So, yesterday, I was bored, I didn't feel like doing school work so I decided to do something else involving drawing...other schoolwork. Heh...sorta. I used a character design assignment as a basis of creating four characters. The clothing I tried to keep mundane and simple as that's what the assignment was, but I added some accessories which I wasn't supposed to - I think I'll just hand this in as an extra. These were done in Photoshop with nothing but the Polygonal lasso, paintbrush and paintbucket. I find this exercise really helps as it allows you to break down a character into its simple shapes and the limit to doing point to point forces you to take chances and try new things, I highly recommend it to anyone. More to come in this fashion soon...working on some designs as we speak...screw sleep.

So these are some sketches I did today - the paper bag sketches were from Costco while I was waiting for my bro to finish that Hot Dawg he was eatin. The paper bag was the closest thing nearby. So I started drawing people on it. The girls were just plain ol' doodles. Hope you like, and comments greatly appreciated.

This is a really quick drawing I did on my dads 50th birthday last weekend - had a bunch of people over and this kid who I'm somehow related to was sitting on the kitchen counter having a glass of water...I thought it was kind of funny so I'm putting it up.
The other drawing is some time I took out of doing work this week during the strike (which is now officially over - heading back to school on tuesday) to just play with drawing. What turned out was some brainpuke on paper. Again, I like maybe two pieces on there, but I always enjoy seeing people's process and the crappy drawings with the good - so I'm posting mine.
Comments are always greatly appreciated.

This is my Scare Tactics Leica Reel - I am not at all happy with the way it turned out, but it was something I think I needed to go through in order to learn as much as I did. I also figured out that the product of a project doesn't need to be good in order for one to learn from it, in fact, sometimes when you it turns out bad, you learn more - what not to do. Of course, that's a lot easier to say if the project isn't supposed to make any money and is there for an assignment's sake. So here it is, if for some reason it doesn't work out, refresh the page it should work.
Comments and crits are greatly appreciated, be they good or bad. I will be updating with my lipsync leica reel from this semester very soon. That one I am pretty happy with.
Yeah...so I've been busy. I feel bad for not posting anything especially since there's a bloody strike going on. Yet I've been busy animating, doodling, working on another leica reel and trying to get an exploded motherboard fixed. Yep. Those are my excuses. I'm going to put up two leica reels, as well as a bunch of animation as soon as I figure out a small file size outputting codec - enough to be able to upload stuff to video hosts. In the meantime, here are some doodles, many more to come.

So I tried doing the same process for girls as I did for the birds, and it didn't work out as well I think, but decent. I need to play around with the shapes a lot more. Pushing the expressions, I didn't vary the expressions too much (if at all) here because it was more about seeing what kind of faces/face types I could come up with. Needless to say, there will be much, much more of this coming. Comments and Crits encouraged, valued, and appreciated!
