Hello you wonderful art-people out there :) A friend of mine asked me to draw a rabbit with a smug and little mean facial expression. I am goint to spray the image with airbrush as a logo on one of his belongings. He wants the rabbit in a comic-style drawing. I started to create a rabbit and want to ask if you cound give me any tips for the expression on his face and if you have any critique? I tried to indicate the expression with the direction of the fur around the eyes. Still need to add the snake in the rabbits mouth.

Any suggestions, I'm afraid that I'm not overlapping the spheres correctly in the bean. Critique is welcome, encouraged and highly appreciated !

Good work there! :) Did you draw them digitally or with pencil? You did very good. I think you can impforve your line quality. If you draw with pencil I recomment to watch prokos video on how to hold a pencil., pretty good advices are given in the video :)

Hi! Here are some of my bean practices. I haven't been drawing beans for very long, but I want to get some critique to see what I should do next. I especially struggled with the twist. I've gotten more comfortable with it though. I appreciate any and all critique and feedback. Thanks!

Hi Becky. Great practice you did there :) I think you can improve your linework a lot by watching prokos video on how to hold a pencil. Helped me a lot to get cleaner lines. I think the upper and lower part can overlap more too :) Keep up the good work!

Does anyone know, if we could get a few more exercise examples from the 2-Minute gestures like in the video? Would really appreciate this :) even a pdf-download with just a few examples with the reference and the gesture drawn next to it would be of great help :)

Asked for help
I've been trying myself at figure drawing (2min ones there) for a few days now yet I feel like I'm not improving much and sticking to the same mistakes. I've been trying my hardest to ignore contours and solely focus on the movement but it gets pretty difficult to figure out once the poses gets more "clustered". Any advice on how I could sort things out?

Tried to paint on your drawings in my app. Since the one I have is not the best Iā€™m sorry for the quality. But hope this helps

Hello Liik. I think you are focusing more on the outline than on the overall motion of the gesture. I would recommend to do a few 30 Second gestures first before going back to the 2 min gesture. When I draw gesture I always try to search for the weight in the figure. I try to draw the line from head to the foot which is carying the weight.

Took me around 50 Minutes :) Fact to red pandas: they start their evening routine with cleaning their fur by "washing" it with their licked paws :)

Hi Lion. Did you use a reference picture for this one? Drawing portraits is really tough. I would recoment to trace the reference one our two times and than draw it freehand. Tracing teached me alot about getting a reference right. Hope this might help :) Also I would recommend to view prokos video about the loomis head method. Keep up the good work!

Maybe trying to delete the cache might help :) Just press Ctrl+Shift and remove button. Than in the menu you select for the timescale "all" and just select the cache. Than delete. Would be great if you could let me know if it works :)

Hi michaelcr! I really like your drawings, you did a great job! I would recoment to start with cold pressed watercolour paper. Hot pressed paper tends to build "blooms" and the transition between the colours tends to break. On cold pressed paper the blending works much easier. Here is how I aproach my watercolour paintings, maybe there is something at that which might help: 1. Plan your drawing. Before you start make yourself aware of the lights an darks. Also where do you want to blend colours, where do you want to use wet on wet and wet on dry tecniques? Bright highlights can be protected with masking fluid if needed. 2. mix and prepare the colours you need before starting the painting. Than you do not have the struggle to keep your paper longer wet. 3. When you use wet on wet, I highly recomment to use a sponge for wetting the paper. It gives you an even watered surface, no puddles. When you use a brush the paper often starts to dry on one side before I could manage to wet the other side completetly. 4. start with the lightest colour of your reference. Than slowly build up the values and layer the paint, building depth and darker values. In the end you add the details :) Your paintings are reallly beautiful and I'm pretty sure you are going to do a great development in your skills :) Keep up the good work!

Hi Kevin. I don't know how many drawings you already did, but when you struggle to get a start I highly recomend to visit mark crilleys youtube account. He has wonderful tutorials for people who start with the drawing hobby and his tutorials are not overwhelming. Apart from that I recommend the gesture drawing course. You can adapt gesture to every drawing. The videos from marco bucci on youtube give you a dive in this topic and many other too and build up a good fundament to work with. Hope this helps.

Hi Kat. Cute drawing! I think the light on the railing is part of the issue. The view is drawn to the middle bottom edge bedause of the light. I think the shoulder of the person holding the candle would throw a shadow on this part so you can go a lot darker there. The candle gives just a little amount of light and I think you can go way darker in the background too so that the pictues are just slightly visible. Than you can push the lights and darks on the blonde guy too. I attached you a reference picture. Hope this helps.

Hello tge. I think you are doing a great job with the colour selection and the basic drawing is beautiful too. I highly recommend you buy proper watercolour paper. This medium will behave completely different and you will love it when it does it's magic on the watercolour paper. I don't know if you alredy know the differences between the types of watercolour paper (hot pressed, cold pressed and rough). I would recomend to start with cold pressed watercolour paper. Hot pressed tends to create blooms (highly recomment hot pressed for coloured pencil and markers) and rough gives you a texture in the painting. Keep up the good work!
