First of all a short update on Sculpt January – it’s coming along nicely. On some days I struggle more, but I’m very happy that I’m pushing through. The stress of having to deliver daily turned out to be beneficial for me. I’m in Blender daily. On some days also watching new tutorials, learning new tricks. My sculpting went from zero, never did that to well…nobody is complaining. But I’m definitely becoming faster with it and also with setting up scenes and building characters for my shots. And this again influences my 2D work (at least I hope so). I will keep an eye on that.
This blog is still very young, so I have not yet quite figured out how exactly go about things, how often to update, how much materials to show. With very few exceptions I’m drawing daily and having small learning experiences…daily. Finding a weekly “best of” to present it clean to you seems hard (at least from today’s point of view), so let’s discover how we fare with (almost) daily drawing updates.
Today I kind of exploded and drew my way through a magazine with clothes in simple figure drawings. Random paper, a random pink ball-pen and tons of figures. I really think I learned a thing or two about leg posture and gaining mileage, but I’ll know for sure when I repeat the exercise and most important do something with it as in make some finished work. Here today’s haul:
