Mannequinization Assignment Examples - Back View
This course really is excellent! As a beginner, I’m so amazed at how these seemingly simple technique progressions have taught me not just to get a feel for the figure quickly, but to direct my hand where I want it to go. I’m very excited about what’s ahead.
After finishing the video examples, I moved onto other references. I think at times I have a little trouble with joints and using them effectively to show the planes of certain points, ie the knee and elbow. I also find the top shoulder hard to understand, whether its a block shape or more of a curve. Overall I think I'll be moving on from Mannequinization lessons, I still think at times my line quality is a little messy, but its just something I have to work on.
maybe too much contour? I really struggle with line quality. Never sure how to vary to add dimension and interest
my first attempt at manaqiunization. Gonna keep following along and getting better. But I wanted to share my first mannequin. It ain’t much but it’s honest work.
Did my normal, screen cap the references and figure out the forms on my own, then go back and compare to the video using red lines to show the major differences. Overall I think my line quality still needs some work, a few of the mannequins had maybe too many cross lines, but boy am I feeling good about my work overall. I'll come back later this week to post the last references from the video.
Back view examples and 1st image is mannequins from imagination, which still has issues in the arms and connection of legs to hips, but I enjoyed the process.
Hello there people! I hope you're having a great day. This are some daily studies for the mannequin lesson. I see now that the connection between torso and pelvis is not quit right so I'll be more carefull. Any feedback is appreciated!
Hi, Since I am spend the last year with gesture drawing to start a figure drawing, it is difficult for me to start with geometric shapes like in this videos. In this assignment I start with gesture for each body part and add than the form. gesture has burned into my mind :-) Hope this is no problem :-) Which advice can you give me? Thanks for any feedback :-) George
Although my goal is to paint with oil paints from portraits to faces to figures and especially landscapes,(hence why I'm doing both courses from drawabox*free ver.* and this one is a bit draining but I can endure it surprisingly.) I tried to draw this figures from imagination and of course it sucks buuut I had fun with it. I'm one of those people who'd need assurance of one's own drawing skills before they paint with full leisure I know it's really bad as they usually say to paint everyday& experiment w colors but I still want to draw freehand cool sketches from imagination or draw interesting landscapes also from imagination in a sketchbook. Being self taught in painting especially oil painting of all mediums I could've picked is quite intimidating and terrifying as a girl who reads a lot about art history..but when I started taking watercolor it's the medium where I understood color far more deeper and it made me excited than I thought so I'll stick with watercolors for a very long time and do little oil paint session if I can and come back doing oil painting full time even if they appear to have the opposite way of preparation, pigments, etc. That is all, sorry for the long message hoping nobody read this=3=
This assignment takes a long time, I practiced a lot and still don't get it right... here are a few of the results. Some of them drawn along with Stan, some partly of my own with corrections. (laid out on about 60/80cm space) I also took a little break from it and learned etching from a friend, which was fun. Will come back to mannequinization again later. Hopefully with better results.
