My apologies for not posting anything in a while, I've been busier than ever over the last week as I have been doing some freelance 3D animation as well as my normal job, meaning I have been working 14 hour days. I am happy about getting the animation work, I just wish it was more like character animation. I should really rename my blog to Andy's Character Animation or something as it's that that I'm most interested in.
Today I finished the job so I have had a little time to do some drawings. I heard somewhere that it's a good exercise to try drawing with white pencil on black paper for a change. I believe it is supposed to teach you to be more conservative with the amount of linework you do. I had a go at this:
I really enjoyed the change of colours, but I'm not sure whether I felt that I needed to be more concise with my drawing.
Maybe that's an indication that my drawing style is okay as it is, or maybe it's an indication that I have just misunderstood the whole idea!
Finally, just for fun, here's a couple of guys facing off.
Now, going back to this freelance job, I thought I should post it here since it's animation work. I hope that I someday get some work involving characters. I guess I need to practice that myself for a while first though!
This is one of four videos I produced for SAB Miller, a brewing company. I'm not completely happy with how it turned out, but I had a very tight deadline and so couldn't achieve everything I had planned to.
