Quick sketches for Glenn Villpu’s course on drawing materials. Attempted some from life, but the wind was doing my box in, so most are from NMA reference. Quality very uneven. For the action poses i forced myself to only look at the photo for a half second then draw from memory.
Aborted Tintoretto study. Going to try this one again as I love the original drawing so much.August 14, 2021 at 8:44 am #1672891
Sorry about the crap photos – but I’m on holiday, gimme a break!August 14, 2021 at 9:43 am #1672932Marcolino EstuardoParticipantNo badges. No points.August 15, 2021 at 2:38 am #1675396
Thanks! Interesting that you’d pick that one out – felt like a bit of a scribble to me. What do you feel is working about it?
Yeah, Tintoretto. The amount of knowledge and information he can communicate through just a few carefully placed marks. Mind blowing.August 15, 2021 at 12:13 pm #1677536Marcolino EstuardoParticipantNo badges. No points.
You indicated the notch (brow, eye socket, cheekbone), there’s a direct ‘thrust’ from her forward lean, the expressions/attitudes of the arms and legs.August 15, 2021 at 2:06 pm #1677646August 16, 2021 at 3:10 pm #1679796August 16, 2021 at 3:12 pm #1679813

I’ve been plugging away at my first piece for Iliya’s digitial figure painting course tonight. Starting to get a bit more comfortable with Procreate, or at least finding brushes that I like. My main worry with this at the moment is that the treatment is a little inconsistent from area to area. Hopefully I can unify everything before submission.August 18, 2021 at 2:42 pm #1687145August 19, 2021 at 8:37 am #1687892August 19, 2021 at 2:30 pm #1688581August 20, 2021 at 2:06 pm #1689901August 21, 2021 at 2:49 pm #1690959August 22, 2021 at 2:01 pm #1695489
I’ve been asked by a friend to do a drawing of her two kids, and am working from photographs that she has supplied. She doesn;t have a picture of the two of them together, so I’ve been putting together thumbnails placing them together in the frame and trying to fugure out a tonal arrangement that I like.
Any feedback or advice on these would be much appreciated. The boy is seated in a cross legged position and the girl is jumping, and although I’m not trying to place them together in a cohesive space, I feel like it will look awkward to have their legs so close to each other given the difference in their actions. I’m trying to find a satisfying way of obscuring them or leaving them kind of vague, but I’m not sure any of these are working very well.
