Under The Sea - Part 1

This year for CTN I thought it'd be fun to do a little book of mermaids drawn traditionally and colored with copic markers.  I was planning on doing a mermaid everyday, but then I started doing inktober stuff for October so between all of that and freelance, my mermaids have slowed down a bit, but I still plan on putting something together.  Here are a few of the mermaids that I've done so far.  

I also post updates regularly on instagram if you'd like to see what I'm up to more frequently.  :)

CGMA - Character Design - Weeks 7&8

I realized I never got around to posting my final weeks at CGMA.  I was planning on fixing up the mistakes, but that will have to wait for a little bit.  Week 7 I missed because I was out of town.  The assignment for that week was weaker, in my opinion, than the others.  It had more to do with setting up a shot and less with character design.  I didn't spend as much time on it and went straight on to week 8.  I wish we had more assignments like week 8, but when everyone in the class is at a different level it's hard to say.  What I'm hoping for is that Brett Bean gets his own course since he's one of my favorite character designers.  I've learned a lot from him and this was only a beginners course.  Here is my work from weeks 7 and 8:

CGMA - Character Design - Week 6

Last week we got to draw dragons and their rider!  I wanted to redesign a fan art piece that I had done for How To Train Your Dragon.  The image on the bottom left is the old one and the new one is one the right.  I got some awesome feedback from Brett on it and can't wait to make the appropriate changes.

CGMA - Character Design - Week 5

I got some great feedback from the amazing Brett Bean this week.  If I find some time I'll be improving upon the cowboy and his goat and working more with the Barbarians.  I didn't get as many cafe sketches in this week as I would have liked.  I'm trying to focus on less is more.  I have a tendency to put in too much detail and detail that may not even be needed.  I need to think more about the decisions I am making when it comes to design.

CGMA - Character Design - Week 4

Week 4 ended up being rushed.  I should have spent more time thinking about my poses and I sort of did them quickly because they were due soon.  This is what I ended up getting done.  We had to do a few drawings of different emotions that were poses and some that showed facial expression.  Then of course there are a few studies from Starbucks at the end.

I'll post this week (week 5) most likely on Wednesday or Thursday.
