Week 3 & 4 assignment - Rad's Figure Invention Class

Here's some of the drawings I did for the class I'm taking; Figure Invention for Animation. Class is great! Drawings in the style of an existing animated film and some invented characters for my assignment about the torso. Cheese! Dirk.

Week 2 assignment Figure Invention Class

For the 2nd week assignment for Radhowtoschool Figure Invention class we had to pick one of your favourite animated characters. Study it via modelsheet and film stills, draw some invented poses with that character and clean up your favourite invented pose trying to stay on model as best as possible. I had only a few hours tonight to work on this assignment. Here's what I produced...

Sketches invented poses

Clean up 

Great exercise, definitely going to try to do this one more often. Very interesting to spend some time looking and studying a character so up close. Cheese! Dirk.
