Default Drawing and character design tuts

Hey all.. just wanted to get some ideas of how much interest there is in drawing and character design tuts..... to add some new content to the site...

I did a very basic character design tut a while back and seem to go over very well.

If there seems to be enough interest i will see about producing a few more indepth ones.. From pencil drawing to coloring and story boards

I'm up for any kind of tutorial you want to do Kurt, they all come out good and they're a good source to learn from, and to go back to when you're stuck on something later on down the road.
Is the character design drawing going to have a front, top and side view? Just curious.

I'll see about picking up a video camera so you can see me draw with a pen instead of the tablet.

yes yes yes....

i would totally dig that.

how about a technique to stylize an image. e.g. on this site http://threedy.com/site/forum/showthread.php?t=50002
they have a stylized animal challenge, but without to be able to stylize.... well no fun at all.

something like that would be cool.

you see, i mean posting in two different threads about the same
