life drawing

Drawing from life has always been one of my favourites parts of improving my animation craft. I used to go alot in school and for the first few years after that. Unfortunately, it's something I don't do much of anymore (maybe 3-4 x a year), but something I need to push myself to do more.

For me the thing things I suffer from the most when I don't go life drawing is falling back on drawing from the same library of symbols and shapes and the speed and confidence in putting lines down on paper.

Here are some sketches from last year sometime.

Curious George comes out tomorrow. I went to check it out last weekend with the Yowza crew, and I can honestly say I enjoyed it. It's defenitely aimed for a young crowd but it turned out to be a very sweet little film, that captures alot of the charm and innocence of the books.
I thought there were some genuinely touching and funny moments.

Hearing Will Ferrell's voice for months drove me crazy, but looking at the big picture, he did a good job. Sames goes for Drew Barrymore, David Cross, Dick van Dyke and Eugene Levy (who I didn't even realise was in it).

It's also got some good tunes by Jack Johnson.

Go check out one of the last hand-drawn animated features coming out this side of the world for... a good few years at least.
