I've currently been almost 35 consecutive hours without sleep. (And not a whole lot less for the past month or so). Naturally my eyes are a little shot and my gait a little tottery, so after a fix of The Office I'm going to call it a day/night and give more comprehensive commentaries at a later date.
p.s. click on 'watch in high quality' when viewing or else it looks crummily pixilated. Good night, and good luck.
I by no means profess to be stellar at Life-Drawing. This is a problem because Life-Drawing (like math) is a pretty fundamental basic. I'm feeling kinda good though about the portfolio I'm handing in this time around; it's not mind-blowing, but I think I've improved a little since I started.
I'll be honest. I'm generally not a huge fan of the Royal Winter Fair thing. Scads of swarming children, runny noses, numb hands and standing all day don't tend to appeal to me, but this year it was kind of decent. I got some inspiration and sense of the farm animal enivironment (which might be particularly beneficial in relation to pig films) and had an enjoyable time tinkering with my watercolours. It's also kind of neat to watch the reactions of children to both animals and art, and hopefully be some sort of inspiration in the process.
On other notes, I was part of a tour at Cuppa Coffee (studio..(s?) in Toronto today and got an interesting glimpse into the stop-motion animation work environment.
Back from the days of second-year character design/story boarding. I spent the last few evenings intermittently cleaning up the individual poses and expressions but my scanner appears to be of inferior quality, so I'm not going to post those 'til I get access to a better scanner.
On second thought I may as well post the roughs in the meantime.
