i have been drawing seriously for 7 mounth so not that long, after doodling for many years. I started 7 mounth ago with the Proko figure course which im stil on and in the end of the measurement asignment. i have been doing the drawabox on the side too, where im at the lesson 3. im a big fan of realistic art mostly Artists that i like for examples are - Jeremy geddes - Wlop - Eliza ivanova - Stephen Bauman - zhaoyang3665 as a few I was thiking of after being done with the proko figure to either go to the anatomy or portrait course, i has also been thinking of trying the barque book, or loomis or michael hampotons book on figure drawing. and would also love to hear peoples opinions on the bargues what would you guys receomend for me to go next thinking of the kind of art i like? either what of the courses i mentioned or if u got any other ideas of courses out there thank you in advance :D
i have now been trying to figure out the gesture of this pose for a LONG time this is a couple of my tries for today i would love to see others attempt, to maybe kicjstart some ideas of this poses gesture or just some feedback anything can be helpfull
figure drawing, one 5 min and two 1 min of same pose
i tried the assignment #1 in the Mannequinization part again after been following steve huston at NMA for 2 weeks also. side note im not done with the prokos figure course im only at the exagetaration part xD i tried one 5 min drawing where i focus on the the way steve huston break down the figure then i did 2, 1 min drawings below the right where i only focus on the gesture and the left where i focus on the robo bean and the gesture at the same time. im kinda curious waht people think about the way i break the pose down, and on the 3 difftrent ways i do it and for any feedback on the diffrent ways i did it would more then love some feedback
i have been thinking for some time of difftrent ways of learning and i tried for a mounth ago to take a picture of a figure, then traced the structure of it and then after i redrawed the structure myself without tracing. and this gave me a realy good result of how the drawing looked and then today i saw this video today of someone talking about this same idea of learning and i became curious about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dERSl-bQNr8 but here comes my question about it, is this a good way to learn, if i do this for a long time will my brain learn from this less then if i just try to draw the structure out from just observing the refrence? or will it learn just as much? or more?
so i just got two art books, but im not quite sure what the best way is to tackle them, since they dont got any "assignments" in them. so i would love to hear from other people how they tackle this problem. i thought that maybe it would be a good idea to the following for the FORCE figure drwaing book 1. try and copy some of his gesture drawing 2. try and analyse why he does as he does 3. then try and do the same thing for a gesture drwaing session 4. and then do step 1- 3 one more time with the same drawings 5. go to next page and repeat 1- 4 do you guys and girls think this is a good way of practice? a bad way? or do you have some others ideas i also could try? thank you in advance
