For one of my classes (on my other blog) we had to use our favorite live-action movie for some composition/gesture studies, which is District 9 for me! Well, I got a little carried away and decided afterwards to take a small break from mountains of school work to doodle a couple silly things.
Because I would like to think spring break still owes me (being sick the entire time), I’m still having fun applying new techniques to The Lego Movie fanart, rather than focus on school work.
Or work work.
In case you’re unaware, The Lego Movie is completely awesome! With such a great cast of characters, I took this opportunity to test out a few styles and techniques while getting all the Legos out of my system.
Spoiler alert: it’s been a week and I’m still drawing them.
Spring break is here finally! Meaning I have more time to draw whatever I want while getting a little character design practice in.
This time I used the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and really wanted to keep it simple while emphasizing shapes and body types. I like the result but critiques are more than welcome!
Here’s a little look-see into the process!
I’m not going to say much about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty except:
PLEASE GO SEE THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY
It took the spot of my all-time favorite movie before it finished and I’m not even going to embarrass myself by saying how many times I saw it in theaters *cough 7 cough*. So naturally I drew some goofy fanart in preparation for a more ambitious piece I’m currently working on.
This was really simple, mainly for costume reference (every time I saw the movie I had to edit this a little more).
Just a basic Walter design I might make into a sticker for my Mac.
I should probably mention that Ben Stiller’s huge influence on this film made me have to revisit all my favorite films/characters of his. It’s getting a little out of hand.“Did somebody say wonder?”
Occasionally on Twitter I’ll ask my followers for something fun to draw (animals, Pokémon, TV characters) mostly to practice with new Photoshop brushes. The results this time were pretty cute.
and a few extras.
After a very fun and productive Christmas break, I’m comfortably settled into the new semester and ready to update again.
This is just a reminder that while my blog may occasionally be on hiatus, my newly made Instagram [@blipbloops] is consistently being updated with sketches, puppies and a little of the usual digital art.
Anyone else watch all 4 days of AMC’s Breaking Bad marathon until your eyes bled?
