For this project I sketched a pig. There were a couple more reference photos that I used, but I could not relocate them. I did use the photo reference to sketch from observation as I studied the pig. Then, I played around with a couple different ways I would like my character to look on the page. The third photo is my first attempt at drawing from imagination, which I dislike. I did not really try on this sketch, especially on the legs/hoof area of the pig. The fourth photo is a second attempt to draw from imagination, which I like a lot more. I feel that it has more character and interesting shape. I continue to struggle with feet and hands of animals/people, something about the small details get me. I also have trouble with loose sketching still, most of the start of my drawings start with light chicken scratch and it will take practice to develop a new habit. Also, I am still learning to grip my pencil correctly, I have held pencils in an incorrect grip all my life and still find myself doing it sometimes when sketching. Anyone else have this issue?
Finally, a bit caught up. So much to learn!…but overall happy with the attempt. Im sure they as long as we don’t quit on ourselves, whatever our level is, a year from now we will all be able to look back and see how far we have reached. Keep it up everyone!!
Did some beans and compared to the video as I went. I don't know if I don't understand Stan's rule about corners and twisting forms overlapping or if he doesn't follow his own rule, but I overlapped forms the opposite way that Stan would do it about 80% of the time. It was getting a little frustrating
How would you get started putting out a web comic? What are the basics a noob should make sure they are doing, whether that's art wise or story wise or promotion wise etc, and how would you try to gain a readership? Thanks!
Haven't drawn in a while, and I usually don't post anywhere, but I need to get in the habit for both so here goes. Just followed along to the video today, but I'll start using other references tomorrow. Going to shoot for 20 a day to start. Feeling pretty rusty and messy, 😂
Hello Mr. Finch! If you're not already going going to talk about this, I'd just like to hear what your first course on proko is all about and what you would like students to get out of it? Also, what are your plans for future courses and instruction, if any? Thanks a bunch! I'm really looking forward to your instruction! I've been wanting to get into comics, and I think you're an amazing teacher and artist.
