neckStudies by elipse
I spent a couple of hours trying out the technique I learned from a Steve Houston video this evening about drawing the head, neck, and shoulders so that they all fit together. These are already much better than any of my previous attempts at drawing people as far as the neck goes.
gericaultDrawing by elipse
Drawing for my second Fancy Animals piece. This time I'm using Gericault's The Obsession of Envy as the master work side of the assignment. 
chimpSkullStudies2 by elipse
Studies for a painting I plan to do. I hope to do a second fancy animals piece before I start my new job at Sony.
sphynxUnderstructure by elipse
Fyuvix told me about an idea she had for practicing under structure. The first step was to trace a photo while placing the under structure where you think it should be. Then you redraw the same pose using the same under structure but without the photo. The last step is to make up a pose and draw it using the under structure you came up with in the previous steps. I think it's a good exercise and I feel like I need much more practice with this. My proportions are still pretty bad too, as thats something I've struggled with for years.

Hey guys,
Remember that dark portal I did a while back? Well, the project that was for has been released. Check out Moon Animate Make Up:… I REALLY hope they do another one of these, especially if it's Pokemon related! It NEEDS to be Pokemon related. O_O

Hey I really like your work. I'd like to get into animation, but it's too hard, lol.
elipse Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Thanks! It definitely isn't easy and requires a lot of time and effort. But if you really want to be an animator, there's no reason to let the difficulty of the process stop you. ^_^
