Hey! I've been trying to learn the figure for a few months now and have never had my scribbles looked at by other partakers of the arts. Would love to hear what you guys thought about a few Gesture/Figure drawings and have any suggestions on how to continue improving. The first two pages I tried focusing on the structure and shapes. On the last page I tried making something pretty looking in a few minutes. I don't think the last one came out all that great. Was also wondering if you guys like to do a multiple sketches before you make a finished drawing or do you jump right into it. Maybe, draw all the layers on top of each other (i.e. shading on top of a drawing of the structure on top of a gesture drawing) or is you're drawing process completely different when working on something you want looking complete. Done on A4 paper with 0.5mm HB lead
added a new topicPortrait In Graphite feels off, Critique/Advice appreciated
Last few portraits I've been drawing feel kind of off and I cant put my finger on why exactly. They have an almost uncanny valley feel to them and my eyes seem to be pushed away from the face. Here's my latest one, would love some pointers on what I should be focusing on.
