Hey guys! You have the assignment sheets, so I'm not going to go into too much detail...just remember, for class next week, band sketches, and on the blog-- 5 varied shape-based sketches (going off one of those character types).
Here's some of the artists we looked at in class:
Rad Sechrist also has a fantastic "how-to" blog for character development/storyboarding.
Plus here's a great little comic on some quick character drawing lessons done by MY character development teacher, Brian Ralph!
ALSO-- here are some websites I use for finding reference photos:
gettyimages.com (general photos, can input specific search queries)
shorpy.com (historic photos)
apartmenttherapy.com (modern design in furniture & interior decorating)
Also also, Drawn.ca is an all-around fantastic illustration resource. It's the premier illustration blog, and they showcase all sorts of stuff--artists, inspiration, events, books, videos, everything about the illustration world. I recommend checking up with it often, and you can search or browse its archives for stuff like "ideas" "typography" "how-to" "process" and come up with all sorts of great things.
