My pencil sharpener broke so I ended up doing these with a sharpie. I'll get a new sharpener or make a sanding block and try again tomorrow. Lots of room for growth on these, but I like this approach. I'm going to be doing more these with my drawing group via Zoom on Sunday, December 3rd. If anyone wants to join us, DM me.
Did an exercise with simple shapes to understand the movements of the scapula. I did not add the spine of the scapula for the animated ones but will when I get the hang of drawing them. I think I made it too wide but I did learn a lot about the movements. Not sure if they are exact but I will revisit this when I grab some more reference.
An attempt of a nude pose from Channon. Not sure If I could pose nude photos here so I won't. However, after watching the critique video I think I'm starting to understand gesture a bit more. I will post more soon. Idk I tried to not do construction at all but when I don't I get messed up proportions, so Imma try and figure out how to do a little bit of construction but way more gesture to avoid the stiffness Proko talked about. The balance is a bit off but I'll keep that in mind for the future gesture drawings.
Nice, I can't wait for these set of lessons, especially the manipulation of the boxes. I have trouble bloating, pinching and especially twisting boxes. Meanwhile I will continue practicing my gesture drawings in preparation for these set of lessons. Thank you Proko.
Started drawing along at the end of the video for more practice. Learned a lot from this video. My thing is that I have a habit of sticking to forms more than shapes. Really hard for me to change that, but I guess with more practice I would eventually learn to do so.
Did some of them so far. I do a lot of ghosting lol, so I have trouble loosening up. Hopefully as I go on, I get looser to capture the rhythms more. I tried to put some more information into the poses from the anatomy course and figure drawing course, not sure if I succeeded in that but I had fun doing these. Will do more soon.
Here is my attempt of the assignment. I had to stop drawing lol I was getting way too into it. I was about to attempt drawing all of the wrinkles and stuff after I got the bigger shapes. I had fun doing this. I tried to eyeball this to the best of my ability. Took me around 3 hours.
Frog: I messed up the proportions so I had to try to fix it (Artist: Eliza Ivanova) -> Pencil Two Characters (Artist: xray.alpha.charlie) -> Digital Manga Panel: (Aritst:Gege Akutami) -> Pen Digital felt the easiest to do. I really enjoyed the manga panel. Creating line weight with the pencil was really challenging. If anyone has any tips on that, I would appreciate it. Really fun project
