just working on the hands, trying to get a cleaner look...
yeah, i started studying bridgman a while ago. unfortunately last days have been a little stressy, but i'll surely get into it more often...
oh, i fogot: worked on that color pencil portrait. the nose was soooooo wrong, don't know why i didn't see that myself. thanks a lot for pointing that out, nii!
Great to see you corrected your drawing I never have the pateince to do that myself. Still a very nice portrait looks like you may still be working on it if you still comeback to it and find things wrong with it (I always do with mine) don't worry about it, move on to something new. So I'm basically saying keep drawing stuff and stay motivated. Always here to lend a hand,
Jeff Jones was advised "No piece of art is ever a failure, because you never come away with less than you started with. ''
good hand studies, Bridgman yea? I would suggest that you keep on doing them for about a week, then stop copying from ref and draw from your own hands. After about a month or so, try to do it imagery. The colured drawing looks much better now. His nose looks normal !
Main thing is to keep it up!
Hi stine, sweet hand studies! and portrait looks even better! is that possible?
thanks a lot for having a look!
nii - thanks! yup, i guess i'll find plenty of stuff that's not working that well when i come back to that drawing. but you're right, i'll leave it alone for now. guess i was so busy getting the colors right that i lost a little track of the resemblance, but it's okay for now... thanks a lot for your help, REALLY appreciated!
qxzi - your schedule sounds really good. i just guess i'll need more time to get hands down. especially since we have this thing with the "who's first having 100 pages with hands" thing going... thanks a lot!
ham-e - thanks! you're still one page of hands ahead of me...
Wow that color portrait is nice!!
well, its always good to have a schedule, and do not breake the deadline (like I use to do )
qxzi's schedule sounds abit longish.. I mean 1 month is alot
thats like if I had only hands in my sb... its only been running in 1.5 months now
cool portraits....you should look at John singer sargent's portrait drawing book, it is just amazing. On the last one I think the nose is ok, it's the mouth thats not at the right angle.
No real comment or anything constructive. Just that I LOVE THIS SKETCH BOOK!!!
Keep it up.
afgal - thanks!
dile - thanks for visiting again! looking forward to "project exodus"! i actually think one month is a very short period of time - it's not that i want to practise hand exclusively, but focusing on them for a while. i guess it's gonna take years until i can draw them from imagination truly convincing and i don't think that's a bad thing. guess, i'm a patient person...
joshk - thanks for stopping by! the mouth is actually a little "elvis presley-ish" not too regular. unfortunately i don't have the book i worked from anymore, but if you want to have a look at the actual painting, it's david's "portrait of the duke of nantes"...
anyway - if i didn't transport the mouth convincingly then that's my mistake. gonna have a look at that again. thanks for pointing that out!
ashrumm - thanks, man. i also think we all benefit from the sketchgroup big time. great to have you guys!
renegadepogo - thanks a lot for the nice words, man. appreciate it!
so just a small update. been busy helping a friend moving to switzerland, packing, painting the apartment, cleaning and stuff. so just another page of hands.
