Figure Drawing Critiques – Structure Basics
Mark as Completed
Some animal structure practice! Critique is welcome! Initially I was struggling a lot with breaking down animals into shapes (what shapes to use, etc.) but moderndayjames’ video on how to draw animals really helped. However I know I still have more improvements to make so I’m considering spending another week on this after watching Proko’s critique video (not sure why I didn’t watch that beforehand).
love it when you do your examples of the exercise. I'm pretty dumb so I tend to not realise I CAN do a quick gesture first before adding the structure.
First f i n i s h e d attempt. I think it turned out pretty good but still it took way more time than it should have. It’s like I’m afraid to make a wrong line and it’ll ruin a drawing so I spend hours doing a simple sketch. Any exercises recomendation to fix that? Meanwhile I’m gonna draw some more animals from different angles. (Maybe with a time limit?)
Hi all, here are some drawings for the Structure basic assignment I have done over the last 10 days. I do realize these lack the boxy, cylindrical and spherical shapes more defined, which was the intent of the exercise. I am still working on that. Would appreciate some feedback if you have some! @Jesper Axelsson
I wish there were more examples for structure. I feel like I'm being thrown into the deep end for this one.
I have practiced some animal structure!!! I can see you guys doing so well. Feel free to give me some feedback:)
My first attempts at this assignment! It took a while for me to figure out what shapes to use. I am going to do more practice just drawing shapes in perspective, since I still feel that’s a struggle itself sometimes. Feel free to leave a comment with any critiques:)
My attempts with this exercise. Struggled a bit with a tendency to overcomplicate the forms and lose sight of what the actual purpose of this lesson was, if I was to do more of theses I'd probably try to capture more of the larger underlying basic 3D shapes.
this one was so hard. I think I am having a hard time simplifying the shapes and the perspective.
Here is my second take on structure basics on animals. Gesture wise I think I did a good job. At some points I felt like not adding enough structure elements/I didn't know where to add more complexity/less.
Hi, everyone! These are my first two structure studies. Not sure if I'm doing it correctly? I'd appreciate some feedback. I struggle with figuring out if a certain part should be a box or another shape (like with the top part of the deer's torso connected to the front leg) and also "seeing" through the fur like with the abdomen in the owl. Any tips? Thanks!
Hi everyone! Really struggling with this twisted torso pose….trying to imagine the muscular structure of the model. I don’t want to render it and find that something fundamental is wrong 😑 I know something is off but I just can’t tell what it is! Advice very welcome 🙏
Hey there, unsure if I have simplified these TOO much especially in the face areas. any tips appreciated!
