Never draw cartoon bats when you are drunk, and had Fish and Chips.
hey, flash! wow, it's really cool that you are so divers in your practises. like, you do completely different things next to each other. as a result, your work can really jump around from on things to the other, but thats fine, as long as you can bring it together in the end.
on being back, yes it's great to be back. recovering from a wrist injury so taking it slow and limiting drawing to one-hour intervals. that should help :p Anyway, it is great to at least find a few friends still out here. (a lot of people have fallen away, yet again. why does this happen? is not drawing an affliction caught for life? I thought it was :p)
Thanks for the link flashback - I have that guy's Drawn to life books- I never manage to read the whole thing though - just chunks in pieces. Maybe I should start bringing one on the train with me! but they're heavy >.< need a digital version!
Keep up those studies! They're good for you
I'm becoming a bit more comfortable with drawing gestures, I always tend to think that I miss that emotional factor in the gestures. I need to work on emotions, and cut down on lines, so it's easier to translate the sketches.
hey flash! good sketching there!
hmm.. let see. well, I think maybe a good idea would be to choose a point of focus. this could be how to represent 3d shapes on paper, or give extra attention to getting relative proportions just right. or maybe getting a gesture to read well. whatever you pick, stay with that through your sketches for at least that 1 session, and then you can choose a different point of focus next time. I like to do that, and it definitevely gives me the feeling I learn more from the exercise!
ah great! nothing like dynamic poses. these are nice, but you do end up a bit with messy silouettes sometimes. there's a few techniques that are usually implied. my favourite is using lines to show the positions of the limbs, and only later (if you have time) fill in the volumes only after. I think it would work well for you.
