Aladdin Studies For Class

These are just studies, but since I posted them on the class blog I figured I'd do it here too. I'm realizing more and more how much I suck at drawing guys... I drew Jasmine in like half the time or less than it took for me to draw Aladdin, with like no erasing either. :( Aladdin was a mess to draw.

So now I vowed all my studies will focus on men. Sigh. I love men but I hate drawing them. Time to change that!

Figure Invention for Animation!!!

So I started my Figure Invention for Animation class with my buddy Rad Sechrist, who is an AMAZING teacher as well as a ridiculous artist. REALLY great class. Most of all, I'm finally being forced to draw again and I can start posting new stuff! YAY! :)

Anyway, on the left is a doodle I did during a super long work meeting. Got called out for it by my boss :( Blah.

The girl in the first drawing is supposed to be the same one as the girl on the left...but she doesn't look like it. For the class, Rad is encouraging us to think up poses for our own characters we're working on, so this is the main character of a new project I want to start. Hopefully I can actually MOVE on it this time... all my other projects are really long and time consuming. This is the easiest of them all. You'll probably see a lot of her soon... and also her troupe of weirdos...which will be really fun to design. :)

That guy is Mitch. He's not from the same story as Piper, but I miss drawing him :) Then Macie is down below. Doodle from class. I love my Col-Erase pencils, and how clean the drawings look when I grayscale and mess with levels :D
