    Mindflaws inaccurately directions (18+) *update august 12*

    Hello

    heres some sketchbook drawing I prefer pen since I don't have to care about what to do with all the mistakes
    Mindflaws inaccurately directions (18+) *update august 12*

    Ok heres a try at drawing straight lines. IRL the lines are 29,6 cm long or 11,65 inch long. I just fill an entire A4 paper. This time I got more than 130 lines next time I will get more lines in there and straighter.

    The biggest problem with long lines is that I got a tendency to curve the line,
    note to myself: Must learn how to move the entire arm better.

    Yikes! What an exercise! Did you have the paper propped up in front of you or flat on a surface below you, like a desk? Propping it in front of you can help force you to use your arm from the shoulder, as can holding your drawing utensil like you would hold a piece of chalk (although, i don't know if that's really possible when using pen). I will have to try that exercise myself!

    Your middle figure study has good weight to it.

    Thanks for the comments

    Sideshowbob: Yeah your right training cubes and also spheres, cones, cylinders is something you never could train to much no matter if you're a beginner like me or a hardcore pro. I do short lines too. I have to draw differently when I do long ones.

    wertle: No I did have it flat I'm going to test "Propping it in front" of me

    Ok heres som anatomy study from reference

    Mindflaws inaccurately directions (18+) *update august 12*

    Ok I'm trying to draw from my mind using Mentlers tip about just drawing figures small just to learn about gestures, but I also have to learn not only in theory about proportions and such too They are really terrible but they gonna be better. It's just so totally different from drawing from life. Tried to do them fairly quick too.

    Failure day
    Today I have mostly tried to get a feeling for soft pastel by doing quick sketches heres one

    Mindflaws inaccurately directions (18+) *update august 12*
    It's a thumbnail... click it to see bigger image.

    Note to myself; stay away from soft pastel for a while, continue with anatomy and little figures.

    :teeth:

    Have been learning about movement and proportions of the human.

    I drew this from my mind did look at the other figure when drawing the head otherwise I had the other figures covered, to be forced to draw from memory. when I have drawn the entire figure I checked if the angles was correct if not I looked at the previous figure for some time then cover it again and corrected the figure. I did not use a ruler either. so it's a little jumpy.

    Animation contains 15 frames.

    considered my skill level I'm actually quite pleased with the result. Gonna do something similar in a couple of monts to check if I have improved.

    Returning the favor...

    I would point out that in one of the instances of the legs crossing, they corss straight when one of them should be leading with the knee up. You got this right the other time the legs crossed, so perhaps you simply forgot to put it on the end of the animation.

    Your eyeballing in sketches is very good, and will only improve as you continue with techincal anatomy studies. Keep it up!

    Another crit about your animation is the guy's step. Just remember heel - toe, heel - toe. It looks like he is just sliding his feet along. If you're serious about animation a great book to pick up is the Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams.

    ok...been working with anatomy

    Mindflaws inaccurately directions (18+) *update august 12*

    With the hand I've been testing the grid system. I think I'm going to stick with the grid system when I'm doing these anatomical studies, since I'm always eyeball everything else I do.
    Mindflaws inaccurately directions (18+) *update august 12*

    Thought I should post a progress of the hand.

    first I draw in the contours using a pencil
    Mindflaws inaccurately directions (18+) *update august 12*

    Then I take of the grid and start to use my steel nib to ink contours and then to hatch, cross-hatch the shades.
