Today I went to my first life drawing class at my new community college. Witness my feeble attempts to draw what is in front of me. It nearly wracked my brain, but that's probably just a sign of art...
Thanks again for everybody's advice. You have given me some very valuable pointers, what to focus myself on.
I'm still reading up on those underpaintings. It looks very similar to a technique a...
Oil really is a lot of fun ... even more now that my colors aren't turning green when I mix red and blue. ;)
The desaturating effect always amazes me, but I still have a hard time...
It's an old thread, I know, but I want to say thank you anyway. :)
I'm setting up a curriculum for myself and your posts and explanations offer a great deal of wisdom, you'd normally need personal...
You got me there, I'm afraid. But hey, I discovered that humans have lower eyelids just before Christmas. ;)
Thanks for your advice, form and lighting just ranked up on my todo list. Is there...
LOL ... I had to google that, but it fits ;)
Is this ... is this Were-CORN? O.o Soo incredibly awesome!
The dragons are cute, too, especially the expression of Number 5.
I'm painting on a set of sketch cards to test the oil paints I picked up last week. The paints themselves are awesome, miles away from the cheep discounter stuff I've been using...
That's the spirit ;) If Rhubix had that time machine working, I would go back and start to study earlier, too.
Anyway, there is a lot of passion and imagination in your pictures. Don't let anybody...
I didn't read the Loomis books, but the schematic heads are looking pretty cool. The skulls are a bit wonky in some places.
Maybe you can get yourself a little plastic skull (the...
Me again. I have the weekend off to draw and I'm preparing a bunch of sketchcards. Each represents a character from my book - references were photos from actors I used as stand-ins during writing. ...
I dug up a thread about a 100 heads assignment and figured it couldn't hurt to try. These are some of my favorites out of the first quarter, all done after photos (i.e. screen caps)....
Nice one. I like the determination in her face with the slightly raised chin and the set lips.
Some finished drawings from last year.
These are sketchcards, done for a variety of card trades.
Me dabbling with various styles to find a good fit for a comic....
So, let's fill this sketchbook with some pictures ... here are several I did during 2011 in rough chronological order:
These were done in museums from actual sculptures. (I never realised just how...
Nice one again, especially the elephant. The fruit bowl looks a bit skewed to the side.
I'll have to pick up that famous drawing course again, too. They help a lot to just see what is there...
Great work, so many variations and creativity. I totally dig the easter bunny!
Truely awesome studies, Miles.
Plus I like the dynamics of your sketch - I'm looking forward to more wips of this one.
Interesting indeed, thank you.
In my opinion it's high time they release an edition of this. It is a bit ridiculous, that it can be bought around the world, but not in Germany.
... Though the...
Just don't give up and keep it coming!
So you started only a year ago and took a longer break within that time, too? You're making me jealous - The boat and the mailbox in the previous post are...
Aahh ... so much suspense. ;)
In that case I'll need to try all of them until I've found something
Argh ... Why?! :sadcheerleader:
This thread totally made my day! I love you guys.
Great work here. I love the animal studies, especially the bat wings and goat horns.
Could you post some WIP on those? Just curious on your process.
This is probably a noob question, but since it's all about the motion and core structure, is there a difference between gesture drawing from life, photos or cartoons/drawings?
Thanks so much for this!
I've been experimenting with marker brushes and was never really happy with them. Step 8 is the real life saver in this tutorial!
