Suncut, it is a constant battle. Sometimes I do 12 hour days easy, sometimes it's a battle to get 6 done. Becoming disciplined takes time but with determination and some sacrifices a lot can be achieved. Surely you can do it
You are dead on about the cast being a bit too wide. It's a little heavier build in my version ANyways a good lesson to learn in keeping more attention to the proportions. Of course I could've erased it when I noticed it but that would not have made sense really.
Next time I won make that mistake Like the great Nicolaides said "one must make thousands of mistakes from which to learn from " or something like that. I have quite a bit of mistakes behind and I've learned a great deal from every of them
I did go to Ateneum in Helsinki every other thursday but the lighting is pretty bad and they only do short poses. And since I can do the same at home with my girlfriend I ditched out from that. I am looking for a place where it would be possible to draw long poses but it seems super hard to find any as i am new to the art scene and seems like the scene for classical realism isn't that big in Finland...
I think there is some life drawing somewhere in Espoo too and someone mentioned that was it SOK's S gallery has some as well. Super hard to find any information about those for some reason.
It wasn't really about it being boring to draw myself it was more of not having a workable technique and I was kinda all over the place at the time and I wasn't able to come back to the same exact position too well.
THat is a great tip! Seriously, thanks a lot! I'll definitely put that in use in the future. Also the reason for not doing self portraits is that I will rather use a real model to draw a portrait... which I haven't done in a while. Need to do one of those
Josef, yes Vilppu it is. You are absolutely right about that. I've actually been afraid of doing that because the results were so horrible but now what I've learned lately has made me realize the stuff I can do already and I'm not afraid of working on it and even it still looks bad I don't care anymore THanks for the heads up, I need those
THanks for dropping by my sketchbook and giving tips, I really appreciate it!
