I have been looking on this forum forever, time to draw instead of just looking.
These are todays gestures, so far anyway, gonna try to do some more later today, but for now i have to get to work on my exam=)
Crits & comments are ofc more then welcome=)
Mostly Loomis + some doodles.
Some more from today.
Some from this morning, bit different approach.
I see lots of gesture drawings, which is good since gesture is probably the most important thing about figure drawing. Keep doing them. And keep doing anatomy studies too, of course. It's seems you already have Loomis and Bridgman, so you'll find everything you need to know about anatomy in those books (although it's good to try different books once in awhile).
And very important: draw more from life! I think I say this in 9 out of 10 of my comments in other people's sketchbooks, but it's worth repeating.
And a hand in pencil+watercolor, from bridgman i think.
A few more gestures before bed.
headthing and a loomis, mostly worked on exam today, and I will be away from my scanner for some days=(
Welcome to CA! Pantless wanderer is right (huh, never thought I’d find myself writing that phrase), these studies you’re doing are great but it never hurts to go out and draw something sitting right in front of you. Even if it’s just your mailbox or a salt shaker you’ll find you learn something. I need to do that more too.
Thank you, I will try to do that, I'm hoping to do a digital still life each day, starting with an apple, although my first try looked more like a red blob of some sort, really don't get how to "blend" or whatever its called, well, practice makes perfect=)
Did a quick studie of bumskees apple from the digipaint thread of his, just to see if i could learn a bit of the blending technique, think i got a bit more now, next time i will try with my own apple!
Did another quicke starting with bumskees outline, this time in painter, this is kinda fun, although they dont look much like real apples, hehe. Think i need to do a longer studie on the next one, really look at colors and values.
Not sure I totally understood that, hehe, but maybe in time=p Did a banana in painter, and well, I think il stick with photoshop until I get the basic of painting, learning a new program at the same time is a bit to much i think. Anywho, ugly banana and a wip portrait from reference(http://images2.portrait-photos.org/photo/2671265.jpg):
Hello Tomat! Your line is already starting to flow better, the gestures are getting good.
Keep the studies up and you'll be rockin' in "no time"
About the face in the last post, it has quite a few issues, and I see you dont have any head studies uploaded. maybe cook a few of those up now?
Thank you. And yeah, head-studies are on their way, got a bit angry while I was drawing that face, could not seem to get anything right, the whole thing seems kinda distorted and flat, practice, practice, practice!
Some headstudies and a monster from some book, think its from one of the "art of the lord of the rings".
You are showing a good start here. Doing all that loomis stuff looks like shit but it really helps.
Reminds me I could do some more lessons on that again - thanks
Just keep it going - good luck!
Busy with my exam atm, hopefully i'l be able to do more and better studies once thats all over(about 2 weeks), in the meantime, here are some crappy loomis headstudies and some doodling, and another copy from "art of the lord of the rings"
Youve got some interesting stuff here Tomat. I think youve got a good ammount of creativity and alot of potential. Just do as many studies as you can and keep working at it and you'll do just fine.
A few drawings from life from yesterday.
Painter has a lot of nice blending Brushes, give your Painterapple another Try with them. Nice studies, i think the Loomisbooks are the best books to consider especially in the beginning. I like Bridgman very much too. Keep up, and use some reference when painting Landscape ;-)
