Hii everyone! I've tried sth new. For me at least :D 30s poses - from photo ref. :( - w/o using any construction lines/ LoA. So the main question will be: Is this gestural? At all? in your opinion. Pleeease critique this, thanks in advance, oke bye.
Hello, these are my most recent gestures (4th session). Image 1+2 were part of a 1h session after rewatching the first vid (didn't see the others yet). 3+4 after rewatching the first "Flow Method" video. Now that I look at it I think page 1 is alright, even though I do oversimplify. Page 2 is where it kind of starts falling apart for me. Maybe all of this new info overwhelmed me. I tried to apply "force" without really understanding it. I realized this after rewatching it. I then proceeded to ditch stuff like line of action and other concepts in favor of "force". Bad idea. It visibly decreased my confidence, which shows in my lines. Page 4 was, a bit better maybe? The 5 and 10 minute poses seem to be a bit easier to read, but the 20 min one felt awful to be quite honest. I will move on to the demo tomorrow and keep an eye out for stuff like how Stan does limbs and when to simplify shapes. There is also the issue of not knowing how to combine the concepts of Stan and Mike Mattesi instead of treating both as hard rules with no option to combine them. Well, I've got a lot to learn :) I am looking forward to the feedback. :0 (Btw here are some resources I use for practicing: line-of-action.com quickposes.com)
Hi everyone! I've been practicing gesture for a while now and wanted to ask you what you think of these. Sometimes the poses are still falling apart and sometimes the gesture isn't quite there yet. But in general, would you say, these lines convey a sense of gesture and/or weight? What do you think could definitely be improved? What has helped you to understand gesture drawing better (beyond just doing gesture drawing and learning anatomy/ perspective and stuff)? Looking forward to your comments/critiques! Thanks in advance.
Hello, i am new here :) Started to watch this course yesterday and trying to practice simple gestures. I am still bit new into learning how to draw i have around month behind me with tablet, before i never focused on how to draw properly, i just copied pictures i liked. Now i am trying to learn how to stand on my own feets in art. This is my work from today, i will be glad to hear some feedbacks. I put 2 minutes limit on each gesture.
While I did have a lot of fun doing this, I think the proportions are a bit screwed, right? I tried some forced perspective- foreshortening thing, but, imo, the 2 distal phalanges of the index finger are too big nevertheless? And the thumb's still too small? Highly appreciate your feedback on that matter!
Hi everyone! In this exercise, I've found it very hard visualizing the overlappings of the pec. maior in a way that shows all muscle directions and insertions while maintaining readability - any solutions for that? Any other feedback and critiques are kindly appreciated as well, of course :)
Tried doing a couple studies. It's starting to get a little easier figuring out what all the bumps and bones are and how they connect. I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out how the clavicle and scapula fit on the rib cage once they're not visible or facing forward, especially if theres extreme forward or backward movement, I can make somewhat of a guess, but I'm not sure how to fix it if it doesnt look right. And I think I still confuse a ligament or something for the end of the clavicle or the acromion process. I have a decent idea of how to draw the rib cage I think, but I'm having some trouble with what angle and what landmarks the rib cage is in the photos sometimes.
