Tag Archives: 642 things to draw

Lots going on

Standard

These last couple of weeks I have been busy finishing off the llama muscles , I then did a walk and run cycle with the llama ( walk cycle will be put up on my vimeo account soon ) and then proceeded to give him is skin head and dignity back – I’ve yet to do more walk / run cycles with him and his new skin on but he is looking much better appearance wise.

although work has got in the way a bit this week I’ve still managed to get one more of my 642 things to draw done this weeks ( although technically I should say last weeks task was to draw girlish laughter – this wan’t to difficult because living in a house with 3 other girls inspiration for such a subject comes very easily.

I’ve also been working on more knitted triangles for my Gran’s birthday bunting – I must confess it hasn’t quite been one a day like I had hoped ( perhaps a bit ambitious there ) but my collection has definitely grown , I will keep at it on my spare evenings and have a few long car and train journeys coming up this month so will be able to make good use of that time ! Here is what I have so far – I hope to at least double my collection here in time for my Gran’s birthday party !

Lastly I have been working on some silhouettes which I will be developing into character designs for a project I’m working on for a school literacy program based on king Arthur

And that’s just about everything I’ve been doing instead of writing my blog for the last two weeks – maybe not very disciplined blog wise but at least it’s evidence of creative productivity – More up dates soon !

my creative triathlon : puppet making ,drawing and knitting

Standard

After my successful tests last week with the llama puppet , this week I started rebuilding his bodily muscle. This time a little more shaped than before. I focused most of my attention on building up the muscles around the legs as well as leaving access points to get to the armature joints.

additional creative projects of the week included this weeks entry of 642 things to draw – which was a keyboard

I’ve also started a new little creative project on the side, my Gran turns 90 this year and we are throwing her a big birthday party and as she has always been a keen knitter. I have decided to make knitted bunting for the occasion this week I managed to fit in one a day which was great !here they are so far !

642 things to draw!!

Standard

ImageFor my Birthday my amazing sister , Sarah , gave me this fantastic sketchbook called 642 things to draw – as you can guess it gives you the names of 642 things and a space to draw them. This is my first entry – a baguette !

Image

I would like to say I’m going to do an entry every day but I think that might be a bit ambitious so I’m going to aim for once a week and will try to remember to post them on here !

I went into the studio today to prepare it for animating next week – I randomly have lots of days and half days off next week so am going to go for a animation marathon with my llama and spoon crab and possibly even the night sparrow we shall see , so come back next week to find out what I’ve drawn and hopefully with any luck some fantastic beautiful animation tests!
