Try to time myself with most of it, faces gave myself 20 mins max. Some 1 to 2 min gestures in there as well and some more finished stuff im working on.
Not all my stuff but give ya a taste Wingal and all.
Cool stuff so far man, keep the good work up
Welcome aboard! Not a bad start! heres a good gesture tool, it even has a timer! Looking forward to watching this sketchbook fleshout!
Nice job, it's not bad at all to study a variety of things at this stage. It all helps out in the end.
Wingal gave you a good site for gestures, however I've used it quite often and the poses get repetitive. Also check out http://lovecastle.org/draw/ they take a bit of the same stock, but I think there are more male poses.
Also, try starting off with about 10-20 thirty second poses (I do this very frequently aside from 1 min, 2 min and 5 min poses). I'd even go far as to say do about 15-25 15 second poses. Really push to trying to capture the essence of the pose quickly. Don't worry about making the anatomy even close to perfect. It's all about seeing the figure as one whole shape and not multiple parts.
For these, I suggest using printer paper or newsprint (you'd use this for figure drawing sessions). I just use printer paper now instead of a sketchbook for most my traditional stuff... because it's so much less expensive. I still have a sketchbook, but that's if I decide to draw elsewhere.
Ahah dropped my camera on hardwood floor taking these from my sketchbook D:, still figuring out how to work the damn thing, but its still in one piece and working it seems. Thought i would update what i was on the go with have some things on the go that's not worth showing but here's some quick gestures, and train design sheet i'm working on to put into Maya. Excuse the quality of the pictures, my camera took super light pics.
Rough sketches of my train design.
Then here's me working on the final, still tons of work needed on her.
Thanks all, leave the feedback! and will update when i get some more stuff finished. Peace!
