    Pearscrow's Doodledo'h

    Trying to add things. I only have a webcam *shakes head* I'm sorry for the major inconvenience. Hoping to get my scanner working. Thank you for your time.
    Also, most of the figures are drawn from posemaniacs.com in 90-second doodles.

    Edit: First picture is preview for thread, actual picture made a year or so from first post.

    Okay, I've been trying to do something for this Daily Sketch [1920's-ERA MAN SEES SOMETHING NIGHTMARISH BY THE STREET LAMP]

    Well, I figured out quickly enough that I couldn't even do the buidling...not really a dynamic view, but If I can't do this then going onto something from an extreme point of view might not help me learn anything at all - that is if I don't know how to do it plainly first...right?

    Anyhow, it's supposed to be like it is in 3...not an above sort of view like the others. I was having my friend help me with it over MSN; She said it might be that you wouldn't see the back of the alley, so I tried in 6, but it just looks wide and blocky. I'm trying to make the alley very long and slender.

    -Edit- Is it because 6 is way too short, or too wide?

    1st picture is from yesterday; 2nd is from today.
    Again sorry for quality, and these were also drawn from the posemaniacs 90-second post/gesture drawing practice...

    -Edit- Hey, does anyone know what that muscle is below your elbow? It like tightenes and seems to widen when you strain it...okay thank you.

    The anatomy in your gesture drawings seem quite off.
    In all of them the head is too small.
    It is great that you are doing them.
    Try to look at some books that break down basic anatomy
    so you can catch your self when it happens in the future.

    Mm, they are all quite horrendous I know. I'm fixing to gorge myself on this to see if it'll help me improve.

    Thank you.

    And yes, I believe that's it! Thank you too Dave.

    Mmkay...so here is something from The Human Machine The Anatomical Structure & Mechanism Of The Human Body by George B. Bridgman, or the first book from the thread in the link in my above post...

    -Edit- Also some posemaniacs practice from a second ago. :3 I tried to make the heads a bit bigger but they feel too big to me. :/ Not to mention that everything else is messed up about the body, but I'm going to try to work hard on that.

    Are you puting down any basic shapes, underlying structure, guidelines in your figure drawings?

    With the images, I can't tell, BUT I'm guessing no. Get some of the basic large areas and forms correct first and the rest will work alot better.

    Okay, I tried to do what you said though I'm not sure if I really understand. I think they're marginally better but maybe that's just me playing tricks on myself. Also finished each one very very quickly...so thank you. :3 I'll at least be able to practice more with less time now. Also the one to the far right is very messed up. XD

    Can't seem to get this right...

    Oh well. Trying to do this. It's small but I just want to get it right. :/ Made in Ambereh.
    Also thought I'd add something I did in MSpaint a while ago...it's my friend. :'3
    -Edit- Third is just me playing around with color in Ambereh.

    Hi Pearscrow, wecome to CA.
    First off, SEVANS made a comment about creating an underlying structure. I just want to clarify and explain what it is, because it is the most important step. Before you start drawing the details and the bulk of your figure, start with something simplier, like lines and basic geometric shapes to create a skeleton. For example: A circle for the head or a box shape for the torso.
    When you have created this skeleton, you'll now be able to add details easialy. This technique will help with proportions and will help you see the figure in three dementions. I promise, when you learn this, you'll see fast improvments.
    Secondly, take your time with these sketches. You will improve faster if you take it slow, spend some time to fix errors, add details and shading.
    Thirdly, just have some fun!

    Gah

    Gah, I'm really sorry that I can't scan anything (freakin' Vista) and I hope to go to my Dad's work sometime to scan in my sketches of unsuspecting classmates and portraits. I wish I could show you guys.

    Anyway, um, how exactly do you do a portrait? A good one, I mean...like, you know, the kind that captures who they are and their personality, I want to know how to do that.

    Thanks Ewing, your advice is so useful for when I sketch in real life! You have no idea. But I'm still a little stuck on people I'm afraid.
