    Hours of Drawing

    I try to draw with emotion. Most of these pictures are studies of emotion and not so much how well they are rendered and the like.

    Hey, Kane702. I like these drawings very much. I think the emotion is here in your work. And it's even greater because the emotion in first drawing is not so obvious, subtle. That's very hard to catch. So thank you for sharing

    i totally agree with sve. the emotion is pretty good and the rendering isnt bad as well
    question: did you use reference or an anatomy book for the 2nd post?

    Hi,

    I think it's not bad, but the emotion doesn't really show through in the last picture. It's a more comic book style look, but not to realistic. You should work a bit on the muscels covering the cheek bones and try to move them too, as you did with the nose. I like the anatomy sketch below. Looks a bit like young Burt Lancaster. His rght knee is to extended, but the rest isn't bad.

    Keep on drawing.

    cheers!

    I think is nice that somebody really takes care on how the muscles moves with the expressions of the face, muscles and bones, but always the question when you draw is about how it is or how it looks, normally in drawing the answer is close to how it looks, but for sure to do it that way you need to know how it is... is like a riddle

    Keep it going

    Some Analytical studies.




    What do you think makes picture one different from picture two? Besides the obvious.

    I am using Cyclopedia Anatomicae by Gyorgy Feher and Anatomy for the Artist by Jeno Barcsary. The Anatomy for the Artist is an old Hungarian 1st edition and I don't know if many people have heard of it (by this author at least).

    I tried to do a comparison of laughing and crying. The crying picture I used a referance on but the laughing I didn't.

    C&C welcomed

    I saw a different way of coloring an image the other day. This was my first attempt but I am in no way "good" at PS so I get king of lost. Don't mind the invisable foot and leg.


    C&C Welcomed

    If anyone can give any advice on the next steps I could take it would be greatly appreciated!

    Hey Kayne, nice start! Really good idea for the crying vs. laughing. I suggest you scan your drawing in grayscale mode (or at least convert it to grayscale in PS), you would'nt get the red-blue-green pixels within your lines.

    For the color piece my first tought would go for contrast and highlights on the red clothes, it's too gray (highlights should always reach white or almost) and it look a bit pasted on the character, maybe adding some shadows on the body, shadows that would be casted by the clothes (You can tint those redish like if the light was crossing the clothes). I see you use the COLOR mode for layer transparency, it's a quick solution but unapropriate for some areas as for the rock/boulder highlights. Keep up the good work man!
