Some Sketches

As mentioned I upload some of my sketches. They are far away from perfect but when I compare the last ones with the first drawings... man, there is a big improvement.
Hope you like them

My first Q&A

So today I had my first Q&A with my mentor. His name is Tim Crawfurd. He worked on nearly every Pixar movie since A Bug's Life. Here you can see his credits and his reel
It was really great asking him all kind of questions about Pixar, his work there and how he works on different shots.
Looking forward to the next Q&A.

I'm still watching all videos in the Trainging Video's and Library section. Still to cover the whole forum. Next week our first real assignment starts and than I'll post some sketchings and some poses with the Stu-Character.
I will try to sketch everyday so I get really into it. I think and know that this will improve my workflow a lot when I learn to draw quick and good.

New book to read

Just read the book "Simplified drawing for planning animation" by Wayne Gilbert. I really think that this book will help me to get better in sketching poses. Gilbert has good tips in reducing the human anatomy to simple geometric forms. So when my next drawings specially the line or arch of action will be clearer the credit goes to Mr. Gilbert :-)

Only one week left

In one week the new Term will start at AM and I'm so excited, I can't find words for that. In the last Q&A Victoria and Jay talked about what will happen with us when we get access to the hole online campus. Jay said the first week is all about reading the forum, and getting in touch with everything.
I didn't find the time to sketch some poses like expected but I'll try to sketch this week.
Also my goal for this week is to relax as much as I can before the animation-madness starts :)
So stay tuned because in the next weeks I will upload the first AM assignments I finish.
