New Anatomy Drawings

New Anatomy Drawings. I'm very happy with these. The lecture was all about muscles in the torso today. Unfortunately the successful ones I did of the male model don't look like anything unless you know what you're looking at so I didn't bother putting them up except for the first one on here. By the end of class I was getting hot and annoyed and the image I was doing wasn't turning out and he made us keep working on it. Finally I was fed up and started over my way for the last ten minutes of class. The guy wasn't fat but he's not skinny either so it's hard to find anything really visual to latch onto and say that's a cool looking line and I can replicate that. The girl however was a lot easier. I think it's because women are naturally curvy and to me that relates to cartooning very easily. So I surprised even myself with the last two (I think there was a piece of paper underneath the one that's why there's a line down her shoulder). Enjoy.

New Art

From class today. I am baffled by how amazing this can look with so little. My instructor came over and showed me how to start softening lines and I was dumbfounded.

I have to come up with a final project that demonstrates an understanding of anatomy...and that's pretty much where the stipulations end besides having to do with my major. I figured that I would borrow Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter Saga starting with "A Princess of Mars" for the assignment because most of the characters are nude throughout the novel anyway. Rather than doing a book cover scenario I figured if I'm going to be a comic artist I should do a comic page. So here's a compilation of sketches that I did for the mid point presentation to try and establish a look. Tars Tarkas still has a long way to go but it's just studies so whatever. Also yes it's true that Disney is doing a movie of the same name but I can't picture the guy they got as John Carter. He's too young looking...and pretty....bleh. As such my Carter (plus mutton chops) is loosely based on Michael Fassbender of "300" fame. He's got that particular kind of handsome ugly going for him and I could totally see him being from the south and having fought in a war the way John Carter was supposed to have. Enjoy.

New Anatomy Musings

Well for not wanting to go to school today I actually ended up with some stuff that I'm ecstatic with. I can't tell you how happy these make me. The heads aren't huge or too small and the legs (exception maybe on the guy) are excellent. Enjoy.
