I was talking with some pals last night, and Mike told me that he got better at drawing by staring at this image until he “understood it.” (from Eric Goldberg’s “Character Animation Crash Course”)
The first image is drawing anatomical/construction first, gesture second. The second image is drawing the gesture/expression first, then the anatomy second. The first image produces stiff character acting, the second image produces explosive character acting.
I’m gonna stare at it too until I understand it. Come on, stare with me. 

i’ve been struggling with how to explain what i mean by applying the concepts of ‘tweening’ vs ‘drawing straight ahead’ to non-animated work and this is probably the best example i’ve found so far

WHEN IT CLICKS YOU’RE LIKE “oooooo……..OOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I’ve dropped off a few new prints to Papergirl Belfast. They’ll be in the gallery show for a week; the launch night is this Friday. All prints are then passed out to pedestrians across Belfast from the papergirl cyclists, so look out for them!

A few quick sketches I did today of hermit crabs. I’ve been itching to sketch something but haven’t had much time or energy because I got a new job.

I used to have two hermit crabs, Kermit and Violet, when I was about 16, but they died. I really hope I can have a few in the future.

Done in colored pencil and graphite. Maybe I’ll do a proper scientific illustration and a labeled anatomical figure later…

A few sketches I did today. A Maya Angelou drawing of some sort will be up by the weekend!
