    Sketch book - feel free to comment

    Wasn't quiet sure where to put this so i'll whack it here. I've titled it sketch book because thats what it is a collection of sketches some of which have or will be developed and some that will only live on these pages.

    Erm the best way I can describe this page is er Stuff. I'm trying to just fill pages of stuff. Sometimes nice ideas creep out.

    I did a picture of The Creep from a cartoon called Galexy High. After I had finished him I decided as drawing practise I would try to position him in different ways. The 4 pictures on the left were drawn from screen shots to get a feel of his shape the rest are positions I thought up.

    Some more sketches looking at faces and how just changing pupils and eyes shapes can create different expressions

    Still chugging away at the sketch book. My line qulity has improved as has my speed. I'm going through a cartooning book by Christopher Hart so just straight copying at the moment though I am noticing how my way of drawing creeps in I don't always join my eyes (say thats an manga influence). I am glad that I am over the hang up that it has to be a perfect copy of whats in the book.

    I bounce around my study some nights its the repositioning of a character, some nights its working on my book and at the moment with my child having yet another cough (tough days with tired child and might have to loose my time if he wakes in the night) I'm doing straight copying as I only have to think where the lines are going not having to think of ideas.

    Not really posted much recently mainly due to the Hubby killing the pooter. He didn't clean it soon enough and over heated the mother board. I can't really tell him off as I killed a few cars by letting them over heat so were even

    Anyway I'm still sketching but due to dead pooter I have not been able to scan anything in.

    I'm a still working on my book I have come to a design of my character that I am really happy with so my next step is colour comps which I'll be doing in artrage.

    Another reason I have not scaned stuff in is I have been creating a blog for myself which can be found here http://chibijanine.blogspot.com/

    Something I have been doing is posting texture photos onto flickr, which are available for anybody to use if they wish

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/5319476...7624785628752/

    Some of them are the innards of the poor departed pooter.

    Still Drawing

    Ok still drawing every day though productivity has been a little down due to little boy having yet another cold, poor lad.

    Anyway I am mixing my self study between learning to draw cartoons, looking at anatomy ( unfortunatly doing this from a book, maybe when little lads a bit older I'll see if the museum runs any art groups), looking at other artist styles and I have decided I really like chibis so I'm looking into doing that drawing style by revamping my avatar and doing pictures for Illustration Friday.

    http://www.illustrationfriday.com/

    Been busy with my blog also

    http://chibijanine.blogspot.com/


    So here are some of the things I have been doing.
