Digital Airbrush

I guess Airbrush is most suitable to me due to its attributes of being opaque and smooth, it is something like a mix between oil and watercolor and thus I will treat it as such.

I've written a tutorial of my approach (unfortunately in German :0).

OK! In my last post I have developed the "letters" that are used to build up a drawing.
Now I have to assimilate any subjects I see so that I get to know the "words and sentences" of the world to broaden my ideas and to be able to instantaneously interepret them into a drawing.

Uff! I am glad that Mandy reminded me how important construction is in animation, else I probably would become an illustrator rather than an animator ;o

Thanks to everyone whom I questioned on msn :D
especially, ye.., Mandy!

personalities, activities, details, etc." - Walt Stanchfield

Drawing - A synonym for mental modelling?

Something that really helps me when drawing is trying to have these certain senses...
A sense for the gesture, feeling the action/rhythm and a sense for the shapes, feeling the surface.

Drawing should be fun!

I've lately been inspired by many good draftsmen who all told me the more or less same:
Draw anything you see every day!

I've really been too much into thinking about techniques and I've pushed myself too forceful
instead of being loose and regarding drawing as a process that is fun.
After having this insight I decided to reduce my steps to 2 or maybe 3:
1. drawing the gesture/defining the rough shape (I call it spacing)
2. understanding of the three-dimensionality
(3. rendering)

No sooner said than done:

Old one

This drawing is quite old, but I like this one pretty much and I currently do not have any cool stuff...
so, there it is:
