Asked for help
This is a pretty rough sketch. Igot this idea sponaniously when browsing through my Music albums. So I tried to capture my thought s as fast as possible. My intention was to emphasize the upper part of the head and the lower lip while reducing the length and size of the nose. The details have to be adapted of course but I think I can go on with this sketch
This is my next try of thumbnailing. This time I took Mike Akerfeldt. I really tried to take care of time and just focused on what I had in mind. Maybe the sketches doesn't look good but they contain the things I wanted to try. The final sketch (the big one) is something I wanttake to Abstraction. Any feedback is appreciated.
After valuable feedback, I tried again with singer Dani Filth. My goal was sketching fast but still keep the important information readable. Important for me was that the basic head shape becomes visible and the distribution and proportion of the facials can be recognized. After trying different head shapes I stick to the squared shape and tried to make it more recognizable. All together I spend about 25 minutes on this exercise now. I looks pretty messy but I want to work it out later and for me it is understandable.
I felt more comfortable this time. It was pretty fast sketch not thinking too much about it. I appreciate any feedback.
I am still getting stuck in the same headshape. Maybe I should create a template with different headshapes to experiment on.
I started my first "subject". This is my best thumbnail so far. I cleaned it up so that it is more recognizable. But it takes me still very long to finish a thumbnail.
I started now with the caricature course and got to the zhumbnail stage. I just drew along while Mr Court Jones is explaining. Afterwards I tried to color it with the knowledge so far. I just wanted to know which decisions will come up during the painting process
