I have now seen the instructions and made my best of it. Took a peek at the final correct monkey-shart. Questions: I wonder what kind of dark shading is it in the eyes, under the eyelid? Is the penumpra always only located to the cast shadow on the surface/like utside the figure?
Fun but also challenging. May find it difficult to decide where to draw the line. Question: is it an estimate or more definitive? Or to put it this way - how many level differences of shadow can be accommodated within the boundary? In my opinion, I prefer to mark only the darkest parts that are almost completely dark. How should I think? The pictures may not match exactly where I stood/sat. If someone can answer me I would be grateful! Thanks!
These were really fun! The garlic one was done on tracing paper over my original sketch, which I accidentally ruined with some spilled tea. I did not stop to establish proportions on any of these because I was hubristic and impatient, and some pretty egregious proportional errors resulted, especially on the skull. Oh, well. Critique would be greatly appreciated and is badly needed, as I don't feel confident that I understand what I'm doing.
To me, this course has always been about drawing the body from imagination, in the end. So I tried drawing 'muscleman' on paper quickly, without looking at any reference. It's not quite visible, but there are construction lines showing the skeleton underneath. I added the muscles on top of that. I'm sure there are mistakes everywhere (I'm especially not convinced of the shoulders and crotch section) but I'm happy to be able to do this after rushing through this course so quickly and only once. I'm sure to review all the lessons one more in a second pass to fix what I didn't get at first, and hopefully, it will allow me to grow one step further. Anyway, I have to say : this course was wild. It's a huge, awesome work that deserves to be applauded, and I certainly don't regret the money and time I spent on this. Big thanks to everyone involved.
