Day 22

Bought a clutch pencil today, and this is the result! Used another figure of mine as reference. This took me so many hours, I think I’ll do simpler pieces for the next couple days.

edit: I see many proportion problems. I must block out the figure carefully and with more detail the next time.

Day 20 & 21

Construction practice with Wall-E and drapery with Coraline. Both are drawn from the figures I have. Clearly more practice is needed!

Day 18 and 19

February 24, 2013

 

day 17 day 18

Yesterday’s drawing plus today’s Lion anatomy study. I think I’ll stick to pencil for a while.

Some anatomical notes-

1) The cat’s clavicle is buried in the region of the shoulder muscle, it’s a “floating bone”, it doesn’t connect to the rest body via any bone. This allows it to go through any opening it can fit it’s head into.

2) Similarly, so is the scapula. It “floats” above the shoulder muscles. This is a defining feature of a cat and part of what gives it that distinct stalking feel of a cat’s walk.

3) They walk on their toes like most animals, what we think of as feet, are actually just the toes. The rest of the feet goes up the leg.

4) The front paws has a “Dew claw” sticking out the back, a lot of mammals have it. These typically do not touch the ground at all when they walk.

Hands hands hands. I feel like I should draw even more but I’m also animating at the same time.

Maybe I should doddle when I’m in the loo?

20130213-022900.jpg

Hands today, hand on left looks wrong, could be proportions or bad foreshortening. Tomorrow will probably be hands again until I get it right.
