    2kre8 - I usually block in the chest, then arms and legs, head as the last addition because that's moving most.

    I tried that "line action" method, too, but found that then my drawings lack dimension/depth.

    Palace of Knowledge

    Last Thursday we finally made it (at last) to the exhibition "Palace of Knowledge" in Dortmund. The exhibition closed yesterday (to move on to other locations) and was quite interesting. It showed some of the stuff Tzar Peter the Great had collected in his lifetime. The artifacts were fantastic, the presentation not.

    Anyway, of course I had my sketchbook on me...

    Today's random sketches

    I had a few spare minutes before a meeting and just drew what I saw:

    I'm rather proud of this POS because this has been the first imaginary drawing in a looooong time and (though I see the many mistakes in this crappy piece) I think at least I managed to achieve a certain dimensionality.

    These were drawn during a talk show on TV

    Also, there are some Bridgman copies in the anatomy section of the Middle Class.

    I really struggle to get friends with Bridgeman, but alas! his style is very difficult for me to understand:

    There were some great bug's photos in the latest GEO magazine which inspired me to try to draw them.

    Thanks MCM, I really appreciate your comments. I heard that X-Men 2 starts tomorrow (Friday) in the US - go and see it, you'll like it! Best entertainment, best action, best SFX!!!

    More shape studies to come, I painted a toilet paper roll and a wooden cylinder white and also got two styrofoam balls.

    :p

    No shame in that man...it looks great! You gave them credit hehe. Hey I also wanted to let you know that those shape studies are excellent man....really good!

    With the LOTR drawing be conscious of your line weights. I may be wrong about this but it seems like line drawings read the best when the thicker line weight is consistent with the shadow areas. For instance in the shadow areas the line would be thicker and in the light areas the line would be very thin. What are your thoughts on this after having done this drawing?

    Thanks, MindCandyMan, I really enjoyed doing the shape studies as well as the Ent.

    You are right with the thicker line weights better to apply to the shadow areas. This is what I tried when drawing this ent, however, I felt that its right knee didn't stick out enough, and thus I made that top line thicker, giving up on consistency there.

    My thoughts while copying this drawing were changing all the way through. When I decided to draw this I thought "looks easy enough". I was still quite satisfied when I had done the pre-sketch. I thought I mugged it all up when I started on the details, esp. the leaves, which were a pain for me - I lack patience for this detail - and finally I was quite pleased again. Took me about 90 minutes and I enjoyed myself very much during this time.

    Thanks R_M, comments like these keep me going!

    So today at last my life drawing class started and it was really really demanding. We almost constantly drew for those 3:15h, starting with 3 minutes poses up to 20 minutes poses.

    Some of the drawings were to large to be scanned, so I took photos of them (the ones with the black "frame").

    Comments and crits are highly appreciated!
