What is a cheek!? I mean...really! How far back from the bridge of the nose are the eyes in profile? Nobody gives you a measurement for that. And for that matter what's up with that band of flesh near the bridge of the nose? How sloped is the female forehead? These details drive me bonkers.
2023/6/14. Good morning everybody. Here's my latest illustration (it's a concept for a card game). Thanks for your comment and advice. For the timelapse video click the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLHHOZAhLoU
So here, the line babbling baby trying to babble like the sage old masters of drawing. It messed up with my head. But it was inspiring and helpful, maybe I'll do one serious study like Stan did, this are all too casual. I like both grunchy and smooth lines, I did a little bit of both.
I choose Dave Malan. I think there is beauty in Simplicity, I love the simple yet elegant style of his line drawings. I am wondering, if the homework is to copy an artist is it okay to take some liberties? I wanted to add eye lashes to the right eye, even though Dave Malan did not.
Had a lot of fun looking for things that got me excited to draw. I love Gibsons light lines for the contour of the face and the thicker lines emphasizing the volume of the hair and wish I had an easier time replicating them but it was a little hard with a fine liner. The face I have looks a little more Ghibli than Gibson but I am not mad at that. Bridgman's arms are beautiful to look at and have such an amazing flow to them. Seems that the weight of lines in Bridgman really focus on showing shadow.
To not further confuse my images… I added a bit of weight to the rhino back leg and saved it as a png… so it can be viewed larger…It is funny, once i see it posted I do realize that with the light more from the lower left the back end could be darker too… very interesting to do this imagining the light from a different place.
2023/3/25. Good morning everybody. I've just finished the outlines of my latest illustration. If you have any advice for making it better, please let me know! I'm starting the coloring tomorrow and I think it will be ready for the next week.
