Sometimes I'll draw outside at this little park near my house.

All in all, I only do it maybe once a week. For the colours of skin, I haven't really done much besides look at various skin tone palettes but I haven't done anything about it.

Right now, I'm trying to learn up about drawing machines and strengthen and impliment perspective.

erm, well what you should do instead of just staring at the picture figure out how things work. Get under the skin, hell get under the muscles and get the bones down, then figure out the muscles work and how they connect, proportions, etc. Learn how they react whether it be contract or expand. memorize the stuff then learn something else related to the body. Do it more often then once i week too. i do many studies everyday as do all other future artists who want to be A list.

I found the last export I have, here. I am going through the process of storyboarding it all over again, to be more dynamic, fluid and visually interesting.

Err, the observational drawings I havebeen doing take hours to complete, I start with blocking usually with gesture and then I to get the proportions right and everything, it takes forever, especially when it's at the park, where the people are moving around.

I would prefer to finish one really good observational drawing than forty ten minute sketches.

I have been studying anatomy, it's part of the observations, I'm thinking about how things fit together, how much a muscle contracts and how a pupil reacts to change in light. I can also do without the well-to-do attitude. I know you're trying to help me improve but you're acting like I'm a child with a crayon, and you way isn't the only way.

hope your joking about the pupil part. anyway go get an anatomy book, i can link you too some good ones, and i wouldn't suggest going to the park. Go to a populated Starbucks or something where people dont move as much and draw their faces, arms, pose in the chair, etc. Learn structure and proportions before trying to learn muscles. Plus if your just looking at kids in the park your not learning where the muscles are, your just seeing the superficial ones like the biceps and calves etc. You need to find a balance between speed and quality, you would learn allot more from 10 quality sketches then one really good super long sketch. Im not treating you like a child with a crayon im treating you like a child with a pencil who wants to improve. i spend about 40 hours on a good week doing studies and reffed drawings, sure there are other ways, but dont think your the first person to ever pick up a pencil, there are tried and tested ways which succeed and fail. Its not like your marching onto unknown ground.

and what book is that? is it just somenobody who made an art book? there are plenty of those out there. And following just one book is a stupid idea. But if you dont want to take my advice have fun hitting a cement wall when the time comes.

Your animating reminds me of Jeinu's a bit. You should check out his demo it's REALLY good > Jeinu's Demo Reel. I reckon you could learn alot from his work. This version is better, you can see the things more clearly, you should try to use less brush stokes though :D

Wow, comparing me at all to him is a huge compliment. Yeah, I was gonna clean everything up after I finished the basics, but now, when I start it over I'm gonna try and have a even higher standard of everything.

Watching his reel really inspired me! I'm gonna practice drawing and animating a lot harder now, thanks!

He asks, because he thinks you dont practice enough. If you intend to become something art-related that thought would be justifiable. Thats why he asks.
The problem with making money from art is that you have to be very good to make that happen, and more so than in most other occupations, your pay depends directly on your skill

Well, I'm majoring in film and plan on working as a director, writer and editor.

I'm still in school and I work at a print shop as a graphic designer so I don't have much time to practice.

I don't have much time to practice. I don't have much time to practice.

However, next semester I'm going to take less courses so I can take some art courses, in particular, life drawing among other things.

thank you. Jq-b. your very right. Don't confine yourself into one book and draw some kids running around the playground. Your only hurting yourself, if you crawl out of this bunker that it sounds like you have build and started working harder i would be more then willing to share resources with you, whether it be books, artwork, tutorials, etc. Dont compare yourself to the artwork on newgrounds, this isnt the epitome of artwork, not even close. Instead look at artists who worked on the concepts of famous movies like starwars, 300, etc. or people who did the artwork for video games. Or even successful illustrators who do their own thing and who appear to know allot about many subjects. Not just some lucky fella who found a rich fan.

The concepts for 300, sure you could, just a bit of a weird way to say that isnt it?

hmm sounds like its too late for you unless you do some real turnaround. Well if you want to be a director or something thats fine, hope you have connections though. Also where are you attending college?

I'm not just confining myself to one book, or one method, I don't know why you are presuming what that. I'm looking in more than just one direction.

if you crawl out of this bunker that it sounds like you have build and started working harder i would be more then willing to share resources with you, whether it be books, artwork, tutorials, etc.

I also don't like that you are assuming I'm not working hard. It's really just insulting. You can go ahead and list and link away.

I really disagree with this. Every artist is admirable. I can admire his animation technique because he is pretty skilled, I can go to an artist here and find their work beautiful and comparable to famous works. Expression and emotion is the epitome of art, and if I find that here then I'll indulge myself by staring in awe. These are my peers, we are in the same school, why aren't these people worth the time of day?

I also admire successful and skillful artist, some of my favourites are Alex Ross, Range Murata, and Jhonen Vasquez.

It's never too late, I don't even know what I'm too late for either.

Making a trinity of drawing somewhat inspired by the Super-Toy short story series by Brian Aldiss. This one is the second "All Summer Long" one.

I'm doing two "When Winter Comes" drawings and two "In Other Seasons.
