Hey everybody, here’s some drawings for a little project I’ve been working quite a bit on, a new Doctor who! I’m a big fan of the show and there’s just so much you could do with the amazing premise of the series. I’m working on some story ideas I’ll hopefully do some rough storyboards for eventually, and i definitely want to learn more about story structure and all that awesome stuff. for now I’ve mostly just been having fun trying to work on the characters. And of course a bit of the tardis, really want to work more on that since designing rooms and hard surface stuff in general is way out of my comfort zone, but there couldn’t be a funner thing to design! I’ve been trying to write down ideas for characters and story to go off of and build, so that’s progressing too. Since I am a fan of the show I need to try hard not to make it super similar to what’s already been made haha, need to come up with some new ideas!! Character development! I’ve only been learning a little so far, but learning about story structure and character building is extremely interesting and I’ve come to see how essential it is, even if I don’t become a writer lol. And bill Perkins visual storytelling class I’ve been slowly going though on NMA has been awesome as well for learning all sorts of mind blowing composition knowledge! Good stuff. For the Tardis room I was trying to make it feel really spacious and focus on having very organic feeling shapes, hopefully give it an alien feel. Definitely need to do some more ideation in it,since there’s a lot of room to do something different, see all the different directions you could go. Also I need to work on not making all the same size shapes and sections, make more clear distinct big medium small. And I was trying to apply something I heard Steven Zapata talk about on designing rooms: never just make a box and put stuff in it. Think about different levels, interesting shapes and structures. Just thought it’d be a good idea to show some ideas I’ve been working on, I’d of course appreciate any thoughts thanks!
Hey everyone, I’ve compiled a stack of fun drawings and studies and wanted to post them, I think ill keep updating this new thread. I’d appreciate any crits or thoughts, since there are likely many things I miss that an outside opinion would be helpful in addressing! I’m looking to build skills for storyboarding so my next focus is going to be on an NMA course: Bill Perkins visual storytelling, I’ve started it and it’s totally awesome, really want to get serious at staying with it. I’ve been trying to implement more shadows and tones since that’s something I need to work on and tend to avoid, so thoughts on that would be great! I’ve just been trying to keep it simple with the lasso fill tool with 2 or 3 values, focusing on the shapes. For the figure drawings my focus has mostly been on defining and simplifying anatomy, trying to implement more tone and shadows, and of course trying to get as solid of a gesture and construction as I can. I’d appreciate any thoughts thanks.
Here’s two of my most recent anatomy tracings from Scott Eaton’s class I thought I’d share. The one of the black statue has some problems I should take the time to fix, I believe I messed up the forearm, and I made the TFL and Sartorius too small for sure. it’s all starting to come together though! Any thoughts or crits on things I missed or messed up I would be thankful for!
Here’s some of the more fun drawings I’ve been up to, basically a bunch of sketchbooking. A good amount are from imagination or are lightly referenced, but there are a lot of studies too. I had lots of fun making them, so I guess that’s what counts! Of course any thoughts or crits would be very gladly taken!
Hey guys, I’ve built up a backlog of drawings and thought I needed to share them!! These are some of my recent figure drawings studies, right now I’m taking Scott Eaton’s anatomy class which has been great, but intense and lots of information no joke. I can already spot some anatomy mistakes in some of these drawings, but it’s certainly improving! Of course I would highly appreciate any and thoughts and crits. As you’ll see I’ve been experimenting with warming up with some automatic drawing or whatever you call it, making scribbles without thinking about anything but making the lines flow, that just happens naturally, I’m striving to think as little as possible. it’s been super cool, I think it’s excellent training for building the intuitive subconscious side, and it loosens me up.
