  2. just wondering did you pick up this kind of analysis when you did the course analytical figure drawing, or were you doing this before that.

    I'm finding that the way you go about analyzing stuff and the way you think about things very helpful.

  3. chromasketch: I tried to do this stuff before that class, but I didn't do it very well. The class was a huge help. I basically take the ideas and apply them to cartoons.

  4. charles Hu's class (3 kicks) was a huge help as well. They both have very different techniques, and I like both equally.

  5. Could you describe some of the differences between the two approaches?

    I'm amazed that you can post a tutorial or two each day!

  6. chromasketch: Kevin is more specific. He has a very step by step methodical approach. He uses the same specific forms for anatomy. You can draw very slow and take your time and he can come around and show you if something is off even by a millimeter. Charles is more organic. He might use a box for the hips one day and then a cylinder the next. he kind of just "draws" and you try to do what he does. It's more mysterious and you feel stuff out more.

  7. ah.. I see.. interesting.. have you by any chance seen or read any of the walt stanchfield books.. I find his drawings have a very... organic approach.. also I saw on youtube.. a documentary on the making of Princess Mononoke.. and in certain clips we see Hayao Miyazaki drawing.. I think that he draws very organically too.. I wonder if this is what you mean. If you haven't seen it.. check it out.. very interesting..

    Here's a link, just in case you're interested..

  8. chromasketch: Dave Pimentel sometimes teaches a stanchfield style drawing class. He puts a lot of notes on his blog. I use all that stuff.
