Taught By A Pro - The Bancroft Method
Boy have I been away for a while...well, not a real long time. But a week can seem like forever. I'm drawing at Free Comic Book Day at Carol and John's Comic Shop and wanted to upgrade my skills. I really struggle with drawing girls and thought it was time for some serious tutorial. Luckily, the website www.taughtbyapro.com is a seriously affordable option with a bunch of industry pros. I already enjoyed Tom Bancroft's "Animation Mentor" book and thought I would give his courses a chance. I'm not sure exactly what it was that he said, but seeing him break down the process and combining it with what I already knew seemed to help.
I did some quick sketches to try it out and am happy with the results. I still want to work more on my faces and try some different techniques for eyes, but I think I'm getting there. I highly recommend his videos and books.
