Another study from the masters. This time I used characters I love from movies (Oz and Labyrinth) and from one of my favorite artist Jean-Claude Mézières (Valérian). I did squelette from memory. Sooooo hard! My fellow learners, you have to try this. it's a good exercice...
It is an interesting exercise. I tried to make lines more gestural (looser). For the moment I have not worked on other angles, but that will come. It's so much fun to study beautiful creatures like these!!! I LOVE seeing the work of other students, it's stimulating!
Study and sketches of the muscles. Tried some learning the tools in digital. That's why it is shaky. I tried to apply muscles over studies of the skeleton too. Will practice from imagination now. Till next time, enjoy the path of learning everybody!!!
I tried to do the exercise from my imagination and found that I couldn't remember anything, so I studied the references a bit more and it was easier to do. I tried to go back and forth between imagination and reference. It helps me I think. The messy thing in the fourth image is that I'm trying to go more gestural... I don't know if I'm on the right track?
here are my attempts for the first assignment. I tried different things: wasp, sloth, squirrel, chameleon. But I remembered you said it could be anything, so my mind chose a balloon baboon! hehe On the other hand, I don't remember enough the anatomy of the baboon... :) I really hope to improve the dynamic side. It's like my brain is always stuck at the static conceptual point! I think this course will help me!! Thanks @DavidColman!
