I've been trying to work in some more landscape studies because I have zero sense of proportion and scale. Attachment 955646
I also managed to get myself down to the Rodin Museum in Philly and did some quick studies of the sculptures. Attachment 955648
For those of you not familiar with Rodin, he is the friggin' man of sculpture along with Brancusi.
The awkward looking one is John the Baptist.
Most likely shredding a guitar solo.
And a quick selection from the never ending lunch portraits. Attachment 955652
Hey y'all, quickie portrait here-> Attachment 966771
Did this in a couple hours to kill time until the post office opened. I'm not quite satisfied with it yet but I'll have more time to work with it a bit more later.
PS: Tomorrow is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Go get some comics without paying money.
A few figure studies this week. Since the semester ended I can put a little more time into these ones. I've been keeping busy with sparse bits of freelance work. No complaints here! Gonna get back to the grindstone soon.
lookin' good. i recommend paying careful attention to proportions when you do these longer studies. maybe try doing a simple block-in of the model and his/her proportions before you get into the detail. also, try and draw the light/shadow shapes before you put tone down and keep the values simple. squinting helps with this. just keep chipping away at it. i can see you've improved.
I definitely agree with the previous poster about blocking things in roughly first, though. On your left figure, first image in your last post, for example, the legs are a little short proportionally, and that's a lot easier to change when you're not already locked in. Don't be afraid to change around the bigger forms before you work your way to the details!
Here's some of today's work. I was keeping proportion in mind with these and roughly blocking in stuff helped epically, but I'm sure there are still mistakes.
The two less developed ones are 1 hour poses, the one on the far left I took about 3 hours with. . .
This is pretty much the reason I didn't update this in a while. SO, go check it out. My gallery won't be quite that deserted after I get more slides taken of my more recent stuff.
