2023/7/18. FINISHED!! I've completed the course of @Patrick Jones "The Anatomy of Style". I practiced every day for 30 mins and I drew any single drawings from his e-book. It took me almost a year. But it is so rewarding!! This is my last one for this course. Thanks Patrick and thanks to all the community for the important feedbacks!
Hello there! Here's my drawing which I very much enjoyed doing :). The rendering is not as good as I would like it to be, but for me the focus was on gesture and form, especially the torso and the pelvis area. @Patrick Jones, do you always draw on newsprint paper? I draw on standard printing paper, and I find the rendering not as smooth as in your drawing. I used Conté Pierre noire pencil. Cheers, Romain
Fantastic demonstration and drawing process! I'm loving the commentary and explanations that accompany these lessons. This is just the type of course I needed to jump back into drawing in this manner and shake some of that rust off. As someone who hasn't drawn like this since July of 2020, I was expecting a horror show but I was pleasantly surprised by the results I've got by taking things slowly, drawing alongside the video as you went through the various stages of the drawing. With still much to learn, I'm looking forward to what the rest of the course has to offer, here are the results of what I was able to achieve. Cheers for this Patrick! I'll be sure to look at the other courses you've created in the near future.
Thank you @Patrick Jones I could definitely see my progression throughout the workshop. I was using pencil at first because I was afraid of the charcoal but this last one I went all or nothing and what a difference it made. I took the risk as you said.
It's such a wonderful demonstration, thank you! I learned gesture drawings from Proko, and also love Glenn Vilppu's messier gestures, but have trouble understanding his thinking. Your gestures are a perfect bridge between the two worlds, and now I understand Vilppu's gesture drawings too.
Hi @Patrick Jones 😀! I hope this finds you well. I have just started watching the first workshop in this course - I can’t wait to get cracking! I was simply wondering whether the reference images you use are available for download. No worries if they aren’t. Thank you! Romain ps: may I send you a private message via Instagram with regards to your Anatomy of Style online workshop?
And so I've come to the end of the line, what a journey it's been. I'm stoked with the results I've gotten from these workshops, so glad I decided to take this course and that I was able to finish it. The overall video runtime might be 14hrs, but it took me considerably more to complete this in its entirety. Taking things slowly (or moving as fast as you're able without sacrificing quality or diligence) pays out in the end, as there's lots to unpack here throughout these lessons and all of it helps going forwards. All in all, great course here, thoroughly enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to hopefully taking the male counterpart to this if/when you ever get round to it. I'm very happy with finish on this drawing and glad I could end this series on a high note.
