Quick sketch robo-beans. I was looking to get these roughed in quickly, so a little sketchy…

Armature prototype #2, about 8.5 inches in height. Done all with one continuous piece of wire. Lots to learn. Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step!

Value and color studies this morning. Forgot to take a reference photo of the first one. Did I do too much, or too little? I’m not sure. these are my first attempts at plein air and haven’t done too many pure studies before. figured I should start simple. I’m excited to fill this little book.

Awesome. I like the photo holding the study up so we can see subject view also!

@Tobias Höglund a few ideas to ponder- would it increase in appeal if the viewer could see full body of rabbit and others in action instead of static heads? From my initial impression, it appears more Dali surrealist in tone than decorative, as it has quite a lot of symbolism which viewer needs to puzzle out for themselves. It definitely has the factor to draw a viewer back in trying to figure out its meaning like Dali. Very well executed technique by the way!

So far I am really trying my best find the line of action and at times I am sad 😔. I just really want to learn how to draw anything from imagination someday but at times I feel discouraged to do so. I would go forward to play games or do more school work instead of studying art. I really would like to work in the gaming Industry some day and I know I need to make this my habite every single day. Thank you everyone for always criticizing me from day one, that means a lot to me because the community I was in before didn’t even mind my work or grown that much. It makes me me feel like someone actually cares about me. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to practice art more. Thanks for all critics on what I can do to better gesture🥇🧨🥇

These look good! I can definitely sense your action lines. One way to practice more often is to always add an element of fun to your practice, remember drawing is fun, not just hard work! Fun can include your own creative projects, fan art of favorite characters, or for example studying gesture or drawing techniques of your personal favorite artists.

Hello, this is my second try at drawing gesture, hoping I got at least a little bit closer to the purpose of this lesson. I would really like some feedback please. These were not timed. I am planning to start timed sessions once the current ones pass as acceptable, so it would be really appreciated if you gave me a thumbs up as well. This is just to be safe I do not stray from the right path. It still feels like I am focusing too much on form even though I start with the gesture line. My hand itches to start filling in details and I have to keep reminding myself this is a gesture exercise. Same happens with proportions. I want to start measuring but I always lose the flow. I apologize if the quality of the pictures I have taken is not very clear, I have tried my best. The models are from quickpose and for the first couple of drawings I closed the tabs without saving the references, sorry about that as well. Same as in my previous post I am very open to any critique, even the harsh ones. Thank you very much in advance for your time. Edit: Wow, the compression killed it. https://imgur.com/a/ATluDFM

I think you are on the right track and should start in with timed gestures now. As an alternative i like to sometimes limit the number of lines of c, s or i to be used. So for example if you could only use 7 to 9 lines maximum, you choose which are necessary. Something which is actually fun to try and practice as well!

Hi everyone! I was absolutely not feeling it this week, and therefore am not very happy with my homework. Only the very last drawing turned out well. Feedback is appreciated.

These are excellent studies. one way i like to think of the purpose of the homework is to stretch beyond my comfort zone, which is inherently difficult, so some dissatisfaction with any result is actually a good thing, in that it means you have a sure sign of growth in pushing your capabilities to next level. Maybe you can consider one or two focused things you dislike to write down in sketchbook, as reminder for emphasis in next studies? But don’t be too hard on yourself, this is really good work you have!

Please give me your advice. I take the photo of my hand and then use the grid system to measure the accurate shape. Critique is appreciated!

Tried drawing a profile, and used the smudge tool as some of you recommended. What do you think of this?

I did this color study today (1,5 hour) My goal is to push myself to work fast while also learning something about colors, structure light and shape design. I think the skin and the hand was hard to do, under such short amount of time. Link to reference photo: https://unsplash.com/photos/BthSqlD2Cso

Wow. Great color study! I really like how many shapes use variations of light blue, there are so many! The colors reflected in table surface is very effective. The only small things i notice for considering is shading lines technique used under chin stands out as different than anything else technique wise, and the shading under her eyes feel a little dark in value. It is interesting to consider if you were doing a longer work, what things in the reference would/ could you change to tell the story even better. For example, is there an even better place to put chair in the foreground? And the plant is at tangent with her face, could it be moved or omitted out for a longer composition?

Egg values study for lesson on shading light and form basics. This assignment is way harder to do than it might seem at first read, it can scramble your brain!

I am practicing this exercise again with a version 2 to attempt to get the egg light and shading improved. The complexity of this exercise is intense. Omelette time soon! My recommendation to anyone in the figure course, please do not skip over this assignment, it is very useful. Version 2 was done before i saw posts of the very helpful and thoughtful feedback on version 1 below from @Kia Patel and @Nanna Skytte

@Carl Joshua Jayme this is fantastic start. The only things i notice to consider are really tiny but here goes- on the right side of the paper the exact shape of visible white of eye and exact shape of iris doesn’t match the reference exactly, and also on the right side of the paper the cheek feels little off because it has not been fully modelled/ shaded yet and of course the right ear isn’t there yet to help frame right side contour of cheek. Awesome drawing and will be great to finish!

Hi everyone. This is my submission for the hand assignment. Since I was still struggeling with the bones of the forearm, I included them into the assignment. I feel like the right hands on the first picture where the best. In picture 2 i was still struggeling with the phalanges. In picture 3 the metacarples where two long in my undersketch. I corrected it as i was drawing the final structure.

These look very good, and i like how you use and show here the blue undersketch process to build to find your proportions. One way i personally like to check my accuracy when i’m not aware what may be off in my sketch, is photographing the sketch, then use digital art program like procreate to compare a low opacity layer sketch on top of source picture. Hope that may be helpful

@sojin choi Lots of great advice, thank you. My favorite of your advice is to be mindful in drawing with purpose to get the most out of my time spent in practice. My plan is to consciously identify my specific focus in a few words each time before i start drawing.

Well, there's the anatomy tracing exercise! I understand this as more of an introduction to the learning tool than anything else, but I wanted to give it a shot as somebody who vaguely knows these muscle groups starting out. I'm not sure If I'm seeing the flat areas well, so finding the tendon areas on the back were difficult on the last image. I am also not sure about the tendon areas of the abdominal sections in particular, either. Fiber directions are meant to show my understanding of insertion/origin when present. A lot of important muscles seem to connect around the scapula, so I found that pretty tough. Any advice or important things I missed? Any way I can push this exercise? (Labels on the first tracing was identification practice and weren't meant to stay there, but oh well!)

These look like you have a good start. One thing i noticed in the drawing studies was defining the origins of 3 distinct portions of pectoralis major- clavicular, sternal and abdominal seem a little off, so that may be something to consider going forward. Hope that helps.
