Bean Examples – Tilt, Lean, Twist and Foreshortening
Mark as Completed
Trying to get used to twists and turns, first time doing these types of beans so any critique would be welcome :)
here are my first attempts at drawing the bean in the first set of examples. I’m still trying to figure out the various movements and folds of the torso. I hope to improve with more practice this week
Almost did not want to post this. First attempt at these beans and it is a Struggle! #4 & 6 are very different poses but you can’t that from the beans. I will have to rewatch the video a few more times and see what I can learn..
I think I’m getting the hang of it thought the twist motion is hard to draw for me. Critique please
Do you think I did the Bean practices right? Please let me know any areas I can improve on :) Thanks~
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.
Some bean practice. About 1/2 way through the examples. I first did this exercise when Proko put these on Youtube some 9 years ago or so. I didn't think I would have any trouble, but it showed me that I don't exaggerate poses enough. Linework is getting better since I switched to digital only. Anyways, critiques always welcome.
Hmmm... bean salad. I honestly liked drawing these, though I did feel like I've exaggerated a bit too much on some. Gotta practice the twist a bit more (no I won't dance) Critique is always welcome!
In this one I think the model is not twisted enough as to see part of the front. Instead, the model is showing her back, what is not shown in the bean presented. Am I right, or the bean is correct for the sake of exaggeration?
More beans. Really having trouble with the relative placement of the two ovals.. is the pelvis oval suppose to follow the contour of the buttocks?
I've drawn 6 beans and would like some critique as to what might be wrong or what i can do better. I dont know how to organize pictures but i hope you will be able to see which bean corresponds to which picture.
I went almost through the entire course and now I go back through the videos and I try different exercises - Here I'm trying to guess the bean and I'm expanding it to a whole figure drawing. I don't know how much OK these are, but as far as I couldn't even draw a simple gesture at the beginning I think I have some progress. I still struggle with measuring and finding the correct proportions but I'm on the way. Sorry for the bad picture, but my baby is sleeping and I hurry to draw as much as I can while having this precious time for myself.
