kiki’s delivery service was on tv today. I love sketching characters from the ghibli movies, the designs seem so simple as there aren’t many details but are unique in their own way! *____*
my sketchbook is full of faces. I should be practising something else. like… colours or backgrounds or anatomy or… anything but faces |D
those are some older sketches, I really love the effect of that waterbrush on fineliners…
mulan really is one of my favourite disney movies. I love the story, the characters and the animation-style of that one. I don’t know how many times I’ve watched it until now. and I’ll watch it again. and again and again!
I went for a “drawing weekend” at Salamandra’s place. it was totally awesome :D drawing, running after super-schweet cats, all that marvelous food… haaaaaarrr! *v*
actually I never did something like that before. of course conventions are the same in a way, you’re lying around, eating sweets, drawing in con-hons and discussing animes and manga.
but intensely working on a project is different though. each of us has started a new story and worked on it for about 3 days! it was some kind of team work: we were discussing our storyboarding and plots, asking for help if something didn’t work out and so on. Salamandra actually finished the sketches, which I think was really impressive. I managed to finish sketching the first 5 pages. that’s quite a lot for me, as I’m always distracted by something, walking around, doing strange dances and drawing panels again and again until I’m happy with them.
and I must confess I am a shingeki no kyojin fan now. that animes totally kicks ass! I mean, WOW, story, designs and animation I’m so much into it OvO
now I need to organize the strange photos I took during the weekend and sketch the 11 other pages of my story hahaha
in the end, the long train ride was definitely worth it. I’m sure we will have to repeat such a drawing weekend soon!
oh wow… my longest blog entry ever!
me made another one.
and I have a twitteraccount now: @fruchtdrop
but I don’t know what I should be tweeting about XD I’m all nervous
to make a long story short:
I bought ink. I thought it was waterproof. it wasn’t. I didn’t care. :D
nananananananana (my very first) batman!
I’m really into drawing quick watercolour portraits right now :O
