Pose maniac2

Week 2 and 3 of pose maniac. First one is 45 second sketches, and the second is 30 second sketches.

I've also started doing daily self portraits. I got the idea from one of my inspirations, Algenpfelger who had a daily self portrait thread. He started out as a decent artist, but is now crazy good. It's kinda narcissistic, but i figure its the best way to learn value/color from life... and all i have to do is look at a mirror. portraits took 45 mins to an hr. Most of my portraits will include my headphones. I <3 me some pandora. Also, i'll be sure not to make any more funny faces for portraits. My face was becoming sore from constantly making that 1 weird expression.

Pose maniac!!

Here are some 30/45 second sketches from pose maniac. I do 1 row a night, so this is from the past 10 days. Im actually kinda ashamed of the first 7 rows. Theyre blocky and my line quality looks rather clumsy. Then somehow something must have clicked on day 8-10 b/c things are starting to not look like turds.

This is the first time ive logged my drawings, and im kinda diggin it. I cant wait to see how what i'll be able to produce 1 month from now.

Market carts

I made a market cart! 1244 tris, 1024x1024 texture. I wanted it to have a gypsy/travelers feel, as well as a whimsicalness(possibly a made up word). To make the silhouette more unique, i decided to cut the cart in half and put in those accordian extension-connector thingies that you see on buses. I really liked the way it turned out, considering I just started modeling in Maya with no initial concept sketched out. It's kind of a bad habit im trying (but failing) to break.
