    Rognvaldr's Journey of Knowledge

    I'm finally starting some heavy anatomy studies, something I was fairly ignorant to learn for a good amount of time mostly because I thought it would be boring. Thus far I've been enjoying what I've been learning and in a short time learned quite a bit already. I hope to document my progress and possibly gain some pointers or criticisms along the way.

    I kind of feel like I've littered this thread with some junk so hopefully I will start getting some serious stuff in here soon. Please ignore the first bunch of posts and go down to the bottom. I'd remove the other images but I'd like to keep them just to show my progress.

    I plan to update every day so hopefully I can keep myself to that.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Please skip to the bottom, my old stuff is garish!

    Cool stuff, some of the figure and facial proportions are a little off, but I like your loose sketches best. What are those silhouettes? They remind me of indian shadow puppets, really interesting. Good start, keep posting.

    Some newer drawings I've done in the past week. Definately need to produce more drawings.

    The devil is draw from an image of a sculpture by member Art Farmer









    A handful of new sketches. Surely nothing too impressive but meh figured it would be constructive to post them.

    Some 3D thing I've been working on

    Feel free to give me any sort of critiques.

    During school we had some life drawing classes but they were fairly basic, they basically just told us to draw the person in front of is with various exercises never teaching us how to understand what's really going on. Lately I've been watching some videos on how to draw anatomy. I figure I need to get back into trying to understand the body in this way as I know it's a lot more important than my reluctant, lazy mind keeps telling me.

    I drew two heads and some noses with some reference previous to watching the video. This is mostly just my notes but I'm quite proud of how much more I understand the human skull now after only about an hour. The lower skull I drew as notes along with the video, the upper skull was one I did about 20 minutes afterward on my own.


    One of my new years resolutions is to study and practice drawing every day, so good start to the new year so far!

    I'm hoping to post all my progress. Hopefully I can actually keep it up.

    I decided to try and use this method to draw a face and this is what I came up with, I pasted the head reference over top of it to show how close I was in terms of proportion. I almost got it, some areas are off a good amount and it doesn't really look like her but I think it turned out well. Her eyes are too far apart, the ridge on her nose isn't high enough and her jaw isn't wide enough.


    Much better proportions than I usually draw though.

    Today I did some more studies of the mouth area but I didn't think anything was worth posting. I also drew this, It's a redesign of an old character I made.

    Attempting to use the techniques I've learned to understand the structure of a real persons face, I chose Toshiro Mifune. It's fairly poor in terms of looking like him and the proportions are still off slightly but I'm starting to understand why shadows and lines go where a lot easier. It also helps me understand what I'm doing wrong and why things look wrong.



    Ref

    I'm going to go over it later and correct the proportions.

    Rognvaldr lays down his fresh batch of drawings onto the table disturbing a large amount of dust.





    He looks around to see nobody there, he coughs and it echoes eternally...

    I didn't like where my Cave Story drawing was going so I decided to change the pose and start over. I'll probably go back to the other pose eventually and colour it the same way as this though.



    Still very W.I.P.

    Slowly mashing thought this when I've got the time. I haven't finished a drawing this much in a long time. I'm impressed with myself lol.
