    Max 15s Gestures

    -----------------------------------
    Comments, criticism and everything is welcome here. If you ask I'll answer. Here is some of my studies and works.
    -Art is bloody fuuuuun, difficult, and more fun

    Life drawings 12 minutes at the most:

    -------------------





    I stayed after practice at Kajaani's local sport center to do some gesture drawings. All of these were done under 15 seconds, I took time with my phone .

    I'm the actor and the paper is my stage. The acting is in my mind and clarity of feeling is key. I need more clarity and complete understanding of the action that takes place. While drawing I often feel somewhat confused. Everyone is movie, playing the game in real time, real life. I try to play with them, In the paper, in my mind. The game should be played evenly quickly and fluidly, not getting stuck on one part.

    This game is a fun and difficult one, to play with ones mind, paper and hand.

    45min self-portrait, while listening to http://www.livestream.com/danielsdan...b-1cdd756b0fda

    The shadow at the neck is probably too harsh and the hair tone should be darker. The nose could be more defined as well as the hair shape. What do you think?

    Breaking gestures

    Trying to break my patterns in gesture drawing. The first is done with my left hand (I'm right handed), The second is made with the mentality that each line is super important, and the third is made without looking at the paper while drawing. These are all done from real life.

    The above self-portrait, 45min
    The collarbones shadow is probably too harsh. The Nose and hair shape could be more defined, as well as the overall surface form. The hair tone cold be darker and reflected light cold be stated more accurately. Now the reflected light seems actually hap hazardous.

    Good evening.
    Nice to see another guy(?) trying to improve on "the way of art".
    I think you got the right idea what to do and I personally find your works with water colour(?) impressive.
    For me these are bloody difficult and they don´t nearly end at this level. So thumbs up from me, keep going and last but not least have fun.

    Studies

    Eye and nose studies from life. I wrote the text in the bottom right of the nose studies. It says: More angels and definition of form.

    It's a refreshing sketchbook if it makes any sense I enjoy your loose lines of your figures and hands. The gestures in #2 are very interesting, it's good to look at them.
    Nothing left but using my critic skills where it's best and where you aren't that strong: the self portrait. The lighting isn't fortunate, it would be better to have lit places on the face too. All the features are a bit off, not following the curvature of the head, having a bit different perspective from the rest, the usual stuff. I mostly criticize heads, it's hard to get these right.
    Oh and your digital pears are way too soft like a photo with the focus off.

    Thanks + cast

    shiNIN: Thank you for your great comment! Now that I look closer I do see the mistakes that you mentioned on my self-portrait. Thank you. If you wouldn't have commented I wouldn't have notices and couldn't try to focus more on getting the facial features right next time. I'll try to do better next time on the digital studies . You'r comment was great, It helps me grow and to navigate the path i walk on. Thank you

    Warforce17: *offers a pear*

    Blunderguffer: Brilliant and thank you! I'll keep up drawing, developing and having fun. Thanks mate :3

    ----

    From today on I'm 19years old for about 365days .
    Yay!

    Cast drawing, charcoal and something white the teacher writs with on the board infront of the class. The paper is toned pretty much middle gray. This one took me about 15hours, enjoy.

    Ps, no charcoal used on the cast, only white - a personal challenge >:3.
