    Cool drapery/fashion studies, again. Got some good shapes going on there.

    I completely endorse your proposition to push yourself and do more creative work. This is where you'll be tested to see what you've really learned.
    Something that's taken me a long time to realize that doing studies to supplement an original work is far more educational and efficient than arbitrary studies, but I suppose it's one of those things that you can only say after having been through it.

    Looking forward to these creative pieces.
    No pressure.

    The latest updates are high end man. Practicing with not erasable media made your precision skill hit the roof. Your a sharp(ie)shooter now

    Wow i just made a weird post.

    Thanks. All good process advice.

    I'm trying to combine building my visual library with *applying* skills (IE construction, anatomy,
    mark making, drapery, etc.). Not entirely with a clear archetype in mind just yet more just an
    aesthetic exploration of a personality and mood.

    Always working man, just not always posting. How about you? Hope your not too deep in the
    doldrums man, always got to stay positive, ok?

    Your welcome...now, MORE MORE MORE!

    Thanks. Trying to encode the line styles and rhythms into my muscle memory.

    Yeah...I am learning lately that real growth comes from pushing yourself just beyond what you
    think you can do. However for myself the trick is not to GET PSYCHED OUT. As always I find
    myself repeating "Take your time, just take your time, but don't think, just DO". Its sooo hard
    *whine* hehe.

    Drawing every day I do, but trying to not be lame and just stay in my comfort zone, constantly going in circles.

    Thanks. Now if only I could be that clean and confident when working from memory

    Thanks.

    lol, if you think that is weird you have not spent enough time on the internets...

    Well folks, been working, sorry for not posting, I am a selfish man. Actually I have a backlog
    of stuff I think is moderately worth sharing soo...lets get started.

    first things first:

    some pretty trashy stuff from imagination

    Attachment 1454573

    Didn't make me vomit. Also I realize again that I REALLY REALLY need to ditch
    my crappy all-in-one scanner and set up a photo stand or something. Unfortunately
    I need to make some space...and that's time taken away from drawing...ugh

    Attachment 1454574

    big life drawing backlog. More over the week.

    This session was full of psych-outs, unfortunately. But I love to draw Jenny, I could do it all day:

    Attachment 1454576

    Hopefully Easter and such will not knock me off tempo. Finally starting to feel like I'm
    getting into my pace again after like six months.

    Thanks Y'all for stopping by

    Yes, it's always hard to push yourself knowing the inevitable failure, but I guess it's easier once you accept that fact and become accustomed to it (to some degree).

    The guy who's never asked a girl on a date will be scared for his life at the prospect. The guy who's done it a hundred times won't bat an eye.
    On the other hand, that second guy might lose all hope an never try again... So... It's all about your out look I guess, ha....

    The lady in the middle of the panel of characters is the best, naturalistic posture and nice shapes.
    Just because you're drawing from imagination doesn't mean you can't look at reference. Draw it how you think, then check out some reference and adjust.
    In respect to gestures and poses, don't forget to get a feel for it by doing the pose yourself, preferably with a mirror.

    Keep up the pace!!!

    hmm....or you could just do this for the rest of your life. Its worked pretty well for me, so far

    Yeah...I think I'm at the point now where I can just sketch it out and quickly grab specific reference as-needed, without getting bogged down by research or the need to render every last fold.

    I think with poses its very important to be able to 'feel' the the pose. I think that doing physical activities that force you to actually think about your precise body parts and movements helps a lot. Just simple things like how we shift our weight on our feet, something you do subconsciously every day, hardly ever think about it, that can really improve your ability to create natural poses.

    Thanks once again for your council, I appreciate it immensely.

    Looks like you're getting a good feel for the head structure, the second and third page of heads are great.

    Drapery studies coming along nicely. I would recommend making some refined rendered studies to further your knowledge, because drawing folds with line and with tone are quite different things and each method imparts another insight.

    http://www.thesartorialist.com/ has great photos of various modern fashion.

    Harder, stronger, faster, better!

    P.S.
    It's only just occurred to me that you have no digital pieces???

    No problem, brah

    Thanks.

    Very true about tonal folds vs lines. Right now I'm kind of trying to capture the rhythmic sense of the lines, and also focusing on the design stage.

    Gonna be honest with you, the people on the Sartorialist always look to me like they got dressed in the dark in a theater prop closet
    Sometimes I go to Style.com and grab a few runway shows or troll through some fashion blogs. Yes that's right I am a closeted fashionisto,
    now my shame will be known to all

    I will try, but I'm only 'human, after all'

    P.S. Yeah been taking a break from digital for a while now to focus on drawing. I'll come back to it soon enough...although right now my computer is in a different room than my studio...

    Well folks, this backlog is getting disgusting. I am now going start DAILY UPDATES again, until it gets utterly obnoxious.

    here's a rather blech start:

    Good studies. Careful with the eyes on male faces, large eyes and prominent lashes can quickly turn them into cross-dressers.

    Gonna hold you to your word on daily updates!
