I broke my leg a few months back and began to learn to draw to pass the time.

This was after Bernie Wrightson who is an absolute master and I am very humbled through this process. I was thinking I was going to pick up drawing where I left off 20 years ago! Haha! This was the best I could do. I worked really hard on this. At first I made so many searching lines that were dark and just didn't show any dynamics in the drawing. Then I took Stan's approach and instead of making it perfect first past I used lighter lines to start and went over them and also used the gum eraser to lighten things up. I don't know if I truly learned to do lines like Bernie. I tried to do a cross hatching of Frankenstein and it was a disaster. I am no where near that level yet. I did this with pencil and I think he used ink with a brush.

After watching this I am realizing I have not explored the pencil enough in terms of the grips and different lines it can make by adjusting accordingly.

Tried again post demo. I only re-did the light and shadow one b/c I felt like it was the more difficult one to achieve. I feel like I don't quite understand when the line needs to be thicker vs. darker, but I think I'm getting there

I think when we learn about value the thickness vs darkness and light will make more sense. Nice lines!

How do you make the lines of the original line photo lighter for printing purposes? Also, how do you take the original photo and turn it into just lines? I wan't to do more of this to practice with other photos and with photos I've taken. Do I need a certain app?

Good day! I noticed the vid just yesterday, i guess i had notifications off... But this is something I am constantly working on. I used to be a fulltime tattooartist, so this is something I have tried to push from day 1. 🙈 At the moment, I am trying to work as parttime tattooer in the "new-school" style which has huuge amount of different lineweights, some colored lines, some huge black ones. Here's some I have been working on lately and studied +photos of the aquarium reference (drew with pencil at the location, added colors and lights at home): But still, I try to get time and do the rhino ASAP. Thanks for looking, happy spring to ya'll! ☀️☀️☀️

This is dope! I think simplified it looks great. It's all there, the lats, the traps. The muscles of the right arm could be adjusted a bit. Pop that rear deltoid and maybe add some brachioradialis for the forearm. I'm somewhat of an anatomist by trade (med school and massage school), but I'm nowhere near being able to draw to this level yet so I'm not sure I this input helps or translates.

I may not be the best help but I think you should exaggerate your gesture line more. Like, go way overboard with it and then sale it back. Also practice curved lines. These lines look a little tense. Hope that helps.

Drawing from observation (my reference sketches) look so much better than my final imagination project. I was just thinking so much! This was a fun process. I wanna keep working on this character. It's a sculpin. I'm a fly fishing guide in Montana and I think it would be fun to create a sculpin character and put it on merch.

I don't feel like I'm pressing hard but it certainly looks like it. Would it be beneficial to take step back and look at the drawings or would that make it worse? I know we aren't on proportions but daaaaaaaang. haha.

Lost it on the mid-tones and lights. I worked from the 2 dark tones and got a little lost after that. I should have quit while I was ahead. I think I went a little too long with it and got tunnel vision. Looking forward to the demo.

I'm late to the start, but here's a pear! I've always struggled to get a smooth finish when shading. Any tips appreciated :)

I found smooth shading comes from using the tip of the pencil more in porous paper and just being patient with it.

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.
