Hey! Here’s my crosshatching assignment. The first two pics are the block-in and my version of crosshatching - I should have kept it simple in hindsight. On the third pic, I made the changes according to @Dorian Iten‘s correction. It better communicates light this way definitely 👍! Thanks, Dorian 🙏😊!
Hello, Here’s my light probes assignment. Pics 1 and 3 done on Procreate and 2 on Photoshop. @Dorian Iten, it was lots of fun and a nice opportunity to try out digitally on both - thanks. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Romain
Hi @Patrick Jones, I am in the middle of studying shading, but I am still following your course and more particularly the video 'A world of enchantment', and I did the attached drawings - the vast majority of them from reference photos. I am struggling with drawing features of the face on a full figure, especially from difficult angles and when the head is fairly small. Has it ever been a struggle to you? How did you go about drawing them better? Thanking you in anticipation, Best, Romain
Hey there ! First off, this assignment really piqued my curiosity and the more I was going along with it the more interesting it got. I am happy with the final result. The first pic is my reference which I started to ignore when it came to drawing the cast shadow - too much reflected light. This first drawing was made with 2H, HB and 2B graphite pencils. The values at the bottom are the ones I used for step 3 (value plan). Near the end, I darkened the background on the lighter side of the egg to make it pop out more. I had a second crack at it with H, HB and 2B pierre noire pencils (last three pics) following the same process and ignoring the reflected light on the cast shadow from my reference. Charcoal is quite unforgiving if you go too dark too soon so it was like walking on...eggs. Thanks @Dorian Iten for this assignment. Any critique/feedback would be much appreciated and I look forward to what lies ahead in this course. Romain
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
Still exploring (and having a lot of fun!) , focusing on gesture and keeping my hand going. I can see myself gaining more confidence with my initial lines and being more accurate. I'm also pushing my drawings a bit further than @Patrick Jones to add structure having focused on the upper-body and the upper-back muscles with Stan prior to this course.
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?
