Life Drawing practice

Trying to regularly go life drawing in and around uni work, its proving difficult but every little counts, here are a few from the past couple of days. These range from 20 seconds to 2 minutes. Soon i'll be converting to pen to improve my use of line and try to speed up my sketching, whilst still improving my observational skills.

Animation has begun!!

So, I'm currently in the process of making my first animated short film, animation is in progress with hopefully the first 30 second to be completed within the next 2 weeks. At least I hope so otherwise I'll fail my uni module :P
Here's a quick snap of the opening sequence, its just a piece of simple animation to run along side the title at the start but every little counts :)

Preparation for CalArts 2014

So, im looking into applying to CalArts for 2014 and will be trying to constantly practice life drawing until then, obviously uni will get in the way over the next couple of months but after that, i am not going to stop drawing! For those who don't know CalArts is ranked the 2nd best animation school in the world (1st in my opinion) so doesn't just accept anyone and everyone. This is something ive been considering for a good 2 years and have only recently decided heck, i'll probably not get in, but just lets go for it and see what happens. I'd really appreciate any feedback what-so-ever so please :)

Ive recently joint a lil' group with a few other budding animators all looking to apply to CalArts 2014, we've decided to set small assignments to keep us drawing ready to apply. Hopefully we'll all improve to awesome extents and be accepted into there with open arms... Well we can dream, anyway.

Heres a few life drawing scribbles ive recently done, the task was 100 hands but with uni biting down hard i only managed 50, but its better than nothing so its all positive progress!

And lastly a few sketches from an external life drawing class i attended when i had time, im looking to go to a lot more of these but unfortunately not until uni's out of the way.
