More Life Drawing at Aardman

16 Oct

We’re nearly half way through our Character Animation course at Aardman studios, in Bristol. Every week we have life drawing classes, and here’s a collection of my life drawings from week 3 and 4.

The animation exercises we were studying in those weeks, included someone swinging a baseball bat and a weight lifter – hopefully in these drawings you’ll recognise some of the poses that would be used for such an animation.

As we progressed throughout the exercises, we were asked to show the weight in our drawings, which is harder than it sounds. I experimented by making the lines darker in the areas where I think the weight is resting. For the poses where the model is lifting weights, these become black blobs…well, they were heavy, so my mark making became heavy too.

In the bottom right hand corner, you’ll spot a print from Glen Keane’s latest short “Duet”. In our first week at Aardman, I was lucky enough to meet him, and he signed my print…I had a space at the end of my display box, so I’ve included it for you to see. I love it!
