Critique - Learning to Sketch from Observation
Mark as Completed
Had an easier time being light and loose with the lines, more in line with the assignment
First 2 pages were done before watching the demo and the critiques. Godzilla was done after watching Godzilla Minus One (awesome movie!) All of these drawings have too much detail I think.
Some more practice. Some proportions off, and some stiff lines when I tried to darken up the “right” lines, especially in the hairy parts. But overall, I think I was much looser with these sketches. And they were super fun to do!
I was not able to capture the slightly leaned-back angle of this meerkat. I think it is because I did not do well when drawing the first loose sketch to get a bigger picture like Stan demonstrated in the penguin example.
I think I am making some improvement in line quality, but it was difficult for me to capture the feeling of the cat's dynamic movement.
I would like to become able to draw animals and plants, so doing some extra practice on drawing these subjects.
Kept going with the drawing from observation assignment. I really enjoy sketching animals, as I find it more diverse than inanimate objects and it also feels like it's the next step in developing the skills to draw people. I tried to stay loose with my searching lines yet accurate at the same time. Can I just say that I really like throwing on an old movie and just sketching. It's just my style I think, as I find it immensely relaxing and I can pause my sketch and zone into a scene that's in the film. I sketched these animals while watching Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as well as the Last crusade (my personal favourite).
Second attempt of the VR girl and penguin, trying to see the bigger picture and sketch out the big shapes.. lines are a bit messy but I think it's going the right direction
Lost the original reference I had for the rhino, but tried to do this again, this time with the knowledge learnt from the critique. Worried less about proportions, and tried to be more loose and confident with the lines, I quite liked the result!
Hi community! After watching Stan's demo and critique I wanted to try sketching again to try to put into practice what he mentions in the videos, especially the thinking of forms instead of contours and trying to find some rhythm and flow which I struggled a bit during the project. Any advice or feedback is very much appreciated. Thanks!
i had a hard time doing the level 1 assignments compared to the level two assignments for some reason. i think i was too caught up in trying to make it look decent that i forgot to stay loose and confident. i’ll definitely try these assignments again some time to see if i can practice this skill :)
I just realised I failed completely at this exercise hahaha. Went way too perfect with mine. I kept erasing my sketching lines because I wanted it to be perfect.. I guess I need to learn from everyone else that it's ok to just be searching for the right line sometimes.
hi first time drawing or using a tablet. im doing the free course im not sure what im supposed to be learning? what should focus on? should even bother shading or just focus on the shape? thanks in advance
