As you know by now I took a course on Maya essentials. For said course I had to do a 10 to 20 second animation, based off a toy that I choose. I picked the "Gazillion Bubbles Bug" and proceeded to hate every minute of staring at him and my screen to get even half of his details right, while learning the program. I screamed, I cried, I bitched at the screen, program, on FB and to my husband. BUt I got not only a decent resemblance of the toy, but also a 15 second animation out of it. Just for point of reference on how... hopeful... naive... enthusiastic... and over-acheiving I was at the beginning of class, I am also going to show you the original story boards for what I had conceved as the animation I was going to do.
I guess this pic has something to do with the over 100 degree weather we had today, but also cause I felt a little drained right now as well. I feel like it looks a little like a Picasso, but I can't remember which... The Guitar player perhaps? Let me know. Either way, another quick sketch on the computer. I think I may get to liking this drawing on the computer thing after all. I can "undo" "markers" which is great. Maybe I'll finally splurge and get Corel Painter, but we'll see. Hope you like.
This is for my project in Maya. Basically it means I got to draw in Sketchbook Pro a couple of cute little trees and color them in Photoshop (cause my Painter "demo" expired). After cursing Photoshop for an hour I remembered everything I needed to do and I like the way it ended up. Hope you do too!
That is what I called these when I scanned them in. I was working with 2 Copic markers that are dying and another japanese brush marker that was a mustardy yellow brown. I look at these and I know I still have a lot to learn. I still cheat (which I know all artists do a bit, well actually all humans do it, without it we wouldn't be able to recognize different styles of tables that we encounter, but that is another story) but I shouldn't cheat when I have the figure in front of me. I should just draw what I see. That is the hardest thing to do. Anyway I hope you enjoy these. Finally started playing with the cintiq at home, so maybe I'll have something half-way descent to show you soon. Sorry for the long absence.
