Bean Assignment Examples – Foreshortening
The beans felt really hard at first but they got a lot easier by the end. I found forshortening the most enjoyable, whether it's because I was more comfortable with beans by then or something else, I'm not sure. I thought it would be the worst part for sure! Twists are the most challenging for me.
Here is the foreshortening part of my bean exercises. I will have to keep practicing for a bit longer before I’m ready to move on to the critique video. I’m really enjoying the learning process of how to draw these beans.
And that’s foreshortening! Definitely gonna have to go back and watch that section again because this went poorly. And advice is appreciated!
8/6/22: Draw-along to the video. I went faster today, so the lines aren't as clean.
Beans all over the place… it‘s amazing how this exercise made ahuge difference in my next figure drawing!
Hi All, I've been doing a lot of gesture and beans lately and even combined the two. I'll do a 30 second gesture and follow up with a quick bean. Here are a page of beans (one of several that I have done) and a few samples of gesture with bean. Look forward to your feedback. Thanks.
Any critique very welcome! My first try on iPad... I’m still struggling with the gesture and I haven’t practiced for a few months now... I don’t like fb so I’m really glad for this site - I really want to get better so any feedback would be much appreciated!
Interestingly, these were more easier to understand compared to previous poses. maybe because though these are extreme poses, they were easy to see the bean.
Bean Foreshortening. I felt like I could have exaggerated the foreshortening more in many instances.
