I tried to focus more on the proportions of the face and not get distracted by the clothes. The right eye to me seems a bit off, the no eyebrows confused me a lot. Another major problem I always face is the placement on the page, I start with the right placement and end up somewhere else as I tend to alter the proportions quite a lot. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks a lot!
Master studies are something that I've thought about multiple times but have never had the courage to execute. I usually give up before even starting. I procrastinate it for days and then i begin to think why am I wasting so much time on this. So, i end up switching to another reference. How do you get over the initial fear of starting a sketch? With a reference as complicated as this one, it gets very daunting. My mind says, how can 'I' approach something which is this masterfully executed with the extremely limited skill set i have. I just don't understand where to begin. Even if i think about simplifying, there are too many things to be thinking about. Like with this one, i would have been confused with either to put down a circle for the cranium or simplify the contour using straight lines like Stan did. I understand that there could be multiple ways of approaching it but there's constantly a fear if what I'm doing is correct or not or why am i even trying to attempt something that is wayy out of my league. I'm sure i can't be the only one. Can someone help?
Study of David Malan's Artwork I can see the proportions are off, it usually is the case with me. Also, poor space planning. It was somewhat intimidating to start, I've never done a master study before this, but i enjoyed it a lot. I tried making confident lines, but i think i focus a lot on copying the lines instead of focusing on the technique and the essence. Critiques please.
This is the first time I’ve drawn from observation I’ve always used images. I think I performed poorly i have no idea how perspectives work I can somewhat figure it out through images, but i was committed to not use any pictures. And I couldn’t figure out how to match the angle of the camera with that of my vision so the perspectives don’t match in the two.
Did these on the basis of light and shadow, one with the same light source as the reference and another with a different light direction. Changing the light was very much of a challenge not sure if i did it correctly. Need critiques!
