    Most Recent life drawing project/assignment. I had colored him with soft colors, but wanted to push the colors more. Unfortunately, I messed up while doing that and just ended up scratching the colors in like you see now. It doesn't look too bad, if I say so myself. lol. I get to work on it some more tomorrow.


    Now starts the Workshop drawings... about 2 days worth of it. heh.

    A gesture drawing I did, but because I liked the way it looked, I decided to make it my logo of sorts.

    : ) And thats it for TODAY atleast. (edit: the pictures photobucket deleted are uploaded thru the attachment)

    Old drawings that I had in my portfolio that I forgot about. Oops!

    Except for the Vein-y hand drawing. That one is fairly new.

    well...what can I say? I was so wrapped up in the life drawing, that I forgot about my "creative" artworks. lol. Everytime I looked at other people's sketchbooks, i kept on wondering what was missing.

    Anyways, to point out a few things. The artwork titled Snipe Shade is my character design sheet for this Transformer I created. The version of it "super-deformed" and colored was my semi-first attempt at using Corel Painter (meaning, just playing around with Corel).

    A little extra:
    1st real try. Drawn by Bananasmash.
    2nd try. Drawn by LionaSkycat.

    All were studies on how to color a metallic looking surface. The shine, texture, ect. (had permission from artists)

    Then the rest are mostly robot designs. With one illustration about a phobia of pickles! It's actually a real thing, I saw it on youtube. lol. One of my robot character as a human. And another of a beat up Van - another study on metal.

    Nice stuff Crimm. I think my favorite post is #19, very nice studies. You're exploring a lot of different media, that's good to see. Was your model posing with a dog?? That's pretty cool, I don't know of many life drawing classes that bring animals in. Animals are important, especially for animation, and they often go overlooked. Keep up with the figures, and a few more still lifes wouldn't hurt. That one with the pony (is that a rocking horse?) has nice contrast. Spend a little more time on the shading, perhaps - that one above it feels a lot less hurried. As for the figures, keep working on finding the shapes within the figures. I can see some good construction in the drawings in #19, but you seem to lose that in these newer ones. They're heavy on contour. Still nice, but work more on getting the volume and proportions down. How are you measuring proportions?

    Gestures... have you tried going into public places and drawing people? Good practice for drawing quick and focusing on the overall movement of a figure.

    Good work, keep it up!

    Yea, for the last couple times the models brought in their pets. The other model had a flying squirrel pet, but it kept on hiding. hehe.

    Post #19 is my latest stuff. The posts after that were just old pictures I had in my portfolio.

    And I gotcha on the volume stuff. I keep trying to work on that.

    As for the proportions, I measure by "placement". lol. Which is my own way of comparing the symmetry of the models body. Elbow is the same level as waist. Hand on level of shoulders. Right hand a tad longer looking than the left. Basically I look at her on a grid scale, and then draw it out according to what I see.

    All very relative, I suppose. I can't ever understand how to do that arm length, pencil measurement the others do. So thats what I've been doing for my proportions.

    Gestures? Ya know, I tried doing that yesturday. But It's so hard! I keep worrying that the person is gonna look at me! hehe, ugh. I'll try again today.

    Thank you for reviewing my work! Good tips!

    Hey Crimm! These life drawings are looking great--keep at it! You're definitely improving. I also like that you're doing quick animal drawings from life alongside your figure drawings; these are great! Keep drawing from life--quick drawings, long drawings--whatever you have access to.

    Watch how much you use exterior contour lines in your figure drawings; see if there are places where you can draw through the form. When you look entirely at the exterior line of the model, the image tends to become a little flat. Maybe doing a drawing where you don't allow yourself to pick up your pencil would help you with that. (This is only something that applies to gesture drawing)

    In your longer drawings, it still seems like you're relying on the original line work to describe the shape of the figure. In these, value should be telling the entire story. One thing that will help you with that is trying to make sure that your darkest values are black and that the lightest values are white. I know that people continue to say this, but it really makes a big difference. For instance, my best friend at Ringling was really proud of this drawing. That is, until he really tried to up the contrast, and he produced this. See the difference that value can make?

