So sorry I have been away from you all this last while. I just didn't draw much, so I had nothing to post. I know I am a visual person myself so when I go to blogs, I usually look for pictures or something to capture my interest or I get bored. Unless they are a fantastic writer like Melissa. Also she will kill me if I don't read it... Only kidding!
Anyways, I started the Fundamentals of Animation summer program today. I loved it. We talked quite a bit for the first while, but in the second half we had to create a character to animate later on. just a couple minutes of film I believe. I drew quite a few characters at first just playing around with what I wanted. I needed it to be simple, yet interesting. Also, it must be able to be funny. Everyone likes humor.
So after all that I decided on a little raccoon. Meet Skip-
In order to be able to draw him in multiple views and angles, I need to practice. Tomorrow I will be watching Pocahontas to watch the drawings of Meeko. I'm very excited.
Some people have crazy detailed characters, I don't know how they will be able to animate them. Good Luck!!
The other day before going to the movies I headed to the mall and sat in the food court so as to draw people. As always I had tons of fun, and enjoyed the results. When I draw people I feel like I get to know them, or at least make up a story about them in my head. When I look back on the drawing later, I remember everything about the moment I drew it.
Here are the drawings -
First life drawing class tomorrow..
