    Body 47

    Haven't been feeling very well, caught the flu unfortunately...

    Anyways, did these from Robert Barrett's Life Drawing book. One is in charcoal, heightened with white pencil, although I feel it didn't come out how I wanted it to.





    Body 48

    Simple turnaround of the female form, I'm really weak at turnarounds, so I'd like to practice these more.

    Referenced from Robert Barrett's Life Drawing book.





    Body 49

    Various experiments with shape for torsos and other body parts.

    Referenced from Robert Barrett's Life Drawing book.




    Body 50

    Heads from imagination.

    Just an informal colour chart, used some of my watercolours and then mixed various ones together to see how the paint behaves.

    good to see that you're doing all these studies. What are you doing the studies from of the bodies? Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life is definitely worth going all the way through to help you with construction and anatomy. Keep it up!

    Hey Jeremy

    Thank you bro, I'm doing studies of bodies from Barrett's Life Drawing book. Heads are from Loomis and Bridgman's Complete Guide, I only just started on Bridgman. Also much of the body work is also from life.

    Body 51

    Did this earlier today, master copy (partial reference and some imagination) of Jacopo da Pontormo (1494 - 1556), nude boy.

    Some other crap, trying to do Bridgman, not feeling it though.

    Body 52

    I feel really weak at drawing the female body (Brooke D.). Anyway, I mostly tried to capture the feel of the torso.



    Body 53

    From life, Brooke was resting on my bed. I tried to draw her torso and legs for the moment.

    Eagle Skeletal Profile

    A simplfied profile of an eagle's skeleton..

    This is based on the golden eagle, which is an amazingly powerful creature, it can hunt wolves, cats, and even grizzly bears would you believe it!

    Take a look at these...

    Body 54

    Heads from Bridgman's drawing guides. He draws so straight, I'm not particularly fond of his ways, anyway, trying to get into it.




    Body 55

    Some things from life, and then a bit more of Bridgman drawing studies.




    Body 56

    From reference, life and imagination. Fun stuff.

    Troll in the fog...

    Shambok wanted me to develop the concept a bit further, so here's the progress so far, just getting it cropped and prepared how I would like to take things, it was an awkward pose to begin with, so I just want to change things around before committing to anything.

    That's all I have time for tonight...

    Body 57

    Drawn from life, time limited, 2 minutes per sketch. The model is Anne-Marie.



    Body 58

    From life. The same model, Anne-Marie, drawn from different positions around a chair. A nice killer angle too, really enjoyed this.

    Hey man LOVING the still lifes, particularly the cup seems like you got the colours down even though its fairly dark

    The character stuff seems good too colours seem really desaturated though :/ I'm not sure if you're painting over greyscales but I dont think its working colours need to "pop" more but doing the still lifes will definately improve that


    oh btw see attachment

    Good stuff man, though I hope you're spending more time working on drawing than digital painting at this point (in my opinion). Digital painting is good to do all the time I think to learn to get the hang of it, though value and structure (drawing) is the backbone of all of it, so you really need to focus on getting that down. I'd recommend doing Bridgman a lot (he's helped me a lot so far, and I'm just now past the head and neck).
    As for your painting, I think more color variation would bring them to life more (cools and warms). Keep up the good work!

    Taylor - Thank you for the compliment bro! I'm glad you like the coffee cup, yip it was a pretty dark scene, set against the bottom of my table, which is pitch black (almost).

    Yeah, I see so, upon looking at the troll again, the colours are more washed out than I wanted. Nope, that was painted with colour, no value underdrawing.

    Hey, thank you for the DS sketch, it turned out so-so. =) I may get something for Christmas or whatever, probably not until the school holidays though. Thank you bro, I appreciate the comments.


    Jeremy - Thank you for the comment bro. Yip, I need to keep the drawing side up, I'll crack open the books today promise. The Bridgman studies are difficult for me, I find he draws much straighter than I'm used to, but I'm willing to persevere with him.

    Awesome, thank you for the tip, I'll think carefully about my colour variation in the next pieces.

    Thank you for the comments chaps, keep well to you both.
    Edward

    Well there's progress but not sufficient if I have to be honest... Focus on anatomy, focus on the bigger shapes, you want to draw fluid natural lines but they won't look any good without a fundamental form underneath them...

    Your faces also need a lot of work, look up some pictures and draw from them, when you get a bit more confident start drawing people in your environment, be it on the bus, your friends, whatever...

    Jeremy is right too, drawing from life should be your number 1 priority at this time, painting will come later! That doesn't mean that you can't paint of course, but the hours you spend on a painting would give you more result if you spent them on drawing and doing studies.

    The stuff in post #255 for example, it doesn't look like you had a good look at the stuff you drew... The anatomy, without wanting to sound rude or mean, is still at a pretty childish level, which is a letdown to see after 9 pages of hard work, which leads me to thinking that you're looking wrong... Have you tried reading "drawing on the right side of the brain"? I think it's a book that will help you a LOT.

    Hope to hear from you and remember, bad crits are the best crits, I'm saying this to help you not to bring you down

    Cheers

    Hey Cranberry!

    Don't be afraid to rip into my work, that's what I'm here for, to learn from the mistakes I make. There are many things which I can't see in my work, and others do. This both scares and inspires me! =)

    You've raised a good point in that I haven't been really looking at and drawing what I see in many pieces. In some cases I'm trying to draw from imagination, but the studies aren't that good I must confess.

    I do have a copy of the book you mentioned and will start reading through it.

    Thank you for the great advice, it's really helped me to recognise mistakes in my work.

    Keep well bro.
    Edward
