We had a great turnout this week! Jinny began the meeting by giving us handouts about characters and silhouettes. We then drew gestures with pixelovely! Jinny emphasized the importance of altering the sketch from the reference for a more readable silhouette. For example- the first image was a figure with their arms behind them, so to make it more clear we widened the gap. Otherwise, it would have looked like one wide, awkward arm.
After warming up, we drew the ASC's mascot.
Ace will be appearing in the blog layout very soon, so keep an eye out!
In case you missed it ( or would like a refresher) here are the references Jinny mentioned:
