Thank you. =) I never considered character designs as something I'd find interesting, but I've been playing around a lot with them over the last few weeks. My fingers are crossed I'll improve on my gesture/figure drawings.

Very nice work! You definitely have an eye for rendering; your use of lighting and shading is very intriguing and realistic. In addition to that, your cartoon-y style is equally unique and distinguishable.

Keep it up! I hope that you make it to Pixar one day! :D

I also really like your cartoon style! It really looks like something you might see on TV or at the movies.

I guess it's time I update this, huh? :lol:

Here are some photographs for my B&W class.

I'll post stuff from my animation course later on. Unfortunately, since there are no prerequisite classes, there's almost NO character/hand-drawn animation. It's mostly live-action stuff, but there is a fairly interesting rotoscope project due early next week. I'll be sure to include it here.

Very cool. I've always wanted to take some black & white pics. What's that first one a picture of?

It's a picture of some posts sticking out of Lake Superior.

Here's a frame from a rotoscope project I did:

The animation:

Keep in mind that I did this in a short period of time which was very stressful for me. If I could go back, I would get rid of the circles in the beginning, the grey lines in the background, and cut off the last few seconds. But other than that, I hope you enjoy it. =)

I like those black and white photos, queen_of_painting, they're very striking. And that rotoscope is really cool! I love that sort of scribbley effect.

Nice black and white photos! And I like your rotoscope. A lot of tedious work! But it turned out cool; I like the scribbly look to it. :D

I had a friend who tried to do a very detailed rotoscoping project that was a couple minutes long. Needless to say, she dropped the amount of detail after awhile!

I think the rotoscope looks pretty good. Despite the slight roughness, your hard work still flows and shows nicely. Those black and white photos are also really pretty.

The rotoscope does look good! It looks kinda 1980s to me. In style, I mean. I think just because of the way it's animated.

Tres Bien!
Wow, that's kinda...creepy...in a good way though...
Is that charcoal or ink or what?

It's really good and has an interesting atmosphere. The only things that strike me as a little odd are the transitions between branch and trunk, and between the trunks and the water but that's only minor.

Very strange and quite surrealist, but I like it! The girl's face looks so delicate and the snakes swimming up to her are very ominous. Like Halos Nach Tariff, I'm interested in what medium this was done in, and also what the ideas behind it were.

Wow, amazing piece right there...I, too, would also like to know where the inspiration came from and what ideas are behind it.

I'm not actually very satisfied with the way these two things turned out, so I'll probably fix it today or tomorrow. I appreciate your input. =)

To answer everyone's question, the concept is falling into a dark state of mind (depression, stress, low self-confidence, etc.), which is represented by the forest in the river. I tried to make the young woman look vulnerable, alone, and lost. The snakes are what brings her trouble (it could be interpreted as a religious thing, but I don't intend for it to be so). BTW, I don't mean for this to sound so academic. I've never really explained my artwork before.
