    Crits & Comments Deeply Appreciate - tudore sketchthread

    I'm doing what I can to improve: gesture and blind contour, copying loomis and bridgman, drawing from reference, drawing commuters on the subway, drawing sculpture from museums. If I could get a model or find a life drawing class, I'd do more lifedrawing; for now, I use quickposes and pixlovely. The NSFW will likely apply in the future.

    Thanks Black Spot.

    I didn't have time to finish the last sphere, but I think overall, I'm doing ok.

    I really like the style you got going on here, but your faes seem really wonky to me, so I'd suggest continuing to study head anatomy. Keep the work up!

    RissaKay Thanks for the comment. Do you see a particular distortion that is consistent across my drawings? Or are they each flawed in their own unique ways?

    You are off to a great start. I am beginner myself....but one thing I noticed with your spheres is that the reflective light is too light...remember that the lightest part of the dark side, the reflective light, is still darker than the darkest part of the light side of the sphere. Also, with the reclining femal figure with the overswept hair, her head looks a bit small to me compared the rest of her body...maybe something to double check

    I really like some of those hand drawings you did and some of those action poses really give me a sense of the movement. I see you doing a lot of figure drawing...maybe you good to some still life drawings to change things up a bit.

    Thanks amaranthxx. Yeah, the values on the outer edge of that sphere should be reversed; I was really frustrated with that and now I realize why. For the figure, I'm having some issues with proportions that I still need to work out. Another person suggested I work on my sense of value with a small object, like a piece of fruit. While I'm not really interested in doing a full still life, I think that may be a useful exercise.

    These are really wonderful, I love all your studies I am a beginner as well, so the one thing I can say is sometimes your figures look a little off-balance. I would just try to watch the positioning of your feet and make sure your gesture is balanced before you fill in details. Man, I can't wait to see where you're going to be in a month!

    This looks like a very promising thread, and you've already greatly improved since your first post. Your lines are much more confident, but some of your figures still seem a bit stiff. As caseylarae had mentioned above, there are some minor balance issues with a couple of your figures as well. Just keep at it, and practice, practice, practice!

    I would also suggest to try some real-life studies, if you haven't already. They will help you gain better concept of lighting and shapes, which will help you improve in other areas as well.

    Fault, Kashidori, caseylarae Thanks for your comments. Some of the figures are in motion or are standing on one foot, so those are supposed to look unbalanced; as for the rest, yes, I must be more conscientious when I'm laying down the initial armature.

    Hey tudore! These studies are wonderful, I love that each figure and animal has its own personality! One thing I do notice is that you don't seem to use a lot of perspective in your drawings, so you might consider checking that out. I see a little bit of it in your figures, especially your dogs, but in some of the more complex scenes the figures fall a little flat. I have this problem too, where figures are strictly foregrounded and feel disconnected from the rest of the scene. For example, the one where the woman is throwing the other woman against a house feels like both figures are on the same plane even though the positioning of the thrown woman has been edited slightly to make her feel farther back. Her positioning in the setting is ambiguous -- have you tried plotting your scenes on a grid before you start and drawing your figures in cubes? Keep up the great work, I'm curious to see what you do next!

    Caseylarae Thanks for the crit. The drawing of the women you're refering to is a 10min speed drawing; I suppose I could try to do some perspective within that time limit, but I tend to take a considerable amount of time to put down my perspective lines... I suppose I'll give it a shot. My longer pieces make use of perspective, so I'll put the next one of those up for consideration.

    Heyya,

    I like your blue pencil. =]
    You are working hard, and I can see some progress already.
    Keep at it, and don't let yourself quit!

    The only thing that I might add to your routine is some muscle and bone studies.
    Knowing what is underneath the skin actually helps a lot!
    Riven Phoenix does a good job breaking that stuff down, so if you want a tutorial, look up his videos.

    Keep going! Good luck!
