How to Draw with Line Weight
Mark as Completed
Daily sketch from yesterday and today. Still focusing on using line weight to define depth, and a little shadow.
20/6/2023 This has to be one of my worst drawings on this site compared to yesterday, it feels rushed and super lacklustre in comparison to everything else.
19/6/2023 New drawing today guys, I feel as if my drawings been needed a touch up when it comes to me and references, got any ideas? Criticisms are welcomed.
17/6/2023 Searching for more and better methods of practicing. How you practice is more (sometimes) important than what you practice after all. Criticisms are welcomed!
16/6/2023 Drawing these little guys are really fun! Plus it also makes it easier for me to point out my mistakes. The simpler the design, anatomy, etc. The less forgiving it is when it happens. Criticisms are welcomed.
14/6/2023 I decided to do some extra work for this time, trying to applying what Proko’s been saying with only Thick, Medium! & Light Lines. I need to find a way to challenge myself with these concepts, so I’m gonna be sticking with this till I can go towards Values and Edges even the smallest bit. Criticisms are welcomed!
10/6/2023 Time for Depth and Form! I got the basics of what Proko was saying, thought it was a lot harder to implement into my drawings. Say I’m gonna move on from drawing Line Weight and explore what other options I can learn in the free version of the basic drawing course. Criticisms are welcomed!
9/6/2023 Practicing the Light and Shadow Technique that was displayed by Proko today. I think I’m doing pretty good for all these drawings. What do ya think? Criticisms are welcomed!
8/6/2023 Practicing this technique was pretty fun and I felt great for instantly understanding what Proko was talking about. I think I’m gonna watch his critique video about drawing from imagination, as I really want to start learning how to construct the many wonders in my mind. (Though my fundamentals need MAJOR work before that happens). Criticisms are welcomed.
I gave it a try both on paper and digitally. It seems quite flat to me ... probably my lines are all quite similar
I made a quick drawing to see the difference between no line weight, only thick outlines and thick lines where I would put them. The fourth is just adding colors because I thought why not. The dwarve is "Grumpy" from Snow White. Next is the rhino from Stan but I need more time...
First project that i'm doing digitally - used Procreate and Studio Pen. Still getting used to controlling the pressure sensitivity of the apple pencil. I purposefully chose a brush with no stabilization. Im surprised how totally different these came out when i focused on the two different tasks (Hierarchy of Importance vs Shadow&Light).
Practicing line weight while still enjoying mushroom and line warmups. Doing a page of warmups before each drawing session seems to be helping my line quality.
