We drove out to the beach yesterday with some friends. Beautiful day, but the riptide was amazingly strong. A wave caught my legs and back-flipped me onto my head. I gave Azure a sunhat for some reason. The little travel sketchbook I have isn't really made for watercolor. I think I need to get myself a better one going forward.
Last Sunday was Azure's birthday so we took a walk out to Central Park and rented a rowboat on the lake. I managed to get this sketched before the wind blew our boat away into the banks on the far side. Then we rowed back and went way uptown for some excellent Indian food.
This may or may not be the last model session of the summer season. I'll try to keep posting life drawing each week regardless since we missed so many of the classes this time around. Gotta try to get to the zoo!
I'm going to be compiling in the next week all the various life-drawings posted on the blog into a single "Life Drawing" page up on the main header.
Working on boards for a new animation production about Tai-Chi that my wife is currently directing. She's been handling most of the storyboarding work herself but I have a few more shots beside these coming.
We're working fast and loose on the boards for the most part , but since these shots are the first to introduce the character Lily and the technique of Tai_Chi I wanted to make sure that her form was as correct for the animators as I could make it.
Here they are played in sequence from the animatic:

All boards drawn in Flash. The first and last boards in the sequence are cribbed from my wife's shots for continuity. There's tons more boards from the production over at her blog as well. Check it out!
