SKETCHBOOK: CLONE WARS DAY 1

CURRENT SOUNDTRACK: Nowt.

Some initial sketches of Clone Wars styled Anakin. Not saying what for.

People sometimes assume that drawing in an established animated style is easier than drawing realistically. Well, its not. Unlike drawing realistically, there is nowhere to hide bad drawing. Every line has to be exact, accurate, and clear. If you're off even slightly, it throws the whole thing off, and everyone can see it immediately.

Animated styles also have a certain rhythm to the body language, embodying the energy of the show. And within that, each character will have their own body language and rhythm. Once you have that down, the rest falls into place.

I'll be working on these all week and post the results each night here.
