Kaspar No 11

Got a big deadline this Friday, so it's not easy to find the time to do these. The good news is I get more confident with each new drawing!

Kaspar No 9

Woah, that left foot came out waaaaay too big! But I quite like the face - wasn't sure how I was going to handle it at first.

Kaspar No 6

Looks like Kaspar put on a little weight in my layout!

Re-drew the toes from the last layout, trying to make 'em more varied in shape.

Damn, this one isn't nearly as close as I thought it was. It's odd how a drawing can look good on paper, and then turn out to be crap when you scan the bugger!

This one's going on the 'draw it again!' pile.

More Stuff

Drew a few corrections that John K pointed out

- redrew some fur so it doesn't cut into the construction
- adjustments to eyes and nose
- pushed left shoulder up a bit

My drawing is still toned down from the original, but I'll try to avoid that with the next layout.

EDIT: And here it is!

Popeye Toy Turnaround

EDIT: more of my crap!

Snap Crackle and Pop

The Art of Glamorgan Animation

One of my tutors just came into the studio with a copy of 'The Art of Glamorgan Animation' which is full of beautiful art by the many talented folks on the course - and much to my surprise has some of my drawings on the cover!

The people in this book are not just great artists, they are also my friends, and I feel very lucky that my work is to be shown side by side with theirs.

You can see a preview of the book here - Laura and Beth are in there too!

The Man with No Shirt

To those who came into the studio this morning and were amused to find me studying a photo of a half-naked man: IT WAS JOHN K'S IDEA!

Anyway, this was a nice change of pace from my usual stuff. The exercise is to draw this photo as closely as you can in order to figure out the forms, and then draw a cartoony one using what you learned from the first drawing. I've been doing more life drawing these days, and I think I'm starting to loosen up a bit!
