Yeah not happy with this one. This was like my 10 th attempt at the pinguin. I seem to stay stuck in the 'lost lines' stage here. Cant get the form right and I keep adjusting, therefore making the lines darker and darker.. How to come from this to the searching sketch lines. I thought if I just keep trying over and over, but after the 10 th one I m pretty done :p Anyone else has this problem? Or knows how to get past this?
This is what I like about drawing digitally. I can make my "tought vomiting lines" (love that term) or make some rough layout lines with a broad brush and than put that in the back with low opacity (like putting a piece of paper over it on a lighttable) and go over it with cleaner, now more confident lines. Does that make sense?
Im having a hard time keeping the proportions right with these swoopy lines, the envelope-thing might help me a bit, good advice! Im not ready to share anything jet because i know i can do it better than what I've done so far. I think the step from drawing a simple pear to these boots was a big leap. The snail was a bit more beginner friendly for sure.
I had 2h to spend on all of this. So, given the time it took, I'm happy with the result. For the camel and captain skull, I did it traditionally on paper. For the l boots and the snail, though, I went a bit crazy with my tablet and tried stuff that hasn't much to do with the assignment. But still, it's about lines. :p
So, this one frustrated me quite a bit. For the first two I just couldn't stop adding unnecessary details. I also couldn't bring myself to draw with my shoulder or my elbow. I almost gave up, but then I decided to draw on bigger paper instead of A4. I tried to be looser with my lines and simplify more, but I'm not sure if you can tell. I'm still rather happy with the last ones.
