Little did I know I would discover a newfound love of martial arts movies. Not that I didn't like them before, but it's almost as if I wasn't ready for them. I cite animation as my major influence in drawing and you really can't get more animated than the choreographic tangle of limbs and flying fists showcased in these types of movies. The fights are both elegant and brutal, humorous and cringeworthy. Granted, another great source to look at for pose and gesture is ballet. However, I find ballet sorely lacking in rooftop chases, rope darts, and stuntwork involving elephants. I'm picky like that.
Quick little sketch of atomic robo while I wait for my coffee to kick in this morning.
Pardon the neglect that has fallen upon the blog. I feel like I forgot to feed the goldfish or somethin'. I'm working away on making things for the new website, so it won't be long now! Eventually, I'll be switching to a new blog there, leaving this one for digiarcheologists to find in the year 3020.
