I am facing a challenge: my sketches after the demo are more static than before the demo. The reason I believe is that I used CSI and a "quick sketches" mindset before the demo and used short "scratchy" lines after the demo to try to replicate the interesting shapes Stan creates. Unfortunately - mine don't render as good as his. I feel like I can either draw movement with very basic shapes or static drawings with interesting shapes. Any tips on how to avoid making the confident CSI lines look static when adding the detailed shapes? Thanks!
Thank you Stan! Your critiques help me a lot! This time I tried to measure the big shapes, and eyeballing the rest details. And I feel more free and calm in these two new practices.(Also quicker then before) Thank you for taking my nerves away. Btw I used a Transparent ruler instead of a pencil to measure this time.
As a level I and a beginner, I found this a little overwhelming. Just trying to dredge up an artist I thought I had any chance of copying was a big challenge to start! And sorry to Marc Chagall, dude, but you looked the most copy-able for a beginner - so here was my very first-ever attempt - my focus being entirely on line value, thickness, etc. (and not proportions - because now that they're side by side, I can see that my lady would be buying a smaller bra size than Chagall's gal). I guess he was going for shadow with the darker thick lines? The dark lines are very dramatic and exaggerated.
Day 6/14 I went WAY out of my comfort zone today and drew a car. I am horrible at drawing vehicles and was hoping I could get some critiques and tips for how to improve. Please don’t hold back, I really want to get better in this area of drawing.
