This was originally intended as blog designed so that Andy Norton, a postgraduate in Creative Digital Media, could discuss his influences whilst working on a comic for his Creative Portfolio Development module on that master’s degree.
Now, the blog is intended to share articles relevant to his interests, as well as his artwork (past and present), as an experience graphic designer, with a background in illustration and animation.

Post a Drawing Every Day- 36- 'Blocky' Studies (Loomis' Fun with a Pencil)
I am at the part of the book in which Loomis encourages the student to add 'blocky' shapes to the mix when making a face. And now studying these heads now have an angular approach to them, rather then an organically rounded approach. As long as Loomis doesn't encourage the 2D 'super-flat' approach, over the '3-D' drawing approach, I might learn to stop worrying and get my faces an achievement of "sense of bone and ruggedness of character."[Loomis]
