216: posemaniacs 30 sec Flash Warmups

Animating in Flash, so might as well do some posemaniacs warm ups. Pushing hard down on the pen this time. Photoshop will always be my favorite for drawing, but I won't rest until I got some pleasing results in Flash as well. You can see that page 2 is already better, so there is a need to warm up, even for warm up gestures :P

215: Tennis and Muppets

Didn't flow as nicely as last time, but still fun :)

Here are my faves:

And here's the full lot:

After wards I tried to create a gesture based on my gestures with existing characters...not really great but seems to be a great exercise!

213: Sol Art & The Tale of the missing watercolors

I made a last minute decision to go life drawing on Thursday, because I specifically wanted to try out some watercolors on my pencildrawings. Aaaaand of course...I forgot to bring my watercolors.....arrrghhh. Ah well, there's always next week!

To start off I compiled some of the 1 minute poses on one page (and sneakily added some tone to them in PS). That was my intention with the watercolor !! Arrghhh once more!

And here is the full lot of 1 minute drawings:

Underneath some longer untimed poses probably around 5-10 minutes:

212: gestures and character

Today it seems I can't hit a note. Every drawing comes out crap :/

 Here are some more flash gestures, and added tone afterwards in photoshop to make the drawings look less bad :)

Also tried another exercise (in Photoshop) where I took one of the gestures and drew different "characters" based on the gesture. Fun stuff, gotta revisit this when I have a flow going.

207: Shape Exercice

This is really just drawing from your imagination, but it's a fun thing to do! There's a sheet with random shapes and you just fill 'em up with heads! Easy :)

205: Flash Warm Up Gestures

Once again trying to learn how to draw in flash. What better way than to do my warm ups gestures in Flash? These drawings are SO UGLY! Haha, I dunno. I haven't figured out how to do this yet...I clearly need to approach this differently!

To make the drawings less ugly I slapped on some tone in Photoshop :)

204: Late Night Gestures

Sometimes after a day of drawing, I just really feel like doing some gestures. So here are a few. Now it's time for an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, just discovered the show and I love it.

These are the "first" gestures, I then draw the stuff above on top in a different layer. I mainly thought about shapes when I drew the ones below.
