:star: A Handsome Otter!



Took longer than I thought for the sketch! lol Dakkan's fun to draw! X3 Time for bed. Will finish the painting tomorrow when I come back from work in the morning!

:star: Red-Oak Bo Staff



I couldn't find a pose on the net suitable to what I have pictured for my next speed painting exercise featuring Dakkan from Beyond the Western Deep (another awesome protagonist to the series)!


So I decided to grab my camera and strike a pose!

The bottom-line is - don't be embarrassed to use references! Especially with your camera and your own pose! 

(And yes FYI I did buy that Chinese Red-Oak Bo Staff from the martial arts store a few suburbs away - it's very durable and can crack bones if used with force!)

Oh and also!

:iconstrykeforce2005: and Jason - I'll be completing this second speed-painting exercise in preparation for your FULL COLOR and RENDERED commissions (to be worked on during Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday - my days off work). I'm starting off with Jason's followed by Taylor. Thanks for being patient! 8-)


:star: What did you just say...?







:star: Watch me cry at the end of this video...! ;__; 



Here's a chance for you guys to see what it's like to be working on a project like 'Beyond the Western Deep: The Movie' through my lens! 8-)

Well done. :clap:

By the way, how much was that Bo staff?

That's be around $30-40 AUD. At the time of purchase it'd probably cost $25-30 USD. ;) Not as flexible and light as the Tiger Bamboo but it can sure break bones. XD

Ignore that last comment. Seems phone emoji don't work on the app.

Was trying to give a thumbs up.

I always enjoy watching your sketching process. Dakkan's face is so expressive. :)

How was the experience - there's so much to learn about the human anatomy! And how are you doing at CalARTS? :D

Thanks for checking out my gallery!

I wish I was at CalArts... This is part of my portfolio I'm going to send in with my application to their character animation program. 

I went to to a summer camp at Art Institute and one of my four hour classes was drawing a clothed model; I ended up with around 60 sketches. It was so much fun, and my human drawings immensely improved since then, so I've been looking up models online to draw. I found the two poses here online. I'll definitely solicit friends and family to draw some clothed poses, but I don't think I'll be doing any live nude poses until college. 
(I should probably add some of that to my description, no...? Oops.)

Listening to this again and I was struck with something. Janik's voice actress reminds me a lot of Kelly Sheridan www.behindthevoiceactors.com/K…

Whoops! I deleted the video since I've fixed up a few things PLUS - I decided to throw in all of what I've done so far in terms of the audio. ;)

Thanks for the feedback as always Fruitso, you won't want to miss the extras once I've re-uploaded the video. X3
