Leonor & SaiVix, Gotcha, I will do that.
Only one because I'm taking a break from drawing.
Just practicing some facial construction.
Thanks for that black and white pic of the girl, i think i'll use that later for value studies.
anyways, do more anatomy studies (like what you've been doing diligently anyways) and try to draw what you see, and now what you think you see.
You really need to look at proportion, and the width of how your making things.
Do a study, then look at the reference. Then switch back and forth from the study and the reference really fast multiple times and you will notice the differences.
This will help you notice your mistakes.
My57, Yes, I'm still working with proportions. I thought the proportions on the face were correct, but I guess not.
I had two more things, but the scanner decided not to work.
Finally fixed it.
My college had a lot of cutback in the computer department among other things. So, the prices for very thing went up. drawing classes are especially expensive.
Your stuff is certainly coming along well, some real dedication showed from all the studies your doing. I think there is some really great advice in this thread and it is well worth going back and re reading it every now and then to make sure it sinks in.
I think that one thing you may benefit from a lot is life drawing. My tutor is always telling me how nothing will improve your drawing quicker than drawing from life.
Go find a park bench, or a cafe, and just sit and draw people, buildings, cars everything! Good luck man
I can see you are at the very beginning with human anatomy, but you have the ambition to do a lot of studies even if they are not correctly each time, thats great.
What I would advise you to do is to really focus on what the books you are learning from (I guess you do) want to tell you.
A few posts before you drew the grid for the human head with all the features arranged correctly, like the eyes are at the half of the height of the head, but a bit later your faces still look off.
So I advice you to really take the time to notice what is important and then learn it by drawing it.
If you do this a lot of times and always think about what you have learned while you draw, you will be able to do this later without thinking about it.
But at the beginning just always remember of what you have learned and think about what you draw. Only if you brain got it right by thinking about it you will be able to do it without thinking about it later.
Good luck and keep on studying!
I like the last one especially.
Some of that perspective studies look simply wrong, you must pay more anention to it i guess, get a book for it they can help a ton.
I have one more sugestion also, try going crazy with your sketches i see many people failing on drawing whilst trying to keep the lines elegant and overall sketch clean. Don't be afraid to do some random strokes, they sometimes can evolve into interresting things, trust me.
Good luck on your way.
Keep it up!
Dedecation is one of the most important aspects of art.
