Im having a hard time keeping the proportions right with these swoopy lines, the envelope-thing might help me a bit, good advice! Im not ready to share anything jet because i know i can do it better than what I've done so far. I think the step from drawing a simple pear to these boots was a big leap. The snail was a bit more beginner friendly for sure.
This is mr Asaro Mcthreedeeprint everybody! He's a friend of Marco Bucci who got a great course here on proko for anybody who wants to learn to simplyfy the human head! He turned out a bit wonky, but hey! I started the 14 days challenge! Not every day will be a masterpiece i guess, but i will try to keep up!
Anyone here from Marshall's Kley Inkmaster class? As much as I love the forgiving nature of graphite, I'm trying to be more proficient in ink to get more mileage out of my lines. This was a most excellent and really, really challenging evening. I sketched in blue pencil, found the shadow shapes, outlined the vegetable, and tried lines of varying density to convey the 5 shades. Sometimes maybe good, sometimes maybe shit! Feedback is most welcome :) PS: the camera did crush my shadows a bit more than my observed shadows, and there was definitely a bounce light on that onion!
This will be my final pear I think. I did this after I watched the demo. Some good advices I got from the demo that i kept in my head while drawing was to keep solid edges like a cut-out, and to first make one solid shape of shadow, to later devide them in two. I surely have a tendency of wanting to straight things up. My pear should defenetly be leaning more to the right. Really looking forward to the next exercise!
Here is my first attempt at the pear. I do have a couple of questions: 1. When shading, Proko seem to keep the strokes in the same direction, is it ok to change direction to accommodate for ease of the strokes? 2. Can we change the paper orientation? Good luck to everyone. I can see you guys are putting a great effort. It is inspiring!
Some pre-demo pear drawings. A pair of them (no pun intended!) I look forward to watching the demo now and redoing one or both of them. I recognize that I need to work on sharpening my edges and not over rendering like I may have on these. I want to quicken my pace and stick to the 5 value limit.
