Sketchdroppings 2

Its big...
For the top 2 pages, I started studying kanji by drawing what the subject matter is. The top left is the kanji 景'kei' which means scenery. Used with other kanji it becomes other words like 背景'haikei' - background and 風景'fuukei'- landscape.
On the upper right is 軍'gun' which is used with anything military related. I really should keep that up. It helps me remember. Been lazing it with Japanese these days.

I was all hype to do some gestures after seeing 'Chocolate' and did the ones on the bottom right. 'SCOOPS!!'

*sigh* my gallery is turning white again. I really need to do more colour stuffs. :pee:

V. cool definitely liking all the enviro pieces. Be great to see some of your character design wok in those sort of settings. Give them a great sense of context.

And yes.... more chocolate please ;P

Wow! For some reason, I'd forgotten about drawing little sketches of action and such (your bottom right page). The poses are great, and I've learned it would probably be better to flesh it out in thumb rather than in the fullsize draft itself. Thanks!

Im starting to find that just reading something Im interested in like manga or artbooks and translation the kanji helps me remember it more. Learning kanji with out putting it to use(by constantly seeing thru reading or writing) is like studying anatomy without using it for characters and what not.
I need to start using PIXIV(Japanese deviantart like site) more! You should join too!

oh snaps man! yeah definitely Man! I've been waiting and looking for the Japanese type DA! But yeah now I'm beginning to write more as well to my host family and friends. And definitely when I'm reading manga or different synopsis on things I like the Kanji begin to stick with you and your confidence begins to build!

Also man have you heard of Cradle Orchestra? Check em out if you get a chance, also at that Shad too!

Alright man just want to say man thanks again for just helping me out and being an inspiration to me! Alright then man. Peace!
