    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=209890

    For now I'll just post some older life drawing sketches (time scale: ~1 or 2 hours for most of them) but I ll post new stuff/assignments soonish:

    Update! I was bored on Friday so I started a painting from a reference. Here is what I got so far:

    Initial pencil sketch. Too rushed, full of mistakes...

    Name:  IMG_20110520_203742.jpg
Views: 802
Size:  122.0 KB

    Oh well, let's fix it up a bit on gimp and start placing colors:

    Name:  Tovi2render.jpg
Views: 674
Size:  90.4 KB

    Current version is below, a few hours later (probably 10 hours total):

    Name:  3933962.jpg
Views: 1381
Size:  77.8 KB

    My comments:
    I struggled quite a lot with the face at that particular angle, I redrew it once before coloring. Then when doing the colors, the face kept bugging me, I eventually gave up and overlaid (no, I didn't trace, just compared then fixed stuff after the fact) the reference to figure out my mistakes. What really messed me up was the alignment of the chin with the eyes, I shouldn't draw the jaw/chin first, that's usually not the best idea.


    Update on copyrights: I can post my art (thankfully) but not the reference picture.

    Update: I wont be in town for 2 weeks so I wont be posting life drawings but I'll try to keep this up to date anyway. Otherwise, I'll try to post life drawings weekly. This week's drawings (paper meant to be white... I should take better pictures):

    90 second poses:

    Still 90 seconds.

    20-30 (I forgot) minutes
    Name:  IMG_20110527_202649.jpg

    20-30 minutes
    Name:  IMG_20110527_202657.jpg
Views: 697

    30 minutes:
    Name:  IMG_20110527_202715.jpg
Views: 694

    The last one was a disaster, I restarted it 10 times, couldn't go very far.

    More older life drawings, I wanted to keep a digital record of them somewhere. Those are typically longer poses (a couple of hours) besides the portraits which are more like 10-20 minutes. I feel a bit rusty when I look at some of those. I should get to it again. One can probably guess which is older and which is newer:
    Name:  IMG_20110528_095309.jpg
Views: 683
Size:  79.7 KB

    1 - I think the chin/cheek line is too far on the right.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095326.jpg
Views: 715
Size:  68.9 KB

    2 - Neck too long, I made that drawing 2 years ago or so and I just noticed it today. Her right arm (on the left) looks too small overall.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095343.jpg
Views: 749
Size:  59.2 KB

    3 - The legs/feet kinda suck, I should study those more.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095400.jpg
Views: 837
Size:  63.0 KB

    4 - forehead make the head look a bit distorded. feets and hands are not finished. The shading/anatomy of the upper body is soso.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095415.jpg
Views: 1089
Size:  67.8 KB

    5 - Her arms look a bit broken, the legs could have been better too.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095430.jpg
Views: 682
Size:  76.0 KB

    6 - The face doesnt feel right, doesnt look like the model. I think there are other issues, the area around her right knee dosn't feel right either.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095444.jpg
Views: 683
Size:  77.1 KB

    7 - Too much hair, I think it was done to compensate for other issues with the face. The feet are broken.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095457.jpg
Views: 702
Size:  72.0 KB

    8 - A few issues with the neck. The arm looks flat and structureless. Her legs are soso to bad.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095512.jpg
Views: 1019
Size:  65.3 KB

    9 - I cant tell much as I like this drawing, I guess her hands/feet could have been better. I am not too sure about the proportions but I know the model was very short though.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095532.jpg
Views: 656
Size:  84.1 KB

    10 - No comments, looks good for the time I spent on it

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095549.jpg
Views: 653
Size:  57.8 KB

    11 - Shows my weaknesses again (feet/knee etc). Looks good overall given the difficulty of the pose.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095603.jpg
Views: 669
Size:  60.3 KB

    12 - Head looks a bit distorded. Knees seem pretty thin.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095616.jpg
Views: 664
Size:  60.1 KB

    13 - Right arm and head have issues. That pose was hard because a lot of the body was hidden.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095632.jpg
Views: 714
Size:  74.2 KB

    14 - Head too big, neck too long. I was experimenting with colors.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095640.jpg
Views: 660
Size:  59.7 KB

    15 - NECK! Her foot is broken.

    Name:  IMG_20110528_095649.jpg
Views: 654
Size:  56.1 KB

    16 - Head feels distorded even though his head was looking like this in reality .


    Edit: Looking at those drawings again, I am noticing quite a few obvious mistakes, I listed them under each drawing and I'll assign a number to each. People are welcomed to add more comments, please be tough on me, I like it.

    I updated one of my posts, I removed some pics because I got worried about copyrights. I put back the final version of the painting concerned but unfortunately, I cannot show the reference.

    I am starting assignment 1 of the study group: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=209890

    I pick that reference as I like dragons and I think it will challenging enough for me to do:
    Name:  ws_Riding_a_dragon_1600x1200.jpg

    I am starting with 3 layers, not sure it s a good choice:

    Name:  Assign1.step1.png

Size:  567.3 KB

    I refining the volumes a bit, I am trying to use the negative space as much as I can, I feel a bit squished horizontally for some reason:

    Update: Some life drawings from last week and this week. Somehow, I feel that 2 weeks break didnt do any good to me . Comments are under the attachments.

    1- Meh...

    Name:  IMG_20110623_095749.jpg

    2- More Meh...

    3- A little better.

    4- Odd looking position, I blame the legs/feet. If somebody has specific comments, I'd be glad to hear them.

    Name:  IMG_20110623_095902.jpg

    5- I am fairly happy about that one.

    6- Focused on the face mostly, then I rushed the body (hence why the head look small compared to the rest of the body)

    Nice work! I look forward to seeing how that dragon piece turns out. It's looking pretty good already.

    Update:

    As suggested, I worked a bit more on the background, that made me notice more problems with negative space. Somehow, I am struggling to fit in all the features under the dragon. I was painting everything at once so it looks a bit chaotic now.

    Update on the reference study. I just spent a couple of hours on it, I must say I am getting overwhelmed by the amount of details I have to fit in there. I think it s getting very important for me to get the main volumes right asap or it will much harder to fix it later on. Any suggestions are welcome at this point for me to make the best use of my time on that study.
