Demo - Learning to Sketch from Imagination
Mark as Completed
Really love the constructing with colored pencil idea. For some reason it really frees me up from attacking detail right away.
"Class Notes," or "Sketching with Stan," or "This is why it takes me so long to get through a demo video." :P
I decided to try this project but I mainly focused on drawing from observation. As I continue in my art journey maybe I'll come back to this project to see how much I've improved. Any critiques would be appreciated :)
This is my first attempt at this project. I was inspired by these finches but i think that the final character looks like a seagull.
I thought I would give a level two assignment a go this time around instead of just sticking to level one. For this assignment I just copied one of my light sketches I got from an image and then I altered it a bit, so I'm not so sure if that's really drawing from imagination, but I still really enjoyed the process a lot!
Hello everyone! I tried a Barn Owl, I started with 4 reference images and the tried the last one on my own.
Hello everyone! This is my first post here. If anyone has any feedback please tell me. It will be deeply appreciated. Have a good day everyone.
Nice work Everyone. You all seem to have some pretty amazing drawings. I know my drawings will be embarrassing compare to others but I wanted to do a follow up from the Demo and only stick to loose sketch lines as Proko Suggested. Thanks all
Decently happy. The head felt off for so long and I spent so much time trying to get it to feel right that I now realize how much I neglected the body. But, was fun and I'll probably go back and do more with the body soon.
Hi everyone, this is another attempt at the imagination sketches. I studied tigers this time. I took the time to do some exploration and came up with a boxer tiger character. Also, I make sure to keep my lines loose.
Hi everyone! This is my attempt at imagination sketches of a lemur. After studying them I kind of wanted my character to look sneaky and innocent at the same time. Not super convinced but there we go!
Truly inspiring! This demo has provided an in-depth explanation of Pro's thought process when doing the creation. And it really really helpful to beginner like me who has no clue of the direction. Feel I am getting a hang of it. I am going to explore and keep trying it. Thank you Proko!
Hi, these are my attempts at imagination sketches after watching the demo video. Got some new reference pictures and broke them down.
Hi, I am new to the course and it's my first post on Proko! I was inspired and decided to draw along the demo... I got a bit carried away and did some highlights and arsh shadows. He gives me the vibe of a bad guy in a movie like Rio but with chameleons or reptile instead of birds. I am very very open to criticism, go hard, don't take any comments back, don't hesitate. I want to become better, a lot better! Thanks in advance
I wanted an animal character combining a cat and a bat. It's very difficult to capture right facial expression and the body in motion. But it was a fun exercise; I was hesitate to try it because I was afraid to fail.
I think this was one of the best lessons of the entire course so far! The importance of the mindset of making mistakes is so critical, and studying with exploration in mind is something I haven't done in a long time. I'll do the whole two lessons projects again, with different images, and apply what I learned from this!
Here's my sketching from imagination. Recently I had been drawing Shere Khan from The Jungle Book, so I was heavily influenced by his design. Attached are some of the reference photos I looked from and the sketches based on those photos. I did two final designs. I couldn't quite get the back leg of the young Snow Leopard and I didn't bother with a full body of the adult.
