Again, not quite Manga, but definitely some Manga influence. Looking at these now, I'm thinking they might be nice for animation.
Look for a few more later today.

These are really quick little studies. I've chosen a few to go back into with color, but that's mainly just to set a color scheme for a later illustration. I'm enjoying getting back into drawing the figure. I had no idea how much I missed it. 3 years is long enough to go without study of anatomy and figurative elements.
I've also been experimenting with inked lines and line weight in Photoshop. At first I found it very difficult to get a tapered line with a digital pen, but with practice, it seems to be getting easier now. I've ordered a new pen from Wacom. It's called the Wacom 6D. Evidently it mimics the feel of a real brush and/or marker. We'll see.
I also did a few "Mangaesque" head studies yesterday. I didn't want to go TOO far towards the Manga style, so I backed off a little with the one I colored and made it look a little more realistic.

At least Hillary is attempting to discuss the issues, and "how" she might go about reforming health care and deal with the war in Iraq.

We started with some 3-minute poses for gesture:
Then we moved on to some 30 minute poses...
Finally, we finished up with an hour long pose. I decided to sketch the figure from all different sides and then put together this vignette in Photoshop to see the progression. All in all a very productive session for me to get back into figure drawing. We plan to start going regularly. I suggest studying the figure for anyone interested in becoming a successful cartoonist.

Figure drawing class is tomorrow, and I'm totally stoked! I'll try to post some of those sketches on Monday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Now I know for some of you this will be like watching paint dry, but maybe enough are interested to make the uploads worth it. I'd love to get your feedback on these.
Here's the first one - Enjoy.
