The Sketch With No Name

So remember my Star Wars Rey “warm up” drawing yesterday that turned into my regular drawing? Well today I drew the picture I was warming up to draw. You see I still kept my warm up powers from the Rey picture and harnessed them for a full 24 hours.

So I could draw Clint Eastwood.

So, yeah, I finally got that out of it. I’m pleased with both. Gotta improve more though.

The Sketch Awakens

Well today I tried to do a quick warm up before figuring out what I wanted to draw when I figured out I wanted to draw my warm up. And a couple hours later I ended up with this.

I didn’t have a white bright enough to capture her perfect teeth.

Animating Kylo Ren

“We’re not done yet…”

Hey, Kylo, you’re right!

With some free time and Gif making skillz I decided to install the new After Effects and create a little something. I’ve been meaning to do something with Star Wars Episode 7 but haven’t had the time.

So I just wanted to simply create a loopable gif involving Kylo Ren. And I did. In fact, here it is:

Untitled-2

Now, you’re probably thinking, “Big whoop. Pretty simple. Pretty boring.” And that’s fine. But let me tell yuh somethin’, Mene Gene. Animating a “simple” gif as this takes a while. From the hood blowing, to the snow falling, the jittering of the lightsaber, to the pulsing red glow on Kylo himself. Barely 5 seconds. Takes a couple hours. And it doesn’t even loop that well.

I love creating little things such as this. I look forward to doing simple little animations like this with some of my illustrations in the future.

I’m looking to get back into some digital painting. Basil Gogos has inspired me once more and there’s a Bride of Frankenstein that I’m dying to paint. Hopefully I can start next weekend.
