Look who's arrived! :D

Welcome aboard, Mr. Chiu! Great to see you here. :) I have a request, which I ask of everyone here...in the interest of standardization, might I change the name of your thread to "Anatomy Thread of Bobby Chiu *or* digital_bobert?" This way I can keep things better organized, and people can easily run a search for all of the Anatomy Threads. :)

Great to see these digital Gesture Drawings! It's funny, because I remember a cartoon from back in the day by Wiley showing artists gathered around a model, taking pencil measurements of the artsy fartsy kind behind their monitors ~ the unstated punchline of the cartoon being, "as if that would ever happen!" Lol...:)

At any rate, good to have you aboard, and looking forward to your next posts! :thumbsup:

Cheers, :)

it's been a while since I posted on this thread but better late than never.

I've recently accepted the challenge of teaching lifedrawing to the 3rd year animators at Sheridan College and it's been a fantastic ride.

I wish I could teach them for the whole school year but unfortunately I'll only have them for 4 1/2 weeks. Next semester they will be taught by one of my former teachers Gerry Zeldin. It's ok though because I know they'll be in good hands and also 2007 I'll be doing a lot of travelling around North America (Calgary, LA, SF, SD, Chicago, Detroit, Philly) so I wouldn't have time anyways.

Still though... I wish I could have had these students from the beginning of the semester because there's just so much I want to tell them and so little time. Not just about teaching them to draw but how to present themselves as artists.

I feel it's going good though. I feel like I'm really starting to reach a lot of them and I can already start to see improvements in their work. It's weird though because that's just not enough for me. I want to see everybody noticably improve, not just the majority of the students. It's tough because I can see the potential in everyone of these students but many of them don't. I wish I could just take them back into the past when I was a student and show them that all it takes is some passion for learning and some hard work. I still have a few weeks left with them so I still have time. It's been a blast so far! Can't wait to see all their portfolios in two weeks.

Here's some demos I did in class yesterday. I added a bit of tone in photoshop.

I agree with Glenn :D
Thanks for sharing

love the first one...
Oh... I'm gonna recommend your video sketchbook to my classmates... can you believe hardly any of them actually draws outside class hours? I think your vids might help them a lot...

Thanks and take care

I first came across your work when I perchanced upon a copy of the magazine ImagineFX in my local supermarket last month - and I was blown away by your piece of a bunny eating monster (it made me buy the magazine!). Now it seems like I've chanced upon a real treasure trove of great stuff by you here!

I'm really loving your work, nice to see you sharing your talent by giving lessons too. Those sketches are gorgeous.

More more more! I hope to reach this level someday. Your avatar girl is kind of creapy though. Very interesting.

I just watched the Samuria Head Pt1. How did you paint in that small canvas, and what you drew, transfered to the other? It seems like a great technique when painting something quick.

Great movies, thanks for sharing!

Edit: I have just been looking at your website and been pondering whether to buy some of your books. It mentions tutorials. Will these be indepth tutorials (explaining certain techniques ets)? I'm also confused whether these are magazines or hardback books. Also it says shipping worldwide is free, so as a UK resident, I don't pay for any postage?

-really looking forward to see how this sketch-book will progress.
your "subway" sketches have been a great inspiration and motivator for me.
