Hi, I'm not an 2D artist or painter (sculptor) but these anatomy videos from proko have been my absolute favorite. Would going through this course benefit me as well? I really like the information but I'm not sure on how to translate the assignments from something done on paper to something done with clay?
Asked for help
For this lean and twist example, the first tutorial video draws the overlapping lines in a certain direction from this reference - yet later in the twist assignment examples video, we're asked to spot what is wrong and are told the lines should overlap in the other direction - I'm confused as to which of these we should follow
My first set of gestures, all about 30 seconds-1 minute. I had several other pages but this one was the first one where I felt like I was getting somewhere. I'm also using a dip pen, so I can learn how to have more control with that medium. Much harder than I thought it would be. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Hi everyone, I tried some 30s poses again, this time my approach was to basically not think at all. What do you think? What are the main aspects you think could be improved here? Thanks to the great community for all the valuable feedback one can get here <3
Hii everyone! I've tried sth new. For me at least :D 30s poses - from photo ref. :( - w/o using any construction lines/ LoA. So the main question will be: Is this gestural? At all? in your opinion. Pleeease critique this, thanks in advance, oke bye.
Hello, these are my most recent gestures (4th session). Image 1+2 were part of a 1h session after rewatching the first vid (didn't see the others yet). 3+4 after rewatching the first "Flow Method" video. Now that I look at it I think page 1 is alright, even though I do oversimplify. Page 2 is where it kind of starts falling apart for me. Maybe all of this new info overwhelmed me. I tried to apply "force" without really understanding it. I realized this after rewatching it. I then proceeded to ditch stuff like line of action and other concepts in favor of "force". Bad idea. It visibly decreased my confidence, which shows in my lines. Page 4 was, a bit better maybe? The 5 and 10 minute poses seem to be a bit easier to read, but the 20 min one felt awful to be quite honest. I will move on to the demo tomorrow and keep an eye out for stuff like how Stan does limbs and when to simplify shapes. There is also the issue of not knowing how to combine the concepts of Stan and Mike Mattesi instead of treating both as hard rules with no option to combine them. Well, I've got a lot to learn :) I am looking forward to the feedback. :0 (Btw here are some resources I use for practicing: line-of-action.com quickposes.com)
Hi everyone! I've been practicing gesture for a while now and wanted to ask you what you think of these. Sometimes the poses are still falling apart and sometimes the gesture isn't quite there yet. But in general, would you say, these lines convey a sense of gesture and/or weight? What do you think could definitely be improved? What has helped you to understand gesture drawing better (beyond just doing gesture drawing and learning anatomy/ perspective and stuff)? Looking forward to your comments/critiques! Thanks in advance.
Hello, i am new here :) Started to watch this course yesterday and trying to practice simple gestures. I am still bit new into learning how to draw i have around month behind me with tablet, before i never focused on how to draw properly, i just copied pictures i liked. Now i am trying to learn how to stand on my own feets in art. This is my work from today, i will be glad to hear some feedbacks. I put 2 minutes limit on each gesture.
While I did have a lot of fun doing this, I think the proportions are a bit screwed, right? I tried some forced perspective- foreshortening thing, but, imo, the 2 distal phalanges of the index finger are too big nevertheless? And the thumb's still too small? Highly appreciate your feedback on that matter!
