Handout: ANGLES featuring jagged-eye by slyshand Handout: ANGLES featuring jagged-eye by slyshand
I've been busy and a bit slowed down since I went to Animazement.  TONS of fun, even got to sit down and draw some people for a bit.  I'll find those photos and post those later, I may even post a pic of me as Armstrong but not yet ^__^'  I've also been slowed down by the con flu... sickest I have been in suck a long damn time...

I finished Volume Two of Drawn to Life: 20 Golden years of Disney Master classes again.  I really could have gone for a third book, if there's any book on animation new or old it doesn't matter I'd love to get a new book to read in the mornings before I start re-reading drawn to life again ^__^

TO THE SUBJECT AT HAND

This handout was a few days in the making, and I hope it is coherent through being sick.  The point of this was angles, paying attention to angles, understanding you aren't locked to the angles of any reference material you may have used.  You can use the angles of the limbs or gesture to push whatever story you may be trying to tell or intensify what is already there.  Two things to remember, you're always drawing in perspective in gesture drawing, and all perspective helps and when playing with angles one of the best uses for playing with angles is to help avoid tangents, which destroy the illusion of a drawing in perspective.  Perspective good, tangents bad, angles can get you there.

Next handout will either be on animation, or on tangents which I am known to go off on.


The reference of which today was provided by :iconjagged-eye: he's got a whole host of awesome models and you should be a little careful to make sure you don't use his more artistic photography that isn't stock  (if I did that I apologize I tried to be careful :) )

Thank you, I'm trying to make sure I don't glaze over anything important while I'm writing these, I almost completely forgot about tangents and perspective should always be emphasized.  So if you see any gaps or something doesn't make sense let me know.

Yep, that's a good idea. I remember often pausing during some intense motion in animation and seeing how crazy it gets, like a frame where something close takes up the whole screen. When I first noticed that, I was like "dayum!"
