Art goal - is to be consistent and gradually improve while focusing on portraits. I’m all about the long game! And also I would love to feel comfortable drawing in front of people, and tell my friends I’m finally learning how to draw!
hi y'all, HELP PLEASE. Where are level 1 people supposed to quit? I missed where the stopping point is. Here's 3 hrs & 2 tries & I can't find the forrest OR the trees! I haven't missed any lessons, done all the assignments, draw on my own, etc & this is way beyond me. Don't get me wrong, I want to learn how to draw people, but this is crazy. What am I doing wrong? Thank y'all for all the help
Before I watched the demo I was lost. I didn’t get it. Stan makes it look so easy, as if he nails it on the first pass and I can’t do that and then I realized I need to go real light until I find my way and I learned so much watching the demo. I want to do all of these but I’m lost on number 12 and 14? If anyone can help with those. How do you make those shapes dynamic?
do we have to Master something before we can move on to another video lesson?🤔 I was watching your video lesson and I'm practicing drawing accurate proportions for 7 days straight, and I feel like I was making a small progress but I'm getting used to it. But, should I master matching the proportions first before I move on? or it is okay to move on to another video? Any answers will be appreciated!❤️
I’m glad I figured out how to overlay because at first I was very pleased with how the musketeer came out but I can see I was way off on the width because I eyeballed that part. and I did the demo with Stan and that was a disaster so I tried again with another portrait and I’m getting better but I need to measure more and drop more plumb lines and look for more relations. I’m going to keep practicing these, they are annoying but fun in a sick way.
I did this assignment again and it’s starting to click. I was having trouble starting with light and loose lines and breaking them down into simple shapes really helped. I then sort of piggy backed this assignment with the last with the master study and copied some work from Mitch Leeuwe used this technique and I’m noticing my line quality improving. Very fun! Critiques always appreciated!
Catching up with a quick study of Roberto De La Torre's Conan ink. 4b graphite on cheap-o printer paper (I need to prioritize my sketchbook more, the printer paper texture started fighting me toward the end.) Can't wait to do a bunch more of these, love Roberto's brush work! I really got a lot out of trying to replicate brush lines with graphite.
