I've made these a while ago before watching the demo and now I can see so many mistakes that I've done and also after watching the demo. I think I will try to sketch more from different photos and think more about the flow and lines than about the contour
Here are my level 1 assignments before watching the demo. The boots were really tiring and I needed to be very careful with the laces, I couldn't use my whole arm for them. I still think they turned out quite alright, even though I struggled a little haha I would love some feedback!
on my first attempt I definitely felt like using the stump, and even though I was still happy with it I had already set up the goal of doing one after the demo and it definitely felt like I was noticing new things. specially transition in values and the difficulty of focusing on shape language rather than line language. Any critique is welcome :)
A bit late, but better late than never! This is my first pear before watching the demo. I think I chose paper that was way too soft for graphite pencils, so I had a bit of a problem with differentiating the values on my paper.
I have a handmade sketchbook with a few pages left blank. Here is my doodle for today. If you have time and patience, it is worth making such a sketchbook: You can open it perfectly flat, it has a minimal cost (if you don't use the most expensive paper), and you won't have a more personal one.
Jumping the gun. was an industry pro for a while then left to do something else…. Skills have atrophied….too much. Here is an attempt at the intermediate image… looking at it, it’s not much of a value study, more of a shaded drawing… Thoughts? hoping to get back into fighting trim. Looking forward to working with you all!
If anyone is interested in a study group, I can start a discord server were we can follow along with the course as the lessons come out. Comment below and I can shoot you an invite. *Edit* Sorry, not as discord savvy as I thought I was. I'll need you to friend request me, and then I can send you the invite link (has to be friends only). My code: Other Barry#8117
