Here is a rough animation I was going to post a while ago but forgot about. first I was focusing on rotating a head but then I made the “camera” rotate and pan out. It was fun, I’m going to have more time/drive to work on personal work soon as I’m starting a new job in a week.
I’ve been continuing with messing about in SAI and I’m finding it a lot of fun. I particularly like that you can rotate the canvas left and right really quickly by pressing “delete” and “end”, It feels a lot like real drawing on a piece of paper. Here is Sonic because I thought I’d keep the “video game characters running” theme. It’s still rough and sketchy but I’m not trying to make anything finished, just messing about.
This is a very rough promo sort of image for my cloud project. It’s really ridiculously rough but I want to document the process of this project. I’ll start proper work on it in the new year when I’ve got less going on.
This is awfully rough. This is a bit of early concept art for a personal project I’m working on right now. I’d love to spend more time making this into something better, and I will, the purpose of my drawing a day is to document my drawing process.
Today I bought two picture books, Gorilla by Anthony Brown and The Runaway Dinner by Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman. I’ve been thinking about picture books alot recently and how I’d like to start collecting a few, like most people around my age (24) I grew up with the likes of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. Whilst reading these two books that I’d purchased, I had the realisation that there was no good reason for me not to Illustrate my own picture book, so I started drawing. I made up a story about a dog who follows his owner to school and wont go back home so he ends up going to school with the boy, very original I thought, then I googled it. I counted 5 different picture books about a dog following its owner to school before I got disheartened. The comic above is a part of the super rough version of the story I was formulating, I am still very much into the idea of making a picture book and will continue developing a few other stories I’ve been working on and hopefully send them to a publisher. That’s the plan anyway, that’s enough experience for me to add “childrens Illustrator” to my CV, I’ve also added “make a picture book” to the list of things i’m working on.