    I'm looking at this drawing here... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...o/DSC03460.jpg
    Some of the best advice that I've ever received as far as portrait drawing goes is the establish the values of the face before adding specific features. For example, add dark values for the eye sockets, beneath the nose, the cheekbones, etc. (Make sure you're paying attention to your light source and not just creating these shadows from imagination). This will really help you understand the form and keep you from relying on lines.

    I hope that helps... Good luck with Ringling, CalArts, and LCAD!

    Yokai-chan, eh? XD
    We actually seem quite similar, switching between intense figure drawing (though no such class exists in my LOLCATHOLIC high school, hence I improvise) and cling to the wonders of comic/fan/smexy anime art. The man life drawing and the last funny drawing are some of my favorites (though I like your knack for mecha as well). His pectorals could use a bit rounding out, with less harsh shading, but less white around the beginning of the shadow.
    Sorry to comment on your older stuff, but I really liked it.
    And your future improvements are very noticeable too.
    Glad you're apllying to Ringling.^^

    Crimm - on proportions, yours is a good and valuable tactic. There's really no exact science to measuring proportions while you're doing quick life drawings. But the pencil method can be useful. Behold as I type a lot of words and hope that they are coherent and useful. This may or may not help you, but if it doesn’t, don’t worry because you’ll be using pencil measurements more in art school. Here’s the jist of it:

    Your pencil is basically going to serve as a ruler. Hold out your pencil at arm’s length, perpendicular to the ground (I recommend tip up, eraser side down). Pick an area on your subject/model that you want to measure – say, from the shoulders to the waist. Hold the pencil so that the tip aligns with the top of the shoulders, then move your thumb down the pencil until it is level with the top of the waist. The tip of the pencil and your thumb should now match the length from shoulder to waist.

    Now you will use this measurement to compare another area of the body – for instance, from the gluteus area (the butt) to the knee. The idea is to find parts of the body with similar lengths and proportions to aid in matching proportions in your drawing. Let’s say that the first area you measured, from shoulder to waist, is the exact same length as the thigh from the rear to the knee. You now know that in your drawing, the thigh should be the same length as the torso. Go to your drawing and, with your pencil, measure your drawing’s torso from shoulder to waist. Take this new measurement and line up the tip of your pencil along the thigh, from the rear to the knee. Use your pencil to mark off the length.

    You can use this process to measure most every proportion on the body. There are some general rules – for instance, the foot is usually the same length as the forearm. But every body is different, and by using your pencil you can get a slightly more accurate (though not perfect) measurement.

    You can also use this method to measure the body’s “head” length. The classical take was that the human body was eight heads high – so if you stack 8 heads one on top of the other, the human body will be the same length. In reality, most bodies are anywhere from 5 to 7 heads high. It depends on the individual. You can use your pencil to measure the model’s head, and then determine how many heads tall the model is – and by extension, determine the head length from neck to chest, from chest to waist, from waist knee and knee to foot.

    Hope this helps.

    wow, you guys.. Thank you for all of your help! Sorry I didn't reply right away, but when I read your comments, I was inspired and went straight back to work. lol!

    I believe I still have the problem of outlining too much, but I keep myself aware of that fact much more now. Especially after taking Rendering class. Really teaches you to draw light first.

    And! I've started to use that technique of pencil measuring. I didn't undersand it before, but now I know how to do it. Your explanation, Nilaffle, helped to round out my understand if it too.

    ---As it turned out, I wasn't able to apply to Calarts or Ringling. Thanks to my under-estimation of the deadline and my low self-confidence. har har. I'm really sad and mad at myself for missing it. But all I can do now is still apply for LCAD and keep working to apply again for Calarts/Ringling.

    I'm fixing up my portfolio for portfolio day, so this is whats going on now...

    Old Version
    --Sketchy Sketchy-ness!

    New Version (still working on)
    --Sketchy Sketchy-ness!

    In anycase, let me upload my recent work.

    - Practice animation

    - Name Animation

    - Final animation for class.

    All these animations were made in Corel Painter 10. I'll never animate on there ever again. lol!
