Hello, I would very much appreciate a critique of my muscle placement for the shoulder. Additionally, I struggle a lot with mentally imagining the box around the hip bone. Like, where do the corners of the box go? Would love and appreciate some tips.
Hello! I figured I would start having fun with my supplies by doing a skull study and some gesture drawings where I added some anatomy; still rough with anatomy, but the journey is fun! The tools I use are incredibly cheap save for the inking markers. My mechanical pencil is the regular BIC 0.5 HB, my wood pencil is a Ticonderoga #2, my eraser is the usual pink rectangle (dunno the name), I don't know sketchbook brand, and my inking pens are the SB and 0.3 size Faber-Castell. My sketches are not perfect, but I had a lot of fun! If you have any critiques, let me know! I'm still experimenting a lot.
Just doodling and playing is a great way to break the ice in this class. I mostly use graphite pencils and the ever-reliable Strathmore 400 series Sketchbooks. 2B was my go-to for the longest time, but lately 2B has felt "mushier" and I've been trying to find finer, harder pencils (I'll still use 2B when I want something softer). This was done mostly with 2H, and some Tombow markers and Prismacolor pencils-- which I rarely ever use, but I had them and the course said to play so I tried them out again and fun was had by all. I have a bunch of Pigma Micron pens that I like for lines and inks, various tortillions that I use frequently but don't know any technique with, and that about rounds out my toolbox.
Seeing how good everyone beginner here is makes me want to rage quit my life. I am literally the worst hand eye coordination in this course. I literally cannot draw a line and circle or anything. I hope I can muster a pear that doesn't give you all eye cancer. Fingers crossed.
I know it’s early but I got inspired by everyone..and the perfect reference picture Proko posted. So, I popped in my ear buds, played Game of Thrones soundtrack and got lost. Tried several mediums graphite mechanical pencil, ink and ball point pen. Any criticism is welcomed.
If anyone is interested in a study group, I can start a discord server were we can follow along with the course as the lessons come out. Comment below and I can shoot you an invite. *Edit* Sorry, not as discord savvy as I thought I was. I'll need you to friend request me, and then I can send you the invite link (has to be friends only). My code: Other Barry#8117
Super excited to start this course! I started learning how to draw 4 years ago self taught and because i wanted to run before i could walk i really neglected the fundamentals. So this will be awesome to (hopefully) massively improve what i am already doing.
