Working on improving figure drawing and basic construction (still need more work on that). Onto week 3! Animals!

I was home sick today, so I designed this cowboy fellow. Now I just want to animate him! But calling it an early night. #character_design #art #animation #artist #drawing #doodle##cowboy #concept_art

Last summer I took Character Design w/Stephen Silver (and art reviews by Daniel Arriaga) on Schoolsim. It was really informative and I highly suggest it if you can. The lectures included a PDF of a “20 week Drawing Program” that Mr.Silver had written up. I printed it out, and put it into a drawer (whoops!). I recently dug it out, and thought it was just what I needed to incourage myself to draw more and improve!

The first two weeks it says to focus on Construction of Figures. I decided to focus last week (week 1/20) on studying the detailed figure studies of Reginald Marsh (Anatomy for Artists) as well as the cartooned figures of Tom Bancroft (Creative Characters with Personality). I have a lot art books that have been sitting on my shelf (please tell me I’m not the only one???), so over the next 20 weeks I hope to really read/study these books as part of the challenge. 

Another part of the program is Figure Drawing. I’ll be honest, last week I used by go to artists.pixelovely.com/ which is a pretty awesome tool. I am planning on ACTUALLY going to live figure drawing ASAP. 

ANYWAYS, my point in sharing this is, I was curious if anyone else would like to join in? Encourage each other with this project/other projects over the next 20 weeks?

A few finishing touches and frame. #Batdog is ready to ship :) #batman #painting #art #artwork #bulldog #french_bulldog
