1.Do you use any of the twelve principles of animation? If so when and where would you apply it? 2. What are some drawing Exercises do you recommend to get a better understanding on how to animate? 3. how do you draw original character from imagination? Like what is your thought process?

Hey @Dennis Yeary! Great to see you continuing to share your work! I drew up some notes about your characters- mainly about correcting proportions and making sure the body starts to fill out its natural 3d form. One standout is that your drawings tend to make the hands too small. I referenced Destiny character concepts because I think their designs are cool and they have some solid base poses to work from. Another note to improve line quality is to practice drawing your lines with a single fluid motion rather than going over them again. Even if the line comes out not as accurate as you'd like, it helps build line confidence as you continue to draw. Then you might start to see how different lines FEEL and see how you can apply different line qualities to different parts of a drawing. But simply practicing line confidence could greatly improve a drawing! Again, thanks for sharing!

Thank you for your notes. I'll try to take it into consideration. Any other advice you can offer for someone hoping to create original characters for a comic book?

Hi! Your drawing is really great! I love your shadow placement. I would say push those values even more- it will add to the form and will make your drawing even more interesting. The next piece is more of a challenge to solve, but it is hard to tell where the weight of your subject is distributed. Is it on the stool where his knee is bent or is it on the ball of his foot?

Static poses, try looking for the "About to" moment. See the triangle between the crotch and feet? The more equilateral it is the more lifeless your drawing will look

Yeah I’m hoping to fix that with some practice. But not bad for not using a reference

Good job on the study. First thing I’d keep in mind if I was you is not relying too much on outlines, especially the right side of her face which should have the light side against the dark of her hair doing the work of defining the outline. Another thing is value, and I think your tools may have an effect but you’re not going dark (or light) enough with your values. When I squint my eyes from farther away, the entire piece just morphs into one big gray of the same value. The darkest thing is probably the outline of her face on the right. Make sure to look at the reference image with your eyes squinted and judge if the values of light and dark is accurate. Simplify those values with bright, medium and dark values and work from there for much more defined values. If your pencils/paper aren’t allowing you to go darker, I’d get a softer pencil lead and/or get a less rough textured paper. Proportions come with practice and you’re off to a good start, I’d watch the eyebrows since you’re relying on guide lines making her eyebrows attach to the top of her nose and it just doesn’t look right. I’d make sure my guide lines are super light in the early sketch phase when planning out her proportions to avoid visible guide lines like this.

Some days I have a hard time getting in the mode to draw. whether it allergy related or my arm is strained. How do you deal with this if you don't mind me asking
Dennis Yeary
I'm trying to figure out ways to improve my skills faster so i can become better and create original characters.
