I already gave you some comments at the other forum, but I'll also add that you shouldn't worry too much if no one comments. Keep posting your best efforts and be gracious. If people like you (and I think they will), they'll post eventually.
I liked some and disk liked other parts. What I think that needs improvement is the arm and knee joints, their movement is odd because it looks as if they are folding on themselves. The body is OK, but there is two times when it seems to bend to and extremes, at 0:09 and 0:13. The part I like was head movement with out a face. I could see where the blank face would be looking by the chest changing directions and being covered up.
This work is quite experimental... the look I'm going for is 'rubbery' with exaggerated movement. The figure is made entirely of strokes (only) and is meant to be suggestive and illusionary rather than realistic.
yeah! neat - but I have to agree with Dale about some parts of the work - however the principle is great. I understand what you're saying about "suggestive" more than "realistic" - and I've seen some wonderful "rubbery arms" that defy any realistic human anatomy ... so maybe it's the transition between "realistic looking" (e.g. 'normal' limb length / joint) and "illusion" (lengths / joints changing) that's a bit bumpy / unexpected?
In any case you've inspired me to try more "stroke only" work. A while back on the other forum someone asked about "how do you draw eyes" - my reply was "could be anything from single stroke to more complicated.."
Per a request from my sister I will be making a longer, very stylized, modified version. (She says it makes her feel serene.) This simple style provokes imagination.
Approximately 4+ minutes which is a lot of point pushing... will post a link when done. I'm doing straight ahead animation without 'actions' which would make it easier but I would lose some flexibility. I find I go back repeatedly to tweak bits here and there.
I have not seen much on the Forums on this manner of stroke work. I think this concept could be developed artistically quite a bit more. Fantasia comes to mind.
