3rd year LD

So back at it again, in third year now. Have been going to extra life almost every night which is great! This is the first of hopefully many LD posts. Lately I've been trying to move away from the Hampton esk looking drawings, trying to add more gesture and line quality, but struggling hard. Starting to study Loomis hopefully he can help me :|  but lots more LD to come!
If your reading this you can also expect some 3D character models currently in progress and some group film stuff! (Also 3D) AND I also want to update my blog header with a more Swordinary motif.
Anyways if you like, follow me because right now I"m preaching to 5 followers :(.
A couple pen drawings done in class on newsprint

A little compilation of costume, X-life, and cafe sketching in pen

Summer LD

So I've only been to 2 life drawing sessions this summer, these are the few drawings I kinda liked. Hard to keep your skills up with 3 hours of ld a month :(

Pen n Ink fun

Some recent studies done, all from different eras and parts of the world. Inspired by Sergio Toppi an amazing french illustrator with a unique cross-hatching style. Done in india ink with a calligraphy pen.

Been designing a lot of character's lately for character design, layout, storyboarding, and for fun. 

Life Drawing Update

So heres my latest life drawings. Haven't had much time to go to extra life due to a pile up of overdue assignments. Working on making short poses clearer. Also some of my first drapery drawings, more to come.
