Added a little too much details with the teeth and spine. Initially was most just light straights and then I went in with more confident CSIs after the demo
I realize that I chose to add in some smaller lines but I hope the details I selected to include don't take away from the assignment. Having difficulty with proportions. I used the length of the head to scale the rest of the figure.
Tried Level 2. Before and After following along. It's not a big difference. I saw some things and I am happy about it. Still a lot to learn, my lines are not confident and I could use some 3D drawing exercices.
Here is my first attempt at the camel. I wasn't sure how to handle some of the cast shadows around the head.
Hello hello, here is my camel of level 2 project. On left is my before attempt, then in middle is along with the demo & on right is my after demo attempt. So early in the course and I feel like I'm challenging myself by drawing from real life, drawing feets, drawing faces, drawing with loose hand and simplifying with SCI. It would be pleasurable to come back one day and look from where I started.
Drew before watching the skull part of the demo. I should have used the portrait paper orientation. Need to improve the confidence in drawing lines.
Drew this camel after watching the Level 1 demo but before watching the Level 2 demo.
Wanted to challenge myself by doing both levels. First drawing of each subject was made before demo, second after demo. I was too caught up into the details, outlining little details and forgot the main objective of this project, which is to practice line quality and stroke confidence! I'm using an A5 I found laying around and wanted to start practicing while my order doesn't arrive, but during the exercise I missed having a larger sketchbook. The spiral was a bit in the way. Anyways... critiques are welcomed! :)
Level 2 exercises prior to video tutorial. By the shear fact of showing up I already feel improvement from yesterdays drawings! I'm loving these exercises. It's taken a long time to address furthering my drawing skills! I can't imagine what was holding me up!! Probably a core fear of being rejected by the tribe...well, you fail ahead of time if you don't face the page!
I think it'd behoove all of us if you were emphasizing the way you positioned your hand. One thing I noticed is that in order to draw a curve more confidently, you really have to put your hand at sort of a "center" or that curve (or arc). Place your hand elsewhere seems to make it easier to fail.
