Sword in The Stone Hand Studies and A Big Nose!

In character design tonight we watched a couple of scenes from The Sword and The Stone. We drew hands from Merlin, the witch and a couple other characters as well. We talked about the similarity in the hands of the characters along with the differences.

 We had to come up with a character design based off of life sketches. That we did earlier in the week my guy below is the one I developed from the two sketches on the side. There were two pages that I worked from for it.

This next weekend we will be doing hands studies as homework. I enjoy drawing hands, so this homework will be quite fun. I will be updating tomorrow with the recent sketches from cafe sketch this week.

Bambi Head Gestures

Tonight we did gestures from Bambi of just his head, we studied the construction. From several different  angles and perspectives. The shapes are simple, but great it was hard to get a few of them right on the ears. I learned something though and I can work to improve even more.

Silhouette Warm Ups!

For character design this week we did some silhouette of the clowns from dumbo. Including two quick gestures of Dumb himself, it was interesting and I enjoyed being able to hear some of the facts surrounding this scene from Andy himself. I have a bit of homework coming up for this class for the weekend. I will be making another post soon for cafe sketch. Until then!

Cafe Sketch Week Two!

In the second week of cafe sketch we stayed in the class room and actually drew from a model. All together I think I had about 85 sketches by the end of class. It was fun though and I believe I have already improved a little bit from last week. The sketches below are some of the ones from class this week. 
I will be making another post today from my character design from the warm up sketches that we did this week. Including some of the homework including cubes and rectangles. Until later!

Breakdown With Shapes!

We had this homework from last week where we had to pick three different paintings. From the 15th century to the 19th and I picked Hiroshige, Pontormo an Raffaello Sanzio. The pictures below are in the order of the names that I listed. It didn't take long to do this and I enjoyed it quite a bit.
