So I mentioned in a previous post that Im not sure where my sketch book drawings are going at the moment. They seem so radically different to what I was drawing a year ago, and its really hard to tell if Im regressing.
Ive been thinking about it for the last couple of days, and I guess the more I work professionally the more my sketches move away my norm. I'm thinking that a lot of my drawings in recent years have been geared towards getting me work in the animation industry, so maybe as a become more confident in my professional work my drawings are more focused on things I like, rather than things I think employers might like... I dunno...if you are a potential employer I still care what you think!
And some actual sketchbook pages-
I was inspired by my good friend Benjamin Drake head down to the museum on Sunday and do a study or two. This was about 20 minutes i guess, its a life size bronze statue, but it was so poorly signed that all I can tell you is that it was made in 1935. I need to do more stuff like this!
on a side note, I would like to share with you my two favourite Animation Artist Blogs. I've had them on my side bar for a while, but they are a regular read and constant inspiration for me so I thought I'd give them a mention-
Tekkoman- Amazingly talented Animation Designer and probably a complete pervert.
Nick Sung- Story artist at Pixar. I love his drawings, but I am in awe of his perspective of the world.
Hope you are all well :)
