pen

And lol the banana sketch! I hope I never run into that banana, I always break mine in half before I peel them D:

Thanks! Doing gestures with a brush pen actually feels more loose to me and I like how they look too. I don't know if the type of drawing tool influences things, but I found that I like brush pens for looseness the most, then regular pens and wooden pencils/lead holders, then mechanical pencils.

Took a look at the way Loomis recommends head construction. Did some studies, didn't learn as much as from Bridgman, however, some things in Loomis do reinforce the stuff from Bridgman. Loomis has wonderful tone and shading style though, it's tighter than Bridgman, but still not over-rendered. More things to strive for! :D

Back to Bridgman studies

Some poses from imagination - lines are bad and tentative here

Busy day, feeling really tired, so didn't get much done. I managed to do some gestures though.

Image

Tried to get through some character heads, but I was really fighting my way through. Some real generic and uninspired stuff here. Just one of those days...
