    Blackhawk, MCM, and Jetpack post whenever we damn well feel like it.

    a little background: Blackhawk (nate) (or BIGGNATEDOGG to his close friends), MindCandyMan (Jon) and myself (michael) originally met and roomed together at the Austin workshop.

    (jon, michael, nate)
    Blackhawk, MCM, and Jetpack post whenever we damn well feel like it.

    Since then, we have gone to seperate Ateliers, hundreds of miles away. Well, Jon went to one, Nate joined him, then I went to a different one.This thread will be a way for us to post a page a day, motivate, critique, and keep each other company in the weee weeeeeee hours of the morning.

    I'm always shooting for realistic. Though I always fall short. I figure once I can master that, or at least, come close to getting pretty good, then I can find my style. Until then, I'm just trying to break bad habits. Today I got so angry of politics, I couldn't think straight. This was done while listening to the election coverage on CNN...I just couldnt even think straight. I'll do something killer tomorrow.

    Yours is awesome. You inspired me to draw with a mechanical pencil. the undersketch really adds to the drawing, in this instance. are you doing this all with a pencil? or are you cheating some in photoshop?

    anyway, look for me tomorrow...I'll kick some ass.

    Good Mike. If your shooting for realistic, really study the anatomy and lighting as much as possible. Get heavily involved in your life drawing courses and really actively engage your brain in the process and memorizing what your drawing.

    The previous drawing was done in Painter. Keep it up bud, work work work work!!

    Great idea guys! These are all lookin great!
    Blackhawk - That preist guy kicks my ass! Cool angle and I dig the shading on his head. Those legs are great! The rendering of the right leg is excellent, I especially love the harshly shadowed area around the knee.

    JP - You're a maniac! You're doing great with those crazy perspecive angles of the heads. Those always confuse the hell out of me. Well... less now since I'm hooked up to the all mighty Watt's 5000. The profile is lookin good. I'd just say either get your ass in the Anatomy of the Torso class right now! or... watch your latts there. They look like they're wrapping under the pecs and not into the humerus. Also Marty explains the Serratus as an arc where it is convex towards the front of the body. I'll have to show you some of the quick anatomy sketches Jeff has done all over my work. Great job though! AAATT for life!

    So uh... how does one join this monstrosity of a thread? Is it closed to all but you mighty 3... or can a whee fella like me join in the mix once I get some web space?

    JJ

    Just some boring anatomy studies...I spent more time erasing than anything else hehe...I definitely need this practice. You guys will kick my butt.

    I'm struggling trying to understand and grasp the 3d form and I'm trying to duplicate it from my head...sheesh that's hard:

    Blackhawk, MCM, and Jetpack post whenever we damn well feel like it.

    Ok Nate said I had to critique so here it is hehe:


    Mike your heads seem to be too big in all of these drawings and nate is right they are very stylized. Also your limbs seem a bit too flabby...use angular lines to make it look more solid...and make sure not to bend the bones. An hour really isn't a long time though hehe.

    Nate that knee on the right is good and you really see the structure there but the leg on the left is really weird looking to me for some reason...maybe it's the foot. The foot looks like rubber and the lower left side of the kneecap looks really strange sticking out like that. That may be the drawing you were using though hehe. I like the bishop scorpion but the hat is sort of out of perspective or something wonky.

    Blah, ran out of time, didn't really come together like I had hoped for the time limit, but I'm going to work the idea up more.

    Bjorn - How's it going man? I miss you guys from Amsterdam, that was fun. You've been kicking ass, I love your work man.

    Spaz - Thanks man.

    Jon - Thanks man. Yeah, the priest drawing was wonky. After I had already drew it out right before my time was up, I had noticed the perspective problems. As for the knees, most of it was my screw-up, some was just the straight copy from the reference I was studying. I need to do more, I learned a bit about knee structure. It was good. Thanks for the critique.

    Your leg studies are looking good, get more solid structure in there. Some of the proportions and angles are wonky though. Legs are off axis, looks kind of noodley. Keep practicing though. EVERYDAY!!

    I rushed a little too much, but I wanted to compose some figures on the page. I'll slow down on the next few, but I wanted to give this a shot and have a little fun. More seriousness tomorrow.

    Blackhawk2- the stand up leg looks great. the sitting leg, the knee looks a little too far slanted from right to left. i could be wrong, but this is what my gut tells me

    spaz- cool man, i still gotta check out yours and adrians sketchbooks sometime too. you will have to show me. ive studied the neck alot, and im trying to broaden my understanding on down the torso, but ive studied feet the least, and it shows. one thing at a time though. once you get some space, get on in, dood.

    hurricane- thx dude. our powers combined, we are captain america!

    MCM- thanks man, you're right. i'll keep that in mind, and try and straighten things out. I'll keep an eye on dem heads. Thanks!

    Yeah, it is tough. One thing to keep in mind, I'm told in quicksketch, try and get the sweep of the limb first, then build the muscles around it. This is good advice for myself, and its funny that I'm telling you, I need it just as much. but something to keep in mind, get the general direction and proportions, then build the muscles. keep an eye on the whole. and limit yourself with the eraser! hehe.

    Blackhawk3- ill as usual, man. to be picky, the eyes dont look like they line up, or are the same size in the same size eye sockets. great work!

    bwkeough - Thanks man!

    Nate that rules...but how long did you have to hold your face like that heheheh...I would have loved to see that. Give the head a bit more perspective and it's lovalee.

    jetty I love the pose just make sure the proportions are right...also think of defining the form by the shadows...make sure your tone is more consistent and less scratchy so it reads right...really study how the shadow shapes create the illusion of form...it's really tough in an hour though that's for sure heheh...really tough.

    i was not watching bruce lee today. i slowed down and spent alot of time getting things right on this one...

    yeah, I'm workin on it. hehe. you might want to try and think about shading a little more with the forms. your values are working ok, but lots of the shading is going in the same direction, and its playing a double trick on my eyes...

    bwkeough- cool, thanks man.
