Summer Sketchin'

Summer's finally here!  The birds are chirping, the sun is shining....and my laptop is gone.  Again.  It seems like its becoming a theme of my laptop having something wrong with it right when the end of the year rolls around resulting in me waiting around yearning for IT to set it free and send it back to me.  Oh well, it just means my laptop will have superpowers by the end of the four years....right?

However, I've rediscovered drawing on PAPER and using public things like LIBRARIES to scan and upload things.  So here's what I've been up to:

(it's cool to see how much I have improved, especially looking at this drawing of feet I put in my portfolio for Ringling)

 Some super quick gestures of my grandma's dogs running around.
Attempted some self portraits.

I've been studying anatomy and trying to improve my drawing skills in general.  I have a long way to go!  Also, I've been watching one movie every night that i've been on break to catch up on my lack of movie knowledge.  Hopefully my movie knowledge won't be so shameful by the time summer break is over!

Until next time when I hopefully have a computer I can animate on,

Last post of the semester!

Literally!  The semester officially ended two days ago.  Whew.  It has been such a hectic and stressful semester, but it's over now and the summer welcomes a lot of sleeping, a lot of working, a lot of drawing, and a lot of learning!  I'm lookin' forward to it!

The image above was a work in progress for production design that I never quite finished...maybe i'll finish it up now that the summer is here.   I wanted to try something completely new, so this was a new experience for me.

We just finished our Sit Stand project.  To be completely honest, I am not the happiest with it and I feel there is a lot more I could do to sharpen the animation, however I am back home away from the labs so I will just take everything i've learned from it and apply it to the next animation!

I hope everyone has a great summer!  I've been catching up on movies and doing some storyboard studies.  :)
