anatomy study

The latest drop doing an anatomy study of the back muscles from a photo reference.

Actually, it was an excuse to try the new phone camera.  :)

flexion part1

A new video on using the armature and how to think about the flexion of the limbs.

TFL animation

This was a video I made in response to so many students in my anatomy classes not understanding the shape changing of the TFL muscle.  This shows in part how the muscle changes shape with varying degrees of movement in the leg.

So it has been a while.  Life has thrown a few distractions my way but I am working on bringing this blog up to speed, starting with my Keynote presentation from this year's Comicon 2015.  I have to build an interactive for the second half of the presentation on Photoshop brushes and how to use them as tools to build backgrounds.
Thank you for hanging in there and I hope you enjoy the content.

Quick sketch motivations

Here is a video on the different motivations for doing quick sketch.  Keep in mind that there are many many more than this, this is but a drop in the bucket for what we do when we quick sketch, but I do find that in most gesture circles there is no real motivation for why the artist is drawing, and that can eventually lead to all sorts of interesting problems, including the question that can easily come to mind, "why am I doing this?"
The tools and surfaces you work with will also change up and inspire different types of motivation too, but in this case I worked with charcoal and newsprint, the standard tool of choice in most schools.
Pass the video on if you find it useful, and thank you for watching.
