This particular project required us to create a character based on words we wroted down and threw in a hat.. mine happened to be a annoyed possum pro wrestler. We then completed a turn around sheet and an action sheet. My teacher liked my action sheet.. When creating these drawings its always a good idea to work around a strong line of action. Also thinking in terms of a strong sillouette is key to producing good action poses..
As far as the turnaround goes you have to be anal and exact on the model. Thats why you need to draw guidelines horizontally across the page to insure that the body parts match up on the same line. Otherwise its very sloppy and inconsistant.. The last pose I had a little trouble with the tail but i feel good about the sheet as a whole
