Mr Wilson i s a mean man, one he cheats and is never happy. His facial expression never changes in regards to a smile, he'll frown differently from time to time and maybe raise an eyebrow at you. this makes his a hard person to judge, which is why Phil always finds himself snooping around him.

Character: Fido

Here is my character Fido, a hound dog and my main characters side-kick. Fido is mid-puppy stage, so he is still young looking and small but developing an adults body. He is a chirpy, happy dog, but completely reliant on his best friend, Phil.

Animation: Walk cycle

Really enjoyed doing this, though i'll admit it was hard! But once I got an understanding of the movement, i found the arms were easy to add in. I know some adjustments need to be made but I'm still proud of the results :)!

Artist toolkit: Life Drawing week 5

This week we done a variety of light and dark drawings with black and white paper, I chose to use a white pencil and white chalk on my image.It took me a while to remind myself that I wasn't drawing the image, just the lighting, so I kept restarting on the same piece of paper, I think my most successful was the face and the foot. This task was 20 minutes,

These were 3 minute poses, we could chose what paper we wanted, I chose to do the light on black paper again but doing quicker strokes. I done this so that it would help me understand which line would benefit most drawn in the chalk to give the impression of what it was.

Finally I went onto white paper in which we had to draw the life model, Alan, coming up from the floor and moving towards us, I found this challenging to do in the time limit, 3 minutes per piece, as as Alan got closer, I could see more detail in each line and this was harder to incorporate in such a small amount of time. But i found this to be my most successful piece today.

Artist Toolkit: Life Drawing week 4

In this life drawing lesson, I decided to focus one the hands. These 3 minute drawings all started by drawing the hand first and going on from there. I enjoyed this method as I usually start from the shoulders and I found I was drawing more from habit/memory than observation, so by changing my starting point I felt I had to draw with more concentration.

The next images were done by rotation, the life model, Francise, moved slightly between each drawing so we could understand where each element goes when he moves from left to right or from a ball to standing up.

Lastly, we were given the choice to focus on anything for 20 minutes, I chose to do a time allowance of my own, I concentrated on the hands and gave myself different time slots to draw the hands. I started with 30 seconds:

Then 1 minute:

2 Minutes:

5 Minutes:

10 Minutes:

From this lesson I have learned not to use a 4H pencil... please excuse the poor quality pictures. I have also learned I enjoy drawing from the hands.
