Sort of just let loose here, seeing what we remember - or what we've forgotten... ugh! I think this was after a few quickie warm-ups. I don't think I like 4B...
Little bit more time on this one I think, man - looking back now it's amazing how much of the process, from what little I got, from Figure Drawing 1 that I've forgotten. (Almost all
!) Still just sort of playing it by ear...
Lil' more time here too I think, man - still not really using any sort of lay in or guidelines; ugh! Haha... Still not liking 4B.
Ok, so now he's reminded us about layins and line direction! Sweet! Never really used the sort of uhm, damn what's that called? Enveloping! Hey I think I finally sharpened my pencil on this one.
Yup, Figure Drawing 1 - "draped" models for probably the first half or so. Anyways, little warmed up for the day - sharp pencil and all. Starting to remember/re-learn this lay-in thing.
Lil' longer - starting to think about overlaps and just what I need to say with my lines... hmm hmm...
This one is one of those "continuos" line drawings, put your pencil down and never lift up. Most people seemed to hate them but I could feel my head working a bit differently so I think they are pretty cool. Can't exactly expect aesthetic results but hey...
This might be the next day, I dunno... more lay-ins and emphasis on line direction. Quickies.
Ok... these are strange. Starting with just negative shapes then building up with positive shapes - also a really different way to see things, could definetitly feel it working though. I think these are out of order...
Same thing, Negitive shapes then positive - building up like a jigsaw puzzle. Wierd but good. Yeah these are out of order, should be last... meh.
Just a quickie, starting to think more on overlapping... muahah. (makes so much more sense!)
Lil longer on this one, actually scanned these in first so they look a bit different. Tweaked the settings later to get it to look more true to life rather than this sharp pumped up high-contrast crap.
Yes yes I know, shouldn't ignore faces - look I've got plenty else to concentrate on right now
We'll get to faces soon enough, I need to figure out how to use a pencil and how to draw first.
Another quickie layin - switched to HB today; I like it better for sure. Using those full graphite pencils by the way.
Just negative shapes, maybe I cheated a little bit with the uhm - envelope but it was still good practice!
