Thank you Stan for your critique. I will go practice for thousand times more. Ever since I discovered Proko and this course, I started to feel maybe one day my dream of being able to paint anything I like would come true. Drawing is the stepping stone! And now doing the assignment and practicing drawing is my method of mental recovery after a day of busy work. I respects you, Marshall, and Jeff. You not only teach drawing knowledge, but also try to help us beginner seeing a bigger picture.
Wanted to challenge myself so tried the overhand grip. Still getting used to it but really enjoy using charcoal pencil. Also, tried shaving charcoal pencil for the first time today and on man they are so easy to break! My heart broke when the lead broke. T^T Looking for critiques~
2 weeks ago I struggled so much with the Pelvis because I am bad at Perspective. But Marshall's Perspective course really saves me!! I spent 1 week going through his course (1994) and did exercises suggested by him, like, drawing cubes, box form play, etc. And I can definitely see improvement. I am not scared of Perspective any more, and in fact, now I enjoy it. Here are my Pelvis drawings. I know they look off but I figured it is because I didn't think of the foreshortening. Let me know what I can improve! Any feedback would be appreciated!!
Can anyone explain to me how you decide which way the tilt lines overlap at an angle straight on like this? first pic is prokos example and second is my attempt. I dont know how you can tell the difference in a pose like this. Thanks.
Truly inspiring! This demo has provided an in-depth explanation of Pro's thought process when doing the creation. And it really really helpful to beginner like me who has no clue of the direction. Feel I am getting a hang of it. I am going to explore and keep trying it. Thank you Proko!
Attempted the Camel after watched the level 1 demo, and the Skull after the critique. Kept reminding myself that the goal is to practice drawing confident line, not to draw a perfect picture. Yet still focused too much on the proportion and had the tendency to erase and redo. Note to myself: 1. Use the "Envelope" method and map out the proportion first. This way have more control and confidence to put down lines. 2. Visualise the line to be put down. Don't draw faster than the brain. 3. Use the shoulder! Using wrist results hairy lines. Use the shoulder! 4. Practice! Practice! Practice!
