I've always been doing line work. But I want to be able to paint without using lines, rather by using shapes so that the finished product has no lines. I always see these works in progress that start with general shapes and work into more detail, but I'm still rather stumped on the process.
So what you see here is my attempt at starting with big strokes and blocking in shapes to get an overall composition and basic values.
Is this at all going how it's supposed to? What do I do from here? Should i have done something different?
How do you guys start blocking in shapes and defining muscles etc. without sketching anything out?
