Jerry Loomy #2

The end has come for my Stephen Silver course on Schoolism. The last assignment was to redo a character design we did based on a brief from the first assignment. The blue one below is the revised version and at the bottom one is a comparison of the two.

The course has been so good! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve the foundations of their drawing and design. He covers a lot of bases, from shapes, silhouettes and rhythm, to hands, faces and feet, the importance of a sketchbook and also tips on being a professional in the industry.
Originally when I did my first Jerry Loomy, I felt pretty happy with the design but now in comparison to the newest one I can see all the weaknesses I had at the beginning but luckily Ive been able to improve on them and hopefully I will be able to keep up the motivation to carry on with Stephen's word of advice and inspiration.

New Project

Now I am almost finished my Stephen SIlver Character Design course, Ive started a few other projects. One of which is a little cowboy story. Here I have redesigned an old character and hopefully Ill find the time to design some other characters to go with this guy. Still feeling him out trying to find the right design.

Parc Merveilleux...Encore!

Another trip to Parc Merveilleux in Luxembourg for more animal drawing practice. Been doing some more Mike Mattessi studies on his WEBSITE which helped me loads on this trip. Possibly developing an obsession with raccoons! They have 3 there, I call them Fatty, Shakers and Number 3. Shakers is really old and walks kind of funny, he is my favourite!
