(studies numbered for ease of reference) this was such a fun assignment! lineart is my favorite part of art to do, and when I saw we were going to do lineart studies I knew immediately I wanted to do haruichi furudate. I like to say that furudate's art altered my brain chemistry permanently LOL. for full transparency: for studies 1-7 I went over the references using a red mono-liner (so all a single pen size, no line weight, line thickness, or line transparency variance and also no taper), deleted the reference image from the canvas, before lowering the opacity to 10% and doing the actual line studies. I did this exclusively so I wouldn't get preoccupied with copying the proportions since that's something I struggle with. I really wanted to focus on the lines themselves. for 8 and 9, because I didn't have any other reference to work with (reasoning explained further down) I instead pulled out a sketch I was working on to see if I could apply the techniques in 6 and 7 on one of my own drawings. for 10, I pulled out a sketch of a redraw I was doing of a panel from furudate's manga "haikyuu!!" since I was planning on using it as a sort of study of their lineart anyway! it was a lot of fun. studies 1-3 and 10 are of haruichi furudate, all from their manga "haikyuu!!" studies 4 and 5 are of tatsuki fujimoto, both from his manga "chainsaw man" studies 6-9 are of bo/chelicerage, an artist who deleted his entire presence off of the internet. the reference used was unfortunately the only art of his I managed to save. I wanted to do more studies of more artists but I sadly just don't have the time!
this is probably just me, but I didn't find it entirely clear what we were supposed to do for the straight taper warm-up (fourth image). everything else was stuff I'm familiar with, I just gotta learn to do them more consistently!
this was a lot of fun! ended up using the secretary bird idea a lot less than what I had in my mind but I suppose I should still keep the sketch I made of it here. also copied the pose so my apologies if that was wrong.
day 14! I'll be honest, I don't think drawing every day is for me. I barely have enough spoons in the day to do basic, necessary tasks, let alone draw every day as well. that being said, I will definitely try to at least make it a habit to draw more often.
