I’m here trying to get better so that when I get better I can get better.

Asked for help
Reilly Figure Drawing part 1 Didn’t catch the arms being way too long until I was finished. I thought Erik’s drawing thinned Yoni’s Bulk down too much so I wanted to go the other direction and Bridgmanize it. I think the legs and chest barrel were successful but the arms belong on an orangutan. This exercise also showed a big weakness in specific muscle structure and form (pssst… it’s the arms…) Critiques welcome. What else is off and how do I correct it?

Very happy this course was made. Planning on watching, then drawing along with each lesson and then venturing off to use the Reilly method from reference with no instruction.

This is tougher than it looks! Not sure if I need to be more loose or more precise, but I don’t think I’m there yet.

This looks like a game level. You fly down in to the misty canyon with the horrifying horse heads and at the bottom is a scary, low visibility level.

Hi everybody! My submission for this challenge, a chance meeting of two creatures! :) I don't know what to call them yet but I'll go with Birdhopper and Airhorse for now. :D

This is fantastic! I imagine the bird hopper flying a little clumsy, like a bumble bee or a gronckle dragon.

My first two submissions were created using my daughter and my wife’s favorite reference pics. This one is from my favorites. Because, well, I’m in this to make me laugh. I hope everyone participating enjoyed this as much as I did. Cheers and good luck.

My second entry was created with my wife’s favorite 3 of the reference photos. She saw the final and said it was so unexpected and not in a million years and so on. I on the other hand thought to myself, before asking my family to pick their favorites, “Those 4 swords belong in the 4 arms of that grasshopper” This challenge is full of crazy nonsense and I love it. Great job so far, everyone.

This was a ton of fun! I had my wife and daughter pick out their 3 favorites and I plugged away at creating creatures from their choices. This one is my daughter’s (11yr) picks and this design was auto pilot from the moment she picked. I’m a bird lover and especially the ones with corky mating dances, so most of the sketch phase was working that out. I settled on the boys popping their flower collar and the girls flipping up their skirts. There had to be an under-waterfowl trait because of the jellyfish component and the red fluff ball on top of the flower felt perfect for the head. The other entries I’ve seen so far look fantastic and it is exciting to be a part of one of these challenges again. More entries to come, good luck to everyone!

I went to my first live model figure class last night. Sets of 30 seconds, 1 minute, 3 minute, 5 minute , 20 minute and then a long pose in 3 20 minute chunks. The first pose was 10 minutes as a warm up, which I thought was strange. Then moving to 30 second poses I felt made the 30 seconds even harder. I like the quicker poses much more because they are more dynamic. But starting off slow and then kicking in to high gear was jarring. Many of the people in the class were very new and they were all worn out by the end of the long pose, which finished 20 minutes early. Everyone else took off, but I stayed to render the long pose. Our model offered to keep going because we still had time and was excited to be creative with more 30 second poses. Huge motivation to grind this learning because she posed her ass off and I want to capture things like that much better. Many fun. Much challenge.

Imposter syndrome hit hard on this one. A few months between the stuff on my desk/in my office and the bird drawings due to fear of failure. It was much harder for me to keep the shapes more simple than it was to follow the organic contour of the birds. The help I need is: Should I do this one more time with different household objects and different animals or move on to the next lesson?
