Hi All this is my new SB Hope to get new critics and finally keep it updated !
Chimp drawing, Left hand for this one, lot of fun .
This was done based on a sculpture from zbrush central, doesn´t remenber the artist, but it was just a quick study anyway. Lot´s of love for The unknow artist (If you see this send me an email to give your credits).
African woman- Quicksketch, from reference.
This is a character that I´ll model soon, the idea is that he´s a giant calm and relaxed frog monk.
Women study, from reference.
Another study, quick face value, from reference.
Head study, photo reference for this one.
Concept design for my monster tutorial, from imagination.
Side view of the monster to guide the basemesh modeling, the tutorial is avaible at 3dtao.wordpress.com that´s it !
Critics and tips are welcome, other thing if you can suggest photos or themes for me to study, (inspirational stuff too ) please put here, messages at random are welcome as well.Wish you luck, wish me luck, ok?.
I like the monkey study the best, there are not that many criss-crossing there. Try to keep your shading clean, follow the forms with your lines while you shade, because it will look messy otherwise. Also on the monster head you did that well. It's also a good idea to look at stuff, and separate the light, middle and dark areas first, and put them down quickly, so you don't do the stuff you did on the last picture, that there's really no contrast there. You can keep it simple, and still show forms with simple shading.
Sarkys- I just followed your advice, I will draw his complete book, he´s really good in breaking the shapes, thanks !
hungryan- this week I´ll try to learn more about values and contrast, thanks for the advice..
Well this are some doodles fromt this week, most of it are from bridgiman´s books and some from photos or imagination. another resource that I discovered this week was this website http://www.posemaniacs.com/ , pretty good to train gesture drawing and learn some poses, one friend of mine that gave me this link (Arthur parreira) and now I´m sharing with everyone.. see you.. critics, comments and randon are welcome !
Well here there are studies of this week, I decided that I´ll focus on Bridgman´s book, taking some breaks to sketch from photos, life and mind, i prefer to aim only at structure first after I have some confidence I´ll move to shading and painting. I did some silhouette study as well.. cya!
Hi there! Nice start, keep up with those studies. I like your frog monk character and the drawing of the old man.
One critique for a possible mistake I've noticed. This monster's ear seems to be too far back on his head. It doesn't come across as intended, that's why I'm pointing it out.
Another thing I noticed, in this drawing you defintly killed proportion. I wonder if you were trying to fit those legs in when you didn't reserve enough space for them? It pays off if you are extra carefull when doing studies from books, because that's when you will be integrating necessary knowledge. It might be better to do less if you find them tiring, but do them well.
The studies are looking nice. A good way to check what you've learned from your anatomy studies is to perhaps draw from your imagination and try apply what you learned in your studies to your own work.
Leonor- Thanks for your feedback, I will take special care to proportions and do things calmly and with more time.
Bendragon- Ok, I´ll do that, more from mind
JeanShade- Thanks, I get the idea, I´ll separate long therm studies and quick studies to get more results, and will work more from mind too, thank you !
Now it´s been a long time that I did not post anything, so here it is, mainly bridgman´s studies and one page from mind, I hope to post more often or at least once a week, thank you all for the feedback and I will keep drawing.. see you.
