Hey folks! I'm way way behind, working on catching up (hopefully by the next project. Wanted to take some time to work on this one of course - Here's some seals, 1-6. I'll come back with some more (maybe a couple times), but if anyone wants to hand me some critique it'd be much appreciated. Understand if everyone's moved on from here.
Long behind on this project, catching up - I'd definitely love critique on this, though of course I can see the main stuff that's off, which should improve a little after doing this more. I think the biggest issue is just how to set up my work space. The image is on my monitor in front of me, but my paper is on my desk, flat, and I wonder how much that very small change in angle contributes. anyhow, any pointers would be great! thanks
Animal Shapes - Just did the first examples. Did *abysmally* in choosing the right space for the sketch, nearly all of them go off the page/overlap, very sorry about that. -_- Played around with some of them, but I'll do some more and include them here.
Followed along with this and did my own - *seems* like after this and after the critique video I have a better feeling for how to do these studies, but I can't quite be sure yet I'm executing well - obviously I'm off on a lot of these lines, there's still tons to learn, but I dunno does it at least look approached well? - feeling better but also not terribly confident about it and I'd love some critique.
Thank you so much Stan! Definitely appreciate the look even if it's not quite what you were looking for. Had a lot of trouble with them given how dang good those artists are ':D but yeah, I'll definitely give them another go-round. or two. or three.
If anybody is still looking for references there is a series on Youtube called The Sketchbook Series by Trojan Horse Was A Unicorn, lots of great artist showing their sketchbooks and opinions, and at the end of the interview they do a quick sketch so you can actually see their masterful use of line in action 👌
Please forgive my proportions, I don't have easy access to a printer, so had to do it myself (I used the photo, didn't copy the line art) - think they turned out okay, though obviously the 2nd one had much less room. Anyhow I'll keep doing these exercises and adding here, this won't be only attempt.
So I did the assignment wrong - oops. Note to self: don't go off of memory, re-watch the video before you start. So I got all the Reference photos, did studies of each of those and then did a from-imagination one at the end. So, close, but not quite. All attached to this are my studies
Robot one - I did the other two yesterday, but they turned out like garbage - I'm going to redo them soon and include them here. I know my proportions are way off (and the hanging thing is particularly messy...) (Finding it hard to do smaller lines in this style, so everything got gradually bigger as I went) but generally happy with the feeling of the lines, especially in the head area.
