His advice was good stuff, so 2nding that.Hey Vablo! Did exactly as you said and started value studies, here is one.
Here's something that pretty much blew my mind - Studies can look like absolute crap and still be successful. It's about learning- not making pretty. If your doing a value study, let the face look like crap. (Unless it's a value study of the face....)IVE NEVER HAD SUCH ISSUES TRYING TO GET FACE RIGHT IN MY LIFE I ENDED UP MAKING A ROUGH ONE UP.
Second face happened very quickly and wasnt an issue at all dno what was up with the first one.
Time spent mucking around fixing stuff, isn't time learning new stuff. Save fixing for illustrations or show pieces, not studies
I try to carry a sketchbook with me everywhere. You never know when you'll find a place to squeeze in a few sketches. Subway is my favorite- but there's also waiting rooms, bank lines, bus stop, sitting in the car while someone runs into the store- anywhere.Hu-ha: Hey! Ye I really want to draw figures from life more but literally not really anyone to draw, maybe start drawing my mum when shes home I want to spend the whole day life drawing. Hopefully get into art school and draw everyone all day
If there are no people draw something else. Old boots and bags are really good for practicing structure, shading, gesture - draw those. Draw the cat, draw the lamp - open the fridge and draw what's in there.
There's always something to draw.
There's lots of improvement in here since I last dropped by. Keep up the good fight
I really like the loose gestures in post 103. In my SB you mentioned my control over the form- it was combo of loose gesture (my favorite thing ever) and really boring anatomy studies that got me this far.
