My name is Chasen, I'm having big hopes of becoming an illustrator and concept artist working in the industry helping create amazing products that many will enjoy ! I'm still in high school so I'm pretty much largely a beginner but I'm hoping to grip a very firm hold of basics and fundamentals before high school is over ! I only have three more years so I have to work extremely hard !!
I've decided to re-visit basic gesture & mannequin fundamentals since my figures looks pretty stiff and boring. Very basic and unrefined but I can already see some slight progress on various forms. Next I'll most likely be going more in depth with muscles to further my figures.
You have a tendency to make arms and legs too thick. If you're not already, I suggest finding a life drawing class somewhere and doing that for a while. If you don't have any available to you, then just draw people on the street or at school.
Yeah, I've noticed some weird tendencies with various regions of my anatomy which will hopefully be smoothed out during the summer, I'm ordering 130$ worth of various books to study over the summer. I'll try to find some life drawing sessions but I'm not sure if they have some sort of age limit since I'm under 18 years old...haha. Even then I've already planned to study figures from photographs this summer as well so hopefully that will be an ok substitute...
