I found this task quite difficult. I attempted to draw the first two pictures by hand. For the last attempt, I used a grid. Since I'm running a bit late, I'll have to take the photos with my phone at work because otherwise, I'd have to capture the images without natural light. A colleague was really enthusiastic about the task and the Proko page. The only question she had was why the sink was placed in such a strange way. I tried to explain it. I think she might find us a bit peculiar :D
I'm sorry for the little rant I'm about to leave here, you're content is excellent and out of any question, I absolutely love it, but the website and media player is making watching the videos way more painful than it should, at least in an android phone with Firefox. It freezes, jumps randomly, crashes... I don't know if there's something anyone can do to make this better or if this is the place to complain, but man... I want to learn but sometimes I can't because of this, and it's frustrating 😭😭😭 please let me know if this message doesn't belong here and I have to make it go though another channel 🙏🏼
Hey, here are my drawings. I tried using the overhand grip for this task. In the beginning, I found it quite challenging to control the overhand grip... well, it's still very challenging. I also didn't really have a plan on how to start drawing the individual body parts(1st picture). I revisited the video "Draw Any Pose From Any Angle," and by the 12th drawing (2nd picture), I could at least see some improvement. After that, I tackled one chapter of the video each day, took notes, and practiced what I learned. The pictures 3-6 are my latest drawings. I noticed that I started taking more time to create them, sometimes up to 20 minutes. This time will likely become shorter with more practice.
Here are my drawings. First, I chose the artist Jake Parker. Although I could be more precise in many places and the proportions are not quite right (especially with the shark), I am happy with the first page. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for my second drawing. I had difficulties right from the start in creating the drawing. When I mirrored the image, I was very surprised how unsymmetrical the head had become. I was aware that the eyes were different sizes and that the shape of the face was incorrect. However, I did not realize that the differences were so significant. I had even greater difficulties in drawing the hair. On the one hand, I found it difficult to keep track of the individual strands of hair, and on the other hand, I had difficulty controlling my pencil enough to make the lines. I quickly got headaches and became careless with the drawing in order to finish it quickly, which ultimately led to even more frustration. I was mercilessly shown that I do not have even remotely enough skills to solve this task. I actually did not want to upload the image, as it feels like a failure. However, I am uploading it in the hope of getting your help. I feel somewhat disoriented and do not know what would be most useful to practice. I am very grateful for your advice. ChatGPT helped me with the translation. I hope it is understandable :)
Hey, ChatGPT helped me writing this text :) Here are my drawings for the task. On the left you can see my older attempts and on the right my latest ones. I would appreciate any suggestions for improvement. Thanks <3
Hey, my English is not that good. So I tried to translate my text using 'ChatGPT'. Hope it makes some sense :) I've only done the beginner tasks so far, but I found the advanced task so interesting that I wanted to try it out at least once. For the first image, I chose a goldfish. It looks like I dressed the fish in pieces of cloth. I was very lost in the design process and much of what I drew is quite illogical, but I had a lot of fun during the process. I also tried some other animals. With the otter (second picture) I tried to pay more attention to creating a nice overall picture and to draw my lines more clearly. After all the attempts, I realized that I became more relaxed while drawing. The mouse is my last drawing. Before I started looking for reference pictures, I had a clear idea that the mouse should be an "adventure" or at least fit into that theme. When I made a sketch with a mouse with one eye closed, I immediately had the association with the character "Guts" from the manga series "Berserk" by the artist "Kentaro Miura" (an absolutely outstanding manga! Unfortunately, I cannot recommend it without reservations because its dark and explicit content traumatized me a bit at the time. But from my point of view, if you can handle it, it's the best manga for "Dark Fantasy" genre.) Although I know that many proportions are not correct, I am surprised how much I like the result. I see good progress in my work and understand how practicing with the previous drawings affects my current skills. It is very rewarding and motivating for me to notice this. Please write your critiques. I am very grateful for your opinions.
This task is a real challenge for me. I find it difficult to draw 3 dimensional objects. Does anyone have tips on how I can learn to draw objects better? I'd hugely appreciate constructive feedback for the homework. Thank you :)
