Hey all, Posting my CSI project attempts before and after watching the demo video. Any critiques will be appreciated.
Here is the Camel before watching the Demo and Critiques video. After I watched the videos, I went back and redrew the Camel and also decided to draw the Snail. Camel noses are weird, not sure I got it, but moving on...
Tried to apply the same project to some ref images found online. Photographer: @dustin_blaise on IG
I was happy with all my drawings except for the skull so I redid it after watching the demo and the critiques and really focused on simplifying even more and making my line weights more even.
Hello! these are my work after watching the csi critique, i made a small project Those plants were the most brutal, it was hilarious, i thought i was going to have a wonderful time doing them because they look so flowy and fun, so many curves, it's the perfect subject to practice csi right? i wasn't wrong though, but the fun came after a painful process of measuring their proportions measuring the proportion of those plants was a brain torture, i only measured the proportion of each plant once, all the second plants (on the right sides) are using the first plant as a base then i draw on the top of it(not to be confused with tracing), i skipped the measuring process, i just wanna get into the csi part, not measuring proportions, more flowy lines, exaggerations, shapes, just more fun overall I was also having a hard time with simplifying foreshortened things, such as: 1.The proportion of the insect with pink shell was off 2.White neck cat on the first column was difficult, it's foreshortened, idk what's going on with its back leg 3.Grey cat on the second column + third row was also difficult, it's foreshortened, simplifying its arms was hard 4.The kangaroo on the second column at the bottom was off, it's slightly tilted forward, i can see its front face, there's even a cast shadow there, but i turned them into a side view, it looks really flat Those goat horns were a slight whip, not highly accurate, but i'm glad with the result, i was just capturing the essence, they're enough for now Horses are where i'm having the most fun, they're not easy though, they're foreshortened, i have to fight the tendency to make them look like a side view The skulls was a pretty chill process
Here are my first attempts at the project. I definitely focused on details too much on the boots and especially the skeleton. I think the camel probably has the best line work. I need to do more ghost lines before committing I think. I look forward to some feed back!
1 and 2 photos - before watching demo and critiques 3 and 4 photos - after I was focusing rly hard second time on simplifying shapes and completely lost my proportions , and in general I feel like first two look better but on the other hand I also tried to spend less time on second attempt
I feel like I had the most trouble with the snail for some reason. Fun challenge and creating good habits struggle with like cleaner lines
Drew the snail and the came again after the demos and the critique. The camel had a better balance of straights and curves now but I still have a lot of issues with fitting my subjects on paper. Felt like doing the snail on toned paper but holy smokes this particular paper is SO dark.
