Day 6/14 I went WAY out of my comfort zone today and drew a car. I am horrible at drawing vehicles and was hoping I could get some critiques and tips for how to improve. Please don’t hold back, I really want to get better in this area of drawing.
Day 5/14 I went to the St. Louis Art Museum today and did these two studies of some of my favorite paintings by Zorn. Kept them very small and semi fast, since I didn’t have a lot of time, but I thoroughly enjoyed doing live master studies in front of the actual paintings. 10/10 recommended
Tried this once, but I felt like I got way to caught up in the details, so I did it two more time, trying to simplify it to basic CSI lines. I’m open for any critiques on how to simplify better, or if you notice something else to critique.
Here’s my snail attempt. I definitely see some problems with proportions, but I really wasn’t trying to focus on that too much. Mainly just worrying about those CSI lines. I’m pretty happy with how he turned out. open for any tips or critiques.
Sharing all the 4 images - tried to understand structure for snail and camel - was finding them too difficult to draw otherwise. I am trying to focus on the line quality keeping in mind that shadows will have thicker lines and overlapping forms will also have thicker lines. I was struggling where both these happen - for example in skully's nose, which is in light but also overlaps with the left eye - I used thicker lines for the nose and thinner ones for the left eye as the nose is in front of the eye in the image - but the light and shadow scales are opposite here - nose is in light while left eye is in shadow, so the line weight should be opposite to what I did? Not sure.
Wow Guys! You make it look like this is an advanced course... Anyways here are my attempts at level one. I did this digitally, because that is what I'm trying to learn. I started at the laces of the boots, but I noticed proportional errors, so I stopped. Tomorrow I will either redo the level one or attempt the level two, so any feedback would be much appreciated.
I love earths world!! It is so useful to find great and interesting references. Another place I like to go is a website called line of action. They have all kinds of references for people and even hands and feet too. It’s definitely worth checking out if you haven’t been on there before.
