Line Master Class Heinrich Kley dancing elephant and David Malan ladies face. I've never worked with cross hatching before and was surprised at the effect. I can see how different types of lines can make such a difference to our drawings. Totally enjoying this course.
Heya everyone! Guess it's time for master studies! Took time to search for reference but went back to the Watts skull since it has a lot of line weight/type variety I could really learn from! Plus I was feeling bad (to the bone) today :)
Tried light and dark and added some coloured graphite pencil to see how it would look. You can't see much difference really just a hint of colour. I haven't really used them before but I had them and thought I'd give them a try.
Tried to make a puppy + nietzche + c.g jung. Didn't make my drawings sketchy enough and spent too much time undoing and redrawing lines and I don't think it was a good use of my time. Dog on the right was the final sketch, but I was too tired of this assignment to add any details to make it more 3D. I'll try to remember the instructions better next time.
Did a portrait exercise... I would love to get critical feedback from someone more experienced on what I need to improve. My drawing feels "off" somehow, but I'm having trouble seeing where the issue is - is it the accuracy of the block in? (I am trying to measure carefully maybe not doing as accurate a job as I need to be) Is it the value? Or the shape design? I'd love some feedback on what to focus on improving. Thank!
Although I'm starting from 0, I tried my hand with the second challenge as well. I may try to make it up for the model in the future when I've improved by drawing him again. A tip: I've found that it's best to first draw the outline using my lightest pencil (B), then filling out the darkest bits (here: most of the hair and the nose holes, using a 4B in my case), and then moving again from the lightest to the darkest parts. That way, I get a feeling for what the different shades of black are going be as I keep drawing, so I can adjust on the fly.
more CSI practice. I’m really struggling, not sure how to do this without plotting every point and basically doing a connect the dot or else end up with something completely out of proportion. I couldn’t add the picture, the file was too big.
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.
Well I do need to catch up fast... It was busy at my work and yes I did draw every day but I have not found time to post. I have not yet seen the demo videos and maybe I am not to late for the correction. Unfortunately I did not spent a lot of time... the laces I may need to redo. Started using too many lines in the snail... The camel I did twice. Skelly I have not yet even looked at...
