Bean Assignment Examples – Tilt and Lean
this is the same vid as the last. just the first 14mins of it though. but same vid.
Here are my tilt and lean beans for the assignment. I tried drawing along with the video, but I think I still need to do more additional practice. Any feedback is welcome!
Hey! Here's my Tilt and Lean beans based on the figures from the video (minus that last one; didn't see it coming.) My biggest problem is knowing which bean will end up overlapping the other, as I feel like that informs whether or not the bean itself ends up being accurate to the figure. If there's anything else I'm missing, lemme know!
Tilt & Lean beans. Few questions I have... When the figure leans forward or backward (unless we are viewing the figures side) then isn't there a little bit of foreshortening since one oval is slightly in front of or behind the other? Also, sometimes I notice the creases in the skin on the model don't match the fold that proko draws in his example. I was trying to use the curve of the crease to help me decide which oval the folds on the pinched side might follow in the tilt poses... Anyone have tips on this bit?
Can anybody offer general tips on how to determine which part of the bean should be in front? I've also attached specific examples I had trouble with: 1.) It looks like she's sticking out her hips toward us, but Stan drew the top part in front. 2.) She looks level and not tilting forward or backward, but Stan drew the bottom part in front. 3.) Same as #2, she looks kind of level, but Stan drew the bottom part in front.
I tried this with the twist assignment, where I cover the right (guided) side of the screen while following along on the left (reference), and then go back and check my work by using the red line to mark the major differences between what I drew and what the guided video ended up with. I still get a little caught up in drawing an S when the video shows two Cs or I try a really constrained S instead of a C, but overall I think this was a good method and exercise.
Why is it that sometimes the action line follows the contour of each ball and sometimes it follows the gesture? It seems pretty abstract.
Hi, I thought I kinda get it, but then 11:24 happened and crushed my confidence. How the hell this line is going this direction? It looks like going outside of the body. I mean, I can see that her belly is kinda sucked in, but it doesn't make sense in context of two tennis balls in the sock. Can somebody explain that? :( I am so lost now.
Bean Tilt and Lean. This was pretty easy in contrast to the other options. So I will move on.
Looking for critics/tips! I sometimes have issues finding the correct overlap, especially when the body seems relatively flat/the two 'balls' seem like they are stacked right on top of each other. I understand that the closer ball (to the viewer) should have precedence/be on top, but would appreciate any tips/other ways to look at it. I am also brand new to charcoal and the methods of the pencil... am I always supposed to hover my hand across the paper and try to never place it down at all? I find it difficult to get smooth lines if I don't have a slight point of contact. Hovering the pencil at a level plane is tough! I'm sure this just comes with practice but am wondering if I have the correct idea. Is a minimal point of contact okay (the nail/tip of my middle finger for example), or should I strive to hover at all times and just improve with practice? Thanks to anyone who responds :)
Still trying to figure out how to hold a pencil... realise maybe I was applying too much pressure for most of these. Any feedback very welcome! Could definitely use some tips on how to get my lines more confident
Does anyone understand why the midline for the pose at 11:00 is an 'S" instead of a 'C'? The pose is labelled 'lean forward & tilt right' so I thought 'C' shaped midlines were used. I thought 'S' midline was for a twist.
