Day 31

Well It's the last day of the month! 31/365! woooo! Let's hope Feb is just as good! I'm planning to go out to some different places to draw some scenery and see some different scenery! After seeing the gorilla that walks on two legs (for a prolonged period, compared to normal) I really wanted to go to the zoo!

Anyway! I've also been looking at some courses and talking to Amy about going to life drawing. I've mainly been looking at the short courses in 2D animation, photography or drawing at Central St.Martins

Here are today's pages:

Here is my page from this evening on the tube:

..and here is some 2D ball sketching, just wanted to get back into 2D so thought I would start at the foundation!

Day 30!

Wow 30 days! I have enjoyed the last month so much! can't believe I hadn't done this everyday anyway!

Well Tangled was FANTASTIC !! Can't believe it doesn't have more oscar nominations, looove Pascal! And Barney's Version was amazing, I was rather dehydrated after all the crying! Oh and 127hours was good too :)

Anyways, I read a few blogs the other day, and one by a storyboard artist, that would practise every morning, somethign he struggled to draw the day before, like he will concentrate on hands, or feet etc. So I feel like this would be a nice direction to go into for Feb!

Below are today's pages; I drew from the The Achieve Series; Animation, Disney (second in the series). Lots and lots of inspiration, I only hope I can draw 1/1000000000000000th of what they can one day!

I loved drawing Brer Rabbit!

Day 29

Well I did some drawing on forest gate platform just now and thought I had better upload now, as we are off to cineworld to see Tangled, 127 hours and Barney's version! I can't wait! Hopefully we can fit them all in with our passes :D.

So here's today's page:

I may update later tonight if I get to do some on the way home :)

Day 28

Hellloo, I woke up this morning crossing my fingers for sunshine soon, it's far too cold, I could hardly draw!

Anyway, there's a couple of links I've been meaning to post but kept forgetting and seeing them saved in my work email in draft's; so I figured I would do them now, whilst I have a spare 5 mins.

I forgot...well no I didn't forget about these amazing animations, just came across them again and remembered how awesome they are!


Some nice new (Maya) rigs to play with!

Morpheus Rig

Eleven Rig

Thanks to Amy (Amy-mation) to introducing me to Chris Ayers story, truly inspirational! I only found out about these books and his story a couple of days ago, can't believe I've been missing out! The title makes a lot of sense too if you read his story. 

The Daily Zoo

Oh also I would like to add

The Pixar Podcast

Great for fans and artists alike!

Just sorting through some anatomy and model sheet references at the moment, I will post them soon!

Also, I must not forget, today's drawings

Tube this morning:

Day 27 :)

Got a seat on the bus today so I decided to draw the people sat in front in case the tube was packed (which it was!)

and here's what I drew on the tube on the way home:

Some doodles whilst waiting for my work to cache :D

Day 25!

Day 25/365! woo

I managed to get a seat for one stop on the way back, so here's my page:

Oh and here's a page I forgot to add from yesterday!

It's great that a couple of people have joined in at work too! It's motivational, when there's people to egg each other on :)

Day 24!!


Had a creative flush on the train! so think up some nice ideas for a short film that me and my flat mate can work on, watch this space for updates!

And here's my page from today:

And one of the animator's at work gave me this pencil, it's great to draw with (which you can get here):

Thanks for looking! :D

Day 23

Drawing from memory today. I wanted to see if I could recreate poses from memory,  as creating drawings from imagination isn't my strong point..
I think I'll practice this approach more often! It was fun :)

Day 21!

Well today was rather busy and late at work, so I didn't get much opportunity to draw,  but I did draw one girl looking cold on the platform:

Day 18

Phew, what a day! got in at 9, and just got home!

So I managed to get a seat on the way home and got to draw! Although I was a tiny bit distracted by the comedian that got on advertising his comedy club and joking with the passengers, it was hilarious! Anyway here's the page:

 Hopefully I can spend this week/weekend coming up with an idea for a proper painting, I have a canvas ready!

So depending on where you are; Good morning, good evening and good night!

Day 17 woo!


Tube drawing day

This morning, I had about 1 minute worth of seat time so puled out the sketch book quickly (more successful than the evening anyhow!):

This evening:

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day :D

Good morning, good evening and good night!

Day 16

Well I added some more to my painting from yesterday. Not had chance to do much else today, as I've been working mostly on AnimTutor work. Trying to think of a subject i'd like to paint next!

Unfinished, but just getting an idea for the picture as a whole now :)

Oh and I recommend this book: To Infinity and Beyond

Day 15!


Well today I decided to paint, but as I haven't done it for a rather long time, I decided to use a paint by numbers set I had. Thought I could concentrate on the acrylic, rather then finding a subject. Anyway, it was fun! Think I'm going to finish the rest tomorrow:

Day 13! Unlucky for some

I got a seat on the way back today :) managed to fit in a page from Liverpool Street. I found it interesting how (even though there was room) that two strangers stood so close!

Day 12 :)

Welll no seats on the tube today!

Just did some doodles when I got home:

And here are some doodles I did in some spare time I had at work, I copied them from Eric Goldberg's Animation Crash Course. It's great to see how he constructs characters and having a go, helps me to see this better :)

Thanks for looking!
