My first attempt is this incredible Wolverine drawing from Ryan Benjamin. Any critiques would be very much appreciated. The thickness of his contour lines are so varied, ranging from absurdly bold to literally no line at all. I especially love the claws how he leaves some long lines entirely to your imagination.
Some more practice. Some proportions off, and some stiff lines when I tried to darken up the “right” lines, especially in the hairy parts. But overall, I think I was much looser with these sketches. And they were super fun to do!
Started with the hand (couldn't help adding some Spiderman webs). If anyone has feedback on line quality, I'd appreciate it. I'm not totally clear still on what is meant by "confident lines." I set a rule for myself on this one not to erase anything, as I know I use the eraser way to much. It was a good exercise. You can see in here that the curve of the thumb was initially off, and the middle fingers were too long at first, but I'm glad I just sketched over it rather than erasing. There were some lines that I committed to too quickly though, some proportions look off to me. Overall though, pretty happy with it.
