As we are approaching the end of the project at work and many big challenges ahead, I am appreciating the studio even more for giving us the opportunity to escape in life drawing for a little bit.

I have noticed a pattern in the way I draw. I always start with the line of action, etc. Once I start fleshing up the pose, I always seem to work my way up from the legs/feet to the top... and I need to manage my time better because I always miss time to focus on hands and face! First three drawings are 3 mins poses, last three are 5 mins.

This week's model was a tall and elegant model...very tall. The hard part was to not exaggerate to the point of caricature. If I have a tendency to draw heads a little too big, this time I faced the opposite problem. Drawings are 2 mins, the last two are 3 mins.

Surprise this week as we did some costumed life drawing! Delightful challenge to say the least, I hope we get more of those as I feel it's an area I need to practice more! I kept reminding myself to start with the basics and not get lost in the lines of the fabric. As always, without the foundation, it's just a bunch of lines... I took a little break at some point to do a quick sketch of the model's face. All drawings are about 3-5 mins.
This Fall will be a busy and beautiful one in terms of animated movies. I've had the pleasure to work on two marvelous ones. Why not see both? :)
A year ago I started working on a very special movie. The Book of Life is a film directed by Jorge Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo Del Toro. It's a beautiful tale with a very unique, bright and festive visual style. I am looking forward to see the final version! Coming out on October 17th
. ...and for the curious, I worked on shots at 1 min/ 1:06 and 1:20/1:24
At the end of February I got an opportunity to come and join the animation team at Disney and work on the new animated feature Big Hero 6 coming out on November 7th. I won't say anything else, have a look at this most appealing teaser:
