Basic Drawing Week 5 Update and NEW ANIMATIONS AND SKETCHES

Hi there all!

Basic Drawing is going great! I got an A on the last project and its currently being displayed in the front office :) Oh yeah. haha 

We're working on a new project and its a collection real objects together. The objects that I chose are a collection of a Pepsi cup, some MnM's, and a big Plastic MnM guy in a chair-Looking something like THAT

I'll make sure to snap a picture for next week.

I animated a bit in Maya this weekend:

I think it turned out O.K.

I looked at my older CG stuff that I've gotten a lot better. I mean my first tests in maya were very.... Interesting.

So anyways I decided that eventually I'll gather up my older 3D stuff and make a progress reel for all my CG stuff. I'll start doing that stuff little by little, expect it coming soon.


I recently started drawing some people faces:
Expect more next week

Thanks for reading!

Basic Drawing Classes: Week 3 and 4 (Plus Fall Painting and "Stand Up Animation)

Hi there everyone!

A bit long since the last post, been busy with school.

Week 3:

Finished up Basic Still Life. Fully shaded and completed and got an A on the project! Here's the rough copy:


No final picture of the project yet, our teacher still has them, if he puts them on display, I'll make sure I get a picture.

Week 4:

We started the "Sketchbook Series #2" project. We are to draw 4 life objects that are similar to cubes, spheres, cones, and cylinders. I completed the drawing of the object itself for two shapes so far:

Keep in mind, I still have to shadow and touch up the drawings a bit

My other two objects will probably be a pumpkin and a pencil. I'm going with the Halloween/School-starting idea.

Fall Painting:

I tried digitally painting a bit in Sketchbook Pro.
I think it turned it ok, it was fun to try and "paint" a little bit!

New Animation:

I did a quick little test in Flash over the weekend:

If you've made it this far... Thanks for reading! Comments and feedback are always appreciated!

Basic Drawing Classes: Week 2


Week 2 of basic drawing is complete and so is the first assignment. We learned different shading methods and drawing different shapes. I touched up the shading for the drawings from last week because I felt that throughout the week I've gotten better but my scanner doesn't pick up some of the shading details so I decided to leave them out.

Next week our assigment is to draw a collection of shapes together in one picture stacked up and organized around each other. I'm looking forward to it!


Woo! Thanks for reading over the months!
