Cafe Sketch 10-18-11


  1. Great work, what medium are you using? The drawings are very clean and finalized (which I love) but I think this class is pushing loose strokes and suggestions of movement. Perhaps less gesture and more motion. But I really like your work.

  2. I love your style Bethany, but maybe a good exercise for you could be trying to push more toward realism here and there. I know you're dope at illustrating, but make sure you "observe" as well. Also, a few of these feel kind of "weightless". Overall though, you're stuff is awesome as usual.

  3. Bethany,
    A good range of poses and good variety of subjects.
    Avoid line fills. You're making gestures for animation - not still cartoons. Limit yourself to putting lines in places like sweater collars and other clothing details. Use line weight to emphasize shadow side of form.
    The couple in the upper left corner if the first page has a lot of good qualities here.
    Think more about the reaching and throwing poses. Walking poses are good - but look more to the figure in motion.
    Well done.
