Art and Reference point
The other day I came across this awesome program by accident (I don’t even remember what I was actually searching for, but on the several times I’ve looked for a program like this I’ve had no luck). It’s cool enough that I wanted to share it. It’s called DesignDoll (website here) and it’s a program that lets you shape and pose a human figure pretty much however you want.There’s a trial version with no expiration date that can be downloaded for free, as well as the “pro license” version priced at $79. And to make it a bit more convenient, there’s a library of pre-set hand poses you can pick from as well, and then change the pose from that if you like. I just wanted to add a little more to this. That shaded ball on the left is your light source. Oh and all those other nifty looking things in that bottom bar there, yeah it’s what you think. Plus for all you lovely people who want something a little more simplified to use as a pose reference

Gesure drawing basics Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Just give me a day or two to whip something up..." Um. Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures.

--- Color is Value Once a long time ago I was trying to pick the brain of a co-worker about color. He seemed to be really good with color and I was trying to get some guidance and help. He didn't really know what to tell me. He just shrugged and said, "All you need to know is that color is value. That's it." A simple statement, but I found it to be very helpful and insightful. So....what does it mean? So basically it means that, even though you're working with color, the painting should still work if it's converted back into a black, white and grey sketch, and should still follow the general rules about value that I talked about last post. Photoshop has the ability to convert any color image into black and white so that you can check your values easily if you're working digitally. and Photoshop will convert your image to black, white and grey so you can check your values. I often felt that the black and white images looked better than the final color.

Model Sheets необходимы, когда большое количество художников участвуют в производстве мультипликационного фильма, чтобы помочь сохранить преемственность персонажей от сцены к сцене. Так же Model Sheets очень важен тем, что помогает раскрыть персонажа с разных сторон, дабы понять "работает" ли сам образ, вызывает ли он верные эмоции. Ни одна студия, ни один мультипликационный проект никогда не пропускает столь важный процесс. Предлагаю Вам ознакомиться с Model Sheets известных и любимых нам персонажей!
