Recent Costumed Gesture Drawing Sketches

I don't often get a chance to draw as often as I would like when I teach. 


- These sketches were done while talking about how it's VERY important to add a touch of an individual personal take on something that seems overtly generic now-a-days. -

•(This individual take is to focus on how you would like to apply these drawings and what specific task you preform at the studio, or...what you would like to do in the future.)•
 The above first sketch was the first I did talking about proportions and how to control a sense of "worldly realism."  This meaning, make the character feel like he, she, it belongs and exists in it's own personalized world that you could repeat the same set of principles in multiple drawings and designs.  This was an example of adding a touch of character to the face and stick hand to make it live in a more animation-friendly world with more realistic proportions.  This is something that is very prevalent in many more Feature animations, than a show for Television. From here I did the next three drawings talking about how it's VERY important to add a touch of an individual personal take on something that seems overtly generic now-a-days.
And these were pure joy to play with more of a sense of character.

I seriously love your blog.. Excellent colors & theme.
Did you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I'm looking to create my very own blog and want to
learn where you got this from or what the theme is named.
Kudos!
