Care: Thanks! I'm going to do some Hampton studies tonight.
Some thumbs I've been doing over the last few days. Varied from 20 mins to an hour or more depending on how active I was on Skype. I need to stop multitasking.
Kami: Thanks man. Actually I slacked off with TNWTD so after reading your comment I got back into it. Thanks for the crit!
TNWTD. I stopped in the middle of a few gestures from schedule 3 day A. Oops. So today I finished that day. TNWTD had done tonnes to improve my art, I don't want to give up on it now.
This isn't everything I did today, just most of it.
Thanks Spot. I've got a portfolio piece idea and I'm not sure whether to do it in watercolour or coloured pencils. Will probably do both and put the best one in my folio.
Butterfly, practice with colour pencils. Looks better in person. I'm really enjoying colour pencils. From photo ref.
great improvement, keep up the good works
So on Saturday, when I was out on the sketch crawl, I had a water leak in my bag (didn't properly screw the lid on my water bottle). Thankfully my sketchbook was largely undamaged, but the water buckled the paper so now whenever I scan something you get those ugly grey patches because no matter how hard I try, I can't properly flatten the page in the scanner. Aaargh. So yeah, sorry for crappy scanner quality.
This isn't everything I've done recently -- the attachment manager's throwing a tantrum again, so this is all that's managed to upload without errors.
I like those studies
Crits and help of any kind are more than welcome!
Yay head studies! *claps hands* just keep hammering away at them, what I also find that helps is that in my idle times drawing boxes and a variety of ellipses really help with construction try to take it further as well, draw cylinders combine em with spheres then attach it to a cube etc. it will really help you think in 3D. Right now with the head studies you are JUST beginning the fun of it, right now you are just tackling 2 forms, the sphere(cranium) and the form which is extruded out of it(mandible), later on you would deal with attaching extra forms like denture spheres, the brow wedge(as I like to call it), the keystone then the nose box piece which attaches to it and the two eye spheres then after that the forms have to be developed and basically carved in to get your final features. so learn to draw the basic forms well and connect them properly and then you'll have these studies in the bag. I know I keep repeating myself but so far this is what helped me the most along with gestures and perspective which are technically tools to draw such forms well.
SUWEET! so I guess you are as good as in? As soon as seeing your avatar change I knew you were going to post! Well just keep it coming with them gestures, I am guessing those tiny figure thumbs were suppose to teach you shape recognition for figures so that's a plus . Have you tried this exercise where you try to draw gestures with straight lines only?
