Wow, you keep improving. Awesome to see! Tips on your most recent drawing:
- Most forms can be round or boxy. Knees tend to usually be boxier so I would search for those characteristics most of the time. When the knee bends the femurs roll back like a rocking chair and the joint opens up. So what maybe was a box when the knee was straight really becomes more like two boxes when it opens.
- If you are going to do a shadow from the figure on the ground (and I recommend you do) take greater care with it. It gives us a lot of context and information about the pose and it’s important for the illusion.
- Be conscious of bilateral symmetry. One shoulder appears more massive than the other.
- If one pectoralis is reaching backwards then think about how to show that more like a cylinder to get it to foreshorten.
Keep up the great work!September 2, 2020 at 1:41 pm #700364September 2, 2020 at 2:02 pm #700372erikdennesParticipant
That looks killer. Really nice job. Maybe I need to take a few days off so I can improve as much as you!September 4, 2020 at 8:37 am #720207September 4, 2020 at 11:23 am #730804Marjolein PParticipantNo badges. No points.
What kind of pencil do you use? Nice neck study. ☺️September 5, 2020 at 6:04 am #742463September 5, 2020 at 11:26 am #743001ChristopherParticipantNo badges. No points.
besides your days off the challenge it seems like your big figure drawing that you finished on day 36 made something click for you?
I mean you made a huge jump in your rendering skills. You were already pretty accurate in your longer careful drawings so add those new shading abilities and now I for myself am not even able to critique you anymore. Only if there would be anatomical errors which I don’t know enough of myself.
So incredible improvement 👍September 5, 2020 at 11:39 am #743018erikdennesParticipant
Really nice study. You really get the feel of the form of the musculature. Kudos.September 7, 2020 at 3:07 pm #747741
i really appreciate that, Erik . Maybe putting in these long hours have finally started to pay off
how’s it going, Christopher . Honestly, I was doing all of this foundation work and needed a challenge. Watching Iliya draw is really inspiring, and motivated me to push myself and work at a larger scale, which has been a goal of mine . Thanks for checking in
– charcoal on paper 18×24 inches
– i find drawing the back of any figure still very difficultSeptember 8, 2020 at 4:43 pm #749943September 9, 2020 at 1:27 pm #751719September 10, 2020 at 4:30 pm #753799
– the process is a bit slow at the moment
– working on this and a couple of other things..
– also, i’ll be off the grid for awhile, but I’ll post as soon as I get back on!September 10, 2020 at 8:16 pm #754138NatashaParticipant
I just finished this chapter and it was a bear! Nice rendering.September 15, 2020 at 11:45 am #762966
hah it was and then some..
i’ve actually skipped around all these chapters, but decided to come back and do the assignments in a much larger scale
since that’s what my personal work will be mainly focused around
by the way, thanks
– i feel that I’m finished with this particular assignment
– liking the look/idea of leaving the other leg a few steps behind what I consider completionSeptember 17, 2020 at 11:05 am #765972
