Still catching up

Here's a few additional demo drawings from class lectures recently. I was attempting to show my students ways of developing concepts and then prepping those ideas towards production. Primarily in the form of rotation models of the characters. The idea was to start with a cute little character and then transition it to something other than what you began with. In this case into a Frankenstein monster king of direction.

Catching up some more...

Here's some additional images I came up with in class while conducting sessions at my school. These are from both levels of Character Design. The beginning class is Character Design 1. The advanced class is Character Design 2. If the designs are complex or feature proportions consistent with the human body it's CD2. The rest are from aspects of CD1. 

The new place is very accommodating to increased creative productivity which allows me to engage more in demonstrations than I normally would. I work with students on their own assignments first. When my students are doing well that frees me up for demos. The better my students do the freer I am in class to create examples.

I'm going to paint this....

It was a lousy sketch a few months ago. Drawn with pencil on a piece of punched illustration board used for painting backgrounds for animated films. Now that I'm clearing up the mess after the move to a new location I decided to rework it and I think it's okay. My intention is to color this using acrylics as a class demonstration. We'll see how it turns out.

Catching Up

Hello there ladies and gents! I hope you're doing great. As you may know from previous posts I've had the daunting task of relocating my school earlier this year. I was finally able to complete the job in late February and the ensuing effort has been to organize. I've gotten things to the point where a semblance or normalcy is forming and as such the opportunity to get back to something of a creatively productive routine.

As such I'm happy to be posting again and would like to start with some odds and ends. My schedule has been busy but I am fining opportunities to draw during class. Almost everything I've been doing since the time of the move has been class demos. These sketches originate from sessions where I'm explaining things to my students and having fun in the process.

I'll be around with more soon. Thank you everyone for stopping by and for continuing to follow my humble little blog!
