Imitate and Improve! – Sometimes when I go into The Internets,
I find cool pictures/art that I’d like to be able to draw. I save those
and try to imitate or reproduce by tracing or drawing “side-by-side”,
also putting my characters in such poses.
results are far better than me just sketching from zero, as I left my
senses of proportion and symmetry at work. An important thing to keep in
mind when imitating from real (or even drawn) pictures is that
“furries” have bigger head-to-body proportions so they become more
cartoonish, escaping from the “uncanny valley” effect. I spend big time
adjusting the size of the head to not seem stupidly big or disturbingly
human sized. Further, sometimes the result must be plumped or rounded,
for the same purposes.
The originals were found in 4chan boards, 1 and 3 from “casual girl” photos and 2 from a drawing of an artist called Kasutaso.
Future Ideas – A sketch/draft for an idea for a future story arc in
JRS web-comic, in which given a certain point Roy crashes a pub’s
private party disguised as a Japanese schoolgirl. Also testing some
First attempt at animation. Frame by frame, at 6 frames per second.
it has not been a good idea to check out my dashboard before uploading
this. With all the amazing animations that people do and upload, now I
feel quite ashamed… But well, let’s be glad there are amazing people
sharing wonders around the Internet to learn from!
return again to FIB, the Faculty of Informatics where I was for long
time and I left seeking for fortune and glory. As fortune and glory are a
mere illusion for people to spend their lives chasing chimeras,
trusting on the nonexistent and relying on the unworthy, I return to
where I belonged all along, to do Science and Wonders again.
thought this would be a good occasion to rescue a drawing I had in my
oldies folder since last year. I thought to redraw it entirely as I
don’t like anything I draw from yesterday, but better release it now.
Reference for The Flower Kings HERE (they are awesome and love!)
Meet the FIBer-Nerds: In the last JRS comic strip
I introduced some “FIB” nerds, unwillingly drawing them stereotyped
like Lamu’s stormtroopers Megane, Chibi and Perm (here I added
Kakugari). I will use them for future comics.
