Academy of Art Character and Creature Design Notes: Model Sheets 101-Part 1

Academy of Art Character and Creature Design Notes: Model Sheets 101-Part 1 | Drawing References and Resources | Scoop.it

As my students are hard at work on their final projects- final line turnaround model sheet and an expression model sheet- I thought that now might be a good time to take a quick tour of the various types of model sheets that are used in animation. For the time being I'm mostly using from Disney Feature Animation, but I'll try to vary them more in the near future.

Cristina Gevorgyan's insight:

In the case of a character like The Beast, unique anatomy requires unique reference for artists working on the Beast team. An Anatomical Study Model Sheet can give animators a better idea of the structure that exist under all that hair.

Drawing the Proportions of the Human Body | Artist's Network

Drawing the Proportions of the Human Body | Artist's Network | Drawing References and Resources | Scoop.it

A 7½-head figure, in which the length of the head serves as a basic unit of measurement, is the standard of proportions used in most realist schools and the one I taught my students in Florence. It’s important to keep in mind that the bodies of 99 percent of the world’s population don’t follow these rules; we all come somewhere close. Most adults are approximately 7 to 7½ heads high. In comparison, a toddler is approximately 4 heads high.
