So, ages ago I did some arts (top) of a character dancing because I was listening to this song a bunch and it was the natural result. It wasn’t until afterward that I realized HOW DAMN HELPFUL it was, for practice.
It helps you work on a bunch of things: consistency, anatomy, dynamic poses, gestures, and implying a character’s personality via said gestures, it helps you loosen up to work on bigger projects, and you know what it’s just plain FUN.
Tonight I decided to kick artblock in the teeth and work on poses at the same time, and sketched up a new version (bottom).
SO HERE’S MY PROPOSAL:
Pick out a tune and draw a character of yours (or your favorite character from something — whatever, all that matters is you’re DRAWIN’) rockin’ out to it. It can be super loose sketches or a finished thing. Draw a handful of poses, try out different angles and perspectives!
LET’S DRAW SOME SILLY THINGS AND LEARN STUFF WHILE DOING IT.
And when you’re done, if you wanna upload it, tag it with #projectboogie so I can love you.
Show me your boogie.
I admit I wasn’t listening to anything. I’m sorry. I was at work. I just tried to channel boogie.
