Abi Poses - April 2014 by The-Ez Abi Poses - April 2014 by The-Ez
Abi Drotsky from my side project, Up Since Dark:D

Sorry I've been gone, but I've spent a week working a night shift job at the emergency room of a local hospital, and lemme tell you guys, doing these drawings was what kept me sane. Staying up all night was a breeze—thank you, Internet—but seeing so many people in pain just got to me. My first night on duty, I watched two young parents find out their 10-year-old son died of septic shock. I've been having nightmares ever since.

I had to quit. I couldn't take it. :icononionfailplz: God did not give me the stomach for the medical field. :no: :faint: I did see a cool helicopter, though. So I guess there's that. :shrug:

It's good to be back. :meow: I sincerely hope all of you and your loved ones are in good health. :iconasunahugplz:

Dang! Your art is somehow reminding me why I got into animation in the first place...well, it's bringing back the feeling if anything. So great. The expressions...the personality

I don't know which I love more--her expressions, or her hair! :la:
You do the stretch and scrunch for making expressions very nicely...there's so much personality behind them! :heart:

She's so cute! You are so talented with the perspective! The third one is my favourite! XD
Also, I'm so sorry you had to go through that shock! I am pretty sure full-time doctors and nurses have stomachs of steel to be able to deal with that stuff, and I salute them. Hope you recover from your trauma soon!

Beautiful sketches, as always Ez!  Sorry to hear you had a rough time, that sounds awful.  I don't know how people do that job, but I'm thankful there are those out there that can!

Yes! It was incredible seeing the nurses and doctors work (the little I was allowed to see). It's like they switch off to the rest of the world and just become their function, if that makes sense. It was very humbling! They've got serious guts!

Thanks for the kind words! :D Always means tons when you like my work! :D

Your sense of 3d/perspective is impressive. I'm trying to learn that stuff right now. I just started and i'm nowhere near this skills. And that girl is adoreable. She looks so easy going.

Yay! More Abi!

But first...I'm sorry to hear you had such a rough time at the hospital job. :/ I want to say I understand, because I don't think I could handle all of the nerve-wracking or heart-wrenching things that could happen there. I get "traumatized" by really minor, intense situations; I can't even imagine how hard it is to deal with heavy-duty, real life, serious things like that. I'm sorry that you had to experience that, and that it's impacted you as it has. Hang in there, Ez! :hug:

...but. As for these Abi sketches.... @___@ Awesome! I love Abi's attitude and personality, and I like how it comes through in these poses. Her cute, "check me out pose" in the first sketch is...super cute. lol I love her smile, and the bright look in her eyes. I like her big smile in the next sketch as she shows-and-tells the Polaroid -- I love how there's this excited energy, almost salesperson-ing it up. :giggle:

The third might be my favorite, though. I love that determined look on her face, and the clenched fists and raised arms and energetic jumping pose. She looks so awesome! I think you captured that kind of emotion, that moment and feeling so, so perfectly with that sketch, pose, expression. The way she kinda bites her lower lip and juts out her chin a little and intense look in her eyes and how her brows are furrowed -- I love how you've shown how pumped she is to accept and face a challenge head on. So awesome!

That final sketch is adorable. Love her smile, and how having one eye closed helps sell the kinda exaggerated "oh, c'mon you!" look so well.

I don't think I've commented on many (or any?) of your Abi pics before, but I think she's a really fun character. I love the animated, lively expressions you give her! She seems so alive and awesome, and has an awesome personality.

Great job. : ) :+fav:

I'm sorry that you had a rough time with your job.  It's not always easy to see stuff like that.
I'm glad that your back.  I like these loose drawings of your character.  I need to look into your side project - Up Since Dark - I've been busy lately and have been going through my DA watch lists.

I'm so sorry you had a rough time of it.  There's no way I could work in the medical field.  I know I could do most of the work, but It would shoot my nerves.  I don't blame you even a little bit.

Nice that you had Abi to keep you company!  I swear she is the most adorable thing since kittens in a can!  :D

Oh man, I couldn't work as a medic. For one thing, I'm squeamish (used to have a boyfriend whose arm dislocated all the time, that scarred me for life) and I can't handle people being in pain. It just isn't my thing, I guess. I'm nothing like my mother, she was a nurse and a midwife. :XD: Real sorry you had to see that! It's horrible that children die so young :no: I guess it makes you think how lucky we are to be alive, eh? :shrug:

Great dynamic poses- I love the placement of her hips, and expressions are so great as always. Do you usually use soft pencils or mechanical?
