This is the beginning of a journey into the world of character animation.

 

A little while back I applied for a place in the renowned online animation school, Animation Mentor. I was over the moon to have been accepted in this 18 month program and have just started the Character Animation program. In short this program will prepare me to become a character animator for feature film (like Toy Story, King Kong, Avatar etc).

 

This week marks the second week of class 1 (12 weeks), the first week was mostly orientation and getting used to the online format and this week (week 2) we have our first assignment: Go out and sketch people doing various daily activities and try to capture the essence and mood of the pose/action. Then, select a pose from your sketches and re-create it using a supplied character rig (3D character model).

 

So here is part one… the sketches, stay tuned for the correlating character pose which i’ll upload in the next few days :)

 

I will be posting my progress through the course every week so keep checking back to see where im up to and PLEASE leave feedback below, even if you don’t think you know what your talking about, let me know whats working and whats not for you – it’s extremely helpful!

figure23…and finally, probably one of the best (or at least most ‘finished’) drawings of the term. I think this was about 2.5 hrs. I’m happy with the result but I must say my heart lies with the quick expressive and dynamic poses seen above.

Graphite on bond.

Happy new Year!!

This (and the few posts that follow) are a selection of sketches I did while at the Julian Ashtons Art School, where I have picked up some life drawing classes to draw something real on something real for a change. Its been a while but I still love it. I plan to continue in the new year.

All drawn with either charcoal or graphite on bond. Poses range from 1 minute up to a couple of hours.

1 hour pose, graphite on bond paper

I started life drawing classes again to keep me drawing with natural media – everything i do these days is digital so its nice to be able to draw on paper for a change.
