Fumble: I will try. but I fear that this would kinda slow me down, thats why i havent really put any effort into that. And i wanna feel what Im drawing and those lines help me to grasp the object, like touching it or smth. thanks anyway.
Gonna take a page out of your book and draw more with concept and analysis in mind. Although, at least for me, I do sometimes learn things I otherwise wouldn't have learned had I not spent a prolonged amount of time on it (as opposed to a quick gesture).
metalclay: Yes, this may differ from person to person. The other question is, how do we define learning? Is learning when you start to understand the subject to the degree that youre able to draw it out of your mind? or is it smth like learning in order to be able to draw things from reference convincingly?(which is often also quite hard).
No matter what, I like switching my approaches to drawing sometimes. I try to find that middle-way between fast gestural drawing and longer studies (spending more time on one drawing). Because, as you already said, fast gestural stuff isnt the only answer to everything Ive noticed that too
this was me doing some life drawing. It was kinda based on gestural drawing where you have only like 2 or 3 minutes for each pose. Heck, this is harder than it looks! But Ill keep it up, look where Ill end up with it.
modelled drawing in ink...but done digitally.
after some resistance ive finally figured out the advantages of working digitally.
Im still not at color tho. Ive "painted" a lill bit, but its really not worth showing, but Im starting to understand how painting works. Even tho, drawing is still more fun to me. Attachment 764909
You have a lot of good work in your thread. I'm particularly fond of the way you draw animals, and the classic 1940's cartoony style you have.
Not much in the way of suggestions, other than to try some Vilppu (as you suggested yourself in my thread) and see if that doesn't give you a different perspective on some things. It certainly won't hurt
p sage: Thank you. I certainly will, I think his animal drawing manual is very valuable. Coming soon!
Working on some basic head construction. Still dont really have them internatlized. Im trying and working my way "upwards". I drew hogarths stuff this morning and this is, what I came up with now. Attachment 779592
