Animation Inspiration 109

Apparently, the painkillers I have for my hip make me super singsongy….because for the last half hour I’ve been narrating myself through singing. It’s super weird, but also doesn’t feel out of the ordinary because of pills.

I drew a shadow study since I’ve been trying to draw people all day and it’s not been working out. I figured I need some shadow practice and a few reference photos. This was helpful in jogging my memory from drawing class freshman year. I haven’t really done many people drawings since then so I’m not surprised I’m having trouble. It happens when you don’t practice. Just do a billion drawings every day for practice.

In honor of needing to get to bed because I’m about to get sleepy here’s some inspiration from my favorite youtube channel, Kurzgesagt.

Digital Plein Air Sketches

I got distracted by the internet today. I did make this as a result of the distraction, although, t’was not the original reason I got on the computer. Sometimes I go on the Adobe Twitch to motivate me to work. Instead of animating, I saw that Syd was doing digital plein painting, so I joined in at the last hour or so to create these two scenes. Was a fun idea and quick project. I’ve never thought of going through Google Earth and finding awesome places to draw from. So, new pass time activity.

Update on other projects, still really behind on the camping video. I also need to “eat the frog” and finish animating for bootcamp. I have a new desk setup with a large monitor which helps with animation and video editing. So much nicer to animate with a lot of screen real estate. I don’t know why I didn’t move my monitor up to my room sooner. It’s so nice! The camping video is taking awhile due to lack of a tripod. Takes longer to find good footage. I’m gonna stop complaining about my lack of progress and go work on something.

Hope you all made something today! ‘Cause at least you’re making something, which is better than nothing.

Bye!

Digital Doodles 2

I had a reason for going into photoshop…but I forgot what I was making halfway through and ended up just arting. Pulled out the cintiq to letter in photoshop, got distracted, and this happened. Now too tired to return to the original purpose of working on my selfi animation. So I present you with more digital doodles. I don’t know what to do with these doodles. Anyone want a new desktop or phone background? You’re welcome to use them, just let me know if you do. If anyone has any ideas of what to do with these let me know.
