Hi, Stan & Team: OK, so I copied all of Stan's demos - like I usually do. And then, I watched the critique. OK - point taken now. I'm not posting any of my copies any more! I do it because I've no confidence that I can come up with anything on my own. Anyway, I'm done whining. Here's MY first assignment from the reference photos. The one on the left is the mess I made without a lot of reference. The 2nd one, on the right is done with both 3D models AND Skelly. Can I get Skelly App to work on my computer? It's really hard to manipulate him on the phone. THANKS.
I went through a process of copying each demo then extrapolating as much as I could to build the skeletons for the homework. I made extensive use of the simple ribcage 3D model and the pelvis in a bucket 3D model. Both were extremely helpful. Homework 1-3
Here is the first pelvis I really did on my own, working with the tutorial and the pelvis in a wireframe bucket. That is SO helpful. It took me a few starts and a few hours. I'm mostly struggling with drawing the ellipse correctly and then getting the bucket correctly placed in space, in perspective. I will do more of these.
OK. I will try not to make excuses for the fact that I have no digital tools (and don't know how to use them anyway.) I tried doing a "tracing" right onto print-outs of the assignments. You will see the mess I made. It now occurs to me to try white and red colored pencils next time. My effort really discouraged me and so, I turned to the thing I like best, which is to copy the teacher, which is what I did the 2nd time around with new printouts under tracing paper.
