For this lean and twist example, the first tutorial video draws the overlapping lines in a certain direction from this reference - yet later in the twist assignment examples video, we're asked to spot what is wrong and are told the lines should overlap in the other direction - I'm confused as to which of these we should follow
Hi Dwight, Nice portrait. If you draw a center line on the reference it runs diagonally from top right to bottom left On the drawing it's a bit more straight up and down. This makes the nose and mouth look a little too far to the right. Also the nose might be a tiny bit too long. I often rush the early 'mapping ' stage and make the same error. Hope that helps.
My entry for 'favourite book covers'. One of my favourites from h.p lovecraft 'the colour out of space', ink and promarkers.
Hello everyone. I recently finished Life of Pi by Yann Martel, and I knew that I had to use it for my inspiration. It's a really great and plenty famous too. I definitely recommend this book! As you can tell, I don't really do digital, (probably because I don't have it. :I) but I worked really hard on this, and I included the colors I used. I would look cleaner as digital for sure, but I'm trying not to dwell on that fact. P.S (stands for "Post Script" btw) This is my first time participating in a challenge and I loved it!
Hi all, this is my submission for the April Proko Challenge. I decided to make an alternative cover for a Stephen King book. Pretty hard to pick one because there are so many classics to choose from, but I went with ‘Elevation’. It’s a fairly recent novella about a man who weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. He also steadily loses weight, even though he doesn’t look any different. This isn’t a horror story, but rather a beautiful tale of acceptance and overcoming prejudice. If you haven’t read Stephen King before, I think this novella is a great starting point! I also edited it in a mock-up, cuz it looks really nice 😂
Hey everybody, Here is my submission for the April Proko Challenge. I've been relistening to Lovecrafts work recently and thought he'd make a good subject. I based my design on the woodcut novels of Lynd Ward. Hope you like the result.
Hi Wenhan, They look pretty good. Looking at the refs, maybe on the middle drawing you could show a bit of ribcage top plane and pelvis back plane. It would provide a bit more visual info and make the pose more dynamic and interesting. Check out Stan's tips on exaggeration in the gesture drawing vids. V useful!
Hi Gonzalo, Remember to tick the 'Post as help request' box when you're posting stuff. It's easier for people to reply and it's also flagged as 'asked for help' so you're more likely to get feedback. The drawings look good. It's clear what the model's doing with their body which is great. The only thing I'd suggest is to watch Stan's gesture videos a few times and note the kind of lines he uses, specially for limbs. He has some good tips about avoiding 'snowman effect' and how and when to use C curves and S curves etc.
