Thread: Learning to draw
March 27th, 2012 #313
VK thank you!!
Vertical thanks for the links! I don't have Successful Drawing but in FDFWIW there is a section about placing figures correctly in relation to perspective, I'll have a look at that
Spent a few hours painting this yesterday. The original is a bit smaller than A4 size. Trying to get some traditional Chinese painting influences into it. Was pretty fun.
I feel I could have pushed the saturation even more, my watercolor always has a very wishy-washy look to it because I'm afraid to lay down color. Though I only realized after I finished that the arms are of different lengths...

I second the well done in the exams matey, good one! where to now is the question?
in the meantime the safety poster is masterful, its funny and cute but also does the safety job as well, that gets an "A" from me, that last one is spankingly good too, there is a simplicity and a sense of peace about it, either that or I am bieng weird again which is easily possible!
all the very best to you matey.

Huntero: yeah there are, can't remember why I wrote them though
Naids, lightship, VK: thanks! I'm going to the US for uni got into a really good school (took me a week to accept that it wasn't an administrative error!) which is ridiculously expensive but I think it's gonna be really fun too. Paying off the student loan won't be that fun though meh. It's so much money I don't even know if I can get a loan...!
1. SP from imagination, one major alignment issue rescued with the Warp tool and a lot of excess hair cut off with Eraser. conclusion: I’m not nearly observant enough normally. the eyes and brows are definitely off; most accurate part is the mouth.

si3g: thanks! And yes, it is very off, haha. That's what I get for rushing into rendering without working out problems first.
I am too hesitant with my lines now. Very afraid of getting things wrong. Found myself actually doing fuzzy line for the first try on Hannah (top one) - tried starting with some sort of sight-size block-in - then erased the whole thing and built up from an oval instead.

Oh gosh, I haven't been here in far too long.
Update on my life: I'm going to Yale for uni, and because I'm on a scholarship (Yale is really expensive otherwise) I will be doing a major in computer science, and have to be an engineer for 6 years after I graduate before I am free to change jobs.
Uh, I might also be suffering from mild depression, but I'm not really sure. I keep crying a lot (not in public or in front of family of course), I've been crying almost constantly for...1.5 weeks or something? If it gets worse I will see if I can go back to my old school and talk to the counsellor there.
Update on the art front: I've done far too little art since I last posted; I know I had that to-do list, and ugh well I had a big list of things to do during this pre-uni break, but it's mostly undone. To be honest I've come back to this page a few times but each time I didn't want to post, because I was ashamed of not having done anything I really love drawing, but i just lost my motivation to do anything...it's like I've lost interest in it, but I still like doing it, does that make sense?
But I'm finally back, and now that I think of it posting sort-of regularly around here motivated me to at least have some small updates each time, and I just drew more in general while I was posting actively here, so yeah. I'm back after 2 months And it might help with the depression/crying thing by keeping me occupied.
That got long. tl;dr - hi again guys.
I obtained the images of my prep work boards for art coursework last year, so here they are. I submitted these around September last year, though the things in them were done over a longer period of time.
They're a little big, sorry.

new pic. I forgot to do something with the cup…and I should have worked out the pose and perspective first. Didn’t know it would turn into a full picture.
I wanted to try out painting a bokeh-type background, but I didn’t look at references so it became this…;;

Depression of any sort sucks! Hope it gets well asap.
I'm surprised to read that you're going Yale to study computer science instead of art (I always thought all along when you said you're studying overseas, it's some art school in the states etc.)
Good luck anyway!
