That's my bud, that's D! Keke
That alien guy with a shiny staff, has neat feet i must say!
Well i know what's wrong about those heads, it's actually the way you draw them, you MUST apply the knowledge from loomis, or other books from those early stages, to be honest i forget about it very often myself, but i will fight with it from now on my weapons : Patience, discipline.
Now, lets get to the point of what i mean, you must remmember to analyse the thig you draw as a whole, here's the example
What you did, and we all probably did while studying from bridgeman and othe books, we just COPIED lines, I've understand it finally, but better late than never.
It's like following a path that someone else has walked before us and we are just trying to fit into his footprints with our own feet. Sure Bridgeman and loomis are great, but for the sake of the cause we must study from life.
Now mr http://www.iainmccaig.com/
told a story from his own life on one of the gnomon videos. "In the past i used to always have alot of other artists works on my desk, especially Rockwell's, one day i had to draw grass and i've searched for how Rockwell drew grass, and then i realized i have a large field of grass in front of my house i went out. I drew grass from life for the first time, and then i never had other artists works on my desk ever again" now the sentences may be abit different but you get the point. From now on I'll also stop redrawing Bridgeman or loomis, read it, observe sure, do some sketches occasionally, but gett a huge mirror draw yourself draw your wife, draw your lovely daughter
Sign ip for life drawing classes. Draw other people, do guirella sketches, don't get compromised!
That's my plan also, i can only wish for enough strenght for us both to survive this journey and be great artists some day, NAH I BELIEVE IN THAT!
Here's a motivation buttkick from me, as the one from you also woke me up from beeing a looser state of mind. Art unites!!
P.S i've started saving money so i can go to Cali and study with ya ! ; )
