wow! nice stuff going on!
Hey John.Are you still receiving candidates?
I have a question. I noticed on some of these drawings, the construction is very literal(very defined spheres, cylinders, cones, etc.) while with others, it's more roughed in with a lot of searching lines. I tend to "feel" out the shapes of a drawing with a lot of searching lines, but in the end it looks a bit rough. Is this the wrong way to go about it?
Well done guys, keep up the good work! Do you think I could get in on this John?
Are we still able to enroll?
Nice work, everyone. I hope the end result is a new wave of quality in animation, Cartoon Network is in certainly need.I'll be here, I guess. Someone's still got to sort mail and flip burgers.
Absolutely Maxif you do the exercises, learn construction etc. and impress mepost some links for me in the comments and I'll check out your progress
Hi John,Keep up the good work with the college, it's great to see this progress.Here are a few of my studies if you don't mind having a quick look. Many more to come soon and constructive criticism is very welcome!Thank you.
The people who drew these sure are talented! Hey John do you want a couple images of the different stages of a drawing posted or just one finished cleaned up drawing?
Hi John!I'm drawing every day now, still following PB examples but will soon get to other stuff.Here's the link.Cheers,Rita
Never mind the sour grape that slipped out before. I shouldn't post from the workplace, it gives me a dour edge.After my finger heals more I'll try some real exercises instead of the knee-jerk rush jobs I posted. Although there's no tag category for "lessons", or "exercises" to find them all easily. Was there ever a set number of them that need to be done?
Wow, those are some nice studies! All of them are well done!I posted some more stuff one of my blogs. Better scans of stuff and took a try at the backwards perspective. Click here to check them outI'm going to work on some other stuff and post them shortly!-Ben
Hi John. I'd love to hone my cartooning skills. I've been doing construction lessons for 2 years now, but I didn't scan the first steps on any of them. I'll do that from now on. I've been studying your BG and animation posts too.BG studies Hereanimation lessons Here (scroll down) Thanks!
How advanced would you say these studies are? I'm still working on the first two pages of the Preston Blair book (all sequestered in a sketch book) and would like to know how fast one should advance towards studying work like this.
Hey John! Me, Thomas, again!I just posted some constructions I sweat out today! Please tjeck'em out Cheers - Thomas
Hiya John.i took a stab at cleaning up your wrinkly rooster from a few post ago, take a look.
Really great studies! Gonna start in the weekend.John, all the Heartaches inks are done. If you like them I can send them to you in bigger resolutions.You can see them on my blog:mitchoo.blogspot.com
Hi John,Here's a link to some of my studies.
That's all amazing stuff.
Each drawing has a lot of expression, as well being an exercise. I guess, even though they're exercises, you have to do them with feeling.Just subjectively, the one that appeals to me the most, is the one with the mice on the windowsill, because of how simply its executed, and how it puts the figures into the space. You sense, very clearly, the space around the mice.
Hey John, here is a StudyI have more, but they won't scan properly, I'll upload them later and link em to you. Thanks!
Hi John, these drawings are very inspiring. HOpefully i can reach this level one day....I've been plugging away with the drawing exercises, and hopefully i'm progressing. Would love for you to check it out. Thanks again.HERE
Those are some pretty great results! I'd love to see a before/after comparison after a month or two.
Hey John. I don't draw very often, but when I do I've tried to at least achieve a solid drawing with good form, things I never paid much mind to before reading your site. I posted some drawings and would love to hear your thoughts. Thankshttp://wighats.blogspot.com/
hey Jonh how can I join the group??These are very cool drawings, congrats to everyone!
What do the little red arrows on the first picture of the rabbit represent?
Here's another one.
forbidden hippo,the little red arrows are to show me where my drawing differs from the original. They indicate where the limbs should be moved to be more accurate.
Hi John, I'm finding your lessons incredibly useful - I've posted a link to some of my recent studies http://cartoonquarry.blogspot.com. I would love to be invited to the Cartoon College site and improve my studying further.
Aaahh. Thanks Kelly Toon.
Whoooaah. How good do we need to be to get into the Cartoon College?
I am going to start doing more and more of your lessons, any chance of having more openings at your Cartoon College? My blog;http://learninganimation.blogspot.com
