I did this drawing after going with my friends at a party. I was drunk at the time, but I think that was an advantage.
heyo! Well I made this sequence inspired by an episode of Love death and robots, I really would have liked to be able to refine it better and add more frames but I was very short of time hehe, I hope you like it:)
This is how I see these interactions actually going down half the time. Safe for work/youtube version attached in a reply to this post. This one was really fun guys! I learned alot with this one i think!
Asked for help
Bot flagged my last post for some reason. Taking a crack at this. Any tips on how i can improve my shadows/shadow colors?
I am nobody who can judge, but I'd say the shadow next to the body could be sharper and less round. unless that is wet sand, as a shadow I feel it's too much of a blop and less of a zick zack bam I would expect with such a strong highlight.
Hello Elvis_Murray,that's a pretty good painting,I like the warm light and cool shadows you implemented.On the topic of values,I actually think it's really good,I can see the form quite well.Honestly the biggest critism on value I can give is that the shadow beside the crocodile (the one on the ground)Feel like it should be a bit more cool just to be more consistent with the alligator shadows (Kinda like this John singer sargent painting)and honestly that's more of a warm and cool problem) I guess the other crisitism I can give on value,is that the scale on top of the alligator feel like it should have a shadow beside them,considering how strong the light is.I'll also say the teeth on the alligator feel like it should also be more cool. But other than that,good job,please continue,we really wanted to see how you will use this skill to make your own art.
Hey Elvis, The thing I notice the most is that every element in the composition is separate from all the others. The tank, guy, mountains, wall and sky all take up their own space. This flattens the composition and makes it look like nothing is relating to anything else. This is why we want to overlap the elements in our compositions so that it gives it depth. I did a quick diagram of your painting to show you what I mean. I hope it makes sense to you and is helpful :)
Working on vehicles, illustration composition and values.
Hey guys, what are some things that i could do to improve my vehicles? What are some things that i could do to make the composition more interesting? Thanks in advance, hope everyone's having a good 2022 so far!
Proko Community Book and Resource Suggestion Thread
We've heard from Marshall and Stan about many of the books that they cherish. Now, i ask you, the Proko community. What has helped you along with your artist goals the most? What are some of the resources on your shelf or in your digital bookmarks that have been super helpful to your growth? One , idon't see mentioned super often, that pertains to Figure drawing, is the book Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Michael Hampton was very helpful for me along with Stan's course. The book leans towards Bridgeman style imo but has more clearly defined anatomy than the bridgeman stuff for identification purposes. Really helpful primer before more complicated anatomy is learned. Another favorite of mine is Freehand Figure Drawing for illustrators by David H Ross. This deals mainly with a version of the Figure mannekin. I eventually moved away from this version of the mannekin but i found it helpful to really get my head around the idea of a figure mannekin and figuring out how to best get comfortable with eventually making my own version that worked for me. To throw in a non book resource, I will suggest drawabox for anyone that yearns to learn construction drawing. I found it to be the most helpful resource other than the Scott Robertson How to Draw book in figure out how to get well on my path to drawing from imagination. Well community, what has helped you? What are some resources of troves of information that you've been dying to tell everyone about?
Here's my entry. Mid-sized Cargo Aircraft using the Beetle, Grasshopper (locust?) Airplane and motorcycle references. This was real fun to do! Good luck everyone.
Hey Elvis, This is really cool, you really made that gun look heavy. You want to make sure though that you maintain the perspective through out the whole drawing. Also, keep an eye on your anatomy. I did a draw over to show you what I mean, I hope you find it helpful. Keep drawing :)
