    Starting Out

    I am an architecture student and I have starting trying to learn how to put people in my perspctives. Right now I mostly draw from photos, I find it difficult right now to come up with my own poses. Here is one of my earlier drawings.

    I´ll talk with you in spanish (because I see you are spanish) if you don´t mind.

    Me parece un dibujo bastante correcto el de la chica,pero lo mejor sería que lo subieras en una resolución menor.También,para hablar de perspectivas,sería mejor ver algo que no fuese un primer plano,ya sabes...
    Ah,por cierto,puedes reescalar tus dibujos en imageshak.us,por ejemplo.Enseñanos más cosas!!!Animo!!

    hmmm drawing from photos is good for really focusing on how light and tone interact with moving objects (such as people)which might be hard if u were to do them from life, but something i am recently discovering is how important it is to draw from life along side reference pictures studies, it helps you visualise objects in a 3 dimensional form and will really end up helping ur drawings out in a big way.

    as far as your pictures did u copy that face from a cartoon?and i really like the lower pic REALLY cool shadows on the bricks, keep it up

    DannySketch - The Picture of the face was from a magazine. My drawings usually come out kind of cartoony.

    Camara - My spanish is ok, but not great. Instead of going to imageshack I would rather try to reduce correctly in Photoshop since I am trying to learn how to use that program. Thanks for your comments though. What did you mean by primer plano? First Plan?

    The two drawings are of my own design without using references.

    When you guys draw by hand on what size is the sheet of paper that you normally use?

    from where you are right now... i can suggest for an architecture student (i was one once)...try to find a life drawing session and join. go look around @ an art department of your school there's bound to be one or two after class. In some case, drawing from photos has its benefit...for those who already know anatomy well already...but u will not get the perspective and form understanding that u get from lifedrawing. good luck.
