It's about time I posted these somewhere! Here are some old sketches I did during the summer into fall. I tried to pick out the ones I liked the most. It was really hard for me to pick though especially since I only took my anatomy class this past fall and it helped me understand proportions better. I feel more confident exaggerating my figures while still understanding proportions. So...as you can see, I like drawing ladies haha. There is one male character though! It's a big improvement for me. I will try to draw more male characters! And also less anime! It's a big problem I have with my characters. I really want to stop drawing in that style and have a more original look. It's really hard for me to break the habit of drawing anime looking characters when it's just what I've been doing for the past ten years.
Not too much to say about the first three sketches. They are just some pretty sketch ideas I had during the summer. The fourth drawing, the girl with the apple, is actually a redesign of my main character from my first animation project. I would post my first animation but I am very embarrassed about it. I guess it's only natural to feel that way about a first project. The sixth drawing I did while looking at Alphonse Mucha's work. If you haven't checked him out! Go do it! I have a few more sketches I will post that are bit older but they are more concept designs for a comic idea I have.
Also beginning this week I will begin posting concept ideas and character designs for my friend Jessica (yanyu.deviantart.com, scribble-yu.blogspot.com) to turn into a one page comic! I will be doing six drawings throughout the week, one a day and then on the seventh day she will draw a comic. I'm really excited (and also a bit nervous) to start doing this! If I don't do six drawings, even if I do five, she won't do the comic! So it'll be up to me to do all six and it'll keep both of us on our toes and drawing.
