    Hi .Try doing some flour sacks.They will improve your gestures. Here is a link. http://www.animatorisland.com/hello-world/

    Thanks for the tip Gibier! I took your advice to heart and, without intending to, drew over 100 flour bags today! They started out rough but by the end I was getting a feel for them. When I draw them it still feels like an educated guess rather than a simple construction. Doing them really highlights the difficulty I have connecting simple forms connect. I also tried applying them briefly to some gesture drawings but it's getting late so I didn't end up doing to many. Let me know if you have any more suggestions! Gonna try and work on deforming the flour bag more and more horizontal positions as well as trying to apply it to my figure drawings more.

    Also been doing some perspective work. Currently struggling with the constructions of a rotated tilted plane from the How to Draw book. Really want to get that one down. The mirrored plane is always so distorted. Gahh!

    It was a fun day of drawing!

    Perspective studies, and a couple of Winslow Homer studies.

    I think these constructions are key for mirroring the rotated tilted plane

    Having a little fun with the perspective stuff. Would like to eventually make things more interesting with multiple vanishing points and the other things I've been practicing.

    Nice perspective practice and hatch-lines (or whatever you'd call them). I also like the motion in your gestures

    Thanks Trixtar!

    Finally think I figured out the rotated-titlted plane! Had to create a second rotated grid to get it right but I think it worked. Now I need to figure out how to do the construction in a slightly less involved way.

    Also more gestures, a little rough but I feel like I'm getting better at seeing the volume in the torso (though these gestures may not reflect that!).


    1st attempt still feels off,

    Went to the Redwoods this weekend! It was spectacular and reminded me why I even wanted to draw/paint in the first place! I need to spend more time just drawing outside. Any critique always welcome!

    Awesome sketchbook man, you're studying exactly the right stuff and there's already a ton of improvement. Gestures and feel of 3 dimensionality have improved the most in accordance with what you've been studying so that's very impressive. I think anatomy knowledge is still holding your characters back somewhat but that is something you can focus on at a later stage. You are very much on the right track so I look forward to see how you progress, all you have to do is keep going!

    Thanks Dennis! It's great to hear that kind of feedback. I totally agree about the anatomy and I'm hoping to start the landmark chapter in Hampton's book so that should start me down the anatomy road (albeit very simplified). Sometime in the future I want to do the type of detailed anatomy studies that you dedicated alot of time to!

    I went back to doing gestures with a pen and it feels rough! Whenever I use the pen I feel like my gestures get so messy. but I was feeling a little lost so I decided to stick with the pen to push myself as well as do more horizontal poses since I tend to avoid those. Also really trying to focus on where the flow of the gesture is and the tile of the rib-cage and pelvis.

    At the end of the night did some quick (probably should have taken more time) observational studies of a cast with the goal of only using 3 values but that proved really hard for me which means I need to try again!

    First few are pretty rough...

    Didn't actually do any drawing yesterday and I think that's going to be a more frequent problem as I'm trying to defend by June and I still have a lot of writing left! But some more stuff from Friday, including the noses I kept on forgetting to post!

    Probably my last post for a little while and just when I was starting to push past gestures! But hopefully I'll keep drawing a modest amount.

    Back at it!

    Found a bit of time in the last few weeks so I've been able to draw some but still not on a regular basis. Taking a little break from the perspective exercises from How to Draw and trying to get more into anatomy and head drawing. I'm hoping the anatomy knowledge will improve my gestures and the head drawing will help me develop a structural approach to drawing (in other words, I'm still just following Michael Hampton's book which I really like!). Anyways here they are from the last couple months in no particular order.

    From reference, getting back into it after a long hiatus.

    More from life drawing. This was a long pose session (2.5 hours) and I feel like I don't actually know how to spend more than 10 mins on a single pose so I just moved around and captured different angles...

    Tried applying some of the head structure to actual images. Sort of a mess, but I can see the how it will eventually improve my head studies!

    Some of the loomis heads look a tad asymmetrical. The right side seems to skew higher than left.

    3/4 ones look a little bit too tall.

    Nice studies nonetheless.

    Have you considering picking some photo references and trying to make the loomis head over them? It's quite good to see if it fits and where we're getting it wrong.

    Thanks for point that stuff out! I never noticed the skewed nature of the heads until now, so thank you! I for sure struggle with making the chin too large. I've been meaning to do some overlays but I don't have any digital gear so I need to print out photos and then do the exercises, which needless to say is a bit of an impediment. Guess I could also just get some recycled papers/magazines now that I think about it!

Guess I could also just get some recycled papers/magazines now that I think about it!
    Oh, that's a impediment, yes.

    You can try and look at a reference on your computer and draw it on paper. Then scan and overlay to see what's different. It's a bit harder, I guess, but it will also make your observational skills improve.

    Some how these are all supposed to be he same model. At this sage I'm just trying to apply some of the exercises so likeness is not the focus (or at least that's what I'm telling myself!).

    Decided to do a little painting (gouache) which has been really fun and totally different from all the gesture stuff I've done before. Also started studying eyes and doing some 5 min gestures from reference.

    I find it frustrating how long my sketchbook pages become so I'm playing around with putting more sketches into a single image to conserve space and make it more readable. That said this was a pretty terrible effort since I don't actually have a good program to combine individual photos together!

    I don't have time to practice at home since I defend in June but I find doing these value studies are fun and good 30min break from writing. The first two are from paintings by William Henry Price that my school has. The rest are from life!

    Study on the left feels like I did a better job of grouping values which is good since it's the most recent sketch I've done. Study on the right is from life.

    First effort at painting a life scene a couple days back. I think I was a bit too ambitious...

    There was actually a car in the bottom right corner but I didn't want to paint it so I tried to put a bush instead...
