I found this cutie on Unsplash.com and I just had to make a drawing of him, for today’s color study. He took me 1 h. and 20 m. I tried to implement some of @Marco Bucci's advise from yesterdays “The Color Survival Guide” video: https://www.proko.com/course/the-color-survival-guide/overview That video was super inspiring! - I think I could have pushed the color variation even more, but I'll keep practicing. :)
Year that's a challenge.... hmmm... I think I would go to unsplash.com to find a good cat reference - All photos there is free to use. Here is a link: https://unsplash.com/s/photos/cat Maybe you could find one that have the same kind of body type like the cat, and then use it for a reference, and then add the right color on the fur, eyes and markings. I know it is not the same as the real deal. But I hope it can be helpful in some way. Best of luck and happy drawing! :)
Asked for help
I did this color study today (1,5 hour) My goal is to push myself to work fast while also learning something about colors, structure light and shape design. I think the skin and the hand was hard to do, under such short amount of time. Link to reference photo: https://unsplash.com/photos/BthSqlD2Cso
Let's see what the community wants. We were planning on keeping this category clean with only official challenges, but if there is enough interest in allowing user created challenges, I'm ok with it. I can just pin the official ones to the top. Let's VOTE.. Reply to this comment with your thought!
Bonjour, goedendag, hello, nice to meet you all :) I'm Charline from Belgium. I'm was a 3D artist a decade ago then dropped art carreer entirely. I'm back since 2-3 years as a "hobbyist". I aim at drawing european style comics, mostly self-writen stories. I was told about Proko course a year ago and followed some of the anatomy lessons. I'm glad the website evolved into a full art community (and also impressed it's a web assembly site, much appreciated :p). Proko's lessons were among the most useful I found when I was looking for a fresh restart, this plateform has a big potential to help people improve ! I'm unsure how much I will be able to engage, as I have a day job and a lot of commute, but I will give it a try. Also, I made the mistake to join too many art communities for a while and exhausted myself trying to follow everything everywhere. I'm slow pace person and that burned me out quite a bit. Anyway, see you around, have a good day !
Hello, nice to meet you all :) I'm Nanna from Denmark. Right now I'm studying english while also trying to get into an art-school in Denmark. I want to study Graphic Storytelling and learn to make comics and graphic novels. Here is my social media links if your interested: https://nannaskytte.carrd.co/ I've been following Proko for years, and love the lessons here. It's great to have this new website with lessons and the chance to connect with you all. My first two short-comics: "The Trinket": https://nannaskytte.com/the-trinket/ "One day in the HOMESCHOOL" : https://nannaskytte.com/one-day-in-the-homeschool/ and of cause drawings: :)
Hello! I drew 10 figures and... well. Time was really a problem, I guess I was still too focused on contour and proportions. I’ll try to do better tomorrow (when I practice again). All of them were 2min drawings, and I couldn’t complete one because I lacked enough space for it (dumb me, I should’ve drawn that on another page). Comparing the 1st to the last, I think I’ve gotten better :). I also attached some references here (sorry I couldn’t attach all of them, the maximum files I can add are 10). Thanks in advance for anyone who critiques my drawings.
So beginning once again the Figure Drawing Fundamentals course along with the fresh start that is the awesome launch of Proko 2.0. My very quick gesture studies today are inspired from comics instead of photos, the studies i made are based on some very fun poses in Yancy Labat’s DC Superhero Girls comic.
