My process for all the paisley armchair pictures. I sometimes forgot to save iterations regularly, so they’re a bit uneven (especially the blue one).

Sorted in the order they were made.

Hey guys, the Artist of the Week is contemporary character designer Nico Marlet.

Nico Marlet is a French born concept artist working in the American animation industry. He graduated from CFT Gobelins in France, and moved to California, in the United States, to work at Dreamworks Animation Studio in 1990. He worked for several years as an animator, before switching to the character design team in 1995 for the production of “Balto.” Since then Marlet has worked mostly on character design for Dreamworks’s films.

His concept art for “Kung Fu Panda” and “How to Train Your Dragon” is his most popular around the world. They feature his impeccable shape design, loose, gestural quality, and trademark sepia colored pencil and markers. I think Marlet’s recent popularity is significantly due to how lively his drawings are. His practice as an animator is highly evident in his concept designs, which are full of movement and expression.

May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.

I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes. 

mmyep. it’s such a self-fulfilling prophecy- like, if you loudly declare at the slightest opportunity that any woman who likes anything you like is an inferior fan and should fuck off, of course you’re not going to know any women who share your interests. i have no time for that bullshit.

I just discovered my favourite entry on the DC Wiki. I didn’t know they were a TEAM! And with such a catchy name! I have two questions, though:
1. Why haven’t Superman and Robin joined?
2. Who the hell is Queen Bee?

Hey, I recently signed up for the Watts Atelier Online School! Mostly because I've been in awe of your studies you've posted! In addition, you also introduced me to Jeff's (and the other instructors') YouTube streams/workshops! While I am slowly working through the phases, are there any tips you could give/point me to some good anatomy books to use in tandem with the online school? Right now I just have the Michael Hampton Figure drawing book and the Andrew Loomis books.

Yesssss Watts is really good! I’ve already clocked around 600+ hours of figure drawing at the school. Very very anatomy heavy but once you get through learning that it makes things much easier on you especially trying to invent your own figures from the top of your head.

Bridgman is good if you want to get into volume and the clumping of muscles into wedges that are easier to design perspective around.

Rad went to Watts so if your worried about learning and it wrecking your style. Not saying you believe this but for anyone else, that’s a really silly concern but it crops up in conversation a lot when I talk to artists. Learning only strengthens what you know and gives you more freedom on the canvas.
