Blackwing Sketchbook

I am always looking on other people's blogs for inspiration, especially animation artists, like Blackwing Sketchbook

I find her brush work so simple, but so effective, in drawing human figues- even in a rough state.

She also has a simplistic way of colouring and shading, like in this picture above.

This technique even works for her life drawing, as shown above. I like how she depicts such complex detail, like a pony tail, very briskly.

I also find some of her mark making interesting, like in this quick drawing. I like how she has quickly drawn the shape of her leg, and her hand like that.

Again in this picture too, I find how she has done the hands an interesting approach. It just makes me want to use a brush pen to do some quick life drawing.

"Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself..."

Hello. I am Andrew 'Andy' Norton. I am currently doing a Masters in Creative Digital Media, which includes a Creative Portfolio Development module- hence why this blog has appeared.

I need to keep an on-line scrapbook, that shows off what images inspire me on a day to day basis, and hopefully will be helpful to those around me what me tick on a creative level.

I hope that anyone, who goes through this blog, will understand what influences me as an artist/animation graduate/creative person.
I hope you will look forward to my first post.
