I tried some more. I find portraits kind of boring. So I decided to draw PARTS of a composition by Josh Kirby. It was like a puzzle made of 1000 pieces. And it was fun!! It taught me so much about proportions, measuring vs. eyeballing, negative shapes, clean lines, etc. Actually this project contained many aspects of the things I've learned in this course so far. The best thing was to discover that I've improved in terms of proportions since the first project (simplifying with shadows and lines, see the weird drawing below). See the persons not-existing hands :D (not ready to draw hands and fingers yet)
Hey guys. I have a question regarding Stan's critique. So what is the point with 2D (=shapes) vs 3D (=forms) in this project? I wonder why Stan critiqued the 3D forms in the first critique and then praised the 3D wolves @ minute 10??Maybe it is my fault and I see 3D when we have 2D :) Can anyone enlighten me?
Hearing the instructions a second time, finally activated my discipline. With my first ones, I fell in the trap of trying to imitate the original perfectly. Which makes no sense at all in terms of sketching. Finally I get it (I think) and tried my best to sketch confidently the lovely LOFI-Girl. :)
#help can anyone explain to me the difference between sketching and simplifying? What is the purpose of them. I wonder if simplyfing is kind of sketching? Or does sketching begins when using searching lines?🧐 Thank you!
Definitely doing the lvl 2 project blind and the doing it again after the demo is the best way to do it. Here is my first blind attempt and then a second exercise after this demo. Any feedback is appreciated. Photo is from Kimson Doan on Unsplash.
#help 1. why is he looking at me so reproachfully and sadly? :( 2. why are my strokes so wild? 3. the project only taught me one thing: Impatience. 4 I need new pencils. In more than 2 thicknesses 5 I turned him into an elf. :(((( Please tell me that those feelings are normal. Hopefully, I will make you proud by showing talent with flying boxes :)
