I'm going crazy because I can't find a youtube video you posted once, by Pink Floyd. It was an excellent song, and I can't remember what it was. All your old attachments died... If I could just get...
Thank you! I still draw from time to time, but I don't post often. Usually I draw a student's portrait and then give it away. I also don't post the failures anymore :)
I need to do another pastel...
The portrait of the boy is old, from maybe 2012? The caricature was for a neighbor. I drew it about a week ago.
A couple recent/semi-recent drawings. The skull is from one of Prokopenko's videos. If it looks kind of plastic, it's because it's from a 3D rendering of a skull, not the real thing. :D
He was my favorite actor... Damn...
"Thanks for all the input guys, now back to looking for photos on the net..."
Study the real thing!
Is it too cold outside? Well then, study something else, but make sure it's the real thing....
When you go to a real mountain, you can focus on different parts of it, light effects, look for formations that come toward you - anything to add a sense of depth. You also have to wrestle with the...
These two drawings are from Oct 2012, I just never uploaded them.
I hope this works, I'm having trouble with the new system. This was a gift for a colleague who just had her first baby.
Here's what I came up with for students: http://umk-javorova.blogspot.sk/2013/07/art-fundamentals.html
Keep going! If you want to be a professional artist you've got a long road ahead of you. I'd recommend drawing at least 3 hours a day every day. If you can do that, I'm curious where you'll be in a...
If you're ready to take this seriously, then post some work, and we'll take it from there.
I took Stan Prokopenko's videos and added some concepts/pictures in this blog post for my students. If you don't mind the occasional Slovak translations, it'll be helpful:...
You really think Frazetta wanted that Fibonacci spiral to end at the man's crotch? Seems accidental to me.
You can put a plumb line wherever you want, just don't move or change your line of site, or you'll get confused. Remember, just because it's in the middle up top, doesn't mean it will be at the...
Black Spot, you're my hero.
Even Loomis had a teacher who told him he should quit - that he'd never be a professional artist. Keep going, and keep drawing inspiration from art that you love.
So far as the geometric figure studies, Stanly Prokopenko just did a long series of example videos on those, and the thing to note - he used a lot less lines. For example, if you draw the legs as...
I hate to say it folks, but I'm completely swamped at work. Is there any chance someone else can take charge of this, this winter? I'd still like to take part.
The fingernail clipper is beautiful - not just accurate. You've found the reflections that make it beautiful. My only critique is that some of the lines aren't quite perfectly straight - but I only...
Last night I dreamed that I peed on a pile of my old drawings. How's that?
post your work for critique, and keep going. You have to work through the anger and doubt.
Hey, I just saw your post in the art discussion forum. From what I can see, you're on the right track. You've definitely progressed from 2005. Your new drawings have a nice sense of form and volume,...
