I want to quit
Athul Krishnaadded a new topic
Every cell in my body wants to quit drawing. I can't remember why I started drawing in the first place. I'm a college student and I've been drawing for three hours max a day for at least two years and I've improved a lot ,but as I keep going it's getting harder and harder. I don't think I have it in me anymore
I think those are very good. The only thing is that they are a little too detailled for gesture drawings, there are too much muscular shapes. Try to find the flow of the limbs. Some great exercises to transition into the anatomy course are the robo bean and mannequinization. Good luck
Thank you , I'll do my best 😊
Hey Athul, These are really nice drawings, the proportions are good and they feel solid. That said, I think these are not pure gesture drawings because you have added anatomy to the contour. That's not to say that they do not have gesture because they do, but gesture drawings start with a line, either an "s" or a "c" shape from top to bottom of the pose. Then that gesture carries into the limbs and so forth. What you have though is nice solid figures. So, I think you should step up to adding some light and shadow to them. Not full on rendering, just a core shadow and some tone to fill in the shadow. I think this will really elevate your drawings and will be a good transition to full rendering when your ready. I did a couple of examples over your drawings. Now, I don't have the reference, so I just made up the shadows based on experience, but I think you will get the point. I think your drawings will look really good like this and hope you give it a try. I hope this was helpful :)
Thank you for your detailed reply😊. I really appreciate it. I’m definitely going to try out your suggestions
5 to 8 minute Gesture drawings
These are my recent gesture drawing's . I've been drawing gestures for a while now What should i do next, Am I ready to start learning anatomy ? How can I improve ?

I wish I could paint like that 😍. Awesome work (❁´◡`❁)
Hello!!! I think something that I learned that really helped with my portraits is that the 'white' of the eye is very rarely white. Its often quite a dark tone, and then there might be shadows over the eye from the lids, nose or brows that darken it more. Save your lightest tones for highlights - maybe a tiny dot on the eyeball, or the lids! Keep it up :)
Hello there! Really nice drawing you got there! I love how you rendered the hair What i think you can work on is to learn the skull structure as it helps to define the shape of the head! And i think you should be braver in choosing a darker value since the grays here still look pretty bright. Like the shadow around his neck could be darker and you can make your character pop out more by making the background value darker Hope this helps!
Thanks for the reply . your right, I was a bit scared to use darker values 😊. Helped a lot

Nice work, @Athul Krishna! I am not sure what style you are going for. Your proportions look very good! My first comment would be to have more contrast. You need darker darks and lighter highlights to keep the painting from feeling flat.
