I drew these in these 3 days, yesterday I watched the critique video and then redrew the jaguar using proko's approach, but basically i drew this in a way taught by Araon Blaise in the basic course and thought about the shape first then structure. Feel free to comment and critique
Um this is not my first time to draw figure gesture. I ve been drawing spaghetti for 6 months, after the seal exercise in the basic course and mike and proko 's lecture. I think I have drawn spaghetti with better shape language. But sometime something seems missing . Could some one please help me with this? Normally I draw from naked ppl, but copyright is my concern if i posted here .
Please critique. the first page is the level 1 the second page has 1 more lvl 1 in the top-left corner. 'Not following the contour' is often heard when talking about gesture, I hope I didn't fall into the trap. For lvl 2 there are 2 from memory, the standing one and the top-middle one.
hi guys, i am trying to do wt proko suggested. This one takes around 8-10 mins. it was drawn a week ago, a study of line weight(@andrew_m_creative on ig) and trying to eyeball the proportion. The reason I drew this is because I found it so dynamic for a dude simple raising his wrists up. I dun know why at first but i still drew it anyway and now I know the reasons. The problem I have are 1st: should i consider all the negative shape (indicated with the lighter red lien)when I doing wt proko did at the end of the video? they are kind of random to me and if I consider them all, the drawing lose the flow that I like. 2nd: Any advice on my shape simplification? I am totally new to the whole design thing, and that confused me coz there are too many options out there... Much appreciated for your help
Could someone please critique these? I often found myself having struggles in seeing through the body to find the spine in front and lateral view. I also want to know whether my circles in perspective are right or not. After your critique i will do it two more times, see if any new problems arise. Thx a lot...
this is my assignment. Sorry for being a bit dirty on the page. lots of refinement. Took me 2 hrs work. Haven't used proko's method to self critique yet. Tmr or later will post some cars' drawing in the reply. @stanprokopenko will we have exercise /lesson talking about shape design? The previous level 2 project got me confused the whole design thing. I have done some master studies, like olaska, marc brunet, some disney character and pokemon, but it s still difficult to come up with a decent idea for designing shape by myself. Yeah I actually also done some flower drawing, trying to find some organic shape. Any advice on what to focus on for shape design?
hey guys I am new to this course may I ask what is stan drawing on the belly part? and Why he does that? Coz me personally saw some form on it but I dont think its so obvious. could i use a lighter line weight? And is it simply an artistic decision?
Finally have the gut to try level 2 and did some master study of @oleksandr_kayda. I love his or her style a lot, way too expressive. In my work, I tried to exaggerate parts that I think is iconic to a horse, but some of them turns out to be creepy, sorry about that. lol.
I finally catch up to the latest assignment. Here is my work. I found that lots of people have drawn a simpler shape than mine. Quite frankly, I dun know if I have simplified it enough but I used a lot of adding. Hope I am doing the right thing and using the right organic shape. I will do the level two after watching your demo.
the third and forth pics are pre-demo, and the first and second are post-demo. After watching the demo, I started redrawing the penguin and some pokemons (they are cute and have a variety of shapes). Its still hard to get rid of that perfectionism mindset, but I did start focus more on drawing the big shape and visualize the hidden part in the pictures after watching the demo. Construction line is another things that I am not sure if i should use in this exercise, but it did help me to put things in the right spot without drawing bunch of messy lines. By the way, have anyone faced struggles on hovering? I always struggle on drawing on the right side of the canvas, coz I drew with my right hand. Please let me know if you have any techniques :)
Pic 1 and 2 is before watch critique and demo, lines are ....... pic 3 is after and some other pics that I found online. lines are much cleaner but some are still terrible... dang this csi project is hard but also funnnnnnn.. the lion pic is the best so far, coz I think I understand the CSI thing much better. Others are just the result of trial and error. By the way, using straight line first to draw the block in shape is really helpful
I join the class late. Here is my first try and my second try. I drew the second one after watching Proko demo. Um, I think my proportion is slightly better in the second one but my shading is kind of off especially for the forth value. And I am not sure if I got my transition shadow right. I jotted down most mistakes that I had in the first one, please let me know if I got anything missing
