    week 10

    Couldn't get into it this week, arrived late and got stuck behind a pillar unable to see the model properly, in between two people who had just come to chat noisely....grr! Oh well, always next week.

    Hey everyone,

    Here's some more from me from this week. As ever, any crits much appreciated as there's no tutor at these sessions. I was trying to get the outline in one go as suggested by @Mawh. Also been trying to get the tonal areas smoother, I really love those effortless buttery strokes that some people have on here whilst my values generally look like they were scribbled in by an angry child. Oh well.

    2 min gestures (the model was holding a hula hoop by the way)

    Lightpunk : I'm not sure about translation but for 20 minutes-long-drawing you can look at "full" and "empty" zones in a way to have a better construction?

    Thanks @dessinateurimpulsif, I will try to look at that.

    @quaternion I like your latest ones I think they have a nice sense of volume to them, particularly the third one down.

    Here's a couple from me this week. They basically suck tho! I know this is gonna sound like a lame excuse but up to now I've been drawing on newsprint but this week I ran out and used some different paper which was really rough in texture which kind of threw me a bit, felt like I was drawing with a tree stump!

    By the way @quaternion, did you go for the tutored or untutored class in the end?

    tutored class

    It's very unlike what I expected. I expected I'd be learning anatomy, proportion, etc. I had imagined the tutor would walk around, tell me I screwed up proportions and perspective and confused shoulder blades with buttocks or something like that. But the tutor rarely says anything about anatomy issues etc. Instead, she showed me how to use charcoals and conté (and I'll be experimenting with more materials the next sessions, maybe ink, and finally hopefully some oil painting). Actually, I like that. This weeked, I will get my own charcoals and a larger sketchbook, and hopefully improve my charcoal skills.

    It's exciting and all, and initially I was enthusiastic because in most of my life drawings, I didn't have any big screwups or any really tough problems setting up the figure. But now I feel less enthusiastic because it's still such a long way till I'll be really good at figure drawing. Setting up own figures, inventing new poses etc. does not come easy to me. It's a little bit frustrating, but it's ok.

    Don't worry about the length of the journey dude, focus on the little goals and the big ones will take care of themselves!

    That's interesting about your class - I assumed things like proportion errors would be part of the teaching but I guess that will probably come in time. Good luck, look forward to seeing some oil paintings in due course!

    Hey,

    another question to you all: What kind of books do you study with? Or do you use books at all?

    Personally, I started off with Bridgman, then tried a bunch of other books. Most people told me Bridgman isn't so good for studying. I don't know, he's kind of still my favourite.

    Do you or did you use lots of reference stuff to learn proper anatomy? Or did all of that just come by itself through many many nude drawing sessions?

    quaternion :

    I look a lot books of andrew loomis, then bargues... I know brigdman since many years but i begin to draw from his books since few time...I think that kevin chen is a very good ref to. Knowledge are very usefull but you need to practice from life in the way not to invent.

    Here is the results of last week's sessions...

    Try to draw with 8b mineplumb, lines seems to be awfull, the first portrait more interesting due to lines which are not drawn in light parts...

    two firsts drawings are 15 minutes long each, other are from 3 to 5 minutes...

    week 13

    Here's some from this week both 10/15 mins

    I feel like I'm still really struggling with getting the gesture down and the proportions etc right. I've been trying to use the 'reilly method' for laying in the gesture, with careful measuring etc but this seems to lead to quite a stiff drawing. On the other hand, when I try and do a more loose rhythmic gesture sketch I tend to lose control of the proportions. Any tips anyone on reconciling the two?

    People wake up and have a bad day and don’t put any lines down that are worth it. It’s very reinvigorating to take a day off and realize there’s nothing you can screw up in your drawing, there’s nothing to fear but your own laziness. –Marko Djurdjevic facelessvision.wordpress.com
