JamesSimons: Danke schön
Did some still lives, a tiny bit of perspective practice and some work on Pauls design
Still life of a beautiful man
adamsimons: Thank you
JamesSimons: Let's hope not
Haven't got a lot to post this week. Because I won't be posting all the awesome perspective practice I did (it's not awesome, it's hard and a lot of straight lines!) and the portrait maquette of Paul I'm doing isn't finished yet.
So here are some sketches, some from ref (photos/copies) some from imagination and a few for another project.
JamesSimons: That will do very nicely!
Not a lot this week. Finished my maquette(will post it next week, sorry) but was mainly drawing heads, trying to concentrate on anatomy/features.
adamsimons: That's terrible, thank you
JamesSimons: That's just as bad, thank you
Project and life drawing, have at it!
Photos of Paul (for the help he will provide, probably took way to long)
Drawing and flats
These sketches are seriously kick ass!
adamsimons: You're getting better!
JamesSimons: It is, isn't it?
tsabu: Danke schön
A bit of drawing, a bit of fluffing around and an end to my project!
Paul, not really finished. But I'm seriously lost with it so I'm done with him!
some sketchbook pages
JamesSimons: Right on!
Just Drawing this week. Drew some arms, worked on a project no one here will ever see and worked on some designs for a card (that you won't see either ). And some thinking
Studied some drapery this week, mainly from the famous artists course and put a few coins in the how to paint tin.
A Rockwell, A Photo
A Still life
And some kind of attempt to apply :/
And all the sketches.
Long time no see, feller. Usual painting studies are looking great, and did you make that bear sculpt? I'm pretty impressed if that's the case.
Mind you, I bet you can take your pencil sketches up a notch, I'm talking specifically about your head sketches here. Other than the last batch where you're paying more attention to the planes, I feel they all look a bit too similar, you know? Almost like you're sitting in a head sketching comfort zone.
Vary the size of your sketches, mess with line weight, some continual line drawings
heck, why not even try doing that multi-limbed thing Hogarth loves? Its a pretty fun way to feel how the joints work.
Figure sketches are looking nice though, reminds me I need to look at more clothed figures.
Ahh, I wish I could say something more constructive but that's all that comes to mind, really. Keep up the good work, mate!
JamesSimons: Body bag, check!
Naidy: Thanks. I did make the bear sculpt, it wasn't as useful as I had hoped, it got the job done though! As for the heads thing, I see what you're saying and I have some ideas as to how to tackle the problem, it's just not a chief concern of my at the moment. But it's definitely something to keep in mind so thanks
Much the same as last week plus some kind of study/illustrations in the style of, in this case a simple approach. Really need to make a decision on a project!
A few short master studies
A couple of photo studies
A still life
And my two style photo studies (a bit messy I know)
And the sketchbook pages
JamesSimons: You may have those silver feet, but I've got these golden fingers!
More of the same! pld: Onwards to next week!
Two still lives
The Famous artists course had some figures to drape at the end of the lesson I was following so I gave it a try!
And the sketchbook pages
I really like the clothing/fashion throughout the centuries page in that last update. Awesome.
Xamllew: Thank you.
Slow week. Did some sketching, trying to decide on a project. Got severely beaten by a couple of still lives and am slowly recovering. But the Olympics are on and i love the Olympics so it's not all bad
The two still lives that have my number
