hiya! I love this assignment. The idea of compiling reference and then inventing is something I never thought to do, but I look forward to exploring the techniques more! In the future, I think I'll do more prep drawings so I can pose the characters however I want. More exploratory than finished. Keep it up everyone!
After rewatching the lesson, looking at my drawings, and comparing them to the video example, I notice right away that I was attempting to be far too controlled and perfect. I think I was kicking the ball towards the wrong goal, so to speak. That lovely energy and liveliness is missing from mine. I also notice that some of my lines are far darker than others and it makes it look a little weird. Alas, here we are! Good job everyone!
HI everyone! Super fun project right!? I neglected drawing the snail because YUCK but other than that, I just went ahead and tried everything. Is it just me, or are the level 1 boots harder than the level 2 project references? Loving everyone's projects, lets keep it up!
One thing you could do is darken the values in the arches and under the bridge for more contrast. Those beautiful arches don't pop the way I think you maybe want them too, so darkening all of those interesting shadow shapes would add some ever important contrast! You may also consider adding darker values in those rocks on the left, and also maybe add a foreground element off to the right. Great work!
Hello Proko People! This is my first post asking for advice. I think the following drawings are decent but I get the impression the form and the gesture can be improved. Any advice from a fresh pair of eyes is appreciated :)))
My process was a huge struggle and all over the place. I shaded the muscles individually instead of grouping shadow shapes like Proko instructed. Now I'm trying a new study by grouping shadow shapes, but I still kinda feel like I'm guessing my way through. Every critique is appreciated!
I wish this is what I looked like after three weeks! These already show understandings of important concepts, gesture mainly. I think what you think is wrong right now is that they look a little flat. This is "easily" augmented with practicing drawing basic forms and then practicing drawing the mannequin. Don't worry about shading during these, as that's something that can be done later.
