My mom got me this book from Barnes and Noble for Christmas while we were shopping for my family. I'm really glad I got my hands on this book-- it's going to help me a lot with camera angles, character designs, and other perspectives on animation.
Because I'm trying to improve upon my life drawing gestures, I started out small with a couple self studies of me looking awkwardly into the camera. I think my life drawing skills are better than earlier this year, but I need to work on details like how my shirt looks-- then again, they were gesture drawings and nothing really detailed.
And because I've been watching Gargoyles again, I've decided to mess around with Goliath's facial expressions because I was bored.
The next post will include the next few pages of the Gideon comic.
Well folks, it is official! As promised I decided to post the Gideon comic that I drew and inked for my Old Testament class this semester. :) It was based upon the original Gideon stories from the book of Judges. It's been a really challenging comic, (or graphic novella as I like to put it) but the payoff was great. :)
Enjoy the first few pages. The next four will come in the next few moments.
You folks online are probably wondering why I haven't been actively blogging for the past month. Or perhaps you're wondering why there hasn't been any active art updates in the past week. Or perhaps you're wondering since Mayan's 2012 is around the corner, I decided to celebrate early by pulling the plug.
The truth of the matter is that I've been extremely busy and haven't been able to post anything in a while.
But rest assured I kept myself pretty preoccupied for the past few weeks as I've been working like a horse on a HUUUMUNGOUS Old Testament comic for my OT class that I finished up recently. I must say that even though I don't consider it my best work yet, I consider it my better work than what I've done before.
So you're probably thinking-- why haven't you told us about it you quack? Well, it's because I wanted to keep it a surprise and show you all when the time was right. I decided that is what I'm going to do with a lot of future projects that I'm involved in. I won't say anything until I get my work done-- that way, you'll be more surprised.
However, I will keep updates on some projects like Alien Nation Church and perhaps some drawings for my original character, Amelia Enmity. But for long term projects like fan comics or commissions, or the like-- it's going to go private. Sorry folks, but I gotta do what I gotta do. As Andrew Stanton once commented (regarding the key ingredient of storytelling)-- you'll just have to work for your meals this time.
