Hi! Been rather busy as of late. I started this lesson last week and desperately wanted to finish this before more work came in, but I rushed it near the end. Not quite satisfied as I still don't really know what I'm looking at yet, so I plan to redo this lesson. Any feedback and honest critiques are greatly appreciated! All previous assignments are available on my FB page here. Thank you in advance! https://www.facebook.com/saved/?list_id=4730838993696368&referrer=SAVE_DASHBOARD_NAVIGATION_PANEL
Hello there! I have been drawing geasture and the bean for some time now but i took 2 week hiatus because of school and I wasn't able to practice much or draw at all. Today i finally got back to it but i can see what i need to improve, but i dont think my own eyes and brain can help me much so i would really appriciate some critique on these drawings. Have a good day everyone!
the past 3ish weeks (i think): Got really tired of just doing anything for the past few weeks so the practicing's slowed down. That doesn't mean it's stopped though, so here's everything from the past few weeks. I find my 2 minute gestures are definitely the ones that need the most help, as most of them look really clunky and flat for some reason (and have always done). I also find that the try it, copy stan, try it again method only works for so long. Eventually (since there's a finite amount of poses stan has provided himself drawing here) I'm not even looking at the pose since I pretty much memorized how stan does it. That's why there's such a massive difference between sketches done in that method and the ones done on line-of-action, where I don't know what's coming (though admittedly the lighting in line of action is also pretty awful). I find I often get the gesture and contour mixed up. It confuses me since I get the concept of them being separate, but in many demonstrations I've seen Stan draw the gesture OF the contour (I'm not raving on Stan we love Stan) and it confuses my brain. The limbs are still the biggest problem. I feel it's because for many gesture drawings I've seen done the limbs are two s curves (especially the arms - the legs have more defined separations), and these 2 similar curves end up killing the gesture as it makes it nearly symmetrical. This is especially a problem when the limbs are completely outstretched. I'm sure it is just a matter of practice, but I've been doing these 2 min gestures for months now and the problem is still there. Damn arms. I also tried playing with the size of the gesture drawing, after Bradwynn mentioned sizing in a "recent" (more like the last time I posted) feedback on my 30 second drawings. It definitely felt more free drawing a gesture drawing that was the entire page, and it helped me realize it was the smaller gesture drawings that were probably the problem Any feedback is appreciated! @Liandro @Diego Lucia @Jesper Axelsson
