Mannequinization Assignment Example 1
Mark as Completed
Hi, before taking the assignment I was drawing along with Stan to understand the Method better! here and below the next videos I'll be attaching my copies
My second attempt at mannequinization. I still have some trouble with proportion, especially on the tapering in the leg area. I need some feedback and help on this..
Hey - Im using willow charcoal sticks to draw (on cheap newsprint paper) , I love the softness (and the rub-out your mistakes ability!) but really hard to control. What to people use most to draw with for these exercises? Ta
Another set of Mannequinization studies. As the studies go along I begin to focus more on the shoulders as I struggle with drawing the shoulders. :)
I totally got lost on the neck/back muscles and between that and the hair helmet my drawing really got muddied… I think I’ll stick to the basics before trying to add muscle volume again. I might also need to sharpen my pencil. I’ll echo those saying that this is a big leap from the robo bean- I totally agree. Hopefully it’ll get better with some more practice.
Hi guys! This is my work on the first assignment...i did watch how Stan solved a bunch of thing though. What do you think? Is it good enough to keep exercising on the mannequin?
For me the jump from the "robo bean" to the "mannquinization" is a big one. It would have helped to have additional lessons in between to practice the shapes for the different body parts. It would also have helped if Stan would explain what he is doing during the session. I only started with this chapter. Maybe it works out in the end.
My draw-along attempt :) Tried hard to truly build up the structure from gesture to robobean to mannequin instead of looking at the contour. I think I should've exaggerated the gesture so that the position of her torso was more erect, she appears to be leaning forward a little in comparison to the reference. Feedback is highly appreciated!
My first attempt of drawing this mannequin, drew this before I got this blessing course and struggled how small my sketchbook were. I see how some people use some kind of uh board like a surface to draw(???) for figure drawings and some very smooth paper really curious about the board and papers they were using to draw, any recommendations(preferably cheap one)would save my life. thank you!
I thought you should do a gesture drawing first and then go over it with structure but Proko went straight into the structure it seems
This is my first mannequinization drawing, which I thoroughly enjoyed. This is hard! My method is to draw the pose in the assignment, and then watch it back and see where I've gone wrong. The shoulders on mine are a bit vague, and the side of the torso seems ropey as well. It seems to make sense to me to simplify the shoulders as spheres/balls, so I find that bit really tricky. Also, my upper back, although obscured, isn't constructed with confidence. Here's to more practice.
