and miles to go before i sleep

mostly an inspiration + art blog but also I like video games, anime, and a lot of other things.
i mostly go by zim but some people call me grim or king so any of those are fine.
because of tumblr's search system, if you need to tag me in a post, you gotta tag it without the hyphen! so instead of tagging it "sir-grimmington", tag it "sir grimmington".

Time for my annual playthrough of Psychonauts! This time I’m playing the steam version I got on impulse two years ago. 
…I don’t even have clairvoyance yet.

SHINTARO OHATA

Born in Hiroshima, 1975.
Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.

Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata (previously) currently has two new sculptural paintings on view at Mizuma Gallery in Singapore. Ohata places vibrantly painted figurative sculptures in the foreground of similarly styled paintings that when viewed directly appear to be a single artwork. In some sense it appears as though the figures have broken free from the canvas. These artworks, along with several of his other paintings, join works by Yoddogawa Technique, Enpei Ito, Osamu Watanabe, and Akira Yoshida, for the Sweet Paradox show that runs through August 10th

Atomic Robo and Nikola Tesla
A living automated machine built by Nikola Tesla in the 1920’s, Atomic Robo is a rare breed of robot. The only one of his kind, he was raised more like a child than a machine by Tesla. Like his ‘father,’ Robo is a scientist at heart, though he’s quite the adventurer as well. He’s been in wars, to Mars, and defeated a being that existed outside the known universe. He has founded Tesladyne Industries, an organization that is primarily dedicated to progressing science in radical new directions, but somehow has also become his world’s best line of defense against strange and terrible threats.

You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

 Scribble it down

start to put on features

fix stuff

put on more stuff

image

fix stuff again

image

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

it’s nice to see how others do stuff like this, everyone is different but there’s something to learn from everybody!
