I'm really happy how this turned out. To be fair, I took this figure drawing class a while ago, but do these figure drawings to practice shading. Just a couple weeks ago, I was separating lights from darks, and now I know I'm improving. Just some extra notes: I turned the sharpness and warmth in post for the first picture, so it may be wonky. The last picture was when I initially finished, but noticed something was off. Feel free to give criticism! - Dwight
Somehow these measured studies get way more off than my usual ones. question: how do you go about finding the side points (farthest points left and right) better after establishing the height line with the center? This is where I still have the most trouble.
After working on the skeletal section I've been trying to combine them all together. Two of these I drew on top of a reference and tried to imagine the structure. The other three I drew next to the reference and used the 3d models to help visualize the perspective. It's still a bit rough but I'd love to hear any feedback for how these could be better.
@Luigi Manese, @Liandro, and @Jesper Axelsson! Hey everyone back again after having some fun doing some more structure mannequins. so added a few extra sketches just because I thought they would be fun to show. The ones that I thought put everything together best were the ones from 6/1 and 6/2. The other two I just included for fun even though there might be issues. There are more that I was tempted to include as well but didn’t want to overwhelm with too many photos. So feel free to comment on the fun ones as well if you wish.
This is my progress about a week into mannequinization. Its slow going and Im working on trying to get less scratchy and visualizing 3d shapes from a reference, its a lot harder than they make it look! This is definitely the hardest part of the course so far. Any feedback for improvements would be appreciated!
