Here is my master study of Disney artist Ferdinand Horvath's beautiful drawing. I was fasinated with his every line, every stoke. What a master! And realised that this such a long, challenging but sweet journey for me. So much to learn! Any feedback is welcome!
You captured the likeness. Well done. But pay attention to your values. Your shadows are not dark enough. And values are not describing the shape. for exp: use values to show the roundness of the eyeball. Right side of the left eye must be in shade. And lips should be in darker values. Hope it helps. Good luck.
Please provide reference photos next to the bean drawing so we could see if you are describing the pose correctly. Otherwise they look fine, just keep doing more of them. And work on you line quality. Sometimes you have too many dominant lines especially when drawing full figure. Hope it helps.
Same for me. I think Drawabox's approach to drawing (sketching with ink) can be good for improving your capacity to visualize on paper, because it forces you to really think before comitting to a stroke. You'll want to get it right on the first try, since you can't erase, and that forces you to consider where you start, where you end, and what kind of curve you're going for. When developping new habits or replacing old ones, you usually need to really pay attention to what you're doing at first, until it becomes second nature. I suppose it would apply to something like this. But maybe someone has better ideas. I have to say, I haven't completely figured it out yet, but those things have helped me a little.
Hey Desmond, I really like the gesture you put into this drawing, nice job. As far as your rendering goes, what I notice the most is that the values are all over the place. The best way to keep that from happening, is to focus just on the shadow, no halftones. The way we determine what is shadow, is squint. What ever looks dark when squinting, is shadow. Then, you can look for halftones that help give dimension to the shapes. I did a quick sketch to show you what I mean, I hope it helps :)
