Hey Logan, Let me begin by saying the children's show mascot eating the child is out of control funny! Awesome! After looking at your stuff, I think you are right, learning anatomy will really help you. One of the things I tell people here is: painting is drawing. It means that our paintings will never look the way we want them to unless the drawing is correct. Most of your drawings are missing a solid, structural base, meaning, they lack a 3 dimensional quality that should be in the drawing before you even start to paint. So, I wont comment yet on the painting part, but on your drawings specifically. I did a quick drawing to show you what I'm talking about, I hope it makes sense to you and can help you :)
Hello, I am new to digital art and have been diving into it lately with drawing prompts from a friend of mine. I draw and paint traditionally for the most part and I am beginning to learn anatomy. I would just love to know your thoughts on what I've done so far and any suggestions are welcome! I know a huge weakness I have so far is varying my brushes. For each of these images I started out with a sketch, then laid in flat color, and finally did a pass of lighting and shadows on separate layers. The prompts are: Draw yourself as a cyberpsycho from Cyberpunk 2077 Draw a rabbit/toad hybrid mutant Draw a children's show mascot eating a child Draw a pigman being held captive Draw a shop in the future where androids are shopping for skin suits They were drawn in the order of the listed prompts.
This is a strange course, so far. Topics and informations are thrown there,wildly, which is totally different from Stan's lessons that are very structured. But I like it too. Just seeing Patrick drawing live can make me learn stuff like a sponge. So I tried drawing a female figure from imagination, starting with very strong gesture lines, and trying to keep them alive. And well, I failed. In the end, adding anatomy on top made me lose the nice flows I had at the beginning, no matter what. I especially feel bad for the left shoulder which doesn't look right at all. I'll try again after watching more videos, and we'll see if my drawings can get more stylish and gestural.
