I had a tough time with this, I think I got thrown by the fur and trying to keep it to just lines. But I was able to settle down and push/pull some features of the face to come up with some different ideas.
Sloths are hilarious, so I really enjoyed studying more about them. Loved to hear some feedback on where to improve even more!
I am reposting my drawings here as I see everyone posted here instead on the other video.
Latest Praying mantis. My lines are getting better the more familiar i get with the subject.
Decided NOT to be lazy after all and did a new project after watching the critique. I like my quick, gestural photo studies but with the final duck character I had some usual issues like making the head too big and I could've pulled in the chest a little bit. I usually do these edits in Photoshop if I want to create a final illustration but it would be nice to learn to not do these mistakes to begin with....
I know I'm really late, but I used this to create a "non-virtuous" character in one of my paintings, and it took me a while to get through it.
I made a new try after Ive seen the critiques. This time with rhinos. I made studies and drew rhinos after reference first this time. And after that made explorations til I found my character. In the reference pictures the grown up looks tierd and grumpy. And i wanted to do grown up standing in the rain. But in the references the children seem so happy so i wanted to a child character as well. After i got my two characters i started to explore and test different poses till i found something I liked.
Gave it a try again but Im nit sure I ended up super frustrated and unable to find any direction
This is my sister work for the assignment! Looking good she’s got some work to do tho
Attempt #3 : went back to attempt # 2 and tried to stay looser but retain good line quality. Taking a break and coming back to it, also seems to help. Hopefully heading in the right direction.
Another very helpful video, and receiving such positive feedback really made my day- thanks Stan!
I feel like I rushed my stuff a tad too much when looking at what everyone did. At the same time I've no idea on how to make something loose and experimental and as detailed as some of these. I'll just do some more. On a side note, it's funny how we've had a few of these critiques and I can instantly recognize Clowndev's work.
I was the guinea pig (#16). I've been slowly pacing myself out of my comfort zone. I'm happy to hear my shapes/lines were good, will try being more exploratory with subject itself next! When I thought character I thought props, accessories, etc., but would like to be able to express a character without those things like I saw others doing. I'll play more with it on my own.
It’s so hard to sketch with the pressure sensitivity of Apple Pencil and sketch loosely with my arm. I mean, I had so much fun doing this! Thank you so much Stan. I’m starting to love drawing. The process.
