(if you can’t buy right now I’d at least love signal boosts! I promise I will come up with more original designs to sell in future, I’m specially accepting any suggestions for things you’d like to see)
Been wanting to draw so bad in the mornings but after being at work for 10+ hours with one 20 minute break (some days more some days none at all) while being told I am not fast enough or good enough or work long enough, it just sucks the life out of me day after day. How do people work in this industry and manage to have the energy and will to create their own work? Let alone the time?
I always had a thing for hand animated camera move and turn around… I can’t tell exactly why… probably cause it gives me the feeling I can manage everything and show exactly what I have in my head. that can seems stupid but it makes me feel like, sculpting the animation more than drawing it.
Hi everyone… sorry to answer so late the first is a shot I did in ”Myosis”(link) the second was an ”exercice”(link) in 1st year at gobelins the third is a shot I animated for the short ”Oni”(link) realized with friend as an FX exercise. the last (it was the more painful to do) is a shot extracted from our opening for the Annecy animation Festival ”Hurley’s Irish”(link)
Oh man I really don’t like seeing folks equating custom handmade plush fanart with bootlegs.
Yes, both are unauthorized plush, but there’s a huge difference between a carefully handcrafted piece of art made by one person and companies that mass produce items while promoting child labor, crime, and drugs. Fan artists are hardly a threat to major companies, and they certainly aren’t causing the human suffering that some of these Chinese producers are.
I sent this ask in advance in case you need to take your mind off work: What are your favorite outfits for your characters (besides their "default" clothes)? These can be outfits that have already been drawn (by you or anyone else) or outfits that you'd like to have your characters wear in the future. For Rafe and other robots this can also include paint jobs, swapped out parts, and alternate bodies. Feel free to include pics or inspirational reference photos if you want to procrastinate.
I would LOVE to do some sketches for this, maybe this weekend! To answer the question though, here are a few:
For Jay, I’ve always wanted to do more drawings of him in my usual casual Friday wear. It’d be similar to this. I wear a lot of button down plaid shirts. I wear baseball caps less these days though, they’re not allowed at work.
For Alex, I’d like to give her some more casual wear too. Fyuvix drew her in a cute hoodie and jeans as well as a bunch of adorable outfits for a gift for me once, and I’d also like to draw some dressier clothes for her. Despite her tomboyishness, Al does have her days where she likes to wear something cute, like a simple sundress. I’ve also wanted to draw her in prom attire from the short story between her and Rafe when she’s older. Myrcury beat me to it!
I’d love to draw a collection of Izzy’s spectacular shades. Lol.
Angel would be fun to draw in something less revealing. Maybe a suit of some kind, hahah.
And I have a million things for Rafe, he really is my passion, him and Alex at least. He used to have an extra set of arms at one point in the story which I eliminated after I saw Grievous, but I’ve stopped caring so much about him looking similar to other things, and as a result I would like to draw some of those old features! I liked this outfit and wouldn’t mind giving him clothes like that more often, usually shorts to accommodate those legs. Had a comedic short comic planned around trying to work with those legs and fashion….I wanted to draw him in a Christmas sweater last year and didn’t get to it either. And just redesigning his roboparts in general would be nice. Fancy paint jobs on his metal figure would be kickass.
Hi Jay! Just popping in for a friendly hello and how are ya :) Hope you've been having a good week so far!
Aw hey thank you! It’s been a hectic week already so far, with a lot of working really late, rudeness and disrespect at the job as usual…but outside of work it’s been great! Been plushing when I can which is nice! I hope yours is going good so far too and that things are going along great with those original plush you’re making!
Love it! The little shadow box thing you have all ghost pokemon on is so cool, where did you get it?
Thanks, that was a cheap set you could order from these little mail-in ad things from years and years ago…it’s cheapy but you assemble them yourself, they were intended for shot glasses if that helps! I have a nice glass case from Michaels too but didn’t take any closeups of it. Has my Cars collection in it.
