I made a quick drawing to see the difference between no line weight, only thick outlines and thick lines where I would put them. The fourth is just adding colors because I thought why not. The dwarve is "Grumpy" from Snow White. Next is the rhino from Stan but I need more time...
Here are my assignments. I HAD to go with a Hollow Knight theme, after Proko mentioned bugs! :D Image 1: Multiple sketches + final piece Image 2: Progress (rough sketch, then clean lines) Image 3: References I had the urge to add some color in the end, hope you like it.
Hi, here is my try on the assignment. I did all three of them quickly because I thought it would help the "sketch" feeling but I ended up with skewed proportions and in my opinion too squiggly lines. I don't care for the proportions but the sketchyness and nice strokes are kind of missing I guess. Some parts I do it but find it difficult to do it when drawing smaller details. Hard to draw with the arm when drawing an eye, hand or any small details. Let me know what you think.
Here’s my crack at this week’s assignment. It was pretty fun. I thought it was cool, how each reference kinda of had me figure out different ways to approach the ‘problem solving’. The first image of the snail had me drawing mostly in C and S lines as the shapes were very rounded and the drawing was quite fluid.
First go at this lesson. I want to do a combi of accuracy and speed. 30 minutes this one. Proportions are abit wrong but its a snail so ok. My lines are meh i guess. What is wrong with scratchen of you can erase them after you pull your fluid line?
My biggest take away here is that I need to take more time to do this properly. I thought I took too much time on my attempt at this until Stan mentioned that the lay-in alone took him 1.5 hr . I loved that he showed that he also makes proportion mistakes and fixes them. Maybe he did it on purpose to show that it is ok to make mistakes? On youtube we usually see people throwing down these amazing drawings instantly without a need for erasers and this gives me the impression I just suck since I redraw every line at least 3 times :-). I am just a beginner so I assume my time can easily double to get the same accuracy. I usually draw illustrations/cartoons as 1.5hr is alot of time for me with full time job and 2 baby's. I will redo the exercise during the weekend.
More difficult than I thought it would be. The light area with only 3 values is hard. Dont like the paper texture coming through. Didn't want to use a blender. I will try again on printer paper. Used 6b for both shaded regions and 2b for middle tone and hb for lightest
Haven't done figure drawing for a while, fun to do some gesture practice. These are all 1-1.5 min gesture poses (influenced by the Force method), critique and advice welcome! I struggle with proportion a bit still, I'd love to be able to do cleaner lines, but I think for now I'll go practice some 'beans' to get familiar with the torso again.
My first post and my first try at gesture after watching the intro video. Purchased the course so hope to see improvements. Would be nice to see some evolution in my drawing. I draw a lot but usually just copy from famous artists like frazetta and kopinski whose style I like . I feel like I'm not learning much that way so I purchased this course and want to do the exercises step by step. Not used to drawing digital but tried it for posting purposes. Some 30 seconds gestures included. Did more off-line which I actually prefer. Anxious to see the next video and learn how proko does gesture drawing. Best regards Steven
