nice shapes and attitudes on these collection of sketches. good stuff!
I agree dude. Spot on. And the trick is, just draw however you want. Get it down on paper. Get the life of the character first. Then edit. Look for rhythms in the pose and try and get those with the longest line possible. Just think s curves and negative space. Your characters are really nice man. Your spork guy and barbaron savage guys really stand out. Keep up the good work.
I'm always amazed by how professionally you can utilize simple shapes and create such lively and expressive characters... I must have your power. Swordfight at midnight? What do you say?
Thanks Gabriel. You know what? Last year I had an interview with Sony Animation and they told me my shapes weren't pushed enough. So I've spent the whole year trying to work on that. So I'm so happy you noticed. And for the sword fight, I am mightier with the pen than with the sword I'm afraid, haha, and Im too young to die. You work is looking nice too man. Thanks for the comment. Take care.
And that is quite true. It's amazing how expressive simple shapes can be even on their own. It can speak for the character without making him/her move or talk. It makes them more appealing to the eye and easily recognizable. I'm still in the phase of constantly covering up my errors and deficiencies with too many details, but I'm desperately trying to "Tartakovsky up" my style a bit, haha. You're great inspiration for that. Seriously, man, lot's of respect.
