My name is Andrew Jones (norly. It is) And googling my own name =WOWZERS I need to learn how to do that. So, lifelong doodler here has decided to step it up and learn how to draw. And... here be some draws. These are all from references, practicing my anatomy with Andrew Loomis as well, not really in these though. My line quality is crap, did these pretty fast in OpenCanvas because i cant sketch for anything in Painter, and didn't refine them down. the color on one of em is totally Meh but I was just giving it a shot... so yeah. Doing a bunch of the assignments from Seedling (thank you, oh goddess of seeds) which will be posted eventually.. and just going to throw my doodles in here. I'm a totally over-energetic looneytoon, so thanks for putting up with me an visiting or not, whatever you decide!
Oh yeah. faces and hands are awful. Gotta work on those.
First attempt at CHOW this week, doesnt look young enough so gonna start all over.
Here is try two, done in Open Canvas... still need to work on that line quality. Think i should get a new tablet, this Bamboo thing was nice to see if i liked it, but the sensitivity is suck. So... CHOW - pre-sacrifice aztec kiddo +teddy bare.
my left handzor. Something looks funny, maybe the bottom of the palm isn't far enough down...
anyway, tried my hand at coloring in Painter. Layer set to Gel, used pastels. Want to learn how to have more hard visible strokes, any tips anyone? on anything?
Tried my hand. Unintentional, re-read it and made myself laugh.
For the woman up top her neck is too long and you seem to have difficulty telling where her neck, back, and shoulder meet and the shape it forms. You should see her neck angle in to her clavicle, but you should also see the woman's back in that pose, and where the neck connects to that. The woman's back is what will connect to make the top contour line of her shoulder. Anatomy is not my forte though so don't take my comments as gospel.
The length of one's palm should be about the same as its width so your palm is too long here. Where your fingers connect to your palm is a gentle arc, not a straight line.
A general tip is to use reference lines in your drawings so that you can double check proportions. For example, maybe the tip of your thumb aligns with a joint in one of your other fingers. You would then make sure those two lined up in your drawing.
Other than that I would say look at some anatomy books There are links to free ones here and books should help to show you how to depict the forms you see.
Thanks for the Crits Hart, been lookin at some loomis PDF's and they are great.
Here, goofin around trying to get away from a sketch and just paint stuff. doesnt look great, but was fun. Need to learn how to use smaller brushstrokes for more realism. The fog was a bad idea.
